Just joined it this morning. Ian was right to call it insidious for how addictive it is. Here is my current Top 10 (after some re-ranking) out of 90 movies:

1. Jurassic Park

2. Hot Fuzz

3. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

4. The Godfather Part I

5. Little Miss Sunshine

6. The Sound of Music

7. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

8. Bubba Ho-tep

9. Star Wars

10. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The Matrix. Django is epic, don't get me wrong, but The Matrix is epic as well as incredibly groundbreaking. It's still probably the king of the "reality is an illusion" subgenre.

Agreed, particularly on the groundbreaking point. Django is my second favourite Tarantino flick (after Basterds), but The Matrix as a standalone film is pretty darn special. And it's unfair to allow the sequels to taint the original, although I perfectly understand why people do...

A battle between the two films I've watched today:

Memento vs The Adventures of Robin Hood (AKA the Errol Flynn Robin Hood film)

Not to cast doubt on your learned opinions/judgment etc, but having rewatched Adventures of Robin Hood today, I firmly believe it to be one of the finest films of its decade (especially given my wealth of knowledge about films from the 1930s and their precise minutiae). Regardless, it's a hugely fun film with some great action.

I believe I saw it in my youth but that's not a reliable source. It's apples and pears really, a tough call. If you're asking which I'm happier exists then absolutely it's Robin Hood.
