07-24-2009, 12:13 AM
i know...i know. another Top 10 list. well, i just got done watching the Pirates get their asses handed to them and i was sitting down contimplating watching "Watchmen" but i decided to hop on here and check things out. and it got me thinking, "i love movies...everyone loves movies...Steelerfever.com loves movies...i wonder what some of their favorites are!?" (trust me, i think about you guys more often than i should. haha!)

so, hit it up with your Top 10 Favorite Films of All-Time

1. Fight Club
2. American History X
3. Seven
4. The Shining
5. Donnie Darko
6. Requiem For A Dream
7. Memento
8. Snatch
9. Trainspotting
10. The Deer Hunter

to me, that's a pretty solid list that hasn't really changed over the last 5 or 6 years. there've been a few flicks that slipped into my top 25, like "Brick", "Man on Fire", "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Body of Lies", and "Friday Night Lights." but i said Top 10. not Top 25. =)

See...I come back and see some of these lists..and Apocalypse Now could be up there. Raging Bull. Snath, Trainspotting. Figth Club is excellent (was watching it the other day.) I don't know that I could accurately do a Top-25...if only because I like so many different movies...all for different reasons.

Both of the new Batman Movies I've watched at least 10 times (literally), Iron Man, Fantastic Four (both) all of the X-Men movies (yeah, I'm a big comic book dork) as well as Ghost Rider.

Tell me this---why hasn't Edward Norton gotten an Oscar? He was Awesome in Fight Club and American History X (which sort of flew under the radar---I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it). He was also fantastic in the movie where he played the scared altar boy but really was the murderer...can't remember the name of it----AND the one where he pretended to be a retarded guy who helped to steal stuff from the customs office----somebody help me with the name of those 2

As for top 10s----don't forget
High Plains Drifter
Kelly's Heroes

Unfortunately, he's almost always played across from bigger names, which tends to distract others. He is an underrated actor though.

Father Goose
Twelve Angry Men
My Favorite Wife

i gotta break it down-

kill bill
shawshank redemption
american beauty
saving private ryan
forest gump
remember the titans
star wars
raiders of the lost ark
the shining

if i bump indiana jones and star wars out as franchises by themselves, i could add casino and scarface.

(the outlaw josey wales or dirty harry is possibly one of the coolest characters ever)


joe dirt
fastimes at ridgemont high
weird science
naked gun
the meaning of life

as of late, im really addicted to just about all of judd apatow films, especially

40 year old virgin
dewey cox
forgetting sarah marshal
talladega nights

it would be tough for me to narrow down all disney films-

old yeller
swiss family robinson
finding nemo
or pixar's cars

or even doctor films-

doc hollywood
patch adams
gross anatomy

special category for-

eddie murphy delirious
pink floyd the wall

good morning viet nam and glory are damn good flicks, as is rocky 1-3 and first blood.

a 'top 10" would really depend on my mood when i answer. i would like to pick the top 10 out of all the ones others have listed that i didnt.

americain history x is disturbing to many but brilliant to others (kinda like with a clockwork orange), and who doesnt love b-movie gore flicks?

im watching glory right now and it reminds me, how can i leave out the princess bride?

Deer Hunter

Bourne is an excellent trilogy (and there's a 4th book too).

I think there's more than that now, although I'll only acknowledge the first three as Ludlum wrote them. One might say the same thing about the Dune series, but at least that series stayed in the family, with Herbert's son taking over. But getting offtopic here...

The Bourne series (of books) as it stands now:

The Bourne Identity
The Bourne Supremacy
The Bourne Ultimatum
The Bourne Legacy
The Bourne Betrayal
The Bourne Sanction
The Bourne Deception
The Bourne Objective
