It's Someone's Favorite Movie

Members Represented: 3,188

It's simple: Post your #1 ever (no runners-up or ties please) in the comments and I'll add it if it’s not already listed. Please share your story about why it's your choice too. I think #1s usually go beyond saying the acting, writing, visuals, music, etc, are perfect. It's deeply personal. Let us know when you saw it, your first reaction, how many times you've seen it, when you made it your #1, and so on. 

If you're the type to separate best and favorite, go for the latter. Quick tip for those who ask: the best way to look to see if a movie is here already is to search the list by year. Please do…
