You disgust me. That list is a pile of total horseshit and you are an awful human being for having those opinions and subjecting internet viewers to them. Nothing but mindless drivel and awful choices. May you rot in hell for this.

Actually that's a pretty solid list. AI is mad-underrated because of everyone thinking Spielberg took something precious from Kubrick. No, it was a great story filmed in an exceptional manner. And Shawshank is #1 on my list so nice to see it there too. I'm just wondering how many people won't read past that first paragraph.

I'm a fan of about half of the list. But no Star Wars,Clint Eastwood movies, Goodfellas or Casino (which is odd because you had every other gangster Movie)

I like most of the movies on the list. My top 25 would have a large amount of different films, but a majority of those are 8/10's or higher for me. Was nice to see Carlito's Way in there. I feel like it is one of the most overlooked movies.

For the first few I saw (I started by going in order starting with best), I thought your list was just mostly based on IMDB ratings rather than personal taste.

I can never do these lists. Props for taking the time to do one, though. Solid list.

I think I'd do something similar with Disney. So many good ones, but the one I'd list would be Up and it would be in my Top 10.

Default Re: Personal Top 25 Films

Just to nitpick - "Hundreds of years"? It'll be a while before it evens hits 200.

25. A.I. - It's been a long time since I've seen it, but I don't remember being enthralled with it.
24. The Lion King - I'm not a big fan of animated movies, but I have no problem with The Lion King.
23. The Dark Knight - Not the superhero movie I would have gone with, but still a nice choice.
22. In Bruges - Haven't seen.
21. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - Haven't seen.
20. Bicycle Thieves - Haven't seen, but it's been on my list for a while.
19. True Romance - I really like the movie, but just not as much.
18. Planet of the Apes - I haven't seen the original, but the atrocious remake, which has kind of dampened my desire to watch the original.
17. Psycho - My fav from the '60s. Great choice.
16. There Will Be Blood - Great movie, but not what I'd consider one of my favs.
15. Pulp Fiction - I actually prefer Reservoir Dogs to this, but I like PF more every time I see it. Maybe the problem is everyone was talking about it, endlessly praising it and quoting it when it came out. I think I got burned out on it early, but I've warmed up to it over time.
14. No Country For Old Men - Same as TWBB, though I like No Country more.
13. Leon - Another really good movie, but I haven't gotten around to seeing the director's cut yet.
12. A Bronx Tale - I really like it, and it's shame that this movie doesn't get more recognition.
11. Terminator 2: Judgment Day - Nah, I'd say Die Hard takes the crown as top action movie, and I gotta say I'm a bit disappointed it's not on your list. I also prefer the first one to this. I find John to be kind of annoying.
10. Carlito’s Way - Again, I gotta say I'm disappointed that you have all these crime movies up here, but not Goodfellas, which is my 2nd fav of the bunch.
9. Sling Blade - Haven't seen.
8. American Psycho - An unsettling, but entertaining movie.
7. The Terminator - I love this movie.
6. Metropolis - Surprising choice, but a wonderful one. Probably my 2nd fav non-comedy silent movie.
5. City of God - Another great movie that gets lot of love, but not one of my favs.
4. Taxi Driver - I just didn't connect with this movie when I saw it, though I've only seen it once.
3. The Godfather Part II - It's obvious you're a big fan of crime movies, and where would the genre be without the Godfather movies? I'm a bit surprised Scarface isn't on your list. I wouldn't have it up here either, but many people love that movie.
2. The Shawshank Redemption - Good, but overrated movie. I really don't care for this selection especially being this high. I'm not really a fan of how the movie seems to paint the portrait that the people running/working at the prison are all much worse people than the actual criminals inside. It just seems everyone loves the movie and is afraid of being critical of it.
1. The Godfather - I'll commend you with your list. To me, it's too difficult to do since various movies would change from time-to-time.

It seems a bit odd you don't have any comedies up there.

It seems a bit odd you don't have any comedies up there.

I likely wouldn't have any comedies in my top 25 either. Maybe the Jerk. Comedies just usually aren't usually as solid of flicks to me, they are meant to make you laugh more than being a movie peace of art. Same thing could be said about other films (like thrillers are just meant to entertain), but I feel that comedies are more frequently best when they are further from real life styles of dialog, and when they are closer to something real, they get categorized as "dramadies" instead of "comedies." Terminator is an example of a thriller that is very far from real, but outside of the ridiculous plot, Sarah Connor responds as a regular person would if they were thrown into that ridiculous situation. In Bruges is an example of a movie that I think of as a comedy but gets classified more as a dramady because it has good acting in it rather than just ridiculous line after ridiculous line.


Anyway, I bolded the films above that are definitely in my top 25 favorite movies. Some others may be in my top 25 or are at least close (both Godfathers for example), but not for sure.

Oooh the Tim Burton one I assume. You've probably heard this before, but trust me: the only thing the remake has in common with the original is that they both have monkeys.

The original stands alone. It belongs in the upper-upper echelon of science fiction. I might only put 2001 over it.

Your personal list lacks originality, there's never any variety when people put up the same movies once they get to their top 10.

To me, "personal top films" are the movies that have had the biggest impact and shows a sort of reflection on my own life , with that in mind I don't see how the godfather could have made my top 5. Maybe I have to watch it again when I'm older

True Romance was great but it isn't a top 25 movie all time. Pulp fiction needs to be somewhere in the top 10. Terminator shouldn't even be top 30. Carlito's way is probably top 50. Shawshank once again gets its overrated spot on the top 3.

The original POTA is very good, even knowing the twist going into it. I actually don't hate Burton's, but the original craps all over it. I did really enjoy the newest one as well.
