It's a Wonderful Life - The most compassionate character study ever put on film, with cinema's most empathetic character in the form of the magnificent James Stewart
Dead Man's Shoes - Shane Meadows' masterpiece (yes, moreso than This is England), this is a vividly melancholy and palpably believable portrait of broken lives that continually takes me by surprise
Psycho - The greatest piece of misdirection in cinema history, this deserves to be remembered for more than establishing the slasher movie template, but as a slippery piece of storytelling that has the audacity to kill off its ostensible lead character midway through
The Motorcycle Diaries - Whenever I need a dose of emotional inspiration or a reminder of how great it is to be young and free, I put on the story of young Che and his epic motorbike ride. Plus, do you get more staggering scenery?
Life of Brian - 'I say you're the Messiah and I should know, I've followed a few.' Quite simply the most perfect comedy movie ever made that knows its targets and goes after them unashamedly, whilst delivering a non-stop stream of belly laughs.
It's a wonderful life
The breakfast club
5. Star Trek VI: Undiscovered Country - A stellar send off to the Star Trek original franchise
4. Ghost in the Shell (1995) - Bringing Japanese media to the west in a major way
3. Schindler's List - A risque historical piece showing the inner struggle of morality of moderate Germans during the War
2. Angela's Ashes - A story that resonates throughout the British Isles and Ireland
1. A Clockwork Orange - A dark, deprived movie that relies on the reality of evil and reformation to stun the audience
Metropolis - The 150 minute 2012 version of course. The best looking movie robot ever and as close to Lang's original cut as we can get.
The Empire Strikes Back - By far my all time favourite of the Star Wars movies, even with the cliff hanger ending. And it's got Han Solo in it!!
Blade Runner - Every cut's worth watching, and it's got Han Solo in it!!
Diva - French thriller concerning gangsters, cops and concert bootlegging in Paris. Zen and the art of sandwich making.
Blazing Saddles - Still makes me laugh like an idiot even though I know the jokes are coming. Mongo like candy.
Honourable mentions to Young Frankenstein, Life of Brian (Brian) and Holy Grail, Jurassic Parks (Dinosaur, Rarrr!), Raiders 1-3 (And it's got Han Solo in it!!), Alice In Wonderland (Disney original), Fantasia
The greatest films ever!

Forrest Gump: Understanding an overly complex world from a simple perspective. And for the incredible soundtrack
Amelie: For the gentle vigilantly justice and guerrilla good deeds. Times are hard for dreamers
Little Miss Sunshine: A family who support each other with everything. And for Grampa's inappropriate dance lessons.
The Little Mermaid: A Jamaican crab singing reggae? What's not to love!
Dogma: Like Sunday school lessons but far more witty in a world where God is a skee ball fan and Salma Hayek is a stripper/muse
The secret life of Walter Mitty
2. Donnie Darko
3. Return of the Jedi
4. 2001: A Space Odyssey
5. The Birds
Cross of Iron
It's a Wonderful Life
Stand By Me
Rebecca - it's simply majestic, stellar cast acting music old world way. Just love it
Pretty woman/steel magnolias - love Julia and I could watch either any day or time ever. Never gets old.
Brief encounter- it's my Casablanca it's melancholy and so beautifully written and acted the dictation of old movies I drift off in true escapism.
Legally blonde- picks me up and proper Spurs me on when I see it or need it.
Die hard/beaches/goonies/ nemo - all different but ageless movies about dedication and overcoming the odds. And funny.
Sure I'm missing some really obvious ones in there.
Lord of the rings - The Two Towers
Star Wars - can't narrow it down to one
Last of the Mohicans
Harry Potter - I know I know, but you got to like it!
500 Days of Summer - Easily my number 1, the anti love story that I still find romantic
There's Something about Mary - watched this 100 times but still laugh
Inception - still not sure I understand it but love it anyway
The Dark Knight - best Batman Mr Bale
The Departed - clever and funny - Nicholson and Mr DiCaprio
The taking of Pelham 123 (The original one)
Pretty in Pink
Oil City Confidential
Monsieur Hulots Holiday
Dogma - can watch this anytime .... And usually do !
Escape from New York - snake plisken rocks ??
The Rocky Horror Picture Show - you just got to singalong ? plus Tim Curry ?????????
From Dusk till Dawn - awesome movie with fab music
Aliens & Alien resurrection
5. Hot Rod - A stupid movie my mates and I used to watch every odd week at 4am, drunk and just back from a club - reminds me of the good times!
