No one here has seen swimming with sharks???

here is my list, with some quotes (the quotes may not be exact)

1) The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (The world is divided into two categories, there are those who have a loaded gun and those who dig ... you dig)

2) The godfather (all the serie)

3) Swimming with sharks (Serve my needs, protect my interests, unless you wanna sell shoes for the rest of your life) (you have no brain, what you think means nothing, what you feel means nothing, shut up, listen and learn)

4) Pulp fiction (what country do you come from? I dare you, I double dare you mother **** say what again one more time!)

5) Gladiators (My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius)

These are my personal favorites and not necessarily what I'd consider the top 5 movies of all time (which is why Godfather 2 isn't on the list!)

1. Almost Famous (director's cut)
2. Shawshank Redemption
3. Lord of the Ring trilogy
4. Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
5. This is Spinal Tap

Honorable mentions to Whale Rider, Joe vs. the Volcano, and Braveheart! :D

Darren Aronofsky movies:
in order:

Requiem for a Dream (Cost of addiction)
Black Swan (Cost of obtaining perfection)
The Wrestler (Sacrifices to find lost glory)
The Fighter (Redemption, achieving in the face of adversity, overcoming past and present circumstance)
The Fountain (Losing loved ones)

Don't watch all at once, it will make you suicidal. I mean, his happiest movie is "The Fighter", which looks like the little mermaid if you compare it to Requiem for a Dream. Dark powerful stuff.

Also, another note, Lux Aeterna (song from RFAD soundtrack) makes anything 100000x dramatic. You could watch someone peel a banana in a park, but with this music it makes it the most epic banana being peeled ever. You've heard this song before, but link below. It builds until like 2:20.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKLpJtvzlEI

Since these are miniseries, they cannot make the list, but I would just like to mention:

BAND OF BROTHERS! (Best media portrayal about WW2 ever. Rivals Schindler's list in quality. Steven Spielberg had a huge part of the making so heh, what can you expect I guess...)
Spartacus: Blood and Sand (All you Gladiator/Braveheart/300 fans, watch this, its like 300, but with actually compelling characters, plotlines, schemes and twists. Fantastic dialog too)
The Pacific (Loved the character focus, and also the fact that 1/10 films are about European theatre. I like the increased effort to look at the Pacific Theatre)

I don't know if any of you guys have ever seen the film "the way back" as it was only recently released with colin farrell and a few other well-known actors but it is definitely, top rated, of all time, on my list of favorite movies. very inspiring.

My favorite director too, humphy.
Have you watched Pi.

"Pi cost only $60,000 to make, most of which was raised in the form of individual $100 contributions from the director's friends and family. When it was later bought by Artisan Entertainment (for $1,000,000.), each contributor got back a $150 return on their investment."
