    Top Five Movies?

    I feel sure this has been done before, but let's hear 'em.

    Mine are, in no particular order, The Big Lebowski, The Princess Bride, Harold and Maude, The Thing, and Alien.

    So- bring on the movies!

    Short Circuit
    TMNT series
    Ghostbusters series
    Neverending Story
    Labyrinth

    I like a lot of movies, but these are some I'd watch on a regular basis.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I love the Swedish versions of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. My favorite is The Girl who Played with Fire.
    I love Pride and Prejudice the 2005 version with Keira Knightly. Though I think Keira Knightly and Adela should share lunch. I love the movie Battle Los Angeles although I think it is mostly a marine recruiting film. My all time favorite movie is The Big Country with Gregory Peck and Jean Simmons. Awesome movie!
    I am looking forward to next weeks release of Total Recall. I say the first one in the theater and I play on seeing the new one in a theater.

    My favorites all are pretty old too. Also in no particular order:

    The Wild Bunch - Pecikinpah was a genius.
    The Thing - Carpenter's, best ending ever.
    Casino - Slightly more than Goodfellows.
    Blade Runner - Prometheus made me cry for Ridley.
    Chinatown - Noir, Polanski and I love LA.

    Edited to add Sharon Stone kicking Arnolds ass is going to be tough to top but I'm also looking forward to the remake.

    I really like your movie choices. Chinatown is brilliant.
    Have you seen Death and the Maiden? Another amazing and thought provoking Polanski film.
