Cleo - Two movies YOU must see are Homeward Bound and Look Who's Talking 3. Trust me on this.

My 10 favorites? Difficult question... most likely Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey would make the list, as would Coming to America and Starship Troopers and Starship Troopers 2. Just kidding about the last two ha ha ha

Sarge - I've got Homeward Bound, it's up there in the 'anything with dogs' section, together with Benji, Beethoven, K9, etc etc etc. Don't know Look Who's Talking 3 - thought that series was babies? Have to go and have a look in the video shop. Thanks.

I forgot the Great Escape, Rainman, Magnificent Seven, Seven Samurai, The King and I, Indie Jones and the Whatever, and the one with Harrison Ford as a high-flying lawyer who loses his memory and turns honest.

Ahh what the hell, I need a break from work so it's worth consideration.

In no particular order.

Lord of the Rings (The whole trilogy - I count it as one long movie. I'm amazed they turned such a complex book into a coherent visual masterpiece) Star Wars (A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back - ahh the memories of childhood) The Godfather (Parts 1 and 2 - hey, I'm a guy, enough said) Schindlers List (Not something I want to watch very often, but probably the most important movie ever made) Platoon (I actually think Stone's "Salvador" is much rawer and provocative, but I give it to Platoon for Willem Dafoe and Tom Berenger) Lawrence of Arabia (for somehow keeping you interested for 4 hours) There's something about Mary (for breaking all the rules) The Departed. (I wanted to include something recent, and this is the best one I have seen lately). Dances with Wolves (from an era when it was cool to be a Kevin Costner fan) Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind (my favourite Miyazaki anime.)
0 ( +0 / -0 )

No particular order for the first 9....Here goes;

Star Wars Blazing Saddles Saving Private Ryan Das Boot Terminator Aliens Rat Race Dr. Strangelove Sento Chihiro no Kamikakuchi (Spirited Away) I'm with F/C and this one.

Number 1 Jeremiah Johnson, with Robert Redford the story and the scenery makes it all worthwhile, highly recommended if you never seen or heard of it.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Here goes my list, no particular order though

Midnight Run Narrow Margin Hombre Platoon Die Hard JFK Rocky The Siberiad(Russian) Farewell my concubine(Chinese) Bubbling Springs(Chinese, saw it as a kid but still remember it)

0 ( +0 / -0 )

forgot Deer Hunter

0 ( +0 / -0 )

"TGerminator" "Aliens"

What about Terminator 2? That was even better than the original. Agree Aliens was better than than the original Alien.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Das Boot - great film. The first 20 minutes of Saving Private Ryan (not the rest) would rate very highly too

0 ( +0 / -0 )

No "Princess Bride"? Don Diego de Montoya must be turning in his father's grave.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Front

The first 20 minutes of Saving Private Ryan (not the rest) would rate very highly too

I have to disagree, The last twenty minutes when he asked his wife 'Te'll me I was good man'.....That got to me on a level that I never thought a movie could. Glad though you can relate to the movie and why I consider in my top ten.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Network, Ice Pirates, Bonnie and Clyde, Hopscotch, Wise Blood, The Long Goodbye, 'Breaker' Morant, The Great Waldo Pepper, The Grifters, Romeo is Bleeding

0 ( +0 / -0 )

By "all time" I'm assuming future movies count. In which case:

Rocky XXII: Rocky vs. Clone of Rocky

The Janglish Patient (Japanese remake of Ralph Fiennes film, w/ speech aphasic)

Doc Bollywood (Just look at that Michael J. Fox dance!)

Waterworld (post-global-warming remake of Costner film as documentary)

My Big Fat Reanimated Gay Greek Wedding (remake as horror romance w/ digitally rendered Heath Ledger)

There's Something About Mari (Japanese Ben Stiller remake)

The Magnificent Mild Seven Samurai (starring Beckie and funded by Japan Tobacco and Phillip Morris; courageous samurai defend civil liberties, including smoking)

An Officer and a Gentleman: Military re-remake of My Big Fat Reanimated Gay Greek Wedding

Star Trek XXI: The Search for Spork

Sen to Chihiro no Kagamikakushi: Documentary on putting on makeup on the subway

6 x Star Wars, 3 x Indiana Jones and Resident Evil Extinction.

There is no way I could ever make a generalized list like this so I broke it down into categories. Here are my opinions: Best sci-fi movie: Bladerunner Best western: Tombstone Honorable mention: The Outlaw Josie Wales, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid Best feel good drama: The Shawshank Redemption Best crime movie: The Godfather Best Comedy: Stripes Honorable mention: Ghostbusters (Bill Murray and Harold Ramis are an unparalleled comedy duo) Best dialog in a movie: Pulp Fiction Best animated movie: Ralph Bakshi’s Wizards Best sports movie: (tie) Bull Durham and Field of Dreams (Kevin Costner should only be allowed to make baseball movies) Honorable mention: Rudy Best political movie: All the President’s Men Best horror movie: Psycho Best war movie: (tie) The Battle of Midway and Platoon
