    Twelve Monkeys for me, by quite a long way . I have an appalling taste in films - my favs are American Beauty, The Matrix, The Fifth Element, Resident Evil, A Clockwork Orange, Christiane F, The Breakfast Club, Requiem for a Dream, Sleepy Hollow, A Beautiful Mind, Enigma, Being John Malkovich, The Living Daylights (Bond film), and more recently - the Underworld films , Aeon Flux and the Final Fantasy: Advent Children film .

    And I have to admit that I have now tried to make it through Fight Club three times, to no avail. I can't stand that movie. I can't stand
    jaded oh-so-screwed-up urbanites. I am probably missing the point entirely, but I cannot get past how much those people annoy me. It is such a pretentious movie...Another one is Million Dollar Baby. A terrible movie. Oh, and the worst of all praised movies: Monster's Ball. I hate that movie with a passion. Bloody plantation racism crap.

    If anyone has never seen this movie, it's well worth the rental. You can find it in the foreign films section of your local video store. It is subtitled but after a few minutes it's not even something you notice.

    The Notebook
    Shallow Hal
    Dragonheart
    Edward Scissorhands
    Spirited Away
    Howl's Moving Castle

    I recently went to see Bridge to Terabithia with my mom, and we both really enjoyed it. It's very sad though... pretty much moved me to tears, which doesn't happen very often.

    I can't think of a favorite off the top of my head, but the best movie I've seen in the past few months was Rocky Balboa.
