Favorite Movie(or Movies)

I just want to start a thread on everyones favorite movie(I'm very bored right now.....) I would have to say I love comedies, and that my favorite movie is Happy Gilmore, but Gladiator and The Shawshank Redemtion are close seconds (notice those are not comedies)

Sorry if there is another thread like this.....

Favorite movies, man there are a ton: Star Wars a New Hope, Independence Day, Gladiator, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy for my serious picks. Then I get into goofy stuff like space balls, Monty Python, UHF.

I honestly don't think I could ever pick a top 10 movies or even top 50. There are a lot of great movies out there. Some off the top of my head that stand out right now

LOTR Trilogy
Braveheart
City of God
Pan's Labyrinth
Amelie (Very good movie)
300
Conan the Barbarian
Big Lebowski


The list could go on for a long, long time.

Well, I have three categories when it comes to favorite movies.

Animated - Castle in the Sky, Laputa
Action - Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Comedy - I'm not sure. There are so many...

I don't have a list of favorite movies because it's constantly changing and also depends on my mood. However, I'd be willing to tell you what I thought were highly overrated movies:

Napoleon Dynamite
The Royal Tenenbaums
Lost in Translation
Devil Wears Prada


I'm sure I'll think up a couple more. But those four are somewhat recent movies that just didn't live up to the hype.

THESE movies, though, are definitely worth your valuable time:

The Prestige
Young Guns
X-Men 2
(I loved X3 as well, but recognize that the second movie was better)
Spiderman 2 (I did NOT love Spiderman 3. That movie put sand in my va-jay-jay)
Batman Begins (a bit long, but a great start to the next generation of Bat-films)
Saw
Superman
(the original, not the magic-cellophane-throwing sequel, nor the super-computer baddie sequel, nor the abortion-on-reels sequel, nor last summer's Stalkerman Returns)

Yes, I'm mesmerized by Kubrick's films. Just this week I finally saw Barry Lyndon. Beatutiful, gorgeous, and the music, in tandem with the images, is pure Kubrick glory.

I'm going to go with Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and The Incredibles, but I can't put them in a definite order.

In addition to being three of the best genre movies ever made, they've got three of the most amazing soundtracks ever scored.

I haven't seen X-2, X-3, or the newest Batman or Superman flicks, but for my money, The Incredibles is about 10 times as good as any other super-hero movie ever made.

And you'd be right. Though I might say 2-3 times as good.
