FridayFix • Top 5 Movie picks

This week the Lair of Døøm is a pit of drywall repair and construction. It’s been pretty distracting to say the least. And loud. It’s been very loud.

So today we’re blowing off some steam and bringing you a fun, off-the-cuff discussion where Scott and A each pick their Top 5 Movies. No research, no internets to help us remember the details. Just right here, right now, what do each of our Top 5 Movies lists look like.

    With there being soooo many great and wonderful movies out there; when I am asked this kind of question I think of the movies that I could watch any time they come on. Now these may not be my absolute top 5 favorite; they are my top 5 watchable movies.

    #1 Dredd
    Relatively new movie, but just highly entertaining and I could watch over and over again.

    #2 The Great Eascape
    Great all star cast, but long run time. Anytime in highschool or college I would turn this 3 hour masterpiece on while I studied and it was like an old friend.

    #3 McClintock!
    #4 Inside Man
    #5 This last one is kind of a cheat, but its my list. Any Toho studios Godzilla movie (with a few exceptions)

    Just my 2 cents; thanks for reading.
    **Honorable mentions:Super Size Me, 1950s Scifi

    My top 5 would be:

    1) Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back
    2) Dogma
    3) Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Extended Edition
    4) Pulp Fiction
    5) Memento
    ** Honorable Mentions: Fight Club, Chasing Amy, & The Fifth Element

    And just because I’m a list nazi, let’s correct Dark Øverlord Media’s lists to top 7 lists so they reflect ties correctly:

    @ARealGirl‘s list:

    1) Godfather II
    2) Star Wars
    3) Reservior Dogs
    4) Aliens
    5) Argos
    5) Chasing Amy
    7) Ghostbusters

    @scottsigler‘s list:

    1) Aliens
    2) Shawshank Redemption
    3) Pulp Fiction
    4) Blues Brothers
    4) Animal House
    4) Strange Brew
    7) Saw
    ** Honorable mentions: Ghostbusters, Predator & Pumpkinhead

  3. athanas

    1.) Oldboy (original Korean version, not the Spike Lee remake I refuse to watch)
    2.) Bloodsport (that is the only movie I will watch back-to-back whenever it plays on Spike)
    3.) Dawn of the Dead, (Zack Snyder remake. Opened my eyes to zombies)
    4.) Heartbreak Ridge (a forgotten Eastwood flick)
    5.) Blazing Saddles (funniest movie in the history of ever)

    Top 5 lists are hard because while yes, there are amazing movies out there, (The Godfather, Shawshank Redemption, Maximum Overdrive, etc.) that are works of art, I have to think of movies that, as previously quoted, are remote droppers.

    Props on Strange Brew, though. Beauty, eh? And Max von Sydow is a bad motherfucker.
