    In no particular order:

    -Shawshank Redemption
    -Primer
    -Waking Life
    -Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift (It's so corny & trite, but goddamnit I love it)
    -A toss up between "There Will Be Blood", "Magnolia", and "Punch Drunk Love".

    Paul Thomas Anderson is my fav director, so I find it hard to choose which film of his to put on the list. I love all of his films, except Inherent Vice. I only put one because I don't want my entire list to be PTA films.

  • Hmmm, off the top of my head (so I may forget something) and in no particular order:

    Seven
    the Royal Tanenbaums
    L.A. Story
    Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
    Everyone Says I Love You (maybe there are better movies, but kind of like Groundhog Day this flick just makes me feel good)

    I feel like 4 and 5 could be replaced with movies that I like better, and it's tough to leave off Groundhog Day, Die Hard, and Annie Hall, but I'll run with it.

    Man, that's a tough one. Ask me tomorrow and I'm almost sure it's different.

    In no particular order:

    The Shawshank Redemption
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    No Country For Old Men
    Saving Private Ryan
    Pulp Fiction

    ...

    The Shining
    Ex Machina
    ...I could keep going.

    Honorable mention: Space Jam. Terrible movie, but my cousins and I watched that movie multiple times a day.

  • 1) Mulholland Drive
    2) Festen (The Celebration)
    3) Pulp Fiction
    4) Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.
    5) Chef

    Festen. If you can deal with subtitles (the movie is in Danish) and with the heavy themes of the movie (incest, racism, loneliness, alcoholism), I recommend this one. It's deeply tragic and uncomfortably funny at the same time. But don't read spoilers beforehand.

    I really need to rewatch The Godfather. Shame on me. Haven't watched it since I was a kid, so it's probably a new movie to me now with all that I missed with my dumb teenage brain.

    I've actually never seen it. Part of me doesn't want to because of all of the build up. I guess I still really liked Citizen Kane a whole lot despite the tidal wave of "greatest movie of all time" hype, but I almost feel like I'd go into The Godfather with even higher expectations. I'm sure I'll get to it someday.
  • @Travis I actually just watched The Godfather for the first time a couple years ago after 33 years of buildup and I thought it lived up to the hype. I wasn't even into the genre at the time either and loved it, so, I'm pretty confident you won't be disappointed.

    Thankfully I saw Citizen Kane for the first time in college, so my professor helped guide my eye on what to look for. For its time it's a beautifully filmed movie.
