      Jurassic Park, Congo, Judgement Night, Pumping Iron and probably a few more.

      Basically my favorite movies are the ones I know by heart.

        I was a total vidiot, I would list movies I know by heart but it might crash the retrojunk servers. If it was made between 1975 and 1990ish and it was sci-fi/fantasy/action I probably know it by heart.
        "What" ain't no country I've ever heard of. They speak English in What?

                            In approximate order from least to most trashy:

                            Metropolis (Fritz Lang) - I found it browsing the video store in the 90s, not knowing anything about it. I was amazed and that was just the Giorgio Moroder version. Finding more restored and complete versions later with original score etc. was always great. Of course I had to watch each version multiple times.

                            Pi - A guy who lived in my dorm 1st year college told me about this. I love the rhythm and repetition. Watching it just feels like a ritual.

                            Bringing Out the Dead - I'm not sure why I've seen this so many times. But I like it so much. Even people who hate Nicolas Cage because of his crappy movies can enjoy this.

                            12 Monkeys - I saw this in the theater. Later in film school I saw La Jetee. Like the Twilight Zone, it shows sci-fi concepts in a (mostly) mundane, present-day environment.

                            The Fifth Element - Bruce Willis really is one of my favorites...before The Whole Nine Yards when he started going downhill.

                            The Big Lebowski - I'm not sure what it is about this movie. Many people are obsessed with it. There are bars and stores and festivals themed around it. I believe it's because it is the most accessible from the Coen brothers, although I find them always clever and delightful.

                            Short Circuit (both of them) - The first one was one of my favorite movies shown on the WPIX weekend/late night rotation when I was a kid. I like the sequel even more. Johnny 5 is alternately charming, funny, and cool while Fisher Stevens is consistently hilarious. Although the fact he is really white and not Indian kind of taints his performance for me.

                            Desperate Living - Not sure if this is the first John Waters movie I saw, but it certainly made the biggest impression. My best friend recorded it on cassette tape and we would listen to it while driving around in his car.

                            The Toxic Avenger - Troma's weird strategy of making a Saturday morning cartoon out of this very violent and gory superhero story worked, I had to see this as soon as I found out about it.

                            There are probably more, that I can't think of offhand. But all of these have wonderful cinematography in their own way, as well as great stories.

                                    Comes to mind The Seventh Seal. I had to do a paper on College about it. Great stuff.
