Hey guys, wanted to know what are your favourite movies. Do you like going to the movies? You prefer to wait for torrents/BluRays and watch them at home? Popcorn or some other snack?

What has kept me calm, when I was out of job (like... this past few months), or depressed, was movies and I've been watching a movie a day for the past two years and it's a great escape.

I can actually count the number of movies I've watched on two hands. Out of the very few I've watched though, Airplane is my favourite by a very long way. It's a timeless comedy!

Most of my favorite movies are comedies, my favorite non-comedy is probably Rocky.

Love Airplane. Some time after that I saw Top Secret, with Val Kilmer, not as funny, but when The Naked Gun series appeared I couldn't stop laughing.

I have a soft spot for Rocky. Loved every single entry. (Perhaps V not as much as the others.) :lol:

I watch movies all the time, I love a good drama or anything expansive. I'm also a sucker for something really quiet and character driven. Favourite films are probably Lawrence of Arabia, Call Me By Your Name, There Will Be Blood and the 1986 Transformers movie (which I'm pretty sure I can quote almost word for word :lol:)

There Will Be Blood is probably on my top 5, ever.

I saw First Man yesterday and was blown away.

That's a solid top 10. A lot of classics in there.

Have you ever seen Way Of The Gun? It's sort of a post modern take on a western meets crime drama.

Man, I could make a case for 2001 A Space Odyssey, Rocky, Alien, RoboCop, Hoop Dreams... it's tough!

Anything share-worthy here, guys? Since the last time I replied here, I've started a nice job, and this weekend is the 7-month anniversary with my girlfriend. So -- my one-movie-a-day plan is dead, but I did set up myself to watch ten movies a month. I think it's a reachable goal.

Loved Ford v Ferrari this past weekend; saw Blade Runner for the 5th time (it is now, my favourite ever); saw Bong Joon Ho's Parasite (go watch it now); also In The Realm of Perfection, a John McEnroe documentary; Lawrence of Arabia for the first time; Ad Astra, probably my 2019 fav; also Joker (great) and Midsommar (not so much).
