    I love these two films! If you like A Clockwork Orange I think you'd really like Requiem for a Dream... although I do warn you it's all about drugs and stuff and isn't all that pleasant!

    Thanks for sharing that with me... I haven't seen Leon or Jeepers Creepers so will get them out :D

    I can't think of 10 films off the top of my head, but there's seven or eight I really like, in no particular order:
    1. The Shining
    2. Ivans XTC (I don't know anyone who's watched it, but you should!)
    3. LA Conifdential
    4. Monty Python's Life of Brian
    5. Donnie Darko
    6. Romeo & Juliet (Don't laugh!)
    7. American Beauty
    8. Deliverance (Although I live in a tiny in-bred village so I don't go out in the village at night anymore :D )

    I'm going to have a nosy round the video for the "requim the dream" that everyone seems to like.

    I'm not laughing. I really liked Romeo and Juliet, if its the Franco Zeferelli (sp)version. It would make onto my top 20. I had forgotten about Deliverance and The Shining. Both really good movies. I though Jack Nicolson was ideally cast in the Shining and enjoyed the Scatman in the movie as well. Really good choices. I may have to look at my top ten again and include a couple of yours.

    Not sure which version of Romeo & Juliet - it's the one with Leonardo Di Caprio and Claire Danes (mmm!) in it.

    Jack Nicholson is a quality actor - I like him in "One flew over the Cuckoos Nest" aswell.

    Thanks for indulging me :D

    Nozero - Requiem for a dream rocks eh. Kinda discturbing but I really like it. And Dead Poets Society, what a classic! I cried SO much when I saw that film.. O CAPTAIN! MY CAPTAIN! I will look out for Spank the Monkey for sure.

    Raw/G&T - I tried watching "Dr. Strangelove or: how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb" but really couldn't get in to it lol. I'm sure it's a very good film (came highly recommeded from a friend at work).. but.. like.. what!? ;)

    Geoffers - Do look out for Requiem for a Dream, but remember it is a very odd and rather disturbing kinda film. About drugs and well, prostitution.

    Talking of highly disturbing films has anyone seen "The Audition"!?!? It's a Japanese Horror Film.. argh. :eek:

  20. Greetings fellow earthlings,

    Loyd Brauns top 2 list of "must see" films. In no particular order.

    1. Emit Otter's Jug Band Christmas
    2.The Decline of Western Civilization

    I recommend watching Jug Band Christmas followed by the Decline. The two movies represent mirror images of youth. Jug Band is all about innocence and The Decline, it's exact opposite--decandence, corruption.
