    My top 5:
    The Prestige- Vivid period styling, great cast (David Bowie as Nikola Tesla in particular), and the 'NO WAY HOW DID I NOT FIGURE THAT OUT' ending.
    The Dark Knight- Heath Ledger's performance as the Joker is Oscar-worthy, especially the 'why so serious' monologue. The visuals are stunning and it's just so wonderfully dark.
    Inception- How Nolan managed to get Hollywood to invest in something this clever and complex when Transformers and the Twilight saga make so much money is beyond me. Cleverest film of the last decade.
    Pirates of the Caribbean- Curse of the Black Pearl- Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow is a great character, and the original POTC is by far the best. Brilliant dialogue, and from before Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner got really, really annoying.
    Moon- An independent film which proves that you don't need a huge budget to make a great film, so long as you have a good idea.

    Not seen The Prestige, I agree that The Dark Knight is an amazing film, im not a fan of the old batman films with Geroge Clooney & Val Kilmer but this one is amazing, i cannot wait for The Dark Knight Rises. I have not seen Inception but i do have it downloaded, its to confusing by the looks of it for me but i personally like Twilight & Transformers, I like all the Pirates Of The Caribbeans Films but i think On Stranger Tides is the best, Jack Sparrow is the life blood of the film franchise i just do not Orlando Bloom & Kiera Knightly, as good as all the films are i just dont like them

    Ed Wood - Love the constant positive attitude!
    Alien - A truly atmospheric movie with a truly menacing creature!
    Carnival of Souls - Another atmospheric movie, Herk Harvey's one and only masterpiece.
    Wolf Creek - Just as a reminder of how disgusting man can be!
    Airplane - Because I see new things in it each time I see it!
    Die Hard - Just because Bruce Willis keeps going!
    Final Destiny - Because I like the idea of the order of death!
    Terminator - Because the machine is so relentless!
    Shawshank Redemtion - Just to see the realisation on the governors face!
    Cabaret - Love Fosseys choreography.

    I am a big fan of Tim Burton, I like the way he makes films. He has a very distinct and original style that I really like, some of my favourites are Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride. I like these stop motion films they are wonderfully done it is a really clever way of story telling, and these two films are just brilliant. Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory are also very good too!! I like Danny Elfmans soundtracks they have a unique style to,

    I also like Ridley Scott, he makes really epic films. Gladiator Kingdom of Heaven & Legend Robin Hood are among my favourites visually stunning films.

    Rare Exports A Christmas Tale by Finnish Director Jalmari Helander is a film I would like to see it looks very funny

    Troll Hunter by Andrč Řvredal is a great film and very well made too it looks really believable in how they made the film.

    You Tube has a recording of 'One of My Wives is Missing' starring the late Jack Klugman of Quincy fame. Best thriller I've ever seen. Good old fashioned entertainment and some jaw opening twists throughout. Watch it to the end and you wont be disappointed. A film in a million!
