Your favorite movie of all times

Everyone has a movie (if you love movies) that one likes above all other
movies.
I am curious what movie that is.

For me it is 2001:A Space Odessey.
An absolut remarkeble movie and so realistic in its presentation.
For example, in space there is no sound. Well, there are parts in the
movie where the breathing is voiced so the attention is directed to that
person.
Considering that the movie was shot before a man put his foot on to the
moon, it is even today realistic.
Also there is no conclusion. So everyone can speculate what the meaning
of the movie actually is.
I really do miss Kubric, one of the real great directors that wandered on
earth.
Some of the things shown have not materialized so far. There is for
example no computer that has a real A.I. to speak off. At least not in
the common household.
Also, we do not have a space station that generates its own gravity so
far and to Jupiter we weren’t either.
But what this movie really creates for me is the notion from where we
came, what we become and where we may be going.
At the time the movie came out i was just born but i went to see it in
the late 70s. Now i have it on Blue Ray and it is worth it. Hey i can
even see it in my language and with that Haenschen Klein singing from
HAL. I wasn’t aware that he actually sang Daisy which i don’t know at all.

Well, what is your favorite movie above all others. Do you have one? This
is the one i truely have in my heart.

Have a nice day

Back to the Future (Part 1) is by far my most favorite movie ever and the trilogy being my favorite family of movies ever. I thought the characters were very well developed, great action scenes with just enough suspense sprinkled in. It spoke to the geek in me and I loved the car. The DeLorean is, in my opinion the coolest car ever. I like fun movies that leave me happy at the end. Nothing beats Back to the Future for me.

+1. I must have watched it more than two dozen times since I was a kid.

Hmm. I think I’ll go get the DVD in the cupboard…

But To kill a Mockingbird is a serious contender.

And All That Jazz. And Cabaret. And…

And Young Frankenstein.

And Lawrence of Arabia.

Perhaps we should qualify by genre: SF, Drama, Musical, Comedy, etc.

Oh, and Rollerball (the one with James Caan).

I’ll not even pretend to be intellectual about this. And add the fact that we don’t even have TV in our house. But from what I have seen:

If I’m Adult about it: 2 films I seen more than once and quite enjoyed: Sneakers and The Firm

Otherwise mode: Dude Where’s My Car

I also enjoyed The Girl Next Door and American Pie (first 3 parts). I also have to mention The Lion King for the best animated movie ever.

Best regards,
Greg

I’m sorry but I can’t choose an all-time favourite. It certainly
wouldn’t be 2001; saw it once and that was once too often.

Here’s a list -

SF:
Forbidden Planet [Notable for stunning special effects and Anne Francis
in a mini-dress several years before they were invented. I was 12 when
it was released and it made a powerful impression on me.]
The Day the Earth Stood Still [with Michael Rennie]

Western:
High Noon
Shane
Rio Bravo
For a Few Dollars More

Comedy:
Bringing up Baby
What’s up, Doc?
It Happened One Night
His Girl Friday

Thriller:
Rear Window
North by Northwest
African Queen
Casablanca
The Third Man

Animation:
Toy Story
Wall-E
Dumbo
Fantasia

Family:
It’s a Wonderful Life

War:
The Dam Busters [1955]
A Matter of Life and Death
The Hiding Place

The list is far from complete; I’m getting flashbacks and flickering
images of movies that make me think,“that was a great one, now what was
it called?” before it disappears from memory to be replaced by another.

Having now compiled the list, if I was forced into only selecting one, I
think it would have to be Casablanca.

Seven Beauties

I love movies or shows on temporal mechanics. For those not familiar with that, that’s time travel. I enjoy most science/science fiction movies. I do think that science fiction should be renames to science future or something like that. I have a hard time picking just one movie. I love anything Dr. Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, and many others. I also enjoy Die Hard, and a lot of action films. Commedy and romance are not my thing. As far as commedy, perhaps when God was handing out humor, I mistook it for something else and said I’ll pass. I love educational stuff. I love watching the Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, The Science Channel, and other channels like that.

So, there are so many good movies out there to select from AND the listing by Cloddy includes many of mine, but if I have to pick only one, then it must be:

Thank You,

You can’t beat the oldies - Casablanca, High Noon, Stagecoach, The Third Man (Oh that zither music!!)

But of the more recent CGI ones, it’s got to be the Lord of the Rings and Avatar.

And for real action give me Bruce Lee any time.

Another golden oldie, /The Thin Man/:
Nick and Nora are having breakfast (Martinis) and reading in the
newspapers about their previous day’s adventures where bullets were flying.
Nora: “It says you were shot twice in the tabloids.”
Nick: “They never came near my tabloids.”
[That was pre-Hays Act, of course]

Another I forgot, /Laura/, where a detective is called to a murder and
falls in love with the victim!
(Oh that theme music!! Oh that Gene Tierney!!:

This is a hard one for me since i like movies from all genres… Lets see: for effects and action i like Matrix (the first movie), for a good Sci-Fi Stargate and the series SG-1, cartoons the “Cars” movies look nice to me of Tom and Jerry, something a bit emotional and in way educational is “A walk to remember”… an so on :slight_smile:

There are a lot of replys and i know it is hard to make a choice of the
best in once personal opinion.
I still think that there is one that ranks above others.

I have of course more movies i really like, but now i judge a movie on
things like what the message is. Can i get the meaning of the movie and
so on.
2001 is one of the movies where you can speculate which i find very
entertaining.
I do like mostly horror movies or b-movies. But most mentioned are on my
list as well.

Very hard choice indeed. :slight_smile:

I couldn’t pick just one.

My list of favourites includes (in no particular order):

  1. The LOTR films (extended editions, just watched them all yesterday -
    it’s an annual thing for us)

  2. The Pirates movies (first three at least, only seen #4 once)

  3. The Bourne movies

  4. The Producers

  5. Aliens

  6. Monsters, Inc.

  7. Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear & Present Danger

  8. Crimson Tide

  9. A Few Good Men

  10. The Crow (just the first one, nobody can touch Brandon Lee’s
    interpretation of the role)

  11. Both of the new Sherlock Holmes films

I’m probably forgetting lots. :slight_smile:

“The Lives of Others” was fantastic! Also, “White” was excellent.

I’m not a huge fan of movies and not watched a lot of movies till a day…but Titanic is one of mine favorite romantic movie ever in my life…
