Angel Heart, starring Mickey Roarke, Robert De Niro and Lisa Bonet.

Bizarre and compelling story.

A tricky question as I have a few. But to narrow it down to one, I'd say Gladiator. But I haven't seen The Dark Knight yet so I may change my mind next week.

Um, three guesses, and you need to get all three right to get the point.

So, moving down on the list (meaning things I watch when I'm not watching LotR):

The Princess Bride
Star Wars (especially Return of the Jedi)
Indiana Jones
Mama Mia
Music and Lyrics
Any Monty Python

I may think of others, but these are the ones that come to mind first.

Toss up between Paths of Glory and The Mission.

The latter has the most beautiful soundtrack I've ever heard.

Pride and Prejudice I could watch any day, any time, and many times.

Followed with:
The Princess Bride
Ever After
28 Days Later

Repo!The Genetic Opera is starting to get high on my list though.

I just finished watching Million Dollar Baby with Hilary Swank, Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman.

Oh My Gawd.
It definitely deserved the zillion or so Oscars and nominations it received.

Dittos on many of those mentioned, and a few of my own:

Horror: Kairo (Pulse) by Kiyoshi Kurosawa.
SF: Blade Runner.
War: a tie between Tears of the Sun and Kenneth Branaugh's Henry V.
Comedy: the Salkind's 1973 version of The Three Musketeers.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy is outstanding, but I definitely favor "The Fellowship of the Ring" above the other two. And lately I think I could watch The Dark Knight ten times a day and not get tired of it.

Hmmmm....

I wouldn't be able to call myself a dancer if I didn't say Dirty Dancing
Ever After
Titanic
The Notebook
The Sound of Music

Yup, I'm a hopelessly romantic girly girl. Deal with it.
