@glitterbag,
The fun part is trying to narrow it down to just 10. Smile

It's very possible that I could end up modifying or making changes to my list.
Then the fun would be trying to determine which movie or movies to delete from list to make room. Smile

@Real Music,
Alien
12 Angry Men
Die Hard
Shawshank Redemption
Terminator 2 (although I was hard pressed not to put 1 here).
Notting Hill
The Usual Suspects
Full Metal Jacket
Hero
Groundhog Day(Bill Murray has me ins stitches every time. I find the rest of the cast pretty lackluster, but he really brings the movie home for me).

@farmerman,
You are aware that list has eleven movies on it right? Not counting Shaka that is. Tssk... Also, I have never even heard of the Three burials of Melquiedas Estrada. Sounds very interesting, judging by the title alone.

@farmerman,
Your list does contain 11 movies.

If you had to reduce your list down to 10 movies, which movie would you remove from your list?

This is challenging for me — not narrowing it down to ten but just trying to think of that many movies which I actually liked, let alone classify as a "favorite".

This is Spinal Tap
The Man with the Golden Arm
Mon Oncle
Hell Drivers
Das Boot
Babette's Feast
The Killing (1956)
Life of Brian
Big Deal on Madonna Street
Rififi

@najmelliw,
OOPS, Id sadly remove Jurassic Prk I. It was a fav of mine but it isnt one of what Id call a GREAT movie. CGI and special effects dont drive a movie's greatness, they hould fit in as an ingredient and not be the whole fuckin point of the flick.

@Real Music,
Haven't had a chance to ponder this question. I ditched my top 100 favorite films of all time list awhile back because it was a tad out of date. Haven't taken the opportunity to update it.

I'll just drop a preliminary top 10 here until my official list has been thoroughly investigated and birthed at a later undetermined date.

Until then? a2k will have to hold its collective breaths.
