I'll add a few more to the favorites list:

A Few Good Men
The Shining
The Usual Suspects
The Last of the Mohicans
Fargo
The Big Lebowski
Caddyshack

This list reminds me, I need to do a Coen Brothers avatar week one of these days.

Why all the hate for District 9? I really liked this movie.
It was enjoyable.

My favorite: Star Wars. If you grew up in the 1970s (and were a geek), Star Wars is just part of your soul. It's part of who you are. I'll always be Luke Skywalker in my head. I'd bet that 50 percent of my dreams are Star Wars dreams. It was that big of a deal.

Least favorite: Doesn't "least favorite" still imply that it's a favorite? I dunno. "Super" was pretty bad. There are lots of bad movies.

I didn't totally dislike District 9, that's why it's listed here. It's just not a big favorite. Apparently they're making a sequel called District 10. If it's anywhere near as WTF as 9 was, it should be at least as good. Avatar was alright despite being preachy and a little racist. Due date had it's moments, but I'm not into Zach Galafakanis to begin with.

The title is "Your Favorite Best & Worst Movies", which I interpret as "favorite good" and "favorite bad" movie.

Citizen Kane has been my favorite good movie since I first saw it. Everything about it enthralls and moves me. I've seen it at least 100 times. I can quote the whole thing, top to bottom, with music cues.

Road House is my current favorite bad movie. It's over the top dreck, featuring an entirely predictable plot populated with stock characters and hack dialog that tries to shoe-horn some sort of zen bouncer wisdom between the fight scenes. It's embarrassingly earnest, and therein lies its charm. You get the impression that a lot of people enthusiastically polished this turd with their nostrils wide open. Someone actually thought Dalton should say "Pain don't hurt" with a straight face.
