    A very well made movie. Poignant and moving moments yet manages to be funny too. Coogan is so good in this. He steals the show. Judy Dench gave a stellar performance too. 8.5/10

    Every film is amazing? Lol good for you

    I thought 2012 was utter tripe. Taken was good - check out Man from Nowhere which is a Korean movie similar to taken. I think it's better.

    Frozen was fun and had catchy songs. Not sure it's a classic though.

    Narrowing this down to 10 films was so difficult! But I'd have to go with:

    1. In the Mood for Love
    2. The Wind Rises
    3. Spirited Away
    4. Love Exposure
    5. Battle Royale
    6. Let the Right One In
    7. House of Flying Daggers
    8. Million Dollar Baby
    9. Suspiria
    10. One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest

    Rather than go for a favourite 10, here's a random stab at 'must see' films for each decade since the 40's (and no, I wasn't around for the early ones). Obviously lots of terrific films have missed the cut, and this type of list could easily be repeated multiple times:

    1940's - Citizen Kane, honourable mention to It's a Wonderful Life
    1950's - Some Like it Hot, honourable mention to 12 Angry Men
    1960's - Psycho, honourable mention to 2001: A Space Odyssey
    1970's - The Godfather, honourable mention to (so many to choose from) ... Alien
    1980's - Blade Runner (could easily have picked one of three Harrison Ford films), honourable mention to Back to the Future
    1990's - The Matrix, honourable mention to American Beauty
    2000's - The LOTR trilogy (I will cheat and count them as one), honourable mention to The Dark Knight
    2010's - Obviously too early to have any real perspective on the current decade, but let's go with Inception as an early pacesetter.

    As there's no animated movie in the list, let's throw in The Incredibles. And as there's no sports movie in the list, let's add Bull Durham.

    Nice approach! I particularly love the honorable mention of 12 Angry Men. One of my favorite films ever.

    BUT, 40s should have been The Third Man. Much better movie than Citizen Kane (which imo is a bit overrated, I didn't find it that enjoyable to watch).

    Since this says "must see" and not "best" I will choose films that from my preferences one should see:

    Honorable Mention: Some Like It Hot - Monroe, Curtis and Lemmon in an incredible film, if you haven't seen it you can't call yourself a film lover.

    Leon the Professional (young Natalie Portman and Jean Reno, quality)
    The Dark Knight
    The Blind Side
    The Third Man
    The Shawshank Redemption
    The Godfather
    The Intouchables (in French but I urge everyone to watch, extremely funny and emotional, based on a true story)
    Once Upon a Time in the West (representative of all Westerns)
    Silver Linings Playbook

    Now I left out a lot that are "better", but I think for pure enjoyment these are higher. E.g. Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Oldboy, Fight Club, Memento,The Silence of the Lambs, just to mention a few of the top of my head, are all superb films, but I think some of the above are more "feel good", if that makes sense.

    Yep, Some Like it Hot is an absolute classic, as you can see it was my choice for the 1950's and really should be on everyone's 'must see' list.

    Leon's a great film and could easily have made my 'honourable mention' choice for the 1990's.

    Great picks.

    In no particular order, off the top of my head:

    White Chicks
    The Usual Suspects
    Training Day (OR ANYTHING WITH DENZEL WASHINGTON IN. Denzel is THE MAN.)
    Finding Nemo
    The Matrix
    Inception
    Toy Story
    American Gangster
    Law Abiding Citizen
    Addams Family


    Generally, I love films. I'll watch them all, but my main love is action. Watch anything with De Niro, Denzel Washington and Gerard Butler in. They never disappoint!
