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.
Regards,
Adam

"Lord of the Rings Return of the King" is a cinamatic masterpiece (all of them were IMO). I waited > 30 years to see this movie after I first read the book(s).

The best films that I have seen are ..... in order of appearance:

Citizen Kane (1941)
Casablanca (1942)
Sunset Boulevard (1950)
To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
The French Connection (1971)
The Godfather (1972)
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (1975)
Schindler's List (1993)
Fargo (1996)

However, tomorrow I might think otherwise!

Other than for horror films, I'm very omniverous.

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".
