Alright, let us compile the SNA community Top Ten list of must watch movie of all times

 

1. Star Wars Trilogy (Episodes 4 to 6)

2.

3.

4.

5.

6.

7.

8.

9.

10.

 

Any year. Any format (e.g. short film, silence). Any genre. Any language, but please group the original and their english remake together as one entry if deemed worthy (e.g. Seven Samurai / Magnificent Seven)

As SNA is a family friendly site please only suggests films with a classification rating no more than 'R' (which is already hardcore). 

 

I have done the first entry as a no-brainer, but happy to hear your argument why it ain't worthy.

Wages of Fear    

Leon

Treasure of the Sierra Madre (or Maltese Falcon) 5 Easy Pieces (or the last detail) godfather 1 (or2) apocalypse now stalker (or Aguirre wrath of god) bladerunner 2001

In no particular order,

 

The Matrix trilogy the pinnacle of cyberpunk movies.

Star Trek First Contact, easily the best next gen star trek movie and one of the most incredible borg scenes ever.

Aliens, Weaver steps up from survivor to mother protector, blew me away when it was released.

Coach Carter, makes me weep every time.

 

I'm pretty sure I will think of others throughout the night.

Star Wars and Sci Fi films do nothing for me, so.... here's  ten in no particular order:

 

 

The Seventh Seal (1957)

 

Pans Labyrinth (2006)

 

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (1975)

 

No Country For Old Men (2007)

 

The Lives Of Others (2006)

 

Pulp Fiction (1994)

 

The Godfather (1972) - I'd argue that Godfather 2 is better, but I digress.

 

Roma (2018)

 

Toy Story (1995)

 

Spirited Away (2001)

Thank you all for your suggestions. I have compiled them up into a long list of 43. In some cases I took the liberty of listing a movie together with its sequels or trilogy. To give the list some ordering I listed the movie(s) according to their IMDb score (averaged for a duo or trilogy). This ranking approach is flawed and I am open to suggestion of a more appropriate method. But for now here is the SNA must see movies list.

Taxi driver is a film very much of its time -a  post 60s, post Vietnam, busted-arse america.
It launched some great careers, as well.

For something a little left field, 'The Perfection' is a great quirky movie.

 

Whilst not too deep, 'War Dogs' was great and something i was contemplating watching again.

Sorry RT but I'll go for Robert Mitchum's just on the edge of sanity portrayal and implied menace and his lovely bass drawl.

Fine with the other choices.

 

Few people these days would of watched the original. Mitchum is one of my favs as is Broderick Crawford and a host of early 30's actors.

Loved The Raid (I trained in Silat), but could not watch 2.

 

Most of mine have been listed, so I'll just add one.

 

Enter The Dragon

 

Edit: Oh, I'll also add Ong-Bak

I am surprised neither of the first two terminator movies have not got a mention. For their genre they are outstanding. 
oh...I second the Wages of Fear. Brilliant.
2001 a space oddessy still stands up after all these years.
