We have named a few of your favourite movies but what is your all time number one, the one film you love above all others. Why do you like it?

Mine has to be 'Goodfellas'

Brilliant acting, wonderful writing and direction, based on a true story so I love being able to research the real people it depicts and learn about them and their stories.
First movie I bought as a video, then a DVD and now a Blu-Ray, as they became available. The film always makes me want to cook fresh Italian food, a film you can taste as well as watch.

Pi... I'm not usually into arthouse films but the idea that the world runs on hidden yet decipherable codes is a brilliant premise for a low budget black and white flick.

Blu-Ray is basically a HD DVD, better quality than a DVD

All time Fav? Gutta be The Van by Roddy Doyle.

Starring Colme Meaney

Classic Irish comedy. Side splitter. Part of the Barrytown trilogy. The Snapper is just as funny!!

If you are talking about British films, then it would have to be either Goldfinger or Get Carter.

I couldn't pick an all time favourite movie but Goodfellas is definitely in my top ten. Jaws, The Shawshank Redemption and Back to the future would also be in there too. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

As of the moment, my favourites would be What Dreams May Come, and Bicentennial Man. But I also love Schindler's List and Akira Kurosawa's Madadayo.
