    As you can see from my list, I like animated movies and family films most.

    1. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
    2. Beauty and the Beast
    3. Aladdin
    4. Home Alone
    5. The Land Before Time
    6. Shrek
    7. The Sandlot
    8. A Christmas Story
    9. The Dark Knight
    10. Jingle All the Way (Yes I'm actually serious. I love this movie)


    Zoolander, Anchorman, George of the Jungle, Spider-Man 2, Finding Nemo, Casper, The Flintstones, The Matrix, Wall-E, The Emperor's New Groove, Toy Story, Good Burger, 101 Dalmatians (animated) and Disney's Tarzan are also some of my favorites. (I think come November, I'm gonna have to update my list by adding Wreck-It Ralph.)

    I see you like Shaw Bros movies.

    Have you seen Dirty Ho (not a porno) and 8 Diagram Pole Fighters?

    Those are my two favorites.

    Messiah.. I've seen them all. I'm a fan from when FOX was NYW and used to play them on saturdays during the early 80's. I spent a fortune on the Celestial R3 remasters. My Shaw Bros collection comes in at a few hundred titles.

    Disciples of Shaolin,The Fastest Sword, Shaolin Temple, Have Sword Will Travel, Forbidden Forest,One Armed Swordsmen Trilogy, Golden Swallow, The Five Venoms, A Deadly Secret, Human Lanterns ( which I watch every Halloween).... I could go on.All this stuff would fill my personal top list of films :)

    Yup, watching Kung Fu movies after the cartoons went off every Saturday morning was one of the magical things about the 80's.

    It seems you like swordplay in your kung fu movies. Are you going to check out the Rza's new kung fu movie, Man with the Iron Fists?

    I was watching Boogie Nights for the first time in a long time a couple days ago.

    Amazing movie. Highly underrated.

    I can't narrow it to a top ten. Some of my honorable mentions could be on my list of twelve next week. And there are plenty of directors I like whose films are nowhere to be found on this list.

    - A Taste of Cherry & The Koker Trilogy
    - 2001: A Space Odyssey
    - Andrei Rublev
    - Stromboli
    - Love Streams
    - The Killing of a Chinese Bookie
    - The Passion of Joan of Arc
    - Pickpocket
    - Diary of a Country Priest
    - City Lights
    - All That Heaven Allows
    - The Idiots

    Honorable Mentions:

    - Why Does Herr R. Run Amok?, Killer of Sheep, Rules of the Game, The General, The Life of Jesus, Birth of a Nation, My Life to Live, Rear Window, Vertigo, The Magnificent Ambersons, The Indian Runner, Rebel Without A Cause, You Can't take It With You, It's a Wonderful Life...

    Thanks. :word:

    I like your list as well, with several of your titles having gone through my mind as I was trying to condense my list (Barry Lyndon, the Seventh Seal, Shadow of a Doubt and Days of Heaven). I love noir and went through a number of titles for my list. The Big Sleep is my favorite as well, followed closely by Scarlet Street which in turn got me thinking of La Chienne which should probably be among my honorable mentions...

    I love your description of The Thin Man, particularily the last line:

    "May be the best portrayal of a happy marriage film has ever given us, and proof that happiness indeed can be cinematic."

    Cheers.

    Really? I get that it was a technical marvel for its time but I cannot reconcile that with the film's message.
