Not sure how you like those but you've got all of my top 7 accounted for except Shallow Grave, so if you are a fan of Boyle's, you should check that one out.

Yeah, I've always been curious about Shallow Grave, but outside of Millions, I don't love Boyle's work (and I straight-up loathe Slumdog).

The Beach is a wicked fun ride, yall. Into the Wild meets Gosford Park! Say goodbye to boredom, say hello to Boyledom.

1. Sunshine
2. Trainspotting
3. 28 Days Later
4. Slumdog Millionaire
5. Shallow Grave
6. Trance

When people criticise the last third of Sunshine, I wonder if they watched the first two thirds. That's a great top 5.
