    Default Favorite movie(s)?

    So, everyone, what's your favorite movie? I'm always looking for new titles to add to my netflix queue. I also find it impossible to narrow it down to just one whenever asked this question, so share as many as you wish!

    Some of my all-time faves:
    Anything by Pedro Almodovar, especially Live Flesh and All About my Mother
    Amelie
    City of Lost Children
    Bridget Jones (the first one)
    my moral standing is falling down

    One more and I swear I am done.
    There was an HBO movie made several years ago about AIDS, from the virus's origin to the infection of thousands of people. It was a true story that followed how scientists discovered the virus, treatments attempted, etc.
    IT WAS AWESOME! It's called 'And the Band Played On'.

    If anyone has a rainy day with nothing else to do and you want to see a good, true life movie of a subject regarding our generation, see if this can be rented. There are big names in it and it's very interesting.

    The bad news: I think it's over 3 hrs long, but it's a good flick.

    Baraka

    Without words, cameras show us the world, with an emphasis not on "where," but on "what's there." It begins with morning, natural landscapes and people at prayer: volcanoes, water falls, veldts, and forests; several hundred monks do a monkey chant. Indigenous peoples apply body paint; whole villages dance. The film moves to destruction of nature via logging, blasting, and strip mining. Images of poverty, rapid urban life, and factories give way to war, concentration camps, and mass graves. Ancient ruins come into view, and then a sacred river where pilgrims bathe and funeral pyres burn. Prayer and nature return. A monk rings a huge bell; stars wheel across the sky.
    It's amazing.

    I like a lot of the movies you guys have mentioned.

    My all-time favorite for the time being is "Dancer in the Dark" with Bjork.

    My all time favorite movies are as follows

    Say Anything Classic...total girly chick flick, but I love it...its what started my love for John Cusack.

    Fight Club Good movie, Edward Norton was great, and Brad Pitt wasnt SO "Brad Pitt"

    The Shawshank Redemption I dont know why I love this movie so much, but every time its on tv I end up watching it again, even though I own it on dvd...

    Indiana Jones Basically any of the original 3 will do it for me. I've been watching the Indiana Jones movies since I was like, 4 years old and I've never gotten tired of them

    Garden State Newer favorite for me. I dont know what it is...it just seemed very "real" in an unrealistic sort of way. Does that make sense?

    Shaun of the Dead Eh just a silly spoof sort of movie, but I loved it...and apparently George Romero liked it too since he gave Simon Pegg a cameo in "Land of the Dead"

    The Whole Wide World Another chick flick sort of movie, but this time starring Vincent D'Onofrio! Yay! Its a good enough movie to ignore my hatred of Renee Zellwegger...

    Nightmare on Elm Street LOVE the Freddy Krueger character, and I own all 8 movies on dvd...the original Nightmare is the best though, because it was before Freddy became such a wise ass with the one liners and whatnot

    SLC Punk Sort of coming of age movie for the younger set....

    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Really, does it need an explanation? Anyone who I've ever known whos seen this movie totally loved it.

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail Again, do I even really need to say why??

    Alright I'm done with my long post...return to your lives!
