My 5 favorites, in order:

1.) The Sting. Hands down, my favorite movie ever, and if you haven't seen it, go rent it. Now.
2.) Rudy. Best football movie ever. And consequently, it's the only movie men are allowed to cry while watching.
3.) American Graffiti. Classic actors, classic cars, classic setting. A great movie.
4.) A Beautiful Mind. Ron Howard is one of my favorite directors, and Russell Crowe played the part beautifully.
5.) A tie between Apollo 13 and October Sky. Both great movies, and both deal with one of my passions, air/spacecraft. Brilliant movies that everyone should see at least once.

Aren't you quoting some dumb sitcom on the being able to cry during Rudy? Or is this some well known fact that I'm missing?

Decent list though.

Certainly one of the more mature lists we've seen so far, bpso86.

And I don't think it was Rudy that could make every man cry, Rambo, I think its "Brian's Song". Another football movie and a true story also.

To be honest, I havn't seen it.
I havn't seen a lot of important, pivotal films, and I really hate that.
My NUMBER ONE priority this holidays is to watch DR STRANGELOVE.
And other classics.

As for spiderman 3.
People can add it to their favourite movies list if they want.
Opinions can never be wrong.
But it will just prove you completely fucking fail at life.

Yeah it did get somewhat boring eventually, but I think other things made up for it.
The poetic justice, the starting sequence, hell, the fact that I actually sat through a Nicholas Cage film is incredible.

I got the Redux from Vietnam itself. It's four hours I think.
Do you know how awkward it is for my sister to purchase Plattoon, Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now and others, FROM Vietnam itself?

I don't watch many movies but if I had to pick some of my favorites they'd be (in rough order):

Stand by Me
American History X
Forrest Gump
The Santa Clause
Any '60s Sean Connery Bond movie

It's close between AHX and Stand by Me so those two may change order soon. I just watched Stand by Me today while mass-producing darts, it's now moved up to first place.

When I pay $10 to see Spider-Man 3 at the midnight showing the last thing I want to see is Sam Raimi attempt serious social commentary and attack emo kids. What a waste of time and money, I guess Tobey McGuire is such a shitty actor that they had to dumb-it-down and make sure everyone was aware that he was different.

Seriously, the plotline of Spider-Man 3 is nothing more sophisticated than the weakest episode of Power Rangers. Funny because Raimi executive produced that garbage too!

But I digress. Does anyone here like Westerns? "Once Upon a Time in the West" is in my Top 5 all-time, I totally forgot.

The chances of one person taking a bomb on a plane are one in a million. The chances of two people taking a bomb on a plane are one in a trillion. So if you're scared of a terrorist attack, bring a bomb on a plane.

I'm very impressed by your list. Though it's not fair to say Seven Samurai = Magnificent 7 because Kirosawa did it first.

I don't claim to know what the best films ever are, but these are my 5 favorite.

5. Seven Samurai

4. Dr. Strangelove (I've changed this spot at least 8 time in the process of writing this)

3. Godfather

2. Episode V (the original, but I don't mind the FIRST revision with the CGI cloud city and such)

1. The Unforgiven (1992)

The top 2 are easy, the others are painful to decide on. Note, several movie sequels and one trilogy was left our because most sequels do not stand on their own enough to claim a top 5 spot.
