The Video Shelf Challenge - JediCole

Hello Geekdom!
JediCole here with a little something I like to call the Video Shelf Challenge. Video Shelf because that is the source of the list that follows and Challenge because I am challenging my co-hosts and our website contributors to share a similar list. And that list is...the top 100 movies each of us has on video (VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray) that we would watch daily if we could.
What prompted this was reflecting on how my friend Steve used to marvel at mine and Mrs. JediCole's video collection. It was the diversity of taste that it reflected that had him in such a state. How could the same people have both Reversal of Fortune and Pee Wee's Big Adventure on the same shelves?! 2001: A Space Odessey and Henry V sharing space with the likes of Amazon Women on the Moon and Mallrats was just too much for him to fathom. It occured to me that e say a lot about ourselves by the movies that we love enough to own and watch again and again. While our video collection is roughly twice the titles listed below (if you count strictly movies) I am limiting the list to my personal 100 favorites. So you may notice some film series are not complete.
For my colleagues here are the rules: List 100 movies that you love to watch again and again...movies only, not television shows. By movies I mean a film that had a theatrical release. I know you all have plenty in mind. You don't necessarily have to own a copy on home video media for it to qualify. My list is in no particular order because it gets terribly tricky to work out favorites. I recommend this technique as it saves a lot of time. Typing out 100 titles is time consuming enough.

So now you can behold...JediCole's 100 Favorites from the video shelves:
