Introducing Google+'s Movie Magic Club

This network has been used in so many innovative ways. It's so great to be a part of its evolution. A few weeks back I started with my Interest Based circles. The idea was to achieve more target based sharing and introduce a way of filtering content on google+.

Today, I am very excited to announce my Movie Magic Club for Google+. Through the club I hope we all get the chance to see as many movies as possible, together on Google+.

What is the Movie Magic Club?
A few weeks back +Valentina Zamfirescu suggested starting a movie club with my Movie Maniacs circle, just like a book-reading club. I loved the idea and started working on it with Valentina, +Mitch Hayes and +Brendan James. We tested it out this weekend over a hangout and we think it's now ready to be opened to the world.

The basic idea behind the club is that all members will watch a movie each week and then discuss it together. Using google+ to implement this idea makes the club so much more dynamic and opens up many possibilities that I have yet to imagine.

How will it work?
Every week I will be posting three movie suggestions in a poll to the MMC circle members. The movie with the most +1s will be announced as the Movie of the Week. We'll have a week to watch it and then have a live hangout via Google+ on Friday to discuss the MotW. The hangout will be streamed live publicly; however, the hangout itself will only be open to members of the MMC.

The MotW and the poll for the following week will be announced during the live hangout.

How can you join?
Starting today you can request to be added to the MMC by leaving the name of your favorite movie in the comment thread below. Yes, it's that simple :) You will know you are part of the MMC circle when you begin seeing posts from me with the [MMC] header.

When will the first poll be announced?
The first poll will go live this Friday on 26th August. The poll will be announced here on the g+ stream and also posted to the About section of my profile. Please, remember you will only be able to access the poll if you're a member of the MMC circle so do remember to join.

I am looking forward to your responses and really really excited to get this going. Not sure what this will lead to but the possibilities are incredible! It's a little overwhelming thinking about the scale but together we can shape it so that MMC becomes truly global.

Fallen, starring Denzel Washington, John Goodman, and Elias Koteas. 
House of Yes

(Also, this is awesome. I won't be able to participate right away, but I totally love this idea.)
movies i love them...
i need to know how old can be the movie? to suggest a name...
So hard to choose, Paul is at the top, maybe Hot Fuzz.
I was just thinking of starting a book club here .. love this idea too. The Matrix
Bao Ly
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - trilogy.
So many favorites, but to begin with...Amelie.~
Back to the Future (and 12 Monkeys... and Contact... and anything else spacetime-travel related :)

cc: +Glenn Rogers who may also be interested in this.
+Suracheth Chawla I totally love that movie. Usually I don't go for too much action but I love that one because of its epic soundtrack from Hans Zimmer.
Freaking really loved

+Steve Davis yup saw it three times so far. twice in the theater and once at home.

The second time, the first 20 minutes made a whole lot more sense :P
+Henrik Brameus I am actually surprised it took so long for someone to mention that one. It's definitely up there at the top of my list too.
The Dead Poets Society is another top favourite.
that is so good to know that movie can be from any decade.i am overwhelmed.this makes it even more difficult to choose...:)
i am in for any movie.
STAR WARS. And as a suggestion, when you start posting to your Movie of the Week circle, hit the "notify members" check box, so we get a notification, please.
Soooo many! Once Were Warriors, Sean of the Dead, The Apartment, Let the Right One In, (Do documentaries count?)
For those that use the Xbox 360 and Netflix, it will also be possible to watch some movies simultaneously.
+Idrialis Castillo Loved Big Fish! Soooo many! Once Were Warriors, Sean of the Dead, The Apartment, Let the Right One In, (Do documentaries count?)
Can't pick just one film! Brazil, Manhattan, Drowning by Numbers, Bladerunner
+Steve Davis Steve Martin is awesome for continuing to make Pink Panther movies, they could make them next ones a bit less commercial and more joke and rythme focused but either way I am happy and it's good of them to make them so popular it forces the system to let them make more.
Raiders of the Lost Ark
+Nicolas Charbonnier I think if anyone could do it, it's Martin, but he just doesn't have the same magic that the David Niven had for the role.
I love a lot of movies.... Mystic River, 21 grams, La vita e bella, changeling.. .. Lots
How about watching documentaries on Neflix like "Obama's deal" or "Waiting For Superman", one of my favorites - be fun to watch a movie and comment live online.
hmm, gun to my head... crap, how about AMADEUS!
Army of Darkness (there will be Chin)
i hope there is no cap in suggesting the names or there is?
I wouldn't say favorite but right now I have been watching Back to the Future over and over again. So I'll go with that. Back to the Future.
i like the classics, but it would be great to be introduced to newer classics. i'll go with . . ."once" for a new classic, and "thin man" as an older classic that i revisit, time and again
I want to list so many more than one, but when I have to pick, it's always The Nightmare Before Christmas. I can't promise I'll always have the energy or time to watch, but I'd like to participate when the aforementioned factors allow.
The Departed or
The Big Lebowski

