Ok I know there is an official list, but I was wondering what movies people like. We seem to have a fairly diverse population on h2g2. I am a fan of war movies, comedy and a few others for flavor. These are some of my picks, what are yours?
Run Silent, Run Deep
Das Boot
Heartbreak Ridge
Grose Point Blank
Radioland Murders
Animal House
Kelly's Heros
any Warren Miller film
Good Morning Vietnam

Both of you guys have listed some pretty damn fine movies. Being an avid 'movie buff' I had to check out what H2G2 had to say about movies, and so far haven't found much. Now, this may not be the best forum for this, but recently a buddy of mine handed me a movie and said 'you MUST WATCH this film' the tile of the movie 'Chopper' dint' really appeal to me and netiher - on first reading the reviews -did the subject matter - some australian criminal.

However, I stuck with with, and at the end of the movie was 'blown away'. If you liked Lock, stock and 2 smoking barrels, you'll love this film. It's slow to start, but stick with it and I can practically guarantee that the day after you've watched it, you will be glad that you did.

I was surprised to see "Silent Running" on someone's list.I love that film too. Others I like that would not be blockbusters

The Cider House Rules
McCabe and Mrs Miller (esp for Leonard Cohen's soundtrack-very apt)
Most of those directed by Clint Eastwood
Original Night of the Living Dead - esp the way it starts right into the story with the zombie in the graveyard.
Big hand for the Little Lady (Henry Fonda/Joanne Woodward)
The Man who Shot Liberty Valance
The Conversation (Gene Hackman)
