Okay, I'm just gonna go out right now and list my favorite movies of all time, in no particular order:
Zoolander
The Departed
Fight Club
The Dark Knight
Kung Pow
...And pretty much everything by Monty Python

Oh man, who here is cool and/or old enough to remember Zoolander?

I have Zoolander on DVD.

My favourites, for various reasons (including "sheer entertainment") are:

Fido
The Zero Effect
Star Wars (the actual movie, "Star Wars", and not the sequels, nor the prequels)
Bon Cop, Bad Cop
Blow Dry
Galaxy Quest (I have a crush on Alan Rickman)
Bubba Ho-Tep
Donnie Darko
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Fight Club
The Princess Bride
Shaun of the Dead
Unbreakable

Off the top of my head, anyway ^_^

Oh, I'm not sure if it's technically a movie, but I have 'The complete works of Shakespeare (abridged)' on DVD, by the reduced Shakespeare company. They're a comedy troupe that does satire about Shakespeare. It's hilarious
Macbeth
Othello

I haven't finished to comic book yet, but I greatly enjoyed the movie. There was violence and nudity. What's not to like? :lol:

Seriously though, I've heard a lot of the comic book fans disparaging because it apparently changed the ending, but I don't know how as I've refrained from reading spoilers of the comic book, and so don't know what changed. I'm halfway through now, and just about everything is really spot on.

Ooh, I saw this movie recently! Wouldn't call it a favorite though.

Of course, we all agree that Star Wars,The Godfather and The Matrix were the best trilogies ever.
I think Lord Of The Rings and Star Wars prequel trilogies still come in the top 10, too.
Because think trilogies can't be considered along single movies.

My brother says The Untouchables is pretty epic, and it is pretty epic.
I also liked Resident Evil 1&2. (Haven't seen 3 yet though.)
I'm gender-ambiguous. :D

"We all" referring to you, right? ;) I like Star Wars, tolerated Empire and Jedi for the sake of Darth Vader and Han Solo; and the other three can rot in their canisters. The first Godfather movie was good; the other two, meh. More of the same. The Matrix... the movies were visually stunning. Keanu Reeves did his job (look good in black). But they are far from my favourites and I wouldn't rank them particularly high. The plots (as such) were too predictable. For me.

I hated the Lord of the Rings books so much that I have never seen the movies; don't plan on it, either :? And my opinion of the Star Wars prequels has already been stated.

Too lazy to quote everyone, so here we go:

-The Matrix trilogy is not in the same league with Star Wars or Godfather. Fact.

-Shaun of the Dead is hilarious, but Hot Fuzz is better. :)

-The colors in Zoolander bother me.

-Yes, yes, Rorschach is awesome, huhn hurm vurt milp gloon.
