The Banshees of Inisherin. It is beautifully written screenplay that is deeply affecting, warmly humorous, well acted and beautiful photographed on one of Ireland’s beautiful west coast island. The film explores such huge ideas as the meaning of life, while simultaneously looking at the micro-aggressions of two stupid men with no capacity to deal with their own emotions.
Avatar Way of Water
You can’t go wrong with Raiders of the Lost Ark – it’s the perfect movie!
Mine best film of all time is Wakanda. Beautifully made scenery, inspiring exciting. It was wonderful and inspirational, loving, strong woman in it, the story was beautiful, and everyone could relate to it
Elvis was definitely my favorite movie. They did an amazing job portraying the King of Rock & Roll. I love MHOTC as they offer so much information and events to the people.
A long time ago old movie that really impressed me was To Sir with Love. Loved the compassion and portrayal of love
Sounds like fun!
Monty Python, it;s a classic – you still hear people making the comments. from in the film!!
Love the movies. My favorite is “Star Wars”
My favorite movie of all time is Les Miserables as I loved the play and the music is beautiful.
No Country for Old Men
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid – Paul Newman & Robert Redford starring together IN THE SAME FILM! Need I say more? OK – exciting action, humorous scenes, great drama & suspense. This flick has it ALL!
Dirty Dancing! I love the music soundtrack. :)
pretty woman has always been one of my favorites.
One flew over the cookoo’s nest
My favorite film is “Pulp Fiction”. It was so original! I had never seen anything like it!
Mine is Titanic, because I watched it on my sweet 17
Sound of Music
I would have a difficult time picking an all-time favorite. However, the one I have probably watched the most is Empire Strikes Back, because… “I know.”
Grosse Point Blank is my favorite. The humor never gets old.
The Way We Were
Such a beautiful and heartbreaking love story. And Robert Redford and Barbara Streisand are so good and it’s REAL. Not a typical Hollywood ending (although there is nothing wrong with typical endings) thank you
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory from 1971. It’s sweet, funny and imaginative with some good messages for kids of all ages. Always LOVE Gene Wilder too.
The Godfather is my favorite American film of all time! I have seen it, literally, countless times and have never grown tired or it! It is glorious! The directions is stellar! Also, what Coppola went through to get this masterpiece made iOS almost unbelievable. Great acting, great story. And we’ll, of course, Brando!
Thanks for the opportunity! Have a great day!
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. I have a love for a fantasy movie. This movie captures all of the elements of a beloved movie for me! Epic movie!
Love classic cars and combo with a horror flick and I am a happy girl
Avatar!!! No explanation needed!
I liked the music of strangers, a documentary about yoyo ma and the silk road ensemble because of the music excellence and cultural connections.
It’s so hard to choose just one! Some of my favorites include Love Actually, Big Fish, Mansfield Park, Pride and Prejudice, and Nightmare Before Christmas.
Harold and Maude. Maude is my role model.
Dumb and Dumber. Saw how dumb everything really is.
Top Gun & :TG Maverick is my all-time fave! Can’t beat a great action movie full of amazing air stunts and acrobatics. The music keeps you engaged and on the edge of your seat! I hope they win a much deserved Academy award this year!!!
My favorite film is Top Gun because I wanted to be a fighter pilot in my country and went to special schooling for 7 years preparing for it and I didn’t make it due to health reasons.
I do not have a favorite movie. I have many, many, favorites. I will share the movie that made me love going to the movies. Mary Poppins. It is the first movie I asked to see in a theater more than once, celebrated my birthday around and went to school with me every day in my Mary Poppins lunch box.
Fried Green Tomatoes is my all time favorite movie but there are so many great ones. I hope Elvis will win this year but it seems my least favorite always wins Best Movie award. Therefore,I predict that Banshee of Inisherin will win this year. I thought it was a depressing story about friendship, depression and mental illness.
My favorite movie is Avatar so far. The story and the photography were great. You get so involved you believe the fantasy.
There are far too many great films but if I had to pick one I’ll choose Inglorious Bastards. I think it was one of Tarantino’s top 3 best of all time. It had a great storyboard n cinematography, great cast and writing, a healthy balance of witty humor and action, and those tense scenes that the director instills in the audience so well.
Elvis – it was a great film!
My favorite film of all time is I Feel Pretty starring Amy Schumer. Although this is far from an award winning movie, I love it because when I am down about myself it makes me happy and has a lot to say for it, honestly. I am a big Oscar person. I watch every movie and have won an Oscar contest 3 years in a row. Would love to win this!!!
Top Secret with a young stunning Val Kilmer. Hilarious!!! Have watched it over and over and it always delivers!
Run Lola Run! It has everything! You immediately dive into the first person experience of someone racing against the clock. It’s all action and excitement while you’re left to figure out what is happening and then suddenly, the urgency makes sense and just as you realize this, the ending unfolds into something terrible. But wait, it’s actually not over at all because here we find ourselves back at the beginning again, like a choose your own adventure novel. We are again racing against the clock and know that every little choice made can affect the outcome of the story. Then it’s let the games begin! It’s intense and emotional and you’re constantly second guessing choices made. What a trip!
I loved the Sandlot. It’s so true to what childhood was like for me. I wholeheartedly recommended it to everyone and it’s great for all ages.
2001 A Space Odyssey. May be the most significant film about the human journey.
I love Casablanca. Such a classic story. Only in black and white though. I think the acting is great and so is the song as time goes by.
The Lady and the Tramp is such a classic. This is a movie I can watch over and over. It’s so cute.
When Harry Met Sally, Dr. Zhavago & Camelot…notice a theme here? Call me old fashioned, but me luvs a love story that doesn’t require showing the act (of faking love)
The Breakfast Club is my all-time favorite movie of all time. It represents my generation very well,it brings me back to my innocent high school days. Great cast, great story line.
Too many to pick one – all depends on my mood! If in the mood for comedy, something like “The Producers” (original with Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder) or a Monty Python movie. But those wouldn’t do if I’m in the mood for action or serious or romance, etc., so how can I choose just one?!
Here Comes the Boom!
Family friendly stupidity 🤣
My favorite film is Sense and Sensibility. The music, script, acting and scenery are so beautiful.
Mary Poppins…I saw it for the first time when I was 5 years old; I had my 5th birthday party at the movie with a few friends who were all dressed up in our mother’s old prom gowns. In the almost 60 years since, I have seen the movie close to one -hundred times, can sing every song, and LOVE the film from beginning to end! It’s definitely my all-time favorite movie.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall it’s so funny and I love the beautiful scenery in it and it has great actors including one of my faves Jason Segal !
Fantastic acting and an excellent story. The characters are some of the best in any movie out there. I love everything about this movie. I also love that it is based on a true story.
Of all time?? The Book of Elil
“Almost Famous” — just watched it last night, actually! It’s full of comfort and nostalgia and a love for music. The writing and the acting are so memorable, and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve found different things to notice or appreciate each time I watch it. A simple, meaningful movie with a big heart.
The Dark Knight. Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker never ceases to amaze me.
Gone with the Wind – drama love story
Wizard of Oz because it is so awe inspiring
“The Graduate”. Dustin Hoffman was so great in it!
SHREK! Funniest & cutest movie with an all star cast & great storyline. Can never not be happy watching Shrek 💚
