1. Secondhand Lions
    Pure gold from start to finish.
  2. Sense and Sensibility
    That one with Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman. Even my dad likes it, and he generally hates Jane Austen movies.
  3. Medicine Man
    Sean Connery isn't just a great James Bond - he makes this movie about an isolated researcher in the rainforest a masterpiece that will have you reevaluating your stance on the environment.
  4. Blade Runner
    You'll never look at a city in the rain the same way again.
  5. Guardians of the Galaxy
    Who doesn't love a well-done superhero space romp with a great soundtrack?
  6. The Princess Bride
    It's a well-rounded classic with loads of quotable lines that can be used in multiple settings - weddings, hikes, sports; you name it, there's a magnificent quote.
  7. The Force Awakens
    Yes, yes, I'm a predictable nerd, but it's a well-done movie!
  8. The Magnificent Seven/Seven Samurai
    Hands-down one of the best westerns I've ever seen, and the original Kurosawa film is even more magnificent.
