The dukes top 100 list (no sequence) 1)

Anchorman: Get to see this, its probably one of the most hilarious comedies ever made. An male anchor, who is probably the biggest (and loudest) cinematic "macho hombre" type of guy. When witty and smart Christina Applegate is cast beside him as his female co-ancho (and she tops him on the Bill), he goes totally berserk, and chaos ensues. Plus it has one of the funnyest cinematic fights, with rival newscrews battling each other. Will Ferell is just at his BEST!

Dr Strangelove: Some weird psycho has triggered a doomsday machine, and provoced an american nuclear attack on Soviet Soil. The war room in the White House is occupied by a bunch of crazy warmongers. The american president is in despair. And his Russian counterpart is so royally drunk, that he cant even pick up the phone.... Stanley Cubrick is at the weel and Peter Sellers is just insanely hillarious, playing 4 different characters (amongst them and ex-nazi Dr Strangelove, who appears to have a weird opinion on ideal living conditions, etc), this cold war satire will make you just......laugh your guts out.

Reservoir Dogs: Quentin Tarantino definately IS the king of cult movies. From cleverly borrowing a sequence from "Oceans 11" , to making Michael Madsen really act ( believe me the guy is your average non-actor), to one of the greatest movie quotes in the history of cinema(-Did you kill anybody?- A few cops. - No real people?- Just cops), and then on to a great deal of comic book violence .......all the tarantino stuff is here....

Mathe paidi mou gramata: Seing problem child Nikos Kalogeropoulos run around the village, with the transistor radio blasting "Rasputin", or using the bald head of his brother (Kostas tsakonas) to signal to the rest of his friends.....just classy

Tacones Lejanos: Probably pedro Almodovars best movie (ever), with Victoria Abril proving why she is considered to be one of the greatest spanish actresses.
It also features Luz Cazal's Piensa en Mi.......
