ok, so i can never narrow it down to one. but i think i can manage a top five. ok this is the deal, imagine you can only have five movies to watch for the rest of your life, what would they be?

here are mine.

Caddyshack
Back to the Future
The Wizard of Oz
The Shawshank Redemption
The Princess Bride


there are hundreds of others i love.....but these five i could see a million times and never grow sick of them..............

I was going to write an explanation when I was listing them down, but to me 1 of those is incomplete without the other parts. While i was thinking about it,I realized most of what i really liked happen to be series. For what it's worth the Godfather Trilogy is a chronological version of all 3 movies made into one 7-8 hour movie. This version is not out in dvd release yet.

It is because it is a true story and it happened in the DC/Balt Area. TC Williams is in Northern Va. To those not familiar with my place. You can also add to that We are Marshall.

In some forum in the distant past, I included Braveheart. I guess with my movie collection, it is hard to make the cut...... 5 movies out of hundreds or thousands.. :)

I am surprised that Coach Carter didn't make at least your honorable mention.

I definitely could add all of those you have there to my honorable mention list....along with Tombstone (which probably should be Top 5) ,Shawshank Redemption, Dead Poets Society, V for Vendetta (glad someone else saw it), Gladiator.

I think honestly I just like movies too much to narrow it down to 5.
