    2. A Clockwork Orange
    3. Pulp Ficiton
    4. Reservoir Dogs

    Have you seen Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke. Well worth checking out. Porco Rosso is neither here nor there.

    Oooh...this is hard. There have been so many good ones over the years. :eek:

    If I had to choose five, I'd probably go with:

    Jurassic Park (first one only)
    Sleepy Hollow ('99 by Tim Burton)
    Big Daddy
    Kill Bill
    Hot Fuzz

    EDIT: 5th movie chosen
    The fifth spot I simply can't decide. It's going to be between several movies:

    12 Angry Men, Rat Race, one of the first 3 Star Wars movies, Jumanji, Scream (first one), ET, Breakfast Club, Unbreakable, and Legally Blonde (I know, total B-movie/chick flick, but I'm justifying it by saying that Reese Witherspoon is talented and there is some good iBook footage in there! :p).

    EDIT: Forgot about Indiana Jones!

    I also liked Air Force One, Erin Brockovich, even if it was based on a true story. :p

    Spirited Away is awesome. I wish I could have watched that when I was little.

    There are some tripped-out parts in that - but its weirdness pales next to "Cat Soup" - wish I could find that one on DVD.

    Too hard to think of a top five but here's some from my collection:
    -Wet Hot American Summer
    -Yellow Submarine
    -Clerks
    -Sex, Lies, and Videotape
    -Igby Goes Down
    -Chasing Amy
    -The Brave Little Toaster (yeah, I own it)
    -Miracle
    -Dead Poet's Society

    And two not for the faint of heart / children / etc. Proceed with caution:
    -The Dreamers
    -Crash (not the recent one...the tagline on the front of the box says "...sex and car crashes"; adapted from the book by jg ballard)

    Yup! I was running through the list of Ghibli films in my head trying to pick one :) they're all fantastic. Totoro was the first anime I ever saw, we missed the final showing on Sky Movies and I thought I'd never see it again :eek: going back about 12 or so years here.

    I've got a sneaking suspicion I'll be getting another Ghibli film or 2 this Christmas.

    Definitely makes you think what really is important. It was hard to watch, but it makes a very good point.

    I don't know if I have a ultimate top 5 list. I tend to have favorite movies in each genre... but here are some of my favorites overall

    1. Maverick (I don't know why I like it so much. It's a very silly movie in almost every aspect)
    2. The Bourne Ultimatum
    3. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    4. The World's Fastest Indian
    5. Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
