    The movie that had the largest impact on me was Schindler's List.

    After that it would be The Game (MIchael Douglas) and I thought Signs was a great scary, makes you think, movie.

    Rebecca- It's an old movie You guys have to watch-LOL-You'll imitate a certain character for a week!!

    Silence of the Lambs

    Anthony Hopkins was frigging AWESOME. I fell in love with him after that movie. Great story. They made you actually like the killer cause of his suave persona and brilliant mind. Not your run-of-the-mill serial killer flick. Jodie Foster was kick ass too. Was interesting rooting for both sides cause they were both so likeable. The first serial killer movie where you were actually glad he got away.

    Hopkins was, but I wasn't (glad he got away). His character was still an evil killer who should have been taken out of circulation. The fact that he had tracked down the amoral prison chief at the end was ironic justice, but still not satisfying to me, despite his help in capturing Buffalo Bill. Those 2 slaughtered guards alone made his escape wrong.

    BTW, my own favorite movie... I dunno, too many, and depends on my mood. I think Citizen Kane is sheer genius, Gone With the Wind a masterpiece, the first Star Wars breathtaking, the first Indiana Jones a constant thrill, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert campy fun, Victor/Victoria the most beautifully crafted thing Blake Edwards ever made. And those are just for starters. icon_biggrin.gif

    Camp (great singing and love the plot!)
    Kill Bill Vol. 1 (wow, was Uma Thurman not crunk as shit? Plus, I love me some Vivica Fox and Lucy Liu. All the women were strong and ran some shit.)
    Basic Instinct (It made Sharon Stone a star and a household name. She was hot as shit in the movie, and the plot rocked.)

    Blade Runner
    History of the World Part 1 (I cried after the opening skit because it was so British, and I'd been stuck speaking French all summer. "Mr Creosote" and "The Inquisition" were fantastic skits.)
    Moulin Rouge (It's mediocre, I know, but I love the anachronistic songs.)

    Pre coming-out my favorite movies were:
    1) A Chorusline, the only movie I ever saw in 2 consecutive showings, saw this 8 times in movie-theaters, also a personal record. The gay characters, the singing and dancing was so exhilarating I wanted to become a dancer (for a short time) Even though I own the DVD I've watched the movie only 3 or 4 times in the last 10 years

    2) Furyo - Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, this made me a fan of Ryuichi Sakamoto, he was hot in that movie and his soundtrack is amazing. And the story of David Bowie's POW and RS's POW-camp-warden being in love had such incredible moments. Since coming out I've seen the movie only a handful of times.

    Since then I had only one more movie I saw a couple of times:
    Near Dark - Director Kathryn Bigelow has an incredible visual style and the last 20 min of the movie are a total nail-biter. When exchanging body-fluids with another man could kill me, watching Vampires living of sucking blood was incredibly exciting, symbolized (anxiety-) free sex for me.

    My ultimate favorite movie it "Breakfast Club". SUCH A CLASSIC! I like it because it goes to show you that steriotypes do exist, yet, just because those steriotypes exist we can all still accept each other for who we are.

    My next favorite movie is "Meet Joe Black". Not only because Brad Pitt is FRIGGIN BEAUTIFUL in it and Anthony Hopkins is a fantastic actor. I like it because it is a story about a powerful connection between two people....even though they don't know why this connection exists or why it is so powerful they let their inhibitions go and follow an unknown path lead by their hearts and not their minds. I'm NOT a mushy love story movie kind of guy but this one is really great.

    Citizen Kane, of course, but beyond that, probably Vertigo or Chinatown, because they so intensely make us face realities that most people would choose to ignore.

    I began pulling old films out of my vhs drawers, out of boredom with the new stuff. I was surprised that Silence of the Lambs still is an awesome film after almost 20 years. Good lord I've bedded men that age recently. Thelma and Louise too. It's still in my why-did-I-stop-watching-it-compulsively file, after watching once a week for a month. For recent stuff, I love I Am Legend up until the chick shows up in act III. I can't understand what she says so I turn it off then. Tom Cruise's War of the Worlds is awesome for special affects, and his hot young 17 year old son, who is really a 23 year old guy from up here in Canada, is one of the best films of the last decade.

    "Heaven Can Wait" with Warren Beatty & Julie Christie. Just had a sweetness to it and the story was clever and funny. "E.T." would be a close second.

    Harold and Maude
    Being There: I have yet to see a Hal Ashby film I didn't like.
    The Stuntman: the best movie about a movie that may or may not be a movie. Peter O'Toole is divine.
    The Raspberry Reich: because Bruce LaBruce isn't just a genius, he is one of our geniuses. Why is he a genius? Because he may have cast our own Stripper Rocco in a queer zombie film.
