I have a few.. Lord of the Rings movies, particularly Return of the King
and recently I do believe Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind has become a favorite. Shawshank Redemption is one of those movies that I can watch over and over again. So those are mine... Now tell me yours dammit!

    My favorite movie is "Prison Break", very classic, very thrill, very romantic, very exciting tv shows. I love to watch it every time if I have leisure time.

    Of course, the "Lord of the Rings" and "Return of the king" are also very popular in movie history. Mass tv funs are like to enjoy them during spare time.

    Thanks, Raissa ! Have a nice day !

      I made my husband watch Evil Dead on our first date, and he still married me, LOL.

      My favourite movie of all time is the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Love Tim Curry in suspenders.

      MAYBE?! Evil Dead is the reason God allowed such a thing as motion pictures.

      And the first Matrix, Ironman, Dune (David Lynch version).

      AND God invented the web internets to punish television producers for screwing up Twin Peaks. Personally, I would have chosen a very slow smoking process . . .

    If people ask my favourite food, or song or TV show I have to think about it - and am never 100% happy with my choice. I have a definite favourite movie though and suggest anyone who hasn't seen it (AND can handle sub-titles) go watch it ASAP:

    City of God - Beautifully shot, incredible acting - heart wrenching.

    Good grief, to try to pick your favorite movie of all time is like trying to pick
    the most beautiful woman who ever walked the planet. I mean, get real.

    I wouldn't even begin to try to pick my favorite out of respect to all those
    great movies that I love that I'd end up slighting.

    Here's a short list of movies that I like a lot. Let's leave it at that.

    Sci Fi

    War Of The Worlds (original)
    Forbidden Planet
    The Day The Earth Stood Still (Original)
    Gorgo
    The Incredible Shrinking Man

    Comedy

    The Time Of Their Lives
    It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World
    Arsenic And Old Lace

    Drama

    It's A Wonderful Life
    Dog Day Afternoon
    Mrs Miniver
    Sgt York
    Dead Poets Society
    Rocky
    Scrooge (Alistair Sim)
    One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
    To Kill A Mockingbird

    Musicals

    Wizard Of Oz
    Sound Of Music
    Mary Poppins
    My Fair Lady
    Showboat (Paul Robeson)

    Adventure

    Raiders Of The Lost Ark
    Lord Of The Rings (All 3)
    The Dirty Dozen

    I'll stop there. I've already left out about 100 incredible movies that I'm
    going to kick myself for.

    Don't even try to have me pick one of those as a favorite. I'd sooner
    stand in front of a firing squad.

    There have been so many amazing movies in cinema history that it's
    almost mind boggling how much talent has come and gone in this world
    in just 82 years. (The Jazz Singer - 1927) Yes, I know, it wasn't really
    the first movie ever made but it's the first talkie (though not completely
    as some parts were dubbed in later. Long story, don't ask) Charlie Chaplin
    was doing so hilarious short silent films between 1914 and 1918 like
    "The Rink", "The Cure", "One AM" and others. I remember watching them
    on channel 13 (public TV) when I was a kid about 40 years ago.

    What's your favorite movie ever?

    You've got to be kidding me.

      Sgt York and To Hell & Back, both about real American Heroes.

      Too many great movies to really pick but thanks for the stroll down memory lane.

      I got several favourite movies.

      I like movies where you at first dont know what is happening, and at the end you get a wow effect .

      Example Lucky Number Slevin with Bruce Willis
      I recommend this movie to everyone who didnt watch it yet.

      Else I like The Departed (I like such movies) and I like al pacino movies. I watched all of his movies and liked 90 %

      So my favourite movies are (if you didn't watch them, do it, I don't watch boring movies):

      Lucky Number Slevin, The Departed, Carlito's Way, The Godfather, ...

    Most silent films circa 1917 on up

    Repo Man and Rock & Roll Highschool - for the music
    Sid & Nancy
    Racing With the Moon
    X-Files
    Twin Peaks

    I have to ask, how many of you that list Lord Of The Rings (any of the three,or all three) have also read the books?

    While they may be decent movies, they did the books an injustice left and right.

    Peter Jackson had a great opportunity in his grasp and he let it slip through his fingers, as far as being faithful to the story.

    Other than that, they are an enjoyable watch.

      I read all the books.

      The books were excellent.

      The movies were excellent.

      Considering what they had to work with, I think Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, and Phillipa Boyens did quite well. For example, the books are kind of cut in half. Where half the book follows one part of the Fellowship, and then the second half follows another. That just wouldn't work in a movie.

