  7. Tony says:

    Wow nice review i dont think ive seen half of those movies 😛 better start watching some of them

  8. Sean says:

    I’d recommend Spy Game (Brad Pitt, Robert Redford) and 12 Monkeys, they are very good. V for Vendetta, thought that would be a little higher on the list!

  9. Stuart says:

    I personally disagree with 70% of this list.

  10. sarah says:

    Fraserr!! :]

    lol, dont know whats going on there.

  12. Josiah says:

    I love this list!
    I’ve seen probably 35 of the 50 here. hehe.

    And I’m pleased Reservoir Dogs managed to scrape in.
    hehe.

    Keep up the fine reviewing work, sah!

  13. Sasha says:

    As if Insomnia isn’t on the list!!! I reckon it’s probably better than Memento (maybe)…

  14. Ale says:

    How can u not have Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas as one of ur top films. If u havnt watched it u have too cheers

    awesome site btw cant wait for more!

  15. Carl says:

    Where is Donnie Darko?

  16. joey-joe-joe says:

    pretty good list.
    V for Vendetta! should be on there..and in the top 50
    but good list.

  17. leo says:

    no snatch?

  18. twelve says:

    O.M.G, Fraser, there is no mention of “Training Day” did you not like it? reasons…

  19. lindsay says:

    i like ur list, but there is one slight problem, no kurosawa films
    u put up starwars and yet u dont put the movie that INSPIRED george lucas 2 create starwars (the movie is ‘the hidden fortress’)
    and u put up a fist full of dollars, but u dont put the movie that it is unnofficially remade from (‘Yojimbo’)
    let alone his BEST movies which include ‘the 7 samurai’, ‘throne of blood’ and ‘rashomon’

    • twelve says:

      fair comment I’m a big fan of the Kurosawa films also, no foreign films of any sort Fraser, get on it. Check out Crows: Zero directed by Takashi Miike, interesting and good watch!

  20. lindsay says:

    yeah ive seen crow zero and crow zero 2
    but prefer ong bak as its more martial arts rather then just brawling

  21. neha says:

    feels lyk u hav added all da muvis u seen … not da top ones…..though sum r really kewl but i didnt find muvis lyk ‘a few gud men’..’ freedom writr’.. ‘basic’…’buket list’…’bourne ‘ nd ‘ die hard’ series..’ into da wild’..’remmbr da titans’..’longest yard..’octobr sky’…’12 angry men’… ‘life is butifl’….’da butiful mind’…. watch dese if u havnt

  22. Kezzzaaaaa says:

    A few outs that I’d have

    Out: A man for all seasons – sunshine – panic room – star wars & return of the jedi (seen it many times, sorry i just cant get into it at all.)

    And what would i replace them with?

    In: american beauty – V for vendetta – water boy – fearless – Red Cliff – the green mile!

    but man thats a good list that isnt filled with utter shite. even though i voted those movies out im aware of how truly good they are!

  23. Kezzzaaaaa says:
