Can you name your TOP 5 movies. I'm just curious about the selection of movies from ATS users.
Just list your 5 favourite movies of all time.

I have some spare time these days, so I'm kinda seeking inspiration.

BTW, yesterday I went to see Edge of Tomorrow and I was kindly surprised.

I'll start. My TOP 5 (or maybe 11).
1. Inception
2. Cloud Atlas
3. The Matrix
4. The Prestige
5. Fight Club,Donnie Darko,V for Vendetta, The Dark Knight, The Butterfly Effect and Equilibrium share the 5th place, as I can't decide really.
