Still haven't gotten around to seeing Casino. Goodfellas didn't do much for me, so I've always put if off because it looks kinda like the same movie...

There have been reviews saying that it is the same kind of movie just set in the glowing desert of Las Vegas however the quotes and characters make it so much more enjoyable

I so hope you do see 12 Angry Men- Its the first black and white movie I saw and its my favorite! Its perfection! Yes, Finding Nemo is plain awesome and deserves a spot in my top 20 for now :) Its not the pinnacle of animations IMO, Toy Story for me but its pretty darn perfect

I'm so glad you have Casablanca, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Return of the Jedi! Amazing movies :) So is Goodfellas. Definitely need to check out Casino :)

I do hope you see The Shining and Se7en, two of my favorites! Great list and hope to see more movies coming from you :)

Toy Story was brilliant however the visuals of Finding Nemo are purely incomparable to any other animation.I guarantee you will love casino if you loved Goodfellas and I would love to hear your opinion after you've watched it.

I keep hearing about Se7en and I'm looking forward to it,just got to save some money so I can update my blu ray collection yet again.Thank you and I'm glad to have met a movie lover with similar interests

Sorry, I haven't seen your comment. I definitely need to see Casino and Heat. Finding Nemo is nevertheless, amazing! WOW! You haven't seen T2? Bro, ya gotta see it. It's amazing! I would say that it is Cameron's best but you should really watch the original Terminator before you see T2. It make it that much better besides the original is amazing as well :D See, the good thing is that you got so many amazing movies to watch :D

I think I have to watch/rewatch the whole Terminator series except for Salvation which is apparently pure garbage,There is so much I'm yet to see and the anticipation of getting to watch all of them is the best feeling.Movies have definitely crushed my social life.

WOW! You really love Star Trek: Into Darkness don't you!? I can't wait to see it soon!!! Would you say it is better than the '09 one?

From the get go it was fantastic and visually captivating,fast paced action and Spock was the highlight out of all the characters for me,I'm not a trekky at all but man I loved the picture.

Oh man, I saw Star Trek: Into Darkness last night and it was amazing! I still prefer the 2009 one, slightly simply because I need an extra viewing to be sure what I love more! To me, every actor was a scene stealer except for Alice Eve (who was okay) and the guy who played Chekov.

Zachary Quinto was amazing, Chris Pine was so amazing as usual, Carl Urban stole the show as did Simon Pegg. I thought Zoe Saldana was actually fantastic in this film, more so than the '09 version. I definitely love her Uhura more than the old one! Leonard Nimoy was once again, great to see back! However, the best performance in the film IMO was BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH....He was UN-FRICKING-BELIEVABLE!!

Stunning visually and storywise, the character development perfectly fell in place imo and I definitely loved the villain a x1000 more than the original! Fantastic film, easily the best of the year thus far!

When I saw it was Benedict Cumberbatch as the antagonist I was pretty much expecting him to fail and potentially ruin the film however,Man he lit up the screen and at one point I was actually cheering him on.Overall IMO it was way better than the first one on all levels.

Sorry, I only just saw your comment above to me. That's very nice of you. Thanks, mate. :)

Um, when it comes to Shoot 'Em Up, it's a movie that I haven't found anyone that likes it as much as me. So be aware of that, where I place it in my list is quite unique. How are you with over-the-top movies? Because I love them! That's why Kick-Ass, 300, Shoot 'Em Up are so far up my list.

The movie is kinda like Bugs Bunny (Smith) vs. Elmer Fudd (Hertz)....carrots and all! With ludicrous and elaborate deaths that just put a smile on my face. It's funny too! I get very angry at certain things I see people do, but I don't react. So it's really enjoyable for me to see Smith be just as angry, but completely go overboard!

The main plot of the movie is these crims are after this baby, and this hobo (Smith) is just waiting at the bus stop, but has to reluctantly get involved when the mother could be killed. Action and hilarity ensues.

The movie doesn't really suit your top ten, but you might have those type of movies further down, to be honest, I really haven't checked.

Other minor points I like are.

The b movie style, with a grade actors.

The soundtrack. Get's me pumped watching it. I don't like all the songs, but they suit the movie. Especially AC/DC.

I remember the director Michael Davis saying that Hertz was written such a way that he had watched all the 80's action movies, and knew what not to do. Like not waiting around for the henchman to do the dirty work.

It might not be for you, but hopefully I helped a bit to help you decide whether you want to see it or not.

If you ever want to ask me anything else, feel free to do so. :)

WOW! I've seen some stuff in your top 10 that I never even noticed! YAY, a Casablanca fan :D

Also we both love Reservoir Dogs, Star Wars, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas and The Godfather Part 2 :D

Definitely need to re-watch Citizen Kane and most definitely, Fight Club which I didn't get into last time

Casablanca is an amazing movie,seriously get it on blu-ray it was amazing, definitely Bogarts best performance.HOW COULD YOU NOT LOVE THOSE MOVIES? Charles Foster Kane is one of my biggest rolemodels so he's obviously got to be on top.

Hey, apologies for the late reply. I'm terrible at checking my profile for comments.

I appreciate the recommendation! Of course, Citizen Kane is on my want-to-see list.

So many movies, so little time...
