Not the 27 I'd come up with.

Jurassic Park, Pulp Fiction, Mad Max Fury Road and Amelie are the only ones I would pick. A lot of bad movies on here:A Knights Tale, Princess Diaries,Forrest Gump, 10 Things,Ever After.
Where's Shawshank, Good the Bad & the Ugly or The Big Lebowski, Casablanca?
These lists are always subjective but this one is pretty lame and mostly post 2000.

I agree, and I hope Jeff Meyerson's head doesn't explode if he reads the list and sees Gump on it.

As usual, I find Steve's opinions almost diametrically opposed to mine. But we do agree (as Bill predicted) on Forrest Gump. I couldn't watch the new Mad Max movie once, and Amelie was way too cutesy for me. And naturally, Buzzfeed readers are way younger than me.

10 Things I Hate About You? Make me watch it, I dare you.

Of this list, the ones we do rewatch (some regularly, some occasionally) are:

When Harry Met Sally... (on New Year's Eve)
The Princess Bride
Love Actually (on or around Christmas)

There are a few others I liked enough that I could sit through them again, but generally don't.

Some others we do rewatch:
Casablanca
Two for the Road
Groundhog Day
Independence Day (this and the next because they are favorites of Jackie's, not mine)
The Day After Tomorrow
National Lampoon's Animal House
1776 (on July 4, duh)
It's a Gift

There are others.

Any love for THE REPLACEMENTS? KUFFS?

By coincidence I happened to watch WHEN HARRY MET SALLY for the first timer in years a couple of days ago. Nah, it's OK but essentially it's just a dumbed down Woody Allen movie.

I happen to really like 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, at least most of it. It's downhill once the shrew is tamed, so to speak. "Oh that must be Nigel with the Brie" is a great line.

My suggestions:
The Ladykillers (1955 original, thank you very much). Or just about any classic Ealing comedy.
Duck Soup
The Testament of Dr. Mabuse
Double Indemnity
