    5 favourite Terry Gilliam-directed films:

    1. Brazil
    2. Tideland
    3. The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
    4. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    5. 12 Monkeys

    Tideland is the one I'm more inclined to re-watch, but it can't beat the spectacle of Brazil's dystopian bureaucracy.

    Was directed solely by Terry Jones, otherwise it might've topped my list.

    The new Feg is inconsistent for me, but that's one of the three songs that stand out as good/unusual/weird for me (along with The Cynic and Discourse on Equality).

    Motorbreath > Jump in the Fire > Hit the Lights > The Four Horsemen > Whiplash

    Probably. Funny how Jamez and Dave wrote two of their very best and most instantly-memorable riffs before Metallica even existed. If the studio version of Phantom Lord didn't the extraneous bullshit added it'd be in there, it's kind of a Priest ripoff even still but one of the best in its class. Whole album is really enjoyable though, overlength the only problem, No Remorse and Seek & Destroy should both be 2 minutes shorter as well.

    Interesting. I will second The Godfather trilogy. I'm surprised you didnt have the first three Alien movies in there as that was essentially a self-contained trilogy too. Even though I don't like Alien 3, the other two carry the day.

    Linklater's Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight would make my list.

    Original Star Wars trilogy (duh).

    Last would be Park Chan-Wook's Revenge trilogy: Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, Sympathy for Mr Vengeance and Oldboy.

    Leone and Argento would be HMs.
