    What's the most recent addition to your top 10 best/favorite films list and what movie did it knock off the list? Everyone's top ten list changes once in a while so I thought I'd ask this.

    Mine would be Seven Samurai, which I saw a few weeks ago. It knocked off Natural Born Killers.

    I normally only kept a top 5 but as I have been thinking about my top 10 over the last few months I would say that Rushmore is the most recent release to be in my top 10. Not sure what it would have knocked out, maybe something like Taxi Drive which may or may not be in my top 10 when I apply some brain power to it.
    Trainspotting and Pulp Fiction are the 2 other recent films to compete for the top 10. 3 from the 90s is pretty impressive (although I know some people would load it with 09's films [​IMG]).
    2001
    Ben-Hur
    Raiders
    Lawrence of Arabia
    Jaws
    Pulp Fiction
    Trainspotting
    ???
    ???
    ???
    Rushmore is one of those ??? but where and what the other 2 I haven't settled on quite yet. Some possiblities Empire Strikes Back, Taxi Driver, Casablanca, Citizen Kane...more thinking required. [​IMG]

    I don't have the energy to write out a list now, but I think that Memento would mae it in my all-time top 10.

    LOTR:FOTR is a lock for me, but Moulin Rouge and Black Hawk Down both moved me. MR I can see there forever, maybe not BHD (tough subject matter). I think it's been a good year.
    And my list is loaded with 90's films[​IMG] Make of that what you will.
    Take care,
    Chuck

    Hm. I have a list of 10 favorite CDs, but I've never thought to make a list of movies. I think it's very likely that Moulin Rouge, Shrek, and Lord of the Rings might be on it. But the list would be different every few weeks anyway.

    Memento is a definite addition to my top 25 or so, but not sure about top 10. I actually just saw Pulp Fiction for the first time about a week ago and it has secured a spot up there for sure. Another movie that I recently saw for the first time that is a definite top 10 contender is Casablanca. Even my younger brother, whose own top 10 is basically a list of the most recent big releases, admitted that it was now one of his favorite movies (although, based on the previous evidence that will most likely change [​IMG]).

    Ordet -- I just watched it for the first time a little over a week ago. The fact that it made me openly weep was a pretty good sign that it would find its way into my top 10. Cries & Whispers is another recent addition.

    I don't have a specific top ten list. But I can say that The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring would be in it for sure.

    City Lights.

    If I had a list of favorite musicals (Keep in mind I'm not a big fan of musicals, so they have to be VERY good.) I'd add Moulin Rouge. 10x better than I expected...and I seriously was expecting a bad movie.

    The fellowship on the ring is also on my top 10, that's for sure...

    Or, I suppose: Memento and LOTR.

    I think Memento might just crack my top 10, but its close.

    The next "newest" movie would be Pulp Fiction (which sits around number 3).

    Royal Tenenbaums will find a way in there somehow.

    Memento and Rififi are both very close or perhaps in.

    The most recent addition to my top 10 list (in terms of when I saw it and date of release) is Fight Club.
