These are three films I have watched time and time again over the years. Another big fan of Guy Ritchie movies. UK film making at its best.

The Usual Suspects

During my teens, 'The Usual Suspects' was my favourite movie hands-down. (Keyser Söze!) It all seems rather trivial now :devil2: .

Thanks for all of the replies. Now I am more familiar with the forum members' movie tastes.

I can't narrow it down to three (some of my fav's have already been mentioned Godfather I& II, Casablanca, Apocalypse Now, Good,Bad and Ugly,Wild Bunch,Wizard of Oz, The Searchers, SavingPrivate Ryan, Lord of The Rings Trilogy) funny that Gone with the Wind is not yet mentioned.

Here are three more I always go back to that haven't been mentioned..

The Seven Samurai (Kurosawa at his best)

North By Northwest (Hitchcock at his best)

Close Encounters of the Third Kind (Speilberg at the top of his game)

OK, then 3 more...

Throne of Blood- Kurasawa does MacBeth

Vertigo from Hitchcock

Dead Man- bizzaro western with fantastic Neil Young soundtrack

GoodFellas, if it hasn't been mentioned.

Shindlers List, I gotta tell you, as good as Private Ryan is, this is better.

I have about a hundred that are great that have already been mentioned.

After the Sunset.........with Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek, and Woody Harrelson.

Love the setting, Bahamas, great plot, and Salma Hayek in that is unbelievable.....mouth wide open in awe while watching her the whole time.

Gotta say my number one top film of all time will always be Coolhand Luke. I've watched it maybe a hundred times easily.

Other than that, I'd have to say The Godfather and maybe Princess Bride (PB is in my top 5, just not sure if it's in my top 3). The gap between number 1 (coolhand luke) and number 2 (the Godfather) is huge for me though. Nothing tops a young paul newman cutting the heads off parking meters.

Ah yes, a very quotable film:

'You're not a dog are you Gary? . . . And yet you have all the characteristics of a dog Gary . . . All except loyalty.'

'Tyrone, when you go in reverse, things come from behind.' :clap:
