    What are your top 25 movies of all time?

    What would you consider to be your top 25 greatest movies of all time? Also, it does not have to be your favorite of a series, because being a favorite does not always mean it is better. For example, my favorite Tarantino movie is Inglorious Basterds, but I think Pulp Fiction is his masterpiece, and as such, I have that listed in my top 25 rather than IG. Does that make sense?

    A Clockwork Orange
    The Dark Knight
    The Empire Strikes Back
    From Russia with Love
    Shawshank Redemption
    Raiders of the Lost Ark
    The Two Towers
    Psycho
    Lawrence of Arabia
    Pulp Fiction
    Godzilla (1954)
    King Kong (33)
    Bram Stoker's Dracula
    Scarface
    Amadeus
    The Matrix
    The Lion King
    Jaws
    Blade Runner
    Alien
    The Maltese Falcon
    Inception
    The Shining
    Nightmare Before Christmas
    The Thing
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.
