The point of this list is your favorite films, not the ones you think are "The Best" or good filmmaking necessarily, but the ones you can watch over & over & still enjoy.

Limit to 10 choices please & in no particular order. (This will vary not only to taste but to our age as well.)

2001
Network
Casablanca
Fargo
Annie Hall
The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
Some Like it Hot
Vertigo
8 1/2
Jules & Jim

And I will throw in a joker to this deck: "The Big Lebowski" which has grown on me with repeated viewings.

One of the funniest movies ever made:

Bunny Lebowski: I'll suck your c*** for a thousand dollars.
Brandt: Ah hahahahaha! Wonderful woman. We're all, we're all very fond of her. Very free-spirited.
Bunny Lebowski: Brandt can't watch, though, or he has to pay a hundred.
Brandt: Ah haha. That's marvelous.
The Dude: Uh, I'm just gonna go find a cash machine.

Hatari is a good film...The Notebook is what some call a chick-flick, just a warning...but I liked it.
