    I appreciate the challenge of selecting a top ten.

    Here goes.

    This isnt in concrete order.



    The Taking Of Pelham 123

    The Godfather

    North By Northwest

    The Godfather II

    Pulp Fiction

    Vertigo

    Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas

    The Thirty Nine Steps

    Star Wars

    Duel

    Honourable mention-Casino, This is Spinal Tap and the Hunt For Red October.




    Hope this generates a bit of chatter.


    Duel is an absolute classic. Speilberg has never manipulated the audience in such a way since.

    Buddyrich - an interesting list...I need to watch Vertigo again having found it tedious the other week.

  15. #15

    Default

    Scanning other slists I now realise there are some that could wasily have made my own top ten.....

    Road to Perdition / Pulp Fiction / Taking of Pelham 123/Spinal Tap etc.
    all brilliant movies and so many good films here.

    I just didn't 'get' 'Withnail' though...though I wanted too - bought it. Will have another look perhaps.

    I don't get African films either like 'Last King of Scotland and 'Hotel Rwanda' I have them here but just can't relate to 'em.

    Like Perce I agree that 10 is such a difficult limitation - this list (apart from the top few) changed so often during compliation, and I was gutted to have to leave out some, IMHO, very worthy classics, however here goes...

    Bladerunner
    Shawshank Redemption
    Men of Honour
    Gladiator
    Bourne Trilogy (Yeah I'm cheating too lol!)
    chain Reaction
    Bicentennial Man
    Field of Dreams
    Knight's Tale
    The Associate

    But I also can't resist pretty much any Disney / Pixar kids films too - they're just soooo watchable

    How about a top 10 by genre instead - that might give us enough choice!!!
