movies


I just recently met someone who does not like scifi/fantasy movies...I have trouble understanding that...because i, myself get so much joy and entertainment out of that type of movie...

Tell me what is your favourite type of movie?

Did you like the Lord of the Rings trilogy?

Did you like The Star Wars movies?

What is your favourite movie?

I don't know if I have a favorite type of movies . . . I like different movies for different reasons.

I have seen only one of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and I did not care for it so I haven't seen the other two.

I loved all of the Star Wars movies, but that probably stems from me seeing the first 3 when I was a little boy.

I think my favorite movies would be:
Blues Brothers
Slapshot
Raising Arizona

My favorite movie of all time is Lord of the Rings, Extended Edition. I waited 30 years for that movie, after reading the books in college in the 70's. Peter jackson did a wonderful job translating the book into a movie. I only wish there was another 12 hours of film (call it the Extreme Extended Edition!)

My wife used to go see SF movies with me, but, alas, it was only a ruse while we were dating. Once married, she felt (and still feels) no need to pander to the kinds of movies (or music, or anything else) that I like.

First off I love movies.

Unfortunately we rarely go to movies and even the DVDs we own often go unwatched.

I love sports movies and comedies

I've read the Lord of the Rings books a couple times, but have only seen the first one of the trilogy.

I love Star Wars, but haven't seen the last two!

I'm a baseball coach so the Natural is the best; I'm from Iowa so Field of Dreams comes second; and I love comedies so Major League is right up there as well. Also lines from any 80s Bill Murray movie (caddyshack, Stripes, ect) still dominate my vocabulary much like the Adam Sandler movies dominate the kid's vocab today.

Picking just one type is difficult, I enjoy comdies, sci-Fi, horror, action, just about anything. I loved both the lord of thr rings trilogy and the star wars sagas.

My favourite movie is a tie I have seen Animal House and the Exorcist both the same amount of times (280) with the next in line being Heavy Metal

Nice question "Playful" ! I'll answer in reverse order:

4) TopGun, Waterworld, Lord of the Rings, & Signs (okay top four).

3) Loved the Star Wars films... saw them all on opening day; except the first (Episode IV) which I saw on the fourth day of release. Lucas' desire to create a multi-part romantic epic was accomplished (and wow the effects got better too)... my ONLY gripe with the series was Jar-Jar.

2) LOVED the LOR trilogy (the extended CD's were even better) because I'd received the books back in ummm 1977 and have read them every two years since (that's over 15 read-throughs). Oh I NEVER played Dungeons & Dragons, though I painted the figures for my lil brother and his friends. I MISSED the section about Tom Bombadil not making the film though, otherwise the vision that Jackson brought to the screen was stunning.

1) Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Military Action (that is realistic), and Vampire films seem to work best for me... though I'll always cry during almost any Disney/Pixar film. I'm also VERY happy that Sci-Fi Channel (etc) has created some films... "Riverworld" ?

Hmmm favorite jenre... Action Mystery probably though I'm kind of partial to Horror.

Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed the trilogy! I think 2 Towers was my favorite of the 3.

Star Wars? Star Wars you say? Help you I can, Yessss. MMMMM.... You seek Yoda! (in my best chortle imitation)

Oh man... Lets see. My favorite. That's tough. I have so many favorites. But if I could only take one DVD out of my burning house... It'd probably be Silence of the Lambs - No wait... Bone Collector.... Ummm Scarey Movie 2??? Damn... Yeah. Lambs. Definitely, maybe... possibly.

I gotta get my homeowners insurance reviewed. I'll burn to death trying to decide

Yes

Yes

The Exorcist, my favorite type of movie is horror, but I have to take someone to hold me during the scary parts

I'm guessing the Sci-Fi channel gets alot of play at your house.

Favorite Type: Action (be it action/drama, action/comedy, or sci-fi/fantasy with a good deal of action in it)

Lord of the Rings trilogy: Loved it. All of the movies were a blast and my heart literally leapt for joy at the opening scenes of each when I first watched them in the theater.