      There were some major things that were left out, changed, or otherwise "enhanced", but that doesn't make them bad movies, for movies.

      If the books had never been writeen, but the movies were...they would be awesome movies.

      So, I simply enjoy the books for what they are, and enjoy the movies for what they are. Epic story telling that has to fit the constraints of the medium in which they are delivered.

      Also, the screenwriters, and many of the cast and crew, are HUGE fans of Tolkien and did not want to do it a disservice.

      All the best,
      Michael

  • My favorite movie is Twilight! I thought it was totally overrated until I watched it and fell in love with it! I can't wait for New Moon to come out in November - I'm reading the book now! So, I'm spoiling it a bit, but there are always differences between the book and the movie!

      Yes, I agree with KimW. Although I do love The Lord of the Rings movies and I have the collection (extended versions), the movies are not as good as the books. I must have read the books a least a dozen times each. I have almost every Tolkien book.

      Other movies I love:
      Titanic, Gone With The Wind, The Rose, Ben-Hur, Star Wars (Episode IV), Raiders of the Lost Ark, Chronicles of Narnia, The Way We Were, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Braveheart, Mad Max, and many more...

    Like most, I can't pick just one, or 10, or 100. So many movies are great in their own way.

    Gotta give kudos to Cinema Paradiso. Also have to mention Brazil. Saw that at a midnight showing on the night I graduated from High School, and it blew my mind. It was the first movie I saw that made me think motion pictures could in fact, be an art form.

    Of course I have watched Captain Ron about a thousand times, and will probably see it another thousand before I'm through.

      Another vote for LOTR(yes I've read the books), specially the Two Towers, with Viggo Mortensen as an added bonus.
      Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, two love stories, beautiful.
      Moulin Rouge! Gloriously over the top.
      Last of the Mohicans, brilliant scenery and music.
      Calamity Jane, good wholesome fun plus Howard Keels' voice.
      The Empire Strikes Back, Lucas before it all went horribly wrong.
      West Side Story, superb music and choreography.

    I'm a total sucker for happy endings and fairy tale romances. My absolute favorite movie of all time would be Ever After, which is that whimsical take on the Cinderella story where Drew Barrymore Starred in, saw it like 40 times i think. Next would have to be My Best Friends Wedding, I loved Julia Roberts in that movie!

    This is such an easy question for me! My all-time favorite movie by far is Apollo 13.

    I was 6-years-old when the first satellite was put into orbit and had just graduated from High School a month or so before Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the Moon. In other words, I literally grew up with the space program.

    Apollo 13 was especially of interest to me because I remember when it was actually happening and everyone said that the astronauts were sure to die. They didn't have enough oxygen to make it back. Their air cleaning system was broken and poisoning their air. The spacecraft had no power for heat so they nearly froze to death! The engine that they would need to return them to Earth had not been designed to do that!

    Then the amazing guys at NASA put their skills to work and brought them back alive anyway. That story and movie were both simply unbelievable, yet true!

    In no particular order;

    - The Lord Of The Rings (the whole lot - extended versions - Technical note: TLOTR is not a trilogy, it is one story. The Godfather and The Omen are trilogies. So is the Bourne series until they make another one. And yes, I first read TLOTR back in 1978, and have read it many times since then, a few of those after the movies came out.)

    - The above mentioned Bourne Trilogy

    - Good Will Hunting

    - Citizen Kane - years ahead of it's time

    - War Of The Worlds (the original - still the only film to give me nightmares when I first saw it at 9 or 10 yo)

    - One Flew Over The Cockoos Nest - Nicholson at his best

    - On The Waterfront - Brando at his best

    - Monty Python And The Holy Grail - comedy at its best, "We've found a witch, may we burn her" - classic stuff

    - Airplane (would be the funniest film ever if not for MP&THGrail: Trivia fans please note this film and its sequel were called "Flying High" in Australia for some reason)

    - Apocalypse Now - "Some day this war's gonna end. Sigh.", "I love the smell of napalm in the morning", "Inside the heart of every man there is a conflict between good and evil, and good does not always win.", "Terminate. With extreme prejudice".
    Some of the most memorable lines ever committed to film. And who can listen to Wagner's "The Ride Of The Valkyrie" without thinking of helicopters after this film came out.

    - Schindlers List - Lest we forget

    - The Sexy Beast - Ben Kingsley is nothing short of brilliant in this, whether you like the movie or not, you WILL be blown away by his performance.

    - Sleuth - A murder whodunnit with only 2 suspects played by Michael Caine and Larry Olivier. In fact they are the only two characters in the film. Despite this you will be kept guessing right up until the end which one of them committed the murder. Both give brilliant performances as well.