4. The Lion King - Not generally a massive fan of Disney, but this is always one I can go back to!
3. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure - for more or less the same reasons as Hot Rod, but this one is actually good!
2. American Beauty - I will forever be Lester Burnham wishing I could be the real estate king (or a successful drug dealer).
1. American History X - It's just perfect.
Star Wars - 1977, the year I found what I liked in movies.
Aliens - Siggy and perennial marine Michael Biehn taking names and kicking ass although taking names was seriously overlooked in the last 40 minutes. Has no equal for edge of seat action.
Blade Runner - frankly the most perfectly shot film I've ever seen ... once the proper final final cut came out although I do have a soft spot for Mr Ford's Chandler style "bored to tears" voice over.
Matrix - ground breaking sfx, a good plot and Ted "Theodore" Logan goes ninja. Woah!
Life of Brian - exactly how I feel about religion.
Jeez, that is a very tough decision. I find it difficult to even name my favourite film but I'll give it a bash. In no particular order:
The Dark Knight
Good Will Hunting
In no particular order. And way too many good movies left out, if I done this again tomorrow I am sure I would change it.
Its a Wonderful Life
Just missing out Gladiator, Avatar, See no Evil Hear no Evil, Some Like it Hot, Alien, The Great Escape, Shawshank, Rambo, Total Recall, ET, ElF...
I could go on.....
Star Trek First Contact - There is something equally creepy and erotic about the Borg Queen.
Aliens - Guns. Xenos. Full on action. Less of the suspense Alien had but an amazing movie. I feel sorry for the Alien Queen.
Whatever Happened to Baby Jane - Camp classic. The hatred was real between the two leads.
Pretty Woman - Kissing costs extra.
Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion - I invented postits.
Young Frankenstein coz it still makes me laugh out loud and giggle once it has finished.
Finding Nemo brought enjoyable Disney back to me and makes me smile
Pirates of the Caribbean coz it's camp as knickers!
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers ..old school song and dance and I might have had a small crush on Russ Tamblin when I was a girl
The Dark Knight coz what's not to love ....the only movie to have taken Tim and I to the cinema multiple times (not admitting how many!)
1. The Jungle Book
2. The Shining
3. Schindler's List
4. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
5. Les Miserables
These are in no particular order and have had to draw lots from the list of ten! Sooo.......
Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2
Back to the Future 2
Guardians of the Galaxy
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Despicable Me 2
'In no particular order..
The Princess Bride (eighties classic)
Bridget Jones Diary (best film to watch when feeling under the weather)
Guardians of the Galaxy (it has a talking raccoon - 'nuff said)
Aladdin (I wanted to be Jasmine, don't judge me)
Howl's Moving Castle (I love how quirky it is)
The Long Good Friday
The Godfather (part 1)
My taste in movies is very eclectic... as this will probably show! In no particular order...
1. Harry Potter - The whole series if I could, purely because it makes up so much of my childhood.
2. Singin' in the Rain - I adore musicals and this is by far one of the best
3. The King's Speech - Great acting and got me interested in Speech Therapy!
4. Easy A - Emma Stone, what's not to love?
5. Beauty and the Beast - Classic Disney, and reminds me of being at my Gran's
My afternoons with Margueritte
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
In no particular order (and this will no doubt change when I remember other films!)
Warrior - Not only do you see TH with his top off, the story is pretty good as well. Brutal and well-cast.
Drive - Hardly any dialogue but so atmospheric. That car chase!
The Force Awakens - as a newly initiated Star Wars geek, I had watched the Originals and the Prequels before this came out. Hard to pick a favourite amongst them all, but i think this wins it as it's an unashamed nod to the originals whilst introducing new and developing characters.
The Commitments - Find this as funny today as I did when it came out. Most of my jokes are quoted (plagerised) from this!
Harry Potter - Regression to childhood.
1) The Shawshank Redemption
3) Silence of the lambs
5) Oceans 11
It's a Wonderful Life - A Christmas Eve must watch (once all the wrapping is done, of course)
My Name is Joe - Made me realise what a great actor Peter Mullen really is (then Sunshine on Leith killed that idea (just his singing mind)!)
Dumb and Dumber - A laugh a minute.
Back to the Future (all of them) - Who doesn't love these movies..........there's something wrong with them!
Walk the Line - The music, the story. What's not to love..
Back to the Future
The Dark Knight
It's so hard to pick just five but first is obviously going to be Pitch Perfect! Best movie ever, it's not just all lovey dovey stuff which I like! After that it's got to be,
Wreck It Ralph
