Recommended Posts

So here's my list.

As I said, it got to 200, so hopefully the ones that people see as being omitted were in the 100 to 200 section.

I didn't bother breaking up the sequel movies so Star Wars becomes Star Wars (s)

It was a fair job getting the list together.

I own all the movies I like, so I scanned through my collection and plucked out the best ones
I need to watch Ford Fairlane again. Tried to get the kids in to it a few times but they just don't seem to get it :(

This'd be impossible to do. Wide range of films there.

 

I think Donnie Darko is probably still my favourite movie. 'Revolutionary Road,' 'The Box,' and something like 'Into the Blue' would probably be part of my top 5. I wouldn't be surprised if my whole top 50 wouldn't even be in your list!

 

I thought this'd be a hell of a task, but you have me kind of interested now. It'd be cool to do. Biggest issue is I haven't seen more than a dozen movies over the past four years. ;)

Shawshank Redemption, Back To The Future and The Princess Bride are probably my top 3.

Gladiator

True Lies

Bourne series

Lethal Weapon

The Raid 1 & 2

Yes, John Wick is pretty damn killer (pun). I love revenge movies, and John Wick is cold revenge in a very cool way.

 

Never saw The Raid. Will have to check it out.

 

Edge Of Tomorrow 2 is said to be in the works

Top Gun 2 just got the green light.

 

I hated Donnie Darko. Same with another 'cult' movie Fargo

 

Many of the Arnie movies were/are cool, but seem a bit lollypoppy now. True Lies is one of the best. Also like Running Man etc

Okay, I gave this a go. Looked through all my DVDs and picked my faves and tried to put them in some order. I look through the list and know if I re-did it, most of it would be a different order, so don't read too much into the numbers. It's such a hard thing to do, ranking a comedy alongside a horror movie etc. It's tricky, so just take this as a rough order. Oh, and 100 was too many. ;)

3 . Revolutionary Road
4 . Frailty
5 . Rock Star

10 . Ace Ventura Pet Detective (1 & 2)
11 . The Box
12 . Blood Diamond
13 . Next
14 . Seven Pounds
15 . Requiem For A Dream
16 . Memento
17 . I Know What You Did Last Summer (1 & 2)
18 . Naked Gun (and sequels)
19 . Shutter Island
20 . Into The Blue
21 . Vacancy
22 . Inception
23 . Wonderland
24 . Point Break
25 . The Sixth Sense
26 . Gone Baby Gone

The Raid is phenomenal. Indonesian martial arts action flick. Have you seen the new Dredd? That was pretty much a ripoff of The Raid.

Oooh i might do mine too. Surprised Cape Fear isn't on anyone's list -i loved the original and the remake of that.

Zodiac was pretty good and the Mothman - i think that's what it was called. (Was based on the story of this giant moth like creature that appeared to people just before major disasters). I'd need to resee them tho to see if i'd class them as favorites.

 

I'm a big fan of classic movies+film noir too

I don't know if I could even pick 50. The problem is I often only watch a film once. Even if I love it. So it would be difficult to judge how much I loved one film over the other.

 

To be honest, I selfishly asked Cure to post his list just to see if there were a few I need to watch. And to be even more honest, I'm a bit disappointed. Most I've seen. ;}

I liked Dredd.
Also liked the Stallone version a few years back.

 

My daughter is pissed that Cape Fear didn't make the cut. Same with Shutter Island

Dredd was awesome! I wish it had done well. A sequel is needed.

 

But The Raid is so much better.

The Raid >>> 4 light years >>> Dredd

 

The Raid is pure brutality.

:) She thinks so...

 

FWIW, some movies off my list that aren't all that well known, but I obviously think are worth a look are

 

The Salton Sea - Val Kilmer in a movie with a few twists and turns

Nick Of Time - Johnny Depp plays a businessman who must obey his daughters captors to ensure she survived

They Live - Rowdy Roddy Piper isn't a great actor, but the premise of this movie is. About aliens infiltrating earth.

Less Than Zero - Robert Downey Jr is the movie that has Poisons version of Kiss's RNR All Nite. About how drugs screw up youth etc

Runner Runner - Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck about drug running and getting caught up in that world.

Everly - Salma Hyeck gets caught up with the Russian mob and has to kick some ass to get out alive
