That sounds really sick coming from Dick Cheney. You really need a new avatar, kid.

I was gonna say JCS based on number of viewings, but I also love A Man for All Seasons, as well as Becket and The Lion in Winter. Stuff like that. Hard to pick just one

what does Dick Cheney have to do with favorite movies? I thought this thread was about favorite movies and not our former vice president...anyway, my favorite is CASABLANCA....followed closely by WHITE CHRISTMAS.

well see, godesses' former avatar was Dick Cheaney. My favorite movie of all time? That's like asking me which of my friends I like better. I like them in different ways. Did recently enjoy "The Fighter" though.

It is about movies. Her previous avatar was Dick Cheney, and it just struck me funny in conjunction with her saying her favorite movie is Jesus Christ Superstar. Her new avatar is a still from that movie, and it's also her avatar on facebook. I did go on to offer three movies to the discussion. Please forgive the digression into avatars, it wasn't meant to be a political comment in any way, sorry if that wasn't clear.

Some like it hot.
Not just because of Marilyn and "I want to be loved by you" and "Nobody's perfect"...though none of that hurts.

Depends on the time of year. Some movies are a tradition in my family. We have to watch White Christmas, but It's a Wonderful Life is depressing. This time of year, Bull Durham and The Natural are dusted off. But the movie (and book) that I most recommend is To Kill a Mockingbird.

No problem, Vickie, just couldn't imagine Cheney as the rock opera type, seems more of an action movie guy. Cracked me up. I've never liked Wizard of Oz, terrified me as a kid, gave me nightmares. I realize it's a classic and lots of people love it, but it always gave me the willies. I second To Kill a Mockingbird, one of the best translations of novel to film ever, in my opinion. Gregory Peck was perfect casting for Atticus Finch.

I love small cast movies. Two of my all-time favorites are Hitchcock's Lifeboat, and the recently departed Sidney Lumet's 12 Angry Men. I'll stop and watch them any time I find them.

I agree that it's hard to pick a favorite. I tend to have favorites in different categories. Favorite classic movie To Kill a Mockingbird, followed by Casablanca, 12 Angry Men, Witness for the Prosecution, Manchurian Candidate...

Favorite drama that's not a classic, Dead Poet's Society.

Favorite comedy Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

I can do that. In no particular order: In Bruges; Snatch; Traffic; Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; Brokeback Mountain; The New World; Love in the Time of Cholera; Serenity; The Kite Runner; Mystic River; The Pianist; Sideways; O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Just off the top of my head.

Way to hard to pick, right off the top. One flew over the cuckoo's nest. Gone with the Wind for classics.
In classic movies anything with Bette Davis. Most recently I have watched the Social Network, and 127
hours both good movies. I have read and seen To Kill a Mockingbird many, many times. Love seeing all
the great movies listed most of the are some of mine too.

Dr Zhivago with Omar Sharif, Julie Christie, Tom Courtenay, Alec Guinness, Geraldine Chaplin, Rod Steiger, Rita Tushingham, Ralph Richardson, and Siobhan McKenna (had to look up the last two) with music (Lara's Theme) by Maurice Jarré

I used to run a bar a good few years back and a friend and I tried this to while away the hours one evening...

13 hours, one evening, a lock-in, most of a morning, several vehement arguments and more beer than I can remember later we finally narrowed our field down to a top 200.

I don't propose to tell you what they were...

However: I love the melodrama of Night of The Hunter with ol' Bob Mitchum, think Duck Soup is the funniest comedy ever put on celluloid and firmly believe that Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movies are the best trilogy ever.

(Although I may have upset a lotta Italian Americans there - which is precisely what started the argument all those years ago! :D )

Lawrence of Arabia for the sheer majesty of a David Lean movie. Masters and Commanders far side of the world, for its
historical accuracy of what it was like on a British frigate circa 17th century. Lost in Translation for comedy, new comedy
Due Date is hilarious, along with The Hangover I have both movies on my computer. Lovvvvvvvvvvvve me some good movies.

That's a tough one. There are so many. To Kill a Mocking Bird, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Dr. Zhivago, Gandhi,Shawshank Redemption (the acting as a whole was outstanding-I couldn't believe how good when I watched it for a second time.), The King's Speech which again features 1st class acting. Films with Sidney Poitier such as In the Heat of the Night.

Erin, yes, the new Star Trek. I know my brother would disagree, but I think it's the best Star Trek movie yet. I know that's sacrilege to many trekkers, but I'm more of a Doctor Who fan anyway.

Another great comedy is Shawn of the Dead. I loves me some Simon Pegg!

Speaking of the incongruity of avatars and messages .... It is weird to see Yoda saying "Hangover".

I'll trying to narrow down the favorite movie now ...

The Lion King, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Forrest Gump, all of The Godfather movies -- especially the first two, the original The Manchurian Candidate, The Color Purple, Funny Girl, The Sound of Music, Chicago, The Music Man, The King and I, Big, Apocalypse Now, Witness for the Prosecution, Jaws, ET, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and The Big Chill. A special out of category honorable mention goes to the television miniseries Lonesome Dove. My guilty pleasure movie is Red Dawn.

WOW! To even have a chance at this I need to pick from a genre. After consideration, I will say my favorite genres are film noir and avant garde.

Gone With the Wind. I know it's a bit old school but I can't help it.
