1. Jackie Brown - Quentin Tarantino
    Pulp Fiction is his best, but Jackie Brown is my favorite and it is criminally underrated. It's only film that takes place in the real world, rather than QT's cinematic universe. The characters worry about aging, living, and dying. And even the dumbest characters are smart in their own way.
  2. Hannah and Her Sisters - Woody Allen
  3. Goodfellas - Martin Scorcese
  4. Fight Club - David Fincher
  5. Punch Drunk Love - Paul Thomas Anderson
    Boogie Nights and Magnolia are more accomplished, but Punch Drunk just connects in a way and is just a perfect revision of romcomcs and Adam Sandler movies.
  6. Terminator 2: Judgement Day - James Cameron
    Aliens, Terminator and T2: what do they all have in common? James Cameron has a knack for relentless/exhausting films. That's a compliment!
  7. Eyes Wide Shut - Stanley Kubrick
  8. Halloween - John Carpenter
    Hardest choice cause The Thing is also a perfect movie.
  9. A Nightmare on Elm Street - Wes Craven
  10. Jaws - Steven Spielberg
    A.I. comes in 2nd!
  11. Interstellar - Christopher Nolan
    I mean, yeah, The Dark Knight is truly his best, but I picked a non-franchise film. It came down to this and Insomnia. This was a truly original sci-fi studio film, best of its kind since Contact.
  12. Mad Max: Fury Road - George Miller
  13. Children of Men - Alfonso Cuaron
