Which, in your opinion, is the best movie ever? THE movie?
For me, definitely and without a doubt, Lord of the Rings (the trilogy) being the best in here The Return of the King.
I would also nominate Van Helsing and The Hours.
What about you? Give me names.

Quoting Lumberton (Reply 10): "Lord of the Rings Return of the King" is a cinamatic masterpiece (all of them were IMO).
Couldn't disagree more. The effects were truly spectacular, but that's about all. Practically all the characters were two-dimensional, the exceptions of course being Smegel/Gollum, Sam Gamgee and the Ents. Did anyone care at all what happened to any of the others? I wanted to punch Frodo in the face with his stupid caught-in-the-headlamps stare. It's a great story, but cramming it into three three-hour films was crazy.
My vote would have to go to "Schindler's List".
: My favorite commedy, as stupid as it was: Wet Hot American Summer some good ones: Shawshank Redemption, Hotel Rwanda (disturbing but excellent IMO), T
