    It's a very, very middleweight list. I think only "Unforgiven" has cinematic greatness about it of them all, although others have some impressive strengths.

    Wow, that list doesn't speak well for those 25 years.

    Amadeus is, far and away, the best film here. A few other great ones, but I can think of a bunch more films I prefer for each year on the list.

    Only one I watch regularly is Gladiator.

    Unforgiven and Silence of the Lambs are pretty great.
     
  12. Unforgiven has that incredible scene after being told what they did to Ned. Eastwood's portrayal of Will Munny just transforms him in front of our eyes from the controlled devoted husband/father back into the the monster he always was. While we don't see how his wife took that monster out of him, it must be one whale of a story.

    My choices:
    Chariots of Fire
    Ghandi
    Silence of the Lambs
    Forrest Gump
    Unforgiven

    Why?
    Just because.

    Okay, who was it? Come forward. You can't hide anymore.
    Who was it that gave "The Frickin' English Patient" 1 vote?
    Good thing this is a music forum because if it was a film forum, we would be extraditing your removal.
