UPDATED:

Other than the trilogies (Star Wars / Indiana Jones / BTTF / LOTR) and the random mish mash of movies that everyone else usually says (Godfather, Scarface, Tarantino movies).

I also like myself some Kubrick:

2001, Full Metal Jacket, and Dr. Strangelove (one of my favorite movies ever).

My other "Favorite Movie ever" is probably Inherit the Wind (1960).

And I will always have a soft spot for The Brave Little Toaster and Short Circuit 2

Other Random Films that rule:

1) Léon
2) Office Space
3) One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
4) The Man Who Would Be King
5) Gattaca
6) Forrest Gump
7) Alien + Aliens
8 ) The Princess Bride
9) Meet the Parents
10) Ong-bak
11) Radio Flyer
12) Lawrence of Arabia (I actually saw the entire 3+ hours with only the original intermission)
13) Ghost in the Shell
14) Terminator 2: Judgment Day
15) The Umm "Evangelion Movie" (I don't know the title)

Momento is my favorite movie right now Smile . After that.....

American Beauty, the first Matrix, and an interesting foreign film, the name of which I cannot recall at the moment, but it was Chinese and revolved around a boy and his grandfather on a trip across the country to unite with the boy's parents; it was very touching, poignant, and charming Smile .

....As you may tell, my tastes in movies are rather...specific Smile .

I'll go with whats mildly current (otherwise this would get way too long).

Favorite movie this year? Team America: World Police is #1 with a bullet.

The theatre I saw it in wasn't anywhere near full. But without a doubt, I have never seen an audience laugh that hard, and that consistently at a movie.

It managed to go from biting satire to juvinile humor with seamless transition, then shift RIGHT BACK AGAIN. And even things I'd normally shrug at as dull and simply gratuitous were handled in a very amusing way.

Also, just..the sheer amount of expectations I've seen this movie ruin gets it some credit.

We've become so numbed by predictable, repetitive political "satire" that people were just baffled by this. Everyone I've talked to expected one of the following:

Typical, mindless Bush-bashing

or

Equally plodding liberal bashing.

And this movie slammed ALL groups. Then it slammed trite hollywood blockbusters. Then it poked fun at itself. Then it just combined the three, and went with it.

Furthermore. I'd like to give major credit to parker and stone for not getting wrapped up in the election. Bush and Kerry not only don't have puppet doppelgangers, their names never even come up. And this seemed to throw people off. The filmmakers could easily have just rehashed the same old attacks on both candidates, but they had a completely different hit list so to speak.

Hell, it probably would have gotten a better response if it did just regurgitate sophmoric talking points into the mouths of those who seem to REQUIRE a movie that panders to their beliefs. But it did just the opposite. Everyone is mocked, nobody is truly vindicated, and the movie never looks back. These two knew exactly what kind of movie they wanted, exactly what they wanted it to say, and basically wrote off anyone who wouldn't get it.

And more power to them. It may not make a killing at the box office, but I'm sure this movie will live on through word of mouth and DVD sales.

Definately I'd see this again. And I haven't even gone over the soundtrack (if you're familiar with "South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut" you'll get a feel for their lyrical abilities.)
Mugiwara Luffy 10-18-2004 09:03 PM
Now I really want to see Team America!! Seriously, if it's made by the creators of South Park and if it has a soundtrack equal to or better than the SP movie, then it must be great!!!

*wishes he could go to the movies*
