My All-Time Favorite Motion Pictures, for the majority listed by preference and quality. In order for a movie to be included here, it must receive AT LEAST an 8/10. I've gotten a lot more strict about the flicks in which I do add nowadays, so these are all very important to me.

I'm thinking about restricting it to 100, but for now, I'll just wing it with whichever number it amounts to.

Some movies are "guilty" favorites, but most are those I hold very close to me. Quality, entertainment value and personal preference.

Most Popular Actors:

Leonardo DiCaprio: Starring in 6 films

Robert DeNiro: Starring in 5 films

Chris Cooper: Starring in 5 films

Matt Damon: Starring in 5 films

Tom Hanks: Starring in 4 films


Honorable Mentions: movies that are "this" close to making the list:

The Lady Vanishes
Double Indemnity
The Silence of the Lambs
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Crank 1 and 2
The Game
The Goonies
The Wizard of Oz
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
Die Hard
Saving Private Ryan

Most Recent Additions:
Step Brothers at #61
Foxcatcher at #67
Pulp Fiction at #47
Shutter Island at #55
Hostel at #63
Hostel: Part II at #62
Zodiac, at #25
L.A. Confidential, at #28

UPDATE: 'The Departed', after nine great years, is finally dethroned by Scorsese's other masterpiece, 'GoodFellas'.
