    Default favorite movie of all time

    Hello all!

    I thought it's time to start a classic thread for a change:

    Which is your all-time favorite movie?

    the one movie you can watch over an over again, know almost every line by heart and never grow tired of it?

    Personally, I have a few of those :-) 'High Fidelity' is one of them.

    Let me hear yours!

    De Broca's The King of Hearts with Alan Bates (circa mid-60s) stole my heart in college and is still one of my favorites. To me it's more than just an anti-war film. It exposed a lot of the insanity in our modern bureaucratic society. If you've never seen it - well - you must!

    Hi!

    Maybe they won't be the favourite movies of all time, but I still watch them all the time

    Les rivières pourpres or The Crimson Rivers, with one of my favourite French actors, Jean Reno; and I also love all the French comedy movies such as Mission Cléopâtre with Gérard Depardieu, Christian Clavier and many others.

    Wuthering Heights is another movie that it will always be one of my favourites, with "Sir" Ralph Fiennes and "Mme." Juliette Binoche...

    Greets,

    Faraó

    Mmmm It's a hard choice. My favourite movies are, in general, not very good movies hehe, but I'll name a few (I can't just choose one, sry)

    - Karate Kid. I grew up with a VHS copy of this movie, and I've seen it a looooot of times. I almost knew every dialogue

    - Dawn of the Dead (the remake). The best zombie movie ever. The greatest ending ever. I watch it every time it's on TV

    - Bloodsport. The greatest marcial arts movie ever (sry Bruce Lee, your movies were pretty good too). Van Damme acts like he's paralized, but the fighting is incredible during the whole movie.

    Did you see? None of these won an Academy Award :P, but I watch them every time I can. There are tons of better movies, but the feeling is not the same ^^

    Veronica,

    Jean-Claude Van Damme = muscles from Brussels
    = a compatriot of mine !
    and even apart from that,
    he ranks among the best in his category.

    Grtz.

    He ranks among the best martial artists, but still I don't like the movies...

    I think one's favorite all time movies are the ones from our childhood. I used to watch Starwars, Back to the future, Indiana Jones, Beauty and the beast and Aladdin over and over again. We played a game with my sister: one said a line from a movie and the other had to guess which movie and which character said it.

    See you!
