    I've never seen a single 'Harry Potter' film, though I do love 'The Dark Knight,' 'Lethal Weapon,' and 'Aliens.'

    Nothing else existed to the man, apparently. He didn't know what 'films' were until he saw those four, and nothing else.

    I don't buy it. I don't believe you find four films as your absolute favorites, and literally everything else you've ever seen is somehow garbage.

    Fantastic list. Everyone should watch Citizen Kane for the great message alone, and are you referring to The Big Sleep with Bogie or Mitchum?

    Films have taken dark turns ever since they came into existence; it isn't anything new.

    Bogart, its a movie i can just sit and watch and quite happily sink into that world. I think its a masterpiece.

    Two other films that get honorable mention, The 9th gate and Chinatown.

    @PanchitoPistoles, love the last two, very ashamed to say I haven't seen the former three. I always debate watching 'Mulholland Drive' when I see it on Netflix Instant, but never do. I suppose I'll have to give it a try.

    I have tried to watch Mulholland Drive but it just comes off as a trippy mess. Maybe another time.

    Branching off the 'Five Favorite Bond Films' topic, this one is simple: list your favorite film, along with anything else you care to share about it.

    My favorite film: 'Munich', 2005, directed by Steven Spielberg. Starring Eric Bana, Daniel Craig, Ciaran Hinds, Mathieu Kassovitz, Geoffrey Rush, Michael Lonsdale, and Mathieu Amalric. It was nominated for five Oscars.

    Plot: Based on the true story of the Black September Aftermath at the 1972 Munich Olympics, the movie follows the five men responsible for killing those responsible for that fateful day in Munich, Germany.

    I can't even begin to describe why I love this film, or I will never get it posted. It will be an entire novel by the time I'm through with it. Simply: it's rich. It's deep. It gives one of the best narratives I have ever seen, you get very involved with the characters, their pasts, you learn about them and soon love them. It's based on a true story, and after doing massive upon massive amounts of research for a paper on the 1972 Munich Incident in college, I slowly learned that this movie does heavily follow the real life events to a certain, film-capable degree. They all give amazing performances, the action is very realistic and gritty, and it's a heavy recommendation to anyone who enjoys a good, historic drama.

    Also, something you guys might appreciate that I did, as well. Maybe you noticed from the cast list, but this film has a pre-Bond Craig (who accepted the role just weeks after wrapping up this film), a pre-Bond Amalric (Dominic Greene in QoS), and a post-Bond Lonsdale (Drax in Moonraker, who ironically plays Amalric's father).

    Seems good never seen it before I like comedy where may I watch it? Might find it on DVD somewhere have about every DVD ever.

    Lovely to see Harry Brown on there. I like that film very much.

    Munich is great; a real thinking film that stays with you long after the credits roll.

    @0BradyM0Bondfanatic7, I agree: 'Harry Brown' was quite the film. Michael Caine still kicking ass and getting revenge well into his 80's.

    I trust we are not including Bond here, if so, DAF would rank #1 as my favourite film of all time, with the other Bonds all tucked in behind it.
    So no Bonds on this list, and I will only include one film from any obvious film series, including the Clint Eastwood westerns, otherwise the list would be dominated by Bond and Eastwood films. Not so much by Apes though. The Apes sequels IMO don't cut top film-lists inclusion, even if the original was one of the greatest films ever made.

    1. Planet of the Apes (original)
    2. The Godfather
    3. High Plains Drifter, Clint Eastwood
    4. Dirty Harry, Eastwood
    5. The Mechanic, Charles Bronson

    Very interesting to see The Hot Rock listed two posts above. This Robert Redford/George Segal caper film isn't likely to make many lists, but it sure was a hugely entertaining film. It would probably make my top ten.

    1. Singing in the Rain

    3. City Lights
    4. Guns of Navarone
    5. From Russia With Love

    The Godfather is what I sincerely consider to be the best film ever made. Flawless film.
    2001 is second.
    Chinatown is in my top five, too. I feel that its underrated now: it got critical acclaim and everyone I know who's seen it has called it one of the best movies of all time, but its kind of been forgotten over time, hasn't it?
    Also, even though it's not currently my #1 Bond film, as a quality piece of cinema Casino Royale is the only Bond film that I believe is in my top twenty. From an objective viewpoint, it's head and shoulders above the other Bond films in that regard. Bond films aren't like other films: CR is the exception.
    And how can I forget Traffic, rounding off my top three.
    Also, I would imagine Kubrick and Kurosawa have at least three films apiece in my top twenty.

    1. Skyfall (2012)
    2. Ted (2012)
    3. Paul (2011)
    4. Escape to Victory (1981)
    5. The Italian Job (1969)/ The Thomas Crown affair (1999)

    Hard to chose between them last 2 but it would be TTCA because it has Brosnan in it.
