1. The Burbs
2. Conan the Barbarian
3. Diggstown
4. Into the Night
5. Last of the Mohicans
6. Day of the Dead
7. Temple of Doom
8. Innerspace
9. Big Trouble in Little China
10.Cat's Eye

Its really hard to put into a list of top ten, the next time I watch somthing like a Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, Bloodsport, Willow, Three O' Clock High, or a Quiggly Down Under I could change my mind about one of the ones on the list. But I will say that the my number one will always be the burbs, for whatever reason the movie really does it for me

I can't do it. I simply can't boil it down to ten. There are about 50 films I would want to list, and any omission would be a sin.

Helen, I know you think you can get away with that but I think some people might notice that you have listed 15 films. Nice try though. Ultra shifty IMO  -

If you can count a series of films as one, I would say the Indiana Jones Trilogy.

You know of all the ones you guys mentioned I've yet to see

Casablanca
Citizen Kane
Blue Velvet
2001: A Space Odyssey
The Third Man
Sunrise
The Wages of Fear
Dracula: Prince Of Darkness
Brief Encounter
Pan's Labyrinth
Double Indemnity
The Conversation
The Wicker Man (1973) though saw Nic Cage one and wish i hadn't
Rumble Fish
Funny Girl
Dead Of Night (1945)
Saw the first Phantasm but none of the others

Pretty sure I saw all of yours The Pyromantic
7 Faces of Dr. Lao is that the one where the guy plays Dr. Lau and all the attractions in his carnival?

Citizen Kane is getting alot of mentions and I know it is highly regarded, but IMO it's absolute vomit.

Jack, BTW, I love The Wicker Man '73. Fantastic movie. I have not seen the remake, but I read somewhere that it is now considered an unintentional comedy.

I cannot put it down to ten movies but if I did it would look like nobody elses. That's for sure. Caddyshack would be number one for starters. Weekend at Bernies might make the list too. Season of the Witch might make it if I was to do a top 5,000 list though  -

The Wicker Man '73 is a justly recognized masterpiece. The remake is probably one of the worst remakes of any film ever. And another bad Nic Cage film...

By the way, my Top 10 list is serious and not just put together to be a contrarian. I want to beat the drum to folks on here to move a little out of their comfort zone of yet another viewing of "Can't Buy Me Love" and just check out some of these amazing films, even if they aren't from the 80s. It may look like an off-putting high-brow list, but I think that many of you will find these to be great, enthralling, and entertaining films, even if "Sunrise" is a silent film (but it looks like it could've been filmed this past year) and "The Wages of Fear" has subtitles.

I know my list sounds prototypical of this site but these kind of movies are the movies that I really do get the most out of. Or at least have got the most out of over the years.
