I'm fond of A Few Good Men. "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!"
My number one is Platoon, my second is Forrest Gump.
Of the more recent movies, O, Brother Where Art Thou?
Old movies: It Happened One Night; The Quiet Man;
The Producers (with Zero & Gene).
The Man Who Knew Too Little with Bill Murray, HILARIOUS but pretty clean!
I have been watching Gone With The Wind today and I find it to be an exceptional movie.
That movie had me rolling on the floor with laughter. GREAT movie!
What About Bob.
The Third Man
North by Northwest
Last of the Mohicans
High Plains Drifter
My Cousin Vinny
I enjoy good propaganda films (but aren't they all, these days, if you leave off the qualifier 'good').
Soldier of Orange is worth the time. Wake Island. Lady Jane. Triumph of the Will (ending is a bit cheesy). Movies that everyone should see at least once would include Olympia 2 (Olympia 1 only for sports fans and cinema fans) and Birth of a Nation.
Bridge Over the River Kwai
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King is tied with Gettysburg for #1
But on the lighter side: Groundhog's Day
I just happen to have a list...
The Top 26 Greatest Movies Ever Made are:
Ride With The Devil
The Princess Bride
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
A Christmas Story
The Shawshank Redemption
The Lord of The Rings Trilogy
Gods and Generals
The Green Mile
Master And Commander
How to Train Your Dragon
Die Hard Series
True Grit (1969)
True Grit (2011)
The Fifth Element
Robin Hood: Men in Tights
The Matrix Trilogy
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
For me it would be the LOTR Trilogy (you can't separate them in my opinion). I also really like Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator, Troy & Braveheart.
So many good movies mentioned! In fact my top 3 were already named....
Last of the Mohicans (the last 10 minutes of that movie alone are worth the price of admission!)
Recently I have really enjoyed The King's Speech, Hugo, and The Muppet Movie which almost brought me to tears when the Muppet Show Theme Song came on. (I grew up on the Muppets)
My Top Five:
5) The Princess Bride
4) Pride and Prejudice (BBC version)
3) Le Miserables (Liam Neeson)
2) Nicholas Nickleby (2002)
1) The Matrix (Original)
Two of my favorites are:
The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Ok some might not like this one.
The Good the Bad and the Ugly, Doctor Strangelove (most likely an unpopular choice), Unforgiven, and the Brave Little Toaster
Lawrence of Arabia
I had "Last of the Mohicans" in mind before I even read any responses. I am glad to see I am in good company.
"Hoodwinked," "Napoleon Dynamite," "Nacho Libre," "Elf," and the Pink Panther movies are all good funny movies.
I also loved "O Brother" and purchased the soundtrack, which is dynamite.
I'm a big fan of the Shawshank Redemption. Tim Robbins' best movie in my opinion. The Green Mile is also excellent. 10 points to the person who knows who the author of these two gems is off the top of their head.
The LOTR trilogy is obviously up there. I enjoy the Two Towers the most, with The Return of the King in second and The Fellowship of the Ring in third.
I enjoy the Matrix trilogy, but they got successively worse over time. The last one was watchable, but not great. The first one was outstanding and set the bar high for science fiction films for me. Since that time, few sci-fi films have really done it for me.
I'm happy to see Serenity on someone's list. Really enjoyed that movie. Highly underrated. I'd like to see further films made based on the Firefly storyline.
The Star Trek re-make. Top notch, and I'm not a Trekkie in the least. Maybe that's why I loved the movie.
Amistad is an outstanding movie. I didn't see it until a few years ago and I've gotta say it's great.
Going to catch flak for this but one of my favorite movies is The Watchmen. Should you watch this film though, get the edited version and be prepared to fast forward. Hollywood took an otherwise intriguing movie and made sure to add in completely unnecessary sexual garbage that literally adds nothing to the story line.
Dr. Strangelove is most certainly not an unpopular choice. A pristine example of black comedy.
There are others. Can't think of them right now.
Stephen King. Please deposit my 10 points.
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly ftw
Wow, Rocky Horror Picture Show? Explain this one lol
