My 25 Favorite Films

I'm just really getting into the art of film, so I realize some of these rrare robvious choices. Feel free to recommend any masterpieces I rrshould check rout.
1One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (1975)

Just an absolutely perfect film. No flaws whatsoever. The pinnacle of filmmaking, at least from what I've seen.
2The Shining (1980)

Kubrick's masterwork and a visual labyrinth that offers something new upon every viewing.
3The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Another one of those perfect films. I can't deny its raw power and beauty, and based on its reputation, nobody else can either.
4There Will Be Blood (2007)

The greatest film of the 21st century, with one of the greatest performances by DDL from any century. A visceral and rewarding experience both visually and mentally.
5Se7en (1995)

1995 was a hell of a year for Kevin Spacey.
62001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

When your film is 46 years old and the special effects aren't dated, you're probably the most genius director of your generation. A puzzling, brilliant picture that has a soul lying deep in its themes of machinery and heartlessness.
7Prisoners (2013)

This is the one I usually get laughed at for. This is a breathtaking, draining film that demanded every ounce of attention I could offer to it. It only got one Academy Award nomination for cinematography, and lost to a film (Gravity) that had computers written all over it. What a shame.
8The Silence Of The Lambs (1991)

Reference my previous list
9Psycho (1960)

Hitchcock made his greatest work of art on a shoestring budget with some inspiration, an incredible story and an even more incredible spark of directorial genius. Psycho gave us one of the great villains in film history, and it also resulted in a pretty good TV series about 50 years after its original impact.
10Memento (2000)

Christopher Nolan has written film's first twist beginning. Hollywood has spent nearly 15 years waiting for another.
11The Usual Suspects (1995)

Kevin Spacey, one of my top 3 actors (DDL, Nicholson) worked incredibly hard to earn his Best Supporting Actor nod here. His performance is augmented by an incredible screenplay and Bryan Singer's direction.
12Chinatown (1974)

Still the greatest screenplay ever written.
13Pi (1998)

Another low-budget masterpiece from visionary Darren Aronofsky. His first film is his best, although nearly every other one that followed (I have not seen Noah) had its own stroke of brilliance to it.
14Shaun Of The Dead (2004)

I find it hard to believe that this is Edgar Wright's first full-length feature. He seems more competent in a director's chair on his first movie than most people would be on their tenth.
15Raging Bull (1980)

Martin Scorsese's masterpiece, although Taxi Driver gives it a run for its money. Robert De Niro makes an absolute monster out of real-life middleweight champion Jake LaMotta. This film reminds me a lot of There Will Be Blood in that watching it is like watching a car wreck. It's horrible but you can't look away.
16Full Metal Jacket (1987)
17Monsters, Inc. (2001)
18Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (2010)
19Trainspotting (1996)
20Traffic (2000)
21Toy Story 3 (2010)
22Taxi Driver (1976)
23Vertigo (1958)
24L.A. Confidential (1997)
25Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
