    Since there are threads for favorite movies, I was wondering what every ones fav movie is. The one you could watch over and over again. No "I can't think of just one" replys. Try to narrow it down to one.


    Mine would have to be Twin Peaks. David Lynch is a genuis.

    Just one... that's too hard, really...

    But Blade Runner might come out on top, but with a very narrow margin...

    Well, my first instinct would be to say Fight Club... but I've already seen it a trillion times...

    OK. Fine. Fight Club.

    The Big Lebouski maybe...?
    Trouble being there's so many different types of movie!
    I've only managed to get through 2001 a couple of times without nodding off myself! that psychedelic sequence goes on about 20 minutes too long!

    It IS tough to pick just one, but I think I'll go with October Sky.

    The Princess Bride

    Phenomenal movie? Perhaps not. But now that my daughter likes it, I have learned that I can sit through almost endless repetitions of it without growing weary. I can't think of any other movie I could see four times in four days without getting sick of it.

    Grrr....... I was thinking the Princess Bride, and then I get all the way down and you say it.

    Fine, I'll pick the Fifth element, cause Milla is HOT!

    That is the best movie ever! None of my friends like it because they say that they don't understand it. I try to tell them that your not suppose to understand it, it should to make you think. They just laugh at me. :(

    2. The Shape of Things
    3. Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
    4. I Heart Huckabees
    5. Happiness
    6. Dr. Strangelove
    7. Pulp Fiction
    8. A Clockwork Orange
    9. Wizards
    10. The Cabinate of Dr. Caligari
    11. Raiders of the Lost Ark
    12. Metropolis
    13. Napolean Dynamite
    14. Velvet Goldmine
    15. The Wall

    I watch far too many movies... I need a life.
