I'd like to hear what everyone's top 5 favorite movies are.
1. The Royal Tenenbaums
2. Punch Drunk Love
4. Donnie Darko

Boy, it's hard to do that. Maybe it can be your top 10 too. If it was a top 10, mine would be...
6. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
7. Moulin Rouge
10. The Ring
My List changes a lot... So expect edits.
Anyway, let's see em!
Oh! You don't really need to put them in any particular order.

No, I have just seen the Film by Fritz Lang.
I must admit though that I'm not really a fan of animes.

Can't really do a top 10, but films that generally end up in my 'favourites' list:
Apocalyse Now (NOT
the Redux version!!!!)
Rules of Attraction
Lord of the Rings
Transformers: The Movie
They're the first ones that sprang to mind tonight...ask me tomorrow and I'll give you a different set.
Haven't even touched on all the cool film noirs and old films I like...

unclepain, you wouldn't include Close Encounters as Sci-Fi? I think it's more sci-fi than drama.
I can't even begin to make a list of my top movies, but I love comedies. Oh, and Aculag, I see you like Wes Anderson movies. One of my best friends was in Rushmore.

Was your best friend an extra in it? Or did he have an actual role?
I can't wait for his next movie. The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. His films just keep getting better, so I have a very good feeling about it.

And while I'm at it, I'm adding About Schmidt and The Man Who Wasn't There. Time to Edit!

He was just an extra. You know the kid in the pool with Bill Murray? That was him. He originally had a much bigger part, but a lot of his scenes were cut. There were one where he and Bill Murray were walking on opposite sides of this glass wall making faces at each other. Stuff like that.

Sidewinder... I actually thought Monsters Inc was the worst of all the 3D films (Toy Story 1 + 2, A Bugs Life, Ants, Shrek, Ice Age, Final Fantasy) I've seen yet. Didn't really like it much.
Hope finding Nemo is better again, it certainly looks cool...!

yeah, i agree with you there solthar! the animation on monsters ink is crappy especially on toy story, i did not like them at all!

The Animation was fine! On all of them. But I just thought Monsters Inc wasn't as funny as the others and the story was too simple for me.

what i meant in agreeing with you was agreeing that i do not like them!

Ah, I see...
Them? I just don't like Monsters Inc (Well, "don't like it" is too much. I thought it was avergae, but simply by far weaker than all the others).
All other 3D Films I thought were fantastic!

Help I am a fish? Hmm... Never heard of it...
Leelo and Stitch was cool. But not as cool as the emperors new groove... I laughed my head off there...

This has gotten off topic but I just have to say that Ice Age is NOT better than Monsters Inc! I found the premise behind Monsters to be incredibly fun and fresh. Ice Age, although not bad, was not nearly as interesting. Plus Ray Romano was a terrible choice for the Mammoth (although Denis Leary was great as Diego).

Midnightjester - That's way cool, man. And if you really look at it, that's not a small role at all. Only a little screen time, but really, he's fairly important. That's really cool though.

Ya, i think he could have been in Royal Tenenbaums, but didn't for some reason that I can't remember right now.

Putting them in order is real tricky. But with me it's
"The Killer" beautiful romantic action film. Starring favourite actor Chow Yun-Fat and by Woo.
"Hard Boiled" Not as good as "The Killer" but still excellent. More Chow and Woo.
"Bullet in the Head" One of the most emotionally engaging films I've ever seen. More Woo.
"The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" Classic
"Grosse Pointe Blank" One of the few romantic action comedies to come out of the U.S. succeeds on all of the above levels
"Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" yet another beautiful romantic action film with Chow.
"The Big Sleep" Hilarious and confusing.
"The Big Lebowski" Hilarious
"Monty Python and the Holy Grail" Hilarious and then some.
"Equilibrium" Proof that hollywood can actually make an action film.
"Gen X Cops" Sheer cool, slick action.
"A Better Tomorrow 1, 2 and 3" Classics. More Chow. First 2 by Woo last by Tsui Hark. The most influential action films ever made.
"Chungking Express" Excellent cinematography in 2 short films about unrequited love.
That's in no particular order.
There's more but I can't think of 'em right now.
