What are your top five?
The Wizard of Oz - Not because I'm gay but because it's FUCKING AWESOME!!!
Grease 2 - You read it right. The sequel to Grease. Why? Cause it's so bad it's FUCKING AWESOME!!!
B.A.P.S. - This movie shows Halle Berry actually has comedy chops.
Steel Magnolias - Okay, maybe this one is because I'm gay. Still, FUCKING AWESOME!!!
UHF - Doesn't matter what your sexual orientation, this movie is - you guessed it - FUCKING AWESOME!!!
Runners Up: Star Trek (the reboot), Star Wars (Episodes 4, 5 and 6), and Tim Burton's Batman.
1. A Bronx Tale
2. Saw (The first one)
3. Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (Gene Wilder is a genius)
4. The Devil Wears Prada
Recent nods go to "Coraline", "Gospel Hill" and "The Oxford Murders".
Honorable mention to "13 Tzameti". AWESOME Suspense/Thriller.
Classic Film Enthusiast here...
Gone With The Wind - it's a masterpiece, plain and simple
All About Eve - witty, sharp, brilliant, and Bette Davis
Casablanca - classic wartime drama, great stars
The Women - dated but fun bitchfest with great stars and witty dialogue
A Star is Born (1954) - Judy Garland. Should have won the Oscar

#1 Lord of the Rings
#2 Indiana Jones
#3 Fried Green Tomatoes (the book was better, but still a great movie)
#4 American Beauty
#5 Dazed and Confused
1) Shawshank Redemption
2) The Dark Knight
3) Toy Story (all 3)
4) Naked Gun
5) Pulp Fiction
A Touch of Evil
Planet of the Vampires
In no particular order.
A. High Fidelity
B. Less Than Zero
C. Blade Runner
E. Evil Dead 2
I have removed numbers to circumvent the illusion that there may be an order
Off the top of my head and in no order...
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure
Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
I've never seen the movie, but I've got the soundtrack. Awesome album (as is the soundtrack to Buio Omega, done by the same band).
Didn't think I'd see this in the thread. Cool.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Mysterious Skin(this movie is so f'd up though)
Boys Don't Cry(I did)
and a long list of movies that could be put in as number 5. My list changes day to day.
The most recent movie I liked was Unthinkable(really intriguing) and From Paris with Love.
Hmmm....lemme think of the first 5 that come to mind for such a list and in no order:
Dead Poet's Society
Silence of the Lambs
Into the Wild
The Deer Hunter
Lonesome Dove (miniseries or tv packaged film series or whatever it was)
I'd prolly rotate some others in, especially some war and/or Chinese and/or Westerns in there...and I need some comedy in there....
5 a bit more obscure but worthwhile ones that come to mind
Farewell my Concubine
The Straight Story
A Man for All Seasons,
The Seventh Seal,
awesome lists everyone!!!
Not sure about top 5, but my favourite movie is Silence of the Lambs. By far.
The rest could be:
* Sen to Chihiro (Spirited Away is the US name, I think)
* Blair Witch Project.
* Esperando la Carroza (argentinian black comedy)
Then, I love the work of directors like Kubrik (fav: The Shinning), Tarantino (fav: Pulp Fiction), and Burton (confused here, Big Fish is a great movie, but the Burton always shines with Johnny Depp)
let me add Twister to my list me being a future meteorologist I have a huge love for weather-ish type movies.
In no real order:
To Kill A Mockingbird
the nightmare before christmas
Gone with the Wind -epic
Deloris Claybourn (I know I fucked up the spelling) -incredible acting
Gypsy with Ros Russell
Big Eden- Gay love story I watch once a year.
The Women (original one) All the gals are great. Norma is doing realism beyond her time
