These questions are never easy for me. I mean honestly, how are you supposed to pick just one? I've been thinking of this answer off and on most of the night. Would I go with my all time favourite movie from when I was much younger?
The problem is there were two movies I watched at least 10 times over, if not many more:
I love both of these for various reasons.
Stand by Me because its a damn good film and not just because I had a major crush on both Kiefer Sutherland and River Phoenix when I was younger. It's just a very good film. The acting was superb especially when you consider the cast consisted of predominately teenagers.
The Princess Bride... well I love the quirky spin on this story about true love, princesses and torture. I can tell you what most of the characters are going to say before they say their lines themselves. I love it that much.
I have also read both books these movies are based on... again, more than once.
If it came down to it though, I would have to say the winner for my all time favourite is Stand By Me.
A few other movies that stand at the top of my list:
Sense & Sensibility
The Shawshank Redemption
The Bridges of Madison County
Burn After Reading
The Truman Show
The Usual Suspects
The Lost Boys
Thelma & Louise
What's Eating Gilbert Grape (I forgot to mention Johnny Depp as one of my fav actors in my first post)
and of course more recently:
The King's Speech and 127 Hours
