1. The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)


Guillermo del Toro : "Bride of Frankenstein is absolutely perfect. It has the innocence and beauty of a fairy tale, but has the darkness of a gothic horror tale. So the combination is irresistible." [On hearing that Hellboy comics creator Mike Mignola also named Bride of Frankenstein among his favorite films, del Toro said with a smile, "Well, we are alike in some aspects."]

2. Blade Runner (1982)


Guillermo del Toro : "Blade Runner is simply one of those cinematic drugs, that when I first saw it, I never saw the world the same way again."
Redmist's rating:

3. Los Olvidados (1950)


Guillermo del Toro : "The third film, Los Olvidados -- Bunuel's movie -- which I think is one of the best depictions of childhood ever made"

4. The Road Warrior (1981)


Guillermo del Toro : "The Road Warrior --- again, it transformed the way I see the world."

5. City Lights (1931)


Guillermo del Toro : "And [lastly] probably City Lights by Chaplin, because this is absolute a pinnacle of filmmaking. You have precision comedy, precision filmmaking, and one of the best directors ever. He and Buster Keaton were fantastic, and they were two of my idols."
