3 Movies and Only 3 Movies

If you could choose only 3 movies from the entire history of cinema, which would you pick?  This sounds like an impossible question, but some cinephiles over at Ricochet are having a go at it.  I don't even know where to start.  Maybe I could do it if I could choose 3 movies from each genre.

Please. It is a pointless exercise. Everyone knows that they aren't actually limited to 3 movies for the rest of their lives. So the 3-movie lists will be heavily weighted to high-brow deep flicks to show your intellectual depth.

Actually put someone in solitaire with a 3-movie limit and you'll see a lot more of the Porky's franchise, Adam Sandler, and chained heat movies.

I won't speak for women on this, of course. :-)

If I had to be stuck on a desert planet with 3 movies, you bet I'm not picking some arthouse nonsense. I'll pick flicks I can watch endlessly and memorize ... kind of like what I already do with "The Princess Bride" and such.
