    It's impossible to ask anyones FAVROTE all-time number one movie.

    Right now, I am on a serious Miyazaki kick, and I just watched Princess mononoke and Spirited away, they are both my favorites.

    But how can I exlude such fine cinema as a clockwork orange, or 2001: a space odyssey.

    and how could I possibly look away from "office space" which pretty was pretty much the life of my junior year in HS.

    Or how could I not mention "ghost dog" or the new Lord of the Rings movies

    and while all this is impossible as is, I could never go without mentioning the entire star war series, even episode 1.

    It is just impossible to single out movies like that.

    Maybe, favorite in a specific genre, or class of movies...but never could I just say that one movie is my favorite.

    I could make a list of my favorite movies that would probably exceed the character limits of this message board, I really like movies.

    Too many to list. I'm a movie freak, so asking for a favorite is just futile. Enough of a film buff that I'm looking to minor in film in college.
