    The Lord Of The Rings Triliogy, even though the last ones not out yet.. I count it as one movie... Just cause the story was intended to be viewed as one complete book. So the same should apply to the movie.

    >>> Ghulam

    Was one of the films showing at the Copenhagen "Night Film" festival, if I remember correctly - it's a showcase festival for world cinema - many films are free to watch.

    Favourite is hard, as with music, it tends to be a mood thing.

    Spartacus
    Ben Hur
    Star Wars (original)
    Alien (original)
    The Exocist
    The Hunt for Red October
    The Blues Brothers

    ... blah blah
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.

    If I had to take one movie to an island to watch it over and over and over again ?

    Hello Mr. President.

    Maybe original Star Wars

    Die Hard I + II ( not 3 )

    If I want to end my life a bit shorter than it has to be maybe Band of Brothers or Duell - Enemy at the Gates

    There are a lot of great movies out there, but sadly, sometimes not knowing the story ahead of time provides all the suspense. I mean there's no joy in watching Fight Club a fourth or fifth time though it really is a great movie.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    WTF? Sandra Bullock's not in any of those? I'm disappointed, nv.

    It's hard to pick a favorite (I've got probably 60-70 DVDs), but here're a few:
    Casablanca
    Fight Club
    American Beauty
    The Hustler
    Tombstone

    edit: Looks like TechWins has a man-crush on Ed Norton

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    the original star wars movies.
    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    ...

    I conquer with the fact that it's a mood thing, for I would have to pick Monty Python and the Holy Graal(excuse me, holy grail), Congo(bad movie, but I'm growing up with it), Me Myself and Irene(still majoritably the top), Freddy vs. Jason($$$$$), Dogma(hell'a).
