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
Depends on my mood; but I always love the movie "All Fools Rush In"!
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....
its way better to watch it with someone who has a closed mind
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...
Kostner was great in that flik with Gene Hackman...he plays a naval intelligence officer who's girlfriend get's murdered...great movie
Raging Bull is great. Any movie that has a boxing scene it nowadays, steals from that movie.
The Godfather trilogy. Fight Club. Tropic Thunder. Transformers... And the list goes on...
Forest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, and Casaway... The best.
i like a lot of films, but this one comes to mind:
Jackie Brown by Quentin Tarantino
Current Favorite Movie: ANNE OF GREEN GABLES/ANNE OF AVONLEA (1985)
I like The Last of the Mohicans - great movie and great soundtrack.
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.
Star Wars: A New Hope
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
On the Waterfront
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
It's a Wonderful Life
The Last Emperor
I'm SHOCKED! SHOCKED! that you people don't know that Casablanca is the greatest film ever made.
Now, go round up the usual suspects....
V for Vendetta. Come on now, how can you guys love playing with words and not be completely in love with V??? Great flick.
All my favorite movies can be counted on one hand.
The Fifth Element
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!!
Double Indemnity with Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray and Edward G Robinson.
any of those gangster flicks with James Cagney or John Garfield - seXy.
The Last Samurai. Seabiscuit. i cried during both.
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.
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.
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.
Awakenings...Scent of a Woman....Thin Red Line....A Beautiful Mind...Shawshank Redemption...
(hmm...I should stop before I get carried away...)
My favorite would have to be Trainspotting, i don't know how many time i've seen it, brilliant characters.
alltime favorite has to be the french version of Cyrano with Gerard De'Pardo best love story EVER!
Next in line "A Long Kiss Good night" with Geena Davis and Samuel L Jackson. Great action spy flick

For me, it's always a toss-up between...1. Blues Brothers 20002. Caddyshack 23. Anything with Julia Roberts in itNotice how Dan Aykroyd made the list twice. The guy can ruin almost any film he's in. Has he ever been in a movie with Julia?
