    I personally like Boondock Saints, as well as Dumb and Dumber. Those are probably my 2 most favorite.

    I see some good movies floating around in here, so I might as well add my ten favorites:

    1)Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back

    2)Star Wars VI: Return Of The Jedi

    3)Star Wars II: Attack Of The Clones

    4)Star Wars IV: A New Hope

    5)Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace

    6)CKY3

    7)CKY1

    8)CKY2K

    9)CKY4

    10)Freddy Got Fingered

    As you can see, I am quite the Star Wars fan, although I do not take it to the extreme like Phant, but I will admit to knowing pretty much all of the lines in each SW movie. Aside from Star Wars now, CKY, that's right, Camp Kill Yourself - The guys who started *******. If you haven't heard their music or movies (1,2,3,4), I recommend you do so as fast as you can as I predict you will be laughing and possibly even crying on the floor at some of the stunts/practical jokes that they pull. For example, taking a sh1t whilst running at full speed, or assaulting the McDonalds drive through workers (there are many more and much funnier things they do which I would prefer not to mention on TS). And Finally, Freddy Got Fingered, starring Tom Green - The king on Canadian comedy, this man will have you wetting yourself as he sucks the milk right out of the cow’s tit. You can imagine that, and much more in probably the most disgusting comedy ever released.

    Hmm, I'll let you into a secret...

    Actually, although I was not lying about my fav movies, and I do really like Darth Vader, a lot of the Star Wars / Darth Vader stuff is just a gimmic I use for my internet persona.

    CKY 1-4 have to be among some of the funniest skits I've ever seen. ******* cant hold a candle to those movies. Being from Pennsylvania myself, everybody who lives there acts that destructive and crazy. Believe me, there is something in the water there or maybe a lack of things to do!

    Favourite movie, can't particularly list them in any Top 10, though The Matrix & Reloaded are my current favourites. I know a good load didn't like Reloaded though people'll probably come round to that in time (In much the same way they did to the Matrix). Anyway, there's forums out there http://forums.matrixfans.net/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=4 that can better explain the genius of those films.
    Beyond those though I'd say Fellowship of the Ring Extended Edition as well (Two Towers I'm a bit mixed on at the moment given what happens with Faramir & Treebeard, though the Extended Edition may change that).

    yeh thomas the extended edition of fellowship was awesome, I caught it on Starz and was really impressed. Why didn't they toss that in the original movie? would it have just been too long?
