This website is ace! You missed off the Princess Bride though, that is a classic.
Surprised to see Happiness on your list. It’s an underrated favorite of mine as well. It’s also one of three movies my cousin asked me to never show him again.
I was also pleased to see The Fall among your favorites. It truly is a masterpiece of cinema.
Goodfellas is my favorite movie! Like you said, who needs a trilogy? It has it all in one kick ass movie!
Memento is by far one of the best movies ever made. Children of God, Primer, all great picks. Surprisingly, there are a good handful of films I haven’t seen on this list so I will make a note and put them in my Netflix queue.
My favorite movie is Dead Poets Society. I know, sappy. But it’s all about the place and time that I watched it. Carpe Diem! :-)
Definitely chuck the rest on your Netflix! 100% recommended.
I’ve never seen the Dead Poet’s Society. Looks like the books equivalent of what Cinema Paradiso is to movies?
What about Bicycle Thieves or Pan’s Labyrinth or M or Let the Right One In…………?
Some classics there! The Bicycle Thieves I’ve not seen since my uni days, as with M (but I just realised it’s in the list of films in the public domain, so downloading it now). Got the Pan’s Labrynth Blu Ray in my ‘to watch’ pile – will jump it up the que. As for LTROI, wasn’t my bag, although if you like it I’d STRONGLY recommend the Lukas Moodysson box set – it’s immense.

I 10000000000% love this list for the fact you included BASEketball. One of my favorite comedies of all-time. Anyone who doubts Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s comedic genius needs to see this because it could’ve fallen way flat without them.
Sorry I’m a bit late to the party, but anyone who cites ‘The Fall’ as a Top Movie is all right in my book.
I can never pick a favorite. If I had to choose give: Slumdog Millionaire, The 400 Blows, Schindler’s List, One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Shining. I’ll add a few of these to my list, i.e. the ones I weren’t too sure about such as Memento, Oldboy, Children of Men, and Goodfellas.