Very near a tie for these two films.
+pat bay that's pretty much the only Anime movie I've seen and I totally loved it. +10 for bringing it up :)

+Namit Agarwal not really. Basically I just wanted to see what everyone's favourite movies ever. They can be from any film industry. It doesn't have to be hollywood. It's just a more fun and informative way of joining the club
By the way-- fantastic idea Ahmed. Looking forward to more creative use-cases for G+
SOOOO many good films here!! I forgot about Howl's Castle, and so many others!
+Ahmed Zeeshan clearly you need to see more anime. I was not impressed with Howl's... and I'm a fan of Miyazaki films.
Another good use for this feature would be the weekly live guitar lesson I currently take - but the Ustream channel only broadcasts the teacher, he cannot see the students.
omg this goes on getting better and better.
Many, one of them is Lord of the Rings - Trilogy...
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Most recent awesome movie i've seen: 13 Assassins, hands down.
+Steve Davis you are probably talking about Peter Sellers, the best actor to have ever been on this planet. Steve Martin's Pink Panthers are a homage to him
I can't choose between Gosford Park and Superbad.
i am a die hard hollywood fan but one bollywood movie i have seen more than 10 times and can see it again and again.i have to mention it...
"Andaz apna apna"
+pat bay Now that you've mentioned it, Spirited Away would be an awesome addition. As would Danny Boyle's live-action film, "Sunshine."
Nothing to Lose. (Martin Lawrence, Tim Robbins)
Spirited Away, Bend it Like Beckham, Road to Perdition, Pan's labyrinth, rocky horror picture show, Clash of the Titans....sooo many I forgot about. Thanks guys!
My favorites: Die Hard 4
Inglorious bastards
Billy Elliot (or maybe Valentin)
"Memento" by Christopher Nolan.
I love his film include Inception, The Dark Knight and Insomnia .
Everyone seems to already have voted for Shawshank, which is up there. However, it would have to be Lawrence of Arabia!
Fight Club - don't judge me! ;)

(I am not my favorite movie)
+Szabolcs Feczak very interesting list there. Thanks for sharing it. I'll pick up some movies from your list for the MMC :)
-Shaun of the Dead
-Singin' in the Rain
-Fight Club
-No Country for Old Men
I know +Ahmed Zeeshan will love this: Jodhaa Akbar, From India, period piece. About a Hindu Princess forced to Marry a Mughal Emperor (Muslim) amidst a brewing war and the treachery of everyone around them. Great Cinematography, costumes, love, death, action and starring Aishwarya Rai & Hritik Roshan, two of the better actors in Bollywood.
+Darrel Sukhdeo I have the soundtrack for that movie. Loved the sword-fighting scene between Hritik & Aish.
I love many but recent favorites are IP Man and IP Man 2.... Love martual arts!!! 
Steve K
Shutter Island
I think this is just a scam message :).
+Darrel Sukhdeo I do love that movie. I don't want people +1ing other posts. It's hard for me to tell if they want to join or not :)

+Amyr Haq does that mean you wanna join the club too? :)
My absolute favourites are
- 'El Hijo de La novia' (The son of the bride) by Argentinean director Juan Jose Campanella. Simple plot but incredibly touching.

