    If you meant the first one, I love it! Watched it last night on Starz or something and my wife had never seen it (didn't like it). I was pretty young when I saw it for the first time, it blew my little mind.

    The sound choices (effects and lack of score) are so unique and work so well on the creep factor. Also I realized last night how good of an actor the dad is during the scene after he brings the girl back to the house and he's searching in his head for a reason to beat on Leatherface.

    I have such a tough time picking my favorite movie(s), but The Jerk is what I usually say when someone asks.

    I forgot The Jerk. That might not be top ten for me, but it's close.

    The Master is a bold choice. It is something that has become even better over the years. The way it portrays violence (animalistic, uncoordinated, quick and full of rage) is something that sticks in the head. Too many people became hung up on the "it's the Scientology movie" angle and have not given it a proper analysis.

    This is very hard

    Dazed and Confused
    True Romance
    Boogie Nights
    The Master
    Goodfellas
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    Wet Hot American Summer

    After that, I don't really know. There's films that I could watch endlessly and have memorized but know they aren't "better" than other films that I've only seen once or twice yet have left a huge impact on my viewing experience.
