Only director I think I've actually seen 10 movies of is probably Spielberg. I have to say though, this list is my favorites in order, not necessarily the best

1. Saving Private Ryan
2. Catch Me If You Can
3. Schindler's List
4. Jurassic Park
5. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
6. Jaws
7. Raiders of the Lost Ark
8. Empire of the Sun
9. Munich
10. Lincoln

I was never a fan of ET for some reason

I'm having trouble with top 10's lately...it's like I'm forgetting everything I've seen. But this is a great thread.


I might have to watch 9 movies today. I feel like doing a Clint list, tho I haven't seen Letters From Iwo Jima (still don't know how this happened). I also need to rewatch A Perfect World. Much like The King Of Comedy, I have no recollection of it whatsoever.

I think you need to watch Raising Arizona again...that is some of their best work

Much better that Oh Brother and True Grit

Magnolia sucked balls. TWBB was epic though.

Never saw following, but I'd rate the rest like:

1. Memento
2. Inception
3. Dark Knight Rises
4. Batman Begins
5. The Dark Knight
6. The Prestige
7. Insomnia

Lately (now that I've seen them all multiple times) I think none of the Batman movies stand out as being better or worse than the others. Obviously TDK was the best individual performance, but I think that movie has too many holes to say it's better than the others.

You are wrong. Very wrong.

Also, I cannot agree with Reservoir Dogs topping a QT list. It's better than Death Proof (obviously) and nothing else.
