Five perfect movies is trending on Twitter and it's got us thinking what would make the cut for our fave five.
We've all gone movie-mad the past couple of weeks. Spending so much time at home will do that to a person. Bored? Stick on a movie. Sad? Stick on a movie. Tired? Stick on a movie (and inevitably fall asleep two minutes in). We've never watched so many movies in our life - you get the idea.
Well, Twitter users have been discussing what movies they'd class as "perfect", and it's given us a few new titles to add to our must-watch list... you'd expect it to be getting shorter but it seems to grow longer every day.
Covering a range of different genres, everything from cult classics to recent releases to 90s gems and black and white favourites have gotten a shoutout. Have a gander at some of the below.
2. Control (Ian Curtis biopic)
3. Free Solo
4. The wind that shakes the barley
5. Dead mans shoes
Very hard to pick just five.... so avoided obvious acclaimed ones by Kubrick, Tarantino & Scorsese.#FivePerfectFilms #FivePerfectMovies pic.twitter.com/SebCKXbOcu

Some decided to categories their choices, grouping them under headings such as "superhero".
