I'll add the worst movie I've ever seen:
1941 (John Belushi, Dan Akroyd). Just horrible.

I cringe at the thought of this movie. The story made no sense and it was boring frankly. Book was 100 times better.

But hey, that's just me. :)

Hmm... I don't watch a lot of movies (maybe 40 in my entire life?) but the ones that do stand out a LOT:

The whole SAW series. Loved all of them, DEFINITELY the last one.

And of course my favorite movie of ALL time, Waking Life by Richard Linklater. AMAZING.

I wouldn't have a top 10. I prefer my "favourite" movies to be deeper opposed to shallow action movies with no purpose.

In no particular order...

1. American History X
2. Fight Club
3. Dead Poet's Society
4. V for Vendetta
5. Ray

Notable Mentions (Up there but I wouldn't throw them in my top 5):

- The Pursuit of Happyness
- Rocky I
- Catch Me if You Can
- Braveheart

That's probably interchangeable with one or two on my list. Or maybe just a close runner-up.

I can't say which order but

Pulp Fiction
Animal House
I Love You Man
Pineapple Express
Terminator 2
Jackass Series :lol:
American Pie Series :lol:
Superbad
Saving Private Ryan
Forest Gump

Most of the time for me my favorite movies are just the ones that make me happy or are a great time for my friends and I, I really appreciate "good" movies but not more than once most of the time and that to me is what really defines a great movie, something you can watch again and again and still have a great time and love it.

Really? I thought it kept the story going VERY well and provided a great, unexpected full circle close to the series.

I thought it provided the exact opposite. A terrible sucessor to SAW VI, the inclusion of Carry Elwes was extremely disappointing, the traps were not deep, the story was poor (correction, the plot was poor, the story was decent.) But overall, after the depth of IV, V, and VI, this just didn't even come close. I don't think it even closed the series at all, and I'm really hoping for another one to redeem itself.

Adding Carry again I thought was a GREAT choice. I did NOT see that coming at all. The plot? Nah, wasn't very deep, but it got the job done. It was enough to distract me to where I had NO idea the ending was coming while still being fairly entertaining.

I think at that point of the movie, Hoffman was more concerned with getting rid of Jill anyway, so his other traps at the time would have probably suffered and not been as good as normal anyway. I think it really fit well.
