Yeah they were ok. I've got no single favourite movie - I watch so many of the damn things.
Favourite actors is easy (no particular order):
Tom Cruise (in most of his movies)
Nicholas Cage (in 1 or 2 of his movies, most of the time I find him annoying. I think Face/Off and The Rock are the only two I enjoyed actually)
Which brings me to Sean Connery
That's about it

I think it's impossible to know. Someone else will always be naming some other movie that I will immediatly want to post on my favorite list. But here goes an effort. Of the top of my head, my favorite movies ever:
Once Upon a Time in The West
Lord of the Rings Trilogy

The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

How come no one's mentioned Star Wars?
I only mentioned my best, but there are also other movies which I really like. I really loved independence day when I saw it for the first time. But one year later I saw it and saw it was not that good.
Star Wars is good. It is very looks like to Lord of the rings, fight of good and bad. I have seen 4 of its six episodes.
I don't see Lord of the rings as a very good movie.
Titanic was good, but more told to be good than it really was (It could be if the girl was a little more beautiful!).
Shining was not a good movie.
I like old James Bond movies.
Face-off is a really good movie.
One of the most ridicules movies that I've ever seen is Tomb Raider.
Total Recall was good.
And Hot Shots, very funny.
B-13, french movie is good too.
The Matrix trilogy ESPECIALLY the first one. Those 3 movies just blow all other movies outta the water.

Heh, you must not see many movies.Originally Posted by jmd15
I'd either go with The Shawshank Redemption or Pulp Fiction as my favorite movie. My favorite scene ever has to be this: warning: may contain inappropriate material

American History X is one of my favorites.
Also, I have to agree with the first Matrix movie. It's an awesome movie.

Well, there's good movies and good movies.
Good movies doesn't neccessarily have a happy end because life sucks. Good movies doesn't have a replay value because they are disturbing and while you are glad you watched them, you don't want to watch them again:
"Die Brücke" ( German for The Bridge ), probably one of the best anti-war movies ever. B/W. In '45, a group of friends between 14 and 15 are pressed into service with the Wehrmacht, the German Army. The war is already lost, US troops are over the Rhine. The teenagers get sent out to defend a small local bridge. The bridge is meaningless. Driven by their naive heroism and all the propaganda they have been fed, they assume positions and prepare for a heroic defense. Totally unprepared for the reality of war, thinking of it as nothing more but playing cowboys and indians and getting medals in the end, they open up fire on a US tank column trying to cross the bridge. Unsurpisingly, this does not end well.
And then, there's good movies, that you can watch time and again:
Pirates of the Carribean
Equilibrium - Chritian Bale.
Of course there are others but they have been metioned so I left them out.
