    By: Monta and Lori
    • 10. Armaggeddon
      "Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck saving the world. Mainly... Ben Affleck... what a hottie! The whole movie is entertaining, and it's the only movie I've ever seen an intire audience walk out of the theater with tears in their eyes. Even the men. Love it, love it, love it!" -- Monta
    • 9. Sense and Sensability
      "Once again, another Alan Rickman movie. And he's just great. And Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson are just two wonderfully great British actresses. And my heart is and always will be belonging to 'Sense and Sensability'." -- Lori
    • 8. Tombstone
      "After 'Top Gun', I thought I would never again like Val Kilmer. Never. But, this movie changed my mind. The whole portrayal of the events that happened in and around Tombstone amazes me. Brilliant and entertaining." -- Monta
    • 7. Ever After
      "It's a girl-powered Cinderella story in which it's actually the chick that saves the day. It's also very inspirational. I watch it all the time." -- Lori
    • 6. The Sixth Sense
      "So, I didn't know how the movie would end. And, when it ended... I didn't really know how we got there. But, there we were. And Bruce was dead. And I was in shock! It was amazing. And that little kid... BRAVO!" -- Monta
    • 5. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

      "Tom Hanks. There is no better actor than Tom Hanks! And what other movie could show us pieces of American History through the eyes of such an unknowingly brilliant man?!" -- Monta
    • 3. Nightmare Before Christmas
      "Little clay people singing to Danny Elfman music. Does it get any better?!" -- Lori
    • 2. Titanic
      "Okay, so everyone wants to dog on it because Leonardo DiCaprio is a freaking fag... okay. That doesn't change the fact that it is a wonderful piece of cinematic art." -- Monta
    • 1. Braveheart
      "It's the only movie, really...." -- Lori
    Runners-up: "Ace Venture 1 & 2" --- "Silence of the Lambs" --- "City Slickers 2" --- "Good Will Hunting" --- "Mrs. Doubtfire" --- "Never Been Kissed" --- "10 Things I Hate About You"

    • 10. Seven
      O yeah,...another great cast, with a familiar storyline that's retold in a difinitively different manner that leaves you breathless with anticipation.
    • 9. Fargo
      If my wife wants to get my attention, she tells me she's going to Home Depot to buy a woodchipper...
    • 8. Shawshank Redemption
      Unnerving and quirky, it's like that great cup of coffee that makes you claim every drop...and want more...
    • 7. Pulp Fiction
      4 short stories intertwined to make a classic "film noir"...gave the world something to talk about for months...
    • 6. Reservoir Dogs
      A great cast, with an unforgettable sound track connected to the ultimate torture scene...
    • 5. Matrix
      After viewing it if you don't question your own existence, you really didn't get the substance of the movie...
    • 4. Unforgiven
      see above...but"'just desserts have nothin' to with it"...simply one of the quintessential Westerns...
    • 3. Tombstone
      OK, maybe overated..but the best acting job of the decade was watching Val Kilmer's uncompromising, unforgettable campy interpretation of Doc Holiday
    • 2. Silence of the Lambs
      Hannibal was the man...still think of him trailing his nemisis at the end every time I have a glass of chianti...
    • 1. The Usual Suspects
      Great lines (and just like that: he was gone...),great cast, and a great ending twist that you tell yourself you should've seen coming...
    Saw where some people think Unforgiven is the best Western ever...well, maybe...but try "Once Upon a Time in the West" (the uncut version)
    By: Tim
    • 10. Saving Private Ryan
      Great screenplay.
    • 9. Seven
      great story line
    • 8. Happy Gilmore
      Seen it over 35 times... never ceases to make me laugh.
    • 7. Braveheart
      Best medieval war movie.
    • 6. Mallrats
      Kevin Smith's best film. Very funny
    • 5. The Usual Suspects
      Every movie with a gimp is great =)
    • 4. The Negotiator
      great movie overall... i got nothin to say.
    • 3. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
      Jim Carrey's best performance ever. Brilliant. One of the funniest movies ever.
    • 2. Reservoir Dogs
      Another great piece by Quentin
    • 1. Pulp Fiction
      The best script ever written.
    "Have you seen this boy?" -Wayne's World
    By: Joel
    • 10. American History X
      Edward Norton is the man in this movie. The black and white footage gives the film that certain flair. Great moral movie.
    • 9. Donnie Brasco
      Johnny Depp is the best dramatic actor of all time and Pacino is excellent in this movie based on real events. Watching Depp transform into Pacino while becoming so deep in his assignment is superb.
    • 8. The Matrix
      What more is there to say. Awesome special effects and it made Keanu Reeves cool again. Any movie that can do that is cool in my book.
    • 7. Pulp Fiction
      Very cliche, but this movie is badass. Revived a lot of careers, especially my favorite, Bruce Willis. The scene at the end with him and Ving Rhames is a classic.
    • 6. Billy Madison
      I mean this movie is completely brain dead, but so damn funny. A comedic classic and Sandler's best role of all time.
    • 5. Braveheart
      Mel Gibson in one of his finest roles. Makes me feel sympathetic for those Scottish bastards, and I have bloody English ancestry.
    • 4. Fight Club
      Brad Pitt and Edward Norton make a great combination in this fantastic adaptation of Chuck Pahluinuk's classic novel.
    • 3. Home Alone
      If you don't like this movie you're a communist. The essential Christmas movie of this generation if not all time. Nostalgia at it's best, reminds me of being 8 again and snowy childhood Christmas'.
    • 2. Clerks
      Was there any doubt? Jay and Silent Bob are one of the funniest duos of all time.
    • 1. Mallrats
      Hard to top Clerks, but Kevin Smith found away in Jason Lee. He absolutely steals the movie, plus the damn thing's plain retarded.

