Favorite movie(s)?

I was reading the music interest thread and thought that it would be interesting to see if anyone likes film. Personally, I'm a cinema freak, it is the first love of my life. So, list your *** here. Favorite movies, least favorite movies, movies you would like to see, movies you want to see again.

My favorites are:

Spaceballs
Blazing Saddles
V for Vendetta
Silence of the Lambs
Shawshank Redemption
300
Man of Fire
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Requiem for a Dream
Big Fish
American Psycho
Dead Alive (Braindead)
Baseketball
Orgazmo
Feast
Wrong Turn

    All time- The Big Lebowski

    Still a Happy Madison Production fan(too many classics: Happy Gilmore, Grandma's Boy, etc)
    Add Kevin Smith & most Tim Burton (didn't so much like Nightmare before Christmas)

    The Boondock Saints
    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy(book too)
    What the Bleep Do We Know(quantum edition too)
    Most comedies will float my boat

    I can't say I watch alot of movies or TV for that matter...but if you haven't seen Dexter, it is one show that I don't miss.

    Least favorite movies are most recent movies

    it just seems like only 1-2% of all movies are worth watching
    most movies really suck

    I tend to like good movies.

    Godfather
    Cool Hand Luke
    Raging Bull

    Probably my fav three.

    Others I love
    Braveheart Shaving Ryan's Privates, oops, I mean Saving Private Ryan Caddyshack
    The Big Lebowski
    The Outlaw Josey Wales
    Unforgiven
    Signs (big M. Night and Joaquin fan)

    My least favorite, at least for the moment, seems to be The Departed. I really am astounded at how bad that movie sucked.

    The Searchers
    Michael Clayton
    The Outlaw Josey Wales

    Like kuzi, I'm a Kevin Smith fan. I'm also a Tarantino fan as well. Some of my favs are as follows

    Reservoir Dogs
    Full Metal Jacket
    Platoon
    The Hustler
    Clerks
    Airplane
    Night of the Living Dead (original)

    And that's about all I can pull from the top of my head, I'm not a huge movie watcher, mostly for the fact that there is soooo much garbage out there.
  • urbinourbino Posts: 4,517
    "The Hustler" reminds me of another one of my faves: "The Cincinnati Kid."
  • gmill880gmill880 Posts: 5,947
    also enjoyed Wall Street and Boiler Room although they may not be popular choices in todays political climate
  • My problem is that I don't like good movies, so I hate Tarantino, Kevin Smith and the like. As for favorites: The entire Nightmare on Elm Street series Most of the Friday the 13 films.

    Yeah, IMO even their 'worst' movies are still entertaining.
  • urbinourbino Posts: 4,517
    I don't think the first Batman goes in the bad movie category. I haven't seen The Dark Knight yet, but other than that, I still think that first one is the best one. Now, its sequels, those were god-awful.
  • Garen BGaren B Posts: 977
    Man I forgot about Kung Fu Hustle Waffle, saw that a few weeks ago for the first time in years and laughed my ass off.

    If she did than wheel is ok.

    I had a table tonight that looked like she was sixteen, but, damn she was pouring out of her shirt. I couldn't help but stare. I'm a dirty old man, I'm a dirty old man. At the ripe age of 22. It dosen't help that I sent almost all the guys in the restaurant around to take a gander including my mananger.

    I do believe that in this case 16 would be okay, but only to look at according the law, now if it was say the 1800's or early 1900's you'd be fine either way... Though I find myself looking at anything that is falling out of a shirt, (yeah, boobs of the woman variety just in case anyone wants to give me some crap)

    16, 18? Who cares. I'll just got to Amsterdam and get married Or Utah. HAHA!! If this WAS the 1800's, 14 would be ok. They got married young back then.
