... because all the "cool kids" are doing it

Everyone should post their ten most CRUCIAL CRUCIAL CRUCIAL-ASS movies, like the movies that explain everything about yourselves in your current incarnations (not necessarily your ten favorite movies but the ten movies that you, as a person existing currently, feel would help people get to know you) (they can change later on obviously).

1) Tim Burton's Corpse Bride

2) Musíme si pomáhat (in English known as "Divided we fall") - a very strong, very "Czech" movie about Czechoslovakia occupied by Nazis. A story of an ordinary childless couple who hides a Jew in their flat not because they're particularly brave, but because it's the decent thing to do; a simple story of many themes but above all of humanity and redemption.

3) Kolja (eng. "Kolya") - a beautiful and very complex Czech movie about an old man who forms an unlikely relationship with a little Russican boy in Czechoslovakia occupied by the Russian army

4) Shrek

5) Bridget Jones's Diary

6) Anička s lískovými oříšky - it's a Czech fairytale movie (pretty dark one actually. Some people said it gave them nightmares.). There's supposedly a prince and a romance somewhere, but to me, the main story line is about a witch, her daughter and step-daughter who is cursed by her step-mum when the prince falls in love with her. From that point, it's the best story about sister love that I've ever seen.

7) The Last Samurai

8) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

9) all six Star Wars movies

10) Tai-toi!

And now I want to make a "Ten Czech (Czechoslovakian) absolutely "must-see" movies"", because there are many that haven't made it on this list but are absolutely fabulous. (Like Malá mořská víla - "The little mermaid" from 1976 - it's extremely beautiful and very sad with no bad guys there. Or the numerous Czech comedies. Or all the Svěrák movies. Or plenty other czech fairytales. Or... well. Lots of movies.)