Star Wars movies: The original trilogy was amazing (even if Luke was the original emo-kid). The new trilogy... mixed feelings. It had great action and some good one-liners, but I really did think Jar Jar deserved to be made into the ever-famous "Bantha fodder." Oh, and Darth Maul was the.best.henchmen.ever. Movie 2 was better than movie one, but still not great, but movie 3 was a total blast. I loved every damn minute of it.

My favorite movie is "Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door" (aka Cowboy Bebop the Movie)

I know what you mean... I know many (women mainly) who have a mindset against si-fi movies and they always say, "I don't want to see that.... that could never happen." I find those movies a welcome escape from reality. My favorite type though is probably suspense.. which usually appears in a si-fi... Love Star Wars.... My favorite movie is Dumb and Dumber because I can watch it over and over and it always brings a smile to my face.

-My favorite movies are science fiction.
-Lord of the Rings was ok, but I couldnt sit through it again.
-Stars Wars sucked ass, why act when it could interfear with special effects. I was very disappointed with the whole series.
-Favorite movies are the Matrix, Pulp Fiction,Dumd and Dumder, and all of the Austin Powers movies.

Favourite type of movie? Most of my DVD's are Action movies.

Did you like the Lord of the Rings trilogy? Never even finished the first one. The only people I know that liked the Ring movies read and liked the books.

Did you like The Star Wars movies? Very much! I think episode III was the best. But Episode IV is my favourite. I think Padm`e only passed out and is still alive. What do yuo think.

What is your favourite movie? All of the Star Trek movies.

Looking at these results is interesting.

Three dick holders so far.

Maybe you should switch to foreign films with subtitles.

Hi Playfull girl,

Sorry I have not come by these parts very often, I need to work on that, LOL

I love movies and books. I like older B&W movies because they have great dialogue, but some of my favorite movies, hmmm OK I am a guy, so Hunt for Red October, Caddy Shack, Shakespere In Love...

My oldest son draged me to the Lord of the Rings series, the last one blew us away.. we really dug it; saw all of the Star War series, we liked the last one, but no acting and no dialogue... just great visual action.

MarkNGeorgia i agree with you completley there...The moment i found out they were making the movies i stopped reading the books (i was halfway through the 2 towers at the time)...I think that was about 10 years ago...so there was a lot of the story that I couldn't rememeber...

For Animal House and The Exorcist hard to explain why they are good...it's just that even after they have been around for 30 years they still have the abilty to make me laff and freak me out severly.

Heavy Metal is just a fond memory from my youth...wicked amimations based on the art and stories from Heavy Metal magazine with a wild soundtrack....was an excellent movie to sit back and trip out on alot like Pink Floyd The Wall. Had to add them all to my DVD collection.

I thought Star Wars I and II were a bit disappointing, but III was just awesome. Loved it. Frickin' brought tears to my eyes, even though you knew what was going to happen, you just couldn't really believe it as you watched it. When Anakin (actually Darth Vader at that point) was at the jedi temple and engaged his lightsaber to kill the younglings.... well, that was a goosebump chill scene if ever there was one. so sad...

i loved The Matrix. the first one just absolutely blew me away. the next two i found disappointing, but i'm not sure if it was because my expectations were too high or what, but the first one.... wow.

i love all kinds of movies, but any movie that can surprise me or that i can't figure out are bound to be my favorites. i HATE predictable crap, which is the main reason most chick flicks bore me. you always know where they're going and where they're going to end up. i hate that.

Some good movies:
Adaptation
About Schmidt
The Matrix
Office Space
Better Off Dead (80's classic)
Fight Club

jimxxx1971 i was disappointed in the first star wars and even more so with the second one...i didn't spend the money to go see the third one...i'll wait until it comes out in dvd probably...

I agree with you on the matrix...ist one rocked...second one was dumb and the third one was even worse...what a crappy way to end the trilogy...in my opinion...
