    Hmm, that's why I didn't recognise the title. I've not seen one single Star Trek movie. :D

    Btw, some more great movies:
    The Crow (the mass shooting scene is to die for)
    Delicatessen
    The Vanishing (the original version)

    If you like mass shooting scenes..

    Try to track yourself down a copy of John Woo's "Hard Boiled" with Chow Yun Fat - before they both went to Hollywood to make buckets of money, but had to tone down their violence because the White Men can't handle it. 8) The movie will be in Cantonese, with English subtitles - should be available at a video place..

    John Woo is the man when it comes to celluloid gun violence. Been doing it for years. :mrgreen:

    Well, yes, there's certainly been a lot of great movies made in our history. There's also been a helluva lot of bad ones too.

    And this isn't talking about the porn genre either! :mrgreen:

    You all have got to be kidding me. I'm seeing a lot of movies listed here, that while good (and movies I enjoy immensely), are no way in the Top 5 Movies of All Time. (I do know, of course, that it's all personal preference. So I'm therefore not going to carry that any further.)

    That being said, it's my turn to amaze and confuse people with more movie choices. :)

    1. the Godfather
    2. Raiders of the Lost Ark
    3. Goldfinger
    4. the Untouchables
    5. Star Wars

    And if you've read this far, just for the hell of it, here are my 6-10:

    6. the Maltese Falcon
    7. the Seven Samurai
    8. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
    9. 12 Angry Men
    10. Apocalypse Now

    Yes, it's as good as Spiderman but not quite as well done as Batman. Maybe it's because I'm a big fan of Jennifer Connelly, but I thought the hulk's love interest was a bit more complex and interesting than spiderman's. And like Spiderman, there was a good lead-up to the all-out action scenes in the Hulk. I didn't really like the green goblin as spiderman's nemesis, but the final battle in the Hulk was enjoyably different and really well done, if a bit surreal :)

    I like TOG's top movies better than those listed at the IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes.
