    10) Ghostbusters I/II
    9) After Hours (I've only seen it the once, but class film)
    8) Rocky I/II
    7) Trainspotting
    6) Dawn of the Dead
    5) Goodfellas
    4) Godfather I/II
    3) The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
    2) Blade Runner (Director's Cut)
    1) Once Upon a Time in America

    "Once Upon a Time in America" is the greatest film every made, no doubt about it. It looks gorgeous, hints at an ambiguous meaning within the non-linear structure and has excellent performances all round from the cast. It has in Robert De Niro's "Noodles" one of the least empathetic protagonists I've ever come across. I'm sick and tired of watching and reading characters feeling sorry for themselves. I hate over-sentimentality. With "Noodles", there is next to nothing to grant him empathy, especially the final scene, which hints that he might have transferred his guilt over to his best buddy, Max (James Woods). I don't know if anyone from Britain will remember the Channel 4 100 Greatest Films list a few years back, but "Once Upon" wasn't on the list. Why why why! Sergio Leone was a cinematic genius, this film is a masterpiece.

    My imagination. But I drop by the real world for m
    Ten of my favorite films, here they are. Don’t ask me to order them, that would be too hard.

    Good morning Vietnam
    Highlights: What a Wonderful World, anything with his English Class or when he’s on the radio.

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day
    Highlights: Sarah in the playground, any scene at the asylum.

    Princess Mononoke
    Highlights: The little tree spirits (Cute!), A****aka (Edit: praise the autocensor!) vs Nago.

    Crouching Tiger, hidden dragon
    Highlights: All the fight scenes.

    The Shawshank Redemption (Cliché choice, I know but a damn good film)
    Highlights: Brooks on the outside, the opera bit (I can’t believe Stephen King thinks this scene is awful).

    Lord of the Rings: the Two Towers
    Highlights: Where is the horse and the rider? Like in the great tales, Mr Frodo, the ones that really matter.

    Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior
    Highlights: The awesome eighties punk rock costumes, the final car chase

    Life of Brian
    Highlights: Brains Mum, Brian gets crucified (always look on the bright side of life), opening credits (A boy called Brian)

    The Goonies
    Highlights: Chunk confesses everything. Even though it’s not really part of the film the cast reunion commentary on the DVD is fantastic.

    Chicken Run
    Highlights: Anything with the knitting chicken or Mr. Tweedy.

    1. The Godfather
    2. Citizen Kane
    3. Requiem for a Dream

    Those are my 3 favourites, the rest change but it will take something extraordinary to displace any of these 3.

    4. Jacob's Ladder

    5. The Wickerman (the original, not the godawful remake)

    edit: While compiling the list, I forgot another of my favourites- Metropolis (1927), which would fit in at this point. Just pretend the rest are one number higher, giving me a list of 11 :p

    6. Matrix trilogy

    7. Monty Python Life of Brian - I don't care if it's childish, there's no scene in any movie I've seen as funny as the one with Pilate's friend.

    8. Black Orpheus

    9. The Godfather II

    10. Martyrs (French horror movie)

    I hardly watch movies nowadays, so I'll only give five of my favourites (or at lest the most memorable ones). This list probably isn't accurate since it's pretty late and I can't think of anything else.

    5- Spider-Man (the first one)

    4- Akira

    3- The Lion King (childish, yes, but it still holds a place in my heart)

    2- Pixar's 'Up'

    1- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

    My top 10:
    1. A Christmas Story
    Reason: While it may not be something I can watch at any given time, I watch this movie every Christmas at least twice and have done so ever since 1987. And yes, I enjoy it thoroughly each and every time.

    2. A Fistful of Dollars
    Reason: Do I really need a reason?!

    3. Yojimbo
    Reason: Again, do I need a reason?!

    4. The Man Who Knew Too Much
    Reason: The first Hitchcock movie I've seen and the one I loved the most.

    5. Taxi Driver
    Reason: Growing up there were two movies my friends were never allowed to see based purely on the perception alone, Taxi Driver and #6 on my list. However, I was the one who saw both and I was the one who conveyed how amazing both were. Oh, and I had a crush on De Niro. /drool

    6. A Clockwork Orange
    Reason: There was something evil about this movie. It made me cringe, but I loved every scene. When I first saw it I was too young to comprehend what the movie was about, but now that I'm a bit wiser ten years later I pretend to know exactly what the movie represented.

    7. Angela's Ashes
    Reason: 'cause I'm a sucker for a good Irish story.

    8. American History X
    Reason: I was a skinhead growing up and when I saw this movie it cemented my belief that racism and all forms of bigotry was born out of and fed by absolute idiocy.

    9. Shaun of the Dead
    Reason: No reason needed, really.

    10. 28 Days Later
    Reason: Finally, a horror movie that made me afraid of something. Granted, the sequel to it sucked out loud, but the original was a catharsis in the form of a DVD for me.

    Can the two people who listed Requiem for a Dream please tell me WHY? Worst movie I've ever seen!

    My top movies...

    While historically inaccurate (ok, let's go with completely screwed up) this is epic storytelling at its best!

    ContactFor cementing in me the belief in extra terrestrials

    Star Trek (2009)
    For being truly spectacular as a stand alone movie. I've never been into Star Trek, but I could watch this as a complete newcomer and it was riveting!

    Old School
    Three words: Frank. The. Tank.

    Liam Neeson's chilling voice; and for being a truly emotional ride the whole way through.

    I can really only do five as well.

    #1 Bella (Director: Alejandro Monteverde)
    Everything about this film just exudes beauty and brilliance. It's truly heartwrenching and makes you ask those questions you'd rather avoid most times. It handles a delicate issue very, very well. Everyone needs to watch this film.

    #2 The Nightmare Before Christmas (Tim Burton)
    I know, I know. It's got that whole "cult status" thing about it, but NBM is one of the best movies of all time. Not only is the story unique, but it manages to be extremely cute and somewhat scary at the same time. Plus, if you know anything about stop-animation, you'd know how much effort the entire crew put into this movie.

    #3 Trainspotting (Danny Boyle)
    The soundtrack and the opening narrative were what got me interested in this film. (And Ewan McGreggor. ;) ) During the film, I laughed, teared up, and was totally repulsed. It does more than push the boundaries as it's rife with every taboo you could think of, and while it's superficially known for it's druggie tales, I think the product was one of the most powerful films about disillusioned and isolated youth.

    #4 Ghost Town (David Koepp)
    This is the funniest comedy you'll ever see. Although the plot is fairly dull (a man can see ghosts; big whoop) the dry wit and humor is absolutely hilarious. I can watch this movie over, and over, and over again and still be falling off the couch.

    ...I, uh, guess I can only get to four.
