My favorites list always changes depending on mood and it's always really hard to narrow it down on a top (whatever number) list, but Jurassic Park is always going to be at the top due to its heavy influence on me as a kid.
So besides Godzilla/kaiju films, here's a few others I could never remove from my DVD collection:

The Big Lebowski
The Thing
Re-Animator
The Holy Mountain
Suspiria
Tetsuo: The Iron Man
Taxi Driver
Once Upon A Time In America
Bronson
Alien (quadrilogy)
Naked Lunch
Battle Royale
The Lost Continent
The Land That Time Forgot/The People That Time Forgot/At The Earth's Core
Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky
Manborg
Dead Alive
Tokyo Gore Police
5 Fingers of Death
Hausu
Eraserhead
The Exorcist
Videodrome
Oldboy
I'm A Cyborg, But That's OK
Delicatessen
Perfume: the Story of a Murderer
A Bucket of Blood
Spider Baby
Evil Dead I, II and Army of Darkness
Amelie

Even The Monster Club?

Because, I mean, I love Vincent Price, John Carradine and Donald Pleasence, and I love anthology horror movies, but, really, I just can't even with that movie...
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

I'm trying to get all his good ones, his bad ones and even his weird poop like Dr. Goldfoot and His Bikini Machine (that one... :shock: Wow!)

Let me know if you can track down a copy of the sequel, Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs. As a massive Mario Bava fan, I'm very curious about that movie, even though Italian comedy does not translate for American audiences very well.

I miss this era of DC/WB animation so much. Everything about the Dini-Timm Verse was incredibly on point and Mask Of The Phantasm is exemplary of the level of quality control of that era.
