it really depends of the genre.. but from historical movies - gladiator, brave heart and king Arthur..

i like a "Rounders" a lot too..
But of course, here is my list of favourite ones: "Scarface", "Once upon a time in America", "Usual suspects", "Godfather all parts", "Blow", "Good Fellas", "John Q" and "Man on fire" (Densel Washingthon is my favourite actor and he doesn't have bad movie!)

I think Anthony Hopkins is an excellent actor, so I would say "Meet Joe Black" would be a one of my favorites.

Okay, so these are just movies in general, not poker movies, I guess. In that case, This is Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride, The Road Warrior, and Contact are all near the top of my list.

My Favorite Movie is The Matrix... Im a big Keanu Reeves Fan, had a crush on him since my twenties. Twenty years later he is still my movie star crush.

I loved Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon subtitles and all. Good Will Hunting with Matt Damon as well as Rounders, The Godfather I and Goodfellas (Im Italian).

Anything with Deniro, Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman or Al Pacino or Gene Hackman or CLint Eastwood. Im Old School!!

I agree with most of the movies listed above. Since the fifth anniversary of 9-11 is next Monday, I checked out United 93 recently. It was quite a good movie and very interesting to see approximately what happened on the flight that morning before the terrorists brought the plane down. The passengers actions were very inspiring.

It was just one events in one's live where most people remember where they were that entire day. I was in a downtown Houston highrise and we were all sent home at lunch time. Then I just watched TV with the wifey for the rest of the day. Just unbelievable and eerie.

All of the planes in the air were told to land and many planes were sent to Canada. Kudos to the Canucks for their hospitality.

I wouldn't mind watching that movie. Even though it was a horrible happening for our generation and all generations but it is definitely history and will always be remembered. I think many people are just curious of exactly how everything took place. Since it was a true story that scarred our nation it will definitely attract many people to watch the movie. There probably will also be many that do not want to watch this movie because it hits close to home but you really can't escape reality and its real stuff.
