I could narrow it down to about 3, and they're completely different.
Office Space, Snatch, and the POTC movies.

I'm pretty sure if you just went back a few pages, you'd find this thread.

Don't believe there's one exactly like this. There's one for favourite Keira movie, and one for movies seen today etc but nothing specifically about a top 3 of all time.

The POTC movies are plural, which means it's more than one, which means your total is more than three, silly.

My top 3:

1. Millenium Actress
2. Bend it Like Beckham
3. Dr. Strangelove

You don't have to post top 3, I did just because I like them equally in different ways.

I said ABOUT 3, and the potc movies are like just 1 big movie.

Pirates of the Caribbean-The Curse of the Black Pearl
Dazed and Confused
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
The Usual Suspects

There are others, but I can't really think right now.

I saw District 13, and I feel as if I don't need to watch films ever again.
Well, the occasional rewatch of Ong Bak and Tom Yoong Goon (aka, warrior king, even though it has nothing to do with a warrior king)

Requiem for a Dream

Any person who considers Requiem for a Dream as one of their favourite films are mentally fucked up, and obviously has deep rooted psychological problems.
Don't get me wrong, its a great great film, but I couldn't watch it more than once.

Well aren't you a little ray of sunshine. Just because I consider it one of my favorite movies doesn't mean I don't think it is f***ed up. Yes, it is disturbing and extremely depressing, but it moves you. You couldn't possibly watch that movie and leave without being touched. Perhaps it wasn't in a way you wanted or liked, but it moved you nontheless. It is a very powerful film. I might, infact, have "deep rooted psychological problems" but that has nothing to do with me loving the movie.

1. Kill Bill vol. 1
2. Sin City
3. Snatch

GoPre do you like The Hostel because it has lots of boobs in? Because I've seen a lot of disgusting gruesome movies in my time and that one comes top. I think they should've gone into the whole idea the movie was based on more rather than the boobs and gore.

Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, any Wes Anderson films, Kevin Smith films except Jersey Girl, Sin City, Kill Bill, Resevoir Dogs, Cinatown, Garden State, i'm always up for a Scorsese flick (should've won so many fucking oscars). There's probably other movies.

and if i had another three after that (in no particular order) garden state, sin city, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind

I'm with Cliffeh on Requiem. I'm fucked up and even I wouldn't have that as a "favourite" film so anyone who does is a certified nutjob.

Win a Date with Tad Hamilton...heh.

Cara rocks. I want to have your babies.

A few of my favourites that noone's mentioned by name:

Taxi Driver.
Dogma.
Shallow Grave.
The Crow.
Shawshank Redemption.
As Good as It Gets.
Gladiator.
Big Trouble In Little China.
It's A Wonderful Life.
Leon.

I'm going to throw in a different viewpoint. from a cinematography point of view, requiem is an amazing film. I love it. From a script point of view, yes, its a bit, erm, well, weird. I'd watch it more than once... but not too often.

I am a huge movie fan, so i can possibly pick a top three, but to name but a few;
The Princess Bride,
POTC: CBP
Donnie Darko
Labyrinth
The Fast & The Furious
Trainspotting
Italian Job
The Love Bug (herbie is the kewlest Volkswagen ever!)
*batteries not included
Fight Club
Big Fish
It's A Wonderful Life.
The Hitchickers Guide to the Galaxy (the original... yes i know it was a tv series but pfft)
Batman Begins

...i could go on... but i wont.

Hooray for another Trainspotting fan! I've met one person who has ever seen that movie before me, and it excites me that somebody else has seen it aswell. Well, are you from the UK? Maybe it is more common there? In the states barely anyone has even heard of it...

Also, The Love Bug was great and that reminds me I need to rewatch it soon http://www.kkwavefront.org/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif

It may well be powerful, moving and all that (which I agree on completely) I have a deep concern for those who actually 'like' the film. It is among the best films I've ever seen, but I do not enjoy watching it, and it cannot be one of my favourites, much like one flew over the cuckoo's nest and deer hunter (to name but a few)

And to answer your above question, as Trainspotting is a very British film with a British cast, it is very well known over here.

Are you joking? It's one of the most popular films in all countries. You just talk to stupid people about movies. I take offense.


Shit, now I have to list some movies.

Comedies:

Eternal Sunshine
Wet Hot American Summer
Grosse Point Blank

Drama:

American Splendor
American Psycho
Deer Hunter

Action:

Boondock Saints
Kill Bill
Pulp Fiction

Foreign:

Oldboy
Goodbye, Lenin!
Red Violin
A Very Long Engagement


Those are some. It's too hard to only a select few of my favorites.

Yes, I must be talking to stupid people. I've talked a bunch of people into watching it though so maybe stupid people can love the movie too :)

Yeah Trainspotting is very popular here, although i haven't seen it because the goddamn Blockbuster never fucking has it. So i tried to read the book, and my head exploded because it was written in Pike. Then someone told me there was a dictionary of some kind in the back of the book... 4 months later... i was pissed.

I'd label it as a comedy. It's too obscure to just be labeled as a drama. And because of it's light-heartedness, I'd call it a comedy. A drama-comedy. A Dramedy (okay, I'll stop.)

Plus, I work at Blockbuster and it's in the comedy section. :)

Hm, that's odd, I didn't need the glossary in the back at all. I just put Ewan's scottish accent from the movie in my head and read it that way, makes it quite easy really. I'm about to start the sequel PORNO after I read "Riders on the Storm" and "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" Yes...I DO have to read them in the order I bought them, it bugs me if I don't :icon_err:

It's probably right as a drama, but I still think of it as a comedy. It had me smiling the whole way through. Plus David Cross is in it.
