All time favorite movie

Spooky 07-27-2004 01:37 AM
While I like Donnie Darko & The Fifth Element a LOT, I would have to say my favorite movie of all time would be "Life is Beautiful." Every time I watch that film I'm always moved - plus it's one I can watch over and over again without getting tired of the story.

I also REALLY like Edward Scissorhands, Star Wars, the Spider-Man & X-Men movies, Frida, Moulin Rouge and Trainspotting (I know...I have a random choice in movies!)

Just like everyone else, can't pick just one:

In no particular order:

Citizen Kane(young Orson Wells rocks!)
The original Star Wars trilogy(still better than anything else they've done)
Indiana Jones trilogy
Lawrence of Arabia(Peter O'TooleDrooling )
Bridge on the River Kwai(another David Lean movie)

I could watch these over and over and never get bored.
Hienrich Ele 07-28-2004 01:50 PM
Favorite movie? HA! I can't pick one. There are like... a few... and within that few are trilogies.


Indiana Jones -The last one being my favorite
Star Wars- Return of the Jedi being my favorite
Batman and Batman Returns
Nightmare Before Christmas
Eward Scissorhands
Full Metal Jacket- one of my more favorite ones
The Longest Day
A couple of the James Bond movies- anyone with Sean Connery really, 'cept "Never Say Never"

There are a few more I bet, but those are the only ones I can remember.

I must say that Little Nemo rocks!

Oh.... Uh.... I don't really have a favorite movie. I have a bunch of ties, but they have already been mentioned. Mainly Martial-Arts movies, preferably before all the string work... young Jakie, Bruce Lee, Bolo Yung... ECT.
LANIMILBUS 07-28-2004 07:17 PM
The Graduate. with dustin hoffman.

And pretty much anything by the Coen Brothers.

Good movie, with the unfortunate side effect of numerous...undesirables jumping on it.

Damn hot topic, trying to wreck crap I remember from my childhood..one of these days...bang, zoom, STRAIGHT TO THE MOON. (Ie: arson.)

I..think I listed my favorites once before, and now I've forgotten...

THIS IS NOT 'NAM. THERE ARE RULES.

CLASSIC.

Its hard to pick one for me, but as of right now, one would definatly be Fear and Loathing in Los Vegas. That movie is pure genius.

I actually came up with a list of my favorite all time movies, 50 of them to be exact and here are all 50...

Damn, I forgot the list in my other pair of pants... and my wallet as well. Anyway, here are some of my top seven movies:

1. The Godfather
2. The Godfather II
3. Casablanca
4. The Usual Suspects
5. The Shawshank Redemption
6. Scarface: The Shame of a Nation (THE ORIGINAL! I like the Al Pacino remake as well, but I like the original much more)
7. Malcolm X

That's not in any order, by the way.
Peace.
Generalissimo D 11-10-2005 06:47 PM
12 Angry Men, Casablanca, The Count of Monte Cristo, and Aliens.


Good stuff. Thumbs Up
