The Contenders: Page 2

21 Inglourious Basterds
22 The Great Escape

A hilarious movie about world war 2. Fairly accurate too. It's pretty surprising how it's a comedy about a horrible prison camp.

This is an AMAZING movie. I first saw it when I was about 9. Every since then, I've loved it!!

26 War Horse
27 A Beautiful Mind

Great movie! Russel Crowe is one of the best actors in the present time!

28 Full Metal Jacket
29 Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
30 Pirate Radio

Also known as The Boat that Rocked, this was set in the 1960s, a time when the BBC banned rock and roll on the airwaves so these pirate radio stations smuggled in the tunes. - jezza0

This was the true story about regular British guys who caused a rebelion against the goverment and the BBC by airing rock and roll on boats.

Bill Nighy, Chris O'Dowd, Gemma Arteton, Nick Frost and Jack Davenport are only part of this ensemble comedy.

Funny yet accurate at the same time.
