Whats your favorite movie of all time?

Postby LeGasp » Fri 08.25.2006 2:21 pm

I love watching movies, and I had a hard time deciding which was the best. Unfortunatley, I couldn't so I made a tie X.X
The best movies I've ever seen are:
TheMoulin Rouge
La Bella Vita
The Five People You Meet In Heaven

I really recommend The Moulin Rouge, its wonderul with all the songs, and the scenery. I also love the characters, and when they do sing its either super funny or super deep.

La Bella Vita is an Italian film about a boy and his father's time in a Concentration Camp during World War 2. I love the father and the mother's relationship in the movie. The ending will make you cry, it made me cry. But its in Italain with English subtitles.

The Five People you Meet In Heaven is a beautiful film, as well as wonderul book. My favorite character is Ruby, but I wont get into that and ruin the story. It's another tear jerker

So guys what movies did you like, and why?

The movie I like the most is probably Princess Bride.

The movie I can put on when I don't want to think and just watch something inane is Men in Black. I never get tired of watching that.

Two movies that came to mind are Before Sunset and The Notebook.. both are very romantic.

these are one of those rare movies that I can give full attention to when I watch it for the second time.

Black Hawk Down is great too.. the first time I watched it I did not understand it, but its so full of action that I can watch it again and again..

Muppet Treasure Island!

Close tie

Somehow the thought of these being on Tony's list is not at all surprising.

Hmmm...well, that's a real toughie! Among Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory for its sheer imagination, Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe for its deeper allegory(-ies), the Star Wars saga for whatever reason, and Pirates of the Caribbean (both of 'em) for that adventurous spirit and Captain Jack Sparrow :)...Gosh, I just can't decide!
