Shawshank Redemption is one of the best American movies in the past 15 years. Wonderful. I will say that the TV version , I think, is actually better than the theatrical version, it's tighter editing, the removal of some of the sexual language, scenes gives it a much more timeless feel to it, and less of a modern one. A new classic for sure.

I have seen Rocky 1, and 3. 1, just classic American rising of the underdog, and 2, American story of redemption. Rocky I is the classic though.

That's what the entire movie is based around! Around that one single joke, which its sole purpose is to fill it with the most disgusting and crude things you can think of! It's sort of a comedian/cruel humor fan sort of thing so I'm not surprised many people will like it. Imo I see it as comedy genious.

There's nothing wrong with liking Transformers, but films like that are known as "popcorn movies." Fun, but not really substantial. If that's your favorite movie of all time, then you're probably not a very critical viewer yet. That changes as you get older and your taste matures. No need to be defensive, but I'm pretty sure in a few years you will barely remember Transformers.

hey what's your problem? I just found it interesting when I asked my 4 and 6 year old daughters what their favorite movies are they were HSM, HSM2 and pokemon. You don't find it the least bit amusing or interesting that a college aged guy and a 6 year old girl have similar movie tastes? It sounds like you are the one with a superiority attitude problem calling people jerks on based on harmless comments.

Wow, some of you must be VERY young based on some of your all time favorites(i.e.Pokemon, Spiderman, etc.)

For me, I think an all time favorites must be the type of movie that you can enjoy watching no matter what your mood.

Many classics come to mind, like Ben Hur, Gone with the Wind, Ten Commandments, It's a Wonderful Life, etc.

So while I might enjoy more recent movies like Cinderella Man, it is not in the same category as all time favorites. Probably a movie like Braveheart can be included for me as well.

GoodFellas is a classic Scorsese Mafia/gangsta film with great acting (Robert de Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci etc.)

Raging Bull was full of needless violence. There was absolutely no need to make such a movie.
Clockwork Orange was made by some sicko for sickos. Instead of seeing a shrink, some people make movies out their sick minds.
Pulp Fiction can be added to the above list of movies that should have never been made. Babel was another lousy movie of the recent ones.

(Please understand that these are opinions, the above movies happen to be in my brother collection!)

OTOH, most movies with Meryl Streep have been good. Most of the animation movies have been good. Finding Nemo, polar express, Ice Age, Madagascar ...

As others have said, it is from "Hedwig and the Angry Inch". Originally an off-Broadway rock opera, later turned into a movie. I rank it right up there with Rocky Horror, Spinal Tap, The Wall, and Moulin Rouge. The soundtrack is pretty good too, all original music.

Raging Bull was full of needless violence. There was absolutely no need to make such a movie.
Clockwork Orange was made by some sicko for sickos. Instead of seeing a shrink, some people make movies out their sick minds.
Pulp Fiction can be added to the above list of movies that should have never been made. Babel was another lousy movie of the recent ones.

(Please understand that these are opinions, the above movies happen to be in my brother collection!)

OTOH, most movies with Meryl Streep have been good. Most of the animation movies have been good. Finding Nemo, polar express, Ice Age, Madagascar ...

Different values perhaps. The person is from India and may have different cultural expectations for movies. (I know I know . . BROAD generalizations here . . .) For example, if you hail from Hong Kong, Pulp Fiction may not be violent enough. ;)

Don't care for Clockwork Orange all that much. I *get* the movie, but I felt its shocking elements can kinda gotten shlocky for me since the years.

Pulp Fiction is good, but it plays better in pieces than as a whole movie. Talking about the movie is sometimes more fun than watching it. In comparison, Reservoir Dogs was a real writerly gem, and the Kill Bill movies were loads of genre, East-West fetish fun.

Raging Bull is perfect.

actually, to be perfectly honest it doesnt affect me. however, i do worry about the effect violence etc has on other people. many young kids in their teens today, affected by western culture over here, are heavily into drugs. brother (in college) tells me about it all the time. he doesnt believe that violence has an effect on viewers, i do.
in rare instances i do feel it can have a positive impact, yes i saw Passion of Christ and was deeply touched. Even the violence in Blood Diamond, i wept to see people in pain. but if violence is for entertainment (like amercian/pro wrestling, then i think its bad).
anyway, that's just my way of looking at things. don;t mind my views.

The movie is a good documentary on the weapons-for-fish trade in Tanzania; the cargo planes arrive daily with weapons from Europe, and take-off back to Europe with 50 tons of fish... while the locals are starving for food.

Just saw Sicko. Top honors from me. Thank you Michael Moore for exposing those pesticides!

The minuses I give to the movie are for when Moore was acting a bit clueless asking the interviewed people -- ohh, you don't have to pay anything for health care? -- while he had already researched the issue prior to going into their country, and knew what their answer will be.

Another problem I see is that some people see the movie for entertainment purposes... and he made it entertaining, just like he did with the 911 movie. The only reason I see to make a serious movie be entertaining is to sell more movies, because people will be more likely to watch entertaining movies, rather than serious documentaries.... Well, maybe I am wrong... maybe that is actually a way to promote your serious movie... to trick the mass audiences into watching it by making it entertaining... just like the TV News are nowadays.

You know, the studios won't finance his movies if it doesn't put the fannies in the seats. The movie studios don't care about the issues, just profits. If a profitable movie can also promote an important issue, so much the better, but it's not really a requirement. Now, making a film of any sort entertaining definitely does add to the bottom line.

Few days ago I saw The English Patient. I had never seen it before, but it was on my long list of movies to see. I lost sympathy for both main characters right from the beginning when they were starting to develop an affair behind the back of the woman’s husband/boyfriend. At that point to me they both belonged to an episode of the TV show Cheaters.

I recall that movie was big back in the days around 10-15 years ago or so. For me, as epic and emotional the story was, and on the verge of tears, at the end it didn’t fool me into sympathizing for both of them…. Although, I would’ve preferred if both of them remained alive at the end.

Just saw a couple of good japanese animation movies - very touching and well "acted", about the Hiroshima bombings.

- Grave of the Fireflies
- Barefoot Gen
