    Having seen lots of threads asking about worst films/music etc I thought I'd ask about favourite films. And since noone ever manages to just pick one favourite I thought I'd go for 10. I'm looking for inspiration for films to watch.

    I'll give my top 10 (in no particular order):
    1)Once Upon A Time in Mexico
    2)Wedding Date
    3)21
    4)Meet Joe Black
    5)Moulin Rouge
    6)A Knight's Tale
    7)Bobby
    8)Breakfast Club
    9)Italian Job
    10)Anchorman

    There are tons of other films that I like, it's difficult to narrow it down, even to 10!

    Eternal sunshine of the Spotless Mind??? ... oooo I did NOT like that film! I don't mean this to sound rude, it's a sincere question ... what is its appeal?

    A lot of these movies I didn't like at allllllllll, let alone put them on my top 10. Guess it shows we all have different tastes. I'm still working on my list smile
