I enjoyed the Favorite Book thread and took away many ideas for my reading list. Thought maybe a movie thread would be fun since I don't recall seeing one lately. Here's a list of my favorites in no particular order. I know I'll think of lots more later but these are what immediately come to mind:

* All Jackie Chan/Jet Li chop socky
* The Transporter(like Bond, a total male fantasy existence)
* Caddyshack(first R-rated movie I ever saw. Ah memories)
* Office Space(whaaats happening?)
* Films by Wes Anderson: Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, Royal Tennenbaums, The Life Aquatic(small, off-kilter comedies that I think get better with repeat viewings)
* Bubba Ho-tep(weird comedy/horror starring The Bruce Campbell. Elvis and JFK vs. The Mummy, gotta love that)
* Escape From New York(seems really bad now and the sequal even worse but Snake Plissken is a classic anti-hero)
*Fight Club(I would explain why but I'd be breaking the 'first rule')
* All those comedies starring some combination of the Wilson brothers, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Will Ferrrel.

Raising Arizona is a classic.

And on a completely different note/genre:

Another, less popular movie that's great is Poolhall Junkies.

My sister and I can have entire conversations using only lines from Raising Arizona, Princess Bride, and Office Space (3 of our favorites). It drives our mother absolutely crazy.

Peter, I love the Matrix, but refuse to acknowledge that 2 and 3 were ever made. The original stands alone in my book.

*Pulp Fiction
*Old School
*True Romance
*Star Wars(my 8 and 6 year old boys have totally revived my love for this story, they're fanatics)
*Crouching Tiger (wonderful fable)
*Anything with Jackie Chan
*Absolutely Caddyshack!(I don't do MMA on the side, I golf)

There are probably more, but I don't want to ramble.

All the good war movies
All the good comedies (exception: None of the romantic comedies except when used as a device to get back into my wife's good graces)
None of the thillers
All of the good film noir movies
All the movies watched while drinking booze on a plane (I spewed my vodka tonic during '40 yr old virgin')

"Raising Arizona"! As a movie afficianado, how could I forget the Coen Bros. who also made probably my #1 pick "The Big Lebowski".
