Grandma's boy? Wow! That's in my top 10 comedies of all time... but I didn't see that comin at all. LOL.

Aliens and SPR are 2 damn fine movies that could have easily made my list.

Haha yeah that's a funny one. Pretty much anything that Matrix wannabe guy (JD?) says is gold.

I'm a Nick Swardson fan myself. He came off the funniest to me by far.

My favorites are the LotR series and Star Wars series but I can't break them out so we'll consider them 1 movie. For the rest I'll pick obscure movies I like

1) Star Wars series
2) LotR Series
3) Airborne - Cool rollerblading race at the end. Jack Black is in it. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106233/
4) Fire Birds - Top Gun with Helicopters, Nick Cage, Tommy Lee Jones. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099575/
5) Camp - Just a funny, happy movie about a acting camp filled with gay kids. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0342167/

That's tough.

1) Amadeus
2) Goodfellas
3) A Beautiful Mind
4) Amelie
5) Good Will Hunting

The first 4 are accurate. Not sure about the 5th. Amadeus is by far and away my favorite movie of all time.

I'm having a hard time narrowing it down to just 5 but here's my best effort

Not necessarily in order

1) Patton
2) We Were Soldiers
3) Real Genius
4) The Breakfast Club
5) Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Edit: I thought about including Band of Brothers but that's not really a "movie" to me.
