  1. Cleveland 52 says :

    So many to pick but I love Big Fish.

  2. Ashley T says :

    favorite movie – momento

  3. MaryKaye Mackulin says :

    Jaws… Most probably #1; vivid memories of being 12 and seeing it in the theatre, not wanting to swim that summer at my grandparents cottage on Lake Erie – Um, yes, the lake – No sharks there. But, I WAS 12. Your’e gonna need a bigger boat.

  4. Alexis says :

    Drop Dead Gorgeous. It’s just funny all the way through and never gets old no matter how many times I watch it.

  5. eatdrinkcleveland says :

    Grease! I never get sick of watching it. Maybe has something to do with my HUGE crush on John Travolta as a kid…

  6. amyc says :

    Favorite movie is Nightmare Before Christmas- I am a huge Tim Burton fan. He’s done so many great movies, its hard to pick just one!

  7. Jess says :

    My favorite flick of all time has to be ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’. Not only is it a hilarious classic, it’s insanely quotable. Do you find yourself struggling to make conversation at a party? Just drop the phrase “Bring me a shrrrrubbery!” Suddenly, you’re the funniest gal/guy in the room.

  8. Todd Lewis says :

    I’ll go with Shawshank Redemption. Great story of hope and perserverance.

  9. Gina Gutshall says :

    I love so many movies but I’ll go with Stand By Me :)

  10. Will Kauff says :

    hmmm Most favorite movie of all time… Thats a HARD one. I’m going Wizard of Oz, it was a mainstay in my childhood and I can still watch it over and over today!

  11. Kimberly @ cleveland says :

    The original Godfather. I just can’t get enough!

  12. meg says :

    Stardust! A rare movie that stays true to the book it was based on. Cinematography and design are beautiful and Robert DeNiro is hilarious.

  13. Tiffan Clark says :

    The Usual Suspects — all time favorite!

  14. Kate Hanna says :

    Dutch…a total classic. An absolute must-see and the perfect Thansgiving flick.

  15. A. D,. says :


  16. J. D. says :

    I think I’ve seen Top Gun a million times and it thrills me every time… I was 10 when it came out and all I could do was fantasize that I was Kelly McGillis… still do!

  17. SarahH says :

    A League of Their Own. I love baseball movies!

  18. Nicole C. says :

    This is a tough one, but I’d have to say Forrest Gump. A true tail of blind acceptance, faith in humankind, coincidence vs. fate, the power of nonjudgement and, most of all, unconditional love.

  19. Kathie Wesolowski says :

    I love all of the great musicals; my favorite is My Fair Lady. I could have danced all night…

  20. Danyell says :

    Gone with the Wind. Great historical film that shows the true strength of a woman and what she would do for her family!

  21. kevin jackson says :

    O Brother Where Art Thou.

  22. julianomis says :

    I’d really like to pick the whole Lord of the Rings trilogy, but if I have to pick a specific film, it would be Return of the King.

  23. Jamey says :

    Mine has to be Rozencrantz and Guilderstern are Dead. If you haven’t seen it, put it on your to do list.

  24. Sharla Fasko says :

    Fried Green Tomatoes

  25. Rich Phillis says :

    ” Miracle ” The movie about the 1980 US Olympic Hockey , Kurt Russel plays Herb Brooks the coach of the American team in a fantastic performance !

  26. Ernestine Burke says :

    I can’t honestly say there is just one; but if I have to give jusf one it would be Irreconcileable Differences. I can so relate to Shelly Long in that movie…..

  27. Evelyn Neal says :

    Classic, Ben Hur.

  28. Beth says :

    Wow- so many great ones! Gone With the Wind. Enough said.

  29. Ashton says :

    Reservoir Dogs –Got to love Tarantino

  30. Eric Kazen says :

    Being a student and lover of film I have thousands of favorites. But if I had to narrow it down to only one, then I will have to go with RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. This 1981 cinematic masterpiece has everything….action, humor, suspense, romance, fantasy, chases, fights, exotic locales, one-liners, nazis, traps, special effects, and quite possibly the coolest, most realistic hero ever, Indiana Jones. THAT is how you make a nearly perfect movie.

  31. Melanie Furey (@MelanieFurey) says :

    So many to chose from but I would have to chose a past Oscar winner-Chicago.

  32. Marti Lugli says :

    silence of the lambs!

  33. Kevin Cronin says :

    All time? “To Kill a Mockingbird” with Gregory Peck, in award winning adaptation by Howard Foote.

  34. Sherry Arthur says :

    I am going to have to say The Breakfast Club. John Hughes just really knew how to capture the plights of american teens. He had many great movies this was just my favorite. I mean what teen couldn’t identify with one of them :)

  35. Tracy Lin says :

    Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. Hands down :)

  36. Wes says :

    It would have to be Hitchcock’s ‘North by Northwest’!

  37. Sukki says :

    Braveheart. Although Mel G has not behaved well in the past few years, this is a great movie that inspires me to make history and fight for the underdog.

  38. bri says :

    Darjeeling Limited

  39. Brian says :

    The Big Lebowski!

  40. Adam says :

    I would have to say The Artist. It took the art of film back to the basics. It really showed that movies don’t need the unnecessary flashy budgets that other films give us. It renewed the art.

  41. Vicki Winner says :

    My favorite flick was “The Notebook.” I loved how the story unfolded at the end.

  42. killer5 says :

    1987 Merchant Ivory “A Room With A View” – it’s funny, it’s a period piece, it has great scenery, it’s romantic, it adheres closely to the book

  43. Aaron D. Marks says :

    This is a tough one! I am going to have to go with “Blue Velvet”.
    I still remember the first time I saw it. How I felt, who I was with, where I was, and what I thought when it was over.

  44. JoAnn says :

    My favorite movie of all time – Gone with the Wind.

  45. tlcolson says :

    If I have to pick just one, its Braveheart. Powerful movie with a beautiful soundtrack.

  46. Elizabeth Gibson says :

    The Princess Bride is my all time favorite!!

  47. Brendan T Hughes says :

    Synecdoche, New York. Some of Kaufman’s best work.

  48. jay book says :

    gangs of new york

  49. Joe says :

    Have a hard time picking between Gangs of New York, Apocalypse Now, Godfather, Long Riders, There will be blood. Contest is over so I don’t have to choose…..whew!
