What are your favorite movies?

Postby spacefem » Tue Nov 27, 22:07 2007

Definitely all the Lord of the Rings movies. After that, anything with Jackie Chan. And I like foreign films, artsy films, independents, all that trendy stuff. I strongly dislike romantic comedies, poorly-done sci-fi (unless it's MST3000 material), and gratuitous violence.

RENT,Serenity, Lord of the Rings, Moulin Rouge, Requiem for a Dream, Van Helsing, Priscilla Queen of the desert, Chicago, Pirates of the Caribbean (but only the first one), The Corpse Bride, V for Vendetta, A dogs breakfast.

I like intelligent films that make me think. Then I like musicals. Then I like films that make me laugh without trying. I like independent films and films with subtitles but I rarely have time to watch any films and indies can be so hit and miss.

The Producers is definetely one of my favorites. RENT was amazing, I loved the music there as well. Shawn of the Dead was great. Anchorman was hilarious. The Lion King had really great music too. And King of Hearts. I don't know exactly what it is about it that make me like it though; I just do.

Star Wars, LotR, Grand Canyon, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, The Three Amigos, PotC (first one, mainly), most of the Pixar flix, Holy Grail, James Bond flix, and really, the HP films, The Goonies.

I love movies that make you think, like mindfuck movies, but also movies that are simply pleasant, foreign films, and rather silly films too. to name a few -

aguirre wrath of god, pride & prejudice, l'auberge espagnole, fight club, the godfather, un long dimanche de fiançailles, attack the gas station, waking life, apocalypse now, gone with the wind, knocked up, pulp fiction, battle royale, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, 300 (yeah!), the graduate, and Life On Earth (Narrated by David Attenborough).
Pour que tout soit consommé, pour que je me sente moins seul, il me restait à souhaiter qu'il y ait beaucoup de spectateurs le jour de mon exécution et qu'ils m'accueillent avec des cris de haine.

Far too many favorites to list. Older Disney films (think Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), Kubrick films, foreign stuff and a few blockbusters (think The Mummy here, and NOT Pirates of the Caribbean). Lord of the Rings of course, as well as anything else with Sean Bean in it.

I am silent film junkie and I could not live without The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Nosferatu, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Unknown. Today's acting talent can't hold a candle to Lon Chaney Sr.
