Your favorite movie of all time - Page 2

post #41 of 66
my favorite is the Godfather Saga. its a little diff from 1 & 2 (don't worry, there's no parts of 3 in there), with most (maybe all) of those movies combined into one hugely long flick. its sequential (starting with the little don, to Bobby Deniro's don and into Marlon's don, and of course Al's), and theres a lot of extra scenes/bits added in (like the introduction of Hyman Roth to the Deniro). i havent looked at the dvd, but prior to dvds the only way to catch it was on cable; so there might be a way to watch the movie(s) sequentially, maybe with the extra scenes added. they never (i'm pretty sure) made a vhs of it for the public.

others near the top of the list (in the order i think of them, not ranked): reservoir dogs, pulp fiction, fight club, 2001, darko, and american psycho. i feel like i can watch any of these movies, and really enjoy them, regardless of how recently i've seen them, nor how frequent. there's little nuances i'll notice in all of them, even after seeing them like hundreds of times, that enhance the whole picture. i love how tarantino does the mixed up timeline. i loved the strong conviction in f.c. and of course, for trippiness nothing can touch 2001. darko and a.p. had this kind of darkness to them that is quite enjoyable. american psycho in particular, with the protaganist's demented, compulsive "habits."

Okay, aside from Teen-Wolf, my current favorite movie is 28 Days Later. It's a highly watchable movie.

The first two LOTR movies are great and I'm assuming the third will be the best.

And a couple of classics I can watch over and over; Bull Durham and The Breakfast Club.

Just a few:

Arlington Road

Because until two weeks ago, the thread hadn't been posted to since 2003 !!!

But since it's back... I'm gonna add "Operation Petticoat" (barely edged out "Father Goose" to top my list.)

Just saw Hackers (1995). Haven't seen it for a while, but it was really somewhat bold for its time. Of course the way the technology is depicted is quite ridiculous but what threw me the most is how they handled those 3.5" floppies. Stuffing it in air vents, putting gum on it and sticking it behind a condom vending machine, and even "hiding" it in the trash. I used to treat my 3.5" like babies and it would still CRC error like mad. And I'm talking top-of-the-line Maxell made-in-Japan stuff.

I can't believe no one has mentioned one of my favorite movies. "Little Big Man". The whole premise of the movie is hilarious. He's telling the story of his life and he's so old , that no one else is alive that can dispute ANYTHING he says. He was everywhere and he did everything.

Complete garbage to see this. A good movie with intelligence to watch was Exodus which you can learn from.

Wow, old thread! I might have to change my mind here. After seeing Million Dollar Baby... I'm going out on a limb here and say it's probably the best movie ever made. Absolutely stunning movie. If anyone has not seen it yet, what in the world is wrong with you?

I've watched it 100 times and it never gets old.

A great movie was the African Queen with Bogart and Hepburn. Adventure, Romance and Excitement.

One of the greatest movies of all times is Casablanca with Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.Nothing today compares like that.

You're wrong, the best one is white men can't jump!

EDIT: I watch so many films, I cannot choose a best one for me... But if i was to choose ones it'd be;
Basketball - WHite men cant jump
Rugby - Grid iron
Musical - Fame
Action - LOTR / Robin Hood / Taken

There is so much more but those are what came to mind
