I'll give it to
Predator 1/2(I liked them anyway)
Equilibrium was cool, if only for the gun katas
Maybe its just because I saw it last night but "Secret Window" was a very good movie, and not at all a waste of time/money/energy.
princess bride - oleanna - lotr - blade runner - mad max - the pianist - braveheart - citizen kane - wizard of oz - training day - young frankenstein - blazing saddles - bill and teds - army of darkness

"best movies ever"
kinda stupid topic name eh?, maybe it should be FAVORITE movie ever.
Predator 1&2 (just because i love the creature)
i have more favs, just cant remember them
Princess Mononoke (all time favorite)
Pump up the Volume
Fist of Legend (non-sped up version)
any of John Woo's Hong Kong movies (can't really stand his American stuff)
These are my favourites...
My list.....by genre:
Action/Drama/War: Saving Private Ryan
Fantasy/Adventure/Action: LoTR Trilogy
Comedy/Family/Animation: Lilo & Stitch
Action/Comedy/Crime: Starsky & Hutch
Documentary: Step Into Liquid
Action/Fantasy/Sci-Fi: Spiderman 2
Action/Comedy/Horror/Romance: Shaun of the Dead
Drama/Thriller/Mystery: Fight Club
Drama/Romance/Sci-Fi/Thriller: Vanilla Sky
Adventure/Drama/War: Bridge on the River Kwai
Not that this is the perfect list....I just used the categories and the imdb top rated movies by genre thing to help filter them down. I probably wouldn't use the same categories if I were just to do it from the top of my head....this is just an effective way to filter out my list of kagillions of favourite movies.
Encouragement keeps me swimming , even in the undertow of disappointment.
Emporer's New Groove
every kurosawa film
Young Frankenstien.... it's fronkenshteen
...this could just go on forever...
Best "guy movies" I can think off the top of my head. Felt like sticking to a theme.
The good, the bad, and the ugly
Full Metal Jacket
Lock, stock, and 2 smoking barrels
Saving Pvt. Ryan
etc. etc... I could go on for a long time. I even have all those, yay.
yeah, it's gotta be Bladerunner by a mile. I can't see that movie ever being bettered.
Some of my all-time favorites:
-Apocalypse Now (Redux too)
-The Godfather I and II
-Taxi Driver (I love Scorsese if you didn't realize it)
-The Deer Hunter
if I had to chose some recent ones:
-Requiem for a dream
Die Hard (Action)
Princess Mononoke (Anime ((Adventure/Action))
Grave of the Fireflies (Anime ((Drama/War))
Oceans 11 (Hmm...Thriller)
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (Martial Arts)
Lord of The Rings (Sci-Fi/Adventure)
Original Star Wars Trilogy (Sci-Fi)
Momento is my current favorite movie.

I don't spellcheck...
I mostly agree with Sinix' list, but don't forget:
North by Northwest
Absolutely one of the best movies ever made.
I hope that Silently Roaring was talking about the Frank Sinatra Danny Ocean, and not the George Clooney one.
Also, nobody mentioned Enter the Dragon. Given the popularity of kung-fu here, this one is a must-see.
Last addition: for those really into special effects, Jacob's Ladder and What Dreams May Come.
Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Last Starfighter, The Goonies, Seven, Fight Club, The Game (EXCELLENT MOVIE!!) LOTR, Matrix, Friday, Next Friday, Friday After Next, Sleepy Hollow, Pirates of the Carribbean oh the list can go oonnn and oonnn. I have a wish list of dvd purchases that would prolly go over 1700.00 lol
Less talk, more screams
anything written by Charlie Kaufman
Lets not forget Aliens and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Two flawless movies, often imitated, never bettered.
