    Well, here are some of my favorites, not necessarily in this order at all times but this is close at least:

    My top 10 favorite movies:

    1. The Matrix - The first Matrix. The 2nd and 3rd were decent but felt more like a TV show with some of the Matrix characters in it.
    2. Lord of the Rings - I count them all as one because they were filmed as one story.
    3. Antitrust - Great computer thriller/suspense flick. Definitely a sleeper hit though.
    4. Jurassic Park - The first one. (Second was decent, third was one of the worst movies ever made). I have always loved dinosaurs. The book was better than the movie though.
    5. Batman Begins - Such a good movie. The best "comic book" movie I have ever seen.
    6. Braveheart - Doesn't need to be justified. It's Braveheart.
    7. GoldenEye 007 - Followed closely by Casino Royale, but I'm not going to list 2 Bond movies in my top 10.
    8. Independence Day - I like worldwide destruction movies, sci-fi, Jeff Goldblum, and Will Smith, so what more could I ask for?
    9. iRobot -Awesome futuristic movie.
    10. The 6th Day - Probably the only Arnold Schwarzenegger movie that will make it on my top 10 favorite movies list.. It's actually really good.

    Notice I have no comedies in my top 10? I like them but I prefer action or epic movies (No, not "Epic Movie") to comedies. I have seen a ton of movies though and I could probably do a top 100 list if I had time. :)

    I have a lot, so let's see if I can make the list down to 10

    The Lord Of The Rings (I just love medieval war movies like this, this one really got me.
    Star Wars (I just love those movies that you can watch over and over again and still enjoy
    Patriot (The storyline is really good)
    Antitrust (I think that this is where N.U.R.V. came from, I definitely recognize the name)
    Batman Begins (Great special effects and action scenes, lives up to the Batman standards
    What About Bob? (This is by far the funniest movie ever made)
    Jungle 2 Jungle (For those of you who have seen it you know why)
    The Matrix (It was the first movie of it's kind, really creative storyline)
    Red Eye (One Of The greatest movies that takes place on a plane, definitely followed closely by Flightplan)
    Pirates Of The Caribbean (Great pirate movie, no other movies can compare)

    I could go on for ages listing my favourites but I'll narrow it down to 10 just to give an idea of my tastes.

    Memento - A real brain work out
    The Matrix - Just the first one for me too :lol:
    Fight Club - Great acting and dialogue
    Oldboy - This is a must see for anyone looking for something a bit different
    Spider-man 2 - Im only putting one superhero film in and spidey wins for me
    Donnie Darko - A cult classic
    American Beauty - Good food for thought
    Waynes World - Sillyness at its best
    Training Day - A bit on the obsurd side at times but again more good acting and dialogue
    The Prestige - Nolan can do no wong for me.

    Doc Trust me, I'm The Doctor. V.I.P.

    I’m a huge movie fan, so this list might run a little long. I did some formatting to help it along. They’re not really in any order, though.
    Requiem for a Dream – I’m usually a fan of the independent flicks, and the portrayal of the addicts in the movie. It’s shot in a realistic way, and was written very well.

    Half Baked – Ah, the classic “stoner comedy.” Young Dave Chapelle is amazingly funny, and I’ve loved the guy since long before Chapelle’s show. Don’t forget the supporting cast and cameos, either. Half Baked is just a fun movie to watch with friends.

    Blow – Another movie on the serious side, made great by Depp and Cruze. While more of an entertainment movie, it is based off of a true story. Another good one to pick up and watch whenever you want some good entertainment.

    The Jersey Trilogy – The name refers to the “Jay and Silent Bob” movies, and the Clerks cartoon series. While they aren’t great by any stretch, you can tell that Smith put his heart and soul into the movies and holds them very close to him. The storylines, repeating characters, and crude humor are what makes these movies some of my favorites.

    Robin Hood: Men in Tights – Mel Brooks at his best. Another Dave Chapelle movie that I’ve watched since long before he was popular. Funny all around, and a half decent story to mix with it.

    Without a Paddle – A very fun movie, lots of adventure, and it’s very funny. Who doesn’t want to go treasure hunting?

    The Boondock Saints – A movie that I feel deserves a sequel. It’s mostly speaking out at the problems with our system. It’s got crazy Irish guys, guns, and a cross-dressing Willem DeFoe. Sounds like a winner to me.

    American History X – My fav., and probably will be for a long time. Deep story, great acting, and extremely well written.

    Trilogies:
    Lord of the Rings
    Back to the Future
    Indiana Jones
    Star Wars
    Pirates of the Caribbean

    I don’t think I really need to go into much detail for why I like these trilogies; I like them for most of the same reasons.

    I also really, really like mafia movies and westerns. Clint Eastwood, Pachino, and DeNiro; I’ll watch just about anything by any of them. I also really like the Matrix movies, and most of Adam Sandler’s movies.

    I forgot about The Island. Anybody ever seen that movie, it's by far my favorite futuristic movie, high above Star Wars or iRobot.
