It's tough making a list of only ten favorite movies. I could easily do ten from each genre, but here are some in no particular order.

Leap Year (Romantic comedy)

Raiders of the Lost Ark (Adventure)

Blade Runner (Sci-Fi)

Star Trek the Wrath of Khan (Sci-Fi)

Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope (Sci-Fi)

Galaxy Quest (Comedy/Sci-Fi)

Ford vs. Ferrari (Action/Drama)

The Lord of the Rings the Fellowship of the Ring. (Fantasy)

West Side Story (Musical)

Psycho (Horror)

Edge of Tomorrow (Action, Sci-Fi)

Pam, I didn't list favorites per se, just movies that I could (and have) watched over and over. But you reminded me of one - Wrath of Khan is definitely on my list!!! I actually saw William Shatner present the movie at a screening here in Rochester in April 2018; he was great, very funny.

And just for laughs:

Late to the party, but happy to see so many of my favorites already mentioned.

Bringing Up Baby
Poltergeist
Jaws
The Birds
Back to the Future I & III
The Parent Trap
That Darn Cat
Pillow Talk
Funny Farm
Dodgeball
Sliding Doors
A Christmas Story
Friendly Persuasion
Meet Me in St. Louis
The Sound of Music
Grease
The Wizard of Oz

Especially over the past year and a half, I often have the middle group of Harry Potter movies Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince on in the background as a kind of soothing white noise.

I really miss the days of serendipitously discovering wonderful movies on tv late at night or on a weekend afternoon.

Independence Day

MOST (but not all) of M Night Shyamalan's movies, but especially Unbreakable, Signs, and The Sixth Sense

I'm sure there are other favorites that I'm missing!
My sister loves Lars and the Real Girl. She texted me just yesterday that she found it at Dollar Tree, presumably for a buck.
