Off the top of my head, the following films are automatic 10/10's:

The Godfather I & II
Lawrence of Arabia
Seven Samurai
Blade Runner (The Final Cut)
Raging Bull
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Apocalypse Now
The Bridge on the River Kwai
The Deer Hunter
The French Connection
Raiders of the Lost Ark
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
Heat
Saving Private Ryan
The Shawshank Redemption
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Monty Python's Life of Brian
Animal House
Dr. Strangelove
Full Metal Jacket

Pretty sure I'm missing more, of course, but those are the films that stand out for the moment.

I love that movie so much, it's very rare to find a comedy that is clean and still remains funny. What's wrong with it? It was loved when it came out, now everyone seems to hate it.

You should see the rest, if you haven't seen them. ;-D

I forgot to add Le Samourai. Alain Delon was the epitome of cool in his day.

It's a love it or hate it movie. I love it. I have several family members (my mom) that hate it. I think they are retarded.

I never read the book, but I think the movie is a little overrated. It is monumental and very powerful, but I definitely would not give it a 10/10. It may be one of the most influential/powerful movies, but I would not rank it among the best. There's a difference IMO. Just my two cents.
