Top 5, any genre, as perceived when they came out
If you liked it as a kid, but it's corny now, it's still ok to list
1) The Godfather (part 1 of course)
2) Star Wars
3) Raiders of the Lost Ark
4) Strange Brew (rating as given by the 11 year old version of me, who watched it more or less every day one summer and had the dialog memorized the whole way through
5) Groundhog Day
5b) I know, I'm a cheater - SoapDish
Just curious, why "of course"? I know lots of people who prefer the second one. Me, I just like to think of them as one film. I watch them that way too. What Part III? Are you crazy? Stop talking crazy. It never happened. Never. What part of "never" do you not understand?!?

I'm sure I'll change my mind after seeing a few other lists but here goes:
1. The Godfather
2. Apocalypse Now
3. The Searchers
4. The Wizard of Oz
5. Saving Private Ryan ( I include this not because of greatness overall but because of how it's beginning and end left such a strong impact on me.)
Please resist the urge to post a thread about Top Five Foods with Tartrazine in Them.
2. Groundhog Day
3. Die Hard
4. Evil Dead II
5. The Matrix
Lost in America
- Jackie Brown
- Clockwork Orange (re-issue, I'm not that old)
- Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me
- The Abyss
- The Insider
Otherwise you can go see the list of 20 of my favorite movies here :
1 - Leolo
2 - Delicatessen
3 - Blues Brothers/Animal House/Strange Brew/Caddy Shack/Stripes
4 - Raging Bull - when I saw it when i was 15, it shocked, i think it was the first actual good movie i ever saw and changed what i thought about movies.
5 - Jaws - I think I have seen this movie about 500 times and it still amazes me how well it is made - when i saw it at 10, it just scared the crap out of me.
5a - Goodfellas. Never much liked the Godfather series, I always thought Coppola had a problem setting the scenes up and keeping it tight, i would say the same for deerhunter - all of those i like, but they feel sloppy. Goodfellas was a tight well told story, it helped the source material was delivered in much the same way.
