The perfect gangster movie- Scarface. I watched Scarface for a whole month straight once and I still enjoy it.

Cant believe no one has mentioned Back To The Future yet. I can easily sit through Parts I-III

Plan 9 From Outer Space is a perfect movie in its own peculiar way  Drink
EDIT: And 'In Bruges' was a perfect movie.

I agree with LAWRENCE of ARABIA.
Also....
.The TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE-One of those rare birds-a horror film that is still unnerving after multiple veiwings.
.NIGHT of the LIVING DEAD (1968)-Romero took INVISABLE INVADERS and The LAST MAN ON EARTH-added B stock music-and made ground breaking  a classic that has been endlessly ripped off to this day.
.I agree with Pillow on PLAN 9 from OUTER SPACE-a messterpiece of inane,insane genuis.

Y'know if I had to guess which movie I have seen the most times from beginning to end, it would probably be NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, which is landmark.  That movie still spooks me, and I love it.  It's a "bad movie" or make that: BAD MOVIE , but also effective!!  And it's strange mix yields a unique film as you stated, "copied" (over n over n over novernover n).

The TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE is relentless and for that kind of intense horror I need to be prepared, as in "set".  It falls short of perfection for precisely the reason you cite: it's still "unnerving".  It is a masterpiece that many people apparently imagine is this or that, the lack of genuine recollection is fascinating to me.  I like some TOBE HOOPER movies.  A lot.

Brick (2005) is a good mixture of Neo-Film noir with Teen Film, but is just the perfect movie for an experience that is hard to explain in detail, you just got to see it to understand what I'm trying to say.

You know, I've heard about this movie many times, but for whatever reason, I've never seen it. I'm surprised that I haven't. I'm going to have to remedy that.

MANHUNTER is good, but SILENCE OF THE LAMBS is superior.  MANHUNTER was remade a few years ago with the title taken from THOMAS HARRIS' novel: RED DRAGONMANHUNTER and SILENCE OF THE LAMBS are faithful to the books... which are terrific reads, and being literature, do have other dimensions barely alluded to in the movies.  I've not seen the RED DRAGON remake.

I knew that Manhunter was based on Red Dragon. I've read Thomas Harris' Hannibal books except for Red Dragon. I thought the final one, Hannibal was a very good book but the movie was just horrid. The Silence of the Lambs was indeed very true to the book in both story detail and I think got the feel right, thanks in no small part to Jonathan Demme.

^If you haven't seen Manhunter yet just watch any episode of CSI with William Petersen in it...it's almost the same thing  Twirling  All kidding aside I like both films, but I really feel Silence Of The Lambs is the better of the two.

I thought HANNIBAL the movie was... annoying.  I haven't read that book.  SILENCE does not allude so much to the "Pascal Lamb" and "Golgotha after the deposition" leaving out a dimension in the book, but it holds up well.  Red Dragon was a terrific novel, possibly superior to the book Silence of the Lambs

I'd also have to say GROUNDHOG DAY

 Thumbup I will second that. It's rare to find somebody who doesn't at least like it a little bit.

I have a friend from high school who claim to be that rare person, though she admits she found some of the jokes funny.

Perfect movie?  Hmm... hard to say.  The movie that comes closet to being perfect for me is Dick Tracy.  Just everything about the film to me is perfect, with acting being the possible exception.  I love this film.

Raiders of the Lost Ark and Paprika also feel like perfect films to me.  Outside of the insanity of Paprika and some nitpicks with Raiders, I can't think of anything I could complain about with these two films.  I could say Perfect Blue, but I need to see it a couple of more times.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
