    Mine is Kill Bill. I say Kill Bill as in both volume 1 & 2 because you really can't watch one without the other. Tarantino is a genius :) And I've watched both films tonight.

    So, what are yours? And I know it's hard to pick so let's say you can have a top 3. :)

    ok, i shall not go over three... (nor repeat any :p)

    three movies i have been known to watch over and over again:
    • pirates of the caribbean: curse of the black pearl
    • identity
    • patch adams


    two movies that i watched every day for an entire summer:
    • dead poets society
    • brother bear



    three movies i know off by heart
    • cool runnings
    • girl interrupted
    • patch adams



    three movies that i almost certainly love
    • stay
    • the jacket
    • twelve monkeys




    three feel good movies
    • elizabeth town
    • casper
    • coyote ugly


    this isnt fair... im trying to decide between the hundreds of films i OWN and not being able to choose.

    i refuse, it's discrimination!

    I have watched Kill Bill sooooo many times it's unhealthy! There has long been rumours of a redux version with both films knitted together, plus a few extra bits, but Tarantino always denies it. How cool would that be? Did you know that the idea for the film was dreamed up by Tarantino and Uma Thurman while they were filming Pulp Fiction, it is based on the part that Uma's character had played in a failed TV show about a group of 5 assassins!

    Having said that, Kill Bill (and cheating slightly here because the two films are actually just one longer film, so am including them both as one teehee!) would actually have to come a very close second to Avatar. What a movie, Cameron's vision is totally ground breaking and no matter how old the story itself may be, it is one of the very few movies in which a single scene never fails to bring a tear to my eye (I see you). Add that to the fact that it is probably one of the most beautiful films ever made and you have a winner.*

    Limping in at number three could be any one from a long list depending on my mood, Last Samurai is a classic and a current favourite. I like films that leave a little to the imagination rather than shoving it all in your face, and films with an unexpected twist, like M Night Shaymalan films. One of the scariest films I have ever seen is Signs because it's not about all the monsters and the blood and gore that you see, it's more about what you don't see or perhaps just catch a fleeting glimpse of. That film still makes me jump and gives me goose bumps every time.

    How many is that now? Shall I go on? I do like a nice talky picture!

    *If you have watched this film on DVD you will no doubt have been impressed with the quality of the images and clarity of the 5.1 soundtrack, however, this film and this film alone is the one and only reason to upgrade to Bluray. If you thought it looked good on DVD then the Bluray will quite literally astound you, and the master audio is just sublime and a real enhancement to the experience. The quality of the Bluray (esp the special edition with all the extra bits) version is BETTER than the version shown in cinemas.
