Mine is "Stalker" of Andrew Tarkowsky.
Much better than "Lord of The Ring"

Two favorites:

Amadeus. Anything about it.

Princess Bride was definately one of my favorites growing up... that, and Ferris Bueler's Day Off... and Goonies... and GhostBusters
Nowaday's I'd have to go for ShawShank Redemption, Fantasia, and A.I. (I am SO kidding about A.I.)

Funny, I heard it in Sean Connery's accent...
I'd say Matrix and Mallrats Don't know about favourite in terms of content, but definitely movies I could watch over and over.

LadyHawk & Princess Bride, of course.
"You keep saying that word. I don't think it means what you think it means."
Another one from The Big Kahuna (Kevin Spacey & Danny de Vito at their very best):
"You've already done plenty of things to regret. You just don't know what they are. It's when you discover them. When you see the folly in something ou've done and you wish that you had it to do over, but you know you can't because it's too late. So you pick that thing up and you carry it with you to remind you that life goes on, the world will spin without you. It really doesn't matter in the end. Then, you will attain character, because honesty will reach out from inside and tattoo itself across your face."
Saddest best movie? Must be Truly, Madly, Deeply. (Any classical muso's out there?)

The mouse, the mouse,

He's gone away,
no mouse today.
To save the pain,
He's down the drain.

Of course! Lady Hawk! Thanks for the reminder...

    What is real? How do you define real? If real is that what you can touch or feel, then its just some electric signals send to your brain !!!

    "I am mumbling something you can't understand"

    By constantly trying one ends up succeeding. Thus: the more one fails the more one has a chance to succeed.
