What are you top 5 movies of all time?



  • This is pretty definitive (except for the last one), in descending order:

    Back to the Future
    Blade Runner
    Speed Racer (2008)
    Reservoir Dogs
    Wall-E

    I have a pretty narrow interest on movies, so this was pretty easy to think about. I've been lazy with my moviegoing experiences in the recent years so I need to catch up, been missing out on a lot of cool-looking stuff especially in the last decade.



  • @sheria said in What are you top 5 movies of all time?:

    I'll try a top 10, but it's stillso hard... In no particular order though:

    Fracture
    Seven
    While you were Sleeping
    Sliding Doors
    American Psycho
    The Ring
    Watership Down
    Braveheart
    Notting Hill
    Thelma & Louise

    Just watch John wick movies. some of the most badass movies ever made.

  • Holy shit how did I forget Lord of the Rings!?



  • Honest to god, this is impossible. These are mostly movies that I re-watch the most. I can't even rank my Top 5 Rocky films let alone all films I've ever seen. This is a pretty loosey goosey list because I really don't have a definitive list tbh.

    1. The Big Lebowski

    Youtube Video

    1. The Raid Redemption / The Raid 2

    Youtube Video

    1. Mandy

    Youtube Video

    1. The Godfather / Goodfellas / Reservoir Dogs / Casino (I'm Italian... any classic Italian crime film or one with Italian actors...)

    Youtube Video

    1. Rocky

    Youtube Video

    I think the only one I can safely say is my #1 is Rocky and pretty much the whole franchise. This is the movie / series that is always there for any need any time of the day any point in my life.

    Rocky IV will never let you down. NEVER!

    HMs

    • The Matrix (probably also in the top 5)
    • Spy Kids
    • The Audition
    • Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom
    • Fitzcarraldo

    • La Note / L'Avventura / L'Eclisse
    • Porco Rosso
    • Hercules (Disney, 1997)
    • Fast & Furious 4
    • Her
    • Star Wars Ep IV
    • First Blood / Rambo 4

    I know I've gone excessive, but I can have a top 5 Hollywood, top 5 Italy, top 5 Japan...



  • The Matrix is far and away my favorite movie of all time ever.

    After that, in no particular order:

    Melancholia
    Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    Interstellar
    Event Horizon

    Aliens
    Mad Max Fury Road
    Kingsman Secret Service
    Baby Driver

    The Exorcist
    Logan
    The Incredibles
    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows part 1
    T2 Judgement Day
    Ghostbusters (1984)
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)
    1408

    Probably missing a huge amount. I likes myself some movies



  • @dipset I remember people saying the Raid 2 was the best action movie ever. I vastly preferred the first. Do you have a preference?



  • @dipset said in What are you top 5 movies of all time?:

    • Fitzcarraldo

    nods approvingly



  • Boo to the people who can't keep their lists at five. Of course we all have more favourites than that, but the whole point here was to try and pick your five sweetest.



  • @sentinel-beach So do I get bonus points for just having 1?

    Kinda strange you mention Matrix as best movie ever (and its also one of my fav too. the original one) but no mention of John wick?

    John wick is far better and more complex character than Neo. i mean keannu reeves shine more as John wick. maybe because he was kid back than, and now he is very experienced actor.



  • I thought of these five:

    Zodiac
    Summer Interlude
    The Double Life of Veronique
    How Green Was My Valley
    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon



  • @b-cell I personally find that, outside of the absolutely incredible action scenes, there isn't much else to the John Wick movies.



  • @e_zed_eh_intern

    While I wholeheartedly appreciate the accuracy of the tagline for The Raid 1 "1 minute of romance. 90 minutes of non stop carnage", I really like how The Raid 2 has possibly one of the best action film plots in recent years. Like since when do people actually care about the twists and turns in an action film? The Raid 2 nailed the drama AND the action. I love them both for different reasons. Some of the action scenes in The Raid 2 looks cheesier on repeated watches. The hallway scene with the baseball bat and hammer looks a bit cheaper than the other scenes when watched with a close eye. I'll pick The Raid 1 > the Raid 2.

    @Sentinel-Beach

    Alright, I'll make hard choices: 5. The Big Lebowski 4. The Raid Redemption 3. Mandy 2. The Godfather 1. Rocky



  • Just the ones that always come to mind...

    Pulp Fiction
    Clerks
    The Warriors
    Avengers IW & Endgame (or just the whole MCU honestly)
    The Shinning

    I like a fairly wide variety of movies, so posting only my top five would be a poor reflection of my tastes. Top five is more useful for specific genres.



  • I watch 300ish movies a year. Asking me pick a top 5 is actual cruelty.



  • @irongrey said in What are you top 5 movies of all time?:

    I thought of these five:

    Zodiac
    Summer Interlude
    The Double Life of Veronique
    How Green Was My Valley
    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

    I like this list

    Five that came to my mind:

    -Not on the Lips
    -The Profound Desires of the Gods
    -The Smiling Madame Beudet
    -Distant Voices, Still Lives
    -The Shop Around the Corner

    There's a few dozen more where these came from. Not sure if some of these are even my favorites from their respective director, but they just popped into my mind so there.
