Top 3 (No of times watched, not necessarily favouritism):
Matrix (~60)
Fight Club (~40)
The Boondock Saints (~20)

Also favs:
Monty Pythons' (all), Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Braveheart, Bourne series, Léon the Professional, Lord of the Rings, Jackie Chan's, ... and some more.

Also, Donnie Darko. I just love how everyone eventually is better off with him dead.

I really love Asian cinema, The Ring, The Grudge, etc. I'm a huge Monty Python fan and I'm also a sap so I love RomComs.

My all-time favorite movie is probably Die Hard. Other than that, my favorite kinds of movies are really really cheesey scifi-horror flicks that they show late Saturday nights on the scifi channel (Mansquito, Octopus 2: River of Fear, that kind of deal). Cheesey disaster movies are also a favorite. I do like the occasional movie that actually makes me think, but it's hard for me to take them seriously for some reason, so this doesn't happen much.

<b>Miyazaki films</b>, though probably not Pom Poko, that one was just kind of weird. Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Nausicaa all rank up there pretty close to one another, though.
<b>Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon</b> and <b>Hero</b> are both fantastic.
<b>Ronin</b>. I could watch this movie over and over again.
<b>The Dish</b>. The only movie that has made my husband try to extract a promise from me that I won't endanger my life for science. (my response: but what if it's really important??)
<b>What Dreams May Come</b>.

Campy movies, irreverent movies, spoofs. Action flicks.
Global warming is intricately tied to the decline in the pirate population. As the pirate population goes down, the average global temperature goes up. Ergo, pirates are cool, and we need more pirates. :pirate: ARRR!

The Princess Bride (I know it by heart), The Fountain. RENT (OMIGOD I LOVE RENT), Star Wars anything, Pocahontas, Annie (1997 version), Phantom of the Opera, My Sister's Keeper (minus the ending, mainly because I READ THE BOOK), Hairspray (though to see it on stage is WAAAAAAY better), Princess Mononoke, Marie Antoinette, To Kill a Mockingbird (Fun fact: Gregory Peck is a distant cousin of mine), Fight Club, Charade.

There's one movie Audrey Hepburn is in called The Children's Hour that I love, but haven't seen in it's entirety. I can't seem to forget it, though. It's about these two teachers who run a boarding school, and one of the girls tells her grandmother they are having a lesbian affair as revenge for being punished earlier in the film. Immediately, word spreads and parents start withdrawing their children from the school, and the aftermath of what happens. It was just incredible in a terrible kind of way.

My number one of all time is 'The Crow' - the first one with Brandon Lee R.I.P. They needed to stop after this one.
Other favorites: '300', 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World', all of the 'Matrixes', 'Sherlock Holmes 1 & 2', 'Grease', 'Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure', 'The Avengers', 'Fast & Furious 1, 4,5 & 6', 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' (the original 1970's movie)
