Old Movies:
The Sting, The Great Escape, Duck Soup, A Night at the Opera (basically anything by the Marx Brothers), Rear Window, North By Northwest, Bridge on the River Kwai, and of course, The Third Man

New Movies:
The Lord of The Rings, The Prestige, Nolan's Batman series, Spider-Man series

And I've already shared my favorite movies from this year, but I'd also like to add The Hurt Locker, which was excellent.

I might forget a few, but my favorites from any period would start with ...

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind- I just think it's a gorgeous film. The storyline and the imagery and the way it was shot, and the way the storyline is broken up and you, or at least I do everytime I watch it, keep trying to fit the pieces together...I love that it's about love, but it's not a typical cheesy happy ending. You can kind of take it as a depressing movie or an uplifting movie.

Other than that,

Ferris Bueller's Day Off, (I used to watch this all the time when I was younger...I can pretty much quote the entire movie)
Pretty in Pink,
(a lot of 80s John Hughes teen movies!)
Edward Scissorhands,
Crybaby,
(okay, anything with Johnny Depp, I know that's a bit of a cliche nowadays, but who cares)
Rebel Without A Cause,
Closer,
I Love You Man,
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,
The Notebook (cheesy but so good...),
American History X,
PeeWee's Big Adventure,
True Romance,
and lots of cheesy horror movies like Halloween, Friday the 13th, When a Stranger Calls (the original), but preferably ones from the 70s&80s...they tend to be more about the suspense, rather than the new ones, which I find are more about the gore.

Oh and The Jerk! One of the funniest movies EVER.

Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

My favorite movie...when I really think about it, I never like movies that are completely serious. Even if they have a serious point it has to be funny or I can't watch it.

I'm never confident about sequels, so I'll wait and see. But The Dark Knight surprised me, so who knows!

just watched The Blues Brothers for the umpteenth time (I first saw it when it came out in 1980!)

if you've never seen it and you like your rhythm and blues, go watch it

I saw Invictus last night, it was good but the pace was a little slow for the first half hour or so.

I also saw Up In The Air last weekend, which I really liked (George Clooney was excellent) and The Road the weekend before which totally lived up to the expectations I had after reading the book (which hardly ever happens with me).

Just watched Avatar yesterday, in 3D. VERY good. Definitely takes plot hints from FernGully and Dances with Wolves, but it's an incredible movie all around. You know those OMG goosebumps moments you get when at a movie when something incredibly awesome or sad happens? There are several of those moments in the movie.

I watched 21 Grams last night. Thought it was a stunning film, amazing.

Sean Penn is just an incredible actor.

I was really pleasantly surprised by Avatar. The story was pretty predictable but I was happy due of all of the pretty graphics and bioluminescence. I'd see it again even though it was rather long.

ooh, that's been on my list of movies i've been intending to see for ages, and keep forgetting about it. have you seen mystic river? such a good movie, it gets me every time.

and re: avatar- i'm surprised to hear people liked it so much. the reviews i've read basically said for special effects it would get an A+, but for storyline a B- or so...

Watched Mystic Rover for the first time a month or so back. Also an incredible film. Watched it again a few days ago.

I'm not going to bother seeing Avatar, It seems like they've put all their money and thoughts into the visuals which isn't really what films are about.

I think you're getting the wrong idea about Avatar, man. It's not all visual; the story and characters are still really good. You're pulled into the movie because the actors and animators did such a good job and the story is developed in a way that is engrossing.
It's a must see, without a doubt. Don't write it off as all flare and no substance (i.e. Transformers 2, which was retarded), because it's not that at all. It's an incredible movie all the way around. I'm a film buff too and believe me, I wouldn't bother with a movie that's 2 hrs and 40 minutes if it was all eye candy.

I've heard from other people that the story and plot is really thin and unoriginal. Obviously I'm not just taking their word for it, have seen the trailer and plot and personally it's not the sort of film I'd watch anyway.

I can just sense certain groups of people only going to see it and enjoying it for the visuals, I'm not a big 3D fan anyway so I'm bound not to be urding to see it. As I said though, it doesn't look like I'd enjoy it from the trailer, really not my type of film.

I might watch it at some point if someone goes to see it or gets it on DVD.

Really looking forward to Up In The Air myself.

Fair enough. I still hope you see it in theaters though! It's something to be experienced there.
RE the 3D, I'm not a fan of it either, but this is the first film I've seen that actually puts it to good use and tries immerse the audience instead of just showing off.

Believe me, it's not only about the effects, sure they are awesome but that's not all. It's an obvious criticism to our arrogance, thinking everybody wants to be like us and shooting when they don't accept our ways. Many connections to Indians-settlers, they are really trying to say something with it, and I like that.

My girlfriend saw it earlier and said it was awesome too.

I still don't like the look of it but will probably give it a shot if a chance comes up, certainly not going out of my way to see it. I hate it when films get so much hype, it may justify it but it just puts it on a downer before hand for me personally.
