Not your top five. Not your top three. Just your number one top film ever.
Mine is, Some like it hot
The exceptionally "marmitey" Cloud Atlas.
12 Angry Men
God Father 1
Leon (The Professional, not the Pig Farmer and it has to be the directors cut.)
All The President's Men.
Top 5, in no particular order:
2. Transformers, Dark of the Moon
3. Fast and Furious 4
6. Brewsters Millions
8. Time Bandits
1. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
The Life of Brian
Something intelligent, insightful and pretty good slipped into your list - what's wrong?
there can be only one - Highlander!
the first one obviously as all the sequels were steaming piles of poop
Dawn of the Dead
Silence of the Lambs
The Empire Strikes Back.
Impossible question. I have a favourite film within certain genres but picking one I cannot do. Some are favourites from childhood that I may not think are best films but I enjoyed when I was younger more than truly great films ive seen recently.
City of God
Empire stikes back
Back to the future
The good the bad and the ugly
Batteries not included.
Lord of the rings
Temple of doom.
Letters from iwojima/flags of our fathers
I can pick my least favourite film ever, moonwalker by Michael Jackson. Parents took me and my brother to the cinema and we ended up watching this for some reason. I fell asleep it was so disappointing.
City of God
Once were warriors
The title misled me about the subject matter of that film ..........
There are variants.
Agreed. The orginal Charlie is a classic and probably is in my top 10. The recent Wonky Willie film however is absolute toilet.
Yes. Sorry that Roald didn't like it but Gene Wilder was incredible.
Agreed that intial scene with the walking stick.
The film also provided us with a perfect meme picture.
I had my kids watch it recently and am delighted to report, they love it, which means I will watch it another 50 odd times over the coming years.
I've got three kids and I've actually "worn out" DVD's of: "The Time Bandits", "The Dark Crystal" and "The Princess Bride" - all three of which had to be culled from the list to form my single favourite film.
EDIT: And the brilliant "Willow" (we're on the second DVD of this).
We had a VHS of Time Bandits as kids. Travelled with us on holidays etc. It's probably still in my parents' loft.
What you do not know is that I am not left handed.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
The gag-rate in that film and book is phenomenal.
I agree with Pete. It is almost impossible to narrow it down to one film. It depends on your mood. The Godfather is a go to movie and probably my favourite, but I have seen it so many times that the impact is diminishing. The Good, The Bad & The Ugly is just incredible as is The Wild Bunch. At the same time I like silly comedies and Dumb & Dumber still makes me laugh.
Have to add one more...The Prestige
My favourite favourite Christopher Nolan film, grotesquely underrated, sublime performances and the more you watch it, the more you discover.
