Obviously his taste in films is more refined than the vast majority of the world. :-b

...or The Dark Knight, which I think is a very good movie, just not good enough to be a classic IMO. I don't trust IMDB lists, as even Slumdog Millionaire is in front of Taxi Driver. Again, decent movie, just doesn't compare to many of the true gems. The IMDB Top 250 might as well be a hype barometer for current movies with some kind of subjective wow factor.

I haven't seen Slumdog Millionaire but yea, while I don't disagree with the Dark Knight's score, I do think it's pretty crazy that it is above Taxi Driver.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Pretty decent list from the American Film Institute.

Still has Taxi Driver too low in my opinion, but I can't argue against most of the films ahead of it. :-?

LOTR sucked as well, each movie was way too drawn out and really boring


List your top 5 movies than...


off the top of my head and not really in any particular order:
Shawshank Redemption
Gladiator
Ratatouille
Se7en
Glory
Star Wars trilogy
Indiana Jones trilogy

some of my recent favorites are:
The Dark Knight
Tropic Thunder
Superbad

pretty much all movies which are actually good.

Most your movie favorites are newer movies.
You need to watch the older classics for what they are worth and not attempt to compare them to movies today.

Star Wars FTW.

Forest Gump would be higher up on my list than that. I just watched it again last night and it could be my all time favorite. Another movie with a great soundtrack.

maybe i'm too young to relate to the older movies or something, but all of the movies i listed are so vastly superior to any old movies i've seen that i don't see the point in watching the older movies "for what they are worth".
