Just watched Monsters. Maybe not top five, but one of the most interesting I've seen for a long time.

Lots of people hated it, possibly because it's nothing like the title suggests. It's definitely not an action fest.

2006
Directed by Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko)

I just watched 'Southland Tales' for the first time.

It is one of the most astonishing films I have seen in a very long time. HIGHLY recommended.

I really can't believe no-one mentioned Demon Seed!

Most of my other favourites are mentioned, though Demon Seed, Dark Star, Phase IV, They Live and Primer would be my top 5 in no particular order.

Kind of off topic, but has anyone ever seen My Dinner with Andre?

The scariest movie I've ever seen was "The Entity."

I saw this as a kid and thought, damn could that happen to guys as well?

There are some movies I have to check out thanks to this thread.
