Top 25 Favourite Films

I'm sick... And I haven't blogged in a long time. So I thought I'd pass some time by making a brand new Top 25 Favourite Films list.

Those who know me know this is a diffcult task, I'd rather make a top 200 and not leave any films I love... this was actually gut-wrenching.

I had some rules; I couldn't look at previous lists, I couldn't include a triology or series as one slot (single films only). 

This list is 100% biased. It is based on my enjoyment, my emotional connection with characters and content, my desire to share the film with others. Here it is...

1.       The Matrix

2.       Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

3.       American History X

4.       Forrest Gump

5.       The Shawshank Redemption

6.       One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

7.       Schindler's List

8.       Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

9.       Inception

10.   Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

11.   Glory

12.   Memento

13.   Dead Poets Society

14.   The Truman Show

15.   Fight Club

16.   The Motorcycle Diaires

17.   The Departed

18.   District 9

19.   A Beautiful Mind

20.   Garden State

21.   Stand By Me

22.   Gone Baby Gone

23.   Children of Men

24.   Guardians of the Galaxy

25.   Crash

Overall it's pretty similar to my previous top lists, 6 films from my previous top 25 are omitted (most notabley "The Godfather"). I am shocked and a bit sad that Robert deNiro isn't in any of these films, but I think he'll get over it.
