I assume you mean movies that are less than 10 years old? My top ten would probably be:

1. City of God
2. Hotel Rwanda
3. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
4. Fargo
5. Donnie Darko
6. Amelie
7. American Beauty
8. I Heart Huckabees
9. Memento
10. Trainspotting

I missed them in the 70's dude, I was more concerned with kissing my first girlfriend. Sorry if I screwed your thread up, but in the last ten years, I could probably only give you five or six, and then I would be on teachers **** list again!

The House of Sand and Fog?? That movie made me depressed for three days, no kidding. It was great, but I never want to see it again. Too painful.

My top ten movies I've seen in the past ten years:

The Aviator
Kill Bill 2
Downfall
Passion of the Christ
Zoolander
Gangs of New York
Collaterial

Snatch

Of course these are all just films from the past ten years. There are many older films that I like. I love the Superman films.

Napolean Dynamite, huh? I've heard this is a good film, but after about the first 30 minutes, I thought..."Why am I watching this crap?" LOL

Should I reconsider and give it another chance?

Whenever someone I don't know well recommends a film to me, here's the question I always like to ask....

"Did you think 'Porky's' ( Police Academy, or what-have-you) was a good film?"

If they say yes, then I know not to bother seeing a film they recommend! LOL!
