Some excellent choices. I agree about  A Time To Kill.  I was all set for Matthew McConaughey to be my new favorite actor, but nothing after that compared.

 

I also agree about Shutter Island and Revolutionary Road.

Hi daisyk, if you need to edit tap on those three little dots in the upper right hand corner of your post it a pull down menu and allows you to edit as one of the choices.

All Fred Astaire & Ginger movies - the best

My Blue Heaven with Steve Martin - hilarious

Shirley Valentine - wonderful

Out of Africa - so sad and beautiful

 

And so many more but I can - and do - watch those mentioned above over and over when I need to relax.

No doubt Pretty Woman! I have to watch it whenever it is on TV. Seen it a hundred times at least.

His closing statement to the jurors was nothing short of excellent writing and so very heartwrenching...a brilliant delivery by McConaughey!

 

added note:...I shortened most of quoted post, as to not make it too long.

Re: What are your top favorite movies?

I am thoroughly enjoying this thread as many of my favorites (some I'd almost forgotten) have been mentioned.

 

We enjoy TCM more than any other TV channel.
