Hey guys, I have a great story for you! Ok. One guy is a small-time gangster. He wants to be in charge of everything and he pursues this goal with all of his energy. On the way he meets and makes friends with other typical gangsters. They yell and beat people up. They also start selling cocaine but then start to do it themselves! Once he reaches the top he can't stay on top and he quickly falls down to as low or lower than he was before. Also there are good musics and some slightly interesting camera stuff. And caricatures. Actually, you know what? Screw it. No real characters for this movie. Instead of having people we can relate to or people that make intelligent decisions let's just have them be "larger than life". That way they will be memorable! Awesome!

you don't know a lot of gangsters do ya?

2. Goodfellas
3. The Match Factory Girl
4. House Party
5. Miller's Crossing

Honorable: Industrial Symphony No. 1, To Sleep with Anger

1. An Angel at My Table
2. Goodfellas
3. The Match Factory Girl
4. House Party
5. Close-Up

Add My Father's Glory, My Mother's Castle and The Grifters to HM.  I probably wouldn't call Industrial Symphony an HM any more.

Biggest shame: Cyrano de Bergerac (and technically Pretty Woman, but I've seen a good portion of it)
Most popular I haven't seen: Back to the Future Part III

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
