So what are your favourite films/most disliked films?

I can't think of any films I particularly hate.

Three n Out with Mackenzie Crook is darkly comic n sad yet happy. I tend to like films that others' haven't even heard of! I do like a good horror too.

I like gangster films- The Godfather is probably my favourite but I really liked The Departed as well.

Too many to pick from... I think Airplane! and Kung Fury are tied right now for favourite, and Birdemic can go die in a hole

I don't like horror or scary movies they make me to nervous, jumpy :)
I like action movies and humor.

All time favorites Ace ventura, can watch these over and over.
I really like Jim Carry, the first movie I ever bought was The Mask (on a videocassette) :)

Also Quentin Tarantino movies, because they're so unpredictable I guess.
Time is something that may change me, but I can't change time so f*** it.

My favorite film is 'doubt' with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams---written like a Greek Tragedy---there is no answer to the doubt but everyone has one, and the answer is always their projection because there is no proof either way.

I'm a bit of a film addict, so I won't be able to fit all my favourites in this post!

'Doubt' is indeed a good film; compelling and well acted.

I'm a big fan of Michael Haneke and Todd Solondz, and have seen most of their films. 'Cache' Haneke's best and 'Happiness' is Solondz best, in my opinion. Both are full on, theme-wise.

In the horror genre, Ben Wheatley's 'Kill List' is one of my favourites. 'Paranormal Activity' was a clever, but like most horror films it became an overcooked franchise with a story arc that became ridiculous. 'The Exorcist' is also a classic, though these days it looks like more of a drama than a horror.

I quite like Kubrick and Tarantino; haven't seen all their films but they're usually quite impressive, bar a few duds.

I think I might stop there before I get carried away...

There's a horror film I really love called It Follows.

I adore films, but there are simply so many excellent films that I can't really say what my favourites are. I'd constantly be changing my mind, even after posting.

Jim Jarmusch movies cause this is like looks my life. I am sure in e ery movie he have at least one dyapracix person. I forget name of my favourite movie made by him. But it's that one when Tom Waits with that Italian guy escape and it's total chaos exactly like at my brain. Yes and hitching guide to galaxy how is always something change and it seems funny with touch of deep philosphy.
