The greatest movie of all time is indisputably 'Stand by Me' (with The Breakfast Club at a close second place). It was our favorite as kids... in fact, my neighborhood buddies and I went on a similar adventure when we ran away from home.

a scene that's very dear to me

I don’t have a top ten list!

But! I will tell you my favorite movie of all-time!

Gold Rush - Charlie Chaplin

Now, I know all human sex is rape... but that excludes almost every movie ever made...

The scene with the dancing potatoes and eating the shoe.... amazing!!

Film doesn’t get better than that.

Where to start.. :-k

Léon: The Professional 1995.. a very memorable assassin film, in which assassin adopts girl
Dog Soldiers 2002.. British soldiers inadvertently face rampant werewolves in the Scottish Highlands
All the brat pack films put together 1980s.. is that cheating :confusion-shrug:
Fallen 1998.. supernatural detective thriller involving Denzel Washington and an unforeseen cat
Battleship 2012.. the best alien invasion film imo, for the brutal alien WMDs alone
Watchmen 2009.. sci-fi at its kitschest retro best, done in the most fabulous of outfits
The Great Wall 2017.. East meets West, and together saves the City from the feeding vicious wild beasts
The Watch 2012.. a neighbourhood watch group v an alien invasion, whilst enjoying themselves far too much
The Fearless Vampire Killers 1967.. how to kill a vampire, without stoking up their enamoured bloodlust desires
Resident Evil 2002.. the highest-grossing film series based on a video game, having grossed over $1.2 billion worldwide.

A good film indeed.. a desperate character, very well portrayed by Douglas.

I realised a long time ago, that I have a thing for films with a 70s retro soundtrack, or with modern songs of similar sound. It creates a party in my mind.

That's a good movie. Jean Reno is a fine fellow.

How about Les visiteurs?

I’m not sure.. I don’t like too much slap-stick a’la Monty Python, so maybe not, or maybe I have and I just don’t remember.

I’m a massive Marx Brothers fan, and have seen every one of their films.. I adore Groucho and Harpo in equal measure, but Harpo is just so compelling to watch.

My favorite 90s flicks:

American Beauty
The Big Lebowski
Natural Born Killers
Casino or Goodfellas
Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs
Braveheart
The Matrix
Terminator 2
Total Recall

I'll have to think about what I'd put for the 00s.

By the 10s I got sick of movies, the 10s was the worst decade for movies anyway.
