Some good movies here...
I have a top 5 that never really fluctuates, getting it down to three is REALLY fracking hard, so consider it the top 3 with 66.7 % more awesome.
-The Shawshank Redemption
- The Lord of the Rings series [ although, it should be noted that Tolkien intended for the trilogy to be published as a single work, his publisher refused citing better sales and lower production costs if it were sold in three volumes. probably a good call, but it's not wrong to call it "The Lord of the Rings" and mean the whole thing ]
- The Princess Bride
honorable mentions: Once Upon a Time in the West, The Matrix sequence(3films + animatrix + enter the matrix), Bring It On(it makes me smile), Tombstone, Kenneth Branagh's Henry V, The Prestige, and The Commitments [ which has a kickbutt soundtrack.]
