I just thought I'd start a thread where people could write a list of their favorite films, just to see what movies we have in common, and what ones we don't.

Mine:
Shawshank Redemption.
The Usual Suspects.
Braveheart.
American History X.
The Iron Giant.
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.
Time Bandits.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden dragon.
Oh Brother where art thou.
Shadow of a Vampire.
Goodfellas.
The Godfather (1 and 2).
A shallow grave.
Rushmore.
City of lost children.
Sleepy Hollow.
Edward Scissorhands.
American Beauty.
Planet of the apes (original).
Get shorty.
Apocalypse now.

I'll add to the list later. I'm hungry. Please, feel free to right up your own list. I'm curious to see what movies you all enjoy.
