I knew someone was going to post it, sooner or later :P

 

it's a nice list .. but there are some films, which don't belong there really..

 

such as:

 

shouldn't have made it to the TOP 250

215. Almost Famous

236. Spider-Man 2

 

amazing order:

80. The Incredibles

125. Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

 

well, the list is created automatically from the votes of the users so I think that's all right..

Pretty much any movie by Quentin Tarantino or the Coen Brothers ... plus the Breakfast Club, Grosse Point Blank, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, The Lost Boys, Enigma, Stalingrad, Der Untergang, Lola Rennt, The Others, Office Space ... anything with Vince Vaughn in it ... ok I should stop writing now.

I could suggest hundreds - lots have already been mentioned (commendations to Silva & RebellionLies )

 

Still, I never saw The Big Lebowski on any of the lists (though I am sure nixe was thinking it as one from the Coen brothers)

why does the instrument for beatings always have to be blunt?? Is this just for historical reasons?? Thats my question...Whats wrong with me bringing my axe...and using the sharp end??

Is it just me or does Ashton Kutcher remind anyone of Marcus Blair.

 

I would definitely recommend "Zoltan: Hound of Dracula" as a must see movie. Haven't seen it in years so if anyone has a copy knocking around please let me know.

 

 

Doing some military blasting, soldiers uncover a crypt of the Dracula family. A curious soldier opens a coffin and pulls a wooden stake from the shrouded body... As you do. The veiled body stirs and then out leaps Zoltan, Hound of Dracula! He jumps the guard and kills him, then in true Lassie style noses the lid of the nearest coffin and removes a stake from the body. Dracula's servant, scar-faced Schmidt is about to resurrect Dracula when the tomb begins to collapse and he and Zoltan are forced to flee.
