Hiya Ryan, welcome to the board! Hmm that is a truly difficult question, since I am a movie and t.v. junkie! Hmm well I love - So I married an Axe Murderer, American Beauty, Seven, Fight Club, Empire Records, Chasing Amy, Sixteen Candles...oh I could go on and on! But I really want to go see Xmen 2 it looks amazing! How about u what are some of your favs?
You know I've never seen 1, 2 or 5 on your list. So I'll take your word. But u know one movie I forgot...Scarface...how could I forget Scarface? And Dogma is another. Ah I got to stop talking about movies or I'll never stop listing more.
I have to say that my favourite movie all time is the continuing "Star Wars" saga,I can't wait until the spring of 2005,when the third and final Episode comes out,and will answer all remaining questions.
They start filming in Austrailia in June of this year,principle photography(with actors) will take till November to shoot,the rest of the time will be used to add the computer effects,sound,etc.
While "Star Wars" is my favourite,I do have a list of other movies that are also considered faves,here they are,by genre;
Sci-fi: Terminator 1 & 2(can't wait till part 3 comes out this summer)
Action/Adventure: Lethal Weapon 1 &2(3 &4 not quite up to par with the first two)
Comedy: How do you pick just one? OK.....um....Friday the 13th;entire series (I know,it's a horror movie,but some horror movie are also the best comedies)
Dramady(you know comic/drama): One flew Over the Cuckoos Nest......(Jack at his best)
Drama: The Hand that Rocks the Cradle
Movie featuring a Rock Band: Pink Floyd's The Wall
Sci-fi/comedy: Back to the Future Trilogy
That's all for now,I'll think of others I like and post them later.I loves movies(all movies) almost as much as music,and the Montreal Canadiens.
My personal all-time fav. movie was 'Platoon', probably in part because I'm old enough to have been 'there' had I been a US citizen, but its a tremendous movie no matter. I have seen Platoon at least 10 times and will watch it again and again, no doubt. The Godfather was another massive, award winner that I enjoy over and over.One movie that received little or no acclaim but I loved was "Donnie Brasco"... I also enjoyed 'American Beauty' wow what a job by Kevin Spacey, and unfortunately I can identify with his character from time to time ;D Er, man it looks like violence and killing is my thing, quick call a shrink. From a more recent point of view I was totally captured by 'Chicago', just amazing entertainment. As for comedy it would be a toss-up between 'Wayne's World" and Mrs. Doubtfire, but then again anything with Mike Meyers just about kills me.
I love so many movies, from serious to just plain silly! Although I think I've watched too many horror movies as a child, because I'm kind of desensitized to today's horror movies. It's as if they just don't make 'em like they used to. But in American Beauty, I totally related with Kevin Spacey's daughter's bf's character. If I had a video camera I'd probably tape everything I've ever seen, because life is so beautiful. We rush around so much in day to day living, that we take so much for granted. If we just stopped once in a while and took a look around, we would see, and cherish all the beauty this life has to offer
I am a movie addict or actually i should say avid DVD collector. Recently I've been on a major Horror movie kick and esopecially starting to get into Euro-Horror with movies by directors Lucio Fulci and Dario Argento (father of the beautiful Asia Argento). Horror is my favorite genre but i do enjoy all sorts of movies. I'll list some of my faves:
A Clockwork Orange Exorcist1 and 3 (3 is my favorite horror movie of all time) Halloween Scarface Chasing Amy Mallrats Swingers Rocky Godfather trilogy
I can keep going on and on but those are just a few. I'm always up for a good movie discussion.
My wife collects musicals. Rogers and Hammerstein, Rogers and Hart, Gershwin etc... I live watching those old flicks. It's really too bad that form of enertainment has gone the way of the dodo. They may be corny by today's standards, but they were good, decent family entertainment. My kids love them. The Sound of Music remains one of my all-time favourites.
Again, musicals, much like scary movies are just not made today like they used to be. I'm not a huge fan of musicals myself, but I loved "Mary Poppins" and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" when I was a kid. I saw one a while ago "Everybody says I love you" with Drew Barrymore in it, I thought it was horrible. One musical I absolutely adored that isn't a movie (well it is a cartoon movie) was "The Lion King." It sounds corny - a cartoon made into a theatre production, but I swear it was amazing. The set designs, visual effects and the performers voices were absolutely brilliant! I recommend it to children and adults alike! *2 paws up* ;D
Oh my OH MY! I'm a movie (and tv) addict. I LOVE movies. There's few favs:
Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas Amelié Lion King (yes, I love it. And cry every time) Pirates Of Caribbean Frida Once Upon A Time In Mexico Desperado Braveheart Three Musketeers Gia Benny And Joon Boondock Saints Girl, Interrupted The Sixth Sense
..... and so on.
And 'cause we have no secrets ;D I reveal that I'm really big Angelina Jolie fan. And Johnny Depp. And Edward Norton. And Bruce Willis. And.....
Did I say that? Or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me?
Yay, favourites! I love movies, so my list changes like every second.
The Matrix saga (part 2 for the twins, part three was better in my opinion (I've seen it twice already!)
Pulp Fiction, Brazil, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Cowboy Bebop the movie (I'm a manga fan, did you notice?), The three musketeers, any Monty Python movie, any movie with Christopher Walken in it, The Muppet Christmas Carol, Robin Hood Men In Tights, all movies by Tim Burton except planet of the apes, cats, Finding Nemo and all other Disney films, The Texas Chainsaw massacre, The Shining *thinks very deeply* House on haunted hill, Legend, Labyrinth, Almost Famous, The hours, 12 monkeys, while you were sleeping. Er. Yes.
I just saw Finding Nemo. Oh, ok fellows I'm not gone crazy yet am I!? NO! You should say! (OK, it's already 03:00 AM here in Finland) FM is an animation made by Pixar. It was soooooo funny that I laughed my ass off and also it's was so beautifully done that it hurts your eyes. It reminds me about the legendary Shrek, ooooh baby what a blast that was. Anybody else seen these movies!?

Oh, sorry I almost forget to write down my fav movies:
- Almost Famous (dunno, just makes me happy) - Matrix (not so much about those sequels) - Memento (what an idea) - Mulholland Drive - Sixth Sense (..just to mention few, can't remember anything because sooo tired)
