That's a pretty great list actually. Royal Tenenbaums, Spinal Tap, Se7en, Nosferatu, LA Confidential, Reservoir Dogs and Goodfellas would probably all make my top 40, in fact I was very much toying with Se7en and LA Confidential for my top 20 but the others just held a bit more nostalgia value for me.

My definite favourite movie #1 is Monty Python's Life of Brian.
That's for sure. No question about it. I will take this to my grave.

But aside from that it's really hard to do a list in a specific order like "Top 10" or something. I tried to this or even a Top 30 but it's hard because changes can happen.

I'll try to list up movies I really love besides Life of Brian (without a specific order):

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Great Escape
Toy Story 1-3
South Park - Bigger, Longer & Uncut
Amèlie
Run Lola Run (my favourite German movie btw)
Battle Royale
First Blood
Kung Pow - Enter the Fist
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Evil Dead I & II
Disney's Beauty and the Beast
Dawn of the Dead (Original)
Grave of the Fireflies
Aliens
Yellow Submarine
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Train of Life
Cannibal! The Musical
Sin City
The Incredibles
Ratatouille
Her
Welcome to the Sticks
Pleasantville
The Big Lebowski

If anyone is interested, you can check my "Likes" list at Letterboxd with movies I clicked "Like". Not all of these would fit in a proper favourite movie list (plus also movie shorts, guilty pleasures and concert footage are included). But I guess this gallery represents my taste quite well. --> http://letterboxd.com/tabascofanatic/likes/films/

BTW:
@all: Nice lists, really, including really good movies Smile

I've also just recently set up a letterbpxd page if anyone wants to add me: http://letterboxd.com/david_cassette/

It's actually a really useful website. I've already found a bunch of great movies to watch just from browsing through other peoples lists.

I have to admit, I've never been a fan of ranking things, let alone making top whatever number between 3 and 11 you happen to like, because...well, I suck at scoring.

My favourite movie of all time is either Game of Death 2 or Once Upon a Time in the West....or For a Few Dollars More. GoD2 is kind of a given considering I enjoy it both for it's competence (in the fight scenes) and incompetence (everything else), but I never could decide which one I liked more, FaFDM or OUaTitW.

I nearly flipped when I saw Game of Death (one of the worst movies I've seen), but it was the part 2 after all which I know nothing about. Very Happy

James Rolfe did talk about Bruce Lee movies in one of his videos, he mentioned that he liked GoD2 better than the original...but he didn't say a whole lot. If you want to hear my detailed take on that film, check out the amazon listing for the DVD.
