I know you only want the top 3, (and that this post is more than 5 years old)...but I am gonna go the extra mile bear with me...

1. The Godfather Part II (1974) - For Coppola to continue where he had left off with The Godfather and produce an original and authentic continuation of such a great story is quite simply genius, and it gets my number one spot.

2. The Godfather (1972)
- A close second. Two words...Marlon Brando

3. Gladiator (2000) - Ridley Scott - the greatest film maker of all time...he has produced a timeless classic in almost every single film genre imaginable.

4. Schindler's List (1993) - "This car...Goeth would've bought this car. Why did I keep the car? Ten people, right there. Ten people, ten more people I could have saved" - I cried less at my grandad's funeral

5. Titanic (1997) - What didn't this movie have to offer? 11 Oscars...enough said

6. Apollo 13 (1995) - Ron Howard and Tom Hanks at their best

7. Heat (1995) - Pacino, DeNiro, Michael was always gonna be epic

8. Shawshank Redemption (1994)- There's a reason why this movie is in almost everyone's top 10

9. Casino (1995) - Scorsese should have got his oscar 11 years before The Departed...(some may argue 26 years earlier with Raging Bull?!)

10. Training Day (2001) - Alonzo Harris...quite possibly the greatest screen character ever created?...Washington's much deserved Ocsar in a leading role.

Ones that just missed out...

The Matrix (Wachowski Bros., 1999)

Inception (Christopher Nolan, 2010)

Hi i'm Arif, I recently graduated from University in July having studied Sports Journalism & Media for three years. Seeing as this is a movie topic, I'd thought i'd say my degree was handed to me by non other than Professor Charles Xavier (Sir Patrick Stewart).

Anyway on to my top 3 movies, am going to narrow the category by forcing myself to choose from ones released in the last few years:

1) Inception

2) Dark Knight (not seen the DK Rises yet) - That end speech from Commissioner Gordon still gives me goosebumps "He's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now"

3) The Bourne Trilogy

Hello everyone I am Cheryl, I am 23 years old, from North London. I am a massive fan of rom-coms, smart comedies, teen dramas, musicals and some action films.
My favourite three films ever have to be: The Princess Diaries, Something New and....27 Dresses. I love feel-good movies, things to brighten up my day and catchy songs. That said, Hairspray and Pitch Perfect are amazing.
Feel free to say hello!

Amour (Haneke)
Once Upon a Time in Anatolia (Ceylan)
Moonlight Kingdom (Anderson)

Hi Everyone

Some of you may be aware and some not, but for the last couple of years I have been trying to become an actor. I have enjoyed the experience but have decided to concentrate on writing and directing. I have written a short film called Without Eve and am looking for backers.
You don't need to be a millionaire to finance a film, I am looking for people to donate as little as £25.00 and they will get their name put on the end credits. I am hoping to go into production in April 2013 with a release date of around August.

I will be entering Without Eve into the 5 main film festivals Sundance, Toronto, Edinburgh, Berlin and Tokyo. Placing it on www.Vimeo,com plus putting the film into DVD format for distribution.

My local cinema have agreed in principle to show my movie before their main film and I am lucky enough to be represented by one of the largest agencies in the world who have also agreed to show my work to some of the larger studios.

If you like the idea of being involved in making a film and having your name on the end credits just click the link below to donate.


Thank's in advance for your support and if you could send this message to all your friends I would be grateful.


PS: I have started a facebook account for my film making called menteur films if your interested how the film is going please check it out and click the like button.

Thank's again

Quite hard to do 3.

1) no doubt about it being the greatest movie ever made with stunning visuals, the best editing and a fantastic cast, David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia. See the recent 70mm print.

2) a film made for a reason, even though he faced anti-semitic campaigns and physical threat's, Charlie Chaplin still made The Great Dictator, a slapstick anti-fascist farce.

3) the first indie film I can remember seeing in an art house cinema which went on to mainstream success, Downfall.

4) Any of The Cruel Sea, Ice Cold in Alex, the Dambusters, Bridge over the River Kwai, Zulu.

5) JCVD, another art house movie from the noughties, but it proved a failed action star could act, and it was actually funny. Besson's Taxi is similar.

6) Get Carter, Michael Caine menacing 60's Tyneside

7) The Thirty Nine Steps, a film list without a Hitchcock?

8) Roger and me - the arrival of our current best known documentary maker

9) Tora! Tora! Tora! Stunning US/Japan movie that was re-made 30 years later as Pearl Harbour. This one is great (Pearl Harbour sucks)

10) The Canonball Run - a trashy car flick far superior to Smoky and the Bandit.

No space for Eisenstein, The General, Scorsese or that awful series of homage movies based on Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress.

I also have a passion for Nordic Noir.
