    I'm wondering what everyones top 5 movies are. Do we all like the same things? I mean you all like Stargate so you obviously have good taste, do our tastes run the same for other things?

    'spose I'd better get the ball rolling:

    1. Bladerunner
    2. Terminator 2
    3. Aliens
    4. The Breakfast Club (see, I don't just watch sci-fi)
    5. Hmmmm, I'll have to think about #5, I've narrowed it down to three. Guess I should have prepared my list before starting this thread.

    Who's next please?

    Um, undoubtedly I'll be hitting myself on the head later for forgetting some crucial favourite, but here goes....

    1. The Rock
    2. Devil's Advocate
    3. The Matrix
    4. The James Bond series as a whole.... my favourite probably being Tomorrow Never Dies (I love Pierce Brosnan!)
    5. Usual Suspects

    ok, I'm sure I'm forgetting lots of great movies that should be up there.... but that's the best I can manage!

    aaah, Shawshank redemption, a fine film, I'd forgotten about that one. Good choice.

    Sky, I've not heard of "the paper", tell me more please

    cheers

    it's a fantastic movie. it's a ron howard film starring michael keaton, marisa tomai, randy quaid, robert duval, and a famous blond actress whose name escapes me.
    anyway it's 24 hours in the lives of the folk at the new york post...action, drama, angst.
    all in all it's really good and was totally overlooked, like shawshank was overlooked, i think jurassic park got so much press that year it just slipped by the way side.
    but if you're in the mood for 2 hrs of good entertainment...the paper is a goody.

    no real sfx or explosions though...:D

    i should add shindler's list to my list...not somehting i'd watch every day or anything, but very good. incredibly intense though. the fact that spielberg won't let his children watch it should tell you something.

    You know, I'm probably going to be blasted for this one, but I've seen DOGMA more than once. There's just so much to it. And it's a scream (but you really have to have a good sense of humor to enjoy it).

    peachy.. they are good choices. I loved MIB it was so so funny if a little short. Notting Hill is another great film if slightly unbelievable :)... Independance day i like despite the "upload your virus to the mothership...." hehe.. but havn't seen as good as it gets.

    American beauty is a brilliant film if you watch it in the right way.. quite a lot of a message in it and gladiator is pretty cool as well.
