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.

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!

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!

I'd miss my own wedding if 2001: A Space Odyssey was showing at the local cinemagram.

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. :(

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.
