Stand By Me would be my favorite. It's infinitely watchable and timeless. The Dead Zone would come in next.

Yeah I took Stand by me as well, It had a great cast of actors just starting to make an impact in the business & I'm a big fan of Rob Reiner. Runner-up would be Cujo, mostly for Dee Wallace.

Cujo for me. My only gripe is that the ending from the book wasn't retained in the film. I loved reading these books as a kid and coming across the references to events from other stories. Anyone know if we'll ever see a release of the extended cut of Needful Things? I've never seen it but hear it's much better than the theatrical cut.

Hopefully it will find it's way on to blu-ray one day.

Stand by Me - very easy choice for me, as I love the short story/novella and the film does it great justice.

Stand By Me is an all time top 5 film for me, so it's an easy choice.

Cujo it is. Stand by Me is good and all, but I'm leaning towards horror.

Earlier this summer, I had to attend one of those corporate retreat things. One exercise was an interview where specific questions were asked. One was if you could only eat one food the rest of your life, what would it be. Of course, I answered "Cherry Pez".
