So here it is, the big one. These are the five films I could watch over and over. The best films of all time. They are my desk island DVDisks:
This is Top Gun for coastguard rescue swimming. You probably haven’t seen it but it’s amazing. It’s got the old wisened sea dog who’s heroic know no bounds and the new young talented upstart-it’s a phenomenal film. Watch it, watch it now.
I’m a sucker for true stories and sports films and this combines both. Russell Crowe, Renée Zellweger and Paul Giamatti give outstanding performances in this film about a broken old boxer coming back to fight in the Wolrd Heavyweight title bout. Watch it, watch it now.
“Hey Dorice, ya dead man?” “Nah man I gots to finish the race…” Watch it, watch it now.
Top Gun is the Top Gun for fighter planes. It’s amazing. Watch it, watch it now.
This film always has a way of explaining things so as I can understand them. On trips I grow a decent Forrest Gump beard and also love ice cream.
I could watch all five of those, back to back, time and time again!
Close runners up were:
The truffle shuffle? “Hey you guys!”? Top film.
Once We Were Warriors
Brutally emotional and incredibly hard hitting.
