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 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 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.

reason, gore gore and fucking more gore. a must see.

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.

In Order From My Favorite
Taxi Driver
Pulp Fiction
Godfather 2
Kill Bill Vol. 2
Jackie Brown
Once Upon A Time In America
Donnie Brasco
Kill Bill Vol. 1
Resevoir Dogs
OK, my number two slot (X-Men 2) has been officially owned by a fantastic movie I've just seen...

The Butterfly Effect

A technically simple chaos theory-related concept that is immensely complex when gotten into in any detail, this movie handles it masterfully, with every base covered and a slick ending.

Garfield, which I also watched today, wasn't worth my ticket price, unfortunately.
@ Austin: Wow I can't believe I forgot about Instinct; I saw it a little while back on ITV2 and I have to agree that is an excellent film, as usual Anthony Hopkins pwned. Another of my favourite films is Gorillas In The Mist, if you haven't seen it; it's a true story and imo it addresses an issue that is not taken seriously enough: poaching, more specifically poaching of Mountain Gorillas, a species which is fast approaching extinction.
the first matrix was a good movie but , the 2 after where only fighting , the story was weak at the end ,

monthy python and the holy grail , but i was pissed at the end ,

braveheart , wasn't weak but a little bit to cliché with the freedom thing ,

instinct didn't sucked but it's a long time since i saw it

gangs of new york , not to bad but i hate leonardo di caprio

jay and silent bob strikes back : excuse me who's watching these kids , the fat one is watching the little on biggrin.gif , best comedy ever

pulp fiction ruled , the sm part was very funny

american history x : great movie

the lord of the rings : it was just ww2 in tolkiens vision , but it wasn't to bad

titanic - no just kidding , the only reason that i was wheeping was because i had to take a pis pretty urgent
Passionate Homo Sapiens Ingester
in at no 1

monty python- life of brian [best movie evar, no doubt, stfu noobettes]

braveheart-[i hear ya stan stfu eng biggrin.gif]

teh godfather-["mumblemumbledontfuckmydaughtermumble"]

also nominated:
pulp fiction, scarface

@mceggy- my grandma was the last in a long line of pure bred scottish wallaces.. maybe were 300th cousins?

o and selpy and dunpeal u watch 2 many movies..
School Of Rock because Is Has the Best Soundtrack ever
The Godfather Series
This was one of the best directed movie at the time, and the Sicilian culture, life, and language was displayed and portrayed very well. I was also directed by the author of The Godfather novels, Mario Puzo. The cast of the actors was especially appropriate for the movie (De Niro!), and the plot was heavy and deep. Btw I'm Italian/Sicilian!

28 Days Later
My gosh! This was the first movie that I have ever seen about zombies, that I actually enjoyed and watched plenty times more! The plot is sort of generic, but if you watched the movie yourself you will find plenty disturbing twists near the end. The movie was written and directed by Danny Boyle, also did Trainspotting, and trust me this guy is one helluva director in the UK! This movie introduced a fear that most movies today never grasped, that is the fear of reality--you are one of the only few humans alive from a deadly virus, entitled "Rage", and safety, survival, and the answer to the infection are the only plans of the rest of your life. 28 Days Later is the time it takes for the zombies to sufficate and die. Great movie if you have a taste in them.

Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Well, I never read the books but I can say many a people I know have acknowledged that Peter Jackson, the director, followed the book very well! There are three movies in this trilogy so far (rumour of The Hobbit remake) and each one will give you something immense to fantasize about them! The first one would be the "Eagle" that Gandalf rides off from the tower of Saruman, who kicked Gandalf's ass, to catch up with Frodo and the other Hobbits. The second, The Two Towers, offers the best scene in all of the movies--Gandalf hacking, slashing, and stabbing the fucking shit out of the fire demon, who dragged him into "darkness". All-the-while Gandalf is kicking major ass, he's falling into a deep underwater cave, floating in the air! Later in the film is shows that Gandalf trekked all the way to the highest cliff the "smote his ruin [fire demon] among the mountainside." The third movie, The Return of the King, shows off what Legolas is really made of by killing a whole Oliphaunt all by himself! Style is apparently present also (he jumps off the Oliphaunt and slides down its trunk until he lifts into air and lands softly--Gimli adds some humor to this also!). Overall, the action, SFX, plot, characters, creatures, settings, and acting all made this trilogy one that cannot be matched by any!

I'm pretty sure that's a review too, in a way!
Gold:Terminator 2
Silver:Resevoir Dogs
Bronze:Die Hard

Runners Up:
Old School
Reindeer Games
dawn of the Dead
Napoleon Dynamite is the greatest movie ever. i have went and seen it like 5 times

and like adanac i like dawn of the dead (the 70s version not the new 1)
1. Scarface- Dont really have to explain this because anyone who has seen it knows what i mean.

2. Terminator trilogy

3. Full Metal Jacket- To me it just seemed like one of the most realistic military movies and how things worked in its day. Besides Saving Private Ryan.
Why does every dumbass who watches Braveheart decide their gonna dislike the English...? The events in Braveheart happened 800 years ago and it's not our fault our King was a tyrant.

Braveheart is a good film, but the modern day English aren't like the English 800 years ago ok mad.gif
Bluntman & Chronic
Hmm... It is actually very difficult for me to list my favorite movies (it changes all the time). So, as of right now, here are my all-time favorites:

3) A Clockwork Orange - Stanley Kubrick is a genius!
2) The Usual Suspects - I just love plot twists... Who is Keyser Soze?
1) Fight Club - Once again, a flick with a twist! And some great performances here...

BTW- Next time, let us pick more than three!
Stan Petrov
by calling me a dumbass for celebrating the story of my independance,Austin,Im glad you watched all your English cousins being killed clap.gif

Same old England,always cryin mad.gif
no.. I called anyone who watched Braveheart and then decides to dislike the modern day English, a dumbass.

I presume you disliked the English before you watched Braveheart, as most Scots seem to do.

And you guys cant talk about crying tongue.gif
Last Caress
1) Donnie Darko-- There was just something about it. It had a twist and a spice of comedy. I laughed and was glued to the TV screen.

2) Blow-- Johnny Depp is an amazing actor. He just never ceases to amaze me. I can't even explain why I like this movie so much. It just had me interested.

3) LOTR Trilogy-- I thought the story was amazing. The movies are just incredible. Lots of action, drama, some comedy and good acting as well.

1. The Matrix- Class

2.The Shawshank Redemption- Beautifuly done

3.Life Of Brain- he is not the messiah

4.The Holy Grail- just for the scene with god in it

5.Star Wars Trilogy-fantastic
