But your conscience permits goonies? They have therapists for things like these.

i realize that it's no "godfather" but it reminds me of the good ol' days.
(and yes, i realize i do need a therapist- not because of my movie choice but because of the man i am dating :D )

I went with Ghostbusters over the Godfather. I think the Godfather is the superior picture, but if I was flipping channels and the two movies were on there's really no question which movie I would more likely stop on.

Coco lend me The G Point with Ginger Lynn, and it's a close second behind the Godfather.

Damn this was tough. In the end, I went with Groundhog Day. I think both Godfather and then Godfather II are probably the best movies of the bunch, but, like knarf, if we're picking favourite, for me it's definitely Groundhog Day, with Galaxy Quest and The Great Escape sharing second place.

Some other movies of the ones listed I really like: Ghostbusters, Glengarry Glen Ross, Goodfellas, The Graduate, Gladiator, Grosse Pointe Blank.

Sentimentality rules here...So many to pick from

Have to go with Glory. Simply my favourite movie from the bunch, but Grosse Pointe Blank runs it close.
