Fight Club - Two Disc Set (1999) [DVD]
2.  Fight Club - Two Disc Set (1999) [DVD] DVD ~ Brad Pitt
The list author says:
  "A great story, a (very) unexpected end.  Anarchy, humour, a great Brad Pitt performance.  Fantastic.  Not much to do with fighting, so don't be put off by the title girls!"
£6.95   Used & New from: £0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (375 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

American Beauty [DVD] [2000]

Amelie [DVD] [2001]
4.  Amelie [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Audrey Tautou
The list author says:
  "A stunning film.  Funny, clever and fasinating.  Do NOT be put by the fact it's french with subtitles, this is one of the best films ever made."
£3.84   Used & New from: £0.04
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (314 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

12 Angry Men [DVD] [1957]
5.  12 Angry Men [DVD] [1957] DVD ~ Henry Fonda
The list author says:
  "A simple concept.  This film is done almost entirely in one room.  Triumph of the underdog, brains against bullies etc.  Made in 1957 and absolutely great."
£12.00   Used & New from: £3.26
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (205 customer reviews)

Heat [DVD] [1995]
6.  Heat [DVD] [1995] DVD ~ Al Pacino

7.  Blade Runner (The Director's Cut) [DVD] [1982] DVD ~ Harrison Ford
The list author says:

Monty Python and the Holy Grail -- Two-disc set [DVD]
10.  Monty Python and the Holy Grail -- Two-disc set [DVD] DVD ~ Graham Chapman
