The Godfather comes to mind as one of my picks.
The scene with Marlon Brando sitting in the garden while his grandson plays around him reminds me so so much of what it was like for me when I was young and my Italian grandfather was in his garden.

Add to my list:

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - I've read most of the books and the movie was done quite well.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not - Angelique, a young student, is in love with a married doctor. We see her attempts to make him leave his pregnant wife, but he does not appear for meetings or finally the booked journey to Florence. Then the movie is turned back to the beginning, and the view changes: We are now following the view of the doctor instead of Angeliques. And things look quite different now...

Mississippi Masala - An Indian family is expelled from Uganda when Idi Amin takes power. They move to Mississippi and time passes. The Indian daughter falls in love with a black man, and the respective families have to come to terms with it.

Maria Full of Grace - A pregnant Colombian teenager becomes a drug mule to make some desperately needed money for her family.

Real Women Have Curves - This is the story of Ana, a first generation Mexican-American teenager on the verge of becoming a woman.

Well here is mine:

Harry Potter (all of them)
Edward Scissorhands
Willy Wonka
Gilbert Grape
Benny and Joon
The mothman proficies (which is based in WV where I live)
Silence of the Lamb
Pretty Woman
Sweet Home Alabama
One more which is old and I don't even know if it was a popular movie in its time. Sooner or Later with Rex Smith, he sings in it You take my breath away.

I like just about any movie that has Johnny Depp, Richard Gere, Aidan Quinn, and Reese Witherspoon in it.

Mine are:
1. Shirley Valentine - I love to listen to it while I clean!
2. Educating Rita
3. Gone with the Wind
4. The Shawshank Redemption
5. Almost anything with Kiefer Sutherland (because I love his voice and he's not bad to look at). So Flatliners, Lost Boys, Young Guns, etc.
6. Almost anything with Bryan Brown - just love him. I saw Tai Pan five times and it wasn't that great of a movie, but he's a great actor (and what a voice).
