Farmington’s Favorite Films


Bode Jensen, Entertainment Reporter

Determining the best movie of all time is not an easy decision, it largely chalks up to personal preference and what you enjoy. Over 100 FHS students have been asked what the best movie of all time is, here are the most popular responses.

Inception (2010)

This Sci-fi action flick from Director Christopher Nolan is a mind-bending adventure that follows Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio), a criminal with the ability to enter people’s dreams on multiple levels. This ability, while immensely useful, has cost Cobb his wife’s life.

The Dark Knight (2008)

Arguably the best Batman movie and even greatest comic book movie of all time, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight sees Batman (Christian Bale) fight off the Joker (Heath Ledger) as he tears down Gotham City’s trust in the cape crusader.

Hot Rod (2007)

This 2007 comedy from Director Akiva Schaffer Follows the story of “stuntman” Rod Kimble (Andy Samberg) as he prepares to execute a near impossible 15 bus jump to raise money for his stepfather’s life saving heart surgery.

“Interesting, funny, very classic, very nostalgic. Whenever me and my dad and brothers go out dirt bike riding we usually watch Hot Rod, Dum and Dummer, some other stuff” Junior Seth Astle said when asked why he loves Hot Rod.

Toy Story (1995)

For being Pixar’s first film, and the very first CG animated movie, 1995’s Toy Story is still considered the best by many. The film gives audiences a look into the lives of toys and the struggles of being replaced. Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) is a vintage cowboy doll owned by a kid named Andy. When Andy phases out of western toys with the introduction of space ranger Buzz Lightyear (voiced by Tim Allen), Woody and Buzz must learn to see eye to eye to survive the mutilation in store from Andy’s neighbour Sid.

“Good movie, classic, never not good” Junior Anderson Duke said about Toy Story.
