    I like Pulp Fiction... Not sure if I'd say it's my favourite, but I like it.

    Characters, plot, dialogue. It was perfect. All the movie tried to do was present a bunch of CRAP as you might find in a seedy novel, and it did that wonderfully.

    the lord of the rings. i have loved the book since childhood and this was done about as close to the book as possible, everything about it was how i imagined it would be like, such an amazing film and the effects were awesome.
    i have the extended dvds with all the extras which are really interesting too.

    then i have to go for the breakfast club, but thats only coz i have fancied Molly Ringwald for years lol.

    I'm with Andy on this. I first read Lord of the Rings many years ago and was a bit dubious about an attempt to make it into a film but I think they did a brilliant job. Still think the book is better though.:smile:

    seems to be one of those movies where you either love it or dont think much of it. Only movie I've ever watched 5 times consecutively.

    By mentioning just one far too many are left out, it's not fair!

    So I'll say the first among my many favorites that springs to mind:

    Harold & Maude

    Poetry in motion. Excellent script, casting, acting, photography, deeply meaningful and last but not least amazing music soundtrack by Cat Stevens.

    May I add another one please?
    Over The Edge

    The best youth movie I have ever seen, expressing without compromise teenage distress, anger, frustration, all matched by a great music soundtrack of the time. The last 5 minutes into the ending credits always make me cry at the sound of Valerie Carter's "Ooh Child".

    I could add more and more but I better stop here for now.

    its not my favourite but i got a hankering to watch mulholland drive again, i never did truely get it te first time, its a david lynch film so in popular circles i believe im forgiven for not fully taking it all in as his films are quite complex and subtle

    i love romantic movies with a little bit of fantasy to it. I loved the acting in both...and how they were kind of child like...I miss my childhood dreams.
