1. Fight Club - It was so different from anything I'd ever seen. I immediately wanted to go and rewrite the soundtrack. This movie was everything I thought inside and never said out loud. It's a classic.
2. Pineapple Express - I still do the robot when I start to cough.
3. Catch Me If You Can - I NEEDED to know what happened to this guy. This movie was fantastic. I'm not sure who directed it, but the small details are fabulous.

Inglourious Basterds - Just, amazing
Clerks - funniest movie ever
Anchorman - 2nd funniest movie ever
#14
Inglorious basterds - Saw it recently and it's stuck in the memory. It's perfect for me as it's in the 3 languages I speak. The Jew Hunter is one of the best characters ever.

Shawshank Redemption - Cliched (sorry no accent!) I know but I really enjoy it every time i see it. It Just fascinates me.

The Wave (Die Welle) - A german film and it's my favourite. It's brilliantly done and has such a great message.
#15
1. Hard Candy Ellen Page is awesome, Patrick Wilson is awesome, Sandrah Oh is awesome, the whole damn film is awesome.

2. Ken Park Fucking disturbing as hell, but the cast is amazing and the film as a whole is beautiful.

3. Requiem for a Dream Brilliant acting, script, plot, and the little 'hip-hop montages' or whatever they're called are stunning.
#16
1. LOTR series, (If I can't have the whole series I choose Return of the king)

2. Fight-club
First watched it before I ever heard of it on the internet and loved it ever since, Clever,funny, immersive.Just a perfect film.

1: The Empire Strikes Back.

Greatest plot twist of all time. Not to mention to badassery of Yoda and AT-AT walkers.

2: American History X

Ed Norton is the man. The story is absolutely wonderful and chilling at the same time. AND it introduced us to curb stomping.

3. Ocean's Eleven

Basicly it's the cool factor. Everyone in the movie is cool (even Matt Damon manages to be cool). And well the montage where they show how they pulled the heist is epic.

Honorable mentions:
Capricorn One
Boondock Saints
Goodfellas

Wayne's World: I've about memorized the script. In my opinion the greatest movie ever. It's just so damned fantastic.

V for Vendetta: A great movie on a fantastic graphic novel. I love everything this movie stands for.

Superbad: True in so many ways. Another one of the "I can recite every line" movies.

Blow: Incredible true story, Johnny Depp is a genius

Inglourious Basterds: instant classic
#21
1. Lord of War

I love the dialogues, the drama and the fact that this probably happens all over the world. The acting too, is brilliant.

2. Requiem for a Dream/The Fountain

I can't decide between the two. They're both made by Arnofsky and scored by Mansell, that makes them amazing anyways. On top of that, they're very emotionally charged. I remember feeling insanely helpless the first time i saw Requiem for a Dream, and the Fountain made me tear up at parts. The actors execute it brilliantly too.

3. Shawshank Redemption

Brilliant storyline. Words cannot do justice to how good this is.

Honorable mentions: Good Will Hunting, Scent of a Woman, all of Stanley Kubrick's movies.
#22
1. apocolapyse now, looks amazing, stroies amazing, shows madness of war

1. The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou - because Wes Anderson is fucking brilliant.

It's hard to choose three, because there's the movies that I think are the best at giving me entertainment, and then there's those that i think are the best at making me think, and then there are those that I think have the best stories in general. So:
Comedy - Kung Pow
'Wow, my mind is blown' - A Clockwork Orange
Generally Awesome - Forrest Gump
#26
1. Forrest Gump~ I laughed,I cried. Great acting,music and story

2. Ed Wood- Brilliant acting from Johnny Depp. Based on the life of one of my personal heroes

3. Saving Private Ryan-Haunting
Lifes a grave and I dig it!

Fight Club - Great movie. All around awesome. Action, awesome acting, a movie philosophy that makes you think... You name it. Edit: Also, Pixies.
The Matrix - About the same, only more action and less thinking. Speaks directly to that Paranoid part of me.
The Wall - Ditto, only less action and more thinking. Plus it's mother****in' Pink Floyd!

American Psycho - The best film adaptation of a novel. Great acting, great and appropriate scoring, and really captures the spirit of the novel's theme.

Amadeus - Highly creative interpretation of Mozart. Superb acting and cinematography. Everything is fitted seamlessly.

Terminator 2 - Great action story with a heart.

on top of those, I suppose... Die Hard, it wrote the book of cliches for action movies, and is still the best one ever.

In no particular order:

1. Serenity - An amazing futuristic space story with western themes through out, great characters (In my opinion, Nathan Fillion's role as Mal was his best role yet), lots of great lines, lots of action, space zombies, and a ninja dude who makes people fall on his sword.

2. The Dark Knight - Need I say more?

3. The Departed - Great cast, great director, great story, great ending, great lines, and a great theme song ("I'm Shipping Up to Boston" - Dropkick Murphys).

