Randy's avatar

I just watched The Machinist a few days ago. I was very impressed by it.

amazingme's avatar

@zannajune I love Donnie Darko! I saw the sequel a few days ago…and lets just say I think any can pass that up.

gypsywench's avatar

I can always watch the original Star Wars trilogy. Those will never get old. I don’t like the new Star Wars movies at all.
@zannajune Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind was amazing.

amazingme's avatar

@gypsywench I thought the new ones were OK. Have you seen Fanboys? It’s a movie about Star Wars fans who try to steal Episode I.

gypsywench's avatar

@amazingme No I haven’t but I really want to.
The fall is also one of my favorites.

DominicX's avatar

American Beauty (probably #1 on my list)
Donnie Darko
Memento
It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World
Christmas Vacation
The Judd Apatow movies and The Hangover

amazingme's avatar

@gypsywench I highly recommend it. Also, I love The Fall.
