    Following on from FB's Worst one. I've done a best one.

    So what was the best film you've ever seen?

    For me it has to be Die Hard. I know many of you will think thats not the best ever film. But i have loved it and have watched it over and over again for aslong as i can remember. It was probably one of the first action films to produce special effects (could be wrong), but their made it a very good film.

    I think my favourites would be Forrest Gump, Die Hard, Borat, the Hangover, etc...
    but I'd have to say Saving Private Ryan.

    Don't really have standout film :dunno:

    A film I can watch over and over again, is probably the first Rush Hour, the other two are disappointing, but this one is hilarious with a good story :)

    There's also 2 Fast 2 Furious, I know it isn't the best, but when I was young, I could watch it everyday, it had so many good cars! Like that Silver/Blue Nissan Skyline (I still have that poster of it in my room!!!), the Mitsibushi Evo (one of the best ones, with a great design!), those two muscle cars, the blue one my favourite. The race at the start was great!

    I know this one will be kiddish, but there's also the first ever Ice Age and The Lion King LOL

    Those films aren't necessarily the best I have ever seen, but they are ones I can keep watching and never get sick off.

    If I was pushed for best film I ever saw, it would probably be "Batman Begins", liked Batman when I was younger (wasn't crazy about it like those comic dudes though!), and it was more serious than your average Batman films, plus the bad guy wasn't the usual one such as Joker and all.

    People say the Dark Knight is one of the greatest films, quite frankly I can't really remember it, only watched it in the cinemas.

    For fun you should always include the ultimate spaghetti - They call me Trinity

    But full respect to mr. Leone who defined the sound of a pistol in the same way mr Lucas defined the sound of a space ship!

    So many contenders for this title, not sure I could pick just one...

    Matrix (the original), saw it by accident at the cinema, didn't expect much but they created a world which totally ensnared the viewer from the moment you saw it.
    LotR (Fellowship), waited for years for this film to be done properly, had read the books over and over as a kid and was a bit worried they would do the usual hollywood job on it, but sat and watched the whole thing mesmerised as scene after scene came up looking exactly how I had sen it in my head as a kid.
    Green Mile, still not really sure what genre the film fits into, but could sit and watch it again and again as the whole story just comes across beautifully in the film.
    Pitch Black, can't believe nobody has mentioned this yet! Low budget sci-fi/horror film, spawned a whole series of films, cartoons, games and everything else as a non-perfect future was played out. Managed to buy a copy the other week and educated the other half with it, she now can't wait for the next film to be made.
    Aliens, what can you say? Perfect for the genre.
    Predator, so cheesey, so badly dialogued and acted, but what a film :D

    I could go on for days about films, mainly as I love a good (or even a really bad) film and appreciate the efforts the actors and crew go to to make their story the one you want to watch...
