"I am Batman". Batman.

"No one could touch me, I was Escobars Guy"

George Jung-Blow.

"Dare to disturb the Universe". The Chocolate War.

There is nothing sadder Than wasted Talent.

Favorite movie in the past couple of years: LotR, because that really is just one movie in three parts, or maybe Pirates of the Caribbean if that doesn't count
Favorite movie ever: Clue — you just can't go wrong with Tim Curry as a host/narrator character

Saw, Se7en & The Silence of the Lambs, all tie with eachother for my favorite movie.

I am the way into the doleful city
I am the way into eternal grief,
I am the way to a foresaken race.
Justice it was that moved my great creator;
Divine omnipotence created me,
And highest wisdom joined with primal love.
Before me nothing but eternal things
Were made, and I shall last eternally
Abandon all hope, all you who enter.

Favourite: I'm not sure; I like a lot of movies, but Grind is pretty good as well as Billabong Oddysey - if that counts as a movie.

Least Favourite: Moonraker in the James Bond series. I hate it!

I'll put a Spring in your step.

What Kel said - LotR, as well as Pirates of the Caribbean (I have a special place for it in my heart owing to the coolness of pirates and a man-crush on Johnny Depp).

Past favorites for me were The Fifth Element and O Brother, Where Art Thou?

I don't know. I liked the original Matrix the first time I watched it, but I also like Pirates of the Carribean and LotR - it's hard to decide. I guess Matrix is out due ot it's horrible successors ;)

Personally, I like Ronin.

Batteries not Included is my favorite classic.

And it's hard to beat LotR when you love si-fi\fantasy as I do.

LotR hands down.

I've seen Batteries Not Included and really liked it. Didn't know anybody else watched movies like that anymore. :)

The Shawshank Redemption
This is my perennial favorite. I've also deeply enjoyed The Fifth Element, Pulp Fiction, The Truman Show, Contact, Se7en, Dogma, The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, Dr. Strangelove, and Unforgiven.

LoTR is hugely overrated; with the kind of material and budget Jackson got, any moron could have made a great movie.

Throw in EoE for leavening because I literally cannot have a conversation without making reference to it, and that's my list.

The Usual Suspects or Adaptation.

—Alorael, whose taste in movies is hugely informed by his general distaste for seeing movies at all. Even when they're good he hates go watch them.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The original Star Wars trilogy.

The Indiana Jones trilogy.

The James Bond series.

Saving Private Ryan

Space Balls

And that's all I can think of right now.

The critics agree!

Demonslayer is "a five star hit!" raves TIMES Weekly!

I have to say, I think that Dead Man, by Jim Jarmuch (don't know if the spelling on that is right..) is my favorite movie.

Titan A.E.
Cowboy Bebop, the Movie
Army of Darkness
The 13th warrior
Demolition Man

Think that's enough for now, but anything that Antonio Banderas is in can go on that list.

Not necessarily. Ever seen the Ralph Bakshi version?

LotR, being the scifi/fantasy junkie I am.
Picnic at Hanging Rock
Starship Troopers. I don't know, after years of StarTrek, the lack of don't-kill-sentient-bugs ethics was refreshing.
Galaxy Quest
Groundhog Day
And, of course, all the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc etc.

Sorry but I have to break this down in categories. Only way I can do it.

Action movie(not Sci-fi or Fan.):

The Road Warrior - No action flick since has been as visionary or compelling.

Sci-Fi : Pitch Black - Say what you will about the sequel and all other Vin Diesel movies but this one was perfect. Great dialogue and pacing.Actually tied with Blade Runner to be honest.

Fantasy : LotR - I am not a fan of Tolkien(more a Moorcock, Howard & Lieber fan) but Jackson did about as good a job as anyone possibly could and the actors took the film seriously. Dragonslayer starring Peter McNichol is a close second.

Comedy : Half-Baked - WAYYY underated movie. Made CHeech & Chong look like rank amatuers. Funny even if you're NOT high.

Drama :Gladiator - I know, I know...could be an action flick as well. Really though this film was brilliantly scripted. Probably tied with The Shawshank Redemption and a few others.

Suspense/Thriller : The Usual Suspects - 'Nuff said.

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly
Yellow Submarine
The Basket Case trilogy
The Hitcher
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
The Manchurian Candidate (the original)

Not exactly a comprehensive list, but it's the best I can come up with in a semi-intoxicated state.
