    Pulp Fiction is my #1 movie. I've probably watched it 20 times.

    5. Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    Man this is tough... Let's try. Would be way easier going by genre!

    1) The Godfather Pt. II
    2) E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
    3) Terminator 2: Judgement Day
    4) A Bronx Tale
    5) A Clockwork Orange

    There's too many favorites, I could probably make a top 20 easy. I chose those as my top five, because I can never turn them off once they're on...it's impossible.
  • mattiashmattiash Posts: 36Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    Impossible to answer.

    My top 5 can change at any time. ;)

    But movies that are worth the top 5: Pulp Fiction, Pans Labyrinth, La cité des enfants perdus (The lost childrens city), Happiness, The hurt locker, Lars and the real girl, Naked and a few more… :)

  • LardnapkinLardnapkin Posts: 118Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    My Favorite Movies. tough choice to pick the top 5. but here goes:

    1. Heat   (1995)  Michael Mann is a genius director

    2. The Thin Red Line (1998) 

    3. The Big Lebowski (1998)  Coen brothers humor is 2nd to none

    4. Se7en (1995)

    5. Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels (1998). Guy Richie, while having a lousy taste in women can sure make a great flick

    I could list over 50 strong favorites, My movie collection is about 1500 strong and contains a full 360 degree span of genres....

    Out there somewhere is a guy who has faced and overcome the exact problem that is weighing on you right now. Search, Ask and take the time to overcome your challenge all you need to invest is patience and time.

    This is a toughie as my most watched movie is not what I would call the best. For me the best is what keeps me thinking about it long after i have watched it whereas the most most watched is just a movie that gives me instant pleasure for 2-3 hours.

    anyway here goes...track em down if you can as you will be handsomely rewarded.

    1. Ex Drummer (Belgium)

    2. The Bothersome Man (Norway)

    3. Its all gone Pete Tong (UK)

    4. The Deep (Iceland)

    5. Cafe de Flore (Canada)

  • patrickt333patrickt333 Posts: 10Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    Off the top of my head...

    1. Star Wars

    2. Shawshank redemption

    3. Pulp Fiction

    4. Matrix

    5. Bull Durham

    But I agree with the previous poster, that's subject to change in 10 minutes.

    That's not a top 5 though... is there a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th place?

    It all goes fuzzy for me after that. Lots of great movies, but hard to order 2nd - 5th.

    Personally I'm not a devout Tarantino disciple. He's a great screenwriter and director, and I like his ****-movie-to-end-all-****-movies Inglorious Basterds most from his filmography, but they're a bit too violent and vulgar for my taste, and the constant citations/imitations of all the foreign films that he watches are a bit too much. He is a master director though, definitely. And a writer-director. Not many directors write their own material.

    Forrest Gump

    Shawshank Redemption

    Fight Club

    American Beauty

    The Green Mile

    I have a soft spot for Top Gun that I don't like to admit :) Must have watched it 10 000 times as a child.
