1. Aguirre: The Wrath of God (1972)
The best movie you saw during the last year

I knew I would love this but I never expected it to enter my top 10. Flawless film.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 83  Average listal rating (36 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 7.7 
2. A Room For Romeo Brass (1999)
The most underrated movie

A fantastic British film with a very human story. Not enough people have seen this!
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 1053  Average listal rating (637 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating 8.6

A movie that makes you really happy

Funny and charming, the ending is so warm it melts your heart.

4. Midnight Cowboy (1969)
A movie that makes you sad

This makes me more than just sad, it makes me borderline depressed and it is all the more a classic for that.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 691  Average listal rating (417 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating 8.3 
5. It Happened One Night (1934)
Favourite love story in a film

The classic 'Opposites Atrract' Romance, it is great to see the bickering pair gradually grow closer on their journey.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 25  Average listal rating (16 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 7.9 
6. Goodnight, Mister Tom (1998)
Favourite made for TV movie

As well as being a great novel, this is a fantastic adaption. I once watched this for 6 days in a row. Thought provoking and in parts shocking, this is an unmissable little gem.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 8161  Average listal rating (5236 ratings) 8.4  IMDB Rating 8.9 
7. Fight Club (1999)
The most surprising plot twist or ending

This one totally took me by surprise and it is so well done.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 2051  Average listal rating (1366 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.8 
8. South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999)
A movie that you’ve seen countless times

No exaggeration, I have probably seen this 30 times. I used to watch it every day for about 2 weeks because I found it so funny. I love South Park and it is never given enough credit and only brushed off as 'potty humour' when it is really a clever satire (people just don't see past the outrageous jokes to see this).
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 4583  Average listal rating (3014 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating 8.4 
9. Reservoir Dogs (1992)
A movie with the best soundtrack

Little Green Bag must be one of the best suited opening songs of all time and let's not forget the chilling use of 'Stuck in the Middle of You'. Perfectly placed music throughout.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 3468  Average listal rating (2214 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating 8.6 
10. Psycho (1960)
Favourte classic

[From 1960 or Before]

This has everything. Suspense, a typical classic leading lady, a fantastic twist, gerat cinematography and one of the most memoerable scores of all time. This is my second favourite film of all time.

Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 329  Average listal rating (193 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.3 
11. The Little Shop of Horrors (1960)
A movie that changed your opinion about something

Not so much an opinion on world wide matters such as racism of homophobia, this changed my opinion about black and white films. When I first put this on (it was on TV when I was about 12), I nearly turned it off because it wasn't in colour. However, I stuck by it and I am so glad I did. Certainly holds a place in my heart for being the first non-colour film I saw and for helping me realise that Black and White films can be just as good.

12. Van Wilder (2002)
A Movie you hate

This is the only film in recent years that I have turned off before it ended because it was so bad. Not even funny at all. Maybe it deserves a fair rewatch but why should I subject myself to that?
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 3837  Average listal rating (2490 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 6.2 
13. Scary Movie (2000)
A movie that is a guilty pleasure

Yes, it is fairly bad but it made me laugh when I first saw it about 6 years ago and it still makes me laugh now. I love horror films so it is great to see them spoofed.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 1118  Average listal rating (662 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 8.1 
14. Ben-Hur (1959)
A movie that no one would expect you to love

Historical Epics are not usually my type of film and most of my friends know this but I really, really loved Ben-Hur.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 1956  Average listal rating (1200 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.2 
15. Annie Hall (1977)
A character that you can relate to the most

Alvy Singer

Ok, not to the neurotic extent of Alvy but with certain aspects. His inabillty to watch a film if it has already started, even if it is just by a few seconds is probably the main one haha.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 984  Average listal rating (662 ratings) 2.8  IMDB Rating
16. Epic Movie (2007)
A movie you used to love but now hate

Now let me get this straight; I never loved this film but I certainly liked it. Now I realise how stupid I was. Hideously bad film.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 4675  Average listal rating (3238 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.8 
17. 300 (2006)
A Movie that disappointed you the most

