Kiki's assessment of great movies got me wondering what movies she actually likes and I guess I shouldn't just single her out, so everyone tell us what your favorite movies are. I guess a top 10 list would be good, but I wouldn't want to limit it to that or require that.

I'm assembling a list of my own. I'll get back to you.

My favourite alltime list is full of fairly shitty movies, but I love things I can watch again and again and not get bored:

Beauty and the beast
Bridget Jones I & II
Legally Blonde I & II
Office space
Clerks
The Blind Side (always a good tear jerker)
Withnail and I (good call for all you Americans who may not be familiar with it)
Godfather I & II


I don't have the patience for many films anymore, I usually only watch probably 1 or 2 a year now. I do love any documentary though, the subject doesn't matter to me so long as it's well done.

I feel that way about Napoleon Dynamite.

I didn't mind ND, laughed a little bit, but I wouldn't watch it many more times. I think with Into the wild it was the stupidity of the subject matter that made me hate it. I can never get over situations like in horror movies where people make very stupid decisions, and into the wild was just a real life example of being an idiot. I didn't feel bad at all, I thought he was a naive imbecile.

We probably have but I couldn't find it in my really really quick search, so I thought I'd grill you again. It doesn't matter, all of us change our minds from time to time and we have a lot of new members. Your list is pretty good IMO, but you have some heavy stuff there, like I never ever want to watch Requiem for a Dream again. Well done, but depressing as hell.

Yes it was disturbing, my top 3 films are pure mind fucks.

Also, I should have added Black Swan. Loved that film.
