Hands down Mad Max (1979). A lot of people would rather prefer one of the sequeles which are also good, but original has a very special place in my heart.

hey dib...everything old is new again...

sorry to see 'cosi' and 'japanese story' didn't make the cut, but i'm glad to see a few of my other suggestions did...

this time around...i would pick from 'muriel's wedding' or 'shine', with 'the dish' close behind...

peace...

All of the list is quite good But I would have to say original Mad Max then RED. I feel that the movies with well known actors in them are at the end of the list re: Australia; MI2; Shine.
Crocodile Dundee i & ii should not be on the list as they are not good movies at all. Paper Back writer was better then Crocodile Dundee.
