A cheap, yet big budget, gimmicky war film that has its charm and moments but I doubt this is on anyone's mid when thinking of great war films.

I love the subject and the performances aren't bad but it's a rather poorly put together film.

Robin Williams does great but this film is rather poorly made but the nostalgia factor keeps it up here on the list.

Richard Gere actually shows some versatility. I like the early 80s synth but the sound editing was amateur and the story loses the great interest it created, by the end.

David Lynch's film opens dark but doesn't get dark enough. John Hurt, while hidden behind the mask, is still powerful in this portrayal and Hopkins plays his role masterfully.

This is a great Gonzo film, starring Bill Murray and Peter Boyle. I saw this after 'Fear and Loathing' and still Gilliam's take is the superior one but Murray's performance is awesome, right in line with Depp's, possibly better with time...

A slow burner helmed by Redford (directing debut), where every scene becomes intense for various reasons.

Scorsese, De Niro and Pesci, a combo that's unstoppable.
You know it's a good year when a Scorsese film is ranked 4th.

An insanely good horror film (a genre I'm not usually a fan of) that begs you to read between the lines in every scene (thanks to Kubrik's genius)

The best of the saga, I was blown away with every single scene, as a kid. Now every scene is iconic and it's repeat value hasn't waned much at all in the past thirty years.
