Back to the Future!
Jurassic Park is my favorite because it's the first film I can remember my whole family and me getting excited about and having to go see together.
The Fast and the Furious
Field of Dreams
Jurassic Park the music...gets me every time and the scary dinos!
Are we there yet? Back to the Future.

et by far
Apollo 13 - It's a true story!
All Quiet On The Western Front ... still such a powerful statement about war and life! See it.
The Sting...It's just one of the best written, best acted, best made movies ever!
Back to the Future, no question.
The Bourne Identity is one of my favorites!
I have to go with E.T, it's such a classic!
Have to say the Bourne Identity. A classic for any spy action movie buff.
The dinos in Jurassic Park were so life-like and so that's why Jurassic Park is my favorite movie.
Eesh, tough call... I'd say either Jurassic Park or Back to the Future.
