Pretty simple; I've chosen some completely unrelated films based purely on the fact that I love them all....for entirely different reasons. There are comedies, artsy stuff, ultra-violence, thrillers, gangster dramas and so forth yet they all feel like classics in one way or the other...maybe except for The Manchurian Candidate and Bronson. I guess we'll see in the future.

Which one tickles your fancy the most?

I've seen only 4 out of 10 on the list. Out of these 4 I really like Midnight Run. A twisty movie with a great Robert De Niro performance.

Great choice AndreyClap
I saw it last night (with Swedish subtitles no lessLOL). I'd completely forgotten about it. Well shame on me, because it is such an entertaining movie. No artsy stuff whatsoever but a sensational cast that really fires on all cylinders. Charles Grodin is hilarious as The Duke.

The first five are long time favorites.
From the second five I'm only familiar with Midnight Run which is also a favorite.
As a big fan of Kurt Vonnegut novels I'm embarrassed to say I have not seen
Slaughterhouse Five. But I do own Mother Night with Nick Nolte.

Ouch! Damn you've been missing out Gary! Sorry to say so, but yeahLOL
I think George Roy Hill did a wonderful job of translating Vonnegut's dark humour onto the screen.

Lot of great films here but I'm choosing Dog Day Afternoon.  Such a fully committed performance from Pacino.
 
Loved Midnight Run too, not to mention Blow-Up and The French Connection.

As John Travolta says in the completely underwhelming Swordfish, it is genuinely Lumet's best work and up there for Pacino (a man that always delivers).
Based on a true story too. (Such a crazy little tale you just know it's got to be realLOL)

Hopefully I won't be missing out for long since I'll be going on Amazon shortly to see if it's available.
You should watch Mother Night if you can. Some may find it a bit slow but if you like the book then
that's not really a problem. John Goodman shows up in a couple of scenes as The Blue Fairy  Godmother.

Embarrassed  I liked Swordfish (great cast).
The slow motion circular scene where the lady wearing the claymore mine vest runs into the street 
and blows up is amazing special effects cinematography.

Let me take a wild guess; the title alludes to something dirty/sexy?

We have our fair share of insane revamped movie titles here in Denmark tooLOL 
The 1978 Clint Eastwood movie 'Every which way but loose' fx turned into 'Bankekød til slemme drenge' (Stewed beef for bad boys)
The follow up 'Every which way you can' from 1980 trumps it though....in spades! 'Seje bøffer og hårde bananer' = Cool steaks and tough bananasLOLLOLLOL 

Oh and you need to watch The French Connection, SamuelStern Smile

Thanks for the heads up. I'll remember that. Nick Nolte and John Goodman sound good to me (John Goodman is fantastic...hell even in small cameos. He always manages to make his stamp on whatever he appears in, and that is quite the feat in itself).

Nah. According to imdb it's "Os Incorruptíveis Contra a Droga" (The Incorruptibles Against Drugs) Sleepy

Those are really funny LOL

Yeah, I know. My blu-ray player is connected to a CRT TV on my music appreciation room, to listen to audio blu-ray's, so I can't watch anything properly there Tongue

^^  She could really hit a golf ball, and I'm sure that was a classic novel she was
reading in the sun room. You have to admire an educated girl.
