    I am looking for a good movie to rent tonight, and I needed some guidance.

    1. LOTR trilogy
    2. Ocean's Eleven Trilogy
    3. The Prestige
    4. Casino Royale
    5. Bourne Trilogy

    My top 5 change constantly, but this is what it looks like now. As a side note, V for Vendetta and The Guardian were very close.

    I've got the stereotypical list, but its true.

    In no particular order,
    In Bruges, Fight Club, Any of the Ocean's movies, Goodfellas or Casino; but not both, Scarface... I guess that's my 5. I liked Donnie Darko but I've only seen it twice so I'm still not 100% there. Other goodies are Blood Diamond (probably should have put that on my top 5), The Departed and if mindless action is what I need, the Bourne movies.

    Not in any particular order:

    Animal House
    Caddyshack
    A Few Good Men
    Goodfellas
    Planet of the Apes (all of them)

    Made my decision based on the fact that if I saw one of these on tv, I would be irresistably drawn to the couch to watch it. I would probably get yelled at for watching the same movie for the 1000th time, too.
