    Re: What is your all time favorite movie???

    My first job out of high school was working at a video store. I worked there for almost 2 years. At one point I rented every horror movie starting at Z and going backwards through the alphabet. I have seen A LOT of movies. Many of them were terrible. But that is part of the fun.

    Two I will never forget.. because they were so bad: Le lac des morts vivants AKA Z*mbie Lake and Z*mbie Island Massacre.

    My Favorites would have to be Dawn of the Dead, 28 Days Later and Shaun of the Dead.

    All right folks, enough about the z-movies. As has already been pointed out in this thread, the z-word is filtered by the forum software. Trying to get around that with variant spellings is against the rules. Feel free to talk about your favorite movies, though.

    I'm kinda new here so I'm curious: why is that word filtered out and, assuming the reason has nothing to do with these types of movies, why would using a euphemism be inappropriate? I'm not arguing and will certainly comply with forum policy, I'm just curious.

    Seven Samurai, by Akira Kurosawa. It was the basis of the movie "The Magnificent Seven."

    Other Kurosawa movies have been the basis for several of the "Star Wars" series.

    Kurosawa is, IMO, one of the all-time best directors.

    yeah I don't get it, maybe this is a USA thing. I have seen those morale patches that mention it but I don't get them either??? :shrug:

    All time greats:

    Apocalypse Now
    Heat
    Proposition (OZ film)
    Infernal Affairs (before Scorcese ripped it and did the departed)
    Reservoir Dogs
    Training Day
    Mad Max (Another OZ film)
    No country for old men

    But my all time fave:
    Blade Runner :roof:

    +1 on LOTR. Thankfully it is also my wife's favorite movie so we end up watching the whole thing probably 4 times a year (extended versions, of course!)
    Yes, it does have strange powers. It's the ring, I tell you, the ring! My preeecioussss...

    OK, now that we're talking about just any movie, my vote goes for Forrest Gump

    I got confused with the blocked out word. That's weird.

    Anyways, I saw Qarantine last night. That was pretty good.

    But favorite is I am Legend.

    Between Kurosawa and the last 30 yrs of SciFi/Fantasy, not sure where to start. BladeRunner is in the top 5.

    I've been a huge fan of the Star Wars franchise since I first saw it back in '77.
    I have other favorites but the original Star Wars will always rank at the top.

    Finally, someone else with good tastes. Are you speaking of the 1984 version?

    Tennesse Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire - Marlon Brando
    Smoldering performances from actors with talent that will likely never be equaled.

    John Ford's The Searchers - John Wayne
    By far the Duke's best. A film that is unique among his body of work in that it is a character study vice just a regurgitation of the actor's screen persona that, by that point in his career, he had already fully developed.
