OT - Your All-Time Favorite Movie is.....?

Submitted by xtramelanin on June 3rd, 2016 at 9:26 PM

Mates,

I haven't been to a movie in years and can't tell you the last one I did see in a theatre. However, oldest son asked me to take him to see 'Captain America - Civil War' as a birthday gift since his birthday was last week and we just got back.  He enjoyed it so I'm glad, but I must admit that I'm too old to really enjoy those types of films much, but also that they did have a few good one-liners mixed in toward the end of the flick.  

I am adding a link here to the highest box office grossing films, which was a discussion we had on the way home.  I was surprised to see how many titles that I had neither seen nor heard of :  http://www.the-numbers.com/movie/records/All-Time-Worldwide-Box-Office

So, with a nod to the Monday thread about favorite war movies, what are the Mgobloggers all-time favorite movies?

EDIT:  Should've done it by decade.  Just looking at the 80's you have a boatload of classics: Lethal Weapon, Beverly Hills Cop, Top Gun, Caddyshack, Field of Dreams, and on...

Have a great weekend,  Looks like Lake Michigan is warm enough to swim in, so might try that tomorrow with the sons.

That is a tough one. Can't narrow it down to one. Empire Strikes Back is on the list because it's the first movie I remember seeing at the theater. Goodfellas. Platoon. Reservoir Dogs.

Drama: Good Will Hunting or The Departed
Comedy: Trading Places or Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Documentary: Citizenfour or Amy

Edit: Not sure what this makes it, but for some reason Hitch always makes me feel better no matter how shitty of a day it is.
