    What's everyone's favorite movie? I just can't get passed the absolute perfection of Cars. Every time it's on, I watch it.

    "The Sting" seems an appropriate move to post here. One of my personal favorites. Should be a familiar story; its about people that con others out of money. Fits the whole "getting away with it" motif.

    ;)

    Love a bunch of movies, but probably Star Wars EIV and EIII the best. Many other good ones though. Really like Blade Runner! Fletch is a classic funny movie as is Liar Liar... House of Flying Daggers is pretty cool if you don't mind subtitles.

    Toss up between Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List. I've watched Schindler's List twice in a row before. The theme song still chokes me up.

    I remember seeing SPR in the theatre, there were many older viewers in the audience... hundreds of people wept uncontrollably after the landing scene and again at the end. I remember leaving the theatre with my friend and we went to a local coffeeshop hangout and just sat there in shock for an hour or more, not really talking.

    As a child, definitely Star Wars. My son is getting into it now too, and wants a Star Wars party for his birthday. We're going to use my Darth Vader cake pan to make the cake, which I think I got when I was six or seven!

    This question is difficult to answer. Fast and the Furious (just kidding, put your gun away :D), Scarface, Godfather I, The Matrix, Bad boys, Kill Bill, 300, Batman begins, Snatch, Scent of a woman... Tens or maybe hundreds of great movies made... I have a nice home surround system and enjoy a good movie now and then.

    If favorite movie is based on number of times watched without getting tired of it: Transformers! I can not get tired of it. Funny lines, awesome car transforming robots, tons of fantastic action, superb sound with amazing bass with perfect timing... Epic win every time it spins in the player!

    Yes, that piano is chilling. I love that movie and am always stunned that this happened not so long ago. The saddest part is when we see that little girl body, one of the only part of the movie in color.
