This is one of those topics where I can't give a definitive answer. I love so many films that it's hard to narrow my favorites down to just five.

Having said that, I'll give it a shot...

1. Seven Samurai
2. The Big Sleep (1946)
3. The Petrified Forest
4. Goodfellas
5. Dr. No

Those are pretty representative of my favorite movies. There are probably another 20-30 movies that I'd like to list, but it is a TOP 5 list per the topic, so....there you go.

Actually, I'd probably be a lot more accurate if I went top 5 by genre, but I'll have to do that later... (That's going to take some time.)
