The Video Shelf Challenge - Rick returns the gauntlet!

Hey Everybody, Rick here, returning Cole's challenge by listing my 100 films for the Video Shelf.  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, HD-DVD) that we would watch daily if we could.

Here was Cole's initial challenge: 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.

Rick's Addendum: The ones that I denote with a * are what I call guilty pleasure films. Oh, and yes, I am going with the movies in my collection exclusively. These films are in absolutely no particular order because were that the case, I have Raiders of the Lost Ark in the number one spot no contest.
