Juno is at the top of my must see's. For an indie film, it was genuinely creative and sweet.
Only the logicality of everything can distinguish your absolute possibility.

This film needs to be on everyone's must see list:

The Princess Bride

That is all...
Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil... prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon...

TheF1sh - <3333

Lynx and I just picked up a few movies the other day...

Dracula, Three Kinds and The Brothers Grimm are amazing movies.

I watch The Brothers Grimm like... three times today.

What Dracula? Is it the one based on Bram Stoker's novel?
What foes are we to meet in battle that we have not vanquished in the shadows of the human soul? What Daemons scream that have not cried to us from the dark places of the mind? What fear have we of death who know there is immortality in the great and noble deeds of men?

If you guys want probably the best "list" of top movies, its the Sight and Sound polls that they do every 10 years (the interview a large number of critics and a large number of directors, whose individual top 10 lists are compiled).  I have seen quite a few of these lists, but by and large Sight and Sound's polls are considered far and away the best.

Here are the most current versions:

One of the nice things is you can see who voted for each film, and which films those people voted for.  Some of the people annotated their list to say why they picked each film.

There is also a smaller poll of only UK critics regarding the best films of the last 25 years (done in 2002).  Its a little more suspect (I doubt Yi Yi or Distant Voices, Still Lives will be on the list in ten years), but cool nonetheless:

Wind said I needed to put cool lyrics in my signature:

:calvin: What about the voice of Geddy Lee
:calvin: How did it get so high
:calvin: I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy
:hobbes: I know him and he does
:calvin: Well you're my fact checking cuz

Brothers Grimm

Yeah, that's fine if you like it, but I totally disagree on that one. 
Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness.
