All time? This year? For me a film has to maintain re-watchability for it to get ranked in my favorites and IMO my most "rewatchable" films have to be:

Shaun of the Dead
Pineapple Express
Anything by Martin Scorcese
Anything by Guy Ritchie

I have alot, but here are some

The Other Guys
Silent Hill
Kill Bill
Shaun of the Dead
Dawn of the Dead
The Dark Knight

The Other Guys was awesome. IMO any Will Ferrel raunch-comedy can be a favorite of mine (Anchorman, Step Brothers)

Gotta love New Kids Turbo, best Dutch movie made.EVER.
Though it isn't my all-time favorite, the following movies are all way better:

The Other Guys
The Kingdom
The Dark Knight
Rush Hour (all 3 parts, I could watch these films over and over)
I Am Legend

For me a film has to maintain re-watchability for it to get ranked in my favorites and IMO my most "rewatchable" films have to be:

Shaun of the Dead

I've seen Shaun if the dead twice, it was fun the first time, but I'd give it a zero for "re-watchability"

Wow. Well, to each their own. There are just so many layers of jokes there. But I love brit comedies. I love all the films on your list but I don't know that I can rewatch Rush Hour 3.

Thelma & Louise or Shelter.

Thelma & Louise reminds me of an old friendship I have with my friend Alex, and Shelter is just a heartfelt sweet movie.

The Little Mermaid~

This was the movie that defined my childhood, so innocent and romantic. It, quite simply, is the best movie ever made in my opinion. Oh Ariel <3

>Inglorious Bastards

And so on.

I like horror films such as The Grudge and I knew what you did last summer. I also like American Pie series, Salt, Inception and Tourist.

January 12th, 2011, 4:38 PM
I hold an endless love for The Road to El Dorado. Kids movies are the greatest.

Other than that, I really enjoyed Cloverfield, but Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Mulholland Drive are probably the ones fighting for the first place, along with As It Is In Heaven. I enjoy quiet, slightly eerie movies.

January 12th, 2011, 9:10 PM
The Lord of The Rings trilogy, they're just fantastic films and prove that books can indeed be faithfully turned into films. The newest Star Trek film is also one I can watch many times without ever tiring of it.

January 13th, 2011, 7:45 AM
My favorite movie of all time will have to be the Lion King. I love everything about it and it was one of my childhood favorites.

January 15th, 2011, 12:42 PM
For a long time I liked "The Sound of Music" and "Project A". But now I don't watch a lot of films, so I can't really decide on a "favourite".

My top five movies (in order) are: The Bucket List, Inception, I Love You Man, The Dark Knight, Anchorman. The Bucket List, just because it really gets to me, Inception because it had amazing action scenes and a great concept, I Love You, Man because it was hilarious, The Dark Knight because it had a good concept and very well played characters, and Anchorman because it's a classic.

January 15th, 2011, 6:16 PM

- Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

These are all movies that have infinite watch-ability for me.

I'm not very picky when it comes to movies. I think film critics take movies far too seriously. I would consider any John Hughes movie to be my favorite, especially Planes, Trains, and Automobiles and Home Alone.

January 18th, 2011, 7:39 PM
I will just go a couple that are not series(unless you include The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly as a series since the Man with No Name is in two previous movies.)

The Departed
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
Forrest Gump
Pulp Fiction
Dazed and Confused
Old School
American History X
The Patriot

January 19th, 2011, 2:15 AM

Gods and Generals
True Grit (the original)
The alamo (the original)

Dancer in the Dark is beautiful. I also love Kill Bill vol. 1 & 2, Eraserhead, Black Swan, The Beales of Grey Gardens, Shaun of the Dead, Gummo, Factory Girl, Monster, Hard Candy, etc.

