Hey! Somebody else had Mars Attacks on their list. Cool. That is a fun movie.

Yeah. One of Tim Burton's best, IMO.

My stupidest mistake was leaving off Fargo. I am kicking my own ass as I type this.

My 25

1. Dark City (1998) – 25 pts - I'm bummed this didn't make it. I adore/admire this flick, more so now that the directors cut is out.
2. Princess Mononoke (1997) – 24 pts
3. American Beauty (1999) – 23 pts
4. Unforgiven (1992) – 22 pts

5. The Three Colors Trilogy (93/94 - If I have to specify one, go with “Three Colors: Red”) – 21 pts - A cinematic masterpiece. That something as brilliant as this is left off and a certain abomination makes the list almost makes me...   :'(
6. The Limey (1999) – 20 pts
7. Groundhog Day (1993) 19 pts
8. Leon: The Professional (1994) – 18 pts
9. Out of Sight – 17 pts

10. Perfect Blue (1999) – 16 pts
11. Raise the Red Lantern (1991) – 15 pts
12. Exotica (1994) – 14 pts - I know the Sweet Hereafter is the most praised Atom Egoyan film, but I've always preferred this knotted tale of obsession, loneliness and desperation
13. Elizabeth (1998) – 13 pts
14. Flirting (1991) – 12 pts
15. The Crying Game (1992) – 11 pts
16. Fearless (1993) – 10 pts
17. Rushmore (1998) – 9 pts
18. The Iron Monkey (1993) – 8 pts
19. The Truman Show (1998) – 7 pts
20. The Usual Suspects (1995) – 6 pts

21. Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999) – 5 pts
22. Galaxy Quest (1999) – 4 pts
23. Iron Giant (1999)– 3 pts
24. Toy Story (1995) – 2 pts
25. MST3K: The Movie (1996)  – 1 pt

2. Chungking Express

Nice list, and I think it's cool that this made it. I put it in my Hon mentions.

Kudos for including Perfect Blue. Its flaws were all really a part of the definition of the Giallo film genre, which it was an homage to. Nevertheless, they kept it off the list for me.

I'll have to check out the DX of Dark City sometime. A long time ago, I found a music synch thing (forget the term) for it that used the Godspeed You! Black Emperor album "Raise Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven." It was basically like the Dark Side of the Moon / Wizard of Oz thing (which incidentally might make Oz worth watching; never tried it). Anyway, I never got around to trying it, and the site I found it on died. If it worked, it should have been really awesome. If only...

Elizabeth is one that made my list until the final cut.  Felt bad about having to leave it out. 

King of New York!!!  Son of a bitch, that one I forgot!  I think of it as an 80s movie.  Should watch it again soon.
I'm all out for kicks...and every inch of me spells EXCITEMENT!

Here's my list:


1 Addams Family Values
8 Quick Change
11 Clueless
15 Grosse Pointe Blank

I applaud all of these. 

Quick Change is highly underrated and one of Bill Murray's best.  Although What About Bob? is probably my fave of his (and a glaring omission from my own list!)

One of these days I'll stop being so late to the conversation. Oh well.

1. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
2. The Big Lebowski (1998)
3. Pulp Fiction (1994)

4. Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) - I guess I can understand this one's ommission, but it's still too bad. Sure it's a trashy, gritty British gangster movie, but... no, wait, those are the pluses. Love this one.
5. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
6. In The Mouth of Madness (1994) - Has Sutter Cane posted his list yet? Because I refuse to believe I'm the only one who picked this.
7. Dark City (1998) - No excuse here. George, you get a high five for putting it so high.
8. Goldeneye (1995) - No love for Best Bond? Ridiculous
9. Leon (1994)
10. Fight Club (1999)

11. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998) - My favorite Gilliam, but considering his other output this decade, I guess I can see this one getting bypassed.
12. Se7en (1995)
13. Three Kings (1999) - Another one that needs more love (and American Beauty getting picked over this just makes me sad).
14. Fargo (1996)
15. Jurassic Park (1993)

16. Casino (1995) - Because I'm that one weirdo who likes this movie more than Goodfellas.
17. Dead Alive (1992) - This board needs more fans of Peter Jackson's earlier, better works.
18. The Fugitive (1993) - Come on people, this is Harrison Ford's last good movie. It needs the respect as such.
19. Event Horizon (1997) - I'm just gonna say I really love this movie and move on.
20. Tremors (1990)
21. Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999) - I'm going to say this was passed because most everyone hasn't seen it.
22. Scream (1996)
23. Heat (1995) - I actually had to go back and double check that this one was omitted, because... really folks? Really? Cool as Ice over this?
24. The Matrix (1999)
25. Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995) - Admittedly put on because I totally spaced on Apollo 13 (heh) and Trainspotting.

Another good list down, one that spelled out the strange, occasionally mistaken movie sensibilities of this board. As all lists ultimately should.

Also, Quick Change really is a grossly underrated film. I realize I didn't put it on my list, but it still needs to be said.

It also has, at least in England, some of the funniest inept ADRing for Television. Putting in Viking for another word that ends in "king" leads to some entertaining sentences, for example.

Replacing "finger" with "flipper" in the Matrix is still my favorite. It doesn't even change the meaning, and what? the word "finger" is offensive?

Goodfellas? More like Sucksfellas.

Would Suckfellas have worked better, but created an entirely different insult in the process? I'm actually curious, I'm never good at that sort of thing.
