favorite movie

Hmmm...tough one.

"Battleship Potemkin" is one of my all-time favorites. Far ahead of its time and stiil modern in its presentation. Directed and edited by one of the true geniuses of the medium, Sergei Eisentstein.

"Blue Velvet" by David Lynch and "Citizen Kane" by Orson Welles are (naturally) WAY up there. Let's not forget about "The Third Man" either huh? ;)

I love film! So many films are woth mentioning that having a "favorite" is truly impossible.

Hmmm thats a hard question...very hard.

But i can't really tell my favorite movies since movies are so different from another to compare them...

I really like Taxi and Taxi 2 but i can't say that they are my favorite...

The Matrix

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Conspiracy Theory

Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory

The Power of One

Fist of the North Star


Assault on Precinct 13

Brassed Off

I'd better stop or I'll be here all night :biggrin:


hehe, blue velvet, hey who dubbed it as something like "The Hardy Boys go to ####"?

David Lynch films are really odd, but they're good, and better than Tarantino's darker films.

Here are my favorites

Rushmore (wes anderson and owen wilson can write some #### good scripts)



Back to the Future II

The Front


Reality Bites


Alien Nation

Superman II

Midnight Cowboy

Groundhogs Day


yeah, just there are so many, just as 3rdman said. THis is just the tip of the iceburg.

Actually it was David Lynch himself that quoted the film in that way. I love David Lynch's work...their so original. Have any of you seen "Wild at Heart?" It's a twisted take on the "Wizard of Oz"...just excellent!


Any Arnold Schwarzenegger movie (T2 is the BEST MOVIE EVER! :) :biggrin:)

Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

The Breakfast Club


Thumb Wars (if this counts, its probably technically a short film since its 30 minutes long, but its classic :))

monty python and the holy grail

dumb and dumber

Loose Change (i doubt anyone here has even heard of this one)

i know im forgetting a whole bunch, but those are my favorites of ALL time.

this is off topic but what ever. i saw blade 2 the other day did anyone else notice that the one fight scene resembles a fighting game?

Army of Darkness :D and final fantasy spirits within and lord of the rings.

i was pissed about lord of the rings loosing out to a beautiful mind.

I'd start with "Lock stock and two smoking barrels", Follow up with,


Ghost in the shell,

2001 a space odyssey,

Project A-ko

The Fifth Element

and if i ever find it the 8 hour version of Dune

Watch them all back to back and wash them down with the entire series of "love hina" and "hand maid may" :)




Taxi Driver




Il Postino

Cinema Paradiso

In no particular order. Anyone into stylish action films should check out Dobermann, a French film directed by Jann Kounen. Top notch, they should make a game of it.
