    Hey all. I love movies and writing about movies.

    So. What is your favorite movie?

    Mine is Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange. If you haven't seen it and you want to, make sure you keep an open mind.

      My all time favorite movie is "Off The Map" with Joan Allen and Sam Shephard.  It's beautiful, touching, and just wonderful

      Was that from the 60's or 70's?  I got really sick to my stomach, was  it based in England or Australia...?  I wonder if I'm decensitized now from all the CSI's series horror?  That was my first exposure to teenaged gang behavior and it really opened my eyes that all teenagers were not about what I was about....

    This is tough, since I can never make my mind up.

    Il Postino. This italian film is probably up there in my top 5.

    It's so poetic, and beautiful as it displays the simplicity of an Italian man, his life and love for poetry and friendship with Pablo Neruda. Rent it!

    Anything starring Kevin Costner, and I'm not even gay.  It's just that every time I see him portray a leading character--from Dancing With Wolves to The Postman to Water World to The Bodyguard, etc. etc., I think,

    "Yeah, if I were in that situation, I'd like to think I could handle the challenge as well as his (admittedly fictional) charcacter does."

    Dream on, Ghost...lol

    Raging Bull is great. Any movie that has a boxing scene it nowadays, steals from that movie.

    I liked the 'War of the Worlds', the one with Tom Cruise.  Those were the scariest looking Tripods I've ever seen!

    I also have a weakness for really good bad movies.

    Example. Caveman with Ringo Starr & Dennis Quaid.

    The movie is awful. I love it.

    Where does one start? Braveheart; Casablanca; Sunset Boulevard; Sleepless in Seattle (chick flick); The Brothers Blume out earlier this year was very well written and executed.  Citizen Kane.  Great lists here.  Wonderful reading them!!

    You guys wouldn't know a good movie if it bit you in the butt! There's only one greatest and it's 'The Good,The Bad and The Ugly'! "There are people with guns and there are people who dig,you dig!"

    Has anyone seen American Graffiti?  I only saw recently and thought it was really good.  I liked Harrison Ford as a racer.

        You really should!  If you like Happy Days, you'll love it.  The American Film Institute put it into its Top 100 Best Movies list.

    Gamerjohn:  Braveheart: Great story of a true warrior, but I'll tell you why I watched it four times (besides the aforementioned):  Mel Gibson all dirty and half naked.  But that was before he opened his mouth a little too much in the press...
    American Grafitti:  Another classic.  Lots of stars in that one.  Ford, Richard Dreyfus, Mackenzie Phillips.
    The more we write of our favorite films, the memories come flooding back for us.  This is a great forum.  Kudos to the initiator!  Have a great weekend, all, and Keep going to the movies!

    I love movies that have twists that make you rethink the entire thing.  Fight Club, Vanilla Sky, The Prestige, The Illusionist are all examples of these.   Memento does it many times.  I'm not sure I can pick a favorite.

      theageofcakeposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      This really is a superior list, especially because every one of your selections demands repeated viewing.  It can be kind of boring when the details of a film are so transparent the first time around.  I am a big fan of Memento, especially.

    A very tough choice for me since every movie has a different way of entertaining me. I could throw movies like Nurse Betty, Being John Malkovich, and Very Bad Things up on this list, or Million Dollar Baby and the Godfather Triology.
