    Isn't it fantastic? The thing was, it came out the same time that Hotel Rwanda came out, and since HR came out in theatres, it got a lot more play (SiA is an HBO production...which is of no lesser quality, but quite a bit less press). I found it quite superior to HR, even though I thought HR was great itself.

    And another forgotten but I can't leave out: ET.

    /edit

    Although, having said what I have about Supremacy and seeing Identity again tonight, I gotta say that the latter is pretty awesome. Supremacy edges it out for me just because of the brutal realism and utter conviction (the fact that the score makes me melt doesn't harm it either), but its predecessor has a hell of alot of goodness going for it.

    Red Sonya was Brigette Nelson, or whatever her name is. The chick from Rocky 4 who married Sylvestor Stalon once and now she looks like a 64 year old man. Didn't age well at all...

    My favorite part in Red Sonya was when that guy gets stuck under that big wheel-door thing and the kid is standing there like "oh ewe lame!"

    I must say that while I really like most of the slap-stick comedies out there today like Old School, et al. The one movie that has really stayed with me as being amazing is "Millions." It's about these two kids who find a million pounds like seven days before the UK switched to the euro. A really great movie about greed.

    Speaking of greed, I've heard great things about "Seven", but have never actually seen it.

    LOL....Showing your youth their kiddo. "Remember" it..Sixth Sense still qualifies with me as a new film.

    WHAT??? You mean you weren't impressed with Bruce Willis' performance in the "OMFG Im a dedman LOLZ. Oh, OKAYZ then" scene ;)
    Acting genius.

    See it!

    It's impact might be less now due to the fact that it's style has been immitated so much since it first came out...but it is still a truly awesome film. I'd go as far as to say that as an example of that genre, it's nigh on perfect.

    Even though many movies worthy of many top 10 lists has already been listed (along with some questionable ones...), a couple more need to be included, such as Mulholland Dr. and City of Lost Children. Maybe also One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Casablanca, and all "those" movies that I'm sure ranks high on some indigent yet snooty film critic's list.

    City of Lost Children's just endlessly entertaining, and strangely enough, so is Mulholland Dr. There's like, re-watchable because you don't know what-the-**** is going on, and then there's re-watchable because you do know what's going on and all the pieces are falling perfectly together.

    And oh, why the **** hasn't The Good, the Bad and the Ugly been listed? No Silence of the Lambs? You people disgust me. Also, watch Grave of the Fireflies, and until you do, you're not allowed to talk about which movies jerks your tears. :mad:

    No, I meant to imply that M. Night Shamalamadingdongla's movies suck, and always feature a LOL SURPRISE TWIST LOL.

    Also; The Good, The Bad, Ugly = win. Perhaps my sig will rotate to one of the two sigs I made from it!

    I love that one, Tony Jaa rules. Ong-Bak is good, too. :D


    EDIT: Just came home from watching V for Vendetta, it was fantastic.
    I have not seen many movies really worth remembering,
    movies that makes you go "Hmmmmm... that's... wow..." after you've watched them,
    but this was definitely one of those movies.