Everyone said this was good but when I saw it, I was shocked at how bad it was. I nearly fell aslweep several times, even during the 'Awesome' battle scenes.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 569  Average listal rating (294 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.6 
18. Following (1998)
A movie you wish more people would see

Compared to Nolan's most recent films (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Inception), hardly anyone has seen his debut film. Far better than his recent films (they are still good), Following is a clever classic.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 2328  Average listal rating (1467 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.4 
19. Carrie (1976)
Favourite movie based on a book/comic

Carrie is a fantastic adaption of one of the most iconic horror novels. Handled excellently by Brian De Palma, it is fairly accurate in its adaption but more so in its matching of the novels mood.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 381  Average listal rating (226 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 7.5 
20. Five Easy Pieces (1970)
Favorite movie from your favourite actor

Although The Shining is my favourite Jack Nicholson film and performance, Five Easy Pieces is his most under rated and arguably most human portrayal.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 1293  Average listal rating (725 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 7.9 
21. Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
Favourite movie from your favourite actress

[Stand in for what would have been 'day 24 - that one awesome movie idea that still hasn’t been done yet' but I prefered this one, plus it is easier to do on Listal]

Bonnie and Clyde has my favourite performance from Faye Dunaway (Chinatown is my favourite film featuring her); she gives a fierce performance but also a human element that we rarely see in biopics depicting killers.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 3719  Average listal rating (2521 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 8.3 
22. Die Hard (1988)
Favourite Action movie

With perfect suspense and great dialogue, Die Hard is the quintessential action film.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 1436  Average listal rating (972 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
23. Bowling for Columbine (2002)
Favourite Documentary

Despite the fact Moore is often accused of bias views, Bowling for Columbine is a great dsocumentary for the fact it is so hard hitting, with a brilliant point to make.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 6603  Average listal rating (4380 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 8.3 
24. Toy Story (1995)
Favourite Animation

It is the imagination of a child, written by adutls, for children who currently have such fascinations and adults who once did with their own childhood. A film with genuine heart, that actually made me laugh out loud, rtaher than an extored snigger here and there.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 1526  Average listal rating (953 ratings) 8.4  IMDB Rating 8.6 
25. Modern Times (1936)
The most hilarious film you have seen

This made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion. It has slapstick brilliance, subtle jokes and a sweet undertone. A perfect comedy.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 623  Average listal rating (399 ratings) 5.1  IMDB Rating 5.5 
26. Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003)
A movie you love but everyone else hates

I cannot understand why people hate this film so much. It is well directed, with fantastic suspense, a good ensemble of unknowns who all give a great contribution to the film. There is even the typical 'Racial tension' crap thrown in that the PC Brigade usually lap up but nope. Why people hate this film is beyond me.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 3530  Average listal rating (2151 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 8.3 
27. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
A movie that you wish you had seen in theaters

Although this was released before I was born, it is a film I would have loved to see in the cinema with its fantastic visuals, giant set pieces and amazing use of music.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 744  Average listal rating (431 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 8.1 
28. The Killing (1956)
Favourite movie from your favorite director

This isn't my favourite film from Stanley Kubrick, The Shining is but this is his most under rated and overlooked so I chose this instead. A classic heist film, told brilliantly by the genius Kubrick.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 2689  Average listal rating (1733 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.8 
29. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)
Favourite film from my childhood

Another film I used to watch day after day after day. I loved it for everything. I loved Gene Wilder as Willy Wonker before I even knew or cared who Gene Wilder was. I loved the songs. I loved that little bit of uneasiness it had (the tunnel scene is haunting) and I loved the colour and granduer of it all. Perfect, although my parents must have been sick of it haha.
Rossjm's rating:

People who added this item 5572  Average listal rating (3710 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating 8.5 
30. The Shining (1980)
Your favourite movie of all time

The Shining is the film that got me into films. I was glued to the screen and was effected by it long after it finished. An absolute classic.

[The reason this wasn't used as the best film of my favourite actor (Jack Nicholson) or best film of my favourite director (Stanley Kubrick) was because I wanted to keep The Shining for this Favourite Film' option].