- Scent of a Woman - need I say more? :)
Ok here's a couple that I have enjoyed.
Two of the Blade movies
Matrix series
What dreams may come
Love of the game
Oh brother where art thou?
Add me: Favorite Movies: Trainspotting and Taxi Driver. :)
the game, spy game, god father 2
i'm game.. recently watched source code and was quite impressed with it, and law abiding citizen was definitely a good one.. all time favourite is saving private ryan..
A favourite movie is too hard, but i guess i'd say
-The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
Because im jazzed about watching Leone's Dollar Trilogy ( in a row) on a movie screen on friday.

Also +Ahmed Zeeshan when talking about anime, my suggestions would be Princess Mononoke (best Ghibli imho), Metropolis and Cowboy Bebop - The Movie might not be the best example but the series is just Awesome.
shawshank redemption and pulp fiction. the godfather is really good as well. AND MONTHY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, brilliant movie! :D
Pulp Fiction

(but watching No Country for Old Men right now)
The Shawshank Redemption
The Die Hard Series...
Alma H
The Bucket List!
+Matti Wahlroos thanks for the anime suggestions. Will look into them :)

+Shubhankar Jyotirmaya Thanks for mentioning the Lion King. Didn't see it on the thread so far. For me that is without a doubt the most moving animated movie of all time. It's the first movie I watched in a cinema. I was in London at the time when it premiered in 94. I was 7 then. That godly soundtrack will never leave my head!
There are so many great movies out there, but I kinda love "The big Lebowski" :-) 
Life Is Beautiful (1997) La vita è bella
Ob Mon
The Man Who Would Be King, 1975. Directed by John Huston, Starring Michael Caine and Sean Connery. Based on a short story by Rudyard Kipling.
Bagdad Cafe (1987) is one of my favs.
La Vita è bella (Life is beautiful) - Roberto Benigni

based during WWII
If I well understood the goal is to discuss about the movie so I propose Contact or 2001: Space Odyssey.
+Nicolas Charbonnier Oh, haven't seen that one yet! Thanks for the suggestion.
And yes The life and death of peter sellers is more serious than funny, but i still found it to be entertaining and worth watching especially for, as i mentioned before, the acting by Geoffrey Rush.
From Sellers stuff i enjoy most Dr Strangelove and Being There
My favorite movie is a tie between Stranger than Fiction, the one with Will Ferrell, and Disney's UP.
+Claude Martin Brito we'll watch a movie every week and then discuss it at the end of each week on Friday. The suggestions being left here in the comments are just for joining the club. Anyone who wants to join should respond with their favourite movie so I can tell what sort of movies you all like.
Pulp Fiction, Memento... those kind of movies..
this sounds like a really good idea., my favorite movie is Ghost Dog, by Jim Jarmush. I would really like to join, but it will be some very busy week before I can do that. is it possible that way?
certainly +Thomas Begon. You don't have to watch each and every movie from the club. Just join in whenever you can :)
I wish I could hangout on my phone; don't have a webcam :(

Favourite films are the ones that make you think; Inception, The Matrix etc.
You don't need to have a webcam to hangout +Damon Meredith. It'd be great to have you there regardless :) If the hangouts get crowded, there will always be the live stream to follow along on.
Too many movie favorites.. I just can't name one.. but add me in the Movie Magic Club! <3
Glenn S
Breaker Morant. I've seen it about 8 times over the years and never really tire of it. Quotes from the movie come to mind often.
Wow! Some brilliant responses Ahmed. Great to see some love for The Last Starfighter, there's something just so distinctive about 80's films that is so 'of' the 80's - yet they seem to speak to people of all decades. Also glad to see Shaun of the Dead and Dead Poets Society up there. For me - I have to go obvious and plump for The Shawshank Redemption, Also would like to give props to The Deer Hunter as it's the first film that really made me change my thinking (surprised it's not got more mentions). In the modern era Fight Club really gets me fired up - in a good way. And if we're coming right up to date then I think Catfish is an absolute must see for any one even remotely interested in the internet (that means all of us, lol). :)
Wow, great idea, count me in. It's not easy to pick a single favorite movie, but that's just stating the obvious. The movie I have seen most times is Return of the Jedi, but my favorite movie is probably The Empire Strikes Back.
In the Mood for Love
Sunshine, Indy Jones, Cool Hand Luke, The Burbs, Black Swan, Mosquito Coast, The Quiet Earth etc
+Ahmed Zeeshan, my favorite movie is "Frequently asked questions about Time Travelling" and I would love to join this project! :3
Add me.
This post is turning out to be a great source of finding good movies.

My recommendation - The World's Fastest Indian. I somehow just love this movie and Anthony Hopkins is just brilliant in this one.
Now the next thing that needs to happen is that the "Movie of the Week" should be available on Youtube Movies on a sale price for the entire week. Simple Integration of Google Products ;).
I'll have to go with "The Matrix" and actually all of the trilogy as well as Animatrix
This would be so much cooler if we could create a circle and then let people choose to join it on their own.
+Alicia Kirk's choice (Gattaca) reminded me just how difficult it is to make a list like this. I think I've actually got more of a fluid top 5 w/ Chungking Express, The Fountain, Gattaca, and Drive, in addition to the aforementioned Blade Runner.

I really hope that this experiment catches on.
Add me. My all time favorite: The Good, Bad and Ugly. I also loved the Merchant of Venice.
Hard to narrow it down to one... some definite contenders would be The Green Mile, LOTR, Pay It Forward, the Harry Potter films. If forced to choose a favorite, however, I think I would have to say The Patriot.
The Fifth Element, Kill Bill, No Country for Old Men, Days of Heaven
I already have seen my favorite movies, and I still watch them sometimes, with blue-ray disc and hi quality sound, no interruptions, and nobody to talk over and tell me what he thinks of what we watch right now!

Now, if the objective or your post is to make a movies database, it was still existing on the web before G+.

This stream is like a tourists bus, and you are the nice guide.

The point is not passion for cinema, but passion to make G+ counters going up. You won't fool me!
Requiem for a Dream (killer film, killer soundtrack)
Aliens (1986), Inception, Star Trek (2009), LOTR trilogy, Star Wars, Harry Potter (1-8), etc...
Shawshank Redemption. -Please add me.
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn, and The Matrix
Can't pick just one:
Highlander (the first one)
Shawshank Redemption
Matrix (all)
Jungle Book
The Air I breathe
Gross Pointe Blank
I Love You Man
Sound of Music
Harvey (Pretty much any Jimmy Stewart)

I have to force myself to stop...

Jaws, Primer, and Transformers the movie the animated one of course.
Favorite movie I've seen this year - Tambien la Lluvia (Even the Rain).
Wings of Desire, 2001: A Space Odyssey
I like this idea, but hate to pick just one movie. Ok - Blazing Saddles
I love the Princess Bride as my favorite
I hate picking favorites...maybe Raising Arizona
I tend to favor classic films, though I do watch recent films, as well.

It would be good to have an older or foreign language movie included occasionally as a Movie of the Week. Something that has stood the test of time that most people haven't yet seen. There are a lot of great movies out there that never play on HBO or Showtime.

Here are my top 10:

Sunrise (1927), Citizen Kane (1941), Napoleon (1927), October (1928), Grand Illusion (1937), Seven Samurai (1954), Greed (1925), City Lights (1931), The Rules of the Game (1939), and Young Mr. Lincoln (1939)

Might as well keep going. Here are my next 15.

Amarcord (1971), The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928), The Gold Rush (1925), Vertigo (1958), Ugetsu (1953), Seven Chances (1925), Tokyo Story (1953), Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964), Ikiru (1952), How Green Was My Valley (1941), Pinocchio (1940), Man with a Movie Camera (1929), Psycho (1960), Duck Soup (1933), and The Godfather, Part II (1974)

Sorry for the longwinded post. I thought someone should make a case for regularly including some of the older classic films.
War games, back to the future, conan the barbarian
Man on Wire. This should be interesting. 
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Also, Lock stock and two smoking barrels & Up in the Air
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb ;)
+Dylon Long and +Lloyd Duke each posted True Romance, so I threw my +1 vote onto both of their comments. One of my favorite movies, although I don't nominate it as a serious contender here, is Paint Your Wagon. A musical set in the days of the western gold rush starring Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin. Very odd seeing Dirty Harry sing a love song. Anyone else familiar with it the movie? It's been a lonely fan club of one. ;-)
Le Plaisir (or just about anything by Max Ophuls)
I watch a lot of movies and I'm curious how this will work out so please add me.

Not sure I could choose just one movie but The Stoning of Soraya M. moved me.
The Castle - it's an obscure Australian film - hilarious - "tell him he's dreaming".
Saving Private Ryan, among many others...
"The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo."
So many to choose from, but one of my favorites is "A Walk in the Clouds" for the beautiful setting and the almost magical feel to it.
Shaun of the Dead, POTC movies, The Princess bride, The thing(1982), Hot Fuzz, Back to the Future, alien and alien vs predator series of movies.
Princess Bride, Casablanca, and American Graffiti were already listed so I'll go with - 'O Brother Where Art Thou
I went to bed late last night when the add requests finally died down. But after waking up today I am completely overwhelmed by the responses you guys have left over night. The wide range of favorite movies chosen by you all is astounding. It's just another testament to how diverse of a community we actually are. And that is one of the main driving principles behind the new Movie Magic Club: we all get the chance to see movies that appeal to all cultures.

After half an hour of furious clicking, I've now added everyone up until this comment to the MMC circle. The first poll will be announced on friday. All MMC posts will begin with the header [MMC] and will be posted to the About section of my profile too. That way you can all keep track of it.

Please feel free to inform your real-life friends about the club too. That way you could watch movies with them in person and then join the live hangouts to discuss them. It will not only make your experience enjoyable, but it will also encourage them to join you on Google+.

Thank you all SO much for becoming MMC members. It is your enthusiasm that makes this all possible. Together we will be making this a huge success.
+Tristan Leblanc out of common courtesy everyone would mute their mics, plus that can be a rule of movie club, but text chat is where convos can happen. I've streamed movies for people before it's a fun experience, people who don't want to talk about the movie as it goes can just hide the chat. The only issue with using Google + for this is not everyone will mute their video so occaisionally that could be a distraction, but it would be funny to watch a horror flick and watch everyones reactions
So many favorite movies to choose from.
-Shawshank Redemption
-Usual Suspects
and the list could go on and on...but great idea!
+j stroud It's great to see someone recommending a movie like Zoolander too. It's not one of the classical Drama/Action movies that we're seeing on the thread here. Loving the range of genres in which your favorites fall in.
Bagdad Café, Casablanca, Alien, Everybody Says I Love You, Hungry Heart, The Wrestler, Shawshank Redemption, Rear Window, Strangers on a Train and a few hundred others
127 hours, Sin Nombre, Source Code, Roman de Gare, Agora, Ip Man, Entre Nos, The Messenger, The Breakfast Club, The Wind That Shakes the Barley, Limitless, Next, Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy, Lemon Tree, Tim; to name a few good ones. 
That is an excellent list +David English. I have yet to see quite a few movies that you mentioned. This will be my chance to enjoy them with you and the rest of the club. Thank you for sharing.
citizen kane (old) midnight in paris (new) evil dead II (cult) the incredibles (animation)
i forgot to add Million Dollar Baby
Godzilla - the original b&w version
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
The Boondock Saints
Mulholland Drive, 21 Grams, Wild at Heart, Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, Fight Club, Memento, The Matrix, Pulp Fiction, From Dusk Till Darkness, Bad Education.... just a few favourites that come to mind...
Dr. Strangelove, Young Frankenstein, Zombieland, LOTR, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Citizen Kane, Lawrence of Arabia .. and on and on. Love this Club idea!
Angels in America (recently watched and so fresh on my mind), Clockwork Orange, Lady from Shanghai, many, many more. Great idea.
Ingloriuos Bastards, to pick a recent one.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
+Jon McLaren +Tristan Leblanc Unless i'm misunderstanding Ahmed, i think you're misunderstanding: (First: Tristan- er, huh?)

The focus of this post is purely to announce a movie club... You know, like a book club. Book clubs aren't about a bunch of adults sitting around reading to each other-- no, they read the books first, then they get together and discuss it. Some kind of rewarding fun ensues. Likewise, this isn't Movies in the Park either, it's Movie Club.

Ahmed clarifies his already plainly writ intentions pretty early on in the thread: the thread is for people to indicate they want into his Movie Magic Club circle for membership and updates.... But rather than have 600 people writing "Yes, me please!" he thought it'd be interesting/neat/curious for the whole community if everyone put their Yes, me please!'es in the form and declaration of their favorite movies of all time. Not to field suggestions for MMC-- just as a sweet little distraction as a bonus to a goal. (a fave/best movie of all time bandy is always a goddamned beautiful thing.)

*That blathering soapboxing there was more for Tristan because, if he wasn't kidding then i think he really has the wrong ideas about this thing.

Tristan- what's your favorite movie, man?
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. I would love to be involved in this idea. Me and movie go together like two things that go together real well.
Back to the future!!! Best movie ever
+Daniel Rice Thank you for summing it all up eloquently. As Daniel said, the point is to encourage everyone to watch movies and then allow them a chance to discuss with the rest of the world. Using Google+ hangouts this can be made tons more fun than going to forums and writing down your thoughts.
Added everyone up until this comment to the MMC circle.
Would be good if people put a youtube trailer or IMDB link in the post for their suggestions.It would save me looking up the ones I am not familiar with :)
+Robert Marshall I'll be including all suggestions from this post in the MMC MotW polls over time with proper information. If you stick around you'll get the chance to see all of them :)
My most recent favorite is City Lights!
Airplane! One of the greatest comedies ever, for so so many reasons. And Revenge of the Nerds. What? Don't you dare judge me! lol
Gra Ro
Smokey and the Bandit?
+Daniel Rice
You guessed, I was not kidding!
You seems to be a good diplomat.
That's a quality I admire, not having it myself.

As indicated in my profile, I'm a problem seeker! And I always find some..
I answer to your 1 line question, which naturally avoids reading between the lines.

"Ne nous fachons pas" - France, 1966 I think

Maybee not the best movie ever, but the one I've seen the most and I still watch when I got the blues. Very efficient! Great music, great actors, funny situations and very sharp dialogs. Don't know if there is subtitled version in english.
Few slow and useless scenes, but nothing's perfect.
This clip contains few good scenes and tunes.
LINO VENTURA.."Ne nous fachons pas" (1966)
I shared a list with some of my favorites movies in a regular ( Maintainable ) post.
Go +Tristan Leblanc! I'm jumping that link right now, but i will tell you-- if it looks like my style, there ain't many places an .srt can hide from me in these here internets!
Any Science Fiction, Complex Romantic Drama - Being quite a Movie Buff myself i'd say this is a brilliant idea. Count me in.
i've been meaning to watch "La Première Fois Que J'Ai Eu 20 Ans", but it's in french. :P no english subtitles available i can find. paging +Daniel Rice and anyone else who has an english .srt for this you can share! :D i've exhausted my google-searching powers to no avail.
I'm all in for any movie. Ones from Chris Nolan, perhaps Bourne or Harry Potter Series, Fast and Furious could do, rom coms equally amaze me. Above all, I'd say one name, INCEPTION.
added the next group of people up until this comment. Thank you for joining. Your movie choices are very fascinating. They've definitely given me lots of suggestions for the MotWs that are to come. Looking forward to the first poll that will be announced this Friday.
The Usual Suspect. "How do you shoot the Devil in the back? What if you miss?"
Rear Window is far and away a favorite. But, I liked most of the movies Hitchcock made with Jimmy Stewart.
Short Circuit (1986). Number 5 IS alive!
I love the idea of this! Casablanca, The Shawshank Redemption, and Cool Hand Luke are a few of my favorites. 
Very cool idea... my film choice is - Baraka.
There are many great movies listed in the comments. I like Moon a lot. No one has mentioned Labyrinth yet.
Underground (Emir Kusturica) and Dr. Strangelove
Cool initiative Ahmed! Let's start with the classic North by Northwest and the French one Le Peril Jeune (Good Old Daze in English).
His Girl Friday or Reservoir Dogs. It's a weird tie
Johnny Dangerously, Princess Bride, My Blue Heaven
Favorites: The Godfather, The Empire Strikes Back, Forrest Gump
The Heiress (with Olivia de Havilland).
It is impossible to choose just one! Pulp Fiction (any movie from Quentin Tarentino actually) Saving Private Ryan, Shawshank Redemption, Star Wars (both trilogies), the latest StarTrek, I could go on and on and on!
Only one movie? Then Lord of the Rings!
I'm a sneaky little bugger aren't I ;) Now to compile a joke within a joke - 2 layers...
Hudson Hawk is my all time fav.
Always has been, always will be, Jaws.
Alot of my favorites are already mentioned. It's hard to pick just one!! I like existential mindbenders.

Enter the Void is the latest i've seen.
3 idiots! I really liked that one. The songs were pretty good. One of the few decent bollywood movies.
To Kill A Mocking Bird, one of those rare exceptions where the movie lived up to the book
OH! Reply to here! I get it now. /in. Starting with favorite movies, it would be hard to narrow it down to a single show... what if we start with our favorite movies from a certain theme, or favorite movies from a certain year?
Overall... my favorite movie is probably Fight Club.

So, +1 for "Fight Club"; everybody should see that show.
Pulp Fiction
The Dark Knight
I couldn't pick just one.
The Cube , Life is Beautiful, 12 Angry Men
everyone up until this comment is in the club. You should now be able to see the first poll at It is also visible on my profile.
Jon Dye
Holy cow, it's tough to pick just ONE movie, but here goes:


Akira Kurosawa was a true master of cinema.

ORRRR (I told you it was tough)

Inland Empire
L A Confidential
Half Nelson
Million Dollar Baby
Ping Lu
12 angry men!
Everyone added up until this comment. You should now be able to see previous MMC posts. The first MotW was announced last Friday. You can find it at this link:

Thank you for joining.
nope, thank you for taking the time to organize such a great thing
Hot Fuzz. And Mystery Men. Oh, and Fargo.
I'm an American male that grew up in the 90s so obviously my favorite movie is Fight Club.
Fight Club for me too. I'm not american though :p
I can't pick a favorite, so I'm going with the first one I've watched on a theater: 'E.T.'

Good Will Hunting; Dead Poet's Society; Saving Private Ryan; The Godfather; Scarface; Indiana Jones series, Star Wars series, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, I have so many favorite movies. +Ahmed Zeeshan please add me to the Movie Magic Club. Thanks.
Very hard to pick a favorite, but for watching with friends it would be Sean of the Dead
