Mine: "Hiroshima Mon Amour," is a cerebral, intense, lovingly intercultural look at sanity and war in the 1950s.

I am ashamed to never have an answer for this one. I can never really figure out what my absolute favorite is.

While I try to figure that out...

'History of the World, Part 1' proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that it's good to be the king.

I can't wait for the sequel. Very Happy

My favorite movie is "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," yeah sounds depressing, then again it is, but the music is x10 ah-mazing!

Oh! Oh! This is one of my favorite topics!! I love movies!! And like Divided, I don't have an actual FAVORITE. But I'll list a couple from different genres.

Foreign -- my favorite director is Akira Kurusawa. All his movies are fantastic. But my favorites, in no particular order are -- "Dersu Azala," "Kagemusha," "Dodes Kaden," and "The Seven Samurai." I highly recommend his films if you haven't seen them.

I just rewatched David Lynch's "Mulholland Drive," which is fantastic if you like artistic, surreal movies. And we could get into an entire discussion here on what the movie actually means. David Lynch's "The Straight Story" is a wonderful movie as well, and very different from anything else he's done.

For romantic movies, there are several. There's a beautiful Chinese film called "The Road Home," that I sometimes think is the most romantic movie I've ever seen. I also love "Babette's Feast," which is more about the soul of the artist, but also is quite romantic. Of course, "A Room With a View" is very beautiful and romantic.

More to come....

Yeah, I don't have any that are downright favorites above all, but one that always makes me smile, and the music gets me going, is Mama Mia. Great movie. Very Happy

Anything by Stephen King is my choice, but Carrie (the original) is the absolute best..

Pumping Iron. The best scene is when Arnold's smoking pot after he won...Not that I am advocating using drugs. Just find it funny that he's the Gov.

"To Kill a Mockingbird" - Not only the best movie, but one of the best books ever. I was very sad to read that at one time Harper Lee (the author) had almost finished another manuscript; someone broke in and destroyed it. She never published another book.

Tenacious D and The Pick Of Destiny: Teaches us that a satanic guitar pick is what is necessary to become a rock star and that destiny is more important than tits.

Saw V: Shows that by working together you don't need to die a horrific death.

"The Blade Runner" (the directors version that omits the voiceover narration) - Ridley Scott's amazing vision of Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep".

Ink- A beautiful yet unflinching look at the world of dreams and nightmares that exists while we are asleep, and the light and darkness that battle to stay in perpetual balance within us all.

The Crow: In a world where the only mercy is the silencing of a cacophonous din by one's poison of choice, redemption born of fire creates a hunger for vengeance which can never be quelled.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch-Sometimes the only way to escape is to leave part of yourself behind; only then can you search for the part of you that is really missing.

Singles-It's hard to know what love is when the very undercurrent of your world is ambiguity; in the 90s, this ambiguity is known as: Being Single.

Songs for Cassavettes- As a director, John Cassavettes tried to give an honest face to real and sometimes difficult subjects, and this documentary of the early 90s independent rock scene does just that: shows the intensity, frankness, frustration, humor and ultimate genius of some of the earliest and most influential artists to ever stagger through the alleyways of Seattle, Olympia, and Portland.

Excess Baggage- What happens when a little rich girl yearning for daddy's love stages her own kidnapping and in the process gets inadvertently stolen by a carjacker is nothing short of hilarious and disarming, with a touch of smoldering sexiness as provided by Benicio del Toro.

and just cause it deserves it:

All Dogs Go To Heaven: The last of the true animated movies geared at both kids and adults, ADGTH is a wonderful portrait of a decent guy-scuse me-dog torn between doing what's right and doing what he always does-survive; in the end, all dogs do go to heaven, just as all people have the capability to transcend the darkness around them when inspired by the pure love of a child.

ok, done now
I have too been playing with fifty-two cards,
Just 'cause I play so far from my vest...
Whatever I've got, I've got no reason to guard;
What could I do but spend my best?

SNATCH - mix Brad Pitt's young bod with an unintelligible accect, international mob bosses, kick ass nicknames, hilarious predicaments and some serious rounds of boxing and ammunition, and you're in for a great ride.

The Exorcist the original from the 70's. I love sci-fi and horror movies and hate slasher movies. I have loved scarey movies since I was a small child. I saw this movie in 1974 with my now husband Randy and his brother Mike at a drive- in theater. Randy on my left in the drivers seat, me in the middle between the bucket seats, sitting on a pillow covering the emergency brake of a 5 speed and Mike in the passenger seat. It was so funny, we were all so scared, none of us would go to get popcorn or drinks. I would squeeze Randy's arm when something scared me and he would say I'll protect you honey and Mike would say yeah but who is gona protect you Randy, and then Mike would jump to scare me and I would punch him
in the shoulder and once accidentally knocked him in to the passenger window and that made us laugh and then 30 seconds later we would be jumping out of our skin again. Those are wonderful memories.
