Favourite Movies

Prompted by Jason Kottkeā€™s recent post about his “Most-rewatched Movies” I list the ten movies that I have watched over and over again (in no particular order).

The Usual Suspects: A boat has been destroyed, criminals are dead, and the key to this mystery lies with the only survivor and his twisted, convoluted story beginning with five career crooks in a seemingly random police lineup.

Star Wars [IV, A New Hope - the original and the best]: Luke Skywalker leaves his home planet, teams up with other rebels, and tries to save Princess Leia from the evil clutches of Darth Vader.

The Russia House: An expatriate British publisher unexpectedly finds himself working for British intelligence to investigate people in Russia.

Fight Club: An office employee and a soap salesman build a global organization to help vent male aggression.

Twelve Monkeys: In a future world devastated by disease, a convict is sent back in time to gather information about the man-made virus that wiped out most of the human population on the planet.

Matrix Reloaded: Neo and the rebel leaders estimate that they have 72 hours until 250,000 probes discover Zion and destroy it and its inhabitants. During this, Neo must decide how he can save Trinity from a dark fate in his dreams.
