It's a so bad, it's good-type of cult classic, but I'm a big fan. I think you'd like it if you re-watched it.

Beav, he's right. It's up your alley. It's fantastic in the way some bad films are.

Speaking of bad movies, I've gotten hooked on MST3K again after an absence of about a year, and God, there are some REALLY terrible movies out there. I'm looking at you Monster A-Go-Go

Oh you little BASTARD! I've been on holiday since the 7th and totally missed all this. Gah, I'll start work on a lit later and post it this evening or tomorrow.

I'm not impressed boyo, did you like wait for me to leave before starting starting this thread? Is this how you get your kicks?! *flails in anger*

So this is what I've come up with. More of a slant to the post 80s cinema than I may have liked, but I've been pretty honest with myself and cut some older films in favour of those I can watch again and again. In a fairly scattered order:

Memento (Nolan)
Raiders of the Lost Ark (Spielberg)
Ghost Busters (Reitman)
Aliens (Cameron)
The Fugutive (Davies)
LA Confidential (Hanson)
American Beauty (Mendes)
Seven (Fincher)
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (Zemeckis)
Pulp Fiction (Tarantino)
City of God (Meirelles)
About Schmidt (Payne)
The Naked Gun (Zucker)
American Pie (Weitz)
Groundhog Day (Ramis)
North by North West (Hitchcock)
The Blues Brothers (Landis)
Witness for the Prosecution (Wilder)
Broken Flowers (Jarmusch)
True Romance (Scott)
Brick (Johnson)
The Big Sleep (Hawks)
Trainspotting (Boyle)
Before Sunrise (Linklater)
Before Sunsey (Linklater)
The Godfather (Coppola)
Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (Weir)
Citizen Kane (Welles)
Cinema Paradiso (Tornatore)
My Neighbour Totoro (Miyazaki)
Rear Window (Hitchcock)
Raging Bull (Scorsese)
12 Angry Men (Lumet)
Ed Wood (Burton)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Lee)
Double Indemnity (Wilder)
It Happened One Night (Capra)
Fargo (Coen)
Back to the Future (Zemeckis)
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (Huston)
In the Mood for Love (Wong)
Brief Encounter (Lean)
Ocean's 11 (Soderbergh)
Charade (Donen)
His Girl Friday (Hawks)
The Emperor's New Groove (Dindal)
M (Lang)
The Shining (Kubrick)
Anatomy of a Murder (Preminger)
Ikiru (Kurosawa)

That's how I feel today anyway.

my brother, the dork that he is, compiled a list of his top 100 movies a few years ago. he's been changing it ever since, i'm pretty sure it's only about 30% the same list he had when he started it. the kid watches a lot of movies. me, not so much. i can count on one hand the movies i've seen this year. so i figured, in a fit of major ocd-ness, in order to make such a list for myself, i'd have to first compile a list of everything i've seen. and then from there i can copy and paste the list of shitty movies, the list of awesome movies, etc. with/without ranks. so yeah, i'm currently up to the letter T on my way through the most recent of one of those leonard maltin every movie in the world books. so far it's looking like i haven't even seen 100 movies i like.

Sweet mix of stuff on there. Most of what I've seen, I enjoy a hell of a lot, too.

Cheers chaps. Some good lists in here, it's fun to read through a large variety of titles and see how people's tastes have developed since last time this was done.

Some films I'll need to add to my Lovefilm queue when I set it up again too.
