1. Battlefield Earth (2000)

After enslavement and near extermination by an alien race in the year 3000, humanity begins to fight back.

Director: Roger Christian | Stars: John Travolta, Forest Whitaker, Barry Pepper, Kim Coates

Votes: 69,148 | Gross: $21.47M

Without question one of the greatest cinematic performances of all time. John Travolta was absolutely captivating as a 7 foot alien who is methodical in enslaving humanity. The lack of plot only adds to the story, and there's some other people in it too. Amazing.

2. Skyline (2010)

PG-13 | 97 min | Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller

Strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth.

Directors: Colin Strause, Greg Strause | Stars: Eric Balfour, Donald Faison, Scottie Thompson, Brittany Daniel

Votes: 80,651 | Gross: $21.37M

This movie left me with a real feeling of incompleteness. Almost like life itself it seems to lead nowhere, yet still be terrifying. The film starts almost the same as it ends and really nails the genre. 5 empty stars.

3. Highlander II: The Quickening (1991)

R | 91 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

In the future, Highlander Connor MacLeod must prevent the destruction of Earth under an anti-ozone shield.

Director: Russell Mulcahy | Stars: Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, Virginia Madsen, Michael Ironside

Votes: 39,201 | Gross: $15.56M

A masterpiece of the 20th century, and despite it's intention, Highlander II successfully bridged the gap between Highlander I and, well, something else. You quickly forget the fact that the entire movie doesn't make sense when watching the stellar performances of it's key actors. I will always be asking myself; "Is there a role Christopher Lambert can't play to a tee?"

"Yes," I will answer, "all of them."

4. Freddy Got Fingered (2001)

R | 87 min | Comedy

An unemployed cartoonist moves back in with his parents and younger brother Freddy. When his parents demand he leave, he begins to spread rumors that his father is sexually abusing Freddy.

Director: Tom Green | Stars: Tom Green, Rip Torn, Marisa Coughlan, Eddie Kaye Thomas

Votes: 41,741 | Gross: $14.25M

This film has Tom Green in it. 'nuff said.

5. Spider-Man 3 (2007)

PG-13 | 139 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

A strange black entity from another world bonds with Peter Parker and causes inner turmoil as he contends with new villains, temptations, and revenge.

Director: Sam Raimi | Stars: Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Topher Grace, Thomas Haden Church

Votes: 426,397 | Gross: $336.53M

An excellent example of trying to outwit your audience by making them think they are going to see a good film. Is there anything more thrilling than watching Tobey Maguire trying to be sexy? YES! Tobey Maguire trying to act cool! And let me tell you, his style is flawless. Kirsten Dunst is also really good to look at, at least she was when she was 17.

6. Soul Plane (2004)

R | 86 min | Comedy

Things get raucously funny aboard the maiden flight of a black-owned airline, thanks to some last-minute passenger additions.

Director: Jessy Terrero | Stars: Dwayne Adway, Snoop Dogg, Tom Arnold, Kevin Hart

Votes: 19,492 | Gross: $13.92M

Please make sure your seat belts and tray tables are in the upright position before attempting to watch this riot of a film! I have personally read reviews stating this is one of the funniest films that could quite possibly be released in our lifetimes. We should feel privileged to have the opportunity to bear witness to such greatness at work. If you never watch another film again, make sure you include this in your list. I haven't personally seen it, so feel free to let me know if it's actually any good.

7. Year One (2009)

PG-13 | 97 min | Adventure, Comedy

After being banished from their tribe, two hunter-gatherers encounter Biblical characters and eventually wind up in the city of Sodom.

Director: Harold Ramis | Stars: Jack Black, Michael Cera, Olivia Wilde, Oliver Platt

Votes: 81,417 | Gross: $43.34M

Let it never be said that Jack Black isn't anything short of a great actor. And if that isn't enough reason to attempt to make it the entire way through this film, I don't know what is. This vague try at a humorous movie makes me feel like the best comedian on earth which really warms my heart. It's lovely (the feeling), and an absolute laugh with a guaranteed giggle every 3 hours (the movie).

Running Time: 1 hr. 40 min.

8. Ironclad (2011)

R | 121 min | Action, Adventure, Drama

In 13th-century England, a small group of Knights Templar fight to defend Rochester Castle against the tyrannical King John.

Director: Jonathan English | Stars: Paul Giamatti, Jason Flemyng, Brian Cox, James Purefoy

Votes: 36,644

James Purefoy (Christopher Lambert 2.0) has so many dimensions in this film you can count them on one finger. The story follows someone who is going to do something at a castle somewhere to prevent someone else from doing something which might be considered a bad idea by the remainder of the population. Paul Giamatti is there too. Bring it on!

9. Southland Tales (2006)

During a three day heat wave just before a huge 4th of July celebration, an action star stricken with amnesia meets up with a porn star who is developing her own reality TV project, and a policeman who holds the key to a vast conspiracy.

Director: Richard Kelly | Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Seann William Scott, Carlos Amezcua

Votes: 34,010 | Gross: $0.28M

Nowhere has a bigger collection of stars created such a film. If you find yourself questioning the story line, never fear, there's singing. You will leave the cinema scratching your head at the ingenuity of the plot.

Hmmm... Christopher Lambert's in this one too... That must be what makes it so, good?

10. Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997)

A computer hacker breaks into the computer system of the Seabourn Legend cruise liner and sets it speeding on a collision course into a gigantic oil tanker.

This movie's plot was so thrilling that Keanu Reeves turned it down. Yep, Keanu Reeves turned it down.

I'll say it again, Keanu Reeves turned it down.
