    First of all I'll say that Children of Men was a very good movie. Excellent camera work, especially in some of the scenes it was from a first person angle and made me feel like I was right there. And second, I believe someone mentioned Hard Candy as one of theirs. That one is very good too, I didn't know what to expect, and I guess I would describe it as horrifying.

    by the way, has anyone seen any of Clint Eastwoods new films? I've been hearing nothing but good things about them.

    My 15:
    Lord of the Rings
    Starwars
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    Adaptation
    Casablanca
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    Full Metal Jacket
    The Shining
    Amelie
    Life is Beautiful
    Night of the Living Dead
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    Cinema Paradiso
    Silence of the Lambs
    it's hard to list just 15, so as the 15th I'll list the one's I've seen by Martin Scorsese: Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, The Aviator, The Departed, Gangs of New York, Casino, and Bringing Out the Dead

    Hard Candy was tough to watch. I felt for the guy, but sadly he deserved his fate in the end. Very good ending, but I didn't like it personally.

    As for the Newer Eastwood films I've seen Million Dollar Baby which was excellent & Flags of our Fathers which was ok. Supposedly Letters from Iwo is better, but I've yet to see it.

    Damn I forgot another few from my original list that are definetly up there:

    Devils Rejects
    Sunshine of Spotless Mind
    Monty Python Holy Grail

    Has anyone seen The Science of Sleep. I thought this movies was just amazing, visually stunning and had a light hearted fun story. Cant wait for the next movie from the director, it stars Jack Black. Its called "Be Kind and Rewind", this movie probably has one of the funnies and original stories ever. Check the synopsis on imdb.com
