1. 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.

2. 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.

3. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)


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.

4. Grave of the Fireflies (1988)


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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. Do the Right Thing (1989)


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.

8. Once Upon a Time in America (1984)


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.

People who added this item 2270  Average listal rating (1410 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 8.2 
9. 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.
johanlefourbe's rating:

People who added this item 3482  Average listal rating (2154 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating 8.3 
10. Scarface (1983)


Note: Al Pacino is huge and very mercurial in this movie. The story of a loser from Cuba who tries to make it big in America but ends up still a loser. A spellbinding story

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.

@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.
