For me, it would have to be the Lord of the Rings movies. Being an avid Tolkien fan, I was extremely concerned about the quality of the movies. Fortunately, Peter Jackson did not disappoint. I found many parts of the dialogue that were pulled word for word from the books. The scenery was also very well done. About the only qualm I have with the whole thing is the Gandalf / Saruman fight scene - I thought I had popped into a scene from the Matrix.
I don't think I have one - top of the pile - favorite movie. But if I was forced to pick, I'd probably pick Caddyshack. I've seen it a bazillion times - love it every time! A close runner up is The Right Stuff closely followed by Die Hard. Band of Brothers is easily tied for third in that list.

There is a second tier of favorite movies: silence I the lambs, A Few Good Men, The Rock, Stripes etc. that I also really enjoy watching --- something comforting in appreciating these flow/dialog of these movies. There are quite a few on this list... Too many to list.

Star Wars fits on that second Tier list, too. I'm not a huge sci-fi buff, so it doesn't land at the top. But, as a kid Star Wars was a favorite... And there is a lot of nostalgic value there.

In terms of recent movies (last 10 years)... The most memorable are all comedies, which should come as now surprise since Caddyshack is pretty much my top-o-list. Super Bad.... Wedding Crashers... Old School... Those are my hands-down favorites.

I love all film. Very seldom do I rewatch movies within 5 or more years after viewing, unless I really like it. Mel Brooks, Kevin Smith, Tom Hanks(his war movies) and a few other director/writers I watch repeativly. Robin Hood: Men in Tights is probally one of my most watched movies.

Huge fan of classic films as well. Really way too many to even start..

Lately I've been getting into English produced film, other than James Bond lol
5.Dark knight
6.Sherlok Holmes
Lord of the Rings
Schindlers List
The Longest Day

For me, the favorites would include the following:

Hmm... looks like I prefer the "extended" versions of everything! :)

If I had to pick one....Seventh Samurai. I've seen it several dozen times over the course of 30 years now, and don't think I'll ever tire of it.

If I had a couple of extra slots to fill = Night of the Living Dead & It's a Wonderful Life.
All-time favorite movie ... Jaws. I saw it opening day when I was 9 years old. It was a 10:30 PM show and I was stuck on the front row with a bunch of strangers. I was so terrified I couldn't move. I loved every second of it!
