Hello. I came to this site because i was posting my favourite movies on Letterbox, and wanted to see if there were any I* had forgotten. There were. I have many favourite movies. I must admit I haven't watched any of them in a long times/ That's basically because of the internet, broadband and the chance to watch movies that I want to see. I've gone through the 7 pages of this forum, and decided to list 10 movies which

I haven't seen mentioned. That is except for the first one because if I had to pick just one. it would be

La Confidiental.

So here some of my favourite movies. I don't necessarily think all these are great movies. There are movies i think are great, but are not favourites. eg Citizen Kane.

I will be naming more than 10. Shoot me.

These are in no particular order.

The Face of Fu Manchu

Cannon for Cordoba

Daddy's gone a hunting

Tati (Mr Hulot's holiday, mon oncle, jour da fete)

Marx Brothers. (all the paramount features except probably the Coconauts)

other studios. opera/races/big store/casablanca

A nous La liberte.

Across the great divide

Way out West

Abbot and Costello meet Frankenstein.

The latest addition. was Yellowbeard.

Looking at a lot of the answers in this thread, Im not surprised that so many people cannot narrow this down to just 10 movies. This is such a hard question to answer, but you have to have these arguments within yourself. You cannot say these are the top ten from when I was a kid or its this film OR that film as one choice or these are the top ten films i liked in my 20's etc etc!!!

This is why this question is so great, I also ask people this question of music too. I always say to my friends and colleagues "Can you name your top 20 songs of all time": not your best clubbing tunes, gutted tunes or most memorable music choices - YOUR ALL TIME TOP 20 TUNES!!!!. It creates that debate within yourself, you argue is this one better than that one!!! and what are the reasons that this means so much that I rate it over that. It creates a dilemma within yourself that takes its time but when finalised become so satisfying !!!! Usually I will then create a CD and artwork for them to showcase their selection which cements it even further into their memory.

So come you guys, for all those people that could NOT present only 10 movies, look again, have the internal debate, enjoy the argument within yourself, question the pros and cons of each of your choices and THEN and only THEN put your finallised (as Ross from Friends would no doubt do ... "LAMINATED") selection up for people to view, enjoy, question, debate, agree or disagree. Thats the beauty of this question! (even I had to throw a wild card in there so Im not perfect!!!!!)

1. Jurassic Park

I love nothing more than dinosaurs. I also prefer serious scifi and tension to the ever more ridiculous sequels.

2. Empire Strikes Back

Excellent world building, character building, and the most iconic twist of all time.

3. Big Fish

I find myself borrowing from this funny and sweet story, telling similarly exaggerated tales for amusement.

4. Ghostbusters

As with some other entries here, sequels that fall short of the bar really highlight the greatness of this first entry. It's a bizarre concept, buoyed by comedians at the peak of their powers.

5. Kingdom of Heaven (extended cut)

I'm a sucker for historical epics, most of which aren't really that great. The concepts in the movie lift it up above the admittedly plain acting from some main characters.

6. Inside Out

The movie has something for everyone, from childish flourishes to deeper nods towards psychology. Also, "it's ok to be sad sometimes" is a lesson for audience of all ages.

7. Toy Story 3

It hit pretty hard, as I was just aging out of the toys zone at the time.

8. Space Jam

MJ and Bugs. I still unironically love the soundtrack as well. I also love it fits into the "lore" of why MJ came back.

9. 12 Angry Men

Got to this old movie only recently. Confined to one room, basically relying on nothing but writing and acting.

10. The Nightmare Before Christmas

I love rhyming. Love the looks. Also enjoyed it's a dig at Christmas prep extending way too far ahead in the calendar.

@francium34: 12 Angry Men is an excellent classic.

If you’re into the whole “just get by on pure acting” thing, Locke is a recent film that does a great job of turning Tom Hardy in a car into a compelling film.

Okay so I have decided not to actually read this topic so I could formulate my own list and see how it compares... this is in no particular order.

La La Land - I have seen this movie probably 10 times since it has come out. My first solo mushroom trip I watched this movie. I absolutely adore this film. To let you know how much I love this film... I actually had the soundtrack playing before I even noticed this topic. What completely sold me on the movie... I can remember... it was an article by some movie website wherein Tom Hanks gushed about the movie at Cannes or Sundance. Then I saw a trailer and learned that Ryan Gosling is actually playing the piano in this movie and there is no double... and then I found out that the iconic scene where in he plays the main song he nailed on the first take. It was just amazing.

