IMP, your list kicks some hardcore ass.

Almost Famous just missed the cut for mine, but it does have one of my top 5 scenes of all time.

On the bus. Tiny Dancer. Makes me feel good to be alive.

Mine will probably most resemble Beav's, sadly. This is hard, obviously. I think my Top 5 are always gonna be my top 5, but the rest could move up or down, or be replaced by current #'s 26-50. And, inevitably I'll forget one, but, I'll shut up and post:

1) G-dfather
2) A Clockwork Orange
3) G-dfather II
4) Empire Strikes Back (What can I say? It's an action film and all and obviously it's not the 4th greatest film ever made but I have seen it too many times to count, and will see it many more times, and it never gets old for me)
5) Shawshank Redemption
6) Chariots of Fire (This one seems to bore everyone, me, it capitaves and stirs)
7) Raging Bull
8) Goodfellas
9) 2001 - A Space Odyssey
10) Excalibur (Again, this is not the 10th best film ever made, but, I love Arthurian myth, and there's just something very lush and majestic about it...plus, has Helen Mirren, Gabriel Byrne, Liam Neeson and Patrick Stewart in it, though some have small roles)
11) Star Wars
12) Raiders of the Lost Ark
13) Schindler's List
14) Taxi Driver
15) Dr. Strangelove
16) The Two Towers (Agreed with Beav, this is my fave of the 3...things are getting darker and urgent..love all 3, though)
17) Broadcast News
18) Monty Python and the Holy Grail
19) The Game
20) The Deer Hunter
21) Blade Runner
22) Chinatown
23) Return of the King
24) Field of Dreams
25) The Big Lebowski and Network are tied here

Honorable mention to: Jedi, Fellowship of the Ring, Bottle Rocket, Dune (My favorite bad movie of all time), Roadhouse (another favorite bad movie), Tombstone (same deal), Swingers (which is really #25A), The Natural, Defending Your Life, The Prestige, Braveheart, Gladiator, Master and Commander, Fast Times, Children of Men and on and on)

ETA: Mentions to 12 Monkeys, Time Bandits, Fargo, Unforgiven, Croupier as well. Ugh, so hard, this....

I'm definitely adding 25-50 later, especially since I saw The Big Lebowski all the way for the first time and it really deserves to be in the Top 25.

New Rule:

If you would like to re-do your list, than you can as long as you tell me which list you want to use. Okay? Okay. :Up:

It's 10x harder than it sounds. I think a top 200 would be easier to work through than whittling things down to a top 25. Fun, though.

Hmm, probably. What I'm hoping for is enough people to submit Top 25 Lists so I can make a pretty good Top 50 Interference Board, now I'm beginning to think submitting your Top 50 for an Interference Top 100 is better.

Maybe since people did a top 25 already, you leave it for now...then post the results....then do a top 50 another time, down the line?

I just realized I put Anchorman twice.

Take the Anchorman at #15 out and add Dumb And Dumber. I don't know how that happened.

Yeah, good call, I was thinking the same thing.

It's interesting how some people are posting Revenge of the Sith over Jedi on their lists. Apart from some of it's flaws, I'm starting to feel like Sith is as good or better than Jedi.

I know, I know, Jedi has Jabba, the best space battle ever, Luke/Vader II, and muthafuckin' Ackbar, but Sith's overall story and Palpy are insanely good.

If Anakin/Padme had some decent dialogue, the Rebellion deleted scenes were in the movie, and Mace didn't go out like a bitch, Sith would be, hands down, better than Jedi.

I am utterly disappointed in the lack of American History X in this thread.

Just an incredible film.

The story is incredible, the acting is SUPERB(Edward Norton was straight robbed of an Oscar that year, 1998), the filming is phenomenal(flashbacks in b&w and present in color), the direction is phenomenal, everything is brilliant.

I think the word 'powerful' is a word that is tossed around too often when describing films, but in this case, it's completely accurate. This film is absolutely one of the most powerful I've seen, in the truest sense of the word.

I know this is all subjective, so I'm not going to sit here and say you're all wrong for not including it - that would be silly.

But I am surprised that no one has included it yet.
