LoTR are the best movies ever!!!!!!!!! The Harry Potter movies are good to, but their nothing compared to the books. I also really like Chick Flicks like Leagally Blond and The Princess Diaries. Shrek is relly great too.

Well, my all-time favorites would have to be:

1. Spiderman - really, this was good...the history of me liking this movie is way too cute...before the movie, I don't even like Spiderman so much I stayed away from it that I didn't know who MJ was, lol
2. The Mummy Series - I so love Brendan and Rachel here...they're the best, but I think the first part is better
3. So Close (Asian Movie) - just another action movie but I love the message they portrayed here...I really like the younger sister here
4. The Hackers - that was because i'm a frustrated Hacker...but have no fear...I have no talent for even if it will cost my life
5. Interview With The Vampire - does this movie needs an explanation? I've seen only half of the movie but I adore it to no end...Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise, mou! Kirsten was so lucky!

and forgot the others... /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

I love 101 Dalmations, the animated version. It's my favorite, hands down. I know I'm a little old for children's movies, but they kinda have a place in you when you watch them hundreds of times as a tike. I also really like The Wizard of Oz, although alot of people tell me it's creepy. I didn't think so /happy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="^_^" border="0" alt="happy.gif" />

I'm a huge film afficianado, and I'm extremely selective about which films I watch and/or consider "good movies". Watching movies is an art, just as making movies is an art. Some movies are insults to the craft, but others are masterworks. Here are my top five favourite movies of all time...

Gladiator
Pride and Prejudice (A&E version starring Colin Firth)
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
Shadowlands
Casablanca

Other movies I'm in love with....

Sense and Sensibility
Braveheart
The Ten Commandments
Gone With the Wind
The Phantom of the Opera
Peter Pan (with Jason Isaacs, not animated Disney version)
Ghost
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Doctor Zhivago
Roman Holiday
Harvey

I think a good an interesting movie is the sixth sense. Because involves a topic normally different about the idea of death people.
Also Harry Potter PoA, as well as Traffic this movie is very interesting because it shows a reflect of very common lifestyle in the us mexican border.
