In no particular order:

1. The Godfather Trilogy (esp. Godfather Part II)
2. On Golden Pond
3. All the President's Men
4. Fight Club
5. The Old Star Wars Trilogy (esp. Return of the Jedi)
6. Stand by Me
7. Donnie Darko
8. Trainspotting
9. Memento
10. Natural Born Killers

I was thinking about putting Happiness on here too, but I've only seen it once. Same with Schindler's List. And M*A*S*H. But I remember they all made an bigger impact than most other movies. Right?

1 - Pulp Fiction (best. movie. ever.)
2 - Fight Club (read the book too)
3 - Shawshank Redemption (already listed but what can I say - you have good taste, read this book, too)
4 - American History X (watched it twice right off the bat)
5 - Pi (will make your head twitch by the end of it)
6 - Band of Brothers series (all other war movies will look like GI Joe)
7 - Primal Fear (Norton's first role)
8 - The Last Dragon (when you got that glow ...)
9 - A Few Good Men (I'm a sucker for Demi Moore in uniform)

Yeah, her mammalian protuberances are simply fascinating. She's tough, too, I'll take her.

You guys have excellent tastes for movies. I'll add a few favorites as well.

Apocalypse Now
The Wall(Roger Waters)
Friday(I literally know every line in that movie)
Ace Ventura/Pet Detective(Jim Carey is my hero)
Scarface
Devils Advocate(a must see)
Down and Out in Beverly Hills
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Stand By Me
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
2001/A space Odysee

There are many more favorites, but none come to mind right now.

Yes we all definitly share a very similar taste in movies.

Though I got to say I just don't see whats so awesome about 2001 Space Odessy, what am I missing here? I just can't get through that movie. The other Kubrick movies are great though

Dr. Strangelove
A Clockwork Orange
Eyes Wide Shut
Full Metal Jacket

and I'll recommend :

Adaptation.
About Shimit
Igby Goes Down
Emperors Club

I just saw Lost in Translation the other day. Very interesting movie. But one things stands out and I have to write it down - I've fallen in love with Scarlett Johansen. My God that girl is gorgeous ...

1. Star Wars ( if they don't count as one, Return of the Jedi )
2. Scarface
3. Cruel Intentions
4. School of Rock
5. Finding Nemo
6. SpaceBalls
7. Memento
8. The Usual Suspects
9. Twelve Monkeys
10. The Matrix


the is in no order whatsoever.

I'm a big Movie buff and lists like these suck and are never accurate. Pi was an awesome movie, outstanding. It was The Da Vinci Code without religion and high off weed!

Mullholland Drive and anything else by David Lynch always hit the spot!

Fight Club was a masterpeice.

and you can not deny anything done by Julia Roberts. Pretty Woman, I must admit, is a movie I can't get enough of. My scene is when she goes into the store where they denied her service. She was looking all Jackie Kennedy like and asked the lady if she worked for commission.

The lady answers yeah, and Julia, acting like the biggest thug goes, "big mistake, BIG!" and flinches at her. Oooh classic!

I'm a bigger Al Pachino fan. Scent of a Woman, THE GODFATHERS, Serpico, Devils Advocate, you know it.

Kill Bill wasnt meant to be serious.

It was not quite a parody, just a marriage of odd ideas that mock the Bruckhiemer type films.

Do you really think that Taratino, the man behind Pulp Fiction (which was made to be somewhat serious) would EVER use the term: "Deadly Viper Assassination Squad?"
