My favorite movies... hmmm...
are five that would be in my top twenty off the top of my head.
I also agree that Woody Allen is a douche.
Top 5 movies:
I almost wanted to put every Quinten Tarantino movie ever made on there, except the shit one about the Nazis... obviously

If I had some money I'd go see Rango. I was shocked that it's been getting such good reviews, much to the surprise of my knee-jerk instinct against celebrity voiced CGI. But it seems that they actually made a good movie!
I think my favorite non-Pixar CGI movie thus far is Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. It was refreshing to see something eschew hyper-realism for a fun, cartoony look, and none of the celebrity voices were distracting. Plus it was actually really frikkin funny, and it didn't rely on pop culture references but was so wonderfully silly and fun.
Inglorious Basterds was awesome.
I watched Dark Harbor yesterday, just for Norman Reedus doing a Marilyn Monroe impersonation, and also to see how Alan Rickman's New England accent was. Got a gay kiss between the two! out of it, which was certainly more than I expected.
Oh well. One needs mediocrity to appreciate true brilliance.

Watched Sucker Punch last night. I'm still processing what I think of it; I liked a lot of it but it had problems.
Watchin' Paranormal Activity again.
@Cygan Angel- Have to admit, I chickened out of seeing that one. It just seemed too scary. I'll admit to being fairly easily scared by a film.
It's scary, but not as far as the trope page makes it out to be.
Then again, everything around here is hyperbole when it comes to the Darth Wiki and the Sugar Wiki.
The Dollars triology.
The first three Indiana Jones Movies. We do not speak of the fourth. -_-
The Original Starwars Movies.
Saving Private Ryan
Full Metal Jacket (Big Surprise Right)
All Quiet on the Western Front
Assembly (Foreign Film from China about the Chinese Civil War)
Iron Eagle and Top Gun :P
Starship Troopers (Campy Sci-Fi B Movie love from Tuefel)
Evil Dead 1&2
Army of Darkness
Letters from Iowa Jima.
Cool Hand Luke (What we have hear is a failure to Communicate)
The Death Wish Movie Series. Again campy kind of films.
The Matrix Series
And quite a few others.

I went and saw Paul last night, it was pretty good. Not as good as the other Simon Pegg movies though.
Yeah, I thought as much...the lack of Edgar Wright pretty much made me think that it'd go like that...
Watched my recent acquisition Bad Day At Black Rock. Lived up to the hype, engaging.

Watched Apocalypse Now on blu ray. Apparently it’s the movie world’s largest collection of super famous people before they where super famous (well, a few where already super famous).
Kinda unsure of what to make of the whole thing…which is probably what the director wanted. It seems to be something of a commentary on Vietnam but told in a more fantasy way.
I think I might recommend downloading/renting/netflex to anyone who can stomach war movies and hasn’t seen it yet to at least get all the Apocalypse Now references the permeate modern media.
I liked it when I watched it. It's a bizarre trip on the human mind and it's mentality. Not much else, really. I always thought that the war itself was just a background, to be perfectly honest.
Also, you confused The Magnificent Seven with Apocalypse Now in terms of future-famous casting.
I recall one semi-professional film critic insisting that Captain Willard died in his hotel room at the start of the film, and his mission to kill Kurtz was actually Purgatory.
...That's actually quite a popular theory. Or it being the Styx river. At least, that's the one I heard...
Pretty much any war story can have that done to it with reasonable success.
Today was like a film buffs wet dream in school. My sub in history turned out to be a huge film fam and we spent the whole period talking about it, we watched Vertigo in Great Ideas, and the teacher got my s
Teacher (Talking about art): You wonder what's in the box... Me: What's in the booooooooooox? (Teacher laughs)
Rewatching Amelie after dinner. That ought to make me feel better.
