12. The Goonies

Reason why I like it: The full sense of adventure created by Mikey and his Friends.

11. Duck Soup

Basic Story: Rufus T. Firefly is named President/dictator of a bankrupt Freedonia and declares war on neighbouring Sylvania over the love of wealth Mrs Teasdale.

Reason Why I like it: Just watching the Marx brothers at work is brilliant to watch with so many funny scenes that just haven’t seemed to have dated at all.

10. The Departed

Basic Story: Two men from opposite sides of the law are undercover within the Massachusetts state Police and the Irish Mafia, but violence and bloodshed boil when discoveries are made, and both the moles are dispatched to find out their enemy’s identities.

Reason Why I Like It: The main reason I like this is because just when you think you know what is happening something throws you off right up to the end of the film.

9. Donnie Darko

Basic Story: A troubled teenager is plagues by visions of a large bunny rabbit that manipulates him to commit a series of crimes, after narrowly escaping a bizarre accident.

Basic Story: When a Politician has a chance meeting with a beautiful girl, higher powers interfere to stop him seeing her again. Only he spends his days seeking her for one more chance meeting and once he has it must race against the powers to not lose her again.

Reason Why I Like It: The over riding love story through out the action is measured nicely to make a very touching story.
7. Southland Tales

Basic Story: A group of different character come together in their separate stories in a futuristic Los Angeles in the search for a new source of energy.

Reason Why I Like It: The main reason I like this is just how ambitious the idea is even though it can be hard to follow at times, but that adds to the re-watch value of this film.

6. The Brothers Bloom

Basic Story: Two brothers set out on one final con job before going their separate ways, but when a one falls in love with the woman things start to go out of control.
