Gravity was an OK movie it just that I happen to know a little bit about Celestial/orbital mechanics so some of it content had me grinding my teeth together.
Kind of like seeing a movie base on say the railroads when you happen to have a background in railroading at least enough so you know when the movie people are bullshitting you.

Yes Gravity is pure Hollywood nonsense, it's already been torn apart by scientists. The director admits he had to cut corners to keep the plot going.
****SPOILER ALERT****
To get back to earth, Clooney and Bullock had to hop from one space station to another, all conveniently orbiting at exactly the same height, speed and trajectory, I never swallowed that, but the film was still fun to watch..Smile

I'm going to have to watch this. Everyone keeps saying it's good but I've never seen it.

@rosborne979,
I have yet to see a Coen brothers film that I didn't like. A Serious Man is excellent as well, underrated, too.

Lebowski is definitely a sentimental favorite. There are "better" films, for sure, but it's a down-right hoot.

@JPB,
I believe we had this thread before:
My top favourite is Fanny & Alexander (1982)
First runner up is The Sacrifice (1986)

Very hard question. I'd pick something that was free of context (I was able to watch it irrespective of circumstance). Relative to this criteria, I'd have no problem choosing from either Total Recall (2012), The Wolfman (2010), The Terminator, A.I. or The Force Awakens.

What all films have in common is the ability of no context: all are universally exciting and relevant. Each of these movies is deeply mature in its own right, and fulfilling to the soul.

'The favorite ' has to be influenced by personal circumstances but for me it was:
"Somewhere".

Runner up: "The Right Stuff"

@chai2,
Angel heart is a memorable film; maybe one of De Niro's best.

@JPB,
It is almost impossible to pick just one movie. I guess it might be a toss up between:

1991 (The Five Heartbeats)
and 2004 (The Bourne Supremacy)

"Marty" (1955) Ernest Borgnine

It has the best "feelgood' ending scene of any film I've ever seen in my 80 years of life.

@DewClaw,
I really enjoy watching "The Best Years Of Our Lives" with Dana Andrews.
Roger Ebert gave it five stars.

Marty is one of my all time favorites as well. Excellent performance from all the actors.

@Sturgis,
There was a famous line in the Marty movie, which I liked a lot too. It was a short line, and I am completely forgetting it right this minute, not even remembering whether it was she or he who said it.. but poignant.

Funny about memory..

That's an oddly obvious statement. Can you name at least ONE that you thoroughly enjoyed?