    By: David
    • 10. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze
      Hey the Turtles rocked!
    • 9. Jurassic Park
      Hey dinosaurs why not!
    • 8. Independence Day
      A great alien flick.
    • 7. Saving Private Ryan
      Good war movie!
    • 6. The Sixth Sense
      one word creepy!
    • 5. Fight Club
      A weird yet wonderful flick.
    • 4. The Shawshank Redemption
      A gripping tale of prison life.
    • 3. Dazed and Confused
      A good movie about 1970s summers!
    • 2. Dumb & Dumber
      Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels flick comes in a close tie for 1st but didnt make it!
    • 1. Twister
      Tornadoes, Disasters, and a good cast make this the #1 film for me!

    By: Phil Mattox
    • 10. A Few Good Men
      Top Gun and A Few Good Men were the only Tom Cruise movies I Really liked.****
    • 9. Shawshank Redemption
    • 8. Enemy Of The State
      Gene Hackman, need I say more ****

      Arnold ****

    • 4. Dances With Wolves
      Wonderful *****
    • 3. Forrest Gump

      This is a must see if you like a good western ****
    • 1. Silence of the lambs

    By: Alex Lynn
    • 10. Saving Private Ryan
      This movie created a new generation of war movies. Nothing has lived up to it since. The leap has not been equalled again. Although I sometimes feel like Spielberg plays to the masses, who can deny his brilliance here?
    • 9. The Crow
      Alex Proyas directs this movie that is better the second time around. It's then that you start to notice the camera work, the lighting, the dialogue and the atmosphere.
    • 8. Terminator 2: Judgement Day
      I've seen this movie so many times I've lost count. I am praying to the gods that the next one doesn't do it an injustice.
    • 7. Eyes Wide Shut
      I don't pretend to be a movie critic, but sometimes one sees more to a movie ... than just a movie. I see something about the simplicity and complexity of life. What seems good and what the realisation is. I don't know. Maybe it's just me!
    • 6. From Dusk 'Till Dawn
      It wouldn't be right to leave out Quinten. I personally think this movie is a classic. (I might be too proud in my stance to admit that Pulp is better though).
    • 5. 12 Monkeys
      This is the first time I suspected that Brad Pitt had more to him than about a billion girls lusting after him. One of those quirky movies that makes you think about life and alternatives.
    • 4. Office Space
      Why doesn't anyone rate this movie. Maybe Dilbert's Scott Adams would agree with me? I can't like epics only now can I?!
    • 3. Leon - The Professional
      Jean Reno must be one of the most addictive yet puzzling actors around. What a mix for a movie! Who would expect them to produce a classic.
    • 2. Heat
      One of the classiest movies ever made. With direction that oozes high-brow brilliance.
    • 1. Braveheart
      A movie that covers every movie spectrum imagineable. If we watch movies to make believe, who wouldn't want to believe we are capable of being William Wallace.

    By: Sammy
    • 10. True Romance
      So many good actors and actreses in this movie, yes directed by Tony scott but written by Quentin tarantino.
    • 9. Jurassic park
      The movi's plot was a cool idea and the special effects are what makes it a movie definatly worth watching.
    • 8. Absolute Power
      The characters that were developed by Ed harris are great. It is a constant game of cat and mouse. Eastwood is Awesome in it.
    • 7. Seven
      A cool twwist at the end, the screenplay is what sets the mood in this movie.
    • 6. Scream
      A pretty good movie for horror.
    • 5. Forrest Gump
      Hanks is a good actor and he shows it very well in this movie. The movie is good because he is totally oblivious to what is happening.
    • 4. Titanic
      A love story like no other that makes you reminds that love is what keeps us together through something like the Titanic.
    • 3. Shawshank redemption
      Shawshank is a great movie I loved it, I think that noone could have played that part as well as Morgan Freeman did.
    • 2. Pulp fiction
      No real plot just characters and the things that happen to them. The acting is magnificent and it is a 4 if not 5 star movie.
    • 1. An officer and A Gentlemnen
      You cant handle the truth. Cruise, brilliant. Nickleson, brilliant.
