Inspired by the giraffe's Help me lower my IQ this summer list, I've decided to create a similar list. I have steadily increasing stock of DVDs and Blu-rays that I'm struggling to figure out which films I should watch.

Therefore, I need you help!
I need you to pick out 10 films from this list that you think I should have seen already. Number 1 will get 10 points, number 10 will get 1 point. You also have the chance to list two films you think I should avoid. They will lose one point each.

I've seen some of them sometimes before, but that's not the point.

Since this list increases so fast, you get the chance to vote once a week!

When I'm done seeing a film, I will remove it from this list and post it in my Film Diary.

5. A Separation

Should've seen:
1 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

4 Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium
5 The Class
6 The Rescuers
7 A Perfect Getaway
8 Scream 4
9 Dumbo
10 Harry Potter

Avoid:
Captain America: The First Avenger
Kung Fu Panda 2
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Jun 9 20:59
If I could give all the points to 8½ I would, but here's the list as that isn't possible:
1. 8½
2. Naked
3. All About Eve
4. La Dolce Vita
5. Limelight
6. The Great Dictator
7. Dogtooth
8. Green Zone
9. Dogville
10. May

I'd say definately avoid Inland Empire. Lynch at his absolute worst. The Two Jakes is also friggin awful, so that'd be the second one.
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Jun 9 23:48
I have not seen all of these movies but I've seen, here's my top five:
1. Sideways
2. True Grit
3. Scream 4
4. Kung Fu Panda 2
5. From Paris With Love

Avoid:
The Other Guys

I love Sideways, and From Paris with Love is really enjoyable action flick because of John Travolta. But holy shit the Other Guys. That movie sucks so much, that I don't even have the words to describe it. Marky Mark is just yelling and Will Ferrell is just pure shit like he always are.

Just to increase the points of the most definitive must-sees, although it was rather difficult to pick just ten.

1. 8½
2. La Dolce Vita
3. Limelight
4. Fanny and Alexander
5. All About Eve
6. Inland Empire
7. Naked
8. Dogville
9. I Vitelloni
10. The Great Dictator

Burton's Planet of the Apes doesn't deserve further rewatches, as it totally lacks the depth and provocativity of the original classic. Postpone your Harry Potter -marathon too.
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Jun 23 0:14
I recommend...

1. Short Cuts
2. Inland Empire
3. The Cell
4. 1900
5. La Dolce Vita

9. The Swindle
