Terminator 2.

Gladiator.

Saving Private Ryan.

The Prestige and Memento. Also, Se7en.

Big Nolan fan if you couldn't tell.

if you enjoyed The Prestige, you might want to watch "The Illusionist (2006)" if you haven't seen it already

Fuck me, how did I forgot the first Matrix film? The second one was very good and I enjoy it, but I wouldn't say it is one of the greatest of all time.

I'd also add Jurassic Park to my list. I'll go and edit :)

Best documentary: The Bridge

A documentary that hit me hard.

Very true, same here. One of the quotes in my signature is from that movie.

I love Lost in Translation. There's no movie I'd wanna watch more than it.

Memento (I love everything from Nolan)

Fight Club (Fincher - his movies are amazing)

Bronson (Tom Hardy's performance is 10/10)

12 Monkeys, K-PAX, Se7en, Terminator 2, Mad Max, Dark City, Moon, The Man from Earth, Amores Perros,

Total Recall (1990), 21 Grams, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, City of God, 4 Rooms (Tarantino), Adaptation,

Demolition Man, Fifth Element, La Jetée, Rush, Enter the Void, Jarhead,

Also if you ask me, I'd put on the list all Star Wars and Star Trek films, Interstellar, Serenity, Matrix, Robocop (1987)

All worth watching :D

"Feeling like he was loved and in love was gonna save him." ;) Thought something was familiar from you signature.

Then there was this part, right at the beginning I think, where the kitesurfers were talking about it. One of them said something along the lines "Surfing is like a celebration of life for me, but for this man it was the lowest day of his life"... or something like that. And it made me think about how lonely and isolated people can be, even though we live in an overpopulated world. And the ending scene of the man in black with long hair jumping off the bridge, he was talked about the whole film, you started relating to him, and then you see him splashing in the water with birds singing and peace all around and his grandmother talking about him being "released from pain by pain". And then you had the meth addict who got saved and talked about his wife cheating on him several times in a very emotional way.

This doc is the main reason why the Golden Gate Bridge is my nr.1 place I want to visit one day.

Excellent documentary in the sense that it explored the darkest matters of human kind. Of course it would be better if there was no reason to make such films, but this is not the world we live in and I'm glad somebody made the effort to bring very important problems in life to a wider audience, who maybe had no clue.

Another excellent documentary touching similar subjects is Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple. Gives you an idea of how cults work and how people go to extremes to find a place where they can belong to.

Don't think there is a best movie, different people seek different things in a film.

That said, to add to the already brilliant films posted:

The Green Mile

The Pianist

Gladiator

Trainspotting

12 years a slave

Greatest? No idea.

But high rated by me:

The usual suspects

Shawshank redemption

The godfather

Dude that's like my top 3 as well.

Add in Goodfellas and Godfather II et voila

One that has found no mention yet - The Silence Of The Lambs.

His recent, Nightcrawler, is also great. Check that out if you haven't I'm also a big Jake Gyllenhaal fan.

End of Watch, too! The chemistry Jake and Michael Pena display between them is something else.
