1. Chasing Amy (1997)
Kevin Smith at the height of his powers. When Silent Bob speaks you will be moved.
Chris Lennox's rating:

People who added this item 3660  Average listal rating (2482 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.7 
2. Signs (2002)
Life-affirming and inspirational. With a healthy dose of genuine scares and a script so sharp you could cut your finger on it.
Chris Lennox's rating:

People who added this item 2294  Average listal rating (1493 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating 8.2 
3. Life of Brian (1979)
A succession of 10/10 skits strung together (very loosely) on a biting satire on Christianity. What's not to love?
Chris Lennox's rating:

People who added this item 1203  Average listal rating (802 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.2 
4. Escape from New York (1981)
Dark, depressing and brutal. Inspired casting. Anti-heroes don't come more damaged than Snake Plissken. Which is a good thing.
Chris Lennox's rating:

People who added this item 653  Average listal rating (424 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.4 
5. Grosse Pointe Blank (1997)
Sharp, witty and an awesome soundtrack. If you have not yet seen Bowie and Queen soundtracking a cute baby doing it's thing then google it NOW.

People who added this item 1195  Average listal rating (753 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.6 
6. An American Werewolf in London (1981)
Genuinely scary at times but the real joy is the uber-ironic tone and the collection of moon-related tunes perfectly blended into the action.
Chris Lennox's rating:

People who added this item 542  Average listal rating (343 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.4 
7. Monsters (2010)
A total surprise. Tight and taught with an unnerving emotional resonance. As befits and independant movie shot (astonishingly) on a shoe-string, it's not afraid to duck the Hollywood schmalz ending. Unforgettable.
Chris Lennox's rating:

People who added this item 223  Average listal rating (135 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.7 
8. The Way of the Gun (2000)
Two outrageously unappealing people, the most inventive use of profanity ever and some truly original set pieces. It's what every action movie should aspire to be.
Chris Lennox's rating:

People who added this item 37  Average listal rating (17 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.2 
9. The Day the Earth Caught Fire (1961)
Superior sci-fi based on atmosphere and sparkling interplay between the lead characters. Best script the genre has ever produced. Fact. Hasn't aged a day.
Chris Lennox's rating:

People who added this item 1647  Average listal rating (987 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.7 
10. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)
Shane Black writes very funny action scripts for huge amounts of money. When it's his own baby though he takes it to a whole new level. Funny and supremely cool.
