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

59 Metascore

Votes: 504,888 | Gross: $57.60M

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)

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.

4. Out of Africa (1985)

Director: Darren Aronofsky | Stars: Ellen Burstyn, Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly, Marlon Wayans

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

This movies is so not funny.. and i'm a big fan of the coen brothers but not this one.

7. Three Kings (1999)

R | 114 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

82 Metascore

Director: David O. Russell | Stars: George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Ice Cube, Spike Jonze

Votes: 147,937 | Gross: $60.65M

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

93 Metascore

A series of stories following a week in the life of a philandering paparazzo journalist living in Rome.

Director: Federico Fellini | Stars: Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg, Anouk Aimée, Yvonne Furneaux

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

59 Metascore

After her last encounter, Ellen Ripley crash-lands on Fiorina 161, a maximum security prison. When a series of strange and deadly events occur shortly after her arrival, Ripley realizes that she brought along an unwelcome visitor.

Director: David Fincher | Stars: Sigourney Weaver, Charles S. Dutton, Charles Dance, Paul McGann

Votes: 239,908 | Gross: $55.47M

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

83 Metascore

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.

Director: Danny Boyle | Stars: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Kevin McKidd

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.
