Movies - Top 10 of all time

First Post on this forum, from nottingham England :

Greatest film ever has got to be withnail and i especially if you try and keep up with the on screen drinking.

It's meant to be lethal, isn't it? I.e. even if you skip the lighter fluid.
I went to university at Loughborough by the way. I used to enjoy many a night out in Nottingham. Give my regards to the sheriff ;)
 
In no particular order
Diner
Manhunter
Valley Girls-for the soundtrack and for the memories
Dreams Kurasawa
Kelly Hero's
Magnificent Seven
Runaway Train
Dirty Dozen
The Great Escape
Blue Velvet
Cracked Actor I wrote the screen play but it never went anywhere-excpet on to my 3.5 floppy-but it freaking rocks I'm just misunderstood and before my time and-well you know how it goes... but its the only film that has sub titles for sign language puns.
 
I rarely go on a computer so if somebody has mentioned this film already just delete the goddamn post. It's called Ikiru, a Japanese film made in 1952. Damn good film.

By the suggestion of the CEO of Buk.net
What are your favorite movies of all time. This is harder than it looks. It will tell volumes about you.

In a disorderly list

Sleepers
Kes
Gladiator
The Departed
Jaws
Once upon a time in America
United 93
Apocalypse Now
Moonstruck
Mildred Pierce
 
If you like 'The Departed' you should check out the original Hong Kong film 'Infernal Affairs'. It's the first part of a trilogy and they're all excellent.

Hi, yes I'm undecided about watching the original, I love The Departed, it was a good body of work, a great cast, with no ego's coming through to dominate the film, and there were some pretty big ego's in the room, all at the same time.It's a film I can watch again and again and still love it, a bit like the fantastic Genngarry Glen Ross which has a similar strong cast. But ok yes I should watch the original.

Think I'm answering myself here, anyhoo, this is a great film, very intense, sweaty and claustrophobic, (if it were a band it would be The Cure)

 
I love that film. By the way, whereabouts are you from? It's just the use of "anyhoo" made me think you might be from my neck of the woods (Newcastle) or Scotland maybe (unless it's a typo ;) ).
 

Skygazer

And in the end...
Yes, I'm from Scotland,the cold, damp north, full of tribal barbarians, (or so we like to think of ourselves). Yes it's a great film, difficult keeping it out of the Top 10. When I ask (plead) with people to watch it, they look as if I've just asked them to watch the sequel to Brigadoon.

And in the end...
Nobody up here in the frozen north got it either when I explained what the film wasn't. My sorry attempt at humour.:)
Here's a little unrelated humour that I like.

Help! this is one of my favourite films, but every time I watch it I get distracted at this scene by the song in the background, I think I know it, I don't know for sure, does anyone recognise it?
