    What's your favorite movie ever?

    The "worst movie" thread made me think of this: What's your favorite movie ever, and why?

    Mine is the Sound of Music. I liked how it started out as a romantic comedy but then turned into a chase thriller. It was funny how the Abbess told Maria that the abbey was not a place to hide from problems, so the obvious Godwin's Law retort would have been "yeah but what if Nazis came along?" and sure enough later when Nazis were the problem the abbey turned out to be the perfect place to hide from them.

    I'm a movie buff, and I have a lot of movies I love. But if I had to pick one, I'd say 'American Beauty.'

    It's too tough for me to pick just one favorite, I have favorites in almost every genre.

    Well since it is Christmas time I have to go with............. A Christmas Story with poor little Ralphie and his Red Rider BB gun. I have watched it about six times in a row, since TBS plays it non stop on Christmas Eve into Christmas Day.

    I just can't get enough of The Departed. I'm a big fan of Martin Scorcese. Goodfellas, Bringing out the Dead, Gangs of New York are all on my top movies list too...

    The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

    I have different favorites depending on my mood! If I'm angry or having a bad day, I like to watch The Craft. If I want something funny I like Charlotte's Web (either version), If I want to relax, I like Phantom of the Opera.

    I like good old fashioned musicals, and movies about music or dancing. Stomp The Yard and Drumline are two really good recentish ones that I really liked.

    Depends on the day. Since it's Christmas time, my favorite is "The Ref". That movie cracks me up.

    The Goonies, no doubt about it. The only reason I don't have it on DVD is because I already watch it at least six times a year on cable TV.

    All of those are great - one of my favorite Orson Welles films is "A Touch of Evil." Last night I watched another one of my favorites, it's a French film called "The Dinner Game." It is absolutely hilarious.
