Ah, good mention on Bloodsport.

It's something about movies like that, even though they are B class movies at best, make you feel like popping up some popcorn and just relaxing.

Sort of like Wayne's World.

Whether or not it is my top or not, Memento, is among the top couple! It is the only one that comes to mind right away, when I think of top movies!

Epp, that's a tough one!

Well, I don't think I can single it down to the all time best.
I think it is easier to do if you catagorize it with genres, IE:

Favorite war movie- Saving private Ryan (band of brothers was far better but thats not really a movie, now is it)

Favorite epic- LOTR

Favorite love story- What dreams may come...

Favorite remake- Halloween (rob zombie hit that sh*t with a ballpeen!)

Favorite scary film- The ring (there is just something not natural about this movie, it actually spooked me.)

Favorite mob flick- Untouchables or Scarface (its 50/50 for me)

Favorite foreign film- Pans Labrynth

Favorite animated- Waltz with Bashir.

Favorite "B" film- Chopper Chicks in Zombie town


I find that when you ask people what there favorite film is its usually pretty tough to come up with a difinitive answer , however when you ask them whats the worse film they ever saw they have an answer pretty much right away.

Worst film ever- Convict 762



*edit for spelling*

Saving Private Ryan and The World According to Garp. Both are among the very few movies to which I had an emotional reaction. I teared up at Tom Hanks "earn this" line and at when Robin Williams character was shot.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Ya, one right off the top of my head is: Young Frankenstein.

This would have to be it, no question. I must have watched it 50 times, and read the book even more.


(Gotta love the Norman Rockwell painting)

I saw the 1984 Bill Murray version first and then spent years tracking down the 1946 original, first on VHS, then DVD. It's quite easy to get now, but around 2001 it wasn't.

Honourable mentions would be (in no particular order), Fantasia, Fight Club, Blues Brothers and the Matrix, all of which I've watched many times.

Re: The All Time Favorite Film Thread

While many movies are on my list as "go to" reference movies, my all time favorite is a bit tougher to name. Three top my list as I can watch these movies any time, any place and in any mood.

Hot Fuzz
Army of Darkness
Big Trouble in Little China

Quigley Down Under

Hello all,
One of my favorite movies is Quigley Down Under. It is a great movie, good vs evil, shows some deep meaningful stuff in it like when poor ol Cora finally tells Quigley how she accidently killed her baby, what her husband did, how he never looked back, etc., which explains why she is half cracked, and how Quigley did look back, etc. Just a great movie.

And of course two of my favorite actors, Tom Selleck (Quigley) and Laura San Giocomo(Crazy Cora) play in it. I think Laura is a beautiful talented actress. I love her style, her manarisms, and her subtle humor. I like the guy who played Marston, a great actor two (he plays someone in Harry Potter too). I also liked the actress who played the aborigine woman whom Cora handed the baby she had rescued to. I wonder was she an actress playing that part or a real aborigine they got to play the part? A very nice looking woman to me!
