Top 10… Films I need to see

I thought I’d be a little different this week and rather than do an ordered top 5, I’d do an unordered top 10. This is inspired by the recent Sight and Sound top 50 films of all time list as it was another reminder of some of the phenomenal films I am yet to see. So here in order of age are my top 10 films I really want to catch up with.

Top 5… London movies

As we are in the middle of the London 2012 Olympics it seemed fitting to produce a movie top 5 related in some way. So as most sport movies are American based I thought I would go with the best films set in London or where the our capital city plays a significant role.

Top 5… Trilogies

The Dark Knight Rises promises to end Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy in style when it opens on Friday so here is my rundown of the best trilogies of all time. Here are my rules:

  1. To make it a trilogy there needs to be a solid thread tying the films together, Park Chan-wook’s “Vengeance trilogy” are not strongly connected enough to count.
  2. There must be no fourth in the series, the Alien Quadrilogy is out.
  3. Prequels and reboots don’t count towards a trilogy so the X-Men films are in (although unlikely to make an appearance).

Top 5… Religious movies

It’s Easter so I thought this was a good excuse to do a top 5 list of religious movies. This doesn’t mean cheesy Christian films but any film where religion or faith is an important plot piece. Important exclusions  are films where there is religious metaphor. This will prevent The Matrix from making it into two Top 5 lists in a row!
