"Best" Movies

I'm not used to seeing movie lists at Pharyngula, but it was an interesting tidbit in the midst of the usual fun stuff over there. He links to another science blog's list of "best movies":
The Last Picture Show.
The Passion of Joan of Arc.
Wings of Desire
The Best Years of Our Lives.
Aguirre, the Wrath of God.

Make Way for Tomorrow (1937).
Tokyo Story, Late Spring, Early Spring, and Late Autumn.
Lawrence of Arabia.
On the Waterfront.
The Wizard of Oz.
The Godfather Parts I and II.
Y Tu Mama Tambien.
Ones I've seen are in bold print. That post has 132 comments.

PZ Myers offers a list of 5 movies that made him happy:
The Incredible Shrinking Man
The Goonies
Children of the Damned
Attack of the Monsters
I've only seen one from his list. His post has 296 comments.

There are lots of movie suggestions in the comments to both posts.

My list of 5 films that made a lasting impression on me:
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
The Piano
Carnival of Souls
Of course, if I were to make a list tomorrow it'd be completely different.
