    1. Heat


    2. The Departed
    3. Goodfellas
    4. Forrest Gump
    5. Inception
    6. Raging Bull
    7. The Last of the Mohicans
    8. Saving Private Ryan
    9. Memento
    10. Gone Baby Gone


    ----------------------------

    #1 is undisputed, for me. I have probably watched that movie hundreds of times (at a 3 hour running time, I shudder to think of how many hours of my life I've spent on the couch watching that). The rest are in no particular order. Lots of Scorcese up there. I can probably expand this list to 25-30, but those are the ones that always stand out for me.

    Most of those would be in my top 25. Good call on Collateral. Very good but under mentioned movie.

    In no real order:

    Die Hard (supreme watchability for me)
    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
    Heat
    Hunt for Red October
    Seven Samurai
    Godfather II
    Goodfellas
    Terminator II
    Interstellar
    Aliens
    Inglourious Basterds
    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
    Black Hawk Down
    Lord of the Rings (trilogy)
    Predator (another one high on watchability)
    Collateral (watched this maybe 50 times)
    Dark Knight Rises
    The Big Lebowski

    I could probably keep going...and who knows? Maybe some of my "honorable mentions" would belong on this list. It is ever changing, with a few exceptions.

    It would be an honorable mention for me. I think all those years of seeing it over and over on TBS and the like has kinda left me burned out.

    I forgot about The Professional, to be honest. I'm not sure it would crack the top for me but it would be honorable mention for sure. It really was Gary Oldman at his crazy best.

    Good call. Long time, no see for me. I'll have to give it a watch again. One of the better shootouts I've seen on film.

    Yeah Memento and Insomnia were a couple of Nolan's first major movies. If you haven't seen Memento yet, check it out. That movie is a mind****.

    Casino is another one that should be mentioned as well. I've seen that probably just as many times as I've seen Goodfellas.
