Don't be checking what's there, just rattle off ten that you think must be rated in the Top 20 of all time.

For mine, see above.

Obviously, I cheated--I'm giving you my top 20, instead of just 10. And, at that, I had to edit myself. I couldn't put in "The Decalogue." Or "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre." Or "Les Yeux sans Visage." Or "Night of the Living Dead."

Everything in my list has pretty much been mentioned, but I really don't care as long as Pulp Fiction is in there.

"The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" is one I'm not familiar with, and it isn't reviewed. Seems like you should redress that, by writing a review.

Hmmm, maybe because dionwr doesn't share your brain?

Yeah, because you know, that's on the same level with the Godfather, Taxi Driver, and Goodfellas. Anybody else pissed when it got snuffed at the Oscars?

K... I am not really sure about the order, but
here goes:

1.) Natural Born Killers

2.) Lost Highway

3.) The Fifth Element

4.) Reservoir Dogs

5.) True Romance

6.) Blade Runner

7.) Mad Max

8.) Grosse Point Blank

9.) Ferris Buellers Day Off

10.) Taxi Driver

Again, the order, I don't know, my favorite
movie tends to change with my mood, weather,
beer, no beer, etc... But ya know how that is...

BTW... The Fast and the Furious has GOT to be
the dumbest movie I have EVER seen. No plot
(to speak of), silly action scenes (ever raced a
10 second car? you cant really open up a laptop
in mid race and type in commands), dialog that
SHOULD make it a comedy, but it comes off to
serious for that (lines like: I live my life one
quarter mile at a time?!?!? wtf!!!), and just
basic bad acting. WHEN oh WHEN will hollywood
stop making these horrible action movies? I guess
when stupid people stop going to see these stupid
movies. Sorry, had to rant.

Shit...

I totally forgot DUNE... duh...

Yes, I am a David Lynch fan, so sue me.

Kinda funny how Robert Blake played the devil in a movie where Bill Pullman kills his wife, and now is accused of killing his own wife...

weird stuff... ever scene the mpg footage of that helicopter accident in the filming of twilight zone II? Kinda like that.
