I know it's supposed to be five, but there's too many:

The Third Man (surely the best theme tune)

Underground (Emir Kusturica).

Delicatessen

Apocalypse now

Ice cold in Alex

Shawshank Redemption

Black Cat White Cat (Kusturica again!)

Brighton Rock (Graham Greene again)

Deer Hunter (up until the last bit when they were all sat round the table singing - that was crap).

Pulp Fiction (natch).

Where Eagles Dare (one for RichM).

2001 A space odyssey (the Blue Danube bit was a cinema classic).

The longest day

Chocolate (if only for the bit where Juliette Binoche is on her knees scrubbing the step - phwoar!).

Oh and Crouching Tiger is on at the moment - a beautiful film.

That'll do for now :)

Good choice TW11 ;)

Charlie - why no Albert RN? :D

As for me, well, it's tricky, isn't it?

1) Aliens - yes, I know it's not Alien, but still fantastic. The effects are way ahead of their time. If only they had made no more Alien films after this one...

2) The Seven Samurai - sheer genius. Loved it. The all-time greatest action movie. Ever.

3) Where Eagles Dare - for Boys' Own WWII Nazi Spy cable car adventure yomps, they don't get any better. And that soundtrack. Spine-tingling.

4) Airplane - always cheers me up

5) The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - needs no introduction

Other standout favourites - Stalingrad; Dawn of the Dead (both versions); Sleuth is good fun; Godfathers 1 & 2; Goodfellas; Get Carter (not the US version of course); Day of the Jackal; Apocalypse Now; The Vikings; Alfie left a big impression (NOT the Jude Law version); Unusual Suspects.

Oh, and I agree that Delicatessen was very good, but haven't seen it for years; would love to again.

Cyrano de Bergerac and The Thing were very good too.

American Pyscho is brilliant and hilarious...and I am a woman. But most of my female freinds don't watch the movies I do anyway. Besides Christian Bale is an excellent British actor and kinda nice to look at aswell

:)

Especially now as the new Batman. All that leather, the mask and the car :o
