I'm glad there's someone else out there that likes The Fifth Element.
 
No one is getting my red stapler. No one. I will drink the milkshake (drink it up) of anyone touching my red stapler.
 
I HATE American Beauty. I mean I absolutely despised it.
 
Anyone who disliked The Fifth Element is merely pretending. Luc Besson is awesome.
 
The Firth Element was horrible. I want to shoot Chris Tucker in the face every time I see it.

Also this is a tad off topic but Schindler's List has been on HBO a lot over the last six months. When I am flipping through the channels and it is on I feel guilty if I switch channels, like it means that I am anti-Semitic or something. It really has lead to me taking a beating emotionally, so I think I need to get rid of HBO.

So I was going to sit here and bitch about how you only have Goodfella's at 9. I think it is better than The Professional and Edwards Penis Hands. But I can't argue that it is better than that top five. The sad thing is that top five might be better than anything that has been made this decade.
 
Multipass.
 
KEVIN - I can logically agree with you on every point. The Fifth Element beating Goodfellas on my list has more to do with growing up in a family that watched it nearly every month, whereas I only saw Goodfellas twice long ago. I totally understand that it's a better movie, but my ranking criteria sort of shot it in the foot, there.

Same goes for The Professional and Edward. Edward is probably the Missus' favorite movie, and I just cannot say no to a 12 year old Natalie Portman.

But yes, I would also say that 10 of the Top 20 are arguably some of the greatest films ever made. My favorite film of the 2000's, Memento, probably wouldn't have cracked this Top 10.
 
I should also mention that Pulp Fiction is indeed my favorite movie of all-time, in case you were wondering.
 
What a great top 20! Specifically a great top 2! Also, I LOVE Edward Scissorhands.
 
Yeah, I think this is one of those occasions where my personal tastes pretty much reflect those of darn near everyone. Some movies are just awesome; quote me on that.
 
My list of favorite films from the '90s would likewise (I suspect) be a weird mash-up of truly great movies and flicks that aren't technically very good but that I adore beyond all reason. Like "Hackers" and "Tank Girl," for instance.

But I totally agree on "The Fifth Element" and especially "The Professional."
 
Exactly, and therein lies the difficulty of creating a list that combines the two without being too personal or too critical. Merely NOT making a list is unacceptable.
 
Emily, I'm late to the "Tank Girl" and "Hackers" lovefest. "Tank Girl" has a certain...feel to it. And it's kind of campy, so it's not for everyone, of course. But I love "Hackers". A young, utterly sultry Angelina Jolie, and her 1st husband (to be)Johnny Lee Miller, who is actually a better actor than I think he gets credit for (see "Trainspotting" - he was also quite good in an adaptation of Jane Austin's "Mansfield Park", if that tells you how loopy my taste in movies is).
