In no particular order...

Star Wars IV A New Hope
Groundhog Day
Army of Darkness
Shawshank Redemption
Cast Away

Whoever said Jaws is nuts.  That's about the last movie I would want to watch if I was stuck on a deserted island.  :o

THREE votes.  Amazing. I think I would rather watch Total Recal in Spanish.  What did you like about the movie?  Outside of the skimpy clothing, I thought this was a pretty predictible yawn fest.

Lee-Lu Dallas multipass....  ;)

I honestly have no idea Justin, but it's like watching that movie for the first time everytime I see it.  It's very rare that I can get that much playback from a movie.

Well actually, I feel the same way, but its likely due to the fact that I fall asleep from boredom 15 minutes into the flick....  ;)

I'm not going to bother listing Star Wars, since I think it goes without saying for all of us here. Though if I had to pick just one of the six, it would be ROTJ.

I have also limited myself to one each from the LOTR and Indy series so they don't completely take over. :P

My five:

The Big Lebowski
Casino
Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade
Kingdom of Heaven
LOTR: Return of the King Extended Edition

By the way, 5th Element was on TV Friday night, so I watched it while working in the basement and it was just as bad as I remembered.   :P

I can't list my top 5 because it would be full of sequels but "The Godfater" movies need to be in everyone's top list.
