    Glory by James Horner. Not too popular, but an excellent movie, with one of the most beautiful and dramatic scenes I've ever watched.

    Kharn I thought Darko was pretty well-directed, given that half of the really important stuff was hacked out before theatrical release. If you haven't already, I suggest you check out the website.

    The Day After
    Reservoir Dogs
    Pulp Fiction
    Rosencratz and Guildenstern Are Dead (DVD a must!, and read play if tienes the time)
    Slaughterhouse-5 (my favorite book)
    Army of Darkness
    The Big Lebowski
    O Brother, Where Art Thou
    Fight Club (popularity disappointing, but astoundingly close to the fine novel)
    Metropolis
    Gangs of New York
    Goodfellas
    The Big Dance (Just Kidding!, for Christ's sake)
    The Road Warrior
    The Goonies
    Blade Runner (Read Do Android's Dream of Electric Sheep, one of the trippiest books ever)
    Minority Report (Read the short story by Philip K. Dick)
    Night of the Living Dead
    Dawn of the Dead
    Hudsucker Proxy (Coen Brothers, YEAH!)
    Pi
    Requiem for a Dream
    A Clockwork Orange (book also very awesome)
    Gladiator
    2001: A Space Odyssey (also, book)
    The Thin Red Line

    As stated in the agreement, the main purposes of the Canadian-United States Free Trade Agreement were:
    eliminate barriers to trade in goods and services between Canada and the United States;
    facilitate conditions of fair competition within the free-trade area established by the Agreement;
    significantly liberalize conditions for investment within that free-trade area;
    establish effective procedures for the joint administration of the Agreement and the resolution of disputes;
    Lay the foundation for further bilateral and multilateral cooperation to expand and enhance the benefits of the Agreement.[2]

    I like a lot of films. The ones I could watch a few times after each other would be donnie darko, batman (1969), blues brothers, army of darkness, taxi driver and uh...fight club.

    I haven't seen citizen kane.

    I wouldn't say clockwork orange is that great. Mabye at the time it was better, but now it seems pretty tame. I'm also not basing my favourites if they have had better movies since, or because of things linked to them.

    And the fight club book is pretty bad and the movie is a lot better in my opinion.

    Fight Club is one of the few films that is better than the book.

    Have you read A Clockwork Orange, Megatron? I think it's better than the movie, but I like the movie a lot.

    The bill was conceived as part of a solution to the purely domestic matter of avoiding a projected federal deficit reported by Secretary of the Treasury Alexander J. Dallas.[3] International developments added key facets to the debate; in 1816 there was widespread concern among Americans that war with Great Britain might be rekindled over economic and territorial issues. A tariff on manufactured goods, including war industry products, was deemed essential in the interests of national defense.[4][5]

    The New York Times reported that many Democrats in the East, "prefer to take the income tax, odious as it is, and unpopular as it is bound to be with their constituents," than to defeat the Wilson tariff bill.[2] Democratic Representative Johnson of Ohio supported the income tax as the lesser of two evils: "he was for an income tax as against a tariff tax; but he believed, that it was un-Democratic, inquisitorial, and wrong in principle."[3] The income tax provision was struck down in 1895 by the U.S. Supreme Court case Pollock v. Farmers' Loan & Trust Co., 157 U.S. 428 (1895). In 1913, the 16th Amendment permitted a federal income tax. The tariff provisions of Wilson-Gorman were superseded by the Dingley Tariff of 1897.

    The only thing that I really saw that was very different between the novel Fight Club and the film was the ending, and opinions vary pretty wildly on that. For example, Chuck Palahniuk, the author, felt that the ending was changed for the better, but I like the book ending better.
    Also, Clockwork Orange's ending was changed from the original text. Actually, the book was altered by the American publisher, who deleted the last chapter, and then Stan Kubrick made the film off of the altered version.
    Anthony Burgess didn't really like that, and the true ending is more optimistic than pedantically pessismistc.

    Without posting a long list, I'd probably say that Apocalypse Now. the Godfather movies, and various Kurosawa flicks (Yojimbo, Seven Samurai, Ran) belong at the top.

    "Desperate Living" makes my top ten. The first 10 minutes of it is my favorite scene ever put on film, and the rest is completely over-the-top funny as well. Can't think of any other cult films that would make my top ten at the moment, although other John Waters movies come really close.

    Edit: just remembered - "Bottle Rocket" would be in my top-ten as well. I don't know how "cult" it is now with Wes Anderson's success, but for a long time no one I knew ever heard of it.
