I'd have to say, for me, it's "The Departed". What a great movie all around, but certainly had me on the edge of my seat.

I saw the original Chinese version so I wasn't too surprised or tense over The Departed. Looking back, one of the movie that was very tense was Kurt Russell's Executive Decision. Man, that movie kept me guessing. But, I believe the best movie was Bruce Willis' 6th Sense was the most intense, edge of my seat movie.

calnbs, I saw Infernal Affairs after the Departed! I enjoyed them both, but adore the cast on The Departed.

I thought The Edge, with Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin, was very suspenseful. As a matter of fact, it had it all. It's a great movie (poor Harold Perrineau).

That's a great choice. Truly a sleeper.

SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. A good friend of mine, a U.S. Army combat veteran, had to stop that movie when the lights go out in the basement, fast forward to the end to make sure Clarice was okay, then go back and watch. He couldn't take the suspense.

JAWS. Fake-looking shark and all, this is still one of the greatest adventure thrillers ever made. "Smile you son of a ---!" is still a one-liner for the ages.

RETURN OF THE JEDI definitely has its problems. But when I was 11 years old, watching Luke die under the power of the Emperor, no one in the entire theater could blink. And when Vader stepped in to save his son and pitch Palpy into the abyss, everyone stood up and cheered.

Remember the days when people used to stand and cheer in movies? I miss that.

No Country for Old Men.

What a nail biter in the intense cat and mouse interaction between Anton and Moss.

In Michael Mann's Heat, there is a homage to the way Buffalo Bill / Ted Levine dies in that basement.
