What's your favorite movie of all time?

(Simon B) #1

I watch a lot of music movies, so the obvious one is Purple Rain. Still the only artist to have the Number 1 movie at the box office, the number 1 album, and the number 1 single all at the same time. Not even Madonna or Michael Jackson ever did that.


Aside from that I’d probably pick The Godfather. Genre-defining and damn near flawless.


What are your favourites?


Up. :balloon:

I could watch it over and over. It’s also a massive bonding moment for me and my best friend.

Still a better love story than twilight.

Oh yes! KEVIN.

The original Point Break - I’m not proud of it.



And I am proud of it :sunglasses:

What I tell people my favourite film is…

What it actually is…

(Caspar Aremi) #8

I have three.

The Hours
Which makes me cry like a baby every time I watch it, all three lead actresses are incredible. I once fell out with a colleague for a week because she argued with me about what it meant - she’d decided Meryl was playing a movie of the book adapted by Julianne Moore’s character or some nonsense and I got angry. It’s just three overlapping stories about how Mrs Dalloway affected their lives. Also the novel its based on is incredible, so much happens despite it being such a short book.

The Birdcage
Which I still find hilarious, years after first seeing it, and it feels like there are more jokes every time I watch.

Michael Clayton
I think this is where I fell in love with George Clooney, and Tilda Swinton. (It’s a running joke with my friends that whenever her name pops up, I have to tell them she lives in my home town in north Scotland) The whole film is intense, it gives me chills, you need to watch it a few times to see all the strands coming together. I love the script, the music, the direction, it’s perfect.

I went to a live screening with Tommy and Greg a few months back! So many spoons! Lol


I feel like I need to watch Michael Clayton now.

Epic choices

(Daniel Warriner) #16

Definitely The Island with Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson! Ignore Rotten Tomatoes & IMDB, though. :laughing:


There is no shame in Bill and Ted, only excellence.

The Abyss. Mr Cameron at his best ( James not David)


The Neverending Story

Entirely nostalgic but I still love it
