Uh...honorable mention Girly (1970) ...originally released as Nanny, Mumsy, Sonny, and Girly in the UK. I just remembered, it's really hard to pick ten.

(not necessarily in order of most to least favorite):

The Sixth Sense
Wizard Of Oz
The 5000 Fingers of Dr T
The Martian
The Day The Earth Stood Still (original one- although Keanu Reeves' remake is quite good too!)
The Sound Of Music
Little Shop Of Horrors (the musical remake- NOT the original)
E.T.
Short Circuit
The Court Jester

I think "Arrival" will make my list when I see it

Although I love sci-fi, none of the Star Wars or Star Trek movies appealed me that much. The Star Wars series is a bit too violent for my taste. And I thought the first Star Trek movie was so bad, I didn't see another one in the theater until Insurrection (which was 7 movies later, I think...)

Peasant (1963-1972) and Fluffy (1970s?-1982- I think of you as 'Ambrose' now)- Your spirits outshone some humans I have known. Be happy forever.

In no particular order

Alien
Aliens
True Romance
Despicable Me
Leon: The Professional
The Fifth Element
The Princess Bride
The Counterfeiters (German)
What We Do in the Shadows (NZ)
Bram Stoker's Dracula (except for Keanu Reeves)

Could add quite a few more......

ARGH- I knew I had forgotten one I liked. I think "The Matrix" tops "Court Jester", "5000 Fingers" and "Day The Earth Stood Still".

That's really too bad. While the first Star Trek movie was awful (even hard core Trekkies agree with you on that), the second and several of the others have been very good. Even among the die hard faithful, everyone seems to agree that the even number movies are great, while the odd numbered movies... aren't. Though the 3rd is among the best of the odd numbers, and is absolutely essential plot wise, since the 2nd through 4th make a coherent trilogy.

I highly recommend the 2nd through 4th (Wrath of Khan, Search for Spock, and The Voyage Home), followed by the 6th (The Undiscovered Country) with the original crew. Definitely skip the 5th. Then First Contact with the Next Generation crew (which is technically the 8th movie) is also very good, though it's best if you watched enough of the TV show to know about the borg and Picard's very personal history with them before you see it.

Sorry to ramble, but I've actually been going through these again lately, so it's on my mind.

As for my top ten (in no particular order after the Star Wars trilogy, which have been at the top of my list since they were first made):

1. The Empire Strikes Back
2. Star Wars
3. Return of the Jedi
4. Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan
5. Gamers: Dorkness Rising (Must see for anyone who ever played Dungeons and Dragons or similar table top RPGs. The DVD even has d20 subtitles.)
6. Shrek
7. Back to the Future
8. Blazing Saddles
9. Ghostbusters

Hmm... If I was home staring at my DVD collection, I'm sure I could come up with more favorites. And there are quite a few that I'm thinking of that are movies I really like, but I'm not sure if they're worth of "top ten" status.
