Any engine that is still hanging from the wing in one piece at the end of my flight is my favorite engine. But if you want to go for looks the 737-200 engine you listed is cool and the GE90s on the 777 are nice.

I love the look of the JT8D-15,17 on the 737-200. It doesn't look like it could produce enough thrust for that aircraft! Seeing a four engined plane with such engines is cool, the 707 and its JT3D's gets my vote.
The big 777's with their massive GE90s on the other hand look sluggish and "hulk" like in comparison, although I can vouch for their good performance from my experience flying on them. I still think these high bypass engines are UGLY, but obviously so much more efficient and quiet.
