Are you serious about Rush Hour 2? Not judging, but a buddy-cop movie seems like an odd choice.

Anyway, mine is The Warriors. That sort of gang culture was always cool to me.

Rush Hour 2 was definitely the best of the trilogy but the best Western-made Jackie Chan film would have to Shanghai Noon, has lots of great jokes in it and Jackie Chan really can act in it.

possilbe bttf spoilers but everyone should have seen these films before

And as for BTTF being the perfect trilogy, you can easily tell that they screwed themselves at the end of BTTF1. They weren't expecting to make a sequel and then ended it with Jennifer in the Delorean at the end and that was really f*cking awful as they had to write around her for the next two, they also showed the not to mention that BTTF3 shoehorned the western element out of nowhere and wasn't really connected to anything. Still really good though.

vanga: Surprised you haven't watched the DVD commentary yet, I thought all the fans of the movies would have at least watched that version. No offence or anything.

Once Upon A Time in the West or Paths of Glory for me.

But for sheer enjoyment and how rewatchable they are, either Commando or The Departed.

I know everyone is entitled to their opinions......but Rush Hour 2?.....Really?

Anyway...in no particular order.....

Goodfellas
Casino
Godfather 1 + 2
Donnie Brasco
A Bronx Tale
American History X
American Psycho
No Country For Old Men
The Usual Suspects
Heat
Full Metal Jacket
The Shining

.....probably a few others I've forgot.

Also, I notice Scarface always seems to rank high on peoples lists, but that film is hugely overrated imo. I only first watched it 3, maybe 4 years ago and was pretty disappointed after hearing all the positive rep that surrounds that film. The storyline was mediocre at best.

Im with you on all of those except for Donnie Brasco, what a pile of sh*t. Trade it for Donnie Darko.

I suppose if I was forced to live with just one film for the rest of my life I'd go with Animal House. It always cheers me up.

The movie I have watched more than any other would be "the Matrix". Loved it in my teens, recently bout the trilogy set and loved it all over again.

The sequels are nice, but don't have the heart of the first.
What is that crap about the power of the one transcending the matrix. Meaning neo has powers in the real world against the machines.???????

Back To The Future
Scarface
The Departed

Goodfellas

This isn't really true. There were subtle clues pointing towards the Wild West from the time circuit malfunctioning to 1885 and Doc wanting to visit the Wild West.

Good topic

Well first on my list is The Dark Knight Trilogy hands down. I would love to choose a favourite out of all 3 of them but truth be told I cannot as every one excels as a superhero movie. I truly believe we will never again get a trilogy like this. The stories, soundtracks, characters, sets are just perfect in my eyes. To be honest everything Chris Nolan touches is pure gold. I see a couple of people mention Inception and The Prestige again great movies

BTTF hell yes this is a classic that will never die, all 3 again were great movies.

Surprised no one has mentioned Ghostbusters this is another film in my eyes that will never die, ok the second one was a bit crap but the first one was fantastic

I've seen enough great movies in my time to know that trying to narrow them all down to one in which the traditional requirements of a good movie - such as a good script, good acting and good directing - come together in the best way possible would be impossible. But when it comes to movies that have been a profound, consciousness-expanding experience that have changed the way I perceive the world and life, that have changed the way I think and thus changed the way I am, one movie stands out among the rest.

I saw Fight Club for the first time on a Saturday night only about a half a year ago at my brother's temporary apartment in one of the westernmost neighborhoods of Helsinki without any other conception of the movie than that according to all my friends who had seen it it was a great movie and one that I would without a doubt like. A lot. And what do you know, for the next two hours and fifteen minutes I found myself far from a Western Helsinki apartment, a hovering spirit ascending from the sofa to a third-person perspective on the life of an anonymous insomniac with a white-collar job who soon finds himself hitting rock bottom with sodium hydroxide burning in his hands a mark the shape of the kiss of Tyler Durden's, a projectionist, waiter and dark, anarchic genius living just outside the reach of society and modern life.

Fight Club is a movie about man's search for sanity in a seemingly insane world where capitalist dreams of hope twist people into brainless consumers eventually dying in the hands of their own ignorance. It's a wake-up call for the new generation warning them not to follow the examples given by commercials and television and telling them to strive for something greater instead, challenging every man to self-destruct and build something new and great on the ashes. With the release of Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk, the author of the original book on which the film is based, was entitled "this generation's Don DeLillo" by himself Bret Easton Ellis giving some kind of a perspective on the revolutionary value the film and the book have for the new generation.

Very glad to see BttF get so much love, didn't really expect that. Definitely one of my favorites. I would say that as far as the trilogy goes my favorites are in the order they were released: 1, 2 then 3. I don't mind the western theme of 3 so much as the blah love story involved.

And speaking of westerns I would have to say Tombstone is toward the top of my list.. it is a relatively new western ('93) but it's very good. Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday is probably the most enjoyable performance I've ever seen.

I'm surprised no one's brought this up yet, but my personal favorite is Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver. (Starring Robert De Niro)


You talkin' to me?

EDIT:
I actually just remembered this film, Rolling Thunder.



Any fan of the Grindhouse genre would appreciate this film, it's very unique.

Sling Blade, Forrest Gump, Starsky & Hutch, and Dukes of Hazzard are my favorite movies. I really enjoy watching them from time to time. I've always enjoyed the Final Destination series of movies, too.
