Blade Runner (1982)


Note: It is my favorite Science Fiction movie. The look and the mood are great. The story is fascinating and the cast is awesome. A great classic.

Shoah (1985)


Note: To be honest, with its running time of more than 9 hours, it was slightly daunting and I wonder if it is really watchable in one sitting. In my case, I split it in 5 bits and it worked fine this way. Anyway, coming back to the movie itself, it wasn't a great movie, it turned out to be one of the best movies I have ever seen, no less than that. It is such a poweful and an important movie, I believe it should be a compulsory watch in school for all the teenagers. I mean, I have seen many movies dealing with WWII but even the great classics like 'Schindler's List' or 'The Pianist' don't come near the brutality displayed in this shattering documentary. Indeed, we have all heard about the holocaust but, with this movie, the total horror comes so close, following testimonies of the victims, the perpetrators and people who just happened to be around at the time.

Dead Ringers (1988)


Note: This movie is really creepy and it has one of the best perfomances ever. Jeremy Irons portrays 2 different twins so well that if even though they are identical, you can easily identify them. The story is fascinating as well.

Note: It is my favorite Indiana Jones movie. There is a great chemistry between Harrison Ford and Sean Connery, there are loads of cool action scenes and the story is very captivating. A great classic.

Note: It is not one of the best animated films, it is actually of the best films ever made, period! It is really heartbreaking and one of the few times I almost bursted into tears. A powerful story beautifully animated.

Paris, Texas (1984)


Note: This movie is little forgotten nowadays but it's a shame. It has one of the best soundtrack ever. The story, the directing and acting are just amazing and it's just a really mesmerizing picture.

Raging Bull (1980)


Note: It is such a classic. One of the best movies produced by De Niro and Scorsese. Amazing story and easily the best sport movie ever made.

Note: I always loved Spike Lee's movies and this one is definitely his masterpiece. It is a simple story but there are so many layers, it is just fascinating.

Note: One of the best gangster movies ever made. It's a shame that Leone couldn't make anymore movies after this one. A great picture.

Platoon (1986)


Note: It is my favorite war movie. It is at the same time entertaining but also challenging with 3 dimensional characters. A dark description of warfare.

Great list. Last Crusade is my favorite too...thought I might be alone on that for a while there. Haven't seen Dead Ringers yet. On my Netflix Queue. Grave of the Fireflies is a nice, unexpected touch.

Great list especially with Do The Right Thing on there but have never liked Paris, Texas. It should've been so much more affecting than it turned out to be.

@JayTrotter, 'Paris, Texas' is definitely an aquired taste so I can understand that you didn't like it.

Aliens

@Veed, even though I enjoyed 'Aliens', it is far from being one of my favorite movies. I prefer 'Alien' but it is a personal opinion.
