    Simple question, but I want to know anyway.

    My favorite is King Kong... the REAL version, not the 78 version (*puke*), and not the new version (though it was well done, it doesn't have the same feel).

    So what is your favorite?

    I have many movies I like, but currently it is clearly

    Tian bian yi duo yun (aka The Wayward Cloud)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0445760/

    Really a piece of art and not at all mainstream, hardly any dialogue. In parts funny, in parts disturbing, and beautifully photographed.

    And certainly not for the faint-hearted moralists out there.
    So you have been warned.
    (Edit: just found a phrase which describes it pretty well: not for the bubble gum audience)



    Oh two other examples from my favourites list are Hana-Bi and Fargo and Shaun of the Dead (British comedy).

    AAAH!!! YOU ROCK!!! So many people don't know about this movie. I went to a haloween pub crawl as Ash one year, and not a single person recognized me out of hundreds of COLLEGE STUDENTS! I had the bloodstained blue shirt, the chainsaw arm, even the curl on the forehead and scars. But no one noticed... :(

    "Well HELLOO Mr. Fancy Pants! I got news for you pal, you ain't leading but two things: Jack and Sh*t. And Jack just left town..."

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off

    Anyone know why? Anyone? Anyone?

    Here's why....
    In 11th grade, friends with 2 neighborhood guys in 12th grade, we had a friend who worked in the attendance office. How the attendance went in school, if you came to school late, a notice was sent to your teachers to let them know you should be in class after x time. Attendance office had you now recorded as being in school. If completely absent, home was called.

    So, we would skip morning classes all the time and go to school late. The problem with that was, we would always end up watching Ferris Bueller before leaving to walk to school late. Thus, we would never make it to class.

    The good part was our friend in the attendance office. We would show up late at the office, she would record us as being in school. But she would not send out the notices to the teachers so they thought we were absent, thus not sending out a notice to the attendance office that we didn't show up.

    Walking to school one day after watching Ferris Bueller of course, we had full intentions of going in late and staying. We were walking through a neighborhood and came upon a group of senior citizens walking the neighborhood. They stopped to chat commenting that "shouldn't you guys be in school?" We told them we were just going in late because it was so nice out. But, we weren't exactly positive we would make it there.

    Several hours later we are at the mall. From behind we hear someone calling, "Boys! Hey boys!" We turn around to see the same group from earlier in the morning. "I guess you guys didn't make it back to school, huh?" and they had a good chuckle over it.

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off caused many of absences at school :D
