OK, give us your rundown of your three favourite films, with quick reasons why you love 'em...

In at number three, it's 'Being John Malkovich,' Bizarre, darkly humourous, a dissection of modern society's attitudes towards privacy, aging and celebrity done in a way you'd never have thought of.

Climbing to number two, we have 'X-Men 2.' OK, switch off your brain for an hour and a half and let the good times roll. Improves upon the first, rewrites how a comic-book conversion should be done and stays true to the spirit and storylines of it's inspiration (Spiderman 2 take note...).

But at number 1, it's 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy. as it was filmed as a single film, it deserves to have all three parts lumped in together, but everything about this film is amazing. The best actors, amazing scenery and effects, almost all of the original story is at least touched upon, and more extras on the special edition DVDs than you can shake a hobbit at.

My Precioussssssssssssssss...........

My 3 favourite filsm would be:

3) Platoon. The film is set in the vietnam war and it tells the tale of one GRUNT soldier who comes to term with the attrocites of the war. Its set like a diary....and it basicaly tell you that all the people he has known has died in the Vietnam War.

2) Human Traffic. The reason why i like this British Film is becuase its set in Manchester and its about a group of friends who go out for the weekend and just live for the music and beer and Drugs. The reaon why i like this film is becuase i can relate to it...by the sence of i have very similar friends who are like this. For example we all like going out and getting drunk...and also we occasinaly have the odd Joint (which isnt a crime i must add). Also one of the character in the film is an absolutely f*ck head by that i mean he f*cked in the head..and i have one mate whos like that.

1) Boyz N the Hood. The reason why i like this film...is not becuase its gangsta thug, but also he shows the true harsh realites of how people live in South Central and that being a Thug is not good at all.
It tells the tale of 3 boys growing up in Crenshaw just outside Compton, and how each one gets effected bt gang violence.

WHAT, that Jap film with the hot Japanese schoolgirls in skimpy outfits killing each other? I've seen a few clips, but I'd probably never watch it.

(I probably will update this)

2) James Bond films
With the exception of On Her Majesty's Secret Service and the godawful Die Another Day, Mr Bond has proved quite the money-maker in my opinion.

1) Lord Of The Rings Trilogy
Greatest book-to-movie transition EVER. Kudos to Peter Jackson!! cool.gif

Does it have to be just three? that makes it kinda hard.

1. LOTR trilogy; this is the same as alot of other people said, but if you reckon you don't at the very least like these films alot; I can only assume you must be lying, it seems like madness to me, but I grew up reading Tolkien so i'm biased.

2. True Romance; By far my fave Tarantino film (He didn't direct it, but he wrote the screenplay)

3. It's a tie between The Evil Dead Trilogy and the Living Dead films, simply because i'm a Horror fan and these two trilogies are seminal imo.

3.Fear of a Black Hat
This movie is so hilarious. Its a parody of the early 90's rap scene. I think im like the only person thas ever seen it besides my brother. If you like old school hip-hop and comedy this is a great movie!
2.Tupac Ressurection
This feature film biography of Tupac Shakur is told thru his own words with interviews and songs he did before untimely death. If you are a fan of his or even liked a song or movie by him you should really see this film.
1.Scarface
Do I really hafta say why?
