Without Brokeback...it's in a class by itself.


1.  Goodfellas
2.  Rear Window
3.  Philadelphia
4.  Ghost
5.  The Sixth Sense

I've only seen 2 of those films.......and I'll give you one guess as to the 2 that I have seen....LOL




Ok, I'll bite.

Philadelphia and Ghost?Huh?

Close......Ghost and The Sixth Sense (who hasn't seen that) LOL

I'm gonna cheat a tad like Deedee did, because Brokeback is in a class by itself for me, too.

After that, my next top five, in no particular order:

The Shawshank Redemption
Casablanca
The Wedding Banquet
Fargo
High Noon

BBM of course.

Lone Star (favorite, perfect movie ever til BBM, and not dissimilar, would make a heck of a double feature)

Well, I just went and had a nice meander through various IMDb movie lists, and came up with these.  Too hard to narrow it to five.  Wouldn't be fair to the other movies.

The Player
Parenthood
Grand Canyon
Pane e tulipani (Bread and Tulips)
The Anniversary Party
Desk Set
Ocean's Eleven (2001)
The Jungle Book
American Beauty
Monsoon Wedding
Get Shorty
Crimes and Misdemeanors
Groundhog Day
The Straight Story
Lost in Translation

Barry Lyndon
Glad to see Barry Lyndon here; a full top-100 from me would definitely include it. It's my favorite Stanley Kubrick movie, and may well be the single most beautiful period film ever made.

Cheers,
Scott