February 12th, 2011, 2:56 PM
X-Men: The last Stand. I dont care what others say, I effing loved that movie, also X2 and X-Men. Mutant Nerd alert! and I just saw the new X-Men: First Class trailer and it is awesome. Im really excited for it to come out, which is the day before graduation ^^

February 12th, 2011, 3:18 PM
The Godfather.
This Is England.
Phone Booth.
Shaun of the Dead.

Those are the ones that come to mind.

February 12th, 2011, 3:53 PM
My number one movie right now is definitely Scott Pilgrim VS The World. It was so wonderfully executed, and so wonderfully entertaining!

"I lesbian you."

February 12th, 2011, 4:09 PM
There are a lot of great films posted already. My top five goes something like..

- Dazed and Confused
- Inception
- Titanic
- Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
- Step Brothers

February 12th, 2011, 4:16 PM
Never been much of a movie person. Heavyweights is a childhood favorite of mine, and Schlinder's List left a strong impression on me, so it's probably those two.

February 19th, 2011, 6:37 AM
Titanic, Alice in Wonderland, Rome + Juliet, Da Vinci Code, Angels vs Demons, Tangled, A Walk to Remember, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Friendship, they're the unforgetable ones.

February 19th, 2011, 12:53 PM
My two favorite films are Coraline, Benny & Joon, The Uninvited, Pam's Labyrinth, and Good Burger.

Coraline is a masterpiece in my opinion. The art is so vivid and intricate and it's claymation. It boggles my mind that they did it as well as I they did. I think it deserves an Oscar. The movie itself is just... so me. I have a love of dark things and of cute things. So Coraline is literally perfect for me.

February 19th, 2011, 12:53 PM
I'm super picky with movies, and I only like a few. My all time favorites are:

Inglourious Basterds
The Breakfast Club
Forrest Gump
Memoirs of a Geisha (even though I prefer the book)

there are some others that I enjoy when they're on like Legally Blonde, Role Models, Austin Powers, and Kicking and Screaming. But those others are the ones I love the most.

February 25th, 2011, 5:11 PM
I love to watch movies, so my favourite ones changes from time to time, but I will not forget A Walk To Remember and Titanic! Those movie made me cry! <3

February 28th, 2011, 1:00 PM
I have loads, but Goldeneye is one of my all time favourite films :D

The Seven Samurai. It manages to be both over-the-top and fun whilst also being deep and contemplative. The dialogue is witty, the cinematography is beautiful and the fights are perfectly choreographed. It's just a spectacular movie.

God, this is going to make me feel older than I am... My favourite film is the 1976 satire/horribly-real-drama Network.

I heartily recommend it, but hesitate to tell people what it's about as part of the fun involves getting swept away with the plot. On a purely cinematic level, however, it has ridiculously fine acting from Peter Finch, Faye Dunaway and William Holden, potent direction and cinematography, not to mention probably the best script ever written by the master that is Paddy Chayefsky. Other films may be technically 'better', but none can hold a personal candle to Network in my eyes.

Well from a position of naming one off the top of my head, it would go to The Lion King, only because the plot, soundtrack and everything is amazing and I love it. I love it as a soundtrack and as a piece of musical theatre, so for it as a film, it kinda immediately jumps to the top.

That said, looking back even just over the end of last year, films like Tangled and Inception I found so well made and entertaining in their own ways, that I'd definitely mention them!

Oh! And I love 300 so much as well! The special effects / editing in that film is fierce, ridiculously fierce and wonderfully composed!

So yeah, Lion King, Inception, 300 and Tangled come to mind.

My favorites are Swing Kids, The Lion King, and A Series of Unfortunate Events. Swing Kids is really good because I just love the story. It's about kids who live in Nazi Germany and rebel against the laws, but then they start to become enemies after they join the HJ and some of them end up not wanting to rebel anymore. The Lion King is pretty obvious, since the soundtrack is amazing and the plot is sad. A Series of Unfortunate Events is underrated in my opinion, the settings were really amazing and kept my attention. It had a dark feeling to it, yet had its funny moments.
