3) Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
4) Good Will Hunting
5) Reservoir Dogs
6) Stalag 17
7) Little Miss Sunshine

Schindler's List is pretty funny

But:
Malcolm X (or X - by the movie cover)
East of Eden
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Enemy at the Gates
Back to the Future

there is no top 10. Nothing has come close to hitting those.

Recent movies:

I absolutely love The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Brilliant movie.

Also
There Will Be Blood

Gangs of New York I forgot about in the original post, so I guess there would be a top 8.

HAHAHAHAHA sweet! I was wondering if you were gonna post a Hunter S Thompson movie or not.

Malcolm X was a surprisingly excellent adaptation of the (Autobiography) book. I read the book in Grade School (to be different) and still remember it to this day.

Has to be Fear and Loathing as opposed to Where the Buffalo Roam, a brutal but still entertaining Hunter movie.

Malcolm X is a great adaptation on the book, a lot of time constraint issues with the book. the jail scenes aren't the greatest fro the book. But for a 3 hour movie from an entire life, I think Spike Lee did what he could.

Denzel was ****ing flawless though. I can't even watch a movie today of Denzel Washington without thinking of Malcolm X. Or a youtube speech of Malcolm X and think of Denzel Washington. If I've ever seen an Oscar worthy movie - that was it.

The fact he got it for Training Day, and not that movie kind of annoys me. Let alone if I was black.

And of course lol. It's the only pop culture way for people to know why I picked the name. Not for the writing but if they picked up on the scene:

(Checking into a hotel with massive amounts of drugs..)

Name?
Thompson, no no... Duke

Raoul Duke...

Of course Mr. Duke... right this way...

I've actually read many of his books and seen every movie about him so I know the background pretty well.

Denzel definitely deserved an Oscar for that but unfortunately Hollywood had a problem with the subject matter. What do you expect when the Old guard of Hollywood rules the voting process?

Agreed, because you're the only person to pick it out yet. I didn't mean that against you at all... more saying I'm impressed you knew about it...

Depp is starring in "The Rum Diary" movie later, it's funny a book he could never sell in real life is now starred by probably Hollywood's biggest star (even if Depp was a friend and all)

Another author, but I still don't know why "The Catcher in the Rye" isn't in movie form yet...

I don't even know about the voting process, but I think the thing that will surprise people if they do watch it, is the transition from real life footage of Malcolm X speaking to Denzel Washington acting as him.

It's flawless. I didn't even notice it myself as a huge follower of Malcolm X books and speeches until I saw it on A&E's Biography.

Weird to say, but not only was Malcolm X good looking enough to be Denzel Washington, but Denzel Washington was powerful enough in his acting to be Malcolm X. Just a brilliant performance in my opinion.
