Hey ! you are working for a marketing firm arent you ?

You wanna know where we live, what car we drive, whether we drink tea or coffee and what our favorite movies are.

I dont know about all time favorites. Its so hard to pick but i d give the best animation award to "Chicken little" and "The Incredibles".

    I can't believe someone else has Notting Hill on their list of all time favorites... Actually, I can't believe that I just admitted that I loved this movie...

    This list has to be a joke, right? Most of these show up on critics' list of the absolute worst movies of the decade!

    I hate many of the movies listed above by the other people, though they appear in the best movies list. Suffice to say that I enjoyed these movies. Really!
    Aah...add Highlander II to the above list

    I just hope that you don't label my reply in the "Where do you live?" thread also as a joke

    [Masure]: Aah...add Highlander II to the above list

    OK, now I know you're joking. Don't forget Plan 9 From Outer Space.

    As for the original question, hm. I'll go ahead and add a "me too!" to Mani's list above, as that's a pretty close match for my tastes. Some others which I might add:

    Alien
    Aliens
    Brazil
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    Galaxy Quest
    The Godfather part II (right up there with part I)
    Henry V (Branaugh's)
    The Incredibles
    L.A. Confidential
    The Life of Brian
    The Mission
    Office Space
    Raiders of the Lost Ark

    Doesn't surprise me as I composed this list based on your previous replies on similar threads in the past

    Hah! OK, well you've always had good taste. Even when choosing influences. I was too lazy to look up the previous threads... glad someone did it.

    I haven't see that movie yet!
    I need to check whether it is showing in any of the nearest theatres. I'll comment on this after I see this movie.

    I did not like this movie at all. I brought it as there were 4 stars for this movie on blockbuster site. But I would give 1 max 2 stars.
    By the end of the movie I started getting headach!
