I don’t keep a top-5 list of what I think are the best movies. Instead, I keep a top 5 list of movies it takes almost no persuasion to watch. You and someone are going through the inevitable, what do we want to watch tonight? and one of these movies comes up and you go, “yes, that!” Movies that require almost no thought about if you’d want to watch it.
For me, the list is:
- Fifth Element
- Blues Brothers
- Fellowship of the Ring, extended edition
