    For comedy, its a tossup between "Blazing Saddles" and "National Lampoons Animal House".

    While most likely not the best movie ever made, I have always enjoyed "The Abyss". It's one that I will stop and watch if I see that it's currently on. Seems like I have several like that.

    It really is hard to pick just one. If I was told that I could only see one more movie before I died, I'd pick one that I'd never seen before.....

    Anyway, one that I'll always watch when it comes on, or pick if it's among a choice of many, is "Failsafe". Great drama, fantastic acting, and a damn good story........

    Dead heat between Blazing Saddles and Airplane for comedies.

    Non comedy goes to Godfather.

    Whoever said that it was hard for many folks to stick to one is a genius. Must be running 10:1.

    or 1941 (Ned Beatty with the ack-ack gun in his living room)


    Isn't that widely panned as one of the worst films of all time worldwide?

    The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, but if I have to pick one of them, I like Return of the King best.

    Two top contenders for my answer!

    On a related note, the Top 250 at IMDB is interesting. http://www.imdb.com/chart/top There are also several genre-specific lists there.

    Hands down, the Original Crow probably. Gosh, i've seen so many movies, but it's one of the few I can watch over and over. It had some great one liners.

    "Mother is the word for God upon the hearts and lips of all children."

    "Move and your dead!" .. "I say I am dead and moving! (dancing around)"

    "Tell them death is coming for them.. tell them Eric Draven sends his regards".
    --
    Bah, so sad he died, as I think that would have been Brandon Lee's breakout movie :(

    Ohh, great choice of The Outsiders. That sucker was a who's who of future hollywood stars. Ralph Machio, Tom Cruise, Emileo Estevez, Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillan. :grin:
