Best movie ever in my opinion: Michael Bay's original Transformers.

Followups are Star Wars episode III, Dragon Wars, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, and the 2010 Clash of the Titans

I am another one with a list unfortunately and even that list varies depending on my mood.

Ice age, Millennium, First Blood, The Thing Flash Gordon, The X men, 2001 AD and a whole lot more.

And not necessarily in that order either.

I have just gotten myself a new favorite horror movie.

As a horror fan I regard myself beloning to the "fairly thoughend up" crowd...it takes a lot before a horror movie really scares me. In fact is has been decades since a movie made me so scared that I had to take a lamp with me to the toilet, but that is exactly what I had to do last night :D

I´ve read the novel "The Woman in Black" and well, I enjoy a good ghost story and I loved that book so much that last night when I got the oppotunity to rent the movie based on the novel and goes by the same name, I was expecting a few goose bumps and nothing more.

Daniel Radcliff (that´s right...Harry Potter) plays the main character, Arthur Kipps and it made me giggle...he still sounds like that little lad in the Harry Potter movies and I was expecting Ron and Hermione to pop up at any given time...well the first 15 minutes at least. That changed however....this has got to be the scariest ghost movie that I have ever seen. I cannot really put a finger on what is so scary...it is all just sinister and scary. And of course very well done...but then again that is what you can expect from a Hammer production.

This is my "Ringu" (original Japanese version of The Ring). I did not get "Ringu" at all...it seem that it has made everybody scared, except for me and I am sure that some people will think that "The Woman in Black" belongs to the catagory : Ultra boring horror movies who want to be horror, but really are not". But it sure scared the living day lights out of me :D

Well I have to say when Star Trek 2 came out I was....a tad bit obsessed. I went and saw the movie three times in theatre, would've gone a fourth with my dad but he went on a day that I was working. And I immediately bought the movie on DVD when it came out and watched it another three times. I still need to watch it again, I've been wanting to, it just hasn't happened yet. I loved Thor 2 as well.

There are two movies which made me feel the same way, Rhannan...they are "Sid and Nancy" and "Dances with Wolves"...too good to just be seen once. Of course the list of "must-see-again" movies has grown longer during the years...but the above movies were the two very first. Before that I had not really been into movies that much...during my child hood and teen years I hardly ever went to the cinema, T.V watching was very restricted when I lived with my parents and I first owned my own VHS player when I was in my early 20´s

I love the television versions of Star Treck...might give the two most recent movies a viewing or two.

Movies are usually one of my go-to things; I usually am going to see the ones I wish to see opening weekend and plan seasons around when the "good" ones come out. Good is in quotes, because I understand that it is a term wide open to interpretation. With that said though, some of my favorite movies have been things like Pulp Fiction, Inglorious B-tards, both Star Trek reboots, and just about anything tied into the Marvel Universe. I'm usually not one for the dramatic, I get enough of that both real and manufactured in everyday life, but, if no one in here has seen it, I would strongly suggest seeing Cloud Atlas... one of the most unique and thought-provoking movies I have ever seen.

Right now the only things that come to mind are Gattaca and Avatar, which we need to watch again 'cause I'm only getting them secondhand...

I'm sure there are more. Several people here watch Disney for fluff and cuddles. The Brothers have Nightmare Before Christmas as their favorite; Corpse Bride is lovely but not nearly the same.

I have just watched The Hunger Games every night for a week.

I love that movie.

I've never seen Nightmare Before Christmas, but I love their version of Carol Of The Bells. It's incredible and I listen to it a whole lot over the Yule season.

Yup me too :11151:

I love Carol of the Bells to but I have a thing for "Troika" by Prokofiev. The first school assembly story I remember was Luitenant Kije and our head teacher played Troika ..It's been an emotive reminder of winter for me ever since

I didn't know they had a version of Carol of the Bells, Velvet. :smile: We'll be looking at that later, but Mog is right - Nightmare Before Christmas is definitely worth watching. It's the right mix of creepy and endearing, with absolutely splendid music, and the animation is just spectacular...

Man, there are just so many and for many different reasons. Though I consider myself somewhat of a horror movie buff I still have a lot to see before I make a best of list.

You want an interesting take on Christmas... sometimes it's on Netflix but check out Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. Dael'drha and I watched it last year and were pleasantly surprised by it.

At first glance that sounds like it would be a based-on-a-documentary movie about either material goods or oriental escorts, with a Christmas-themed cherry on top.

Whenever we can catch this on Netflix, I'm sure we'll be surprised...

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.

Its a good fun romp, they're planning on a sequel I think and the kids gonna be in a new movie where the president of the US (Samuel L. Jackson) gets accidentally dropped off in Lapland and the kid has to escort him out.

Uh hm. Well I think that Dracula Untold might have just made it onto my list of favourites. My list is ever-changing but right now that one is on it. Just watched it last night and while I heard it didn't get very good reviews I thought it was rather well done. A somewhat different take with an interesting twist or two, good story line, and the hottest Dracula yet! :lol:

But Rise of the Guardians is on that list, too, and I think it sits a little higher. I'm waiting to go see Jupiter Ascending when there's time to make it to the theaters, or I'll wait until it's out on DVD or whathaveyou.

You know what else is a really well done film? Kingsman. Dael and I went to see that over the weekend and it is nothing short of spectacular. :smile:

I love horror movies, especially the stranger ones. My favorites include Hellraiser, Wishmaster, Halloween (1978), A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984), The Thing (1982), Event Horizon, From Beyond, The Evil Dead (1981), etc. I love John Carpenter's films, especially the Snake Plissken series. Some of the older "comic books turned movies" are great (e.g., Judge Dredd and Spawn). The Room is probably the single greatest movie ever made (with Troll 2 coming close). Old monster movies like It Came from Beneath the Sea and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms are my life. I also have a substantial Godzilla collection (I'm only missing a few movies).
