I'd have to go with The Matrix. Have you ever been to the movies and been so completely moved by a film that you spend days, and days, and days afterwards thinking about it? Yeah. That's The Matrix for me. And the funny thing is, I haven't seen it in years. I love the entire trilogy (yes, all of it), but The Matrix changed everything in movies for me. Without a doubt, top of my"greatest movie ever made" list.

I also love the Bourne trilogy. Passionately.

Having to choose my all time favorite movie is like having someone ask me,"Which of your children do you love the most?" I can't answer that. I love them equally. I love different things about them as well because my boys are very different. The same can be said for movies.

I love Star Wars because it defines a big part of my childhood. It is, in my opinion, a timeless film.

I love The Right Stuff, The Big Chill, E.T., The Black Stallion, and Chariots of Fire because these were movies that were introduced to me very early in my life by my parents. Yes, The Big Chill when I was just seven years old
I remember being in the theater for The Right Stuff. Halfway through, the movie stopped. I thought it broke. Many people left. It was intermission. Remember that? When it came back on I was mesmerized. Again, at this time, I was just seven years old. It remains to be one of my favorites.

Just jaw dropping. It makes you stay glued to whatever the fuck's happening. Every episode has something valuable to learn from."LOL what'd anyone learn from a TV show dude?" squeaked a guy. Inside I was laughing at how ignorant he was.
Each episode has a puzzle and a Sherlock rises from within, even for the audience sometimes, especially medical students I guess, to solve that puzzle.

The Goonies is a film that I've likely watched the most, literally well over a hundred times. That was my childhood. My friends and I would go into my dark basement of my childhood home and make neverending sequels. I was always Mikey.
I can list others like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Aliens, Jaws, The Thing, The Terminator, etc. I can then look at films from my adult life and choose Good Will Hunting, Memento, Magnolia, 40 Year Old Virgin, Jerry Maguire, etc.
It's an impossible question to answer. They are all"my babies". They all touch me in different ways. I'm drawn to them because of their genres, because of where I was in life when they debuted, and because of what mode I'm in at any given time.

When one likes movies, and has seen as many as I have, it is almost impossible to select an all-time favorite. One might get away with an all-time dozen (but then I'd think of a thirteenth) or an all-time hundred (admitting up front that as soon as the list was done I'd think of a hundred and first that should be on the list.
Here's what I've done. I've gone through all the titles I rated five stars (Loved it!) on Netflix and selected the ones that I always stop to look at, and probably stay to watch, when they show up on the big screen TV. The result was 38 films. I added two of my favorte made-for-TV films to round up the total to 40. Then I sorted them by comparing each film with all the others, two at a time, and asking myself, if I had to choose between these two films to watch, which would I choose. Frankly, the results often surprised me. The film that came out on top, the one I decided I would watch instead of any of the others was

It is a tie between two films.
One of them is Paul Thomas Anderson's; There will be Blood
I watched this movie only recently. I had watched PT Anderson's other movies before. And I knew Daniel Day-Lewis had won an Oscar for his portrayal of Daniel Plainview. So my expectations were quite high when I watched this movie. But the movie exceeded my expectations. Daniel Day-Lewis's performance is the best performance by any actor in any movie I have seen till date. Be it the gusher eruption sequence, or the 'I have abandoned my child' scene, or 'I drink your milkshake' sequence, the movie is filled with amazing performances and some great score with of course the inventiveness and brilliance of PTA's shot designs, this movie takes film-making to an altogether different level.
The other film is David Fincher's; the social network
This is one movie that I can watch any number of times I want and still not be bored even a little bit. While the first dialogue in There Will be blood comes fifteen minutes into the movie, this one has a nine page sequence in the first four-and-a-half minutes. It is extremely entertaining right from the word go.

If you watch movies from a lot of different periods, countries and genres it's hard to reduce that to ten titles. It would be easier for me to pick a top 3 or a top 30. I start with three certainties, expand that to seven certainties, and then I'm left with twenty-three candidates for the next three places. All I can do is turn my heart into stone and regret my choices afterwards. Here they are in chronological order:
Modern Times (1936)
Gone with the Wind (1939)
Det sjunde inseglet (1957)
Vertigo (1958)
The Godfather (1972)
Black Swan (2010)

For something to be your favorite movie, there has to be something about it that speaks to you beyond just the objective quality of it. Fight Club is not only a great movie, but it was to me, THE movie of it's era in the sense that it spoke for the era. And since I was in a formative stage myself, it spoke to me in a way I doubt another movie ever will.

Ensemble Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Lewitt, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Michael Caine, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy and Dileep Rao. Each one of them is well-known for at least one other movie, and the likes of Caine and DiCaprio have several blockbusters under their belt. The cast is proof enough of how awesome this movie is, and , as you would expect, each actor plays his/her role to perfection.

Dev.D (2009)
Bollywood's masterpiece, or rather Anurag Kashyap's, this movie, with its stunning cinematography and lighting techniques is a must watch under the influence of psychedelics, or not.

Dead Poets Society (1989)
Touching tale about an English teacher who instills in his students the importance of seizing the day (carpe diem!).

As I've stated on a few similar questions, my favourite (with Blade Runner coming in second) is Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977).
Steven Spielberg wrote the script and directed. Vilmos Zsigmond did the photography, and John Williams wrote the music - same year as the music he did for Star Wars: a New Hope too!!

The first time in the history of film-making, that a director was given the opportunity to re-work the film, to be released again in the theatres (the Special Edition, in 1980). It's pretty common nowadays, especially with DVD and Blu-Ray"Director's Cut" editions.

Movie: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Deep down, it's a story about love, and learning self respect. But, y'know, aside from the deeper meaning, it makes me laugh every time. It's so laced with references and jokes, that I feel like I catch something new with every watch. Stylistically, it's incredible, and captured the feel of the comic books perfectly. It's a movie that I could turn on at any time and not be tired of.

Mad Men This is one of the few TV shows that I feel like I can call art. Every setting and shot is so beautifully rendered. The world of the 60's is so different from where we are now, so turbulent, and so interesting. At the center of a volatile, ever changing world, Don Draper must battle his inner demons that have followed him from childhood into adulthood and find inner peace. That's a thing I can get into. And even when the show shifts its focus from Don to characters like Peggy, Roger, or Joan, it still remains enjoyable; sometimes even more so. I also love that the show can be surprisingly humorous, even in the most dour of situations.
