Kamikaze - I just watched Manic and it made me cry so hard as I've dealt with some of the issues the characters in the movie have. It hit a little too close to home.

My faves:
Dirty Dancing
The Sound of Music
Requiem for a Dream
Dancer in the Dark
Office Space
Glory
Slumdog Millionaire

I'm really not a movie person, though.
And I do not want to be a rose.
I do not wish to be pale pink,
but flower scarlet, flower gold.
And have no thorns to distance me,

but be bright,
bright,
bright as yellow,
warm as yellow.

Almost Famous
Pleasantville
Brokeback Mountain
500 Days of Summer

I don't like it when people ask me because I can't make up my mind. I tend to like everything.

But, if I had to narrow it down:

Hook
Batman (1989)
Batman Begins
Happy Feet
Aladdin
The Little Mermaid
Lion King
Breakfast At Tiffany's
Sixteen Candles
Across The Universe
Elf


(I know it's such a random list!)

oh, I like Amelie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Ferris Bueller's Day off too! Almost Famous and (500) Days of Summer are honorable mentions.

See what I mean when I can't decide because I like them all?
