    Not in any particular order here:

    Heat
    American Gangster
    Pulp Fiction
    Collateral
    Bladerunner

    Close contenders would be titles such as Street Kings, The Matrix, Good Will Hunting, Miami Vice (Because Mann and because it's the exact modern equivalent of the show, down to the audio direction and camera angles!), The Shawshank Redemption, Public Enemies, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Die Hard and last but not least, Saving Private Ryan.

    And lots more, some of which have been mentioned here already and some which have not. I'm a film addict. I'm ok with it.

    Terminator 2, Top Gun, Black Hawk Down and Kill Bill 1 + 2 would be among my favourites as well. I consider some of the other films I've listed just as good as my top 5.

    Oh boy, one of these lists, and only 5 eh? Here goes then:

    Bladerunner. The...best...film...ever
    Alien. A great take on horror, I mostly hate horror movies...mostly
    American Graffiti. Nice view of coming of age story with a good cast and lovely setting
    Into The Wild. Basically sums up what I'd love to do (except the end bit, of course)
    Airplane. Still undecided, but as The Life of Brian has already been mentioned, I'll put this in as the comedy one

    Sooo many others I could put in there and on another day some might change.