    - The Castle - a true family values flick with a bit of David v Goliath thrown in. Best Aussiie film ever.

    - Thirteen Days - for me this is more of a personal film as I was actually born on the 14th day, or if you like the day after the Cuban Missile Crisis ended. If things had not gone the way they did, I could have been born on the day the world ended. There's a cheery thought. After that we need some light relief, so...

    - When Harry Met Sally - the only romantic comedy worth watching

    - Team America - the third funniest film ever. "Have you ever seen a grown man eat his own head", It also has the best view of politics ever by the guy in the bar, "See son, there are three types of people in the world, d---s, p-----s and a------s". Hilarious.

    Kill Bill Vol 1. - Fabulous

    River Dogs - great ending

    and oh plenty more but I'll end it here. The thing is a movie can be crap for 3/4s of the duration BUT if the ending is great, I will consider it a well made movie. Vice versa.

    I love the Pianist and had to buy a copy after seeing it. I am a total Adrian Brody fan after that.

    I always answer 'Wuthering Heights' any version when asked this question but tonight I watched 'Vertigo' on Turner Classics for probably the 10th time (also have the video) and I have to say that it still totally enthralls me. It is one of Hitchcock's finest movies ever IMHO -- and that is saying a lot since they are all so good.

    Also 'The Green Mile' (Stephen King) with Tom Hanks is a really fine movie that I watch every time I see it on cable. I would like to buy the video. It is a really beautiful but sad horror movie.

    21, Forest Gump, Hitchcock. I rarely watch movies (I don't go out and see the new ones when they come out in theaters, usually it's us ordering one on demand or at a friend's house), but I've seen some really good ones. Problem is, I forget about them lol. The three I mentioned are some of my favs though.

    Oh man, I just remembered one that was absolutely amazing. Title... title... title... I'll edit later when (if) I figure it out.

    The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

    If you've never seen it then you really should take a look. Wonderful directing from Leone in this film.

    Hello:

    I am a movie buff and have a large collection of videos and DVDs, so I can't pick just one favorite.

    However, in the Drama genre, here is a contender:

    Once Upon a Time in America, 1983, with Robert Deniro, James Woods and other great actors.
    Warning: this is a LONG movie - 226 minutes, but I HIGHLY recommend it.

    I really can't make up my mind. I have many dvds. i went to film school ;-D

    One solid movie is "Batman Begins" Christopher Nolan did an excellent job.
    Script is top notch, production quality A+, and the acting...

    well, some of my favorite actors are in it:

    * Gary Oldman (one of my favorite of all-time!)
    * Michael Caine (can't beat this guy... what a way to deliver a line!)
    * Morgan Freeman (super believable in any roll)
    * Liam Neeson (This guy is awesome!)
    * Tom Wilkinson (this guy is british, playing an italian... whoa!)
    * Rutger Hauer (loved him in Blade Runner - another favorite)
    * Cillian Murphy (this guy just looks psychotic - and delivers a great performance)

    ...and last but certainly not least:

    * Chritain Bale (one of the best actors of his generations - watch "the machinist")

    yes, this movie is in the Top 10 and its a shame I haven't seen this in other Top 10 lists. Another thing is the score... it really compliments the movie.

    Watch it again and Let me know what you think of Batman Begins.

    -C

    p.s.
    Another gem is "Quantum of Solace" - 1 hour 46 minutes of pure
    Bond done in an artistic, stylized way... kudos to the production team ;-D

    Michael O said:"If the books had never been writeen, but the movies were...they would be awesome movies."

    Probably so, but the books were written and the movies that were made differentiated enough from the books to make it a different story from the books.

    As I said before, the books were great, and the movies were ok, but the movies are not the same story that is in the book,and for a great many of us, its the story that got our attention, not the special effect possibilites.

    My favorite movie as of the moment is "500 Days of Summer." It's very honest and depicts the reality of life. No pretentions and fairy tale endings on love. I loved it so much!

      I think for me it is An Affair to Remember (the original with Cary Grant, not the remake with Warren Beatty, although I think that had a different name).

      The Sound of Music is a close second.

    Don't have one favourite but lots that I love - a few that spring to mind are

    Death at a Funeral ( not the latest one but the one which is about four years old)
    Hot Fuzz
    Austin Powers
    Love Actually (yes I know,but I like it)

    Two films I love are Shirley Valentine which I could watch over and over, and Billy Elliot which has huge sentimental value for me for several reasons.
