your favorite movies

Although it's not exactly the most lofty goal, one thing I aspire to in 2007 is to watch more movies. Old, new, whatever genre, I don't care. So let's have 'em -- a simple list of any length, ranked or unranked, with no explanation or justification required (but provide one if you want).

My uncle recently found a magazine's listing of the top 100 movies of all time and placed any of those movies he hasn't seen yet on his wishlist. I recently rediscovered the joy of reading (The Da Vinci Code) and am now refusing to watch any movie that's based on a book I haven't read yet.

from childhood until now:

King Kong (Jessica Lange and Jeff Bridges version - yeah, that one)
Airplane
Fox and the Hound
Francis
Tootsie
At Close Range (I'm going in order of time, but if ranking, this would be #1 - Sean Pean, the late Chris Pean and Chistopher Walkens are all superb)
Sixteen Candles/Pretty in Pink/Breakfast Club
Less Than Zero
Spinal Tap
Monty Python - Life with Brian/Search for the Holy Grail
The Princess Bride
Raising Arizona
The English Patient
Red/White/Blue (with Red being my favorite)
Gross Pointe Blank
Waiting for Guffman/Best in Show
Into the Void

Okay...there are more, but these are some that come to mind. My favorite horror film still is Halloween (the first film only). If I hear that music, I still get goose bumps.

Gaslight (B&W with Ingrid Bergman)

Yeah...it was on A&E or something like that, right? It had some cool scenes like the one where Fabrizio (the guy who blew up the car with Apollonia in it -- what a good looking woman she was) gets blown up.
