Midlands Movies Mike Favourite 50 Films of all time 2017

By midlandsmovies, Jun 2 2017 09:09PM



Well, it's been nearly 5 years since I launched Midlands Movies and in 2012 I did one of my first ever blogs by writing a simple feature about my favourite 50 films of all time (click here).


This was done straight off the top of my head so after all this time I thought it would be very intresting to do it again! Will any of them change? What has aged well and which are no longer sitting in my favour, I wonder?


As always, these lists are entirely subjective and with *only* 50 to choose from I have obviously missed out some great films I love but thought it would be intriguing to put out a new list so many years later.


So, below is the full 50 films (and I have to clearly state that these are in no particular order):


1 Back to the Future Trilogy

2 Alien Quadrilogy

3 The Dark Knight

4 Almost Famous

5 The Big Lebowski

6 Goodfellas

7 Withnail and I

8 Die Hard

9 Dr Strangelove

10 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

11 The Fall

12 Fight Club

13 12 Angry Men

14 The Godfather 1 & 2

15 Groundhog Day

16 Heat

17 Indiana Jones Trilogy

18 Batman '89

19 Jurassic Park

20 LA Confidential

21 Gladiator

22 The Matrix

23 Memento

24 Gravity

25 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

26 The Prestige

27 Psycho

28 Pulp Fiction

29 JFK

30 Reservoir Dogs

31 Robocop

32 Schindlers List

33 Toy Story Trilogy

34 Star Wars: Original Trilogy

35 The Silence of Lambs

36 Some like it Hot

37 Inception

38 This Is Spinal Tap

39 T2: Judgment Day

40 Trainspotting

41 Unforgiven

42 Django Unchained

43 Wall E

44 The Wolf of Wall St

45 The Warriors

46 Shawshank Redemption

47 Lord of the Rings Trilogy

48 Se7en

49 Zodiac

50 Mad Max: Fury Road


A quick check shows that the following great films have slipped out the list after 5 years:

American Beauty, Anchorman, Minority Report, Raging Bull, Requiem for a Dream, True Romance, Chinatown, Sin City, The Sixth Sense, Spiderman 2, Team America: World Police and Full Metal Jacket.


These were replaced by The Fall, Groundhog Day, Heat, Memento, Gravity, The Prestige, Trainspotting, Unforgiven, Django Unchained, The Wolf of Wall St, Zodiac and Mad Max: Fury Road


Maybe in a few years I will do another check of these and no doubt some will stick around and some will move on - and again allow myself some trilogies in there to get more films in! LOL.
