    People that say movies aren't an art form needs to wake up. Also, while it's true that movies based on a book fall flat more often than not, movies in themselves can portray emotion and circumstance that engages your mind in a whole other way. So, I'll start with a few of my favourites!

    The Royal Tennenbaums
    The Life Aquatic
    Pulp Fiction
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    Papillon
    Iron Man
    Sideways
    Forrest Gump
    Robocop
    Contact
    Close Encounters of The Third Kind
    The Incredibles
    Four Rooms
    Kill Bill 1&2
    The Pink Panther Movies (not the Steve Martin drivel)
    And many, many more....

    Back To The Future(s).
    Terminator(s).
    The Matrix(s).
    The Time Machine.
    Men In Black.
    I am Legend.

    I like a lot of films, but only some that I watch over and over again. I've just watched The Matrix again and I've understood something else about it this time. Actually understanding that The Matrix isn't real. It felt wierd.

    My list varies depending upon mood, but some of the best I've seen (in no particular order)...

    Unforgiven
    The Story of Qiu Ju
    Casablanca
    Bladerunner
    Sahib, Bibi aur Ghulam
    Memento
    Spirited away
    Brief Encounter
    Aakrosh
    Pulp Fiction

    Can't remember what the most recent, or newest, film that I've seen might be, but it's probably one of last year's rubbish Hollywood blockbusters - eminently forgettable, and forgotten.

    Now, to demonstrate my age:

    Duck Soup - Without the Marx Brothers there would have been no Goons, no MontyPython.

    Casablanca - Bogart at his best. A shoestring budget. A rushed production. An incisive script. A total masterpiece. (Small time gambler: "You despise me don't you Rick?" Bogart: "I suppose I would if I ever thought about it.")

    Citizen Kane - Orson Welles invented modern cinema with this film. (While that is true I've only really put this in because every amateur cinema buff is meant to declare this the greatest film ever made.)

    Zulu - The sound of Men of Harlech sung by the hundred odd Welshmen of the 24th Regiment of Foot, slowly swelling to overpower the chanting and drumbeats of the 4,000 beseiging Zulu's is a masterpiece of cinematic metaphor.

    My Fair Lady - Perfection in every regard.

    The Lord of the Rings - the most accurate and the most sincere transfer of book to screen ever. (But I missed Tom Bombadil and they should have made it longer.)

    A Hard Day's Night - It captures Beatlemania and my teenage years to perfection.

    Saving Private Ryan - Without meaning to be nasty there are times I am glad John Wayne is dead. Unfortunately we still have Stallone.

    I could go on. I shan't. Most recently watched film. I watched two last night and have no idea what they were. I enjoyed Wild Hogs at the weekend.

    This day and age it almost seems easier to classify movies by their directors rather than listing off 10 movies directed by the same guy. So I'll say:
    I love Tim Burton movies.
    The most important thing I have learned about the internet is that it needs lot more kindness and patience.

    Recently saw Miyazaki's "Howl's Moving Castle". Not quite the perfection of his earlier "Spirited Away", but still vastly superior to any other fantasy (live action or animated) I've seen. Highly recommended. The man's a genius (and I have forgiven Disney any number of horrors for its vision in dubbing and releasing these films in the West).

    Agreed! They shouldn't have let Pretty Boy's vanity off so easily.

    Miyazaki's Grave of the Fireflies had me blubbering hard at the end, which is unique. Uncomfortably, it and Totoro first showed as a double bill. So millions of small children took that in. I consider it a cultural item everybody must experience, like every kid must lose a game of Monopoly or see Charlie Chaplin eat a boiled boot in The Gold Rush.

    Silent films lately. My favorite so far: Buster Keaton's The General. It isn't necessary. It's just a fun movie.

    I also thoroughly enjoyed Spirited Away. I love the weirdness and artiness of it.

    Two other movies:

    "Burn After Reading" - Coen brother’s movie. Really great performances by some of my favourite actors. Frances McDormand just always nail her roles. Original and funny, but also a revealing look at society and the human condition.

    "Mirrormask" - stop-motion animation masterpiece!

    Anyone else watch these?

    To my utter shame (and NO reflection on the film) I fell asleep half way through it. My god-daughter's mum (who was my 'date' for the night, daddy doing the baby-sitting) has sworn never to take me to a film again - I was actually snoring.

