    This is basically impossible to do. Kind of like naming your top 5 favorite songs. You could easily name 100, and it depends on what kind of mood you're in. But I'll take a stab at it.

    In no particular order.....

    Shawshank
    Schindler's List
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    Good Will Hunting
    Jojo Rabbit

    Back to the Future
    Shawshank
    Friday
    Office Space
    Field of Dreams or just about any great baseball movie

    There are a lot of other movies mentioned so far that if I was flipping through the channels and saw the title I would stop and watch it too.

    Oh man, you should definitely put that at the top of your list. It's one of the most amazing stories I've read.

    Ugh,

    I'd have to start with genres and then some type of bracketed tournament...

    Military
    Western
    Comedy
    Sports
    Sci-fi
    Action
    Fantasy
    Romance

    There's a lot more, crap, this is going to take some time.

    Let's just go with some near the top

    Good Will Hunting
    Blazing Saddles
    Top Gun
    Spaceballs
    3:10 to Yuma
    Aladdin (animated)
    Infinity War

    I'm with KC, this is too hard.

    I haven't done a formal tally but it seems that Shawshank Redemption, Good Will Hunting and Back to the Future are listed the most so far.

    I have not seen Good Will Hunting in a while. I might have to watch that one again soon.

    Honestly I think he was the same guy, he just didn't have the people around him pulling the reins on him.

    I loved the book "Into the Wild", and the soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks ever, but I thought the movie was just "decent".... but nothing great.
