    Cinema Paradiso. That movie puts a lump in my throat every time -- probably because I also left my hometown when I was a teen, and I also love the movies, and I also never saw my first love again...

    I didn't want to work. It was as simple as that. I distrusted work, disliked it. I thought it was a very bad thing that the human race had unfortunately invented for itself.

    The Lion In Winter, especially the original version. The dialogue and character interaction is just spectacular and it's one of my favorite historical times and people.

    The 11 hour spectacle that is all three LOTR-Extended Edition films shown back-to-back-to-back.

    2nd place is Highlander

    3rd place is Bloodsport

    Those three films mark the highwater mark of all cinema. The greatest fantasy ever, the greatest movie involving immortal scotsmen beheading people with katanas ever, and the greatest martial arts arena movie of all time. It simply does not get better than that.

    One of my favorite plays and IMHO the all-time greatest on screen performances by both Hepburn and O'Toole.

    But my favorite all-time movie? Hmmm...it's a toss-up. I'm taking Star Wars by a nose over Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and Glory.
