top ten movie list

Whether curled up on the couch on a rainy afternoon, or lying in bed with an iPad, everyone has a film that just resonates with who they are and how they view the world.

1.  Ocean’s 11 – I love a good caper and this movie tops the list!  Great ensemble cast, uber cool soundtrack, and amazing editing giving this film a real ‘rat-pack’ vibe.

2.  Raiders of the Lost Ark – Who didn’t want to be Indiana Jones growing up?! Just a classic adventure film with a smattering of humour thrown in for good measure.

3.  Casablanca – This film is simply a classic that every film aficionado loves.  Bogart is superb and it has one of the most often mis-quoted movie lines of all time.

4.  Forrest Gump – Great story, great soundtrack, great visuals, and great cast!  Plus I love the cameo of Elvis and the handful of Presidents.

5.  The Shawshank Redemption – I don’t think there has ever been a more powerful film in terms of the story, the setting and the cast.

6.  Star Wars – Who doesn’t love this first (original) episode of the most amazing space saga ever told on the cinema screen!

7.  The Italian Job – Another great caper movie but whether you enjoy the original or the remake, both versions have the same appeal in terms of entertainment value.

8.  2001: A Space Odyssey – Kubrick’s stunning space epic based on a short story from Arthur C Clarke is as relevant today as it was when it was first released.

9.  Monty Python and the Holy Grail – Ni!    …enough said 😉

10. Good Will Hunting – Great story, intense dialogue, and Robin Williams.  What more is there to say?
