I suppose if you hate Woody Allen then you can s**t all over the thread. However, I would prefer responses from those that at least appreciate some of his films. I'll start:

Take the Money and Run
Annie Hall
Hannah and Her Sisters
Match Point
Midnight in Paris

Mostly old school...

ANNIE HALL (though parts of this annoy me it still has the best one-liners and most laughs overall)
LOVE AND DEATH
SLEEPER
BANANAS
MIDNIGHT IN PARIS

Not much of a fan of any of his dramas.

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

No surprise on Annie Hall. Definitely an opus.

I'm glad somebody besides me acknowledged Midnight in Paris. For all you WA fans, if you haven't seen his latest, it is a gem. Immediately after walking out of the theatre I realized it shot into my top 5. It has a charm that he hasn't shown in a film in some time.

I'm generally not a fan of his dramas either, but I thought Match Point was phenomenal.

I'm another old-school guy.

In no particular order:

Zelig
Manhattan
Sleeper
Take the Money and Run
Bananas

With a very honorable mention to two movies that are only partially his:
What's Up, Tiger Lily? and Casino Royale.

Also, if you are a fan of his one-liners, try some of his short story collections such as Without Feathers, Side Effects, or Getting Even. Very fun stuff.

I read these books multiple times.  I probably read WITHOUT FEATHERS about 6 times when I was in junior high or high school.

Me too, in HS, and I turned a buddy on to it as well. We passed a dog-eared copy of Without Feathers back and forth throughout our senior year. Ironically enough, it was in the Psychology class that we shared that we would often pass it back and forth. I just find it funny that the book is so tied in my life to a psych class, with all his talk about psychoanalysis all the time.

Oo I missed this thread.  As much as I take hits for him, and defend him, and love his work, I have hardly seen all of WOODY ALLEN's films, and there's at least a few I don't like so much.  Though I own one or two on videotape, I don't think I own a single WOODY ALLEN film on DVD, and my favorite movie is the top of my list.  Here's my five:  

HANNAH AND HER SISTERS  
CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS  
BROADWAY DANNY ROSE  
STARDUST MEMORIES  
DECONSTRUCTING HARRY
