What movie(s) do you think is the best ever made? (besides the python related ones I mean)
Mine are Ferris Bueller's Day off and Dumb and Dumber.

Anything to get off the subject of you know who and Co. :)

Ditto on LOTR Trilogy. Star Wars (the original, unaltered, very 1st experience, sans "Episode IV" above the titles & with the Biggs scene left in). Singing in the Rain (I got more money than Calvin Coolidge, put togither!).

Or, how VERY old am I?

"Rear Window" "Psycho" "City Lights" "The Blues Brothers" "Godfather I & II" "This is Spinal Tap" "Roman Holiday" "On the Waterfront" "Citizen Kane" "2001 A Space Oddessy" "Spartacus" "Patton" "Young Frankenstein" How about regular old "Frankenstein" and I don't mean Kenneth Branagh's

Haven't scratched the surface!

Okay, how 'bout "Pulp Fiction"? You've seen THAT, right?


Yours sincerely,

There's a difference between one's "favorite movies" & "the best ever made". By "favorite", I would list those movies I could watch over & over & over again. The "best ever made" do not necessarily fit into that category -- also a highly subjective judgement in any case, but you could probably just look at the AFI (or BFI?) list of top 100 films.

If you would like to see more "classics" on the list, some of my favorites would be "The Thin Man" (1934), "My Man Godfrey" (1936, heck, almost anything with William Powell), "Fantasia" (1940), "It's Always Fair Weather" (1955 -- mainly for the rollerskate routine), "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962), "The Lion in Winter" (1968) & "Vanishing Point" (1974).

Love Pyscho and spinal tap is pure comedy genius. "Listen to what the flower people Say" Brilliant.
Talking of Frankenstein, how about Young frankenstein with Gene Wilder, brilliant actor: Willy Wonka, Blazing saddles etc.
Re: Favorite Movies by Godfather on 24 July 2004 2:33am
The Wicker Man,The Hill,Lawrence of Arabia,Ben Hur,Amadeus,Altered States,Basic Instinct,Star Trek II Wrath of Khan,American Beauty,Hunt for Red October,Patriot Games,The Godfather,Godfather II,Life of Brian (sorry,but could'nt refrain from mentioning a python one in my list),are just some films i love. Many others, but it's 1:00am and my mind is not quite clear.

Must sleeeeep...s..l..e..e..p

Ditto on Psycho and Spinal Tap, I saw Psycho for English, so I'm kinda an expert on it =D

Other ones I'd include would be the James Bond films (used to be a big buff), MP movies (of course), Brazil, Death of a Salesman (I'm sure the play was better but Dustin Hoffman is great as Willy Loman), uh, Mo' Better Blues... argh, can't think of any more.

>>>mainly for the rollerskate routine<<<

Xanadu? LOL!
