Mine is World War Z because the Suspense was killer, it had my heart pounding throughout! What's yours?

The Princess Bride. Perfect combination of silliness and storytelling, combined with superb acting. This is the only exception to the rule that the book is better than the movie.
ANB is good. Change my mind.

Star Wars. Love all of the original trilogy, if I had to choose one it would probably be Empire Strikes Back.

If I was in 70 films over 30 years and I spent each one talking at random volumes, I might accidentally win an Oscar too.

...wait, is Cage playing Ray or Buck? I love the confused look on his face, like he's asking why in the world they would make this. Or maybe that's just me.

There's a lot of really great movies that I love, but this would have to be my hands-down favorite movie:


Watch it if you haven't seen it.
If you were to go on a trip... where would you like to go?

Cinderella Man: one of the best pictures of a careing father Hollywood ever released built on a great atmosphere. Oh, and it's a true story.

Braveheart: were in off topic so I can put this movie on. It's epic (and rightfully earns that monicker.) the movie pulls at the meaning and value of freedom and has some of the best dialog out there.


A Knights Tale/the Princess Bride: I love both of these movies for the same reason. They are both hilarious and deliver their comedy without simply bashing on stereotypes or using vulgarities.
The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

Cage is playing Ray.  The guy to the right is Cameron.

Also from their site:

Quote
The entire film takes place on the day of the Rapture

So don't expect much of the original story in this movie (except probably chapters 1-4).

For me? The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, definitely.
This is where my love of the story comes from. (Forgive me, I haven't finished the books yet. :P) I love the story, characters, and the themes in the story. Also, I love the set and costuming designs, the cast, and especially the score. It's my favorite film score of all time.

My other favorite movies are:
Les Miserables (2012 Version)
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Casablanca
and A Hard Day's Night. :)

Yeah, yeah, necro and what not...I haven't been around for awhile, but I just wanted to not endorse my favorite movie. Hint: it has Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, and other Romans.

The next five or so movies on my top list would probably be any of Nolan's movies that I've seen except TDKR...it just wasn't that good, and if you don't believe me, watch the Honest Trailers trailer for it. But Batman I and II, Inception, The Prestige, and Memento are all super good.

Lord of the Rings, by Far.

If they make an actual good movie of Eragon that followed the book (which Christopher Paolini mentioned he might!!) That will be my favorite.
