    I like these forum threads where people construct a list of favorite books, songs, or anything really. Sometimes you can learn a lot about a person from their choices.

    Anyway, here are my top ten favorite movies of all time, in no particular order. No explanations, no honorable mentions -- just the list.

    Annie Hall
    Singin' In the Rain
    Some Like It Hot
    Vertigo
    Rear Window
    Sunset Boulevard
    Double Indemnity
    Network
    The Third Man
    It Happened One Night

    Movies are pretty tight. I try to see movies often, but I end up doing it like once a month. I really like:

    Lawrence of Arabia
    Shawshank Redemption
    The Green Mile
    Road to Perdition
    The Big Lebowski
    The Prestige
    3:10 to Yuma (that was pretty awesome!)
    Schindler's List
    AI
    Knocked Up (I thought this was hilarious, but superbad not so much)

    Don't worry MascJock, you listed Bambi in your top ten, i think that will cool the flames of the haters.

    I was going to list my top 10 movies, but, I detect that this thread is evolving into an enabling of someone's persecution complex. However, though it's not one of my top 10, I feel compelled to mention "Tootsie".

    Aero -

    Not sure which one you mean...

    Maybe "Funkalicious" by Resident Filters or "You're Wondering Now" by The Specials and Fun Boy Three.

    You can always find the sountrack credits for it at the IMDb site.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0336910/soundtrack
