Always a question I like to ask people....

The irony is I never keep a defacto top 5 in my head as it kinda depends on what mood you are in the time you compile it (well it is for me anyway).

At the moment of writing this, it is:

1) Leon
2) The Usual Suspects
3) Raiders of the Lost Ark
4) The Fellowship of the Ring
5) Starwars
6) Scent Of A Woman


Couldn't keep it to 5....

Call me Bob or Snootchies, I don't mind. If you are wondering about my account name, watch the film Mallrats.

I can't have a top 5, there's too many to choose from. So here's a mix of films I have seen recently and loved and some I saw ages ago and popped into my head just now and would like to see again.

1. Dead Mans Shoes
2. Step Brothers
3. Dumb and Dumber
4. 50/50
5. The Sixth Sense.

A lot of comedy's must need cheering up. :shrug:

I find it hard to think of films. Seen so many.

1 - Total Recall (original version)
2 - The Running Man
3 - Shaun of the Dead
4 - Nightmare on Elm Street (3)
5 - Despicable Me

Changes all the time, but at the moment

1) would be Night Of The Hunter. 2) Richardson's Charge Of The Light Brigade

Is it me or is there a theme there....

To be fair, I'm a big Python fan myself.

Looking at what people have said there are a few I'm unfamiliar with (shame on me). I'll have to educate myself...

You get the idea.


Now THAT is a film.

Ipcress is excellent, but Billion Dollar Brain pips it for me, just for the final scene (Palmer being the only one left alive).

I've never got to see all of District 9 in one sitting, but the first hour was rather good.

I've got no chance of narrowing down to five, but would have to include Quatermass and the Pit (colour), Gattaca, Falling Down, The Arrival, or Ghost In the Shell as contenders.

Then contemplate, A Matter of Life and Death, Toy Story, Young Frankenstein or Robocop


As above, five is impossible as moods change. (Check out The Cell for the premise and effects, which are - imo - unsurpassed)

Like CH... five is impossible but agree that 'Falling down' is one of them.

Beverly hills cop
Christine
Highlander (the original)
Duel
Convoy
Flashback
Terminator 1 & 2 (3 was shite!)
Die Hard's
Last boy scout
Seven
Independence Day (Load of shit but thoroughly enjoyable load of shit)
Kellys Heroes
Dirty harry Magnum force
National Lampoons Animal house
Blues Brothers
Ghostbusters
Groundhog day

More than 5 there but all good.

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!
