    Hell, I didn't see that. Nice to know I am not alone in loving this one. Also, should I ever visit, we can watch this instead of Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer. :glasses:

    I must admit i havent seen Requiem, but if we are on the same wavelength then i think i`ll have to look into it! It would have to be TOTALLY SPECTACULAR to beat Mulholland Dr. though ;) i`ll never forget watching Mulholland Dr. in the cinema , it was awesome and i think ive probably watched it 4 or 5 times on DVD.

    Wow, IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE seems to be emerging as the forum favorite. I bet nobody could have predicted that!

    I too would put "It's a Wonderful Life" close to my top. Lovely film!

    I want to also add:
    American Psycho (Harron)
    Daughters of the Dust (Dash)
    The Leaden Times (von Trotta)

    All of which, I'm just realizing, are by women.

    "Seems" is the key word here.....as, by a quick scan (and Thanks to marioscido's illegal late entry :) ) EVIL DEAD leads IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE by 6:4.......and I didn't even bounce any other films against the tally.........

    Even though these are lesser known films, I certainly recommend the following:

    The Spread-Eagle Has Landed
    Jacob's Bladder
    A River Runs Through Him
    Quickie On 42nd Street
    Color Me Purple

    And, remember the movie, "Twister"? Some rejected titles before it's release were:

    Totally Gone With The Wind
    Schindler's Twist
    Field Of Debris
    Dead Man Flying
    One House Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
    Four Weddings And A Funnel
    Roofless In Seattle

    :lol: :banana: :lol: :banana:

    Ok, I'll get serious! Favorites of mine are:

    The Haunting (1963)
    The Innocents (1961)
    The Fall Of The House Of Usher (1960)
    The Good, The Bad. And The Ugly (1967) (introduced me to Ennio Morricone)
    Zulu (1964)
    The Exorcist (1973)
    The Devil At 4 O'Clock (1961)
    Caddyshack (1980)
    Animal House (1978)
    Airplane (1980)
    High Plains Drifter (1973)
    The Tomb Of Ligeia (1964)
    Black Christmas (1974)
    Clash Of The Titans (1981)
    Dragonslayer (1981)
    Schindler's List (1993)

    As with most of you, I could go on and on, but these come to mind immediately. ;)
