Your favourite movie...

Mine is Death Becomes Her. I know it's not "Oscar material" but it has some of the best lines and driest humour ever. And watching Meryl and Goldie beat the shit out of each other is epic. The ending always makes me laugh out loud.

R132, I like Star Trek: The Motion Picture, as well. I have both the Director's Cut on DVD and the original theatrical version on BlueRay (after wearing out more than a couple of VHS tapes back in the day). It is a visually stunning movie. I remember being blown away by it back in '79. Robert Wise was a phenomenal director and I think he accomplished greatness with ST:TMP. Very cerebral. I think it went over a lot of people's heads (and it still does). Sad that most people prefer Star Trek 2009.

No, R184, I am not, nor have I ever been, straight in all of my 48 years (I'm not even close to butch, either). I have always been into action, sci-fi, comedies and horror movies. I've never cared for musicals or rom-coms. That's just me. Most of my buddies like the same type of movies that I do. Homosexuality is defined by same-sex attraction, not by loving movies like "Dreamgirls" or "Grease", LoL. No offense to those who love musicals, but they really hold no place in my gay heart.

My fave of all time is "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" --- I have loved it since childhood. Dick Van Dyke was my first crush in the 1960s. My Partner hates the movie and calls it "Shitty Shitty Gang Bang", but I love him anyway.

"Chitty Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Oh you pretty Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang We love you. And, in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang What we'll do. Near, far, in our motor car Oh what a happy time we'll spend." Everybody sing!

Wonderful list, R195, but 'Lilya 4-Ever' a favorite? Really? That movie is so fucking brutal. Although, I can't really talk--one of my all time favorite films is 'The Deer Hunter'. Probably seen it 20 times, at least.

The same goes for 'Amelie'. I've worn out my dvd.

It's hard to say what my absolute favorite is these days. My top five rotates upon rewatches, so the top spot has changed over the years.

Brazil or The Deer Hunter

My Own Private Idaho

Apocalypse Now!

sex, lies, and videotape

Velvet Goldmine

Dog Day Afternoon

Nights of Cabiria

Barton Fink or Raising Arizona, depending on my mood

One that nobody remembers... "Roadie". It was released in 1980 and was a huge hit and the funniest comedy ever. Great soundtrack too - Blondie, Cheep Trick, Pat Benathar, Joe Ely Band, Alex Cooper (remember, the acid rocker with the boa constricter, whose also in the movie), Emmie Lou Harrus, Hank Williams, Styx, Teddy Pentergrast, Jerry Lewis, Ron Orbison. Best comedy of all time. I finally found the DVD and will never part with it.

Wow. I found "Death Becomes Her" to be one of those movies trying so desperately to be funny by aping concepts that worked in other films, but failing. The tone is just off, and other than the opening "Songbird" Broadway musical parody, I wasn't tempted to laugh once.

It's cold, mean and ugly, like "Brazil", but just never gets around to "funny". Just my opinion.

Try an older movie like Godfather I or II, Jaws, Network, Unforgiven, Raging Bull, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Once Upon A Time In The West, or an Alfred Hitchcock film from the 40's, 50's, or 60's.

[quote]Mine is Death Becomes Her. I know it's not "Oscar material" but it has some of the best lines and driest humour ever.

Sweetie, if its your favorite movie, you should know that "Death Becomes Her" is actually an Oscar WINNER, best Special Effects and Meryl was nominated for a Golden Globe.

[quote]My choices are all this century, I'm sorry but I am 19 and I just cannot watch movies made before 2000. Movies made in the 20th Century seem so fake and silly, not to mention all the bad acting and terrible music. I end up turning them off within 20 minutes.

We're doomed.

I loved La Belle et La Bête by Jean Cocteau when I first saw it many years ago. Magical was how I framed it in memory.

I saw it last night on TCM and it was so much more magical, surreal and brilliant than that one and only other time. It was transcend in its beauty.

I didn't 'remember, whether I knew the last time or not, how he made the childlike and timeless storytelling come to life on 1940s film. The movie was made during occupied France era, and the austere sets, with the haunting effects, is pretty compelling given the reality outside of where the film was recorded.

Cocteau made the surreal transcendent, not inaccessible to common day experiences - genius creative manifestation.
