A partial list of my favorite movies, ones I feel a sense of "ownership" about:

Ladyhawke, Willow, The Princess Bride, Clue, Miss Congeniality, Stargate, National Treasure, Conspiracy Theory, History of the World (Pt 1), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Ocean's Eleven (remake) ...

Movies like Major League, Short Circuit, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, The Matrix (I loved the first movie and hated the sequels), Independence Day and the Lord of the Rings movies get close to this, but I don't feel the same way about them. The first list are sort of like children - you know they're flawed, but you love them anyway.
