For me, nothing tops these movies:

Shawshank Redemption
As Good As It Gets
Dead Poet's Society
American Outlaws
Disney's Fantasia
A River Runs Through It

I'll watch them anytime they are on.

Ooooo! Shawshank Redemption!!! I don't own it, but everytime it comes on, I can't seem to NOT watch it. The end always makes me cry. I'm so happy for Red and Andy...especially Red. Morgan Freeman is such a wonderful actor.

Ooh...what fun...no particular order, of course. We keep a list so that when one of us is sick in bed, the other knows what movies to get (we also have a "guilty pleasures" list for when we're mentally fried and want to watch something silly)

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
Orlando
Barry Lyndon
Dangerous Liaisons
Dr. Strangelove
A Clockwork Orange
Dogma
Boys in the Band
Trainspotting
The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
The Taming of the Shrew
Shadows & Fog
Murder by Death
Torch Song Trilogy
History of the World, Part I (also Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein)
Any Monty Python
The Three Musketeers/Four Musketeers (1974 version)
Cromwell
The World According to Garp
(there are several others, but the list is just too long...I am leaving out some major classics as they're always a given)

Some of the Guilty Pleasures:
All That Jazz
White Nights
The Big Chill
War of the Roses
Guys & Dolls
The Full Monty
Saturday Night Fever
The Princess Bride
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
Dazed and Confused
Flashback
Baby Boom
Any Mystery Science Theater 3000

You get the idea....since we only get out to the movies once or twice a year (there's just not much we'll pay $7 to see...we are insanely cheap), we tend to wait for everything to come out on video :) And then we forget to rent it when it does come out. Hopeless goobers, we are.

I love a good depressing/sweet movie that makes you feel somewhat better about your own [perceived] lousy life:

The Royal Tenenbaums
High Fidelity
The Professional
Garden State (love!)

The ones I'm always going back to:

Ever After
Wives & Daughters
Where the Heart Is
The Wedding Singer
A Christmas Story (but only during the holidays)
Beauty & The Beast

OMG! I LOVE "Where the Heart Is"!! I watched it EVERY time it came on HBO, then the Oxygen channel got it and played it every weekend for like 3 months. After that...I went out and found the DVD. I call it the "Wal-mart baby movie." I'm always quoting it too.

"I don't know...Pez, Twinkie...one of 'em" :lol:

BTW, High Fidelity is one of my "Top 10" favorite novels. Nick Hornby is so brilliant. I can't wait for his next novel!!

I LOVE Double Jeopardy, Along came a Spider, and Kiss the Girls. As you can tell, I like Ashley Judd :D

My favorite animated movie is Shrek...I could watch it over and over and over and over and over....

Funny, I'd watch all of those movies for Morgan Freeman! :) There's just something soothing/comforting about his voice. I'm with you, though, I think Ashley Judd is wonderful. I think she's such a beautiful woman...above so many of the other actresses of today. If only she'd work more...

Some of my favorites:

- Star Wars Trilogy (the original, but I actually did enjoy the prequels thusfar)
- Lord of the Rings (all three)
- Vintage Disney (i.e. Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin, Little Mermaid, Lion King, etc)
- All of the Pixar movies! (Toy Story 1 & 2, Bug's Life, Monsters INC, and of course Finding Nemo)

Some other favorites that come to mind:
- Fantasia (and Fantasia 2000)
- Harry Potter movies (NO comparison to the books of course, but I still enjoy them)
- American Beauty
- Office Space (hilarious!!! Anyone who has ever worked in a cubicle must see this movie..)
- Spaceballs!
- Kill Bill (both volumes)

I'm sure there are many more...
