    Absolutely Schindler's List - it dared to go places few other movies did - a brutal, realistic depiction of the Holocaust that people needed to see. Plus, it's Liam Neeson at his best!

    I really can't decide between Jaws, E.T., Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, or To kill a mockingbird. They are all classics that I watch over and over again. If only universal made classics like these today.

    Jurassic Park. That movie is my entire childhood. I watched it at least once a week when I was little and I still love it and watch it often! I was obsessed with dinosaurs and to see them brought to life in that movie was amazing to me!

    Jurassic Park is easily my favorite movie EVER, not just from the list. Jurassic Park was basically the foundation of my childhood. It was one of the first movies I have ever seen and it completely blew my mind. My parents put the VHS in almost every night and I had to rewind it every morning. Nothing has ever been quite as spectacular as Jurassic Park.
