The Princess Bride

Ever After
The Godfather II
Harold and Maude


I almost took off the Princess Bride, but then I realized the only reason it doesn't hit me the way it used to is because I've overdosed on it - so that must mean it's worth keeping on the list.

EDIT: Five is not enough! Argh! I just remembered Going My Way. It has to be on the list, but I can't take anything off.

Any top 5 list I give is almost guaranteed to change depending on exactly when you ask me, but I'll take a shot at it:

Brazil
Frankenstein/Bride of Frankenstein (I can't choose. You'll have to cut me some slack.)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Dawn of the Dead (the original George Romero version)
Planet of the Apes (original, again; not the remake)

I can't possibly list five, but the first two Godfather films would be in my top list. I can't think of two finer films about crime, the American family, and about a dozen other topics.
