Of course we know that they liked Natural Born Killers, but were there any other specific films they referred to as "favourites" at all? Or even just films that they referenced in passing in their Journals?

Interesting, Seven Samurai wouldn't have come to mind otherwise. Thanks!

He used to watch old movies with his parents and that was one of them. He liked the fight sequence because he was really interesting in theatre and film, so he thought that was pretty cool.

Dylan was supposed to see it on April 21 with Devon....

I am not sure if he and Eric saw it before though.

Dylan Klebold:


Alien: Eric drew the logo in Dylan’s 1998 yearbook [026495]

Aliens: Written on a list of movies in Dylan’s yearbook [026496]

Alien Resurrection: Written on a list of movies in Dylan’s 1998 yearbook [026496]

Beach Babes 2: Cavegirl Island: Dylan mentioned in Eric’s yearbook “we need to find Cavegirl Island & Enemy Gold for home entertainment [026238]

The Breakfast Club: After Brooks auditioned at the Ascot Theatre on March 28th, 1999, he told Meg Beck that he was one of the kids who had come to the theatre from Columbine (Dylan was included in this group) and that he was still interested in talking to her about putting on a play. When she asked what it would be about, he said it was something like the movie “Chasing Amy,” and was called “A Guy Named Steve,” all of which were based on real life events of his and his friends' friends suicide, drugs, abortion, etc. She said she didn't think this is what they really wanted at the Ascot, and he said, it was actually uplifting, because at the end, everyone overcomes all this adversity. [013013 38/675]
Brooks went on to say that there were other plays they wanted to produce, like the Breakfast Club. He said they had a lot of contacts in the movie business, like with directors, writers, etc. and including Steven Segall. They knew no one had the rights to The Breakfast Club, and that they could the script signed over to them. He also mentioned a movie called “4 Rooms” which could be made into a play.” [013014 39/675] It's unlikely that Dylan still wanted to be involved with the production at this time, considering that he was planning on being dead in 3 weeks, but I thought it was still worth mentioning.

Catt Ballou: Sue writes in reference to Dylan getting ready for prom, “He stood patiently while Tom awkwardly twisted tiny pieces of metal and plastic through the many buttonholes. The bow tie stumped Tom, and Dylan wrestled it away to try it himself; together, the two consummate problem-solvers figured it out. I sat on the bed to keep them company and told Dylan he looked like Lee Marvin getting outfitted in Western finery Cat Ballou, one of our family favorites. Both he and Tom laughed. [A Mother's Reckoning pg. 234]

Chasing Amy: After Brooks auditioned at the Ascot Theatre on March 28th, 1999, he told Meg Beck that he was one of the kids who had come to the theatre from Columbine (Dylan was included in this group) and that he was still interested in talking to her about putting on a play. When she asked what it would be about, he said it was something like the movie “Chasing Amy,” and was called “A Guy Named Steve,” all of which were based on real life events of his and his friends' friends suicide, drugs, abortion, etc. She said she didn't think this is what they really wanted at the Ascot, and he said, it was actually uplifting, because at the end, everyone overcomes all this adversity.

Seven Samurai: “One night at the end of February, I surprised Tom and Dylan by bringing home a couple of fruit pies and Seven Samurai, a classic Japanese film from the 1950s directed by Akira Kurosawa. Dylan had heard about Seven Samurai in a class at school, and was curious about it. I’d never seen it, although I knew the American Western remake from the sixties, The Magnificent Seven. Snowy and cold outside, it seemed like the perfect night to light a fire, pig out, and watch movie, but I worried about my choice as soon as the film began: I wasn’t sure Dylan was going to stick around for a long, black-and-white, subtitled movie about a sixteenth-century Japanese village. I was wrong. Dylan was spellbound; we all were.” “After the closing credits rolled, Tom, Dylan, and I stayed up late on the couch, talking about some of the more remarkable scenes. Because he’d made videos and done sound for plays, Dylan had deep appreciation for the technical challenges the movie presented. He was particularly knocked out by a complicated choreographed battle scene staged in downpour, which I would come to learn had inspired directors like Martin Scorsese. I was thrilled he’d appreciated the subtle artistry of the film.” [A Mother’s Reckoning pg. 221]

Uh, pretty sure he wrote it out as E1M3, which is a level in Doom, and the "Nick" referred to in this passage is one of his friends. There is no character named Nick in the movie.

Otherwise, great list. Lot of 90's classics in there, as expected.

Dylan. Sue wrote, “One night at the end of February, I surprised Tom and Dylan by bringing home a couple of fruit pies and Seven Samurai, a classic Japanese film from the 1950s directed by Akira Kurosawa. Dylan had heard about Seven Samurai in a class at school, and was curious about it. I’d never seen it, although I knew the American Western remake from the sixties, The Magnificent Seven. Snowy and cold outside, it seemed like the perfect night to light a fire, pig out, and watch movie, but I worried about my choice as soon as the film began: I wasn’t sure Dylan was going to stick around for a long, black-and-white, subtitled movie about a sixteenth-century Japanese village. I was wrong. Dylan was spellbound; we all were.” “After the closing credits rolled, Tom, Dylan, and I stayed up late on the couch, talking about some of the more remarkable scenes. Because he’d made videos and done sound for plays, Dylan had deep appreciation for the technical challenges the movie presented. He was particularly knocked out by a complicated choreographed battle scene staged in downpour, which I would come to learn had inspired directors like Martin Scorsese. I was thrilled he’d appreciated the subtle artistry of the film.”

48. UHF (1989)

Dylan. According to Brooks Brown, Dylan grew up watching this film “religiously.”

In reference to the Behind Blackjack footage and the Frankenstein Roast video respectively, Brooks writes, “For the first part of the tape, we did interviews with the cast and crew about their favorite memories of Mrs. Caruthers. We then added in footage from rehearsal, along with scenes from the movie Young Frankenstein.”

Of course we know that they liked Natural Born Killers, but were there any other specific films they referred to as "favourites" at all? Or even just films that they referenced in passing in their Journals?

Dylan liked Pulp Fiction, Lost Highway, Seven Samurai and Kind Hearts and Coronets.

Eric also had a list including Pulp Fiction and Lost Highway, on top of what Sadgasm has mentioned above. I think that's a good answer for next after NBK for films they both liked. Lost Highway's director has a reputation for pseudointellectual films - so it does seem perfect for them. Vampires and The Evil Dead franchise also a good one to mention, probably next on the list.

Much crossover between Evil Dead and the video games as well. Not only making the BFG say "Swallow This" which is the best bit to mention, but the chainsaw in DOOM, everything about Duke Nukem 3D (the cover, everything Duke says), and the hands in Blood (hated them) are all Evil Dead references. Not only is it a film they liked but it helps you understand the video games they liked. It does double duty, so to speak.

And I did not know Dylan liked UHF. "big if true".

Impressive list on the whole but can tell you need to play some more DOOM. It's E1M3, first episode third map of DOOM, not Nightmare on Elm Street 3. The first level of DOOM with a secret exit, and some "nukage" to fall into, presumably what he's talking about.

Also, I'd be curious whether they meant Doom I or Doom II and which episode, but the video with the journalists relaying what they saw on the Basement Tapes, one mentions it was the "third level of DOOM" they wanted to be in in the afterlife. Well, taken straightforwardly, that would mean DOOM I first episode map 3...i. e. E1M3.
