1. Shawshank redemption (1994) is my absolute favorite!
2. Idiocracy (2006)
3. Barfuss (2005)
4. Tukšā ķivere (1971) (Latvian cartoon - extremely short, but really great!)
5. Ceplis (1972) - classic of Latvian filmography...

Of course I like many other movies, this is my spontaneous selection!

Oh, Latvian, I just loved Idiocracy! I substitute teach as a side job and have had so many students who were proud of their ignorance, just like the folks in this movie. Idiocracy is not just entertainment, it serves as either a warning or a prophecy, depending on whether or not enough of the population chooses to think or be stupid.

That movie had some great lines between the protagonist, named Not Sure, and his lawyer, Frito Pendejo, like, "You went to law school at Costco?" The reply was, "Yeah, my dad was alumni so he was able to pull some strings." I laugh every time I think of the trial when Not Sure, says to his lawyer, "You gotta tell them I'm innocent!" His attorney replies, "That's not what the other lawyer said!" The prosecuting lawyer's argument for the defendant's guilt was, "Your honor, just look at him, man." Dialogue like that is pure gold.

You, Robert Paulson are right – Idiocracy is very great movie… I've watched many times. My wife cannot understand why I like it! \:\) But I and my son enjoy it very much... I even got in Latvian, prior I watched in English and German, but for me the best is Russian version. Russian language is famous for many strong and primitive slang words - it's the best!

Maybe, who haven’t seen this move I can put small intro: Joe Bauers, who was "average American", is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes 500 years in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed-down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive…

1) Akira

2) Repo Man (the 1984 cult classic with Emelio Estevez)

3) GoodFellas

4) Tron

5) Underworld

They are in no particular order, I just numbered them as I thought of them.

Schindler's List

Full Metal Jacket

Lost Highway

Rampage

I Saw The Devil (2010) - Korean. I enjoy a good foreign film; and this is definitely one I'd recommend to any, who also do. Rather than turning in the killer to authorities; one seeks out his revenge himself. When you think it's over, he's no where near done giving the killer a taste of his own medicine. Definitely a worthwhile watch.

- The good, the bad and the ugly (1966)
- Young Frankenstein (1974)
- The others (2001)
- Star Wars (old trilogy)
- eXistenZ (1999)

Oh, Deep Time, Silence of the Lambs and Seven, those two are such quotable movies! "Having a library card doesn't make him Yoda!" from Brad Pitt was memorable. Anthony Hopkins surprises with, "Don't test me! A census taker tried to test me once. I ate his liver with some Fava beans and a nice Chianti! <hisses in delight>" Andy wrote about The Last Samurai. I was so delighted with that film in the theater. It was tragic watching the samurais get mowed down by the machine gun and how it foreshadowed Imperial Japan's change in foreign policy.

I have to say in passing that I like "Strychnine"'s icon, which reminds me of the famous One-Eyed Cat of Mr. Lucky.

Thank you, Doctor. I've never had the occasion to watch Mr Lucky, I think it has never been translated in my language, but I like that winking cat! \:\)

I'd like too to add a movie to my list, although it is complete yet: the Monty Python's Meaning of Life (1983). I always loved the galaxy song .

I added already the list of my five favorites, but these two, Chemical I enjoyed too... The Matrix has got many awards and nominations and seems good and really successful commercial project. I like very much 'When Nietzsche Wept' because the movie is based on the novel When Nietzsche Wept and I read the book before I watched the movie! It was great! Sometimes I read book which inspired film makers after the watching, this was great exception - I did it before. I enjoy this and other works of Irvin David Yalom. I'm going to read, when I'll get free time, his newest work - 'The Spinoza Problem'.

Robert de Niro's meditation on the human soul while shelling an egg with his taloned fingernails has to bee one of cinema's all-time classic scenes. On the other hand, I kept wanting to throw Mickey Rourke in a bathtub and get him fresh clothes.
