Movies that you must see

Recommended Posts

Ok i thought i'd turn to you all for help. essentially i'm compiling a list of movies, "those" movies that you gotta see atleast once in a lifetime. The films dont have to necessarily be the academy award for best picture type, or even that old. Hell, you dont even have to have liked the film! The logic behind this idea was that i was recently shocked to find that my 18yr old sister had never seen super troopers or any of american pie series :whoa:. So i started to make a list for her and then I figured it could also be applied to everyone as i'm sure there will be quite a few films that come up that i and others may not have seen.

 

heres what i got just off the top of my head:

 

American Pie 1-3

Avatar

BaseketBall

Clerks

Clerks 2

The Dark Knight

Die Hard 1-3

Ghostbusters

The Godfather

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

Scarface

Spiderman

Super Troopers

Superbad

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

X-men 1-3

 

if you guys keep (start) posting i'll try and keep updating the list. PS lets try and avoid debate and just say all reasonable suggestions will be accepted as everyone has different tastes

I'm gonna be lazy and say IMDB's Top 250 and Infernal Affairs 1-2 if that wasn't in there.

 

Red Cliff 1 - 2 (if you liked Three Kingdoms story and/or Dynasty Warriors).

 

Inception :D (being the most recent that I saw)

It's a horrible way of weighting though, Inception and Toy Story 3 are in the top 10 FFS, they shouldn't be in the top 250 at all!!! dry.gif

Plus, most of the list is 'crowd pleasers' rather than good films.

Its because its based on fan reviews. So newer movies are gonna get a lot more reviews by users than older movies (due to the mass accessibility to the internet now than years ago).

I know, which makes it next to useless in my view.
