There are a few dozen more I like as much as to what I've listed, but for now these ten will do!
Well to tell you the truth, in all the excitement, I've kind of lost track myself.

Geronimo - an interesting choice, no doubt I saw that decades ago when I wore my cowboy outfits but have no memory of it now!

About a Boy
Star Wars: A New Hope
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Field of Dreams
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Casablanca
Star Trek: First Contact

Honorable Mentions: Tombstone, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Shawshank Redemption. Oh, and Elf
Agree Usually the BEST movies I've ever seen I would not watch over and over and still enjoy them.

but the ones you can watch over & over & still enjoy. And for me this is a very, very short list by this definition.

A Murder of Crows
Catch Me If You Can
Fried Green Tomatoes
Grand Canyon
Michael Clayton
New in Town
The Green Mile
The Count of Monte Cristo
The Hangover
The War

Love topics like this one. I'm much more of a music person than movies. And other than a few kids movies I have taken my daughter to see, I've gone to no movies in the theatre the past 5+ years. But that being said, this is a top 10 list and so here goes:


1. Wall Street (1987)
2. Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981)
3. Die Hard (1988)
4. Die Hard With A Vengeance (1995)
5. Patton (1970)
6. Stalag 17 (way back in 1953 - great film)
7. Planes Trains & Automobiles (1987)
8. Valkyrie (2008)
9. Breakdown (1997)
10. Ransom (1996)

I like your taste. I especially love Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, as well as Breakdown. Didn't expect to see Breakdown on a top 10 list, but I have to agree- very underrated movie- I don't know why it isn't more well-renowned with Kurt Russell and JT Walsh both starring in it. Simple flick, but very effective.
