Ever since I saw it last year "The City Of Lost Children" has held the spot of favorite movie. It's got everything a movie needs, amazing story, perfect mixture of humor with serious drama, likable characters that are all rememberable, Ron Pearlman, brilliantly designed sets, Ron Pearlman, and Ron Pearlman.

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon - for a martial arts film, they come any better than this. of special note is the hand and footwork in the first fight, and of course, the scene everyone loves, the warehouse fight.

When the last sword is drawn - a picture of what samurai life was like at the end of the edo period/early mejii era. heartwrenchingly sad, beautifully told.

A tale of two sisters - possibly the finest horror film ever made, ever

They live - no one can deny it contains the finest streetfight ever choreographed for film. certainly the most parodied fight, and the most copied in all of film history. if that's not enough, it has roddy piper, keith david, and aliens.

Life is beautiful - i love this movie, it has nearly everything a movie should have, and almost nothing that it shouldn't. it's nearly perfect.

honorable mention:
Gran torino - possibly clint eastwoods finest product


i was going to list kevin costner's "the postman" just as a joke, but then i realized it was too far fetched and no one would have believed it.

Have you ever seen Twilight Samurai? A very slow moving but beautiful about the Samurai code.

Kudos for They Live. Such a great great movie. If that movie starred Carpenter fave Kurt Russell then it would have been even bigger!

oh yes, twilight samurai is, in some ways more moving, even though not quite as tear-jerking. i vaccilated between that one and last sword, now i think about it some more and i've become unsure of my original choice

man, i couldn't agree more on the kurt russell thing, although i'm not sure how they might have fit him in. it wouldn't be my choice to replace piper or david with him, but to add him to the mix somehow. more jack burton than snake pliskin

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.
