As the title suggests, here is a list of the five best films ever made…
I know I’m one of the only people in the world that thinks Young Guns is the best film ever made, but I’m right. So I guess that settles it.
There is a small chance there are better films out there, but if there are, I haven’t seen them. So they don’t count. The Secret in Their Eyes is a near perfect film. It’s no Young Guns, but it is incredible.
This film actually is perfect. It features every element an action film needs, and doesn’t have anything an action film doesn’t need. Obviously when I say it’s perfect, I’m overlooking most of the acting.
An emotional and involving drama and character study with one of the best ensemble casts ever. The film slowly but consistently gathers pace as the (mostly sorrowful) lives of the characters unfold and entwine.
Frogs randomly fall out of the sky at the end. Lovely.
Heat is one of the top five films ever made for all of the same reasons as Magnolia. Just take some of the weepy stuff from P.T. Anderson’s masterpiece and replace it with guns. There are no frogs either. Just guns.
