Favorite movie?

Posts: 2,301
I've either lived too long or not long enough to have a favorite movie.

Right now though, I'm going to have to offer up "Let Me In" as one recent movie that is missing from these lists. (Yes, I know all about the book and the Swedish film)

Other movies missing from this thread...
The recently restored version of Metropolis. I never saw the shortened version that survived for most of the last century, but I can imagine what it was like if the extra scenes weren't there.

Anything by Terry Gilliam... (do I have to make a list? Seriously, just file him on the shelf next to Sam Raimi)

While I'm thinking about favorite directors, I can't forget Jean-Pierre Jeunet
MicMacs was fun but it wasn't as good as The City of Lost Children or Delicatessen

Gunslinger Girl is easily the most concise, beautiful and satisfying anime I've ever seen squeezed into a single season. (Rumors abound about a second season; don't believe them)

Repo Men deserves to be on a favorites list. I also think it is unfair to compare it to Repo: The Genetic Opera (which also deserves to be on a favorites list).

RoboCop despite the many sequels that I just can't ignore.

I'm going to stop there, but I reserve the right to continue later.

Spring Summer Fall Winter... and Spring
lol korea
The movie is really good though! It's about life and death and redemption and weird things. There's a fair amount of Buddhism symbolism I probably missed but it's still a great film.

Close second is City of God: continuing the trend, it's Brazilian. I love me some subtitles.
It's a partially-true story about the slums near Rio and the gang warfare and poverty within them.

I know a lot of people will get me now because mostly everyone here hates it because it's the same kind of story as Pocahontas and Dances with wolves but I don't give a crap. I like it because it was a gateway to a new world and I do like the story of discovering a new world that is more than meets the eye. Plus this move is a real spark for people around the world for the most obvious message of the world... Save this planet! I stand with my beliefs and say blue people with tails are awesome!

And one more thing, Neytiri is 10 times hotter than Kerrigan, Nova and Selendis combined.

I love all the LOTR movies, they are great.

But my favorites are:
Princess Mononoke- wonderful animation, great story, great music. If you have not seen it yet you should. Hayao Miyazaki is the best animator alive.
Seven Samurai- An Akira Kurosawa masterpiece, kinda long but brilliant, especially for a film from the 50s (is black and white)
