    Okay... as I am hopelessly optimistic, I am curious as to the BEST movies you have seen. And because I am also curious, let's make this fun and ask:

    Your favorite comedy?

    Your favorite action movie?

    Your favorite Sci-Fi? (Or horror?)

    Your favorite Drama?

    I have got:

    Comedy: This is my toughest category. I am going with "The Naked Gun" after erasing this selection about 10 times.

    Action: "Raiders of the Lost Ark" edges out the greatest Christmas movie ever "Die Hard".

    Sci-Fi- Greatest movies ever made owns this category going away- "The Empire Strikes Back".

    Drama: Would you believe a Hitchcock movie not many people have seen? It is called "Lifeboat", and I think it is the best of the Masters many great ones.

    Nothing wrong with modern movies. I like those you listed also.

    Comedy: "Anchorman 2" (I'm not that into comedy though)

    Action: "Batman Begins" (I find it even better than The Dark Knight), a more classic one would be "Raging Bull"

    SciFi: "Inception" (Is it SciFi?) If not, I will nominate "Gattaca"

    Drama / Thriller: That one's hard since it's my favorite genre. "The Prestige", "A Few Good Men", "Eyes Wide Shut", "Flight", "Basic Instinct", "Clockwork Orange"...pick one...

    I thought I was the only one in America that liked Batman Begins the best of the three. Owe you one, Mr. Tesla.

    Maybe you're. I'm not American ;-)

    BTW the reason I prefer the first one is because I love how they go into detail about his childhood and how his mind develops over time. Inarguably, "The Dark Knight" features more action, but for me, the story part matters significantly when assessing a movie.

    Ok here goes.
    1. Comedy - Monty Python's Life of Brian.

    2. Action - Aliens. Probably the best sequel ever made.

    3. Sci-Fi - Blade Runner. After so many years, nothing really compares. Ridley Scott created a masterpiece.

    4. Drama - Not really my cup of tea. So I'll pick Proof.

    It would have to be either Dark Knight Rises or Captain America The Winter Soldier.

    I haven't seen a lot of Sci-Fi but does The Matrix count?

    For favorite drama, would Shawshank Redemption count?

    I totally forgot about "Event Horizon". I really dug that flick!! Also, not sure how it took this long for a "Fight Club" reference.

    Maybe it is because no one talks about "Fight Club".... Rule #1 and #2.

    Oh, I am with you. A few years ago, my daughter and I had a long talk about our favorite movies, and we each tried to come up with our top 25 flicks. At first, we were all like "It is going to be hard to come up with 25."

    Then, a day or two later, each of our lists had ballooned to about 50-60 movies and counting and we basically gave up. We felt guilty cutting this movie, not picking that one, how to move that flick out of the top 10...

    Way too stressful.

    "The Matrix" seems to have shown up the most. Does that mean we can all forgive Keanu Reeves for "The Day the Earth Stood Still" remake, as well as "47 Ronan"? (Which I actually kinda liked.)

    The dude has an interesting filmography. Ever actually looked at all the great movies/dudes he has done? He is an "all or nothing" actor.

    4. Casino Royale. (I'd want to watch the Bond movies with Pierce Brosnan, but for the recent ones this is the most memorable for me.)

    3. The Italian Job (2003; I'd want to watch the first one, though.)

    2. Ted. Because "YOU THUNDER!!!"

    1. (500) Days of Summer. Not when I've watched it about 5 times already.
