    1. The LotR trilogy

    It's the only fandom I love more than Star Wars. Or maybe they're tied.....Blast it I'll never be able to choose:)

    2. Star Wars OT

    Well, yeah. Obviously.

    3. Kick-Ass

    I cannot rationalize why I love this film so much. It's just two hours of unadulterated awesomeness.

    4. Inception

    It ain't perfect, but the cool concept and high entertainment value are impossible to ignore.

    5. Jurassic Park

    Blew me away. The animatronics, music, tension, Jeff Goldblum....it's just perfect.

    6. Fight Club

    I quote this film on a daily basis. I wish I could say more, but sadly, I'm not allowed to talk about it;)

    7. Cloud Atlas

    The Wachowskis put all the ingredients for any great film together, mixed it in a pot, put it in the oven, and cooked up the cinematic wonder that is Cloud Atlas.

    8. Django Unchained

    Now, I love me some Pulp Fiction, but when Jamie Foxx said goodbye to Miss Laura, I knew I'd witnessed Tarantino's masterpiece.

    9. 2001: A Space Odyssey

    Visionary and brilliant. This isn't just a movie, it's a work of art.

    10.The Dark Knight

    Entertaining, powerful, and shocking; The Dark Knight is a superhero film done right. Not to mention, Heath Ledger is fantastic.

    I actually think we all love Star Wars for slightly different reasons, or that it resonates with people regardless of their usual interests. It's just so.. Natural, and resonant.

    You surprise me with that one. I've never seen it on anyone's favorites list. Which isn't bad, because I find it fascinating how unique everyone's tastes are, and what resonates with them.
    Never been able to decide if I like it or not, though.. Was just thinking about it a day or two ago, actually. Need to rewatch it. I enjoy Guy Pearce, and I like the score, but.. I don't know what it is that keeps me from saying I like it.

    More surprise additions! I wasn't expecting these two at all. I love Star Trek, and I definitely like/love Generations, but I didn't expect it to be a favorite. Insurrection has, to me, always been "the best two-part TNG episode ever", lol. Neither is a bad choice though, Star Trek is great :) But no First Contact?

    Definitely close to my own list.
    I really like The Thing, only just saw it within the past year. And I HATE to say that I've never seen the original Kong...

    Good to see some love for Jurassic Park and Jeff Goldblum!

    I saw 2001 recently and enjoyed it a lot. It's so artistic, and so leisurely-paced, it's not something I think of myself as being identified with. I think I may be too interested in what other people might think of which films I call favorites..

    But the visual and musical storytelling of that film definitely share a little bit with Star Wars.

    My Top 10:
    1) Star Wars*
    2) The Lord of the Rings*
    3) Jaws
    4) American Graffiti
    5) Forbidden Planet
    6) The Naked Gun
    7) Super 8
    8) Up
    9) The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
    10) 2001: A Space Odyssey

    Honorable Mention: Citizen Kane

    The order fluctuates a lot, and I'm terrible at picking favorites, so this wasn't easy, and the order isn't exact. I typically just list favorites in no order, and un-numbered.

    *I consider Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, from an artistic and philosophical point of view, to be a single work each. To narrow it down, Star Wars could be narrowed to the OT, and probably A New Hope, more because it represents all of Star Wars than because it's a favorite, becaue I think I prefer Empire, just barely. As for Lord of the Rings... I can't separate it. Even the "books" are considered to be one single work.

    Seeing this again after 7 months I realize I was negligent by not adding Ghostbusters (1984) to this list. Need to make it fit in there somewhere...
    I guess I could remove Princess Bride.

    That is a superb list list there! Lolita is a very underrated, creepy and also funny. Nice to see I'm not the only one who considers it one of Kubrick's best.

    Casablanca is a classic and Deer Hunter to this day produces scenes that I have to turn away and not watch at certain points, a superb indication the tension is superbly crafted.

    If you love Vertigo, and have not seen Rope, check it out. It has virtually no cuts (they are there but so subtle you never notice them) so the entire film is almost one giant entire take, with fluid movement and blocking. The premise is deliciously macabre, two college students who study Criminology with a professor take on his challenge that there's no such thing as a perfect murder, by murdering someone and storing the body at a dinner party and invite the professor the party...just to prove they could get away with it.

    My favorite Polanski film is his interpretation of Macbeth.

    Some impressive list here folks, color me impressed!

    Kubrick is one of my favorites film makers, most of his movies are classics, my favorites: 2001, Lolita, The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut, Clockwork Orange and Barry Lindon.

    Deer Hunter has such a good photography and the story its so depressive that's imposible not to get emocional. This movie, Ivan's Childhood (Tarkovsky) and Apocalypse Now are the three greatest movies about war that I've watched in my life.

    I've watched Rope more than ten years ago, I remembered that I liked and the longs shots impressed me, great movie.

    Macbeth i've seen about a month ago and was a nice surprise, I really enjoyed it. My favorites Polanskis are: Repulsion, Dance of the Vampires, Rosemary's baby, The Tenant and Bitter Moon.

    How could i forgot "Metropolis" and i also would like to consider "The Day the Earth Stood Still" from 1951 and "Forbiddden Planet" fom 1956 as true amazing Sci Fi Epics of all time.

    And as for Sci Fi low budget good Movies (B Series) please consider:
    - Dark City
    - Johnny Mnemonic
    - Labyrinth
    - The Fly
    - 5 Th Element

    Actually "Rear Window", "Metropolis" and "The Shining" are the only movies i studied in Art School.
