Life Itself (2018).

This movie positively surprised me in so many ways. For those who take the chance, I hope you will find similar unexpected joy.

Obviously my 13 year old self would insist that films like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Die Hard top any such list. But I'll go another tack, and list movies that surprised me how good they were and have stuck with me ever since.

Tell No One (2006) - Best thriller since 2000 and Guillaume Canet's best film about a man who discovers his wife is still alive after a decade; a crime for which is unsolved and he is the prime suspect. Truly a masterpiece in the spirit of Hitchcock.

Seven Samurai (1954) - Obviously Kurosawa's masterpiece doesn't need any additional praise (prominently located on many critic's best-films-of-all-time lists), but when I finally saw this film as an adult it's hard to not to see all the films that have found inspiration from this film, but also how much better The Seven Samurai is than all of the imitators.

WALL-E (2008) - My vote for the best animated film of all-time and easily Pixar's greatest achievement. Beyond the film's poignant parable and enjoyable comedic hijinks, it's first and foremost a love story about two unlikely heroes. Nothing reminds me more of the power of cinema than watching a sentient trash compactor nearly meet his end and not help but get teary-eyed.

The Big Lebowski (1998) - Very few movies are as funny to me after 20 years and this film, in fact, it seems to get better after every viewing. My vote for greatest comedy of all-time, if only for that urine-soaked rug...it really did bring tie the room together.

Das Boot (1981) - The best example of claustrophobic filmmaking, and a nearly perfect military film/WWII film. Honorable mention to Dunkirk (2017).

I really enjoyed that movie, especially your favorite part.

Just to be pedantic, on page 2, one of the listings refers to "the hand of the market" and the other lists The Sound of Music among "memorable" movies, rather than "favorite" movies.

IMHO, it can also be worthwhile to do arcs with thematic relations. Like "Seven Samurais", "The Magnificent Seven", "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", "Kill Bill", and "A Bug's Life" might work nicely. Or, of course, Shakespearean movies (there are so many King Lear or Romeo and Juliet or Hamlet variants). There are movie tropes so deep that sometimes directors don't even know they're remaking them, and it is sometimes interesting to get to where you can see what's going on. [Sometimes it just ruins the enjoyment of the movie, though, when it's a poorly-done retread but perfectly adequate eye candy.]
Yes! We used to do Movie Sundays, where people showed up for brunch, and we'd play 2-3 movies with thematic connections - such as Excalibur, and then The Holy Grail. Or Sean Connery Films. Or Enter the Dragon, and Kentucky Fried Movie...a fun way to juxtapose expected and unexpected films. It's still how I tend to "lump" my lists:

Hitchcock: To Catch a Thief? Or Rear Window? Or North by Northwest?
Monty Python: Life of Brian or The Holy Grail?
Coen Brothers: Raising Arizona? Or Barton Fink? Or The Big Lebowski? Or The Hudsucker Proxy?
James Cameron: Terminator 2? Or Aliens? Or The Abyss?
Ridley Scott: Blade Runner? Or The Martian? Or Gladiator?
George Lucas: Star Wars? Or Indiana Jones?
Joel Schumacher: The Lost Boys? Or ... yeah, let's just stick with The Lost Boys.

So, if I'm stuck with 5 movies on a Desert Island:

- Rear Window (Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly!)
- Life of Brian (Irreverent and smart and Monty Python!)
- Raising Arizona (Nicolas Cage's hair should have won Best Supporting Actor).
- Indiana Jones (Swashbuckling!)
- The Incredibles! (Best animated film ever).

Indiana Jones made the Top 5, and I listed it above under Lucas.

If I'm on a desert island, that's the only Spielberg I need. Not a huge fan.

All true :D
Hmmmmmm.....
As we said in high school latin: "de gustibus non est disputandum"
That was true in 1975 and still is. :D
But.....

Which is better: Cool Hand Luke or Pride and Prejudice?
Survey men and I bet you get one answer. Survey women, I bet you get another.

Or

Which is better: Young Frankenstein or Ted?
Survey the over 60 crowd and the results will differ from Gen Z

I'm in the first survey group for both questions and completely happy about it. I just recognize that I probably don't speak for the others.
