Your Favorite Movies - YLB Memorial Edition

I feel like it's been a while since we've done this, and my searches for posts of mine with the words "American Beauty" in them seem to back that up.

Anyways, I know the Favorite Movies threads are always a good source of conversation and I hate when it gets really slow in Zoo Station.

Plus, I haven't updated my list in like 3 years, so now I'm going to look like an ass if I don't post one here soon.

Please, enjoy, discuss, etc.

Please?

My favorite movies... that would be such a long long list...

I'd say Vertigo is high on my list.

The Shining.

12 Angry Men.

I can't do it. Seriously, the list would be too long. But those 3 movies are always high on my lists.

YLB would mention Big Trouble in Little China.

The Game is a personal favorite of mine....and this is favorite films, not "best films EVAR" so there you have it.

Van Cleef, I almost added Clockwork to my list but rolled with 2001.

The Game with Michael Douglas? Excellent movie. 2001 as well. Pretty much any Kubrick could make my list.

Definitely a favorite of mine as well. I have awesome memories of watching that movie for the first time, because it was one of those moments where I was caught up in the film with rapt fascination from the very beginning and I watched every twist and turn anxious to see what would happen next. It's doubly cool to think that I felt that edge of your seat watching a movie that takes place, basically, in a single room over the course of an afternoon.

1) I can't believe I still haven't seen this. Jules and Jim either, for that matter (not that they have anything to do with each other, I just associate them because of their titles).

2) Really? I haven't even come close to watching that one yet (I may have flipped it on on Netflix once and watched for about 10 minutes, but that's about it). I'm woefully ignorant of his filmography, outside of the majors, though.

3) Thanks to you, one of the few films I've actually watched twice in a row (the second time with commentary). I was so fascinated with it, I'm almost tempted to include it on my list as well.
