    For me it definitely has to be Goldfinger. I'm a HUGE James Bond film & this is my favourite film in the history of the franchise & the history of films. Everything from the characters to the plot to the line to the location. I could watch it everyday & not get tired of it.

    Two of my all time favourites are Christmas related. The #1 favourtie is A Christmas Carol with Alastair Sim. The #2 favourite is Going My Way with Bing Crosby. Christmas is not complete without watching these.

    Oooo, this is a tough question! I have so many favourite films!

    Ok, my all-time favourite is The Sound Of Music. I, like you Kaylyne , know all the words, dialogue EVERYTHING. I love it! :D

    Running a close second is Psycho ( I know, other end of the scale completely!). Hitchcock's finest hour and a great performance from Anthony Perkins.

    There are so many, I could be here all day....it's so hard to narrow it down! :lol:

    I hate it when people ask me this question because i can never give them a one film answer, so i have to break it down into categories.
    Action/Adventure - Jurassic Park
    Si-Fi - Serenity
    Comedy - Little Miss Sunshine

    Others include - Sin City, Twister and Aladdin.
    Out of those i don't think i could pick an overall favorite, it depends on what mood i am in.

    I think if I had to pick just one it would be Gone With The Wind It's got everything you could ask for in a movie, action, drama, romance, etc. and the end leaves you wondering just what will happen between Rhett and Scarlett.

    Thank you! Happy to see someone else who adores that movie. I've loved it since I was 6 years old. I, too, know the whole movie by heart and of course all the songs. Amazing.

    Besides that one I love Step Up. Great movie.

    I always find this question so hard to answer! There are just so many films I love, so I'll try to narrow it down to a few. ;)

    - The English Patient. Just totally heartbreaking, but a truly magnificent film.

    - Witness. Harrison Ford at his very best (should have won an Oscar) and just a very well structured, intelligent thriller, with some nice romantic touches too.

    - LOTR:The Fellowship Of The Ring. My favourite of the trilogy, but also my favourite of the 3 books, so that probably influenced me. I love the scenes from the Shire and the start of the journey. I'm not such a big fan of the battle scenes.

    - As Good As It Gets. Just a wonderfully funny, touching comedy that hits all the right notes. Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Cuba Gooding Jnr, Greg Kinnear are all brilliant in it.

    - Casablanca. My favourite of the classics. Plus, I'm an incurable romantic! ;)

    - Raiders Of The Lost Ark. A fantastic adventure and a film I could just watch over and over again. Harrison Ford in his prime too. :D

    Well, I have a bunch:

    1. Erin Brockovich. First time, I was watching it for Marg (as Donna Jensen). I didn't like Julia Roberts before watching it, but I gotta admit she's an awesome actress. Not my fave celebrity, but a great actress.
    2. Saw. Kinda horroristic. LOL. The thing why I like it is the fact that it could happen to ANYONE. No ghosts or other supernatural creatures.
    3. Harry Potter movies. I love the storyline. JK Rowling rules. Also love the design, all I don't like is they weren't stuck to the basic storyline, for example the way they figured out who Mad-Eye Moody (or whoever) was. (He was licking his lips all the time in the movie).
    4. Butterfly Effect. That was a great one, I love Ashton Kutcher, also love the idea and the design.
