My all time favs:

Pi - math, chaos theory, and the most accurate portrayal of migraines I have ever found on film.
My Neighbor Totoro - Sweet, funny, and honest. Plus it's animated. woot.
The Prestige - new last year. But DAVID BOWIE AS NIKOLA TESLA. *quiver*
Dead Poet's Society - sad, beautiful, and again with the honest. I had teachers like this. I knew students like this too.
Natural Born Killers - most couples have "our song", we have "our movie" and this is it.
The Pillowbook - the movie is mainly about drawing japanese characters on people. OF COURSE I WORSHIP IT.
Freida - Selma Hayak as Freida Kahlo (ugh, can't spell it today)
The Killer - Chow Yun Fat + John Woo. my favorite film from either of them. The scene in the chair with the cigarette where emotions play across his face and HE NEVER FUCKING MOVES!!!!

and yes, there are several more.

Guilty Pleasures:

Heavy Metal - I have seen this film over 500 times. I can quote it without trying. I used to have the entire thing memorized.
Vampire Hunter D - and yes, this is what Spydrman looked like when we started dating...
Fifth Element - "negative, I am a meat popcicle" I really hope I don't have to explain it to you.
Dogma - *koff* waaaaaaaaay too much religious studies. And Selma Hayak doing the booty dance...
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead - I love the movie, and it brings me happy memories involving my cousin.
Charlie's Angels - both of them... Crispin Glover, Drew Barrymoore, and Lucy Liu... yeah, that all does it for me.
Time Bandits - "MUM! DAD! DON'T TOUCH IT!! IT'S EVIL!!"

I have a couple of genre's of guilty pleasures too:

Brad Pitt films. I love to watch him act. He is easy on the eyes, but he is also REALLY FUCKING TALENTED.
Johnny Depp films. His entire career is one unusual and odd film after another. All of it is weirdo stuff. YAY WEIRDO STUFF!!
Vincent Price films. Ah, the good acting, the bad acting, the cheese, the creepy. I love VP.
Guy Ritchie films. Do you really need an explaination?
John Woo films. GUNSGUNSGUNSGUNSGUNS all in this amazingly perfect choreography.
Chow Yun Fat films. FUCKING GENIUS ACTOR. OH MY GOD.

Honorable Mention:

Payback
Boys on the Side
Seven Samurai
Waiting for God

Goes Without Saying:

Labrynth, Legend, Ferngully, Adams Family (1 and 2), Sleepy Hollow, Valmont, Orlando, Nadia, and several others that are so obvious that I can't even think of them.



Um... don't act all shocked or anything. I am very upfront and vocal about being a media junkie. This includes movies.
