This category is a killer as it constantly evolves as I age. At the moment (Early 40’s), this is my top 20. I found a top 10 to be too restrictive. Are these the 20 BEST movies ever made? No, which is why I call them “favorites”. They are comfort food.

As can be expected, many were watched repeatedly in my misspent youth. If something pops in produced after 1997, that is quite the film indeed.

  1. The Big Lebowski (1998)
  2. Chinatown (1974)
  3. The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  4. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)
  5. The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976)
  6. The Party (1968)
  7. The Godfather Saga (1972-74)
  8. Star Wars (1977)
  9. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
  10. Jaws (1975)
  11. Caddyshack (1980)
  12. Kill Bill (2003-04)
  13. The Karate Kid (1984)
  14. Blazing Saddles (1974)
  15. Bullitt (1968)
  16. Inglorious Basterds (2009)
  17. It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963)
  18. Rocky (1976)
  19. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)
  20. The Dark Crystal (1982)

These will never break the top 10, or even the waiting list for top 20. However there is something special about them. Some are so bad they’re good, all are insane.

  • Forbidden Zone (1980)
  • The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
  • The Room (2003)
  • Zardoz (1974)
  • Popeye (1980)
  • Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)
