@Chuk
Well, I did the calculation backwards (to calculate how many movies I'd see in about 15 month - if watched non-stop), so I guess I did miscalculate. 10.000 would seem about right.

@Beef
Renting is sounds quite expensice to me... The prices here are at least 3X lower. So the cheapest buy (some total sale of things people really didn't buy - I bought the Chaplin silent colection that way) would cost maybe 2 rents...

A good friend of mine once urged me to watch it, so I did. But I was pretty depressed when I started watching it so I couldn't really focus my mind on it. I guess it's an okay movie, I've seen better though.

Donnie Darko is a good film, but I rather think that it does indeed not deserve a number 5 spot, it's just not as fantastic, well built, and incredibly realized as other films.

Take Citizen Kane, The Man Who Would Be King, Metropolis, King Kong, The Shining, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, China Town, The Godfather, Resevoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Night Of The Living Dead, Alien, and so much more!

It kicks Alien's arse.

I quite liked it, was one of my favourites for quite awhile. Amazingly well done, even for an indie film. Gotta say Waking Life takes my #1 spot though...

Very nice choice Midget.

@Pred : Hey, it doesn't in my mind, and so agrees about hundreds of thousands of other people, but you are entitled to your own opinion.

In my opinion the best film ever is either The Godfather (first one) and Citizen Kane, maybe Schindler's List, or perhaps One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

I'm with Prej, Donnie's better than Alien. Alien's pretty good, especially for the time, but I've never been one for those kind of films.

Well, I can safely say that whatever your favorite game is, it's not better than my favorite,

Like Beef said it just gets me thinking.

And if anyone's interested here's the top 100. Some pretty useless films there if you ask me.

Amelie and Withnail And I are surprisingly high up the list - fine films those. Nice to see Being John Malkovic in there too. How did Moulin Rouge get in higher than Romeo and Juliet?
