Peaceful Warrior

Dan Millman has it all: good grades, a shot at the Olympic team on the rings and girls lining up for the handsome Berkely college athlete all teams mates look up to with envy. Only one man shakes his confidence, an anonymous night gas station attendant, who like Socrates, keeps questioning every assumption in his life. Then a traffic crash shatters Dan's legs, and his bright future. Now Socrates's life coaching is to make or break Dan's revised ambition.

Tuff Turf

At the start of his senior year in high school, Morgan's father has lost his company, so the family moves from Connecticut, where they've been in the yacht club, to an apartment in the San Fernando Valley. Morgan has grown up in the shadow of his high-achieving older brother, and he seems to have a knack for getting into trouble. He also has a stubborn streak, so when he finds himself attracted to Frankie, the girlfriend of the leader of a local gang of youthful thugs, he can't stop himself from pushing her for a relationship. The thug thinks of Frankie as his property and sees the cool, urbane Morgan as dead meat. Is this a struggle to the death?

Conan The Barbarian

A village is attacked by the evil ruler of the Snake Cult, Thulsa Doom and his evil warriors. When Thulsa Doom and his warriors kills his parents, a young boy named Conan is enslaved. Years later, Conan grows up and becomes a mighty warrior and is trained as a fighter. After years as a slave and as a gladiator, Conan is set free. Conan sets out on a quest as he vows to avenge his parents and solve the riddle of steel. Joined by a archer named Subotai, a beautiful thief who falls in love with Conan, Valeria and a Chinese wizard, Conan and his companions sets out to rescue Princess Yasmina, daughter of King Osric, from the Snake Cult, and get his revenge on Thulsa Doom and avenge his parents.

In time

Welcome to a world where time has become the ultimate currency. You stop aging at 25, but there's a catch: you're genetically-engineered to live only one more year, unless you can buy your way out of it. The rich "earn" decades at a time (remaining at age 25), becoming essentially immortal, while the rest beg, borrow or steal enough hours to make it through the day. When a man from the wrong side of the tracks is falsely accused of murder, he is forced to go on the run with a beautiful hostage. Living minute to minute, the duo's love becomes a powerful tool in their war against the system.

Revenge of the Sith

Nearly three years have passed since the beginning of the Clone Wars. The Republic, with the help of the Jedi, take on Count Dooku and the Separatists. With a new threat rising, the Jedi Council sends Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to aid the captured Chancellor. Anakin feels he is ready to be promoted to Jedi Master. Obi-Wan is hunting down the Separatist General, Grievous. When Anakin has future visions of pain and suffering coming Padmé's way, he sees Master Yoda for counsel. When Darth Sidious executes Order 66, it destroys most of all the Jedi have built. Experience the birth of Darth Vader. Feel the betrayal that leads to hatred between two brothers. And witness the power of hope.

Bill and Teds excellent adventure

In the small town of San Dimas, a few miles away from Los Angeles, there are two nearly brain dead teenage boys going by the names of Bill S, Preston ESQ. and Ted Theodore Logan, they have a dream together of starting their own rock and roll band called the "Wyld Stallyns". Unfortunately, they are still in high school and on the verge of failing out of their school as well, and if they do not pass their upcoming history report, they will be separated as a result of Ted's father sending him to military school. But, what Bill and Ted do not know is that they must stay together to save the future. So, a man from the future named Rufus came to help them pass their report. So, both Bill and Ted decided to gather up historical figures which they need for their report. They are hoping that this will help them pass their report so they can stay together.

Predator

A team of special force ops, led by a tough but fair soldier, Major "Dutch" Schaefer, are ordered to assist CIA man, Colonel Al Dillon, on a rescue mission for potential survivors of a Helicopter downed over remote South American jungle. Not long after they land, Dutch and his team discover that they have been sent in under false pretenses. This deception turns out to be the least of their worries though, when they find themselves being methodically hunted by something not of this world.

