    Mine are

    Donnie Darko

    Mind-bending genre-buster. It has comedy, drama, sci-fi and horror elements to it. The story itself is rather confusing at first, and you have to pay close attention to it, but you'll be thankful for having done so. Features Jake Gyllenhaal and Patrick Swayze, and features cameos from Jerry Trainor and Seth Rogan, among others.

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    The most insane movie I've ever seen. The Mad Max world is done beautifully in this one, with some very creative and memorable characters. The story isn't too complicated, but the execution is brilliant. Non-stop high-octane thrills. Perfect popcorn movie.

    Southpaw

    Just saw this this past Wednesday. Great film about a troubled boxer, portrayed beautifully by Jake Gyllenhaal. Wonderful performances from all involved, good story, and exciting action. Would really recommend this movie to a fight-fan.

    Slingblade

    The story of a mentally-impaired man named Karl Childers, (portrayed by Billy-Bob Thornton), who befriends a child and his mother, who is involved with a drunk man that abuses them both. Really solid acting and story, with a very convincing portrayal from BBT. A classic, in the eyes of many.

    Shawshank Redemption

    Everyone has seen this classic, so I don't need to explain, a lot. Just a classic. If you've yet to see it, you're missing out.

    This was difficult, seeing as I like so many movies. These, however, are movies that I could watch every day without complaint. What are yours?

    1. 28 Days Later wishing for a potential third film.
    2. Southpaw is ok but not the best. Cinderella Man is the GOAT.
    3. Spider-Man 2. They got this right.
    4. Saving Private Ryan Amazing Overall.
    5. The Dark Knight Returns Loved the comic and the movie.

    I liked the original Scream, though, I thought it fell off in the later sequels. ANOES is a horror-classic, good shit.

    Funny . . . I watched Princess Bride recently again, and wow, yeah, that is one of the best romances ever. Plus it's action-packed and funny. But the relationship between the servant-boy and the princess is really awesome IMO. Definitely almost top 5 worthy for me.

    Really liked all the Alien movies, as well as the Terminator films (Even Genisys, because Emilia Clarke). I always SPR whenever it's on TV. Great action flick.

    This is suuuper tough to boil it down to top 5. I'll try.

    Drive

    This Is The End

    The Ring

    Grosse Pointe Blank

    Secret Window

    honorable mentions because I can't help it (and they're pretty much interchangeable): Saving Private Ryan, Frailty, Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken, Zoolander, Tenacious D and The Pick of Destiny, Dumb and Dumber, The Princess Bride, The Next Three Days, Breakdown, Bridesmaids

    1. Tax Driver
    2. TGTBATU
    3. Mad Max 2 aka The Road Warrior

    Those are my definitive top 3 but after that I can't really put the rest of my favourites in strict order as it's too close to call most of them, here's some of the top contenders though...

    Aliens, Chopper, The Wanderers, T2, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Cool Hand Luke, Goodfellas, The Thing, King Of Comedy, I Saw The Devil, Once Upon A Time In The West, The Keep, Ringu, Samsara, Baraka, Dredd, The Crow, Leon, Predator, Cape Fear (Scorsese remake), Platoon, A Bittersweet Life, Ghost Dog.

    5 is too short. Need a top 25. I could run off a whole strip of excellent films.
