Inspired by the list in World Magazine, I decided to start my own list of favorite movies and add to it periodically.  So these are some of our favorites:
 
(love stories)
The Princess Bride
Ever After
Life is Beautiful
Sense and Sensibility
 
The Passion of the Christ by Mel Gibson
Braveheart-Mel Gibson
Gladiator
The Patriot-Mel Gibson
Glory - Civil War movie
The Count of Monte Cristo-.."You were right priest, you were right. What was used for vengenance will now be used for good."  "God will give me justice."
Powerful themes of redemption, loyalty, betrayal, mentoring of the young man by the older priest,(God believes in you).  Definitely a top favorite!
The Narnia Chronicles (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader)  
The Lord of the Rings trilogy
Raiders of the Lost Ark
 
(Uplifting and inspiring)
Courageous- on fatherhood
Fireproof- on marriage
Facing the Giants- on trials
Seabiscuit (true racehorse story)

Babette's Feast
The Rookie
Tender Mercies
Secondhand Lions
The Family Man
Love Comes Softly
Little Women
 
(Comedy)
Groundhog Day
The Man Who Knew Too Little
 
Then, there's the little known, but very powerful true story of a mother's love and a son's revenge in war-ravaged Greece, 1948:
"ELENI" (Kate Nelligan and John Malkovich)

Favorite old TV shows:
"Have Gun Will Travel" - Richard Boone
"Combat" - Vic Morrow

"Family Man" is my ultimate favorite.  I could watch it....over and over and over again.
