Nothing's better than Top Gun.
Bladerunner...just awesome!! That first shot of the belching techno city is just so dark and realistic
Top Gun !?! Someone'll come up with Cocktail next :wink:
The Wizard of Oz...
Boy that's tough.
Best film of all time? It's an odd toss up between Fellini Satyricon and Hitchcock's Vertigo (both immensely voyeuristic :biggrin1: )
Shit. I don't know. It's an impossible question.
I have to agree Wizard of Oz is great...the others, IMHO, will not be remembered 50 years from now. The great films are those which are timeless and not dated, i.e., the Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, King Kong (the original). The greatest, he says more than a bit sarcastically, is Deep Throat.
Bladerunner not being remembered in fifty years? I beg to disagree...With that timeless Vangelis soundtrack, the ephereal beauty of Sean Young and Darryl Hannah, the best Harrison Ford performance ever and Rutger Haeur stealing the show as the morose android?
It was also the forerunner of modern science fiction films and based on possibly the best book by the legendary sci-fi writer Phillip K Dick.
Unlike my little treasure, this film will stand-up in fifty years even if there's no singing and thigh slapping all the way through :wink:
Surely you wouldn't exclude ROCKY, now, would you?
really anything directed by Ron Howard and/or Brian Grazer are great, but, they most certainly out did themselves on: A Beautiful Mind
the same also applies to Billy Wilder ... Double Indemnity being his greatest - simply for it's dialogue
I just remembered one none of you in your right minds'd exclude;
Any of the STAR WARS MOVIES.
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest-flawless.
a man after my own heart....top gun....is as u say....pure genius..!
the wizard of oz....technicolour.....judy garland.....need i say more....
rocky 1-4....sylvester....eye of the tiger.....B.A. Barachas....sensational
can't argue with any of those!

Uh, actually there royston, in ROCKY III, Mr. T's Character was Clubber Lang.
This is tricky...the more i think the more great films pop up in my head. And it all depends on mood, may be better if we split this into a few categories instead? Or am i just insanely dull?
Strangers on a Train.
Lord of the Rings
Ming...must you ask rhetorical questions??? (joke)
Who's in that, Peckey?
Yes...yes i must - my typing lives in it's own little hut and if i don't let it meander through life as it wishes then i get wild finger spasms and i can't allow that to be on your conscience :wink: Nor can i help putting these ridiculous :biggrin1: :tongue: :wink: faces everywhere
