What is your favorite movie or movies and why?
Omg I have millions of them. One of my favourites has got to be Shawshank Redemption. That film is just the sex, makes me cry every time.
For a comedy, it has to be Rat Race I think. It is hilerious.
For a childrens classic, it is definatly Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, the origional. Gene Wilder and his freaky hair, ow yessa.
Sin City is my favourite, I think it's absolutely brilliant - the effects, the way it's shot, the soundtrack, the lack of colour, the acting, it all astounds me. Also love the X-Men movies, all the Batman movies and Fantastic 4 cause I love DC comics and think they're all very well done. Brokeback Mountain also blows me away every time I see it, and both Bridget Jones movies because I find them hilarious. Chicago is another, I love the songs and the acting and all the drama. Four Weddings and a Funeral, too, because it's hilarious but also incredibly moving. LOTR series is another due to the effects, acting, plot, intensity and its brilliance Lastly 300 because it's so powerful and moving and riveting, and the effects are insane.
Think that's enough for now
Star Wars (The whole franchise, movies, games, books, comics etc rocks in my opinion. It did for Sci-fi what Lord of the Rings did for fantasy.)
Lord of the Rings of course
V for Vendetta
Kingdom of Heaven
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Shaun of the Dead
Saving Private Ryan
Kelly's Heroes (Most people have never heard of it, but Three Kings is a modern take on the storyline which took place in WWII and the quest for Nazi Gold!)
Band of Brothers
I just recently say this really cool movie called Equilibrium. Has anyone else seen it? I loved the themes, the characters, adn the actions equences were top notch. It screams cult classic.
The Last of the Mohicans, simply because it teachs a very important less about love and determination.
I have to agree Saving Private Ryan is really good as well as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
Some others that i enjoy are as followed:
Pirates of the Carribean(All three)
Ususally any movie at has to do with history and old times I really enjoy watching.
Legend of the Fall
I Enjoy that movie but its very sad.
The Breakfast Club
St. Elmo's Fire
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
The Bucket List
Got to have the funny movies
Those are just a few
yes and Kingdom of Heaven and Gladiator
I'm a sucker for kung-fu films, so...
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon- An Instant Classic
Hero- BEST MOVIE EVER!
House of the Flying Daggers- For the irony towards the ending
Iron Monkey- For Wong Fei Hong!
Peter Pan (Disney and real actors, not the musical from the 70's)
The King and I
Sound of Music
Phantom of the Opera
The Green Mile
and the list goes on and on...these are on the top of my head
Pitch Black was my favorite movie.
It was really good. I love the ideas and images in Pitch Black. Riddick was my all time favorite hero, but not hero.
Transformers The Movie Gen 1 Cartoon. 1987
American Beauty - for being beautiful
Contact - for being stunning, and having my favourite scene of all-time (on the beach )
Casino - the best Scorsese movie, with some classic scenes
The Birdcage - my favourite comedy. I think it's faultless bar one line.
American Psycho - an excellent film to study, but so underappreciated. Thankfully, much tamer than the book. Christian Bale deserved an Oscar.
Jurassic Park - I love dinosaurs, and this movie has a creepy atmosphere throughout
Princess Mononoke is possibly the greatest Animated film in history, except for maybe Ghost in the Shell. Anything from Hayao Miyazaki is pretty good.
I liked American History X. It wasn't what I expected but it was a great film with a totally unpredictable ending. I don't like Tom Cruise, but the Last Samurai was ok.
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Love the books, and the movies are so epic and awesome!)
Star Wars (Do I need to explain?)
Which line? My interest is piqued!
Gladiator - best movie ever with the epic thing down to the nail, you gotta love the Elysium scene.
Pitch Black - Riddick is just too cool and unpredictable
Lord of the Rings - because it was half as good as the books
V for Vendetta - Hugo Weaving totally got into it
Saving Private Ryan - A great war movie no list is complete without it
Blackhawk Down - It kinda sounds like a videogame story but it's good
Pearl Harbor - for the planes
Pirates of the Carribean(All three) - duh!!!!!!
300 - special effects were insane.
that's all from the top of my head
Kingdom Of Heaven
Gotta love Serenity
Exciting, witty, and a great plot- exactly the finish that Firefly deserved.
For some reason I can't think of any others, but I'm sure they'll come to me soon enough.
Favorite TV Show
The title of the thread says it all...
Whose Line Is It Anyway
How I Met Your Mother
Two and a Half Men
and I think that's it.
I particularly like the Canadian show Corner Gas and the Sci Fi show Who Wants To Be a Superhero? Other then that I'm mostly an anime fan. I like these ones:
Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle
Die Hard With a Vengeance
The Whole Nine Yards
The Whole Ten Yards
The Chronicles of Riddick
I can't think of any others
I didn't really think of anime here...hm....*adding*
