    In no particular order except that which I have given in it:

    1/fistful of dollars - you laughing at my mule?
    2/for a few dollars more - I knew they were bounty-hunters from the first time we met.
    3/good the bad and the ugly - Son of thousand fathers and they are all bastards like you!
    4/once upon a time in the west - No, my friend. You brought two too many.
    5/fistful of dynamite - Duck, you sucker!
    6/fight club - you are not your fucking khakis.
    7/brick - Put your body to sleep.
    8/big lebowski - I can get you a toe.
    9/yojimbo - uh...

    This is why I hate lists, I have about 30 more to add... heh.

    The Audition
    Acacia (This is just kind of a place holder... it was good, but I know I've seen better I just can't think of them.)
    Silence of the Lambs
    Day of the Dead
    Dawn of the Dead
    Shaun of the Dead
    The Birds
    The Evil Dead series (I can't choose just one sorry)
    Cannibal Holocaust

    I prefer psychological horror to slasher flicks... and zombie movies are just awesome. I'm also bored with American horror movies, I prefer Japanese ones at this point. I need to see more "classic" American horror though.

    Shaun of the Dead (What... I can't have it in 2 lists?)
    Hot Fuzz
    Monty Python anything (just... all of it)
    A Bit of Fry and Laurie (all the seasons)
    Beerfest (It's silly...)
    Nightmare Before Christmas

    The Hours

    That was easier than I thought it would be...

    I'll have to think about the top ten for all films but for now here's my top ten for anime's.

    1. Berserk
    2. Ninja Scroll
    3. Princess Mononoke
    4. Basilisk
    5. Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
    6. Spirited Away
    7. Samurai X OVA: Trust and Betrayal
    8. Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
    9. Demon City Shinjuku
    10. Akira

    Actually, I don't know about the order but Berserk is definitely my top choice by far.
    • CommentTimeDec 3rd 2007 edited
    mmm Berserk. My top 10 Anime will be edited into this shortly...

    Cowboy Bebop
    Neon Genesis Evangelion (particularly the movie... I like a good mind fuck)
    Saikano (or She, The Ultimate Weapon)
    One Piece (who doesn't love pirates)
    Vampire Hunter D
    Monster (although I've only seen like the first 20-30 eps)
    I'm kind of torn between Death Note, Bleach, and Claymore (I also haven't finished the series) for my last one. Bleach was good, went really far downhill, and is starting to pick up again... Death Note was just good, if way too hyped up, and Claymore shows ridiculous promise). I'll leave my #10 slot open till I finish Claymore I guess...

    1. Requiem for a Dream

    I see some Westerns are making people's Top Tens, mostly Sergio Leone's. Fans of Deadwood should have a look at Warlock, based on the novel by Oakley Hall (which I believe Thomas Pynchon once said was his favourite book), because Deadwood is basically Warlock as a continuing series. Both deal with the violence apparently inherent in the birth of a new city, and the character Henry Fonda played in Warlock is essentially the same one he played in My Name Is Nobody (not to mention being the reason Leone wanted him for Once Upon A Time In The West).


    Warlock (greatest western of all time)
    My Name Is Nobody
    The Good The Bad and The Ugly
    Seven Men From Now (this was part of a string of westerns made by Randolph Scott and Budd Boeticher that are to the western film what the Val Lewton canon is to horror)
    El Topo (so sue me -- it's my list)
    Duck You Sucker
    The Price of Power (the JFK assassination in a western setting)
    The Big Gundown (Lee Van Cleef's best western outside of Leone's films)
    My Darling Clementine (Wow. Henry Fonda is all over this list. I never really thought about it before...)
    Once Upon A Time In The West

    It should of course be stated that on any given day there are twenty films waiting in the wings that COULD be on this list, but today they aren't.

    .BREWSTER MCCLOUD (1970) (This may be my "pet rescue" pick - I wasn't even born when this film came out but I keep introducing it to people who were...)
    .GLORIA! (1979) (part of Hollis Frampton's Magellan Cycle...avant/underground, won't show up on IMDB, but just a heartbreaking ten minutes of movie. Don't pay attention to descriptions you read online, they all focus on the formalist academic side of the film and not the fact that it's the most moving cinematic tribute to a parent that one will ever see.)
    .THE LION IN WINTER (1968)
    .FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS (1998) (Sometimes this is Brazil)
    .RUSHMORE (1998)
    .WAYNE'S WORLD (1992)
    .BATMAN RETURNS (1992) (Often times this is Ed Wood)
    .HIS GIRL FRIDAY (1940) (This is actually a recent discovery...don't know why it took me so long to see this film, but it's utterly magnificent. Sharp, smart, and brutally I have to dig out Front Page, the play it was based on...)
    .DEAD MAN (Sometimes this is every other Jim Jarmusch film.)

    Oh wait, is that 11? Damn.
  9.  (108.15)
    Fight Club
    The Matrix
    I ? Huckabees
    The Big Lebowski
    Inside Man
    Con Air
    The Insider
    The Departed
  10.  (108.16)
    Wow... this is extremely difficult.

    In no particular order:

    Citizen Kane
    Raiders of the Lost Ark
    Evil Dead 2
    Fight Club
    The Untouchables
    Blackhawk Down
    The Nightmare Before Christmas

    That's my list today, anyway.

  11.  (108.17)
    I make no claim to these being the best movies ever, but they're the ones that are perpetually stacked on top of my tv because I watch them the most:

    Master and Commander
    mst3k: The Movie
    Die Hard (the best Christmas movie ever)
    Bend it like Beckham
    Ocean's Eleven
    Hot Fuzz
    Almost Famous
    Guilty Pleasure: The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert

    "The Front Page" is much darker, far more misogynistic and racist than "His Girl Friday". Still very funny, but also understandable why Hawks decided to "soften" the script as much as he did.

    And whatever you do, do NOT view the execreble 1974 Billy Wilder version. I love Lemmon and Matthau (well, pre "Grumpy Old Men"), and Wilder himself for that matter, but this film misses on so many levels, it's actually kind of painful to watch.
    • CommentTimeDec 4th 2007
    In no particular order:

    Near Dark
    The Exorcist
    The Searchers
