While I don't have one favorite movie, and my lists of favorites is long and varied (Hence my handle here), what I usually consider to be my top 3 favorite movies are 'The Fifth Element,' 'The Mask of Zorro,' and 'Sleepy Hollow.'
For favorite shows, there are tons. I loved 'Smallville' and watched it religiously when it was on. I've also been a big fan of shows like 'Mystery Science Theater 3000,' 'Once Upon a Time,' 'Grimm,' 'Arrow,' and 'The Flash.' Two shows that I currently am devoted to are 'Izombie' and 'Black Lightning.'
I have loads of favorite actors, but a few that I particularly like watching are Johnny Depp, Tim Curry (Best villain actor in history), Geoffrey Rush (I find it positively criminal that he has so far only won one Oscar, he deserved Best Supporting Actor for 'The King's Speech'), Bruce Campbell, and Alan Tudyk.

If I had to pick on it would be Excaliber
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

La Revolution francaise, from 1989, the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution, has surely got to be the very best movie ever made in the history of cinema, but for some reason the movie didn't do well.

Waterloo, from 1970, nothing beats watching the British beat somebody excepting of course us.

Lawrence of Arabia, from 1962.

Just about every and all versions of War and Peace, although the various BBC productions (there's been many) stand out.  The 1972 BBC version, part 11, where Napoleon has a conference with the chief of his secret service concerning a proposed invasion of Russia, has surely got to be one of the most gripping scenes in cinemadom.

Napoleon, from 2002, apparently a continuation of La Revolution francaise.

Many films.  Comedy, perhaps "Blazing Saddles".  It depends on my mood.  Lots of Hitchcock movies & oldies that are fantastic.

TV - Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Sopranos.  To start with.
