Honerable Mention: "Snatch", "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels","Se7en", "Unforgiven", "Silence of the Lambs"
- 10. GoodFellas
Best gangster film in the post-Godfather era
- 9. The Matrix
Intense and thought provoking
- 8. Glengary Glen Ross
Al Pacino+Jack Lemmon+Ed Harris+Kevin Spacey=Intense
- 7. Clerks
One of the most important indie films ever, established Kevin Smith as one of the best new comedy writers
- 6. Titus
The standard for non-classical Shakespeare movies. It kept the dialogue true, but experimented with sets, props, and costumes. One of Anthony Hopkins' most underrated performances
- 5. Reservoir Dogs
- 4. Hard Boiled
The ultimate action movie: guns, guns, Chow Yun Fat, John Woo, guns and guns. I'd like to see any director aside from Woo top the 20min gunfight in the hospital
- 3. Fight Club
A movie with a message: Be Yourself
- 2. Episode I: The Phantom Menace
Sure, it wasn't as great as the classic trilogy but it signaled the return of an epic saga
- 1. Pulp Fiction
It made Tarantino a household name, reinvented cool, redefined Travolta, and made Samuel L. Jackson the badest mother ****er on the planet
By: Jordan McBroom
there are quite a few more that should be on there that there just isnt room for.... LA Confidential, Pulp Fiction, Payback , Schindler's list, they should probably take the places of memento and usual suspects but i love the clever telling of the stories and i believe they do more with less, but hey its just my opinion :)
- 10. Memento
Very clever way of telling the story, and what a story it is!
- 9. Forest Gump/ Saving Private Ryan
Cant decide between the two and memento has to be on there so let me just say they are both equally powerful and awe-inspiring in different ways. Just wow!
- 8. Usual Suspects
Fantastic story with great twists, once again a great performance by spacey and the others.
- 7. Clerks
hahahahahahahahaha!!!!! The funniest movie i have ever seen, and will most likely ever see.
- 6. The Matrix
I love the cool effects and great story. Keanu gives a surprisingly good perfomace, and its just a great movie.
- 5. Se7en
How disturbing was this one? But I like disturbing and movies that make you think if u havent figured that out :) great performance by Pitt
- 4. Shawshank Redemption
Great story; deep and inspirational.
- 3. Braveheart
Just a great movie, tells a great tale. Great acting/directing by Gibson, and what cool battle scenes!
- 2. American Beauty
Wow what a great performance by Spacey! Great depth and, yet again, this one makes you think about your life. Fantastic.
- 1. Fight Club
Its analasis of america's materialistic society and the effect on the common man is fantasic. A must see, really makes you think about your life and the crap you buy.
In case you are wondering, I do like comedies, but they lack the real power to move you. This is my dark-side top ten movies.
- 10. Running out of Time
This is a Hong Kong movie. If you like the above movies, you'll like this one.

Vin Diesel's best role yet.
- 8. Primal Fear
See Edward Norton from Movie #2
- 7. Seven
Screen play is flawless. See Kevin Spacey from Movie #6.

Kevin Spacey is the ultimate unexpected everyday-Joe antagonist.
- 5. Silence of the Lambs
Anthony Hopkins is the freakiest face I've ever seen.
- 4. Pulp Fiction
Need I say more?
- 3. Boondock Saints
The best movie no one has ever heard of.

Edward Norton is the best actor of our generation. Brad Pitt is the best psycho actor of our generation
- 1. Leon: The Professional
Jean Reno - the ultimate hitman. Natalie Portman - the hottest 12 year old I've ever seen.

Great film. I reckon its one of the most influencial movies ever.
- 9. Stigmata
now this film changed my life. Im a catholic, and I always had faith in god, but Stigmata made me a devoted catholic. I go to church every week now he he
- 8. Oceans Ten
Its entertaining, and I had a great time watching it. Its prolly the only Geroge Clooney movie thats worth watching. But Brad as usual stole the spotlight.
- 7. The Score
Well, wadda u know. Its Ed Norton again. I guess this list leaves very little doubt about who my fav actor is. but I like teh fact that the director cuts the bull and let the pros do their acting. I think ed lookd great in those square rimmed shades. I bet Oakley Square wire will fit his face like a condom.
- 6. Pulp Fiction
This movie was wicked. Nothing like I've ever seen, and I must say it will be a timeless classic
- 5. A River runs through it
Boy wasnt this drama or what. I saw the movie in B&W, and really really got the best outta it. I thought Brads life in the story was beautiful, and it shows some fantastic scenes from Montana
- 4. People Vs Larry Flynt
Ed Norton was as usual doing his very best, and Courtney Love was outta the world. Woody HArreldson was insane and totally wicked! I loved this film. The moment when he breaks the bathroom door to see her drowned in the tub was one of the most powerful moments I've ever seen
- 3. The Insider
Who would have ever believed that the Rompre Stomper guy and Bud White can play a ratehr paranoid middle aged tobacco scientist to perfection. I loved the shear display of professionalism with the characters in this film.
- 2. American History X
This movie made a permenant dent on my head. Speak of intensity. I love the way Ed Norton can generate so much intensity with his words. This movie is fabulous
- 1. Fight Club
More than the fighting, its the cultural violence, Tylers vision of the world, and his doctrines that makes this movie so disturbing. "advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy sh** we dont need" Edward norton really showed the world why hes such a versatile performer.This movie is yet to find its time. Give it 20 years, and it will achieve the cult status that Blade Runner achieved. Read the book please, I've read all ov Chuck Palahniuks novels.
- 10. Beautiful
