Private Ryan and Blackhawk Down make my list as well.
It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

And Doctor Zhivago is a classic, done by a master (David Lean). Stellar acting by Omar Sharif. Interesting in how some films can create such a poignant character of the landscape, the sweep of time, and so on. Zhivago has that and more.

I was asked this question about a week ago and had a hard time coming up with just one. I finally said:
If you think The Day the Earth Stood Still is good you should read the original short story. Here is a link to the full text of Farewell to the Master by Harry Bates

I guess it qualifies as a "movie" but my all time favorite is the HBO series "Band of Brothers".
Actual movie favorites are:
The Great Raid
Saving Private Ryan

One of my all time favorites is "Dr Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” great spoof of the movie “Failsafe” another great movie. “Airplane” is another favorite also, having watched it several times it seems I find something new in the background each time.

How is Red Dawn not up here yet?

LOL Thanks Dnowell
I know what everyone will say but I love Red Dawn.
Saving Private Ryan
Some people I know couldn't stand Sahara for various reasons. I thought it was just awesome due to Steve Zahn. Weapons handling in that movie is pretty good, too!!

Casa Blanca-Has the best dialogue in any movie I've ever seen. The humor is incredibly understated, but if you're paying attention it is absolutely hilarous
The original 3:10 to Yuma. If it had come out before High Noon, noone would talk about High Noon.
Sands of Iwa Jima
