Memento (2000)


Great acting, great story, a few funny sequences and great directing make 'Memento' a cult classic, it is just my all time favorite movie! And the ending just makes you wonder "How can it end there?"

'American Beauty' is indeed an American beauty! What can I say? I doubt 'Fight Club' will be as good in my opinion and I can say that this is one of those rare times where the Academy Awards have got it right!

Citizen Kane (1941)


'Citizen Kane' features a brilliant plot! The movie also features great acting by the entire cast, entertaining script and fantastic direction by Orson Welles. One of the best movies ever.

I really love this movie, it was a great idea and it’s well acted, a great achievement and better than 'Forrest Gump' for sure

This is a great movie, it’s full of iconic, memorable scenes and murders, it’s also got complicated but interesting different moments in time, serving as both a sequel and a prequel to ‘The Godfather’. I don’t like it as much as the first, but I barely enjoy the first one more, and they’re both among my favourite films! This is really enjoyable like the first one, and probably the best sequel of all time!

‘The Truman Show’ is probably the best film Jim Carrey will ever make in his career, and his performance is great as well. Carrey knows what kind of performance to give at the right moment. Laura Linney and Ed Harris are also very good in their supporting roles. Like ‘Forrest Gump’ or ‘Juno’, the film balances comedy and drama perfectly. The script is also rather intelligent with everyone on the island in which Truman lives, being aware of Truman’s popularity with the exception of Truman, and their attempts to stop him leaving the island. It would be hard to say what audience the show is written for, as it films every aspect of Truman’s life.

You can't hate 'Schindler's List', no way, no how! Steven Spielberg directs one of the best movies of all time 'Schindler's List', a detailed well told masterpiece about Oskar Schindler; here he's played by Liam Neeson who gives one of the top spot performances of all time!

Boyhood (2014)


'Boyhood' is a brilliant drama with important messages, it features serious dialogue and teaches important lessons about parenting and growing up! Richard Linklater directs it intelligently, his script is serious and brilliantly written! The supporting cast including Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke are all fantastic! The film is frequently intense and features some intense realism of ageing!

Life of Brian (1979)


‘Life of Brian’ focuses on a man named Brian (Graham Chapman) who is born in a stable next to Jesus (Kenneth Colley), and at the same time, and is ultimately mistaken for the Messiah. The film features some offensive but hilarious dialogue, along with hilarious comedic performances by the whole writing team for the film, along with additional actors such as Kenneth Colley and Sue Jones-Davies. There’s also the iconic song ‘Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life’ which originated from this film, and has had people struggling to find a clean version of the song for years.

Earlier today, I watched ‘Akira’, and that along with ‘Grave of the Fireflies’ and ‘Spirited Away’, prove that Japan produce the best animated movies (or anime as they call it). This one happens to be my second favourite animated movie ever (‘Spirited Away’ is still my favourite)

Christopher Nolan is king of directors! Everything he does is awesome! 'The Dark Knight' is the best superhero movie since 'The Incredibles' and in actuality, the new superhero movie champion! Heath Ledger was amazing!

Psycho (1960)


With this, Alfred Hitchcock brings you a film that will keep you glued to the screen by its visual style and you'll only want to look away during the murder scenes! With great plotting, visual style, direction and acting, 'Psycho' is one of the best horror films of all time, if not the best!

Casablanca (1942)


'Casablanca' is a classic movie, one of the best classics ever! The plot is inspiring, the performances by the cast including Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt and Sydney Greenstreet, are amazing! The dialogue is brilliant, memorable and well said ('You'll regret it! Not today, not tomorrow, but some time for the rest of your life!'). One of those very old brilliant classics like 'Gone With The Wind' and 'The Wizard of Oz' but better than both of them!

As the best fantasy movie ever, 'The Return of the King' has everything you could ever want - great visual style, acting, writing, directing and music! It's better than any 'Harry Potter' movie! It's also far scarier than the other two 'Lord of the Rings' movies!

It delivers almost everything you need to know about Ebert! It's got scenes of intense emotion and also scenes of comedy of Ebert and Siskel bickering! A powerful two thumbs up documentary!

'Life of Pi' is brilliantly acted, directed, written and filmed. The script is emotional, touching, intense and at certain times hilarious! Pi is seen at four points in his life and he is played fantastically by Suraj Sharma! Sharma puts emotion and life into his performance when telling the tiger what to do and what not to do and when his family die on the sinking ship and when the tiger leaves him to go to the jungle of an island!

In the Loop (2009)


In The Loop' is one of the most adult movies rated 15 and it should be rated 15. It's got tons of adult content and is full of non-stop laughter, hilarious dialogue and pop culture references! It comes up with genius jokes (unlike those lame jokes with farting and someone losing their pants) including the whole fax machine scene and the dialogue is full of golden showcase jokes! Hilarious gold! Strictly for adults with good taste only!

Nice list. I hope you elaborate on it. I too like Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" although no one else seems to. Speaking of Crispin Glover, have you seen "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" He plays a small part and it is a very good movie.

out of curiosity, how old are you? Not a weirdo or anything, I'm just curious because on your 'worst movies' list you said that recent releases came out 'when you were twelve,' yet you write very maturely. You don't have to tell me if you are not comfortable with it. I like a lot of the movies on here. And "Memento" is way better than "The Dark Knight."
