My top films are:

1. A matter of Life and Death
2. The Pirates trilogy (and however many more films they want to do. More the merrier as far as I'm concerned)
3. The Lord of the Rings trilogy
4. Dougal and the Blue Cat
5. What's up Doc?
6. Mary Poppins
7 Sound of Music
8 The Way we Were
9 The Thomas Crowne Affair (Pierce Brosnan/Sting version)

In no order whatsoever (apart from the first one)

1: Dr, Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb.
2: Fight Club.
3: Jubilee.
4: Ed Wood, as long as it is immediately followed by Plan 9 From Outer Space.
5: 2001, A Space Oddessy.
6: The Princess Bride.
7: This Is Spinal Tap.
8: Where Eagles Dare.
9: Young Frankenstein.
10: The Usual Suspects.

On reserve, in case 4: is cheating -
The Dark Knight, and Casablanca.

Subject to change any minute, and in no particular order:

Citizen Kane (1941) - I know I know, but I even watched this 25 times as a kid. It really is *that* good.

Vertigo (1958) - Hitch at his peak, a dreamy disturbing masterpiece.

Airplane! (1980) - never fails to perk me up.

Jaws (1975) - almost a classic by default since the damned plastic shark didn't work, hence a focus on drama and stunning management of the three leads.

Goodfellas (1990) - not as fresh as when released, but does show how influential it really was.

American Beauty (1999) - a revelation for Spacey, Brit director Mendes and writer Ball. A movie for our times and all everymen out there.

The Elephant Man (1980) - or a handful of other Lynches, too. A stunning, humane picture that is by turns horrifying, surreal, emotionally draining and inspirational.

Alien (1979) - the original and best, knocking all other Ridleys into a cocked hat; yes, even Blade Runner.

Taxi Driver (1976) - maverick film-making by a maverick director, writer (Shrader) and cast; even they were surprised by the reception. The Dark Side of America brought to beautiful yet brutal life.

Duck Soup (1933) - everyone needs a bit of Groucho, and they don't come better than this.
