Batmaniac's Top 5 Movies Of All Time
Hit the jump to check out Batmaniac's Top 5 Movies (and not all of em are comic book films!) of all time. Hit the jump to eave your thoughts and be sure to post your own top 5 lists in the comments section.
You know, I've never really thought about it before, and when I have, I've never really been able to decide what my top 5 movies of all time are. I think with so many movies to love, it's a hard decision to make. So, I've came up with a way that I think is fair and fills my list with variety.
This is how this is going to work. I decided I was going to decide what my favorite movies are in each of genre. Once I had my favorite movies of each genre, I decided the best way for me to pick my top 5 was by thinking If I could only take 5 movies into an impending apocalypse, what movies would they be? Once I had my top five, I then simply decided which one was my favorite in order from one to five. So here it goes...
#1 - Scarface
Well, what can I say. This was the easy decision for me. It was always my number one. Scarface, in my opinion, is the best movie ever made. It's perfect, and I've watched it so many times, I know the words. Al Pacino is was outstanding in his role as Tony Montanna. As for Tony Montanna, what a great character. The iconic scene at the end with Tony holding the Assault Riffle uttering the famous line brings a huge grin to my face every time.

#2 - Blade Runner
I love film Noir and I love Sci-Fi. So, I had to have a movie that embodies both those genres. When I put it like that to myself, the choice became. Blade Runner, in my opinion, is the best Sci-Fi movie ever made, and one of the best Noir movies ever made. So you know, with all that going for it, I think it's only right it makes my number two. It's hard put my feelings on the movie into words. It's original, it's unique, and there's nothing like it. Blade Runner, in my opinion, is a masterpiece. Plus, it features one of the best quotes ever!

#3 - Eddie Murphy RAW
I wanted a comedy on my list. If I had to take 5 movies into an impending apocalypse, I would need a comedy. I decided to give Eddie Murphy Raw the spot. Yes, I know, technically it isn't a movie, but technically it is, and to be honest, I don't care!
I'm sure if you've seen Eddie Murphy Raw, you wouldn't have a hard time understanding why it made the list. Simply put, it's HILARIOUS! I had never laughed so much in my life before I watched Eddie Murphy Raw for the first time, and its rewatchability value is great, since it gets me every time.

I couldn't find a cool gif, so I'd thought I'd leave a video instead.
#4 - The Dark Knight
I decided that I NEEDED to have a comic book movie on my top 5 list, so naturally, I chose my favorite. The Dark Knight is outstanding! I'll never forget how blown away I was when walking out the cinema after seeing this movie. I went in knowing very little, so all twists and turns in the plot made the movie so thrilling. Heath Ledger, god rest his soul, was phenomenal as the Joker. There hasn't been a better performance in a comic book movie than that of Ledger's in The Dark Knight. Christopher Nolan really outdid himself with this movie and I don't think there will ever be a Batman movie as brilliant as The Dark Knight.

#5 - WALL-E
Number 5 was hardest decision, because I didn't know what to pick from the remaining genres. It narrowed it down to A Fistful of Dollars, Inglourious Basterds and WALL-E, but I gave the spot to Wall-E. I think it's a beautifully made movie, and the best animated movie ever made. It's just so touching. I had no expectations and to be honest, before watching the movie, thought it was going to be rubbish, but after I watched it, I loved it. It's not an easy task out doing Pixar's over work either, but WALL-E outdoes them all, and the movie rightfully deserves a place on my top 5 movies of all time.
