    Was going to mention They’re A Weird Mob.

    Re Two Hands, one of the scenes was filmed out the front of where I worked at Waterloo, I got sick of seeing the dummy being run over for two days in a row.

    A bit of a guilty pleasure this movie too but as you say quality wise it does leave a bit to be desired but starring Australia’s very own James Bond George Lazenby, also it spawned one of the best one hit wonders ever, Sky High by Jigsaw or known in Australia as British Jigsaw not to confuse them with the local group Jigsaw.

    1: The Proposition, hands down. Flawless, violent, uncompromising Aussie western.

    For the other spots it’s probably be out of

    The Babadook
    Chopper
    The Mad Max Series
    The Castle
    Romper Stomper
    Bad Boy Bubby

    Not all time but split into categories (that the majority of the films that are in are complete rubbish), rogue and Blackwater are at the top of the list of croc movies as well as the reef for shark movies. Can do creature features

    This thread has made me want to do an Aussie movie marathon, some absolute gems in here.

    3 that I didn't see mentioned that are all great movies for their own reasons.

    Pricilla
    Animal Kingdom
    Strictly Ballroom

    Yes, and the largely inaccurate storyline. Once I learnt to watch it as a piece of entertainment it's actually quite a fun and enjoyable piece.

    Enjoyable. Hard to rate in the top three - sort of like Don's Party.
