It's that time of year again, girls and boys. We're doing another list thingy, but because finding a consensus in rather person things can be quite difficult, we decided to cut a big top 10 into two smaller of five. This has the added benefit of putting on Hard Mode in our co-op lists: Picking your own entries, but not being able to defend your choices yourself. If your picks are being misrepresented, then tough luck. This time we'll be doing one where we'll pick 5 of our all-time favourite movies in no particular order. Let's get things started.

|'OLOLOLOLOLOL' - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 1775|
The Good The Bad & The Ugly

Back To The Future
|Look out, Marty! It's another geek referencing hoverboards!|
|If a rat can cook, why can't my flatmates?|
John Carpenter's The Thing
|I've got a the thing for these guys.|
So in summary, Tobi’s selections are a pretty broad range of stuff, he’s prettymuch just gone and picked a film from every major genre. He chose films that are generally accepted by the mainstream to be of high quality, but only because he agrees with that. I think all his choices had some very memorable bit in them that really stood out to him and affected him personally, whether it’s something that warmed his heart or chilled him to the core.

|You might not have heard of this, it's pretty underground.|
|I give this a thumbs up while slowly descending into molten steel.|
|Blogging makes me FEEL GOOD|
Laputa: Castle in the Sky
|That's a nice flower sir but we're looking for the WMDs.|
|Hey chillax it's just my Taoist zombie army.|
Now to close this off, I couldn’t help but notice the big pattern of sci-fi adventures and monsters in all of these. The only odd one out is Laputa, though it still has a technologically advanced city and ro-bros. I think it all these things stress the creative angle of the stories and visuals.
And that's a wrap, folks. I don't think we've taught the world a whole lot about ourselves, but at least now we have some insight in how people will judge you when you mention you like certain flicks.
