Without a formal vote, we've settled on a pantheon of perfect movies. Your favorite is his favorite is mom's favorite is TNT's favorite movie to air on Sunday afternoon. There's no shame in loving the crowd-pleasing pillars of Hollywood. Stars aligned -- the everyman, the everywoman, the passionate director who can paint broad strokes, a timeless story -- and a classic emerged. There's no debate: the greats are great.
Because they're great, favorites are safe zones. We're creatures of habit -- which is why we're recommending an adventure: a few risks to rent the next time you want to turn to your well-worn go-to movie. And dare we say, these recommendations may be better.
