Alright, spill the beans on your favorite movies.

I was just looking at a PHP forum so I can learn about these forums better.  And I saw some guy had an avatar from the move "Office Space".  That movie is an insta-classic.  I loved it and I can watch it over and over again.  

Here are some of my favorite:
Matrix 1 and 2 (I hated 3)
Office Space
Braveheart
8mm
Tombstone
Blade 1, 2, 3
Shawshank Redemption ://

I saw Constantine movie in the theatres recently.  Prettygood movie.  I need to see it again to know if it goes on the all-time great list.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I love comedies...Animal House, Blazing Saddles, Caddieshack, Major League, Bull Durham, Young Frankenstein, Fletch, A Fish Called Wanda, to name a few.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

I'm not sure if these are my favorite movies but if I started collecting DVD's these would be the first I'd buy... I think...

Ghost World
Hot, Wet, American Summer
Office Space
The Incredibles
The Big Lebowski
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Dumb and Dumber
Clueless
Dazed and Confused
Billy Madison
Meet the Parents
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

I'd buy them because my attention span has been lousy lately, and comedies I can just throw on anytime and not care if I'm paying attention.  

The following are movies I just plain feel are excellent:

The Unforgiven
The Shawshank Redemption
Braveheart
Breaking Away
When Harry Met Sally
Schindler's List
The Matrix
Unbreakable
Eyes Wide Shut
Goodfellas
The Godfather 1 and 2
Hoosiers
Ocean's 11
Love Actually
Manhattan... Annie Hall... Bullets Over Broadway... Purple Rose of Cairo...

And a lot more I'm forgetting.
