It tells me that the video is unavailable which could be due to my laptop or the fact that it's on Hulu and is only available Stateside.

But if Serenity is in the top 5 then I say that's great and rightly so. It deserves it.
Can someone please tell me what number it got (number one I hope) and what the other four were?
There an't be too many choice for a movie from a TV show as it's usually the other way round. Firefly. X-Files. Sex And The Shitty. Star Trek....err....mind has gone blank.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


Other than Firefly/Serenity, their picks suck.

In reverse order:
5: Firefly/Serenity
4. The Untouchables
3. Heat (supposedly based on an old TV movie)
2. Borat (character introduced on The Ali G Show)
1. The Fugitive

Cheers.
I could go with The Fugitive and Untouchables but maybe not Top 5. Heat is a cheat as it's not a TV show (yes it was taken from Mann's own TV movie called LA Takedown, I think).

It does suck.
Firefly is rightly there but in that list it appears to be there because they didn't want the fallout if it wasn't included.
Heat is there because it's a widely respected movie and they wanted to add what could be called a classic. But as I said it's a cheat.
Borat? Really? Did anybody really think this was a great movie. I think it's there just so there's a 'comedy' in the list.
The Fugitive and The Untouchables are there because both TV shows and their movies were popular. Fair enough, I like them both, but not Top 5.
And I'm so glad Sex And The Shitty didn't in, kind of surprised it didn't. List was probably created by a man.

Except for Serenity, not particularly agreeing with their list... and yes, there is some suckage evident there.

My list!

Serenity
Batman Returns
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Star Trek: First Contact
Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie

No particular order, but a list based on a good connection to the TV source material, while making a film with its own identity. They also have a good mix of entertainment plus some substance there too.

I don't know why it did that because I haven't had that problem happen to me before. Sorry.

But yeah, it sucks big hairy yarblockos that you guys overseas can't get Hulu. Also that RT placed Serenity in the 5 hole, somehow I feel that it should be #1, especially in the present company of films. Major suckage!
