    Top 50!? I don't think I even own that many DVDs...

    The standard no particular order disclaimer applies:

    Back to the Future trilogy (on TV constantly, but they're just fun to watch)
    Batman
    Dead Poets Society
    Desperado
    High Fidelity
    Indiana Jones trilogy
    LA Confidential
    Lord of the Rings
    Memento
    Office Space
    The Princess Bride
    Requiem for a Dream
    Shaun of the Dead
    Signs (Sixth Sense is great too, but for some reason I enjoy Signs more)
    Stand By Me
    Star Wars classic trilogy
    T2
    Tombstone
    Young Frankenstein
    The Matrix

    Other favorites I don't own, but should:
    The Godfather 1 & 2
    Any Tim Burton film (except Planet of the Apes)
    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Gene Wilder version)
    The Boondock Saints
    Pulp Fiction
    Clue

    There were some obvious one's that I left out of my original list. I can't believe I forgot about them, and there's still alot more that I want to include, but for now I've narrowed it down to these.

    And I'm just wondering where the love for all the old films are. Me and Ruthful can't be the only ones who still enjoy watching them.

    Brice you've got some great movies in there. And someone else that's seen The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari!! Such a great film.
    Also I can't believe I forgot to add some David Lych to my list. I think I could just continually keep adding onto mine.

    I am not good at listing so I will just give my favorite movie series ever. Star Wars. The original 3 movies. The new ones are not even close to being as good.

    In addition to Star Wars, I also like the Lord of the Rings just as much. Maybe more.

    Check out my first post (revised) for the complete list.
    I think you've made a few mistakes in your list, hombre. Whats the worst arnie movie ever made doing in there?
    Don't try and argue with me. IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes both agree.

    Thats what I like about your style Dirty Sanchez - constantly reinforcing that massively dubious taste in film. Well done!
