The Duellists. This is the best movie ever made.

And in no particular order:

Dr Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

A Clockwork Orange.

Three Kings.

American Psycho.

I have a hard time narrowing it down as I love movies.

But here are a few I like, and I can surely add to it easily.


Big Trouble in little China

Hot Shots Part Deux

Kentucky Fried Movie

Kelly's Heros

Young Frankenstein

Murder by Death



McCragge

Yeah, it's an Andrei Tarkovsky film, probably his best. I can't recommend it enough, really - beware, though, it's long, hard and rambling so you have to be in the mood to sit down and watch a film rather than just want to pass a few hours being entertained. If you put the effort in, though, it's an incredible film.


yeah, that is kind of what I figured, and is why I never really picked it up. I am sure I'll get around to it sometime.


You'll be pleased that you did.

I pretty much agree with most of the posts above, but here's my list anyway (in no order):
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (seeing as Life of Brian got a mention earlier).
Godfather Part 1
Amelie
Mysterious Skin

The most powerful film I have ever seen is Two Towns of Jasper.

I dunno how easy it is to get hold of, but it really is an amazing film. Everyone should see it.

On a lighter note, honourable mentions to the Hotshots films and the Toy Story films.

Really easy. It sounds like an excellent film.

Cheers Grim, I never thought of looking on Amazon! D'oh :roll: The documentary-makers are absolutely top-notch: they don't try and sell you a line with a trendy soundtrack like Michael Moore does (not that he's terrible), they are just there, pretty much straight after the story breaks, recording the reactions. The outrage hits you like a wave.

So yeah, I can't recommend the film enough, although if you want chilled-out Sunday night viewing the Hot Shots movies are definitely more appropriate.

Well, since it lives, I will add my top five (in particular order).

1)Falling Down-William 'D-Fens' Foster is everything I aspire to be.
2)Trailer Park Boys Countdown to Liquor Day-Just watched this today, and it is fully as funny as the series, a rare thing with tv/movie translations.
3)Dirty Pretty Things-The only semi-realistic movie about love I have ever seen.
4)The Return of the Dragon (originally Meng long guo jiang)-Bruce Lee beats up Chuck Norris, 'nuff said.
5)Chocolate-Not the one with Johnny Depp, this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1183252/

It would probably change if I could remember more of the movies I have seen (it has to be in the high hundreds), although Falling Down will always be at the top.

Hey, just discovered this tiny section! Let's go with the movies, although only five is a difficult list to do:

Some Coppola... Apocalypse now not redux.
Conan the Barbarian is the movie that made my teenages. So, it has to be there.
The good, the bad and the ugly. Or almost any other Eastwood thing. As performer or as director.
Boogie nights, best movie ever for turning you on (in an emotional sense, of course).
Now, a beautiful Kurosawa thing... Seven Samurai are there, but I prefer Kagemusha for some reasons. Yes, it's more an order and all that jazz, but I like it. So many gorgeous paintings in motion in this movie!

Can we make it a ten movies list? Pleeeez! Yes? OK, 'ere we go:

The last emperor, Mad Max (El loco Max) II -less psycological, more punk than the first one. It depends on the day- some Kubrick, either Full Metal Jacket or Barry Lyndon (more visual pleasure), Dersu Uzala (more Kurosawa) and...uhh, yeah, some crazy comedy: Le llamaban Trinidad (don't know the name in english) Bud Spencer and Terence Hill doing their thing. Best thing ever for an evening with friends, beers and pizzas.

Can we make it a fifteen? Noooooo! Booh, go home!!

yeah I can never give a proper answer to these sorts of questions as it depends on what mood i'm in at the time & what i've watched recently.

As of right now it'd be

Repo Men
Terminator 2 Special Edition (that's always here)
Inception
Salute of the Jugger
Empire Strikes Back
