    What's your favorite movie?

    As it stands right now, my favorite movie is probably Signs. It had just enough suspense to keep me on the edge of my seat and some parts made me jump a little. It also had just enough humor as well, and sometimes that's hard to implement into a "horror" movie. Signs as a great movie, but it's too bad there'll never be a sequel.

    My favorite movie of all time is called The Running Man which stars the famous "Aww-nold" and Maria Conchita (?). This movie takes place around 2017 in what used to be L.A. The government controls the media and a popular show called "The Running Man" puts contestants inside a large maze divided into different rounds. In each round there's a different character that the contestants have to beat somehow. The show is rigged; all contestants die, but the audience thinks they win all the time and win the vacation of a lifetime. They think this because the people running the show have new technology where they can make anything happen on-screen...so the audience sees the contestants basking in the sun in Hawaii, when truthfully their corpses are secretly rotting away in the zones. Arnold ends up on that show, but he's going to show the audience the truth along with Maria and put an end to this bloody and messed up show.

    So much action in this movie! I dunno...I like "Aww-nold," what can I say? ^_^

    A 1985 (?) movie by the way.

    Forrest Gump
    Dead Poets' Society
    Finding Forrester
    City of Angels

    Usually, I love to watch good dramas and comedies as well.. There are just too many comedic movies I love and I can't enumerate them all now.

    btw, "The Ring" Japanese version is better (and freakier) than the American version.

    Signs is an awesome movie. There was only one bit that mad me jump a bit, but its still awesome.

    At the moment it would be The Ring. It is awesome. I want to see the Japanese version.

    haha man no offence but "Rome Must Die" has abselutely no plot and I think is one of the dumbest movies ever. Many people like it only because of the rap soundtrack. I donnow what so great people find about this movie :wth:

    Both of the Lord Of The Rings movies are my favorite by far.
    I can't wait until the next one comes out in theaters.
