My Favorite Movies
This is easy.
Probably my favorite movie of all time is Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.
My second favorite movie is Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
Despite a few bits of clunky writing (usually when the writers strayed from Tolkien), these moves are damn near perfect. And the extended editions are even better. I can watch them over and over (and often do, along with Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers).
Other favorite movies (in no particular order): Aliens, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, The Seven Year Itch, and Ghostbusters (the original).
The Seven Year Itch I enjoy because the protagonist's brain works just like mine. Plus it's a very funny movie. Another older movie I enjoy is Some Like it Hot. It's hilarious.
Aliens is the perfect military scifi movie with a few horror tropes added (even though I don't like horror, I can take it in small doses).
The Empire Strikes Back is, in my opinion the best of the Star Wars movies. The battle on Hoth is amazing, especially for pre-CGI special effects. It is a very intense movie.
And Ghostbusters is an amazing comedy. Why anyone thought to remake it, I don't know.
