    StarWars 4, 5, 6,
    Indiana Jones 1
    Lord of the Rings 1, 2, 3
    The Godfather 1, 2
    The Sixth Sense

    But don't forget these great movies either
    The blues brothers
    God Father 3 (you might as well throw it in just to complete the set.)
    Batman Begins
    Indiana Jones 2, 3
    X-men 1, 2
    Gladiator
    The Shawshank Redemption
    Goonies
    Aliens 1, 2
    Casablanca
    The magnificent 7
    2001 space odyssey
    Superman 1, 2 (the rest are crap)
    Fight Club
    So I married an Axe Murderer
    Tommy Boy
    Bourne Identity and Supremacy

    (If you know this one you don't need me to tell you how cool you are.)
    Rad
    Gleaming the Cube
    Thrashin'
    Breakin' two, electric bugaloo
    Lock Stock and 2 smoking barrels
    Trinity
    Trinity is still my name

    I'm really suprized no one has disagreed with my top ten list. I mean yeah, they are the best movies of all time, but usually someone thinks of some movie that should replace one of mine.
    And 1992corolla, the last unicorn???!! Dude that movie gave me the creeps when I was a kid. You might as well throw in "Something Wicked This Way Comes"

    Uh, yes "donkeywhisperer (???)" there are MUCH MUCH better movies than Lord of the Rings and Sixth Sense. Frankly I never thought much of the first two LOTR movies (way too boring) and Sixth Sense (great ending though). If you're interested in foreign films, then there's about 500 films worth seeing and more powerful than the ones you mentioned, and if you wanna stick to American movies, check out the stuff from 1970s, where nearly all the major films that came out were masterpieces: Chinatown, Last Picture Show, Last Tango in Paris, The Conformist, ANY john cassavetes movie, Cries and Whispers (ALL Ingmar Bergman), Days of Heaven, Aguirre: Wrath of God, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation...

    And on and on. Sorry this post was so long, its just that recently everyone thinks that the top ten or 20 greatest movies of all time came post-2000, whereas cinema has a 100 year + history.

    Wow. This guy really took me seriously.
    Well Stroszeck thanks for the post, and for listing some movies that you thought were good. I'm still sticking to my top ten. I know that Starwars didn't have the best acting or writing, but for me it's in the top ten cause no other movie had more of an effect on my imagination as a kid. There are other similar sentimental reasons for the rest of the movies on my top ten list.
    I was disappointed that you only mentioned a few foreign films worth seeing. I haven't seen all that many, but here are some that I thought were really good: Ameli, Life is Beautiful, Babbet's Feast, Jean de Florett, Manon de Sources, Crouching Tiger, The Seven Samurai, The Red Balloon :sleep: ,and Waking Ned Divine (I think that one is foreign).
    Now, when it comes to the 70's I'm not a big fan of a lot of the movies that came out during that time. Movies like Apocalypse Now, Taxi driver, and Rosemary's Baby are just a little too depressing for me. I realize that the cinematography, acting, and writing are all very good and that they are films worth seeing, but I don't ever just pop in one flew over the cuckoo's nest just for the hell of it. There are some 70's films that I really do like, like Marathon Man, Papillon, A Man Called Horse,.... Here are some good 60's films too: The Great Escape, The Guns of Navarone, To Kill a Mockingbird
    In conclusion I don't think it's fair to imply that someone is an uncultured swine just because they prefer more recent movies. :)
    But please list more good movies. You sound like you have good taste in films, and there were a few that you listed that I haven't seen, but now I want to rent i.e. Chinatown, Wrath of God.

    I still gotta see million dollar baby, but I'd recommend "Unforgiven", and "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly"

    BTW, the last starfighter was awesome!

    I'm surprised nobody mentioned The Dentist. Now that is a classic movie. I think there are sequels as well but I haven't seen those.

    If you haven't seen it, I recommend you definitely take a look. :love:

    OH CRAP! I think it finally happened...The bs stress about this crappy admissions process :eek: . Yeah, I actually did take you seriously donkeywhisperer, and I honest didn't mean to dismiss you.

    Anyway, yeah, Chinatown is a pretty damn good movie, and Aguirre Wrath of God has probably one of the craziest, most bizarre and yet strangely enough poetic endings of all time. Seriously.

    Since I talked crap about post-2000 or recent movies, here are some that you'll love:

    The Son - (directed by Dardenne bros.) Its a really emotionally charged film, but NOT for all tastes. Try reading Roger Ebert's review on this one.

    Owning Mahowny - One of Philip Seymour Hoffman's BEST UNDERRATED movies, about a compulsive gambler.

    George Washington - If you liked Days of Heaven, then SEE this. Its about a bunch of kids and adolescents hanging out in the South and a deadly accident that ends up happening. This is one of the most beautiful films I've seen in recent times. Really, the cinematography and the naturalistic acting/unique dialogue is pretty cool.

    I think some other people already mentioned the following, equally brilliant and entertaining movies: Adaptation, CIty of God.

    OH, and here's a really cool favorite from England (of all places) I just remembered... from late 70s but considered to be THE CRIME film of that time:
    THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY. This one absolutely KICKS ASS, but they speak in cockney accents so you might not understand every word.

    I'd play family type movies (to create the family atmosphere)

    like a disney animation or something

    Or, a dentist related movie, like the whole nine yards

    Or, an instructional film on dentistry,

    Or, an xbox 360, or the latest console! that's my idea! DON'T STEAL IT!


    i'd also have a coffee machine, duh! and the room walls will be sky blue, with white clouds on the top :)

    Tiled floor would be great - carpet wears, and looks old and trashy in the long term.

    well, i hope i get an acceptance so this is possible

    Handing out candy and pushing the use of honey as tooth paste wouldn't hurt the bottom line.
    Fargo and Slapshot over and over and over!!!!!! And Top Gun, because Gun is almost spelled the same as Gum.
