Good Will Hunting
The Big Lebowski
Girl, Interrupted
Dirty Dancing
Trainspotting

Loads more, but those are the ones I thought of first.

Actually, I never really thought about why I liked it until I saw your post asking me why. I'm thinking about it now and I'll try my best to explain.

What I liked about it was that it exposed people who on the outside appeared to be something that they weren't. Lester and Carolyn seemed to have a perfect marriage, but in reality could not be more miserable with each other. Carolyn's off having an affair with her real estate rival, while Lester is lusting after his daughter's friend. The rest of the world doesn't see this though. They see a perfect couple. Same with Colonel Fitz. He projects this tough guy image and makes many homophobic comments. It's all just an act to hide that he's a homosexual. Angela makes up all of these lies about herself to make her seem more *ahem* experienced, even though she's a virgin. I think the message of this movie is that nothing is ever what it seems to be. As the tagline says, Look Closer.

I don't know if you are "missing something" as you say. Some people just have different tastes. But maybe you'll watch it again and find that you like it.

My list needs to be broken down by genre. I could never pick just one or two movies and consider them the greatest. There is something special about all of the best.
Best Gangster Movies:
5. Boys In The Hood
4. Goodfellas
3. Once Upon A Time In America
1.The Godfather I & II (tied).
These must be seen together for the greatest impact, but both stand independently of the other.
Honorable Mention: The Untouchables.

I can't help it. My favorite movie is Sleepless in Seattle. Watching it just makes me feel good.

And I also love The Sixth Sense, A.I., Rear Window (original version), The Shawshank Redemption and Star Wars(all of them)

1. Original Star Wars Trilogy
2. Indiana Jones Trilogy
3. Lord Of The Rings Trilogy

Although LOTR could be #2 also. Out of these 9 movies Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom is my least favorite. But I like Raiders Of The Lost Ark and The Last Crusade better than any of the LOTR movies. So its kind of a toss up!

Honorable mention would be Almost Famous. The unedited version, love that movie.

My favorite B movie that could be regarded as crap would be: Big Trouble In Little China. I always watch it if I see its on TV, dont know why!

Probably Lord of the Rings trilogy, I don't think any films made me feel so engrossed with their world.

Schindler's List left an enormous impact on me, although I can't say it's a film I'd want to watch often.
