I have a thing for these films- BJM, Adaptation, Memento, Vanilla Sky, Mulholland Drive.
You've probably seen it but if you haven't and you enjoyed those movies, check out The Game.

Either way, my favorite movie of all time is Ghostbusters, with Army of Darkness as runner up.

If Kate is overweight, it's in all the right places. I won't bother commenting on Titanic though - not that I don't have lots to say, just that none of it is positive.

All-timers: Notorious, It Happened One Night, Roman Holiday, The Third Man, City Lights, Taxi Driver
Recent Notables: Shakespeare in Love, Shawshank Redemption, Saving Private Ryan, Love Actually, Searching for Bobby Fischer, Batman Begins, Goodfellas

Etc.

Memento
Fight Club
Seven
Shawshank Redemption (still mind boggling that Stephen King wrote it.)

Classics for me being the age I am:
Wedding Crashers
Old School
Beerfest
Super Troopers

Also, they may be cheesy for most but Im a guy and have always loved the Bond movies. But there were a few terrible ones.
