Mine is Top Gun...

If I buy a new TV thats how I HAVE to break it in... just something about that movie I love. Kind of a vibe or something, I just cant pin it down.


Whats your favorite movie?
Cool

Very favorite? That's tough!
Maybe Rocky (the original).
Or perhaps Being There with Peter Sellers.
Sometimes it's Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
And I seem to watch That Thing You Do every year or so.

Tough question, mate!

Wow, just one? That's tough. I'm a big history nut and have a soft spot for John Wayne's "The Alamo" among other "epics" from back in the day. But ....

I truly never get sick of seeing "My Cousin Vinnie" and always list that as my all-time favorite flick.

That's my vote and I'm sticking to it.

Vinnie? Classic... If I recall Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid) was in that one. Niiice choice.

"That Thing You Do" is a great call.

I like the classics - I have "Mister Roberts" on my DVR right now. "North By Northwest", "From Here to Eternity", "Some Like it Hot", and so on.

But if we're talking 'desert island discs', it would be "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". That's just a great film, even if it's not a very faithful adaptation of the book (and Martin Freeman is cast as Bilbo in the forthcoming Hobbit movies).





Even the trailer is clever.

And if you've never seen "Still Crazy", it's about as good a rock-n-roll film as I've ever seen. Can't recommend it highly enough.

...and I just realized Bill Nighy is in both of those films. Don't think I ever put that together.

The AFI said it was the second greatest movie of all time, but Casablanca is my all time favorite.

As pilots, this is the Mrs and my favorite, as well. Favorite to laugh at and make fun of.

So many great (old ones-new movies suck as they are nothing but special effects and remakes!) movies out there, but my personal favorite is A Clockwork Orange.

Its funny because I have so many favorites too. Top Gun is just my ultimate favorite. Took me many years to realize it too where there are so many greats.

Star Wars series.
Rocky series.
Rambo series.
National Treasure movies.
The Lord of The Ring series.
Star Trek movies.
Pitch Black.
Alien series.
Movies recently by Marvel.

There is just so much good stuff out there. But for me Top Gun is just my "go to" movie.
