As others have said, I'm not able to choose a best film. Probably my favourite film that I can watch again and again is The Italian Job (the original obviously!).

My taste in films (most things) is eclectic.

The Apartment has been my favourite film since I realised I liked films and nothing has toppled it from top spot yet. Sublime acting from Jack Lemmon - and Shirley MacLaine looking good enough to eat! Closely followed by Bob Hoskins in The Long Good Friday - the look on Bob's face at the end says so much. A superb actor in his own way.

Anything with Marilyn Monroe in it. Deeply in love - what can I say?

The first Alien film - superb mix of Horror and Suspense in the guise of SciFi.

Just watched Under the Skin (last night) and now I've had a chance to analyse it think it could be a contender. Maybe need to watch it again but I think I get it.

Terminator 2

There were no more Terminator movies after that!
That's because they have yet to travel back in time! :lol:

I like the Terminator films, but my all time go-to movies are 'Shawshank Redemption', (despite wondering how Andy Dufrene got the poster back over his tunnel), 'The Green Mile' and the Indiana Jones series. (Jury still out on 'The Crystal Skull'! )

I watch 'Con Air' a lot 'cos I think John Malkovitch is quite entertaining. Which opens the door to 'In The Line of Fire', and the 'RED' movies, more of my faves.

Right, that's enough of that, and you might realise I like action/adventure movies! :ho2

And Paul200, Me too in love! What can I say?

How about the old Ealing Comedies,Passport to Pimlicoe, Whiskey Galore, The Lavender Hill Mob et al, The original Brighton Rock, Maltese Falcon, Rear Window, North by Nort West, The Northwest Frontier,The Birds,True Romance and Lock, Stock and two smoking barrels.

I'm also trying to find an old film that I always thought was an Ealing Comedy but it appears not. I can't remember its title but it was very much in the Ealing mould. As I recall it featured a chap who bought a new pair of trousers and found that every time he put his hand in his pocket he pulled out a fiver, starts off as a lark, always his round in the pub etc. But as time goes on the never ending supply of cash starts to affect the nations finances and he eventually agrees to hand over the trousers to the authorities. The film ends with a ceremonial burning of said trousers at the Royal Mint and the presentation of a replacement pair on behalf of a grateful nation. Closing scene is the hero walking off in his new strides whistling, puts his hands in his pockets and pulls out a fiver.

Anyone recognise it, I'd love to see it again?

I'm quite a big fan of The Man with No Name Trilogy, especially The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

I also quite enjoyed Oldboy for its acting and story, but a very dark film though.

I used to love Gangster films especially Godfather, Goodfellas and Casino. Also really enjoyed The Departed.

As far as Brad Pitt is concerned his best roles will always be Snatch or Burn After Reading (another great John Malkovich experience as well).

Recent big hit from Brad Pitt for me is 'Fury'. Not been out long and have watched it twice.

Jeez this is one of the hardest question to give a definitive answer to , many of the films mentioned would deffo be in my top 100 list - here goes
all time favourite - director's cut BLADE RUNNER
Das Boot for its realistic scenes of war in a sub much praise to anyone who served in all submarine services
[ german/yank/jap/brit ]
any of these Passport to Pimlicoe, Whiskey Galore, The Lavender Hill Mob et al, smoking barrels.
Then there is Alien [ 1 ]
the first James Bond with DC. and the early Sean Connery Bond films remeber watching them in B&W on the tv when one had to get off one's buttocks to switch on/off and change channnels PMSL
Loads more but would take a bloody long time to type up

Wishing all you makers of shavings and wood dust a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016

Very difficult question this as there are so many memorable movies. i think my ultimate favourite which i have watched many times has to be 'The killing fields' but I do like movies based on true events. Have to say Terminator 1 was the best for me as it was so new and unusual. After that one they relied too much on the effects for me. Another memorable one was 'Behind enemy lines' There are just too many good ones.
