This is quite a list. You have very diversified taste. Terms of Endearment and Superbad on the same list it must mean you have a very broad mind- I mean that in a good way.

Is that ten in French?

:)
No. That's ten in urdu.
I was not the first one to go beyond the required number. And I've got a bunch of new titles which have come in my mind after reading the others' lists. Can I add them ? Can I ? :p
I see you quoted a film from Mario Bava. Being fond of giallos but having mainly seen Dario Argento's ones, I one day tried Mario Bava. It was Hatchet for the honeymoon and I would easily put it in my top 10 worst movies. :D

I didn't see Denys Arcand mentioned in other lists. He's Canadian and in my opinion one of the finest directors out there.
I saw Jésus de Montréal last week and it made me feel like viewing your top 3.

I didn't see "Jésus de Montréal" yet, but I'm downloading it now. The three movies listed were the only ones I saw by Denys Arcand and I liked all of them a lot.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou - Wes Anderson
Land and Freedom - Ken Loach

and of course...

Flesh Eating Mothers - James Aviles Martin
(it was a close call between that and Rabid Grannies, or even, Zachariah-the first hippy western!)

This is really more a list of films I love than a definative 'my top 10'. My memory has more holes than the Swiss army and its cheese.

crap, I forgot El Topo!
 
Well, these would be a good start;
Run Lola Run
Apocalypse Now
Chinatown
Godfather I
City of God
The Good,The Bad,And the Ugly
Breathless
The Emerald Forest
Catch 22
The Big Blue

Land and Freedom - Ken Loach

That's a great film! It gives a realistic view of the life of the militia's at the front during the Spanish Civil War. It reminded me a lot of Orwell's book, "Homage To Catalonia". It describes the life at the front in much the same way as the film.

This is true. Though I must admit it becomes quite taxing when you try and read through the complexities of the Spanish Civil War. Why couldn't the lefties just get along ;) I still find it amazing that people like Orwell left their homeland off their own back to face fascism head on. I couldn't imagine people doing that nowadays.

I watched Che Part 1 the other week and I thought that was another example of how to make a film about guerilla warfare realistic.
 
Shameless self promotion Mr Hines!

I threw that film in as a bit of a joke, it's not a film you can say you really love, just a film it's impossible not to react to. I felt something similar when I was taken to a naval hospital with concussion. And the halls were filled with thousands of dead rabbits...
 
In no particular order:

Pee Wee's Big Adventure
The Princess Bride
Highlander
The Gods Must be Crazy
The Life Aquatic
Shawshank Redemption
Napolean Dynamite
Memento
Moty Python and the Holy Grail
Being John Malkovich
This Is Spinal Tap

Mine goes to 11.

Anyone care to give me a diagnosis?

I agree. I guess that's why Orwell wrote about the political complexities of the war in a chapter by itself, and said if you're not interested in the political aspects you can just skip the chapter and carry on with the rest of the book. :D

People still join wars and revolts in other countries nowadays. I think that's what's happening in Iraq and Afghanistan where other nationalities joins the war against the coalition forces. Of course, their agenda is a religious fascist agenda but in principle it's the same as what happened in the Spanish Civil War.

I have'nt seen the Che film. I better have a look at it on Youtube.

Fantastic film, and so much better than M*A*S*H. I can't understand why Catch 22 lost out to M*A*S*H so badly.

I really don't know either. Robert Altman is a good director. Both movies are from books of the same title as their movie counterparts. I think it had something to do with the years that they were released in.
Catch 22 will always be one of my favorite book and movie.

...probably omitting many crucial others, but these random ten came to mind first.

No one cares.
