    I don't really have any "favorite" movies, but I really like The fast and the furious 3, which happens to be the last movie I saw.

    Try watching Memento. I think you'd like it cause you'd definitely relate to it.

    >> Pulp Fiction. Donnie Dark is really awesome too.

    Yeah! I like pi too ... am, I like the lord of the rings (see sig). I like this link (Donnie Darko Memorable Quotes - "Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion", HAHAHAHA). Fight club rocks too, the shining wasn't nearly as good as the book, The Green Mile was OK I guess, the Shawshank Redemption was very good.

    Pulp Fiction just rocks. A lot of good memories (ain't seen it for like 2 years). That tasty burger clip... is that where some guy bursts out of the toilet with a .44 (or something very revolver-y and big) and completely misses with all 6? I forget exactly
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    That's the beginning The Bonnie Situation. It starts out at the end of the scene I posted but is way later in the movie from the scene I posted. To summerize, the "tasty burger" scene is where Jules and Vincent go to pick up Marcelles' briefcase from the guys who screwed up the operation.

    I'm familiar with the name, but if it is a movie about racing, know just one thing:
    Racing is not something I really really love. In fact, I never liked it and pretty much hated it. But then I started to learn to drive, and now its a lot more interesting (I also play Need for speed, Toca race driver which is too realistic).

    Well, you're in luck. It has nothing to do with racing. Rent it sometime.

    I've seen tons of movies but those are ALWAYS my top 3. Another movie I liked alot was V for Vendetta, which just HAPPENS to be from the creators of The Matrix . Oh looks like a lot of people agree with me on The Matrix part. So in the words of Howard Dean, "Byaah!"

    EDIT:
    I see a lot of people talk about Pulp Fiction and I haven't seen it. Do you think it's worth a look? What kind of movie is it?

    I don't

    Matrix for me was a series of cheap philosophy coupled with bad dialogs. Just an attempt at putting to movie one of the most ancient philosophies (that which we all are a dream of some higher being) and place it in a post modern world.

    I also couldn't stand those "Oh It hurts so much to love you" type-of relationship between the two main characters. I mean... c'mon! Lighten up! It's reminiscent of those film noir and the femme fatale versus absent minded stylish hero. *watch out, I'm feeling sick now*

    Nice SF though. What really saved the movie. The rest was... boring. What was it? 4 movies right? On all of them Neo with a Duh! expression and whats-her-name taking him by the hand.

    I and several others have considered it one of the greatest movies they've ever seen... ... yeah I think it's worth a look.

    While I did like the first of The Matrix trilogy (which is the only one I've seen others mention here), I though two was mediocre and three was just rubbish. You can over analyse the plot all you want it was still lousy. In your defense, though, I can see some movies in this post that are certainly worse than The Matrix.

    Oh, if you want to know what Pulp Fiction is like, you can watch the clip I posted. It won't ruin the movie for you.

    You might just be the first person I see who describes him/herself as "having seen tons of movies" and who haven't seen Pulp Fiction.
    It is definately a must to see that movie.
