I somehow know lots about movies, even though i've not seen a lot of them.

Legally Blonde does not belong on that list. It is Awesome. mad

On my list so far:

Apocalypse Now
Planet of the Apes (original)
Casablanca
2001: A Space Odyssey (2010 any good?)
Evil Dead

I've tried on two occasions to watch Blade Runner, failed both times...

More Classics plz

Did you watch the original or director's cut..? The original version makes no sense.

Directors cut... the one on the 10 disc edition.

I really wasn't in the mood to watch it. Was really tired and easily distracted. Me and my friend were watching it, we ended up doing stuff on out laptops, then noticed that it had finished...

I will try again.

Ok, fine. Some favourite classics:
Citizen Kane (obviously)
Crimes and Misdemeanours/ Manhattan/ Annie Hall
Brazil
Singin' in the Rain
The Graduate
A Clockwork Orange
The Sound of Music

All of which regularly make those "best film ever ever" lists.

You're one of those folks who prefer Manhattan, yes? Perhaps I ought to see it again...

Also, why is Terminator 2 ranked higher than the original? What am I missing?

I never got that, the first is clearly the better film, the second just has flashy special effects... a terminator who doesn't terminate people is lacking a certain something.

I don't agree, the plot of the second one seemed more thought-out to me. Of course, they threw that out the window with the sequels, but still.

Also, did you see the directors' cut? For some reason they cut out one very important scene in particular - sarah and john opening arnie's head to basically turn off write-protection on his program, allowing him to learn rather than simply obey.

Gopher and everyone else are right.  Judgment Day was better than the first film for a number of reasons which I will now list:
  • The whole "learning to not be a killing machine" thing
  • Robert Patrick's super evilness
  • Moar motorcycles!
  • Never trust cops; trust burly biker dudes
  • No Bill Paxton
  • Special effect goodness
  • Linda Hamilton somehow being the manliest member of the cast

Seriously...? There're people out there who think the first Terminator is the best..?

The first one is a reasonably good '80s exploitation flick, but T2 is one of best action movies ever made.

...and the third one is a gigantic pile of horse shit, which I hate and wish it would die in a hole somewhere and be eaten by rats with AIDS.

(2010 any good?)

It certainly makes the ending of 2001 make more sense.

Annie Hall > Manhattan

Judgement Day > Terminator

And I suggest whoever watch Garden State.

I'm adding Alien to my list. I realised i don't think i've seen it all the way through yet.

Also, any aussies suggest any of those Netflix type things? Think i might subscribe and put in my list of movies so they come to me at random times.

I do the Canadian Netflix thing "Zip". It's awesome for selection, it just takes forever to mail you the movies. But it's the only way I can see all the movies I want to.

Get in your car and drive to your local independent video hire place. It's the only way you can flex your awesome powers to select movies endorsed by every other person ever. It's great getting the nod from some pretentious video store clerk- their approval will make your life.

You're one of those folks who prefer Manhattan, yes? Perhaps I ought to see it again...

Yes, and I am entirely correct.

Annie Hall > Manhattan

I said correct.
