Not horror but Rebel without a Cause is one of my favs
1950s movie when Hollywood was good and not just superhero movies and unoriginal material (remakes sequels etc)
James Dean was an amazing actor. Just seeing how he carries himself in the film is a study in "masculinity" itself (more of the badboy rebel thing vs like a James Bond smooth thing)
I liked it more than A Streetcar Named Desire or whatever Marlon Brandos breakout film was (the two being symbols of masculinity at the time). Though that film is amazing for seeing how crazy women can be (female lead was really good and won an Oscar for her performance). Also the dichotomy between Brando and the "beta" in the film is really good too (beta won an Oscar as well)
Go 2001 - Japanese film about a Korean Japanese who faces adversity cuz of discrimination etc. Another teenage angst type film but hits every genre/emotion, gives insight into discrimination and growing up as a minority in Japan, struggling with different identities, and I liked how the film concluded
Ode to my Father 2014.Korean film that basically depicts modern Korean history through the life of a guy who went through Korean War etc. Really good but means more to me cuz Im Korean
A Serbian Film. Not a fav necessarily but super fucked up for people who like crazy shit. Would never be shown in USA probably

I love Snatch. Just an amazing cast and fun dialog. Guy Ritchie's best movie. So many good cliches they keep playing on over and over like the "sneaky fucking Russians".
Back in the day I also fell in love with Natural Born Killers after accidentally picking it to see in the theaters while on LSD. That was a trip! I thought the movie was actually over when they roll the credits 20 minutes in and I started yelling "WTF I want my money back!"
Lord of the Rings was fucking amazing. Fantasy and epic adventure was realistically captured for the first time ever in a movie. Incredible music and pacing. I'll agree with the Matrix as mentioned early, for similar reasons.
The Thing is absolutely awesome. Well ahead of its time and as gripping as it gets!
A Matter of Life and Death (1946) might be my all time favourite. An army pilot during WW2 cheats death and goes to court in the afterlife to argue his case enlisting the help from a choice from history's greatest thinkers.
I'm a movie geek (the username is a clue to one of my favorite, cool to see Carpenter fans here too), it's hard for me to pick a favorite, I usually divide my rankings per years or genre.
But, some are definitely above the rest :
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
It is the Spaghetti Western experience, the score, the direction, the actors, it is beautiful and magnificent and epic.
They don't do movies like that anymore.
Ennio Morricone is just, is just legendary.
Star Wars : The Empire Strikes Back
While Star Wars A New Hope changed cinema forever, it was ESB that propulsed Star Wars in a whole new realm of quality, every episode was judged with this one in mind.
Irvin Kershner elevated Star Wars to its best. I could watch it till the end of my days and not be bored with it.
The story every underdog out there who wants to succeed, a perfect combination of score, story and direction.
The Seven Samurai
Akira Kurosawa at his best, this movie has so much influence in today cinema, it's mad, his whole filmography is mad.
I hesitated with half of Tarantino filmography for this one, but this movie has the best dialogue of them all (even though, Hans Landa the Nazi Colonel from Inglorious Bastards is the best character he ever wrote, that intro is just pure tension)
Fuck, I'm goin' to stop here, cause I could go on and on, Back To The Future, Inception, Rain Man, The Dark Knight, Snatch, Lord Of The Rings, Terminator 2, Forrest Gump, Casino Royale, The Truman Show, Fight Club, American History X, Apocalypse Now, Rambo, Life Is Beautiful, The Thing, Escape From New York, The Last Samurai (even though it's inaccurate as hell), Gladiator (same comment), etc etc and so many fucking more.
Revolver (with Jason Statham). Maybe not my favorite, but probably the most useful film I have ever watched. It's about the ego. Directed by Guy Ritchie, same dude that did Snatch, also a stellar film.
2001 A Space Odyssey, The Graduate, Heat, Fast and Furious.
I think the worst film I've ever seen is Citizen Kane.

Huge film lover here
-Pulp Fiction (1994). None linear crime film, Tarantinos masterpiece JUST WATCH IT.
-2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). A space epic movie directed by Stanley Kubrick (the GOAT of filmmakers)
-The Way of the Dragon (1972). Bruce Lee kicking ass in Rome, he kicks Chuck Norris ass in this movie
-American Psycho (2000). Christian Bale acting Psycho, 'Do you like Huey Lewis and the News?'
Underrated films IMO
-Dolemite (1975). A kung fu fighting pimp has to clear his name from the feds, (must watch with friends its so bad its good)
-Day of the Dead (1985). George A. Romero's third film in his dead trilogy has scientist and marines surviving in a underground bunker
-Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982). The ultimate 80's highschool teen movie, its awesome

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
