THANKS FOR ALL THE AWESOME BOOK RECS, GUYS!

i have a pile of them right next to me :3 promised myself i'll read at least ten before the year ends. some of them are on my uni's obligatory reading list, so that's not going to be a problem.

BUT

can't live on books alone, so how about a list of movies that everybody should see?

here are two lists:

100 Movies to See Before You Die: The All-Time Greats
100 Movies to See Before You Die: The Modern Classics

comments? suggestions?

I've only seen 25 out of the 100 movies on the first list :P
These are the ones I can think of now that aren't on either lists:

Boondock Saints (There's also a sequel to that one (Boondock Saints: All Saints Day), but won't recommend you watch that one unless you're a big fan of the first.)

Hero (An absolutely fantastic Chinese movie)

Gladiator

Empire of the Sun

Rush Hour

Danny the Dog

Labyrinth

X-men (possibly all 3?)

Spiderman (at least 1 & 2)

Hotel Rwanda

Dogma

Constantine

MIB (also, MIIB)

The Last Samurai

Minority Report

The Scorpion King

Sense & Sensibility (With Alan Rickman)

Robin Hood: Men In Tights

Equibrillium (Christian Bale)

Last of the Mohicans

In the Name of the Father

Leon

Hard Candy

Taken

The Departed

The Other Guys

V For Vendetta

A Beautiful Mind

Iron Man (1 & 2)

3:10To Yuma

Master And Commander

Shrek

American Beauty

K-Pax

Gran Torino

The General (Buster Keaton)

I may have gone a bit overboard.. I'm sure you've seen most of these already :P

Do yourself a favor and watch Wristcutters: A Love Story

Also, Stranger Than Fiction with Will Ferrell

They are not my absolute favorite (Amelie), but they are both in my top five and I didn't see either of them on either list.

Oh, oh oh! And Arsenic and Old Lace, because that's a fucking classic and why isn't it on the first list?!
Also, someone should write aPinto- fic where Zach plays Cary Grant's character and Chris can be his lovely bride. XD
