Robbo's Top 10 Lists - Movies

Okay since I'm a filmmaker (albeit not too successful yet) I thought people might like to know what movies I like. Unlike most people my taste is very eclectic, ranging from cartoons to horror and almost everything in between:

Top 10

10. Interstellar 5555
An excellent anime sci-fi story set to Daft Punk's Discovery album. The animation is by Leiji Matsumoto, the legend behind many 80s anime hits.

9. The Princess Bride
A hilarious fantasy story starring Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin and Andre the Giant.

8. Police Story
Jackie Chan's landmark film that changed the way people all over the world look at action and made JC films uninsurable. The stuntmen involved refer to it as Glass Story, watchit to find out why.

7. Mamiya Kyoudai
While by no means the best film starring Kitagawa Keiko it is certainly the most entertaining and quirky.

6. The Karate Kid
The film that made people believe even a scrawny geek could be a champ if they learned Karate. A stand out for being one of the first films to normalise Martial Arts.

5. The Evil Dead
Bruce "the Chin" Cambell's first foray as Ash in Sam Raimi's debut film is one of the best horror films ever.

4. Clerks
Here is where Kevin Smith's Jersey Chronicles began, made for only US$25000 it is an inspiration to aspiring filmmakers everywhere.

3. Beauty and the Beast
My all time favourite Disney film and the inspiration for my love-life (when I have one).

2. Azumi
Japanese pop-idol Ueto Aya playing an awesome assassin in feudal Japan. The amazing finale sees Azumi face 200 enemies solo.

1. Who Framed Roger Rabbit
A truly unique blend of genres and techniques but more importantly a truly enjoyable film.

Next time it'll be my Top 10 Beers
