Thanks for the invite! 'm ecstatic to find someone who appreciates the old classics like I do. Glad to see Casablanca at #2 on your list. Wonderful to see Modern Times in your top 10 as well. Most people consider it a foregone conclusion that City Lights is Chaplin's best work... and to be fair, City Lights may very well be his best, but Modern Times is my personal favorite... and it's probably his second best work right behind City Lights, if not ahead of it for his #1 best work.

Hey! Thanks for the request and I'm glad you like my list! It's great to see 2001 and Vertigo both in your top 10. They're just so amazing. Just out of curiosity, have you seen any films by Hayao Miyazaki? You probably noticed that I had a few of them on my list.

I've seen quite a few of his. Mainly the more popular of his; Castle in the sky, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Nausicaa of the valley of the wind... Castle in the sky is definitely my favorite film of his and also my favorite animated film of all time. It's great.

It's so good to have someone else who has Castle in the Sky as their favourite Miyazaki film and even animated film in general. It's such an amazing film to me. I just re-edited my list, so you can see what my top 5 now looks like. Also, I put Nausicaa a little higher on my list as well since you posted your comment on my profile.

Cool. Yeah Castle in the Sky is a very nostalgiac film to me. I watched it all the time as a kid but seeing it when I'm older I appreciate it even more. Film for all audiances.

I know! And my 665th film was "The Devil's Backbone", with my 666th film being "Halloween II" (which deals with the occult!). Clearly, I'm possessed / part of a conspiracy / an illuminati.

It's one of those ones that not everyone is going to love it's over the top it's campy it's dated but to me I think that's what makes the film so great I would not call it a full on horror film it does have all the elements of horror in it but I don't consider it a full on horror film it's more like a comedy kind of to be honest if you like all the dumb stuff in horror films like the over the top blood and gore and practical effects than I say go for it

The Tree of Life is a tremendous film. It's my #2, so that should give you an idea of how I regard it. Total masterpiece. However, if you're not familiar with Malick's work, it might take some getting used to.

Great question Arthouse. I love all of Nolan's stuff. Memento, Inception, TDK, and TDKR are all in my top 50 I believe. Memento and Inception are in my top 20. Other contemporaries that I love would include the LOTR trilogy. The entire saga is a masterpiece in my opinion and is in my top 20. Well, Two Towers is currently at #21 with FOTR and ROTK in my top 20. But at one time, I had the entire trilogy in my top 10. I also loved Avatar, and it's in my top 50 as well.

There are a plethora of other contemporaries that I really like, but just not top 20 worthy. Some may crack my top 50 though. Those contemporary top 50 prospects are There Will Be Blood, Gladiator, The Departed, District 9, The Bourne trilogy (especially Ultimatum), The Illusionist, and Apacalypto. Of these, TWBB, Gladiator, and The Departed stand the greatest chance of cracking my top 50. However, I do have somewhat of a peculiar liking for The Illusionist. Loved that movie when I first saw it. The problem with it and movies like the Bourne trilogy is that when I've finished watching them, there isn't a great incentive to go back and revisit them over and over again. I really big on re-watchability. I've seen most of the movies in my top 50 at least 3 times.

Oh, and I also love the X-Men franchise. I even love the third one that most people hate. All of the movies I've mentioned, including the X-Men movies, are in my top 100. So, while I do love a lot of modern day movies, there aren't many that I consider masterpieces that I can go back and revisit over and over again. Memento is a masterpiece that I'll never get tired of. Inception blew me away as well. Avatar gets criticized more than I think is necessary, but I love that movie. If it's possible for a comic book adaptation to be a masterpiece, then TDK fits the bill. And TDKR wrapped up the trilogy perfectly. In fact, I didn't really appreciate Batman Begins until after I saw TDKR.

Oh and again, LOTR is a masterpiece as well. Great question. Just out of curiosity, what prompted that question?

Hey Arthouse,
Sorry I'm so late on this reply, but in response to your DVD question: I'm not too well-versed when it comes to critiquing home video releases, but some of my favorite foreign DVD's that I own would be:

High and Low
Seven Samurai
Yojimbo
Uncle Boonmee who can recall his past lives
