    I have to go with "What the Bleep do We Know" I love movies but documentaries have a special place for me and this one rocked me to the core. I think about it almost on a daily basis and I saw it over 2 years ago.
    I really liked "The Secrect" but I thought it was very Masonic in nature where others do not.

    Then I would go with
    Forest Gump
    Half Baked
    Dazed and Confused
    Happy Gilmore
    Zoolander
    Step Brothers and all those movies in that genere

    i like how Pulp Fiction made both the top 6 and an honorable mention :)


    man, listing 10 movies is so damn hard... i used to tutor from my home computer around 100 hours a month, so I'd just pop in a dvd and tutor from the laptop... getting 30+ netflix movies down a month.

    In no particular order:

    A Clockwork Orange
    American Beauty
    The Godfather
    Apocalypse Now
    Full Metal Jacket
    Goodfellas

    Braveheart
    Casino
    Pulp Fiction
    Office Space
    Donnie Darko
    Snatch
    Fight Club
    Platoon
    V is for Vandetta
    Good Will Hunting
    Dark Knight
    Invasion of the Body Snatchers
    American Psycho
    The Matrix (only the first one)
    Fellowship of the Ring

    I have attempted to put them in order:

    1. Fight Club
    2. Requiem for a Dream
    3. Donnie Darko
    4. Apocalypse Now
    5. The Godfather
    6. American Beauty

    In your opinion what makes a movie a GREAT movie? Is it being different? Is it the acting, screenplay? What is it?

    Movies are art. So, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". My choices of great movies may not agree with the next guy's. In fact, I usually disagree with the awards shows (Oscars, etc).
