Fantastic Mr Fox.

It was quite loosely based on one of my favorite children's stories, but I (would normally nitpick) loved every second of it. It was very much in the spirit of wild crazy fighting against authority that makes kids and me love his books.

My favorite part was where he gives the wolf the black-power salute.

...apparenly we can't go with it or something.

Speaking of dragon movies, Sintel is amazing. Do NOT read the comments until you've watched the video, though. Spoilers abound.
It's spelled "definitely", not "definately". "Defiantly" is a different word entirely.

Beowulf, at least when I watch it... under the influence (be it alcohol or a good deal of nicotine. Got a habit for bad habits through military :P ). Even better with a bunch of people of the uglier sex. Long live testosterone. :D

Oh yeah, and I got out of the army, so I'z back on the forums now.

Lord of the Rings or The Matrix, can't decide. The Matrix had some scenes that didn't appeal to me that much or were too repetitive, but I love the general idea; Lord of the Rings was a great film, but I still prefer the books.
Inception was good, but had numerous flaws so I won't count it as a favourite.

What flaws? Are your sure they were flaws in the movie, as opposed to your understanding (no offense)?

I agree with Maiklas. Inception is one of the few movies I consider flawless, though I was a bit confused about the ending. (See below, spoiler warning) But I certainly don't think that was due to any flaw in the movie.

While I would like to be able to say that inception was flawless, but that simply isn't the case. It was still a great move though...

All the "flaws" listed in that blog were also answered in the blog.

Look, either the director is the worst since Ed Wood or...

This makes Cybermouse's noted discrepancy irrelevant. So are those in the blog. Any objection you could possibly raise is null and void.

That's because you were dreaming, and still are.

Yeah, my favorite movie atm is probably Inception. I also love LotR, Star Wars and the Matrix.
