Before I start - this is my favorite movie (short): Vive La France (2009) - as my daughter (the little girl) is in it: http://vimeo.com/11197354

I don't think I can think of 10. My age and perhaps because I change my mind all the time. Currently... (got a bit of a Tarantino thing going on at the moment)

  1. Pulp Fiction
  2. Django! (new cowboy)
  3. The Halfway House (oldie ghost story)
  4. Silent Running (great SciFi with Bruce Dern)
  5. The Great Escape (classic PoW)
  6. An Honourable Murder (Boardroom version of Julius Caesar)
  7. Stalag 17 (another classic PoW)
  8. Old Boy (horrible Korean movie)
  9. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series of films (originals not the dog-awful Hollywood waste of time)
  10. Los Cronocrímenes

That was hard :(

@TheDude: How is it possible that with the name you bear you didn't name "The Big Lebowski" in your list?

4) The Toy - 1982

It's one of the least terrible Hollywood remake, but the original French version is still much better.

9) The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series of films (originals not the dog-aweful Hollywood waste of time)

They did do a pretty good job with those movies (especially Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander), but if you like the series you really need to read the books (if you haven't already), there are so many more dimensions to the story in the books than what they could transpose to the movies. And yeah, I agree, the Hollywood version was, again, a complete betrayal of the original material.

Ok, now for my own top 10, I can't rank them in a particular order, and I'm sure I'm leaving out some, cause it's really hard to narrow it down like that. Here goes nothing...

  1. Three Amigos (1986, ... don't ask why)
  2. A Fistful of Dynamite (1971, Sergio Leone, Western)
  3. Du Levande ("You, the Living", 2007)
  4. Scent of a Woman (1992)
  5. The Great Escape (1963)
  6. V for Vendetta (2005)
  7. A Clockwork Orange (1971)
  8. The Shawshank Redemption (1994, no top 10 can be without it)
  9. The Big Lebowski (1998)
  10. The Godfather, Part II (1974, again, not very original, but eh)

Honorable mentions: Fargo, Apocalypse Now!, Scarface, Goodfellas, Le Diner de Cons, In Bruges, Donnie Darko, Gran Torino, Silence of the Lambs, ...
