Shall We Dance? [DVD] [2004]
1.  Shall We Dance? [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Richard Gere
The list author says:
  "Whenever I'm asked for an upbeat watch by my friends, I reach for this - they always come back saying how astonished they were by how much they loved it. Ballroom dancing & romance - a lovely movie."
4.51   Used & New from: 0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (65 customer reviews)

The Game [DVD] [1997]
2.  The Game [DVD] [1997] DVD ~ Michael Douglas
The list author says:
  "Bored, rich & coasting banker Michael Douglas gets a 48th birthday present he isn't likely to forget - a game that nearly kills him, but gets the blood pumping. A fantastic thriller with top twists."
4.76   Used & New from: 0.07
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

Confetti [DVD] [2006]
3.  Confetti [DVD] [2006] DVD ~ Selina Cadell
The list author says:
  "With a dream home as 1st prize, 3 whacky couples try to win a crass magazine's competition for best themed wedding. Witty, inventive, touching - a criminally overlooked British comedic gem."
2.49   Used & New from: 0.01
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (40 customer reviews)

Bad Santa [DVD] [2003] [2005]
4.  Bad Santa [DVD] [2003] [2005] DVD ~ Billy Bob Thornton
The list author says:
  "Naughty & crass for all the right reasons, Thornton is one of only a few actors who could pull off this drunken slob who couldn't give a crap, but you still love him. Delicious. You'll chuckle a lot."
2.95   Used & New from: 0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (89 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

The Life and Death of Peter Sellers [DVD] [2004]
5.  The Life and Death of Peter Sellers [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Geoffrey Rush
The list author says:
  "Speaking of unique, Geoffrey Rush is perfectly cast as the flawed, creative genius of Britain's best loved comic. A biopic that is much better than it had any right to be - something of a cult movie."
13.90   Used & New from: 0.31
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

21 Grams [DVD] [2004]
6.  21 Grams [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Sean Penn
The list author says:
  "What an awesome trio - Penn, Del Toro and a stunning Watts doing battle with these two acting giants and coming out just as memorable. The kind of film that stays with you months after seeing it."

4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (70 customer reviews)

A History Of Violence [DVD]
7.  A History Of Violence [DVD] DVD ~ Viggo Mortensen
The list author says:
  "David Cronenberg's most accessable film - with spot-on performances from Mortensen, Bello, Harris & especially Williiam Hurt as the kind of evil, sly acquaintance who'd genuinely give you the squids."
2.88   Used & New from: 0.24
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (133 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Millions [DVD] [2004]
8.  Millions [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Alexander Nathan Etel
The list author says:
  "One of the saints smoking a cigarette and discussing life and its nasty ways of hammering you - is just one of the delights in this 7-year old gets sacks of train robbery money gem. Danny Boyle film."
3.75   Used & New from: 0.25

Evil Woman [DVD] [2002]
9.  Evil Woman [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Jason Biggs
The list author says:
  "Called "Saving Silverman" on R1, this lost peach sees Peet as monster controlling girlfriend taking over sappy Biggs much to the horror of Zahn & Black (a Neil Diamond tribute duo!). See my review."
Used & New from: 1.47

Changing Lanes [DVD] [2002]
10.  Changing Lanes [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Ben Affleck|Samuel L. Jackson|Sydney Pollack|Toni Collette
The list author says:
  "The staggering charisma/righteous anger of Samuel L Jackson and the believability of Ben Affleck's yuppy make this so much more than a film about race & those who have and have not. Excellent watch."

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Sunshine State [DVD] [2003]
11.  Sunshine State [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Angela Bassett
The list author says:

14.  Stir of Echoes [2000] [DVD] DVD ~ Kevin Bacon

15.  Secret Window [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Johnny Depp

17.  Rounders - Special Edition [DVD] DVD ~ Matt Damon

Traffic [DVD] [2001]
18.  Traffic [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Michael Douglas

21.  Vertical Limit [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Scott Glenn

Kinsey [DVD]
22.  Kinsey [DVD] DVD ~ Liam Neeson

The I Inside [DVD]
23.  The I Inside [DVD] DVD ~ Ryan Phillippe
The list author says:
  "Ryan Phillippe can't get to grips with what's happening in his life/mind - murder, betrayal, girlfriend who's soft one minute, a monster the next. Clever & engaging to the messing-with-your-head end."
