Top 5 Fave Movies of All Time?
I was just curious as to everyone's favorite movies. I like hearing these lists from other people because I often find movies that I have not seen that I need to check out. I always have a hard time with this, since I like lots of movies for many different reasons, so here are 5 of my favorites(in no particular order):
Running on Empty
IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096018/
The performances of Judd Hirsch, Christine Lahti and River Phoenix are like watching a master class of acting. Even after seeing this film numerous times, he always affects me the same.

The best teen/ young adult romance of it's generation in my opinion. I have been searching for my Lloyd Dobbler ever since...no wonder I am still single. LOL
E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083866/
While I find many of Spielberg's work overly sentimental, it works here. This is one of the first films I remember watching as a kid, so it holds a soft spot for me.

Hilarious. Frances McDormand is a genius actor, along with many of her costars here.
Good Will Hunting
IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119217/
I remember being so blown away by this movie the first time I saw it. I think that it was so well put together in terms of plot, soundtrack, pacing, cast and cinematography. I think this is some of Matt Damon and Robin William's best work to date.
So, what are some of your favorite films?
