Sounds good.
The evil concept of time difference will now drag me away from this fine discussion on cinema.
Take care, I anticipate the 60's poll! (greatest decade in cinema)

I forgot to add In the Mood for Love to my 2000's list, but since it doesn't count, I won't bother to edit.

I'm dying to make a Woody Allen joke here, but I've got too much class to do so.

Lazarus, remove Pulp Fiction for Chungking Express, or it will never get a chance.

1. Eyes Wide Shut (Stanley Kubrick, 1999)
2. Chungking Express (Wong Kar Wai, 1994)
3. La double vie de Véronique (Krzysztof Kieslowski, 1991)
4. Goodfellas (Martin Scorsese, 1990)
5. Lost Highway (David Lynch, 1997)
6. Being John Malkovich (Spike Jonze, 1999)
7. Fargo (Joel Coen, 1996)
8. Smoke (Wayne Wang, 1995)
9. Breaking The Waves (Lars Von Trier, 1996)
10. The Usual Suspects (Bryan Singer, 1995)
11. Les amants du Pont-Neuf (Leos Carax, 1991)
12. Before Sunrise (Richard Linklater, 1995)
13. American Beauty (Sam Mendes, 1999)
14. Toy Story (John Lasseter, 1995)
15. Schindler's List (Steven Spielberg, 1993)

I will not have either Pulp Fiction or Shawshank Redemption win this poll.
Lovers on the Bridge! Totally forgot about that one.
I'm surprised that someone with such great taste would let the manipulative Schindler's near their List, but you're certainly not the first.

Your 00's list is great as well. I think I forgot to put Bad Education on mine, and I don't know why it's not as admired by others. While it's not typical Almodovar, I think it's his masterpiece.

My 2 cents...

I've seen Eyes Wide Shut several times, and I just don't care for it. Don't understand why anyone would have it as #1. And no, I am not watching it yet again

1.American History X
2.Forrest Gump
3.The Silence Of The Lambs
4.Titanic
5.Terminator 2
6.What About Bob
7.Home Alone
8.The Big Lebowski
9.Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
10.Something About Mary
11.Office Space
12.Forget Paris
13.Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
14.Jurassic Park
15.The Usual Suspects
16.The Truman Show
17.Fight Club
18.Sleepless In Seattle
19.Dumb And Dumber
20.Being John Malkovich
21.The Big Kahuna
22.The American President
23.Philadelphia
24.Die Hard With A Vengeance
25.Armageddon(guilty pleasure, nostaliga, etc)
26.Rush Hour

NOTES:

1.I am disheartened to see that no one has even put American History X on their list yet. Incredible, incredible film.

2.I have not seen American Beauty or Schindler's List yet. If/when I do see them, chances are at least one of them gets into the top 15.

3.I will not apologize for putting Titanic that high. I think it was an extraordinarily well-done film, despite the chick-flick-y aspects of it.

I think this decade will fare better than any other in comedy.

Lebowski?

Office Space?

Something About Mary?

Ace Ventura?

What About Bob?

Even the PG slapstick of Home Alone?

The underrated Forget Paris?

Clerks(which didn't even make it onto my list)?

I mean, come on.

I see what you did there. I put it in because I think it's a great achievement. Personally I don't really care for the film.

I love it. Its impressive way of slightly twisting the narrative and brilliant story gets me every time. Top 3 Kubrick for me.

It's funny, I don't care much for Almodóvar - he's great, but just not my type of director. But I needed one film in there, because his work in the last 10 years or so is indisputably impeccable. So I put the only one I ever wanted to watch more than twice.

Link me yours!

Instead, apologize for this:

Truman Show I overlooked though, such a f'cking amazing film. I may edit my list now. I personally love Jim Carrey, but Ace Ventura the #9 best film of the 90's?

I could copy-paste what I said about Shawshank to state my views on Titanic, but I'll let you have it.

Not forcing you to watch it again (though still advicing you), I'll tell you why I put it #1:

1. Arguably best cinematography of any Kubrick-film.

2. The experimentation with the narrative and reality, which succeeds all the way.

3. Without being completely revolutionary, it remains the perhaps most inventive film of the decade.

4. I know when I watch it again in 50 years time, I'll still love it.

i agree with you. it's one of those films that's cool to hate, but it's also sensationally well done for what it intends to be -- a big, dumb romance that's every bit the "gone with the wind" of the 2nd half of the 20th century.

Thanks, the main reason would be me forgetting it.
So why not do it now?

60's (American cinema = pretty depressing):

1. Le mépris (Jean-Luc Godard, 1963)
2. 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick, 1968)
3. À bout de souffle (Jean-Luc Godard, 1960)
4. 8½ (Federico Fellini, 1963)
5. Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned To Stop Worring and Love the Bomb (1964)
6. Psycho (Alfred Hitchcock, 1960)
7. La Dolce Vita (Federico Fellini, 1960)
8. Belle de jour (Luis Buñuel, 1967)
9. Once Upon A Time In The West (Sergio Leone, 1968)
10. Alphaville, une étrange aventure de Lemmy Caution (Jean-Luc Godard, 1965)
11. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (Sergio Leone, 1966)
12. Blow-Up (Michelangelo Antonioni, 1966)
13. Rosemary's Baby (Roman Polanski, 1968)
14. The Graduate (Mike Nichols, 1967)
15. Vivre sa vie (Jean-Luc Godard, 1962)

#1 and #2 are coincidentially my #1 and #2 best films of all time. You guessed it, I love Godard.

I'll be back later with 70's/80's.
(I haven't watched any Bergman )

BTW, after reading through the thread, people reminded me of movies I forgot.

I can't edit my original post, so:

Switch Schindler's List with Trainspotting, move one place up, placing Toy Story on a solid #15.
