A couple of these break the 10 year mark but they are just too damn good to not be on my list!!

1. Goodfellas
2. Gladiator
3. The Big Labowski
4. Mystic River
5. Heat
6. Training Day
7. Old School
8. Unforgiven
9. The Shawshank Redemption

But then you have the best Movie of all time which was SCARFACE 1983
And of of course you have the best Trilogy of all time which was The Godfather Collection.

As I posted on my blog...here is my top 10...but it really isn't fair, because who can think of the all the movies they have liked over the last 10 years...I keep thinking of new movies I want to add on...this makes turning this into a definative list very difficult. I am wondering if these polls will become common place...it is interesting to see what some of your friends like to watch. I was not surprised by many of my responses (my dad, my husband, eddie...) but I was REALLY surprised by others (like Sarah) Would be interesting to see what all my friends/family like.

1. LOTR trilogy
2. Gladiator
3. A Beautiful Mind
4. The Truman Show
5. The Quiet American
6. As Good As It Gets
7. Lost in Translation
8. Harry Potter Trilogy
9. Braveheart
10. Chicago
