    Just back from the movies (haha, After the Wedding today), pretty powerful stuff from Julianne Moore and not what I was expecting with that title, as I went in totally blind. Really enjoyed it.

    I would rate all the films on that list as good, cool to see a Yorgos Lanthimos in there too, one of my favourite writer/directors. Have you seen any others?

    I could never do a top 100, far too hard, so I take my hat off to you. Only thing I do know is that Pulp Fiction would be at the top, then it gets a bit hazy with Alien(s) right up there too, with The Shining, 2001 and then it's get far too tough.

    The only film on that list I haven't seen (or I don't think so) is I Spit On Your Grave, so I'll have to look out for that. I'd have True Romance up a bit higher as well

    TCM, what a classic, I'm going to watch that tonight now.

    Lol - they weren't in any particular order, save that The Shining is probably still my favourite film of all time, so it's No1 slot is accurate

    I spit on Your Grave [the original] is a classic, and rather grim and violent!

    The Lobster is I believe the only YL film I've seen, but as that was so intriguing (especially the cock-teasing scene with the maid), I'd be keen to see more... Yeah, TCM is awesome! I'm off now to eat some 'head cheese'

    Haha - yeah, I especially loved it second time round on 4K Blu-ray, through the home-cinema system - the sound effects were stunning!!

    Christ on a bike - it would take me a year to even come up with my top 20 movies of all time so respect Marco for putting that together. Some great movies in there for sure. I’ll come back in 2025 with my top 100!

    They're all good, although I haven't seen Jacob's Ladder - you mean the one out this year?

    The Omen and Papillon should've been in there, so now amended! Twelve Monkeys should've ticked the right boxes, but it was too complicated for me...
