I've never been able to pick a favourite movie, but Lagan is one of the best I've seen.

1.The Legend of the Fall.
2.Beautiful Minds.
3.Good Will Hunting.

Life is too important to be taken seriously so I like comedies the best.
 
Harold Ramus has done some classics like:
 
-Analyze This
-Analyze That
-Groundhog Day
 
Others:
-Fools Rush In
-Garden State
-As Good As It Gets
-Mystery Men
 
A Beautiful Mind about John Nash was really good too.

Absolutely.

Apart from those, I love a lot of the historical dramas out of Hollywood (especially Braveheart, Troy, Kingdom of Heaven and the wonderful Cleopathra of 1963 with Liz Taylor), as well as anything by Stanley Kubrick (in particular Eyes Wide Shut), Quentin Tarantino, Akira Kurosawa and Hayao Miyazaki. I'm also a big fan of Star Wars, perhaps especially now as the latest three installments have fleshed things out and matured the concept, and the Alien movies (apart from the fourth). Then there's the Appleseed anime of 2003, an animation of Masamune Shirow's manga, which features some of the most impressive animation I've laid eyes upon, Miyazaki's movies included.

Very good selection, especially Fitzcarraldo, one of my favorites.

It's nice seeing another Herzog fan here.

Another favorite I forgot about is Why Does Herr. R. Run Amok?, one of my favorite R.W. Fassbinder movies.

How about; "The Island of Dr. Moreau?", or "The Hunchback of Notre Dame?"

Don't any of you kids ever watch classic movies?

How about, "The Manchurian Candidate?", or "The Graduate?", or literally hundreds of other movies which it seems, none of you under the age of 30 have ever watched nor would you watch without a gun to your heads!
