Yes, we've done this before, but I've never participated before...so here's my Top 5:

1. Back to the Future (#1 if I have to pick just one and the whole series if that counts) - because it's the only movie I ever sat through with a whole tub of popcorn and soda and didn't touch it once. (Ironically, I now work at the very theater I saw this wonderful show--and the SAME projectionist is there today. Unfortunately I believe the same equipment is still there as well :P).
2. Contact - because Carl Sagan is my favorite author.
3. Seven/The Sixth Sense (tie) - because the ending was just awesome.
4. Natural Born Killers - because I'm just sick.
5. Star Wars - Because Lucas is God, ILM is The Son, and THX is the Holy Ghost.

Soundtrack:

1. Maximum Overdrive (AC/DC Who Made Who)
2. Dazed & Confused
3. South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
4. Forest Gump
5. 2001

This is hard. I like so many movies. But if I had to choose five, I guess these would be the ones. And talk about diverse. In alphabetical, and not ranking order, they are:

1.Aliens
2.Ben-Hur
3.Contact
4.The Great Escape
5.Jaws

As for the top five in soundtracks, I'd have to say:

1.Braveheart
2.Conan the Barbarian
3.First Blood
4.Raiders of the Lost Ark
5.Young Sherlock Holmes

I thought the dullest movie ever was that sci-fi movie Hardware (1990) with Dylan McDermott. Anybody remember that piece of shit?

Where do you start with something like this? I'm with Gracia, there are so many, and depending on your mood, you'll have five different ones at different times. Also, looking at the previous entries has made me remember other films that I like just as much, but didn't necessarily have in mind.

I'm also a big B-Western fan, they're a part of my life. I have just as many films in that category that I feel just as strongly about. As far as I'm concerned, they merit their own list, but since no one else on the forum would likely know the titles, I'll spare everyone. So, with those qualifications:

1) Cinema Paradiso (I WAS this kid, it's astonishing)
2) Singing in the Rain
3) The Flim-Flam Man
4) Sling Blade
5) Ed Wood

I remember once I was in Fort Worth TX and looked out my hotel window to see this very familiar looking fountain.

Later that night (as I was drinking a long cool glass of ahced tay ) I remembered where I had seen it before...it was the fountain they used in 'Logan's Run'.

Once more...the illusion was ruined.

I looked at the fountain again when I got back to the hotel but I couldn't see Jenny Agutter anywhere.
