Favorite movies.
You can only name one...or, if it's a tie, two.

GO.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog. (Little Shop of Horrors is my favorite play and my favorite thing in the world, but not my favorite movie.)

I love your choices, The Chicken Man!

For me, it's Across the Universe. It's a really wonderful movie about a time period I'm fascinated with.

Nightmare Before Christmas is an extremely close second.

I guess I've got a thing for musicals...

Mine would be a tie between The Iron Giant, Up, and Back to the Future.

I <3 Dr. Horrible!!

For me, it's The Incredibles and Toy story 2. Which I prefer depends on my mood. Close second goes to HtTYD, and third is Up. KFP is in the top 5, as well.

Awww, but Rick Moranis is in the movie!

My favorite film of all time is Gone With the Wind. By far.

LET'S TURN A TRAGEDY-DRAMA-HORROR PLAY WITH SOME COMEDY MIXED IN SOME PARTS INTO A COMEDY WITH A HAPPY ENDING WHERE THE MURDERER GETS AWAY WITH HIS CRIMES

I mean, the movie's pretty good with the original ending, but I recommend the play, because telling people "the movie with the original ending is good" causes people to get the DVD rather than watch the proper version online. I lost an internet friend (well, I had to abandon him) because he watched the movie and then said the theatrical ending suits it. Yeah, I'm a hardcore fan.

I mean, the play was a morality tale about how murder is wrong under ALL circumstances, a lesson that some people need to learn. The movie as released not only violates the message, but says that murder is OKAY.

I haven't seen that movie, but I agree with TCM in a general way. You shouldn't taint something's message like that. Or endorse crime.

Has to be Grease, followed by Zulu.

Seeing as I have watched them both for years and years, they never seem to get old and I believe that, 90% of the time, movies you love as a youngster (and back then rate them as one of your favourites) will always remain with you forever. So in that case those two will always be atleast in my top 5. :D
