    List your 5-star Netflix movies

    If you do the Netflix thing, and if you rate movies on there so it'll suggest more (I'm at 1041 movies rated), list out the ones that you've given 5 stars.

    Bayo's thread about "Everything Is Illuminated" got me thinking about it, because I was on the 4/5 star fence with that one. Being the geek I am, I think I tilt my ratings in the interest of the recommendation engine, not necessarily just because I thought something was a fine film.

    9/11 (the French documentary)
    All Quiet On the Western Front (the original)
    American Beauty
    Band of Brothers
    Before Sunrise
    Before Sunset (still the best movie I've seen in the last 5 years)
    Big Night
    Black Hawk Down
    Born Into Brothels
    Broken Flowers
    Bull Durham
    Chappelle's Show - 1 & 2
    Citizen Kane
    City of Lost Children
    Constant Gardner
    Dangerous Beauty
    Dead Poets Society
    Eat Drink Man Woman
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (I think I was a little too kind)
    Field of Dreams
    Fight Club
    Fog of War
    Forrest Gump
    Full Metal Jacket
    Garden State
    Ghost World
    Ghosts of Rwanda (Frontline)
    Gladiator (total guilty pleasure)
    Good Night, and Good Luck
    Good Will Hunting
    Hotel Rwanda
    Hunt For Red October
    Kung Fu Hustle
    LA Confidential
    Last of the Mohicans
    Life is Beautiful
    LOTR 1,2,3
    Lost in Translation
    Master and Commander
    Matrix (only the first one, of course)
    Napoleon Dynamite
    The Natural
    Neil Finn: 7 Worlds Collide & Sessions at W 54th
    O Brother, Where Art Thou?
    One Hour Photo
    The Pianist
    Princess Bride
    Pulp Fiction
    Quiz Show
    Raiders of the Lost Ark
    Red Violin
    Reservoir Dogs
    Road to Perdition
    Rob Roy
    Royal Tenebaums
    Saving Private Ryan
    Say Anything
    Schindler's List
    Sex and Lucia
    sex, lies, and videotape
    Shadow Magic
    Shawshank Redemption
    Silence of the Lambs
    South Park (movie)
    Star Wars & Empire
    Station Agent (Holy crap, what a good movie)
    Super Size Me
    Team America
    Usual Suspects
    Very Long Engagement
    Wallace & Gromit (old & new movies)
    Willy Wonka (original)
    25th Hour

    I need to re-do my ratings though...

    The 5 star system is too simple...

    Many movies I gave a 3 or a 4 to but they really should be a 1-2 star movie....

    I wish they had a 10 star system with demicals....

    I mean Godfather > The Terminator, but I cannot give the Terminator a 4 because it'd get messed with many so-so movies that I "mis-rated"

    The Great Raid was a great movie that doesn't get much exposure... If you like War movies, you'll like this...

    Glory Road - better than Remember the Titans imo
