I can’t believe I never posted in this thread. It has been around for ages.

Hackers (1995)
Cult classic in my industry. Purely fictional in what they do, but it is still a movie I can watch any day of the week.

The Way of the Gun (2000)
Nothing beats the opening lines in this movie. Brings me back to so many nights when I was out with my friends causing trouble.

Running Scared (2006)
Once this movie gets rolling, it takes you on a ride. A valuable lesson is learned from this movie too; never let your kids see where you put your guns.

Seven Samurai (1954)
Absolutely brilliant movie. The anime series off-shoot of this film is pretty good too.

Half-Baked (1998)
Still my all time favorite comedy film. It really shouldn’t need any kind of introduction. If you haven’t seen this movie by now, jump off a very tall bridge.

There are a lot more I love, but those 5 are definitely my top choices.

Well I have a large film collection, so naming a top 5 is not something I can do easily - but off the top of my head:

Halloween (the original John Carpenter version).

Wonderful camera work makes you feel as if the events are happening to you personally. Excellent use of sound and silence. Donald Pleasance puts in a stellar performance. Jamie Lee Curtis screams her lungs out. And last but not least - THAT music. A faultless fright machine from start to finish. My DVD of this comes off the shelf towards the end of every October without fail.

The Matrix

A cracking action film packed with philosophical ideas. The ultimate comic book film – pause it at any time and the frame you stop on can be a comic illustration.

The Thing (Mr. Carpenter again)

This is in my opinion the best base under siege film ever made. Fantastic claustrophobic tension and some truly mortifying practical effects. Dum Dum. Dum Dum. Dum Dum…

The Shining

One of the creepiest films I have ever seen. Kubrick’s floating camera, Jack Nicholsons performance, the ominous music and the slow pace all combine to create a film that seeps into your subconscious and stays there. Fancy a nice bath anyone?

Paranormal Activity

A lot of people trashed this film when it came out, but I lapped it up.
This film gave me insomnia the evening after watching it, and for someone who has watched a lot of horror, that is quite some achievement.
This film scares you using methods that have almost been forgotten about – suggestion, suspense, and through very effective use of sound. The monster that makes the noise in the dark off screen is always much more frightening than the monster on screen.
Truly chilling - blows all the recent splatter gore horror films out of the water.

Not to nitpick but neither of those films were by Quentin Tarantino. Hell Ride was sold under the "presented by Quentin Tarantino" banner just like Hostel but it was pretty much just paid for by Tarantino. Hell ride was written and directed by Larry Bishop.

And Oliver Stone directed Natural Born Killers. Tarantino did write the original script but Stone rewrote it and Tarantino states very little of what he wrote was perserved.

Again not to nitpick, I'm just a big Tarantino fan.
