  1. I never liked “Schindler’s List” (1993), the real story was better. Since in real life, Schindler didn’t actively participate in making the list. Because if he had, the Gestapo would have suspected something. But as long as Schindler played the rich, egotistical fool, no one would question what ever he did. That’s how his secretary was able to do what he did, because the moment anyone questioned why the factor didn’t do much and the Jewish slave labor still lived. The Nazi’s just thought Schindler was an incompetent fool, another rich kid living off his daddy’s money who was dumber than dirt and not a traitor or man who would hide/protect Jews.

  2. 10 Seven Samurai – Too old for my patience. Keanu Reeves version had a fox-lady in it.
    9 One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest – Features the namesake for the Autobot Ratchet.
    8 Monty Python & the Holy Grail – A classic but sadly over-meme’d to the point where it’s boring.
    7 Psycho – Meh, horror’s not my thing.
    6 200A Space Odyssey – Description typo & i tried to watch it, got bored before the apes even finished.
    5 Schindler’s List – Brilliant movie.
    4 The Shawshank Redemption – Also brilliant.
    3 Goodfellas – Meh
    2 Godfather – One of the few things i loaned from LoveFilm, kinda dull, least dull of trilogy.
    1 Wizard Of Oz – So old it’s painful.
    HM 1 Citizen Kane – “It Was His Sled, there, i saved you 3 boobl-ess hours.”
    2 Matrix – Seen all three, they’re allright.
    3 A New Hope – It’s Star Wars, so duh, of course i’ve seen all eight/nine once that releases.

  3. the reason most good movies arent here is because they should be watched not just once. That being said, Seven Samurai is my favorite movie of all time.

  4. Rocky, Leon., Aliens, Seven, Silence of the Lambs, Raiders of the lost Ark, Dark City, Akira, Ninja Scroll, Young Frankenstein, GhostBustes, Fight Club, It’s a wonderful life, Spider-Man 2, Jaws, American Psycho, Robocop, Planes Trains and Automobiles, Back to the Future, Groundhog day, Blues Brothers and too many more.
