1. A Clockwork Orange (1971)
R | 136 min | Crime, Drama, Sci-Fi
In the future, a sadistic gang leader is imprisoned and volunteers for a conduct-aversion experiment, but it doesn't go as planned.
I alway wonder if this movies is so highly rated because al film critics just don't dare to say they hate this movie. It just seems like the fairytale of the emperor's new clothes, where nobody dare to give their real opinion. But let me say this movie is not as great as a lot of people claim it to be. A violence packed weird movie.
2. Life Is Beautiful (1997)
PG-13 | 116 min | Comedy, Drama, War
When an open-minded Jewish librarian and his son become victims of the Holocaust, he uses a perfect mixture of will, humor, and imagination to protect his son from the dangers around their camp.

You have to love la vita è bella because it's about the holocaust, kids and a funny man. Well i never irritated myself more then with this movie. Benigni desperately tries to be funny in a horrible situation that is not convincing to me. Al I felt was irritation.
3. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
G | 149 min | Adventure, Sci-Fi
Humanity finds a mysterious, obviously artificial object buried beneath the Lunar surface and, with the intelligent computer H.A.L. 9000, sets off on a quest.

4 hours of watching a red dot.. I could be that i just don't like Kubricks work, but for me this movies is just boring and I love SciFi.

Watch out this movies bores your to death..
5. Requiem for a Dream (2000)

Votes: 658,295 | Gross: $3.64M
Although it is somewhat interesting, al the halucinating stuff does not appeal to me, i'm not a big fan of people who use drugs movies. And as an actor i'm not a big fan of Jerad Leto and Jennifer Connelly.
6. O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)
PG-13 | 107 min | Adventure, Comedy, Crime
In the deep south during the 1930s, three escaped convicts search for hidden treasure while a relentless lawman pursues them.

This movies is so not funny.. and i'm a big fan of the coen brothers but not this one.
7. Three Kings (1999)

I suppose this movie is an accusation against the war. But it not convinced me at all. Besides Clooney felt a little out of place and Ice Cube is just not a good actor.
8. La Dolce Vita (1960)
Not Rated | 174 min | Comedy, Drama
A series of stories following a week in the life of a philandering paparazzo journalist living in Rome.
Votes: 55,333 | Gross: $19.52M
Maybe its because i'm not born in fourties or fifties. But i could not follow this guy with all his struggles.
9. Alien³ (1992)
R | 114 min | Action, Horror, Sci-Fi

I think I had the wrong expectations when watching this movie. Maybe Cameron had done such a great job with the prequal that is one could one be worse. But Fincher did made up for it with all his other great work.
10. Trainspotting (1996)
R | 94 min | Drama
Renton, deeply immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene, tries to clean up and get out, despite the allure of the drugs and influence of friends.
Votes: 555,086 | Gross: $16.50M
Another "people using drugs movie". I like the later work of Danny Boyle much beter e.g. 28 days later.
