I have already tried this with the miniseries, but I thought movies would be interesting. I have just seen what I believe to be the best Australian movie of all time. I would like to see what others believe to be the most popular [b41]Australian[/b41] film.

[size=1841]Please give your [b41]TOP 5[/b41] favourite Australian films in order of popularity...I will update the results every couple of days.[/size41]

My favourites are as follows:

5. Strictly Ballroom
4. The Castle
3. Gallipoli
2. Moulin Rouge
and...

1. Picnic at Hanging Rock


So therefore, the most popular movie at the moment is Picnic at Hanging Rock!!!! :P :lol:

No, but it'll be interesting, so everyone, vote for your favourite Aussie film of all time.
Idiot! I backed Tungsten Strike in the Melbourne Cup, and it ran last...how shameful.

I'm assuming you mean locally produced films not American backed blockbusters that come over here to be filmed. If that is the case, then Moulin Rouge would not fit in the catagory.

1. Lantana
2. The Dish
3. Murial's Wedding
4. The Interview
5.

Actually, it would, seeing as it has an Australian director, as well as certain Australian cast members. However, I can see where you are coming from.
