So I'm not gonna do some fancy-schmancy RM-type polling thingy, but post your favorite movies of all time, and why.

I'll start.
There are a whole bunch, but if I had to narrow it down to like 20 (originally 10, but there were still too many) , I'd say

1. Kramer vs Kramer
2. The Shawshank Redemption
3. The Silence of the Lambs
4. Raging Bull (New addition)
5. Gone With the Wind
6. Forrest Gump
7. Taxi Driver
8. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
9. Twelve Angry Men
10. The Graduate
11. Amadeus
12. Casablanca
13. Network
14. A Beautiful Mind
15. Philadelphia
16. The color purple.
17. The Lion King
18. Quo Vadis
19. A Streetcar Named Desire
20. Rainman.
21. Ben Hur
22. Doubt

Also, discuss various actors and their acting abilities. I guess you can discuss actresses too. For example, Dustin Hoffman is one of the greatest actors of all time and if you disagree you are wrong.

Greatest, or favorite? There's a difference. I can recognize greatness in a film without particularly enjoying it.

"Slowly, I began to see--as if a veil had lifted--the tortured shadow of Cain everywhere, within me and without, his many cultural reincarnations parading through my mind like frames projected on a cyclorama. He was the first city-builder. Perhaps the father of science and philosophy. His war was with God, the Father who spurned him. Of the two--him and Abel--only Cain possessed subjectivity. A complex inner life. It was said that Western man himself was Cain, cursed with the burden of restlessness and the endless quest for selfhood."

I refuse to vote, due to the lack of Cohen brothers movies on the list.

It is every decathlete's job to take this as a guarantee.

Post your own list. That's the point.

much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

and when to reap, we should soon want bread.

It places the governors indeed more at their ease, at the expense of the people"

Look at all his posts. They are pretty much the worst movies.

ITT: Sarcasm? What is that?
