Destiny, the original silent version has to be in there someplace. Also Life Is Beautiful with the subtitles. I'll have to give some thought as to the rest.

I don't like top ten lists with movies, because there are so many different questions to answer: what is the BEST (quality) what do you LIKE (entertainment), what is funniest, what makes you cry, what inspires you, etc.

There are just so many different KINDS of movies that it's tough for me to compare them against each other.

Some movies that I absolutely love, and will watch every time they're on (I'm sure I'm forgetting some):

My Cousin Vinny
Rope
Remember the Titans
The Shawshank Redemption
The Godfather
The Godfather Part II
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Bull Durham
The Usual Suspects
Pulp Fiction
And what is good, Phaedrus, and what is not good? Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?
