As a movie lover, this category is a killer. It is also constantly evolving as I age. At the moment (mid 30’s), this is my top 25. Top 10 was too restrictive. Are these the 25 BEST movies ever made? Some of them, yes, but mostly no. These are my cinematic equivalent of comfort food. As can be expected, many are films I watched repeatedly in my misspent youth.

  1. Chinatown (1974)
  2. The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  3. The Big Lebowski (1998)
  4. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)
  5. Star Wars
  6. The Party (1968)
  7. The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976)
  8. Jaws (1975)
  9. Caddyshack (1980)
  10. Bullitt (1968)
  11. It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963)
  12. A Christmas Story (1983)
  13. The Godfather
  14. Kill Bill (2003)
  15. Inglorious Basterds (2009)
  16. Used Cars (1980)
  17. Ronin (1998)
  18. The Road Warrior (1981)
  19. Christmas Vacation (1989)
  20. Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
  21. Blazing Saddles (1974)
  22. Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams (1990)
