    Interesting lists.

    This is what I have on my myspace page, but its just what came to mind when I was typing that stuff in.

    -------------------------------------
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
    Serenity,
    V for Vendetta,
    Anchor Man,
    The Usual Suspects,
    Dark City,
    Gattaca,
    -------------------------------------

    After reading some of the lists, Bladerunner, Princess Bride and L.A. Confidential probably belong in that list too but its been years since I've watched those. Anchor Man probably does not belong in an "all time favorites" list of mine, but it was a good movie that made me laugh a lot more than most comedies.

    I'd have a heard time calling these ones all time favorites, but stuff that I think deserves to be watched at least once if you like the genre its from (a sort of top 10 of "try it, it might surprise you" stuff ).

    Time Bandits
    Spaceballs
    Running Man
    Robo Cop
    Batman (the first Tim Burton Batman movie)
    Daredevil (yes, I really did like that one!)
    Darkman
    Judge Dread
    Demolition Man
    The Island

    That is very good taste for 1980-present. It seems that you have a particular affinity for movies set in dystopian near-futures.

    Umm a lot of the movies I like are fairly mainstream but I find simplicity often works wonders.

    The Shawshank Redemption- A classic, great storytelling.
    Forrest Gump- I love how it's just a story about what a guy does.
    Zoolander- I find this movie hilarious, it seems to get better every time I see it.
    Groundhog Day- This movie is my pick for most inspirational, I love the whole live life to the fullest message.
    The Empire Strikes Back- The best Star Wars movie in my eyes, perfect blend of action and characterisation.
    Indianna Jones and the Last Crusade- Both Harrison Ford and Sean Connery are in top form on this one, great story also.
    Rear Window- Extremely clever, Only 1 set but it maintains your attention for the whole film.
    Don't Look Back- Great portrait of Bob Dylan, you can't help but love his acerbic wit.
    Dirty Harry- Scorpio gets my vote for best movie villian ever, why the actor who played him didn't win an academy award is beyond me, his performance is chilling.
    The Fugitive- Extremely simple, yet fantastic chase story it's great how it reveals a bit at a time. Harrison Ford and Tommy-Lee Jones are fantastic in this film.
    Good Dog Nigel

    Arf, arf, he goes, a merry sight,
    Our little hairy friend,
    Arf, arf, upon the lampost bright
    Arfing round the bend.
    Nice dog! Goo boy,
    Waggie tail and beg,
    Clever Nigel, jump for joy
    Because we're putting you to sleep at three of the clock, Nigel. -John Lennon

    Stright from IMDB:

    An American nurse living and working in Tokyo is exposed to a mysterious supernatural curse, one that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming their life and spreading to another victim.

    I don't want to spoil the movie for you so I will only say this. If I were the lead in that movie it would have ended in about ten minutes. All I would have needed were a few sticks of dynamite.

    YES! YES! How could I have forgotten to mention "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"!?!?!?!?! Incredible film.....

    And I should have added "A Scanner Darkly"... very nice adaptation of Philip K. Dick...
