Your Top 5 Movies


Bucki1968

Recommended Posts

So, me and boys are sitting around Sunday after we played all of 9 holes (weather) and having some beverages and got into a heated conversation about the best movies of all time. After about an hour of back and forth we agreed on the following movies being top 5 of all time:

1. Shawshank Redemption

2. Fight Club

3. The Empire Strikes Back

 

We could not agree on anymore. These come from a group (this week) of 6 ranging in age from 29-59. Probably why we couldn't agree on any others.

Would love to hear from anyone else who has an opinion. Maybe you can come up with some we just couldn't remember?

My top 5 would be these

1. Lord of the Rings Trilogy (I consider this one long movie split into 3 parts)

2. Saving Private Ryan

3. The Big Lebowski

4/5. Pulp Fiction / Lost in Translation (

Spots 4 and 5 are negotiable and could really be filled by any of my favorite films depending on my mood.

  • Boogie Nights
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
  • Spinal Tap
  • Fargo
  • No Country for Old Men
  • Godfather
  • Good Fellas
  • Empire Strikes Back
  • My Neighbor Totoro
  • Spirited Away
  • Bridesmaids
  • Superbad
  • Pan's Labyrinth
  • Silence of the Lambs
  • Full Metal Jacket
  • Apocalypse Now

The more I think about it and look at the movies I own, the more I come up with. I should probably stop.

I'm a bit of geek when it comes to mafia stuff, but I think Godfather has to be in any top 5.

I'd have a tough time arguing with anyone including Shawshank Redemption. 

One of my personal favorites that I think ought to be mentioned if not actually a top five is Raiders of The Lost Ark.

  • iacas changed the title to Your Top 5 Movies

I have two top fives here. My Non-Guilty Pleasure Top Five... and My Guilty Pleasure Top Five. The latter list are my five favorite movies to watch when my internet goes down 😄

 

My Top Five:

1) Shawshank

2) Back to the Future

3) Jurassic Park

4) Ferris Bueller's Day Off

5) Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

 

My Guilty-Pleasure Top Five 😁:

1) Airborne

2) The Beach

3) The Thirteenth Floor

4) Total Recall

5) The Goonies

 

Shoutout to so many other movies that have entertained the crap out of me over the years too like Aliens, Back to the Future 2, Lord of the Rings, Barry Lyndon, Rounders, The Program, Goodfellas, Star Wars, Happy Gilmore, Edge of Tomorrow, Kingpin, Three Amigos, Spies like Us, Weird Science, The Fugitive, My Cousin Vinny, The Sandlot, Titanic, The Shining, Conan the Barbarian, Predator...

Man, now that I remembered Predator, I want to try to get it into my Top Five somehow. Such a fun one. 

Alright I'll stop there. I think if read this post in ten years, I'll probably be okay with this list, even the guilty pleasures!

I had Raiders and  Boogie Nights but got push back. I guess I should clarify, we had to pick only our top 5.

Man, this might take me a while. 🤣

So, top 5 best movies of all time. I was thinking top 5 favorite movies, which is a completely different question. 

1. The Shawshank Redemption. I do not think there is a weak actor in the movie. There really aren't any plot holes. This has been my favorite movie for the past 20+ years. Maybe that sways it, but I think it holds up against any movie made of all time. Also, 1994 is a STACKED year in movie. Forest Gump (which might be on the list I haven't decided yet.), Pulp Fiction (which might be on the list), Lion King, Leon: The professional, Interview with a Vampire. The year of Jim Carey with Dumb and Dumber (I actually hate this movie), Ace Ventura (I hate this movie), and The Mask (best one of the 1994 J.C. movies). Throw in Speed, which is fantastic. The Little Giants (the annexation of Puerto Rico!), this is for nostalgia. I mean, three 1994 movies made the top 11 on IMDB best 250 movies (I was curious). 

Now the tough part. I might get some flak for this, but I do not think any of the Star Wars movies should make the list. The writing is not that good. The acting is OK. Star Wars has always been about the visuals and the lore. Episode 4 was so transformative for the movie industry with the creation of ILM, but as a movie, it shouldn't be in the top 5. Neither should Empire Strikes Back. I am sure those who saw it in the theatres would have a different opinion, but my first time watching this was on a small TV in the mid 90's. The whole (SPOILER ALERT 😛), I am your father scene, never hit home for me. I never found myself rooting for Luke at all. I didn't have much attachment to that character. It fell short for me. 

Same with LOTR series. Very good, and as a fan of the books, masterclass in movie adaptations. I don't think any of them are a top 5 movie. 

So, here is my short list that I need to pick 4 from. I probably mist a few, but I was going with ones I actually watched. There are some top 100 movies I have never seen. I am sure from a purely movie critique standpoint I am missing some. Oh well. 

Oppenheimer
No Country for Old Men
The Godfather
Terminator 2
Pulp Fiction
Forest Gump
12-Angry Men

I guess I would go with...

2. Pulp Fiction
3. 12-Angry Men
4. The Godfather
5. Umm... Let's go with Oppenheimer

If I am going to do my Top 5 favorite movies. 

1. Shawshank Redemption
2. The Dark Knight
3. The Usual Suspects
4. Hot Fuzz
5. All the nerdy movies. Yes, it is a cop-out, but they tie at 5 😛. So, LOTR series, Star Wars (Ep 3, 4, 5, 6) the other ones are pretty bad by a long shot, The Matrix, The Avengers Infinity War & End Game. Spider Man: Into the Spider Verse series, Jurassic Park (always holds up), Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2, Miyazaki movies, Star Trek First Contact, Disney Movies from Beauty in the Beast thru Hercules, Toy Story Series. Umm.... good for now.

I think a list of 5 is very difficult

Shawshank is definitely on the list

Boogie Nights
(This is a great film, but Really tough to omit PT Andersons other work . so I would need to include Magnolia and There Will Be Blood. And if we are being honest Daniel Day Lewis had a hell of a performance in There Will Be Blood. Actually if you watch There Will Be Blood and then Phantom Thread, you get to see DDL perform at 2 very different characters at opposite ends of the spectrum)

No Country for Old Men

Godfather
(GodFather 2 may be the better film)

Good Fellas
(I might argue that Casino deserves as much love as Good Fellas, it is simply a great gangster film)

Usual Suspects

Saving Private Ryan
(but Spielberg has made so many great movies)

L.A. Confidential

Almost Famous
(This is one of my personal Favorite films, ever!)

Modern Times
(an almost perfect silent film made as the talkies were taking over)

Sicario
Best in Show

I also love old westerns.

I don't think I'm qualified to pick "the best five movies". I do have some favorites:

In no particular order:

  • Tombstone
  • Inglorious Bastards
  • Mad Max Fury Road
  • Snatch
  • Book of Eli (BTW - I'm aware of the giant plot hole... I don't care.) 

Then I have a number of guilty pleasures that I really enjoy, but I'm not kidding myself into thinking they are some kinda high-brow cinema:

  • Planet Terror
  • Doomsday
  • The El Mariachi Trilogy
  • John Wick 1, 2 and 3 in that order. ... I like to pretend the 4th one didn't happen. 
  • The Magnificent Seven... I have to confess I like the old one and the new one. (Don't judge me.)

What's the plot hole in Book of Eli? I really liked that. I don't think The Magnificent Seven (certainly the original one) needs to be a guilty pleasure. Has there been a movie with a stronger cast than that? Brynner, McQueen, Bronson, Coburn, Wallach, Vaughan, Dexter. Pretty incredible. And a straight up remake of Seven Samurai, which is close to the definition of high-brow cinema. Kurosawa's masterpiece.
