    It's hard to narrow it down to just 10; it becomes so random, dependent largely on what you can remember off the top of your head and how many wonderful films you forget.


    1. Casablanca
    2. The Godfather Trilogy
    3. Rocky I, II and III
    4. Groundhog Day
    5. Pulp Fiction
    6. Apocalypse Now
    7. Elizabeth and Elizabeth: The Golden Age
    8. Phenomenon
    9. Die Hard and Die Hard 2: Die Harder
    10. Diner
    11. Rain Man
    12. Frankie and Johnny
    13. The Fisher King
    14. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    15. Manhattan...hell, let's just say ALL of Woody's films!
    16. The Silence of the Lambs
    17. Reservoir Dogs
    18. Celestial Clockwork
    19. Defending Your Life
    20. Caddyshack
    21. Hero and House of Flying Daggers
    22. Kramer vs. Kramer
    23. Kill Bill I and II
    24. Terminator I and II
    25. 50 First Dates
    Even at 25, I simply ran out of room...could have listed another 50, easy. I'm talking about real favorites, movies that I pop in all the time.

    Others that have to be mentioned...

    - James Bond (all of them pretty much)
    - Army of Darkness (and Evil Dead of course)
    - Repo the Genetic Opera
    - The Godfather series

    I really can't do a top 10 list like actually have them numbered because it's very tough to do, IMO.

    Godfather Trilogy
    This is Spinal Tap
    Donnie Brasco
    Casino
    Goodfellas
    Shawshank Redemption
    Forrest Gump
    Clerks
    Watchmen
    Blues Brothers

    There's more but obviously it's tough to compile a list off the top of my head.

    This is tough with so many good movies, I'll give it a shot.

    - I'm counting the Spaghetti westerns as one. [Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars more, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly]
    - Tombstone
    - Forrest Gump
    - Unforgiven
    - American Psycho
    - Office Space
    - Gladiator
    - Terminator 2: Judgment Day
    - A Few Good Men
    - Scarface

    Honorable mention: Jurassic Park. The story was pretty good but visually it was an amazing movie for its time. I vividly remember seeing it in theaters as a teenager.

    These could have easily made my list; Kill Bill did.

    Much Ado quite literally changed the course of my life, as did some of the films on my list; Clue was genial - Madeline Kahn was brilliant in that.

    Off the top of my head:

    The Rock
    The Breakfast Club
    Empire Strikes Back
    LOTR: The Two Towers (middle movies of trilogies just seem better?)
    Wall-E
    Dumb and Dumber
    The Dark Knight
    Glory
    The Hunt for Red October
    Ocean's 11

    This probably isn't anywhere close to my actual top ten. I could probably garauntee these are all in my top 30 or top 40.. but I'm sure there are just so many that I'm not remembering..
