One of my favs in recent years has to be 'The Big Lebowski'
made by the Cohen brothers.
Jeff Bridges as 'The Dude' and John Goodman as 'Walter'are electric in this comedy/thriller. Brilliant sharp dialogue and highly amusing theme.A cameo role by Sam Elliot as 'The Stranger' is a real gem but Bridges portrayal as 'The Dude' is pure class.

These three:

American Beauty - near perfect cast, script, direction, cinematography, soundtrack...

Serenity - certainly the funiest and most exciting film of 2005, made on the back of a seriously underated TV show. Being a big fan of Buffy, Angel and Firefly, I really wanted this film to be great. It exceeded my expectations in every respect.

Lord of the Rings - Peter Jackson finally turned in what fans of the book, and the fantasy genre in general, had always hoped for but never really expected to get. An awesome achievement.

Have difficulty choosing between "Iris", "The Truce", "The Pianist" and "Sopie's Choice" with Merryl Streep and the briliant Kevin Kline.

These are films I think back to in a lost moment, so they must be special somehow.

I certainly agree with Camille Claudel - a brilliantly acted film.

Others I like:

The Usual Suspects
Layer Cake
Pulp Fiction
Sexy Beast

I'm with you there, I can't count the number of times I've watched Withnail, every line is quotable, I never tire of it.

Pete, Is there something you're trying to tell us?

Not really a film fan - I prefer more interactive activities! Wink

Therefore it takes a film with something extra, or a bit different, to make an impact. These are the few films I have bothered to watch more than once:


American Beauty

Sixth Sense

Difficult choice, but I'll go for Once Upon a Time in the West, with Charles Bronson, Henry Fonda, Jason Robards & Claudia Cardinale. An epic, sweeping western with a beautiful soundtrack.

Difficult to pick between Brazil and Bladerunner.

Reasons ?

If you don't know by now, there's no point in telling you.

Laurance of Arabia.

Because I just love looking at it.

It's a Wonderful Life.

Because it's so uplifting.

Stand By Me.

Because I think it was the best adaptation of a stephen King book yet.
