Ok here's a question for the masses.What's your all time favorite movie and why???Some one once told me that the movies we enjoy tell us a lot about eachothers personalities, well, if you could pick one flick (ok maybe two) what would it/they be?My all time fav. movie is THE CROW. hands down. gothic love story, killer actor, tons of awesome quotes, a damn cool super hero costume- and the most beautiful movie premise (at least in my eyes) that love is stronger than death.sigh... I love that flick.How 'bout you guys? Any timeless favorites you can think of?------------------Care of other people's approval and you become their prisoner.Live fully, Rave wholly.Fluid are the movements of my strings...

I forgot to say -why- I like it. I only -wish- I could've seen it live, Pele, but I did see Saltimbanco. I've got the Quidam DVD, though--AWESOME!!!I can mesmerize myself with the German wheel dude at the beginning for hours. The editing is absolutely great--the editors did a cool trick where they followed the rotation of the wheel with the camera, so the wheel doesn't look like it's spinning--everything else does.The whole "story", no matter how simple (or even cliche?) has a lot of meaning for me, the characters are real and wonderfully acted, the music is great, and the entire show is all-around inspring...-ry guy

Hmmm..I like lots of different stuff and my favorite tends to vary with my mood. I also have the worst memory in the entire world soa) I can never remember what the good ones are called andb) I can completely forget that I've even seen a film within a couple of months of watching it. This is actually quite useful because I can watch the same film over and over and not get bored with it.Having said all that, there are a couple that I can remember so I guess they must have made an impression somewhere along the line."Bladerunner" - just for being so atmospheric and poignant"A matter of Life and Death" - no-one will have heard of this - it's forty or more years old, half colour and half B/W and just, well, unique.Think that's prob'ly it