The Big Lebowski- I am aware how cliche this choice is but I just absolutely love the banter in this film... anything in this film that isn't expository dialogue or progressing the plot is absolutely genius. It is one of the few movies I can recite every line to.

Brazil - I got into this film because I had just seen the Usual Suspects and wanted a movie with a twist ending. I asked a question on a random forum and this was the biggest suggestion. Not only did this movie deliver a twist ending but it did so in the most terrifying way I could ever imagine. I am a hardcore lucid dreamer and this movie toys with dreams as one of the main themes of the film... so it resonated with me on a deeply personal level. But what is absolutely amazing about this film is the world it is set in. It is this weird dystopian future like world that feels absolutely alive. And while the movie came out in the 80's some concepts are incredibly relevant today.... but I won't spoil it.

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen- I absolutely adored Brazil... which I had pirated. In Netflix I typed in the director of Brazil, Terry Gilliam, and they had this odd film. The most surreal thing about this film, for me, is I saw it the first time with a friend the day before Robin Williams dies. I remember when watching it with my friend we were both taken by surprise that not only is Robin Williams in this film but he plays an over the top God very similar to his role as Genie in Aladdin.

My absolutely favorite part of this film is one particular line. There is this one scene in the film where it gets incredibly abstract... I remember hearing my friend sigh under his breath and then Baron Munchausen says "This is PRECISELY the type of thing nobody believes." And just the timing of it... my friend and I lost our selves laughing. I have gone on to watch it many times since and I actually use a still from this film as my cover photo on social media... the scene where Venus is introduced.... and she's standing on a giant clam with the angles flying out of frame whilst dropping banners... I got chills. Then it slowly pans up to this nude woman with long hair who was just absolutely beautiful. I was taken aback by how great she looked. It was Uma Thurman. I knew she was in the film because of the opening credits but I had figured she was the little girl who is the main character... but I was wrong in the most spectacular way. She plays the God venus and is introduced in the nude. She was 17 when the movie was shot so it isn't completely creepy. I wish I could describe how I felt at that particular scene.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail - I was late to this movie. As I type this I am 31, going on 32 and I 'discovered' the Monty Python films at 27. In fact I watched this film with my friend who also was green to the film. I knew about this film growing up but I sort of stayed away because I used to be a hipster douche that hated things popular and once I got out of high school it became incredibly easy to ignore this film. But Brazil had sold me on Gilliam.

That bit at the beginning with the swallow was perhaps the funniest bit I have ever seen but the hardest I laughed was at this one particular line that was just perfect: "Who are you who are so wise in the ways of science?" which was delivered perfectly after a scene illustrating the silliness of formal logic as outlined by the Greek's. This movie was perfect and it was so awesome to final understand the significance of the Holy Hand Grenade from Worms.

Toy Story 3 - one and two were fine films but 3 absolutely destroyed me emotionally. I was not expecting that ending. I cannot think of an IP out there that ended better than Toy Story... what an absolute joy of a film.

Schindler's List - Another movie that absolutely destroyed me. Ralph Fiennes performance in this film is absolutely chilling. I cannot think of a single movie character that has ever scared me as much as this character and I am including horror films.

Hot Rod - I just love this absolutely silly movie. Just how stupid it is... it feels like they go over the top with stupidity and I love it. The scene where he falls off his bike off a hillside and just keeps falling for like three straight minutes was one of the funniest things I ever seen.

The Other Guys- I feel like this movie gets forgotten about when people speak of what is the best Will Ferrell film and I find that a sin. There are so many funny scenes in this film and the chemistry Wahlberg and Ferrell have works from the hop. Whenever someone in my party of friends inadvertently fires off a shot in a survival game we refer to it as a desk pop... we will say 'aim for the bushes' whenever we storm a place we shouldn't be storming... every squad we run across in PUBG is Dirty Mike and the Boys... this movie. I love it.

Shit... that is 9.

I can't think of another so for my 10th I will just mention a movie everyone seems to love but I absolutely hate.

Fuck Blade Runner
