Topic: Your top 5 films (Read the guidelines!)

This topic is just a little survey that I like to do.  I ask this question to almost everyone I meet.  It's surprising how much you learn about people by asking this question.  *This is not a repeat of the favorite movies thread.*  I have seen that thread and it is a list of movies that extends into infinity.  I just want 5 movies and only 5.  A few quick guidelines which I find really help.
1: The films can be in any order.  If you don't have a number one film or if you have a tie between third and fourth, that's okay.  Just keep your list to five.
2: All sequels, prequels, trilogies or continuations of any sort count as one.  So don't list all the Star Wars movies as your post.  You can clarify which movies you like in a series if you want, but they all count as one.If you want to clarify which films in the family you like, go ahead and tell us.  They still just count as one.
3: These are your own personal top favorite movies.  Not the best films you have ever seen, just your favorite.  You've seen (insert multiple Oscar winner here) and think that its a great movie but you really just like (insert favorite film that nobody has ever heard of).  That's okay, and that's what I want.  So don't feel bad that Spartacus didn't make the cut while All dogs go to heaven did.
4: JUST FIVE!  I know that we all have honorable mentions, and I know that the fifth slot always difficult to place, but it must be done.  For the sake of my poll, for the sake of brevity, for the sake of humanity, just five!!!

And with that I give you my personal top five:
The Spider-Man series (All of them)
The Indiana Jones series (All of them, so far)
The LOTR trilogy (again, all)
The Rocketeer
The Nightmare before Christmas

All for one, and that one is me!

Re: Your top 5 films (Read the guidelines!)

well, i have no official list of my favorite movies. besides, this has been done already? i know there was a favorite movie/tv show thread, so i guess that counts as the same thing?

Gaah! I just said this wasn't a copy of the other Movie thread! If their is another "top 5 movie" thread I apologize.  But I've only seen one that has "Favorite Movie" list that are ten to thirty movies long.  Read my post!  I had this same problem with my Gordon vs Fett vs Master Chief thread.  Read the stinking first post, dang it!

All for one, and that one is me!

As I said, all series count as one, so Star Wars (I-III) and Star Wars (IV-VI) should be combined.

And yes, I know that the 5th is the hardest to place, so take your time in getting to it.

All for one, and that one is me!

Re: Your top 5 films (Read the guidelines!)

1. Star Wars (like AA's preferences)
2. Indiana Jones trilogy
3. pretty much anything by Steven Spielberg (this covers a lot of movies)
4. the matrix trilogy, v for vendetta
5. Lord of the Rings trilogy (Hobbit doesn't come out until 2010, but i will wait)

Ok That makes the list easier, but I had some logic to why i ordered it that way. The two trilogies differ in style and I have a *slight* preference to the prequiles (spelling sorry) over the orignial trilogy. In the nre revised standard:
1. Star Wars
2. Lord of the Rings
3. Jaws
4. Jurassic Park
5. Clueless

Re: Your top 5 films (Read the guidelines!)

1. The Seven Samurai (Akira Kurosawa)
2. π (Darren Aronofsky)
other three:   Pulp Fiction
                   The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
                   Ghost Dog

(The first two are my favorite movies. The others are some of my favs. Ok, don't shoot me, it's not the Star Wars movies that I adore, it's the universe, the setting that I wish I were part of)

Re: Your top 5 films (Read the guidelines!)

Don't think I can make a list.  Been watching too many movies for too long, and couldn't narrow it down that much.  Was raised watching OLD stuff like John Wayne, Cagny, Bogart, etc; 30's and 40's movies mostly, with a lot from the 50's and 60's thrown in.  Great stuff

But am also into the modern movies as well. 

War, Action, SciFi, are probably my favorite genres, but I'm into a little of everything

Re: Your top 5 films (Read the guidelines!)

Star Wars series (obvious 4-6 preference)
Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Memento
Indiana Jones Trilogy (2 wasn't that great)
Lucky number sleven

Good... Bad... I'm the one with the gun.

I'm pretty sure that not all of Steven Spielberg's films are a continuation in a series.  If you said "An American tale" and included "Fivel goes west" that would be a series.  But "just about everything by Steven Spielberg" is NOT a series.  V for vendetta and the Matrix are also not of the same series.  So pick ONE film by Spielberg and EITHER V for vendetta OR The Matrix trilogy.  That goes for you too, Terra.  Sorry if I sound miffed, but I EXPLICITLY stated that I wanted just five movies.  So if you don't have a fifth or some are tied, wait before responding.  Please.

All for one, and that one is me!

Re: Your top 5 films (Read the guidelines!)

5. Any movie with either Jack Nicholson, Christopher Lloyd, Anthony Hopkins or Gary Oldman in it. Just love these actors and most of their movies, had to put them here, so let's say it's my #5.

That is not a series, hence the appeal to recheck your post.  Everyone else (except Fett_II) kept their posts by my guidelines.  Draco's "Alice Cooper concert films" I count as one since I think that they are all kind of a series.  If there not, then Draco and I both goofed, and I apologize.   But currently your last selection isn't in any way definable to a series.  Just pick one film for the last slot and you're good.

All for one, and that one is me!

Re: Your top 5 films (Read the guidelines!)

1, Star Wars saga
2, Bladerunner
3, Indiana Jones films
4, Harry Potter series
5, The life of Brian
