I'm pretty sure we have a thread for this already, but I couldn't find it this morning. Can anyone find it? If not... what belongs on that list?]
Personally, I think it's kind of a futile exercise. I'm with Peter Bogdanovich, who says that any movie made for the big screen is not the same movie on a small screen... but then, most movies that are pretty much what Hitchcock described as "photographs of people talking" don't really deserve a big screen in the first place.
So, of course, any thread we might have had probably starts with stuff like this:
2001: A Space Odyssey
Lawrence of Arabia
Star Wars, etc.
Lord of the Rings, etc.
Wings of Desire
There Will Be Blood and anything else by Anderson
