Most favourite & most hated

Someone asked me the other day about my favourite movie. After explaining that I could never narrow it down to just one, I tried to narrow it down to 10. I could barely do it. I got to 25, but then managed to take another step and narrow it to just 10.

I’m not saying these are the best movies ever made. And I deliberately excluded sets like The Godfather, Star Wars & Lord Of The Rings. That didn’t seem fair. And so, in no particular order:

  • Almost Famous
  • Dead Poets Society
  • Fight Club
  • Grosse Pointe Blank
  • Hoosiers
  • Last Of The Mohicans
  • Seven
  • Silence Of The Lambs
  • Reservoir Dogs
  • The Usual Suspects

Also, a list of the 5 movies I’ve seen which I’ve despised the most. I’m sure there are others, but these were the ones I could think of along with their Rotten Tomatoes ratings:

  • Showgirls (15%)
  • Tomcats (14%)
  • Romance (39%)
  • Evolution (41%)
  • Adolphe (not rated, but my original review after seeing it included this line: “i’m certain this movie, in a past life, was some old sick nazi guard dog”)
