EWB's 50 Favourite Movies

The Hardcore Canuck

Recommended Posts

Voting Is Closed

So here is the official EWB's 50 Favourite Movies List thread.

Rules are as followed.

1) Pick 15 of your favourite movies. Write down said list in this thread.

2) You can vote for less then 15 movies, but no more than 15. I will stop counting votes at movie #15.

3) Each time a movie appears on a top 15 list, it recieves one vote (regardless of what number it is on the list).

4) You cannot vote for a movie more than once in your list (i.e. the first three movies on your list cannot be "Glitter"). If this happens, I will only count one vote and disregard the rest.

5) Feel free to change your list up until the end date.

6) The guesstimated close date for voting is two weeks from now, which is November 10th. If there are not enough votes by then, I will extend the voting period.

Once voting's done I will post the top 50 list, and everyone can whine and complain about what movies are/are not on the list and where they place.

Here Are My Votes

1) Pulp Fiction

2) Resivior Dogs

3) Alien

4) Donnie Darko

5) Equilibrium

6) The Boondock Saints

7) American Psycho

8) Army of Darkness

9) Cube

10) Sin City

11) American History X

12) Trainspotting

13) True Romance

14) Spaceballs

15) Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Since they're all getting one vote, I may spare me some headaches and not rank them.

My top 15, in order I thought of them:

- Slap Shot

- The Thing (John Carpenter)

- Reservoir Dogs

- Trainspotting

- (Monty Python's) Life of Brian

- The Deer Hunter

- Apocalypse Now!

- Full Metal Jacket

- Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

- What's Eating Gilbert Grape

- Clockwork Orange

- Alien

- One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest

- Unbreakable

- Mad Max 2


EDIT: replaced the Shining with Clockwork Orange.

EDIT II: Crap, I hate this. Had to edit again. I cut Stand By Me in favour of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

EDIT III: More editing. This time took out Sixth Sense and Godfather and replaced them with Mad Max 2 and Trainspotting. Blasphemous, I know.
