    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.

    Some really interesting choices on here.

    I actually had Legend in my list until I realized I forgot to list Alien.

    There are other movies in those lists I love, but would probably be closer to my top 50 than 25, but 50 would be way too much.
    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.

    I own most of these on Blu-Ray and the ones i don't i'll end up buying eventually. I could easily watch any of these and do so when i get the chance. Especially on a Friday or Saturday night. Although i admit that my fave films do change from time to time. Could easily do a Top 50!

    In no particular order...

    01). Rambo: First Blood
    02). Seven Samurai
    03). The Fugitive
    04). 12 Angry Men (kinda prefer the '97 version ~ Jack Lemmon/George C. Scott = awesome)
    05). Heat
    06). Casino
    07). The Party
    08). The Negotiator
    09). JFK
    10). Transformers ('07)
    11). Pumping Iron
    12). The Usual Suspects
    13). Leon: The Professional
    14). The Avengers
    15). Donnie Brasco
    16). Beverly Hills Cop
    17). Undisputed II
    18). LOTR: Return of the King
    19). L.A. Confidential
    20). Commando
    21). The Day the Earth Stood Still ('51)
    22). Point Break
    23). The Longest Yard ('05)
    24). Saving Private Ryan
    25). Independence Day
    Most Wanted MOTU Classics:

    I forgot Back to the Future, RoboCop, Top Gun, and Sin City. This is probably impossible to do in 25. I didn't even get Predator on there. Damn.
