    I find it hard to believe that nobody has mentioned this one but my favorite is "Saving Private Ryan".

    Also one of my faves. Looks great on blue-ray. But I'd have to go with "Sunset Boulevard." The Waxman score stands out.

    Ben-Hur or LoTR/Hobbit - Adventure
    Pulp Fiction - Comedy
    The Fifth Element or The Forbidden Planet- Sci-Fi
    Kill Bill 1 and 2 - Action

    If I could only pick 1 I guess The Fifth Element is closer to my heart than Ben-Hur but it's really tough.

    This is an impossible question. I have different favorites depending on different moods. Ask me for my favorite comedy or favorite action/adventure or favorite romance movie and you'll get three different answers.

    But if I am forced to pick one, I'll go old school for its story telling, innovation and ability to suck you into the screen: King Kong (1933)

    The original Conan the Barbarian was the best movie ever made while Conan the Destroyer was the worst.

    Good choice. On the innovation front, i'd have to give alot of props to Wizard of Oz too. Still a classic to this day.

    Yeah. I still prefer the original over the remake. I guess that could be a generational thing though. Hard for me to see anyone but Arnold as Conan. Red Sonya was good too.

    The recent version wasn't bad but it didn't compare to the original.

    I'll watch any James Bond 007 movie - in fact - the wife and me just watched the latest at the cinema yesterday - we thought it was well done, with some well done transitions for contuing with Daniel Craig.

    I also like just about any of the Marvel movies, Animal House was a favorite of mine, any of the Star Trek movies (including the Chris Pine one), Star Wars Ep4 (although I'll watch any of them).

    Hopefully you mean any Marvel movies post The Hulk reboot, as I believe it was the first done by Marvel Studios. That's one thing i'll give credit to Disney for. They saved Marvel, gave them their own studio and said 'her's our money, you do the movies'. No more bastardizing of thier characters. Since Marvel began doing their own movies they have been excellent and shown that you can stay TRUE to the comic and still make movies that casual fans enjoy. Thanks to Disney, they no longer have to answer to studios of Hollywood.

    Something Warner Brother's will never learn with DC I fear. :nono2:

    Does anyone happen to know when/if Marvel can get the movie rights back for Spiderman (Sony I believe?) and X-Men (Fox I believe?). I think they finally got Punisher back.

    Yeah...that's my #2 behind The Natural.

    I've probably seen both of those more than 25 times and still love watching them.

    I agree with Rich and trh about Open Range and Blazing Saddles but I'd also consider any of the more recent Clint Eastwood movies or The World's Fastest Indian. The Hunt for Red October is in the top ten.

    My favorite movie of all time would have to be "The Man from Earth" look it up on imdb and youtube. It's the best scifi movie of all time that doesn't have special effects, but the suspense is mind blowing.
