what are your top five films?

Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.

Also I can't go for too long without watching The Last Waltz either...

I've just looked thru this list and I've never heard of most of those films. I didn't 'get' Amelie (saw it in French and thought it was completely boring), hate Lord of the Rings stuff and both of us tried to watch Withnail and I because my OH said it was supposed to be a cult movie but I was bored senseless so we turned it off, even the OH found it boring and he has a different taste in films to me (i.e. he watches LOTR again and again ad nauseum!!!).

My favourite film is The Sound of Music which I have watched at least 10 times. :cheers: (Christopher Plummer oh yummy)

Other than Bridget Jones Diary which I've seen 3 times now and still enjoy (probably cos of Colin Firth!), I couldn't compile a list of 5 cos I don't bother watching many films more than once - they aren't worth it! :lol:

I suppose I quite like Out of Africa and The Way We Were, but that may be because Robert Redford was gorgeous in them.

I think I just like films with hunky men in them. :mrgreen:

Edited to say: Paul just looked at your list and found a no. 5 - any of the National Lampoon vacation films with Chevy Chase in (who I DON'T find hunky, just funny!). :lol:

I've just re-read this thread too. Weird to see some names that haven't been around for a while :(

Strangely, I'd still agree with my post - which is quite weird because like many said, I thought my top 5 would change by the week - or maybe I'm just back on that week again :lol:

I'd add a couple of extras though, we've been re-visiting old Louis Malle films
Lift to the Scaffold - as much for the soundtrack as the film

and written by Luc Besson (Taxi)
District 13 - the storyline is fairly pedestrian (excuse the pun) but I could watch it every day, just for the parkour (free-running)
Maggie

Off the top of my head and I know I'll think of others as soon as I've hit the button, the ones I can watch over and over again are:

Some Like It Hot
Highlander
Practical Magic
Still Crazy
The Breakfast Club

But I could just as easily have put:

Arsenic and Old Lace
Die Hard (only the first one though)
Underworld
Tango and Cash
Back to the Future
Grease
No Way Out
Thelma and Louise
The Witches of Eastwick
Chocolat
Young Guns

And probably dozens more!

my five would be;

The Butterfly Effect
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe.
One flew over the Cuckoos Nest.
Mama Mia (sorry, its just such a feel good factor film and you can sing along!)
Forrest Gump.


But I also love Bridget Jones Diary
The Green Mile
The Full Monty

It all depends on my mood I guess.
And although I only ever watched it once and have failed to ever get a copy to watch at home....
The Last Snows of Spring.
