    Simple people, just list your top 5 favorite films of all time. It can be old, new or new new. Ill start it off.

    I love films.I consider making a film and or directing, producing, script writing and editing film an art, and it is. I working on a few project that i want to do. I was to be a filmaker myself. So here are my top 5. They were really hard to choose since i love a lot of films. Im into all kinds of genres when it comes to films.

    5. Alfred Hitchcock's Dial "M" For Murder.
    Probably one of the first Hitchcock film that i enjoyed. As a little kid, i wasent really into old classic movies. But as i got a little older, i started to watch them and Dial "M" For Murder i must say...is a fanastic piece of art from Hitchcock. I consider this film a Noir and a femme fatale film because it is about a lady juggling two men. Her husband tries to kill her, but instead blackmails someone from the hubands past to kill his wife. Its not a black and white film but it has that film noir to it. i highly sugest to watch this film if you havent.

    4. Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver
    Damn this movie is good. Martin Scorses did a fantastic job directing this film. I couldn't decide between two Scorses film, it was between Taxi driver and Raging Bull.I know Scorses didn't write Taxi Driver but he did direct them and i love this film.

    3. Sergio Leone's The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
    This movie is amazing. Sergio Leone is a genius. I love this film. If someone was to ask me if i had to choose a movie from the past to direct, which one would it be and why...it would be The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, why? Because everything about this film is amazing. It had me on the edge of my seat really. Great film.

    2. Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction
    Theres really nothing else to say about this movie but great. I mean Tarantino really naild it with this film.I love all his film.He brought back that exploitation feeling to me when i watched his films. It was hard for me to choose one of his films to because i love all of them, and yes, i did see Django Unchained and i love that one too.

    1. Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
    It was hard for me to choose, but damn. I love this movie. i also liked Snatch, RocknRolla, Revolver.But this one is by far my favorite Guy Ritchie film.the whole movie was a rollercoaster. There was like three different sides to the story and they all fused together perfectly. The ending was crazy and throughout the whole film there was humor. I love this film Great movie.

    It was hard for me to choose these films. But the list keeps going on and on. These are my top five favorite films, and my opinions people so dont go off on me lol.

    Whats your Top 5 Favorite Films???

    1. Die Hard
    An amazing thrill ride from start to finish. The perfect action film, with the perfect(ly flawed) hero.

    2. Predator
    A brilliant blend of sci-fi, action and horror. The characters are G.I. Joe action figures, fighting a G.I. Joe Alien!

    3. The Last Boy Scout
    Bruce Willis at his dirtiest, throwing Shane Black dialogue like he was born to.

    4. Die Hard: With a Vengeance
    The natural progression to John McClane's story. Unlike the other ones, this one feels like it takes place in the same world.

    5. Lethal Weapon
    The best buddy cop movie ever. Amazing chemistry between Riggs and Murtaugh and crazy Gary Busey.

    I find it damn near impossible to narrow it down to 5. I have a hard enough time with 10, lol.

    But here it goes:

    1.) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    2.) Blade Runner
    3.) Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
    4.) The Lion King
    5.) Brazil

    If I were to make this list tomorrow, there would probably be completely different films up there (except the top 2) from my vast list of favorites, depending on my mood, lol. Another day it might include any of these instead: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, M, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, Psycho, Memento, The Prestige, Lost in Translation, Die Hard, The Incredibles, Fargo, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, or 12 Monkeys. My all-time favorites, every last one of 'em.
