Some Good Movies

I was dangerously bored so decided to write up some films, or rather THE films you have to watch, and I mean HAVE to watch. Unlike a lot of movies the following are not a waste of 1-2+ hours, after seeing them you'll be inspired, they'll help you get things done faster, make you more imaginitive and want to honour them by creating something worthy of comparison (something I am yet to do), something that will be helpful to not just animators but everyone, and most of all some of them will make you laugh a fuckload! Some might not be on anyone elses greatist film lists and a few might be oldies that everyones seen a million times but they're still great. So here they are in no particular order.

The Big Lebowski (I watch this at least once a month :| )
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (This too)
Glengarry Glenross (Greatest acting performance ever)
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Eraserhead (wtf?!)
Evolution (way overlooked, Reitmans great Ghostbusters formula makes you root for the average guy, plus great comedy performances)
Oldboy
A Bittersweet Life
The Royal Tenenbaums (Best film soundtrack?)
The Life Aquatic
Donnie Darko (or maybe this has the best soundtrack?)
Hero
The Producers
Blazing Saddles ("Where the White Women at?")
The Prodigal Son (Two words...Yuen Bao )
Gozu
Ichi the Killer
Delicatessen (Colourful, Crazy and Carnivalesque)
Animal House
Downfall
Scary Movie (Parody at its Best)
Airplane (Here too)
Ghostbusters (Who you gonna call?)
Back to the Future Trilogy (Fleas third film on the list!)
Alien Trilogy
Predator
Police Story
Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (I miss funny Jim Carrey)
The Mask
Akira
Battle Royale
Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure
The Killer
Clerks
The Usual Suspects
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Belleville Rendezvous
Barton Fink ("I will show you the life of the mind")
Running Man("There are innocent people down there!")
Total Recall
Withnail and I
Perfect Blue
The Hudsucker Proxy
Fargo
Mall Rats
Sin City
Shaun of the Dead
Hot Fuzz
Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Evil Dead 2
Apocolypse Now
Jacob's Ladder
Hard Boiled
Mexico Trilogy
Pulp Fiction
Twelve Monkeys
Star Wars
Easy Rider
The Terminator
The Matrix
Enter The Dragon
Trainspotting
Monty Pythons The Holy Grail
2001: A Space Oddesy
Blade Runner ("Him say you Brade runner")
Fight Club

I left out craploads of films, and I still have so many films to watch which I know will become some of my favs, but next time you're thinking of wasting time, or doing something unholy, put on one of these films and have a lol.
