Why is it that I think "The Fugitive" is one of the top 5 movies of all time? I can watch it a hundred times and never get tired of it. (Just did, BTW, and that's what brought this up.)

While we're on the subject, let me add:

1) Saving Private Ryan
2) Braveheart

I'd have lots more, but I'm homebrewed at the moment.

The movie I always find myself watching is "The Shawshank Redemtion". I think it's Morgan Freeman's narration that draws me in.

To give some insight to my state of mind, Pulp Fiction is my favorite movie of all time. 12 Monkeys is great as well. I also like the epics like Braveheart and Gladiator.

Otherwise:

True Romance
2 Days in the Valley
The Usual Suspects
El Mariachi/Desperado/Once Upon a Time in Mexico

I might have a bit of a violence fetish....

Deliverance.
Alien.
The kind of movies where if you stumble on them while channel-surfing, you wind up watching them. Doesn't matter where at in the movie.

Animal House, hands down! Followed by Goodfellas, Casino, Strange Brew, and Road to Perdition.

It is also great to have one Douglas C. Neidermeyer (Mark Metcalf) in the area. He and his wife run a restaraunt north of Milwaukee and he make weekly visits to the Bob and Brian radio show.

The Usual Suspects
Memento
City of Lost Children
Eraserhead
A Tale of Two Sisters

Kind of a frightening list, now that I look at it. But I wouldn't change any of them.

'Josey Wales', there's a good one I'd forgotten about. A bit long, and sometimes slow, but the imagery and the overall vibe make it a classic in its own right. That movie really takes one back to the period, rather than simply imitating it the way that the majority of "action westerns" typically do. I think 'Cold Mountain' (also a good movie) had heavy influence from 'Josey Wales'.

Also:
A Clockwork Orange
Fight Club
A Boy and His Dog
Blue Velvet
[Every Terry Gilliam movie]
[Every Kubrick]
[Every Monty Python]

IN addition to most mentioned above, here are some others I will always watch a rerun of...

"Star Wars"

"Jackie Brown" (Louis... Louis... Where is the car Louis?)

"Rob Roy" (Braveheart is good, but I like Rob Roy better)

"The Princess Bride" ("Rodents of unusual size? I don't think they exist.")

"Das Boat"

"12 O'clock High"

"Sergent York"

All time favorite John Wayne:

"The Man Who Shot Liberty Vallance"

Spencer Tracy

"Bad Day at Black Rock"


All the Steve Martin movies for humour
Special mention "Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels"

I just remembered another of my favorites: "Donnie Darko".

And, of course, "Airplane".

I've been introducing my kids to the classics recently, so I've re-watched several Charlie Chaplin and Marx Brothers movies. Some are less funny than I remember, but some are just amazing pieces of work.

If you're going old school:

Casablanca

Maltese Falcon

Key Largo

I know, they're all Bogey flicks, but they ARE great movies.

I am with Mark, I don't think that Bogie was capable of making a bad movie, but I am willing to be corrected.

Perhaps it's not quite a classic, but I don't see "Repo Man" in the list yet. Talk about hot alien chicks.
