My favs in no particular order:

- Donnie Darko

- Signs of Life (Best "going crazy" scene ever. Herzog is a genius sometimes. If you can find it, i'd highly recommend this film)

- True Romance

- Scarface

- The umm....English Patient...<cough> (thought i'd squeeze it between two mob movies so i didn't seem like too much of a wuss).

- Goodfellas

- Carlitos Way

- Truman Show

- Annie Hall (still in love with annie)

- Thin Red Line (Best War movie ever)

- After Hours (Best comedy ever)

- Shawshank Redemption

- Lord of the Rings movies...Peter Jackson is a genius

- The first three Star Wars films...although George Lucas is pretty much destroying those ones for me now what with his unrelenting crusade to destroy all things good.

And the greatest film of all time...i saw it three nights in a row at the Kingsway theatre in Toronto, and cried my eyes out like a little girl each time...

Welcome to the Dollhouse, a classic. I can't believe someone besides me has seen that. That's one of me and my best friends favorite movies. Another good movie is "Whatever." It's kind of hard to find but it's good. Oh, I have one, "Friday". I saw that probably 30 times between the ages of 15-18. All 80's teen movies are good, and 80's horror movies.
I was going to try and be trendy and mention some french black and white art films, but no. My top ten favourite films, so far (and after much discussion and arguing with my friends), are:

1.) Alien/s
2.) Heat
3.) Fight Club
4.) Full Metal Jacket
5.) Requiem for a Dream
6.) The Hours
7.) City of God
8.) Leon
9.) Evil Dead 2
10.) Bram Stokers Dracula
Oh, some movies that I forgot to add in my original list, but which are also my favourites (the director after the title of the movie):

The Terminator - James Cameron
Terminator 2: Judgment Day - James Cameron
Twister - Jan de Bont

When I went to watch Twister with my littlesister in one cinema of town Lappeenranta (oh no, in 1996 - almost 10 years ago!) we both were SURE that we are going to become meteorogists in the future and WILL experience some tornadoes LIVE someday! The bicycle trip to home after the cinema was such an experience, the movie made it magical! :D Well, both me and my littlesister have always been interested in weather phenomena - especially storms - so no wonder we loved Twister!
