I'm not a huge movie buff, so there's a ton of films I've never seen, buuut....

(In no particular order)

- Forrest Gump
- The Breakfast Club
- WALL-E
- Labyrinth
- Edward Scissorhands

There's more than that, but those were five that came to mind.

And as for least favorites...I dunno, I haven't seen many films I've disliked, let alone hated. Maybe it's because I'm pretty selective about what I go see, I dunno. :\ But if I were to make a list anyway...

- Norbit (I seriously think this movie gave me an anyeurism...Not that I thought it would be good, nor did I willingly watch it. It happened to be playing in the same room one day and I was in a position where I couldn't move.)
- Juno (Someone's gonna kill me for this one, I just know it...)
- Anything by Seltzer and Friedberg (The geniuses behind Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, and the like)
- Twilight. (I haven't even seen the movie, but from what I've read of the book...*shudder*)
- ...I dunno.

Default Re: Your All Time 5 Favourite Movies (Oh and least favourite)

this is hard for me, mostly because i am not nearly as objective about movies as i am about music or books. the last five movies i enjoyed include

1 - control
2 - the breakfast club
3 - sixteen candles
4 - st. elmo's fire
5 - slumdog millionaire

three 80s movies sandwiched between two movies that came out in the last two years. yeah.

as far as least favorite movies go, i don't have many for reasons explained above, but i probably enjoyed twilight the least out of any movie that i can remember. the dark knight was not very good to me, either.

2001 is my favourite film. I hate putting things in order, so I don't really know what would come next, but best film of last year (I have been watching lots of those lately) was Wall-E. Followed quite closely by Frost/Nixon.

Oh, gosh...this is going to be hard to choose. But alright:

My favorites(not necessarily in order):

1.) The Dark Knight
2.) Ferris Bueller's Day Off
3.) Starship Troopers
4.) Titanic
5.) Easter Parade

Yes, I have a very odd range of taste. It's pretty weird going from Batman to Judy Garland. As for least favorites, I don't really have any(and even though Twilight annoys me, I'm not going to say that I hate it.)

Off the top of my head (ask me in a month's time and the answers'll probably be totally different):

1. Rent
2. V for Vendetta
3. Little Miss Sunshine
4. Imagine Me & You (shuddup)
5. Howl's Moving Castle

Honourable mentions go to Kiki's Delivary Service, Spirited Away, If These Walls Could Talk (1 and 2), The Incredibles, Thelma and Louise, Groundhog Day, Terminator 2, Foxfire, Mulan, Billy Elliot, Bound and Fried Green Tomatoes.

I really didn't like Independence Day, King Kong, The Terminal, Knocked Up or Stormbreaker.

I loathed Superbad, the Saw films and Sin City.

3. The Phantom of the Opera
4. Any of the Hannibal Lecter movies (including Red Dragon)
5. The Company of Wolves
Shaun of the Dead is worth an honorable mention
Worst... hmm, I'd probably have to say the Back to the Future series, the Home Alone series and pretty much any Disney life-action flick.
Oh, and High School Musical anything. God.

1. V

4. Beowulf
5. The Brothers Grimm (the ghost scene at the start)

Be aware that I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel with the last three. I can only say that they didn't completely suck, not that I like them.

Honourable mentions: Bolt, Disturbia, About A Boy, Hot Fuzz and Juno.

I'm not very good at picking films I didn't like, though. D: I read summaries and don't go to see films I deem boring, so I tend to only watch things I end up enjoying.

5. The Shawshank Redemption
4. Casablanca
3. Black Book
2. Letters from Iwo Jima
1. Stalingrad

Honorable Mentions: Almost Famous, Airplane!, Flags of our Fathers, Downfall, Princess Mononoke, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Toki wo Shoujo Kakeru), The Matrix, Who Am I?, Shaun of the Dead, Terminator 2, Breach

Spirited Away in sort of on limbo for me. I think I just watched it too many times.

Films I did not like? I'm pretty good at picking out which films I'll like and which ones I won't like at a glance.
However, Flyboys looked cool (and the special effects did turn out cool) and I wanted a World War I film. Unfortunately, everything else about it sucked.
And then there was Pearl Harbor. I watched it in class, so I had little choice in the matter. Again with the neat action sequences and letdowns everywhere else.

No idea what my favorite movies would be... I don't watch movies often enough to make a definite "Top 5" list. I liked the whole Star Wars series (mostly the original trilogy, though the prequels--though they don't measure up to the originals very well--weren't nearly as bad as people claim they are), the Shrek series, Monty Python and the Holy Grail (I still need to see the other Monty Python movies), the Austin Powers movies, and probably half a dozen others I can't remember.

EDIT: Speaking of those I couldn't remember, the whole Lord of the Rings trilogy. Can't believe I forgot it the first time.

Same here. That's one of the few movies I've ever literally fell asleep during (the other being Titanic... even trying to follow the subtitles when watching it in Spanish couldn't keep me awake.)

Couldn't stand Anchorman either. Not sleep-inducing, though I did leave the room about halfway through because it was just that bad.

I barely ever watch movies, and I barely ever will until they make a Astroboy/Metroid/MOTHER movie, and the MOTHER movie would have to be anime-style, or else it will be shit.

But I have watched some movies, so my top list would be the following:

1. Kung-Fu panda
2. Scooby-Doo Meets the Brothers Boo (ಠ_ಠ)
3. Pokémon 3: The Movie
4. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (The best of the Potter movies in my opinion)
5. Garfield the Movie

I haven't seen enough movies to make a least favourite.
