    Best movies ever

    I was really bored, so I formulated my list of the top 10... share yours as well if you like:
    10. Gladiator
    9. Matrix
    8. The Butterfly Effect
    7. Memento
    6. 12 Monkeys
    5. Lord of the Rings Trilogy [1]
    4. Fight Club
    3. The Last Samurai
    2. Life as a House [2]
    1. Boondock Saints [3]

    [1]Note: I didn't find any of the individual LOTR movies top-10 worthy, but as a trilogy they hold their own.
    [2]Note: Because it is the only movie (withholding bambi when i was 4) to bring me to tears.
    [3]Note: If you haven't seen this yet, do it. Its simply amazing. <stereotype>The main characters our Irish, so its pretty much a constent swear-fest</stereotype>, but other than that it is hands down the best movie I've ever seen.

    I'd imagine nobody cares, but it seemed like a good idea as I started typing it...

    The matrix was cool until the second two came out and screwed it up... like killing a good joke.

    1. Braindead
    2. Bad Taste
    3. Meet the Feebles.

    All of them are bloody unreal!

    They are Peter Jacksons three cult movies before he made LOTR.

    I pretty much hated everything else... I havent seen a really good movie in years. I only like documentaries.

    Oh yer, Waynes World was great! Only because of Garths wicked drum solo. \m/ He has a different heavy metal shirt on every day! Its so good.

    Regards.

    I have Ninja Turtles and Transformers the Movie (original) on VHS. I got offer $100 for each. No way i would sell them.

    In 'Jay and Silent Bob strike back', Jay wears a 'The Berserker' shirt the whole movie. The Berserker are a death metal band from Melbourne, Australia whom i have met a few times!

    Regards.

    Nerds are cool these days. Traditional nerds died out in the eighties.

    well, sam, you had some good movies on your list, as did many other people, but you neglected movies that are less than 5 years old. blazing saddles, airplane!, anything by monty python, all are priceless.

    Ohh yes forgot about Monty Pythons Life of Brian now thats a classic so is animal house. I prefer older movies i think they sometimes over do films these days and there are less good actors at present becuase all they care about is how the look and dont feel they are acting professional above. Not all actors though.

    Big Night
    Pink Floyd's The Wall (turned up really, really loud)
    City Slickers
    The Sixth Sense
    An American Werewolf in London
    American Psycho
    American Graffiti
    Young Frankenstein (almost anything from Mel Brooks)
    Monty Python's Holy Grail
    The Abyss

    I wouldn't say these are definately my final choices, but all are worth considering.

    Also,
    Ben Hurr
    Planet of the Apes (it was revolutionary in its day)
    Close Encounters
    2001 A Space Oddessy
    Throw Mama from the Train
    Silver Streak (Gene Wilder & Richard Pryor)
    Deerhunter
    Cape Fear (the original)


    It would be easier to pick a top 10 for various categories.