I can watch all 3 of those movies over and over and never get sick of them. That's probably the main reason why they are my most favorite.

1. Vanilla Sky. The emotion is just so well portrayed. And such an amazing and unique story. GREAT music to top it all off... oh and Kurt Russel.

2. The Life Aquatic. First of all, Bill Murray. And second of all, it always immerses me every time I watch it. The world that the film creates is just great, and every scene to the next is quaint and mellow, but at the same time engaging.

3. This is a tough one, and I doubt I could fill this slot for sure. But I'm going with The Dark Knight. It was just SO well done, to the smallest detail. Flawless casting. The setting and mood, that of a 70's crime drama, also could not have been better. Perfect music in this one as well. I'd say any movie I really enjoy has great music. All that said, I doubt this would make my top 3 if it weren't for Ledger's performance. However that was only one part of a masterpiece.

Honorable mention:

The Village. SUCH good dialogue. Excellent mood. Another one with extremely good casting. William Hurt's best movie by far.

Life Is Beautiful. It's a rare occasion for such a bleak and terrible occurrence to be portrayed in such an uplifting light. Especially at the end, with such a tragic death, but still you're smiling.

It's A Wonderful Life. I'm a sucker for Christmas stories. A Christmas Carol is my favorite story of all time, and this one comes in close second. Unfortunately A Christmas Carol has not yet received a film adaptation that captures it's emotions. But It's A Wonderful Life fills in the gap quite well. SUCH a great ending!

Shawshank Redeption: It's interesting. I don't know what I think makes it worth watching, I just think it is.

2001: A Space Odyssey ... Simply epic, perfectly constructed, and moves me every time I see it. From the first time I watched it at a young age, it profoundly effected me, and it still makes me think every time I see it.

Ikiru (To Live) ... "Schichinin no samurai" is a perfect movie and one of my favourites by Kurosawa, but Ikiru just feels so much more personal and poignant. Makes me think about what I have accomplished in my life; have I done anything meaningful with it? How will others remember me if I were to die today? This is a movie I will watch again and again, and it will just get more and more powerful as I grow older.

La Battaglia di Algeri (The Battle of Algiers) ... A top contender for best war movie ever made, even if its about a resistance movement rather than war per se. Amazingly realistic, it looks like a documentary news reel footage. It shows sympathy for the victims of both sides of the conflict while providing insights into the nature of war, occupation, and resistance, and all the applicable ethical / moral questions. Provides insight into all sorts of conflict, past and present, and is a must see for anyone interested in politics and international relations.

Glengarry Glen Ross ... Brilliantly written, filmed, and acted. "Death of a Salesman" doesn't have shit on this film.

Trainspotting ... Extremely stylish adaptation of Welsh's novel, I think this is Boyle's best film, even better than Slumdog Millionaire and 28 Days Later. One of the best movies about drug use ever made, and certainly the best movie that takes place in a Scotish setting that I've seen.

Hoop Dreams ... My favourite documentary of all time. The makers follow around two inner city kids with dreams of making it big for over four years, from the time they are discovered by scouts on the street and given scholarships to St. Josephs to the end of their school years. This movie is about so many things, not just basketball. I can't describe it in so few words. Things progress so perfectly, if this was a fictional film you would think it unbelievable and scoff at the cliches, but its all breathtakingly real. A powerful emotional film that offers a look at the challenges of inner city life and the path so many attempt to take in hopes of making the NBA. Watch it.

Jacob's Ladder ... The best psychological thriller ever. Some people have found some of the elements in the film cliche, but they are judging without taking a close enough look. The film is beautifully acted and filmed (gorgeous visual aesthetics in every scene), and all the plot devices used aren't applied for their own sake, to be 'cool' or 'tricky', but because they impart specific emotional and symoblic meanings. Whether you take in the film viscerally or cerebrally, this is an amazing watch. A film you will want to watch over and over again to take in the superabundance of symbolism and thematic elements and develop your personal interpretation of.


Sorry, waaaaaay too hard to pick just three. Also kind of messed up on opiates and other stuff atm, so sorry about the descriptions being badly written. Don't write off the above films just because I did a shite job of advocating them, they are all amazing and deserve a watch.

I kind of think The Dark Knight is really overrated. Ledger is awesome in it, but people are acting like its the best thing ever made, which IMDB reflects (though their list has alot of undeserving films on it). Its still a really good film though, just not a masterpiece.

Anyways, props for having Serenity on there. I really liked it. Just wondering though, did you watch Firefly (series)? I'm assuming you did, but if for some crazy reason you didn't you really need to. It took alot of lobbying from fans to get Serenity made, and the main attraction for me is that its a continuation of the Firefly story (bastards at FOX canceled it! ), as a stand alone feature I don't think its as good.
