    1. LOTR (all 3 count?)
    2. Gladiator
    3. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    HM: Apocalypse Now, Harry Potter, Chris Nolan movies (Prestige, Memento, BB, TDK, Inception), Snatch, Superhero Movies (Thor, Captain America, Watchmen, KickAss), Count of Monte Cristo, Kingdom of Heaven.

    I'm not picky really. Way too many to mention. I tried to hit ones that no one else has mentioned yet.

    They are all very good movies.

    I think my HM would be:

    Gladiator, LOTR, Inception, The Hangover, Unthinkable, The Green Mile, The Shining, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, Fight Club, City Of God, The Matrix (probably only the first and maybe second one), Seven, and Gran Torino.

    I don't know how I forgot such classics as The Godfather, Goodfellas, Casino, and Donnie Brasco, a very very underrated Al Pacino film.

    I also very much agree on Gran Torino.

    Liked Saints at first, now I really don't think it's very good at all.

    Don't think I can pick three. But a bunch of my favorites are: Blues Brothers, Caddyshack, Christmas Vacation, Big Lebowski, Forrest Gump, Dark Knight, Watchmen, Indiana Jones 1 and 3, Braveheart.

    for years I've tried and tried to narrow it down but I can't. Here's the lowest I can get to an order. And I can't put them in any sort of order. You'll notice a certain outlier, but I really really love that one:

    Driving Miss Daisy
    Shawshank
    Schindler's List
    Tommy Boy
    Rain Man
    Gone Baby Gone
    Citizen Kane

    Lonesome Dove - all 3 phases, the original is the original. the other 2 are solid - Classic!
    Tombstone - Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer ed. - Val Kilmer's best part
    Hoosiers - favorite of my grandaddy

    Recent movie that is moving up. Taken - As a father of 2 girls, that one takes on a different meaning.

    KB is a very demanding and very specific OP, but I'll follow the rules nonetheless. Ask me tomorrow and you'll get three different answers.

    1. Hoosiers--my dad's favorite movie, my favorite movie.
    2. Slingblade--Doyle Hargraves is the GOAT movie character imo. Everything Yoakam touches is gold.
    3. What About Bob?--Bill Murray, my favorite comedian, doing some of his finest work.
