I just was flipping channels on TV and saw Tombstone was on, which I really like. So it got me thinking about my favorite movies of all time. I got it down to a top 5, in no particular order.

Tombstone
Braveheart
Matrix
Wedding Crashers
The Prestige

Thats a tough one.

Lord of the Rings is right up there.
Gone with the Wind. Given when it was made, it has really stood the test of time.
AI has to be the best Scifi movie

Easy. Excalibur.

Don't know why, I just LOVE that movie. First time I ever saw Patrick Stewart too. Too bad it never will be HD. I've seen a letterbox version and it was just horrible PQ.

It's been forever since I've seen Excalibur. I remember wishing it had been better. I like the King Arthur story, so I sort of viewed that as a missed opportunity. Maybe my perception of it would be different now. But yeah, I wonder if Bryan Singer is still thinking about doing a remake.

Iím puzzled by why I like Excalibur so much. Might have been the altered state I was in the first time I saw it but for some reason the movie just works for me.

I have quite a lot of favorite movies. It's hard to get down to just a few. I'll just mention five that I like a lot and try not to think too much about it, since I could easily keep shuffling other selections in and out of this list.

Sense and Sensibility
Bottle Rocket
Kill Bill: Volume 2
Happy Gilmore
Shaolin Soccer

I only have two that stand out, just because of re-watchability factor.

Gladiator
Top Gun

Second teir could go on forever, but I'll pick the top four.

Tombstone
Scarface
300
Schindler's List

And of course, comedies like Happy Gilmore, Wedding Crashers, Austin Powers etc are great for brainless rainy afternoons.

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

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.

Hahaha, that is funny RayLewis. Its sort of like asking your favorite colour in a business interview and they don't answer green. If you want to really mess with someone during a job interview ask them a bunch of vague behavioural type questions.

That would be funny, Dr.House, but I'd be afraid to go too dry on the humor, as it may be lost on the person I'm speaking to. Now, if an interviewee didn't get that my question and response are a joke, they actually would be too dumb to work here. Fortunately, that has yet to happen. We instead usually end up talking about movies, which I'd rather do than discuss things that are relevant to my job.

Oooh! Harold and Maud. I forgot about that one. I didn't put it on my top 5, but it has the all time best opening scene.

I think the line is....
"What is the air speed velocity of a fully laden Swallow?"
"African or European"
"aaaiaieeieee"

I really enjoyed There Will Be Blood. Daniel Day Lewis really owns his character, as usual. The movie is totally engrossing.

It didn't do it for me like it did for most critics. I did, however, like No Country for Old Men a lot. Javier Bardem's villain is one of the best of all time.

I love the part in Boondock Saints where the detective is gathering evidence at the crime scene. Good movie!

I've been sitting here going through all his routines with the Legos! They are really funny!

"This is Jeff Vader."

Someone linked to these a while back on the forum, right?

For me, without a doubt it would have to be The Commitments. Apart from the story, it has a killer soundtrack.

Wow, this thread has drawn out some old-timers, or should I say seldom-posting but long-registered board members. Cool.
