In yet another discussion I had with one of my close friends, and somewhat of a follow-up to the Top 5 Rock Albums of all time, we talked about what our top 5 movies of all time were. The Godfather I and II are not included because they are easily the best movies ever... so here are my Top 5 movies of all time (with the exception of the Godfather I and II):

1. The Big Lebowski
2. Pulp Fiction
3. Reservoir Dogs
4. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
5. The Boondock Saints

Honorable mentions : From Russia with Love, Rambo: 1st Blood pt 1, Rocky, Star Wars IV V VI, The Great Escape, Clerks, Casino, Good Fellas, Raging Bull, and Indiana Jones (Except Kingdom of the Crystal Skull)

I don't have a standing top five, but we have some similar tastes. Big Lebowski would definitely be in there. Clerks would be considered. Ditto Reservoir Dogs.

One lock: Magnolia. Unbelievably beautiful and awesome film. Go ahead. Judge me.

have heard good things about "Boondock Saints"...will eventually get around to it...isn't "Magnolia" where it's raining frogs at the end(which I found out, has actually happened before).....I'll go same director...something Anderson(too lazy to look it up now)..."Boogie Nights"....excellent film, and not just because of the porn...

I agree Magnolia is an amazing film with an amazing soundtrack.

Hitchcocks Rear Window is my all time favorite.

Rear Window is a great choice MG.

Another classic that is a favorite of mine is Casablanca.

Hitchcocks Rear Window is my all time favorite.

What a wonderful movie. I absolutely love it. It edges Rope off the top of my favorite Hitchcock movies by the presence of Grace Kelly, who is probably the most beautiful woman who ever lived.

speaking of movies...the fact that "Shakespeare in Love" won best picture over "Saving Private Ryan"...might be biggest screwjob of all time...also "Cinderella Man" way under rated

Rope is a top Hitchcock flick, I love the pace of that film but the acting is a little weak. Notorious is a close second, another flawless Hitchcock film.

If I ever had to describe the perfect women it would start and end with Grace Kelly.

I was surprised at how much I liked Midnight in the Garden of Good/Evil.

I'll give a shout out to another of my favorite classics: To Kill a Mockingbird.


And for something a little different, my favorite Zombie movie: Shaun of The Dead.

Seven
Backdraft
Legends of the Fall
Last of the Mohicans
Slapshot
Roadhouse

I've never been a big fan of saving private ryan either. I can still remember watching it with my grandfather, a WWII vet from the 101st, and he laughed through half the movie and then proceeded to call it " rah rah patriotic bullshit" and I remember he thought it was incredibly unrealistic.
