I too also have to break it down by genre, although Star Wars can remain at the top as an overall winner.

Sci-Fi:
Star Wars, the first one (Episode IV)
I was just a kid but nothing has since rivaled the jaw dropping experience it gave me back then.

Action:
Raiders of the Lost Arc (much the same as above)

Fantasy:
Lord of the Rings (entire trilogy)

Comedy:
Monty Python and the holy Grail

War:
The longest Day (maybe because I just watched it again lately on TV)

Horror:
The Exorcist (The only horror movie that can still make me queasy.)

Not sure where it fits:
The Princess Bride (As Jake mentioned, i just has to be somewhere.)

Can't bring mself to really pick a favorite drama. There are just too many movies made in this category I can't pick one.

My not so secret indulgence:
Highlander, Only #1. The rest should never have been made.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Still my favorite of all time. Has all the elements that make a great classic movie.

And I can't leave out Citizen Kane -- another favorite with so much innovation for its time.

When I first saw this thread, The Last of the Mohicans came to mind, so Iím pretty sure thatís my all time favorite movie.

Then I started seeing other movies listed that I really like or at least remember liking. Excalibur is one of them. I remember loving that movie when it first came out. Iíve bought it on HD-DVD and watched it again not too long ago. It was still a great movie, just a bit hoaky. I sure would like to see this one remade following the original with Merlinís character as is.

I like way too many movies to have a top five. I kept it under 20.

1- Last of the Mohicans
2- Excalibur
3- Blade Runner
4- 300
5- Braveheart
6- Gladiator
7- Tombstone
8- Cadyshack
9- Sahara
10- Saving Private Ryan
11- Escape From New York
12- Hallowing (the original)
13- King Arthur
14- Reign of Fire
15- Pulp Fiction
16- Taken
17- V for Vendetta
18- American Werewolf in London
19- The Warriors

Doh! Saving Private Ryan, I knew I would forget an obvious one. Caddyshack is up there too, the scene with Murray hitting the flowers, and the one with Dangerfield dancing in the fairway, are pure gold.

Loc: It's all about the location.
The thing that spoils a lot of WW2 combat movies for me is the use of American/Russian equip't, usually tanks, being passed off as German. I don't expect them to use any of the small handfull of surviving Panthers or JagdTigers, but at least use a 1/6th scale true replica or something....T-34's with a squared "Tiger" body ruin it for me.

Hmmm, no one has mentioned The Shawshank Redemption, love Morgan Freeman. I also loved The Green Mile, also not mentioned, I think.

Don't forget

Terminator 2
Blade Runner
Close Encounters
True Lies
and i know itx cheezy but hey, Titanic!

I would have never guessed.

In the war category I would have to toss out Das Boot.
