Newest set is all feckin changed again. I have the original trilogy on VHS still, best versions because George Lucas hadn't gone back and pissed on his legacy with CGI back then

Star Wars of course.  Saw it in 1977 in theater when it first came out.  Actually it is the first movie I remember seeing.

Very tough to choose so I'd go with Shawnshank Redemption, Inception and The Godfather (all of them!)

It's impossible to dislike the Shawshank Redemption, I have never met someone who hated it, acting is just superb

Indiana Jones is Awesome.  Again I saw Raiders in theaters when it first came out.  I love James Bond.  Connery is Bond.  Craig is pretty good though.  I like the Mummy also.  The new one, yes.  Just something about it.  It is fun.

Breaker Morant
Should be made compulsory viewing by all soldiers fighting in an asymmetric war.
A good example of British hypocrisy where "orders" are not really orders.
Shows the rather complex & conflicting relationship Australia to Great Britain

There are other & better films, but Breaker Morant is one of the ones that stick in my memory
