Impressive list, Boaz!

If I listed ALL of my faves, it might be as long...

But with a lot more horror flicks.  ;)

It's just a cut copy and paste of the first three pages of this thread ... then I got tired

Always a Bruce Campbell fan, saw BHT about a dozen times on teevee (butchered) but don’t recall seeing the “real” movie intact. Gotta do that…

LOVE Bubba Ho-Tep.

My Name is Bruce is right up there too.

MNIB was a hoot, too. All the hidden bottles everywhere was hilarious. LOL

 

And I love the flick “Tornado!“.

No, not “Twister” (which I liked, don’t get me wrong). Same year for both (‘96), but I think “Tornado!” was way better. No flying cows, etc. And the devastation scenes hit pretty hard. It was great seeing Bruce in a serious role.

I saw The Dead Zone (1983).

It was pretty good.

Some Stephen King movies aren't all that great, but I liked this one.

David Cronenberg + Christopher Walken is a hell of a pairing.

A bit of an understatement. lol

I saw Constantine (2005).

I really liked this movie.

Keanu Reeves did an excellent job.

I just sat and watched “RED
the first of the Frank Moses movies.
Great actors. skilled relaxed, very natural.
and great comedy.

Even better than the third or fourth time I watched.

Just like Constantine. Something you can sit. relax. enjoy.
and look forward to watching again, sometime in the future.

Finally got around to watching the actual movie “Bubba Ho-Tep”.

Wow, butchered was right. So many parts were just never in the butchered-for-teevee version.

This was like watching a totally different movie. So much more… complete.

I saw Witness for the Prosecution (1957).

I really liked it.

I like courtroom dramas, and mysteries, and this is a pretty good one.

I saw Double Indemnity (1944).

It's another mystery directed by Billy Wilder, the director of Witness for the Prosecution.

It's also pretty good, especially if you like film-noir.

 

In the 1990's, I repeatedly watched Fatal Instinct (1993).

It's a spoof of a bunch of movies, including Double Indemnity.

It's directed by Carl Reiner.

It's absolutely hilarious, if you like rude humor.

I'm surprised it has such a low score on IMDb--because I loved it.

Maybe people don't like it because it's so immature.

I saw Taxi Driver (1976).

Not a whole lot happens in the movie, but I liked it.

It has good atmosphere, nice music, and great acting.

I saw Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017).

It was very good.

It's a drama with a lot of verbal confrontations, and a fair amount of violence.

The movie ends abruptly, but the acting was excellent.

I saw Moon (2009).

It was amazingly good.

I'm surprised the budget was only $5 million.

There wasn't a very large cast, but it seemed to be a much bigger budget film.

It is one of the best sci-fi movies I have ever seen.

I saw eXistenZ (1999).

It was pretty good.

It start out a little slow, but the ending was pretty amazing.

I think you have to be a fan of sci-fi to like it, and it helps if you like realistic video games.

It had some very good acting for a horror film.

I saw The Best Offer (2013).

It was an excellent mystery.

Donald Sutherland plays a small part, and I like him as an actor.

All the acting in the movie is really good.

I especially liked the ending.

All these are new favorites of all times?

Damn, I gotta get hooked on a movie, watch it a few dozen times, then it becomes one of my favorites. LOL

If I watch a movie once, and I really like it, it's a fave of all time for me.

I rarely watch a movie more than once, and about three quarters of all movies that I see aren't all that great don't make the favorite list.

Any of the old Star Wars. Closely followed by the Goonies. Smile
I like just about anything really though.

Just please, for the love of B’harni (pbuh!), don’t watch “Breaking Barbi“.

I just skimmed, watching maybe 30sec at a time then jumping 5min forward, etc., and I could actually feel my IQ dropping about a dozen points each time.

I think I’ve suffered irreparable brain damage from that movie.

I saw It Chapter Two (2019).

I loved this movie.

I think I liked this film more than the first chapter.

The music and acting were superb.

There was plenty of action even though it was a quite long, and the movie was creepy.

Overall, an excellent horror flick.

(Stephen King has a pretty good cameo as well.)

Just perusing, I caught his cameo, too. LOL
