    Well it might not be the "best" movie ever made, but my favourite of all time is The good, the bad and the ugly.

    Well well well Wildcat, amazing some damn Seppo and a freakin Vicky would actually consider the same movie as our favorite...

    As far as Best Movie, it would probably be something Classic... Old School...

    I like Band of Brothers, although it is probably not considered a movie. Gladiator is one I like a lot, although many consider The Godfather or Citizen Kane to be the best movie ever made.

    There are a few classics that have everything a fine movie should have:

    - The Seven Maginificent Men
    - La Dolce Vita
    - Easy Rider

    but I'd define it rather as "What director you like". Then it would be definitely

    - Steven Spielberg
    - Woody Allen
    - Ingmar Bergmann
    - Federico Felinni
    - MiloŇ° Forman

    Best film ever...thats a hard question to answer as different genres have different appeal...

    Id probably say perhaps The Great Escape, its certainly my favourite film, But then again I like Donnie Darko just as much...and they're both completely different.

    THE best movie ever made_-easy-- DECISION BEFORE DAWN w/

    Richard Basehart as Lt. Rennick.
    Gary Merrill as Col. Devlin.
    Hans-Christin Blech as "Tiger"
    Oskar Werner as Luftwaffe Medic/Cpl. Karl Maurer (aka) "Happy"
    O.E. Hasse as German Panzer Oberst.
    Hildegard Knef as Hilde.
    Wilfried Seyferth as Scholz the SS Man.
    Klaus Kinski as the whining soldier.
    Til Kiwi as a German Soldier.


    This movie was filmed shortly after the end of WWII and everything you see : Vehicles, uniforms, Weapons, Badges and destroyed cities--were the real deal. All of the German Soldier extras in the movie, were Wehrmacht veterans. Same for the Allies.

    Anyway, this movie will be released on DvD in late May 2006. :))
