  • 10. American Grafitti
    Nostalgic and sincere.Great soundtrack too!
  • 9. The Exorcist
    Its a horror movie that is not impossible to happen in real life.
  • 8. Chinatown
  • 7. Harold And Maude
    Funny and weird film.The fake suicide scenes are hilarious.
  • 6. Grease
    Its really fun to watch it.Its almost perfect except that ending.I dont think you should change yourself to please others especially you boyfriend.Sandy is already a nice girl,so why change yourself?If Danny wants a horny girl,he can just choose from one of the other Pink Ladies!
  • 5. Taxi Driver
    Great cinematography,score and performances.Very dark yet very realistic.
  • 4. Annie Hall
    Very innovative and its really funny.
  • 3. Kramer Vs. Kramer
    Its funny and dramatic.My favorite scenes are when Justin Henry was trying to eat the ice cream and Dustin is warning him,another one is when Dustin was trying to explain to Justin that his mom is going to take her,he's going to bring his toys with him,etc.
  • 2. The Deer Hunter
    I dont really have a problem when it comes to watching long movies as long as its really good like this one.The russian roullette scenes are intense,especially the final one when Christopher Walken shot himself.It brought me too tears and I still cry whenever I think about it.It seems like im also the one who lost a friend.He definitely,101% deserve that Oscar!
  • 1. The Godfather 1 & 2
    Two of the best ever,but unlike most people,I think the first movie is the best.
The 70's,another golden age for cinema.Sounds corny but its true.
