    My three nominations:

    The Green Mile - genius.
    The Shawshank Redemption - genre-defining.
    Remember The Titans - criminally under-rated.

    Always hard to think of favs as its too easy to forget films

    My 3 from different genres (will prob change as I think of more)
    - Zulu
    - Watership Down
    - Theres Something About Mary

    2 (quite) recent films I really enjoyed were
    - Spellbound
    - Napoleon Dynamite

    Really thought this was a poor film. Had it bought for me on DVD and find it hard to watch. Far too formulaic and obvious. But I generally dont like these type of films but I can understand how some do.

    The obvious: The Godfather 1 & 2, Taxi Driver, Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, Psycho, American History X... and yes... The Shawshank Redemption isn't bad either.

    The less obvious: Missing, Cube, Short Cuts, Lantana, The China Syndrome, Chopper, Bob Roberts (if only for the songs), Memento, Sin City (yeah, some of us actually liked it a lot), Blade Runner.

    There's heaps of others really, probably some that are better than those mentioned, but they're all great films.

    It's A Wonderful Life, Fight Club, Leon and Sin City are films I forgot but would have been on or close to my list. In fact It's A Wonderful Life is possibly IMO the best film ever.

    Very good list but The Wedding Planner!!
