Dawn of the Dead is my favorite zombie movie.

The Big Lebowski
Army of Darkness

Indiana Jones Movies

A lot of films I really like have already been mentioned. Here are a few more I think are worth checking out:
The Reflecting Skin
A disturbing film by Philip Ridley about a little boy thinks his neighbor is a vampire. This gorgeous film was made to look like an Andrew Wyeth painting. It isn't on DVD as far as I know. Check it out if you find it on VHS. I would love to see them release this widescreen on DVD.
The Man Who Wasn't There
The Coen's offbeat take on film noir. Excellent script and characters. Plenty of great plot twists. Gorgeous black and white cinematography by Roger Deakins.
Still my favorite Peter Jackson film. Inventive camerawork and direction, great script and performances. The longer, original NZ cut is the only version out on DVD right now available in widescreen. The shorter, international cut is Jackson's preferred version (I like it better, too) but it, unfortunately, is currently only available in pan and scan. (Write Miramax!)
This John Frankenheimer classic from 1966 is like a feature length version of a Twilight Zone episode. Features great creepy black and white cinematography by James Wong Howe. Its kind of a sci-fi /thriller /drama about an old bank president who pays a secret organization to get his youth back.
Chistopher Nolan's 16mm feature debut is a great example of no-budget guerilla filmaking. I personally liked it better than its larger budget followup Memento. Great twist ending.
A Sign From God
Greg Watkins' quirky indie comedy loosely based on real life experiences of frequent collaborator Caveh Zahedi. About an eternally optimistic indie filmaker having a really, really bad day trying to keep it together with his girlfriend. If you like this, you might also enjoy these Zahedi/Watkins collaborations: "A Little Stiff" and "I Don't Hate Las Vegas Anymore"
Hal Hartley's strangely funny story about a garbage man who is inspired by an ex-con to write poetry. Not currently on DVD, but you might find it on VHS.
One Hour Photo
Robin Williams put in a suprisingly creepy performance as a one-hour photo developer who develops an obsession with a suburban family. Mark Romanek directed this unconventional thriller which features a really excellent visual style.

Wizard of Oz
Texas chainsaw massacre
It is waking life. thanks!
I just bought pi and I liked it. I had seen it mentioned here, and had always wanted to see it. It's a diff. type of movie, which is good, and I enjoyed the independant movie feel it had.
oh, yes... mary shelley's frankenstein. (this movie rocks, especially cuz robert deniro is frankenstein)
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.

I'd have to go with:
Silence of the Lambs
Virus (awesome gory robots.)
Tears of the Sun
Black Hawk Down
Saving Private Ryan
Full Metal Jacket
Oh and Pi. it's about a mathematician who, i guess, wants to find all the numbers in pi, and then he starts to take speed and other drugs to keep himself awake, then he starts hallucinating. like there's a part where he sees a brain sitting on the subway tracks, and there's a train coming. then, he pokes the brain with a pen, and then he's inside of the train. then he pulls out and he's on the tracks and it's closer. creepy.
Hey. A freind of mine just made me watch really good French movie called "Le Pacte des Loups" or "The brotherhood of the Wolf." It's a sort of monster movie that takes place in pre-revolutionary France . A royal Taxidermist and his native American partner are trying to hunt down a creature that's been terrorising a country side. The story might sound familiar but it's very original and full of really strange twists and a great creature design...and Monica Bellucci.
here's the website.
yeah, brotherhood was high class smut.
The God Father
Pink Flyoid - The Wall
ment that I liked Le Pacte des Loups very very much.Originally posted by jwo
yeah, brotherhood was high class smut.
and i dont wanna talk about reloaded :bheart:
The 'rave' scene in the Matrix did ruin part of the movie.
As did -for most people- the monologue of the Architect.
Nonetheless i've seen it 5 times now and it is a good movie. The depth in the story is more hidden than in the first one though. I like all the hints and the omens within the movie and for revolutions. The story can go many ways from here.
Well... it's still a good movie.
Not good: X-Men 2. Even with Famke Jansen. It has its moments but also parts that are very weak and obvious.
Power is nothing without intelligence.
Le roi et l'oiseau
I agree with cityworker; I never get tired of watching 'Goonies'...
...I also put 'Labyrinth' and 'Neverending Story' at the top of my list. I love 80's fantasy movies.
I am also obsessed with the FIRST 'Matrix' movie. No, not 'Reloaded' or 'Revolutions'--those two sucked stinky ass and made me lose my faith in the Wachowskis altogether.
And yeah, 'Run Lola Run' as well as 'Life is Beautiful' are my favorite foreign films, though I never get to see that many of them. I like 'Shaolin Soccer' too--hilarious!
The Transporter (Sooo through and through cool.)
Paths of Glory
