I saw this on IMDB, and even though the premise seems childish, I don't really think it is and I think this could be something interesting. The name of the game is to list your top ten or twenty favourite films, and the user below must rate your taste and state what they like and what they don't like about that member's particular list., which hopefully will grant some interesting discussions.

So, I'll post my top twenty films and we'll see how it goes.

1.) Inception
2.) The Dark Knight
3.) Batman Begins
4.) Gladiator
5.) The Shawshank Redemption
6.) Saving Private Ryan
7.) Memento
8.) The Godfather
9.) The Godfather: Part II
10.) GoodFellas
11.) The Departed
12.) 2001: A Space Odyssey
13.) Pulp Fiction
14.) Fight Club
15.) Schindler's List
16.) The Silence of the Lambs
17.) Apocalypse Now
18.) Full Metal Jacket
19.) One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
20.) Inglorious Basterds

I still need to touch up this list. but I'm happy with it at the moment.

I think it's 22nd on my list, I'm not sure. Plus, I'm still undecided as to whether it deserves a straight ten or a nine, it's difficult to place it.

It deserves an 11/10 at least.
