This is a tough question, but what are your top five movies of all time(in no particular order)? It's a hard question if you watch and enjoy a lot of movies, but here goes mine.
The usual suspects-this movie is genious
Braveheart-my favorite epic film of all time
the adventures of baron munchausen-one of the best fantasy movies I've ever seen
the iron giant-this movie was so heartwarming
the shawshank redemption-amazing directing, acting, and story
Honorable mentions-anything that Tim burton directed, Rushmore, and the seven samurai

Why don't you ask for top 5 favorite principles in quantum mechanics, it would be as easy question...

Old thread, I know.....
Yes, I've seen Gattaca. Waste of time. Not good enough; Ethan Hawke not fit enough.
And WHAT is the deal with The Crow. My boyfriend went nuts about this film but I just couldn't see why, personally. Is it a 'guy film' or s'thing?
Anyway, 5 favorite
in no order: Prince of thieves
Life of Brian
Parenthood (Steve Martin)
The Fifth Element
Umm...there may be some i like better that i've forgotten tho. ANYWAY...
No. 1 HAS to be 'The Matrix'

If you want to know what the deal with The Crow is, read the graphic novel by James O'Barr. While you're reading it, keep in mind that O'Barr wrote/drew it because he was trying to make sense out of the senseless loss of his own fiancee. And keep a careful eye on how he draws Shelly by the end of the novel.
Add that to the amazing performance by the late Brandon Lee, accidentally killed while shooting the film, and you have a new definition of film noir. You may never like it, but you have to respect it.
It happens to be one of my favorites, as well. In keeping with the topic, four more of my favorites would have to be:
Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead (WHY is this not in DVD yet?!)
Six Degrees of Seperation
The Matrix (Keano notwithstanding.)
Can I add The Princess Bride as getting an honorable mention? http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif
