I still haven't seen Clerks. I need to borrow it from my friend he has all sorts of Jay and Silent Bob stuff because he's related to Silent Bob.

Possibly two of my favorite movies of all time: Schindler's List and Requiem for a Dream

Horror/Suspense/Thriller: 6th Sense, Memento, Seven (although it was a little too predictable), The Ring

Comedies: Wayne's World (both of them), Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Napoleon Dynamite (yes, I know.....), Dumb and Dumber, Tommy Boy, Black Sheep, School of Rock, The Incredibles, Snatch, Toy Story 2, I also enjoy Mel Brooks films...

Drama: Magnolia, the Royal Tenenbaums (is that a drama?), JFK (which I suppose is more historical-type), Fight Club, Being John Malkovich, Blow, and does Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind fit in here?

Historical: JFK (which I already listed), Hotel Rwanda, Sylvia (I guess that's historical)

Documentaries: I really like Michael Moore ones.. I think he's good at what he does; March of the Penguins, Winged Migration, The War Room, Outfoxed,

Foreign: Amelie, Triplets of Belleville

and wherever the hell I heart huckabees and edward scissorhands fits..

and tons more that I forgot. Damn, there's so many good ones...

and I'm with cnredd - I hate Adam Sandler! Except for his performance in Punch Drunk Love.

Dancer In The Dark

Village of the Damned (British original, not the awful Hollywood re-make).

Beautiful Thing

Anita and Me

Le Père Noël Est Un Ordure (classic French comedy, which roughly translated means "Father Christmas Is A B*stard")