Good Luck

Hines plays a former dental student, Bern Lemley, who had to quit school just before finals because of a car accident that left him in a wheelchair. D'Onofrio plays a former pro football player, Ole Olezniak, who was blinded in a freak accident on the field. Before their accidents, Bern had been a tutor for Ole, and, after quitting his post-accident job as a denture technician, he approaches Ole about teaming up to enter a white-water rafting race on Oregon's Rogue River.

Fight Club

A nameless first person narrator attends support groups in attempt to subdue his emotional state and relieve his insomniac state. When he meets Marla, another fake attendee of support groups, his life seems to become a little more bearable. However when he associates himself with Tyler he is dragged into an underground fight club and soap making scheme. Together the two men spiral out of control and engage in competitive rivalry for love and power. When the narrator is exposed to the hidden agenda of Tyler's fight club, he must accept the awful truth that Tyler may not be who he says he is.

The Dark Knight

Set within a year after the events of Batman Begins, Batman, Lieutenant James Gordon, and new District Attorney Harvey Dent successfully begin to round up the criminals that plague Gotham City, until a mysterious and sadistic criminal mastermind known only as "The Joker" appears in Gotham, creating a new wave of chaos. Batman's struggle against The Joker becomes deeply personal, forcing him to "confront everything he believes" and improve his technology to stop him. A love triangle develops between Bruce Wayne, Dent, and Rachel Dawes.

Interesting pick. I enjoyed the film back in the day, but even then it felt waaaay too rushed, they tried fitting three books into one film and it shows with the pacing, lol. Have you watched the Netflix series, and if so, what did you think of it? Personally I thought the Netflix adaption was SO much better, simply because they were able to go into more detail, each book was given two episodes each (Except the final book which was one episode but to be honest that's all it needed) and honestly... I actually enjoyed Neil Patrick Harris as Olaf much more than Jim Carrey :o 



Terminator
Terminator 2
The Mask
Predator
Alien
Aliens
Die hard
The dark knight
Matrix
Dumb and dumber

I saw these at least 5 times.



This is tough...In no order:
(really tried to balance this out with what I like)

Dances with Wolves
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)
Bloodsport
Enter the Dragon
Braveheart
Gladiator
Titanic (1997) - this is automatic seeing as it's the only film I saw 6 times in theaters
Jaws
Jurassic Park
Point Break (1991)

A few honourables that almost made the cut I have to mention:

Ghost, Passion of the Christ, Apocalypto, Pulp Fiction, Her, Terminator 2, Good Will Hunting, White Fang, The Lion King, The Descent

My list has been set for a long time now. I feel like I need something to shake it up :P

10. Sunset Blvd. (1950)
A devastating deconstruction of Hollywood

9. Beauty and the Beast (1946)
A masterful fantasy film with spectacular production design and special effects for the era

8. City Lights (1931)
An incredibly funny, poignant love story with a tear-jerking finale

7. Ivan the Terrible, Part II (1958)
A visual masterpiece, with symbolism and subtext to spare

6. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Kubrick's magnum opus; a cerebral, challenging science fiction epic

5. Seven Samurai (1954)
Stunning action sequences, amazing composition, and memorable characters make this Kurosawa's best

4. L'Atalante (1934)
A dreamlike romance that captures the beauty and cruelty of life and love

3. Bicycle Thieves (1948)
An incredibly authentic and heartbreaking look at a struggling family in the aftermath of WWII

2. Vertigo (1958)
Hitchock at the top of his game; a movie dripping in suspense, mystery, drama, and the darkness of human nature

1. Citizen Kane (1941)
An earth-shattering work of cinema with outstanding non-linear storytelling, smart writing, all-time great cinematography, stellar editing, and a powerful story about the rise and fall of a publishing tycoon

Really? I thought it was great, especially with the idea of 3 books in one film. Each to our own anyway! I watched some of the Netflix series one and could not stand it at all, couldn't even get passed the second episode. The actors were terrible (Neil Patrick was actually pretty good). Everything seemed out of place and didn't fit the atmosphere the books set, however the movie did. I prefer Jim Carrey over Neil P, he hit the nail in the head.
