entropic ankh's "Top 10 Favorite Movies" on Lists of Bests

I hardly ever list my favorite movies, music artists, or books so I'm not sure why I was compelled to make this list tonight. It was easier than I thought it would be. It's mostly the very few movies in my life that I have obsessively watched over and over, or wish I could. These are movies that in some way or another have affected large portions of my life, or at least occupied more than four hours of my time.

I wonder how other people decide on their favorite movies? I know I see some people change their facebook favorites so often that it can't be the same criteria as mine; theirs seems more like a favorite of the moment. So I have two questions for you: What are your favorite movies (not necessarily top ten) and how did you choose?

((The list of bests site is wonky as of this writing, I apologize if the link does not behave well for you.))

  1. My favorite movie is The Usual Suspects.

    After that it's kind of muddled. Probably something like this:
    American Beauty
    The Big Kahuna
    Schindler's List
    The Shawshank Redemption
    The Silence of the Lambs
    L.A. Confidential
    The Princess Bride
    Big Fish
    Saving Private Ryan

    I choose movies based on both their repeat watchability and how they move me.