    The bits I did see, though, were really good fun!

    Just finished watching a great indie movie written, directed and starring Marianna Palka with Jason Ritter, called Good Dick. Very original and subtle, great performances and very engaging. Not a crowd pleaser, but some people in the crowd will absolutely love it.

    Lost in Translation (#1!!!)
    Watership Down (#2)
    and in no particular order
    In Good Company, Ratatouille, Harold and Maude

    Honorable mention going to...
    House of Sand and Fog, Gattaca, Juno, and the Prince of Egypt. And pretty much all Pixar films, especially Up.

    Watership Down truly is a stunning adaptation of the book. In general I like easy-going films.

    My favourite movie are:

    1. The Matrix movies
    2. American History X
    3. Fight Club

    1 and 2 are basically a tie though.

    Matrix because it is so out there and gets you thinking.
    American History X because it shows the negative aspects of gangs and racism.
    Fight Club...2 hot actors and a great plot...and a big surprise at the end.

    Christmas is on the way so it has to be " Bad Santa " it is a very politically incorrect film.

    Once upon a time in the West

    Absolutely brilliant, timeless classic, from the visuals to the actors to the soundtrack. Highly recommended, even for someone not into Westerns.

    I can understand the first three - Forbidden Planet would be in my Top Fifty - but seriously Wayne, Ice Station Zebra! The only endearing thing in the movie is Patrick McGooghans line (I peraphrase) "We have to recover the device for our German scientists before the Russians recover it for their German scientists."

    Der Untergang (Downfall). A German movie with English subtitles about the last days of Hitler. Completely brilliant.

    It was pretty emotional in a way to see some of the story from the perspective of Hitler's secretary Traudl Junge. I had watched the whole World at War series narrated by Laurence Olivier and there were several bits of an interview with Traudl Junge interspersed in the series. The series was made in '73. The emotional bit was seeing a few words by Traudl Junge at the end of Downfall as an old lady shortly before her death. Great movie.

    No, No George C Scott
    1957: Martin Balsam, Lee J Cobb, E G Marshall, Jack Klugman, Henry Fonda, Ed Begley, et al... What a great cast, and a taut, tense, one camera drama.

    Haven't seen that version before. The 1997 version was pretty good as well, directed by William Friedkin and also with a great cast, including Jack Lemmon, George C. Scott, Tony Danza, Edward James Olmos, James Gandolfini, Armin Mueller-Stahl, William Petersen.

    It pales in comparison to the 1957 version... but I almost always prefer the classics.

    Worth renting or streaming if you can, IMHO.

    There is absolutely no comparison between the two. The first version was as near perfection as cinema can be. Attempting a remake was ludicrous. Since it is such a well constructed and powerful story the remake is a good film, but the original was a great film.

    Wow, I thought the 1997 version was great, so the original must be brilliant after two such glowing recommendations. I'll definitely try to get my hands on it!

    It is one of those few films that if I run across it on one of the film channels I just sit and watch it again. I just hope I haven't oversold it to you, like taking someone to ones favourite restaurant and they get food poisoning.

    I won't get my hopes too high up. I am not used to movies from that era, but I have watched a few and liked them, with people like Buster Keaton and Micky Roony. One thing though is that the kind of acting style from that era I have always found to be a bit put on and not as believable as some great modern films, though I do respect Peter Fonda. I am quite a bit younger than you guys after all. Still looking forward to it. I did enjoy Bridge Over the River Kwai a lot.

    Most of my favs have already been mentioned. I really liked Masterpiece theaters rendition of "Any Human Heart". The only romance film I've ever liked was "Before Sunset" because it felt real as opposed to a fairy tale.

    Thank you, sculptor, thank you!

    I'd been trying to think of the name of that film.

    Thats the one with the ships in space carrying the forest domes right? I could not remember the name either.

    That was good, but not as good as Before Sunrise, the first one that came out in 1995.

    you're welcome

    dmwyant-yes
    the last forest from a dying planet
    set adrift because someone higher up thought the project a waste of power and money
    .............
    didn't much like the film the first time i saw it(kinda sad for my tastes), but my big brother loved it , and when i saw it again "through his eyes" i began to appreciate it more
    ........
    maybe that's one of the reasons that i plant trees, dig frog ponds, etc
