Budget - $25,000,000
Gross - $30,000,000 (UK+USA)
The Shawshank Redemption is my faviourite film because it gives an interesting point of view of prison life from the inside, and the effects it can have. Also I think that the ending of the film is amazing and very inspirational.
2: Fight Club (David Fincher, 1999)
Box Office UK- $5,400,000 US-$37,000,000
3: Gladiator (Ridley Scott, 2000)
Box Office UK- $30,700,000
The reason Gladiator is my third favourite film is I think everything about the film is epic, especially the battle scenes, and I think the ending is amazing. Also I think the sountrack by Hans Zimmer is brilliant and fits the film perfectly.
4: The Shining (Stanley Kubrick, 1980)
Box Office USA (opening weekend)- $600,000
The reason The Shining is in my top films is because I like the build up of tension right up until the great ending. Also I haven't got bored of it despite having seen it many times.
5: The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring (Peter Jackson, 2001)
Box Office UK- $65,300,000
The reason this film is in my top 5 is that I think the whole film is epic, and like with Gladiatior I like the battle scenes. And again like Gladiator I think Howard Shore did an amazing job with the soudtrack that helps make the film so epic.
