Oh geez... this is probably the hardest for me to answer, since I'm a movie addict! I have some definite favorites, though probably hundreds more that could make the list. My favorite genres are cheesy comedy, "black comedy" (as in creepy/weird ), horror, and tear-jerker dramas. Here's my top 10:

1. Back to the Future (trilogy)
2. The Godfather (trilogy)
3. The Princess Bride
4. As Good as it Gets
5. Shawshank Redemption
6. The Shining
7. The Blues Brothers
8. Up in Smoke
9. Pulp Fiction
10. The Breakfast Club

Also, while it's too new for my all-time favorites list, I really loved "Little Miss Sunshine"... if anyone hasn't seen it yet, I HIGHLY suggest renting it asap. It's a terrific movie!! First one in quite a while that I've bought as soon as it was released on DVD.

  1. Crash
  2. City Lights
  3. The Godfather
  4. The Godfather (II)
  5. Modern Times
  6. La Strada
  7. American History X
  8. Training Day
  9. Mystic River
  10. Traffic

The Da Vinci Code ???. A fake. Just lies and lies. We must save the True History and give it to our sons and daughters. With films like The Da Vinci Code, History loses the truth and becomes business.
