Yep.  Only one I haven't see is Full Metal Jacket, and though I have read a lot about it, I hesitate to narrow its theme down to "war bad" considering the drilling you gave mod-age over saying the same thing about The Thin Red Line.  I guess saying I haven't seen "a lot" was the wrong wording.  But, one is "a lot" for Kubrick.

kubrick left the bad and good judgements after he made Spartacus. that's not even what he's about.

my generalizations were "for shucks", i wasn't proposing a new life philosophy. but i can back em up if u wish to get into it.

Kubrick was such a perfectionist. Picking the best Kubrick film for me would be like having to choose which one of my (future) seven children i like best.

I love all of them and they're all positively perfect (in my eyes)

funny thing is my first ever favorite Clork, is now near the bottom of the list..

Me too, now that I think of it... Dr. Strangelove has also slided to the bottom for me.

Can you expound on your 2001 placement, though?

interesting thing about 2001: i remember reading a kubrick interview in which he was talking about how he loved to hear what little kids had to say about it and more importantly- how they reacted- b/c they weren't concerned with the "why" and the "how" as much as the experience itself. (i'm paraphrasing from the interview here obviously but it makes sense nonetheless)

i didn't actually see 2001 until late in my movie watching career (freshman year of college surprisingly) clockwork was my first kubrick experience, then strangelove. i don't even think i could pick a favorite, but i can say that the one(s) that hold up best for me on repeat viewings are full metal and EWS.

my lil bro who is 8 years old has watched 2001 a couple of times with me... he likes it probably coz i like it, but he cracks up everytime with the monkey parts  especially when he is slamming the bone on the ground and when he throws the bone up.  im like WOWWWWWW and hes laughing his heart out.  i dont know what hes thinking though, if the movie is really supposed to be funny or he thinks it stupid.

Its the one that kicked every other director in the nuts with its true
artistic genius

Seen em all. However, I can't sit through #9 and #10 again.

1. Clockwork Orange (The dialogue. The music. My god, the music. The visuals! So good..)
2. 2001: A Space Odyssey (What a toss-up! Is this my #1 favorite or is Clockwork Orange? Tough call..)
3. The Shining (I watch this at least once a year.)
4. Eyes Wide Shut (The best looking Kubrick film. Nicole Kidman isn't bad looking either.)
5. Dr. Strangelove ("Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room.")
6. Paths of Glory (The only Kubrick film that has brought me to tears.)
7. Full Metal Jacket (As soon as the film leaves boot camp, it goes downhill.)
8. Barry Lyndon (Great film. I love the lighting.)
9. Lolita (Bleh. It was alright. Perhaps the only so-so Kubrick film for me.)
10. Spartacus (Too long. Way too long. It is a good film, but I can't watch this again.)
