    A lot of the movies mentioned here would be on my also eligible list. So many great movies already listed. Here goes my list which means that I have probably seen all these movies at least 25 times, but probably more. Just a huge film fan.


    10. The Graduate - There is just something about that last scene

    9. Shawshank Redemption - a little slow at time, but epic

    8 Valley Girl - My only comedy in the top 10. Just a lot of fun and great music. Lots of great lines, too.

    7. Heat - Michael Mann is my favorite director. His long shots are amazing. So much greatness this in this movie, especially that last shot and when the music starts playing - MM at his best.

    6. Dances With Wolves - There is just something about this movie that draws me in every time.

    5. Amadeus - I love Mozart and I love this genius version of his life

    4. The Warriors - My guilty pleasure. Who didn't want to be in a gang after seeing this Walter Hill cult classic?

    3. The Godfather - "Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday". This movie is full of great lines and wisdom. A man's dream come true movie.

    2. Saving Private Ryan - A true epic viewing experience. So emotional. How can you not break down when the older Ryan tells his wife "Tell me that I've led a good life. Tell me that I'm a good man" upon reflecting back on Captain Miller's "earn this" comment.

    1. Slap Shot - I've played hockey all of my life, so this one is just a favorite of mine, not necessarily the best. One of the best sports movies of all time.

    Also eligible list: Any Wes Anderson movie- He's my second favorite director. You always leave his movies feeling good; Big Lebowski - no explanation required; Before Sunset - this one has personal meaning; Once - my favorite musical. When he first plays music with the girl in the music store, it's just a magical scene: Animal House is another classic comedy, Trading Places, too.

  8. #28
    Shawshank Redemption
    Godfather
    12 Monkeys
    Airplane
    Silence of the Lambs
    Back to the Future
    Usual Suspects
    Rounders
    Bad Santa
    Manchurian Candidate

    Others that aren't "favorite" but are totally rewatchable": Rocky IV, PCU, Any Given Sunday, Trading Places (actually that is pretty damn good), Coming to America, Friday Night Lights (Probably would remember it more fondly, but the excellent TV show made the movie forgettable), Clue

    I have to say that I'm astounded at the lists I'm seeing here. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of worthy choices.

    I'll just list movies from two actors that are better than most of the choices I've seen so far. Only one of them was mentioned already. I think everyone should be able to figure out who the two actors are. They're in no particular order because they're all great movies.

    The Color of Money
    The Natural
    The Towering Inferno
    The Sting (the only one I noticed on anyone's list)
    Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
    The Hustler
    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
    Three days of the Condor
    Somebody up There Likes Me
    Cool Hand Luke
    Jeremiah Johnson
    All the President's Men

    The only other movie on anyone's list with either of those actors had Slapshot as their choice.

    Hard to list the top 10, because they'll probably change depending on what mood you're in.

    Anyway:

    Raiders of the Lost Ark
    Original Star Wars Trilogy
    The Dark Knight
    Ghostbusters
    Aliens

    Caddyshack
    Airplane
    Big Trouble in Little China (Yes, I love this movie)
    Top Secret
    Terminator 2

    The Professional
    Back to the Future
    The Karate Kid
    The Princess Bride
    V for Vendetta

    Silence of the Lambs
    Jennifer 8

    I can go on. You get the idea.

    Why don't you just list Charlie Chaplin movies?

    Just watched this on Netflix with my teenage son the other day. He now won't stop re-enacting the classic "Warriors - come out to play!" scene.
