Schindler's List will remain in my #1 position for all time to pay homage to every Polish Jew that lost his/her life in WWII. The other reason requires no explanation.

I believe this to be the greatest animation ever created... and critics overwhelmingly agree. It easily wins the award for most jaw-dropping action scenes (only beat out by The Matrix). Additionally, the dialog is quite sophisticated.

Not a huge Simpsons fan but this movie was fan-friggin-tastic. It was the perfect blend of comedy, social/political commentary, drama and romance. The transitions between all of these never felt forced or cheesy. Basically, the movie was brilliant and done in the typical genius fashion of The Simpsons. Ugh, I might as well just bite the bullet and say I guess I am a fan of the series after all...

I'm having a difficult time putting these in order since I'm not particularly good at comparing things - especially when they are of very similar qualities. However, they are for the most part in correct order. One of the obvious problems is that the ratings don't correlate with my rankings. I make no plans to reorganize the list since the movies fade in memory over time and I'd therefore rather rely on my initial impressions.
