    Have we done this before? Probably. But let's do it again. Should make for a good thread, I reckon. Going to have a bit of a think about my own list.

    Not allowed anything after 2000 mind. And can't include the Godfather because it's too good. Don't forget to tell people you're a gurl if they criticise your choice.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Here's my first draft. There's a couple of choices I'm expecting to take a bit of flak on. :) There's some right classics I inexplicably haven't seen, need to fix that.

    Mulholland Drive
    Black Swan
    Wild at Heart
    There Will be Blood
    The Godfather Part II
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    All the President's Men
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    Airplane
    Blue Velvet

    I've only watched The Godfather Part II and Blue Velvet recently, so that may be the new factor weighing in on those a bit. Perhaps not though, especially in the case of The Godfather.

    The Thing and Night of the Living Dead nearly made it, but I had to go for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I remember it as being the first film that genuinely scared me. It still does when I watch it now. The bit where she wakes up in the house and the family are at the table is utterly terrifying. And that final shot of Leatherface...

    Airplane is, unless I'm forgetting something, the funniest film I've seen. It's such a shame the way the spoof movies died a total death (there are some exceptions like Black Dynamite, but that isn't really in the same league). To think in the 70s it was Airplane and The Naked Gun (another close call) and now it's stuff like the Scary Movie films.

    edit: Ooh, Se7en. Forgot about that. The Truman Show is a great pick too, but I don't think it'll be in my list.

    Airplane? Surely you can't be serious.

    Airplane and Dumb and Dumber are the two films that made me laugh the most hysterically.

    Ooh, Alien too (not Aliens for me, although it is ace). And 12 Angry Men's just come to mind too.

    I realise 8th is a little high for The Double Life of Véronique, but what can I say, Krzysztof Kieslowskis work has always been a guilty pleasure of mine.

    Ok proper list off the top of my head. Not in any order, and there's about five in there I'm not happy about, and there's a lot of films I've liked more in the past, but not so much now (maybe because I've sickened myself with them like - the original Star Wars trilogy for example) but here it is anyway.

    Blade Runner
    Jaws
    Predator
    Old Boy
    Alien
    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
    The Dark Knight
    Goodfellas
    George of the Jungle
    LOTR
    Borat

    Ohg yeah pulp fiction as well. And Kill Bill. I really like Twilight Samurai and Ghost in the Shell 2 Innocence as well. And Ninja Scroll. And shit loads more.

    Its impossible to have a top ten to be honest. Films are far too dependent on mood.
