I am still deciding the order

LOTR Trilogy (I like Fellowship the best)
Star Wars Trilogy (Empire is the best)

and below those are
Back to the Future Trilogy
Indiana Jones Trilogy
American Graffiti

I am surprised no one else has mentioned Dead Poets Society. I liked that one as well.

A small aside please!! In the movie " The Bourne Identity " there is a car chase scene through the streets of Paris as Matt Damon eludes the police driving a Mini Cooper. I have been trying to find out about the music played during the chase. Do any of you movie watchers know the name of the music and the artists? The same music is played during the wild disco gunfight scene of " Collateral ". Thank You!

3) Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
4) Festen
5) Underground

There are many, many more of course, like "Being There", the Godfather trilogy, The Man Who Wasn't There, Kafka, Fargo, A Clockwork Orange, Brazil, E.T., High and Low, etc, etc. There are just too many, fortunately

Pretty much all of my favourite films have been listed here already. So I won't bother posting them again. I just wanted to make special mention to Infernal Affairs I & II. Picked them up in the video store about 6 months back and in short I really enjoyed them. IMO well worth watching.

PS not in English but subtitled

It is "Ready Steady Go" by Paul Oakenfold

The version from Collateral is the Korean mix. It is on the Collateral soundtrack which has some other good music as well. You can preview the songs on Amazon.
