    Same answer as I just put on the other site  ;D :

    Fellini Satyricon

    8 1/2

    Bergman's Persona

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    Last Tango in Paris

    The Godfather

    Those are the big screen, all-time favorites.  I'm also fond of samurai films in general, Kurosawa in particular, the whole Zatoichi series, Sean Connery's 007 (as well as most other things Connery stars in), Mutiny on the Bounty (70mm Brando version) (as well as virtually everything else Brando is in), French New Wave, most of Fellini, most of Antonioni.  American Beauty was a great film, but I've only seen it once.  I need to see it at least once more to be sure.  Ang Lee, Bruce Lee.  As you can see, this is off the top of my head.

    I plan to devote at least one decade of my life to intensive movie watching.  I just don't know which decade.

    I just saw The Artist (awarded best picture). Well, it's a good film and pretty enjoyable...but best movie of the year? Not in my opinion. I would recommend Girl with Dragon Tattoo, Descendents, or even Hugo over the Artist. Still, it was entertaining even though I couldn't hear a thing...Cinamax must have had the sound off!!!

    A lot of great films already picked. I too think the recent Euro editions superb:
    cinema paradiso
    Jean de Florette/Manon des Sources

    However, my all time favourite is probably............"The Third Man".

    Which gave us these classic lines:

    Harry Lime: "Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.............and Fabian Cancellara. ;D So long Holly."

    ...
    Silence of the Lambs
    ...

    Just watched Silence of the Lambs a few weeks ago for first time in a long while. I love the movies and not being able to go to the cinema has been the one thing (along w/ not being able to go out to dinner w/ Carissa) that I've steadily missed during my 4+ months of house arrest.

    I'll add my favorite movies later, but for now, I wanted to share one of my favorite movie scenes: the opening car chase/gun battle that takes place along the Italian Riviera, from the Bond film "Quantum of Solace."

    It's only briefly shown in the trailer: http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi2366243609/  or I loved that trailer...

    Wow - here's the full movie, part 1/10, with the chase - watch and enjoy:

    BTW: the budget for the new Bond film, opening in the US in November, is estimated at $200millionUSD!!!

    Love "the third man" !  I can't count how many times I've watched it.
    When I finally got to visit Vienna I went straight to the doorway that is supposed to be the one that Harry stood in the shadows.....
    and of course had to see the Reisenrad

    cool...look what I found

    Hey just a suggestion, but maybe when you reference or list a film, include an IMDB link if you have it at hand (obviously I'm not suggesting someone listing 15 movies find the link to each one - but if you're just posting one or two it's an extra step that would be a great convenience to the reader). Cheers! :)

    I am actually finding it really hard to watch. I am a big softy really and it is a little too much. The race when he died was just carnage.

    was so clear he did not want to race that race, especially after the other fatality. So sad, is just motor racing, why could he not just go home.

    There's some good stuff. 8 1/2 is one of my all-time favorites as well. So is Bergman's 'The Seventh Seal'. Also, I'm a great admirer of the work of Andrei Tarkovsky.

    Haven't watched it, but was just recommended it as a good sports film yesterday. Apparently, even Brad Pitt's tolerable in the film, can't be bad then.

    From reports from those that have read the book it (the movie) is a very condensed version but if you like sports than Moneyball is a good film, I enjoyed it. Don't like how the media have now latched onto the word and start mentioning everything 'unorthodox' as moneyball.  >:(

    I almost grabbed it the other day but held off because of the Brad Pitt factor. My favourite beseball movie has to be 61 , absolute cracking movie about the homerun chase between maris and mantle to beat Ruth's homerun record.
