-Very tough one. Totally different films (credit to Hanks' versatility). I'm gonna say Forrest Gump because I prefer comedies, but Green Mile is really touching and has forced me to well up once or twice.
-Groundhog Day - Didn't like The Truman Show really. Good premise I suppose but a little bit slow.
-Pursuit of Happyness - really cute film, Will Smith is a class act, he's another really malleable actor.
-Malcolm X - wasn't a huge fan of JFK, I did really like Malcolm X too, I think his story is a more interesting one than JFK's.
-Batman Begins - I'm a comic fan, I must say. Prestige was awesome, but it didn't have superheroes!
-Million Dollar Baby - I like boxing films and this one was very well done, I love that it didn't have a happy ending, it all adds to the film's individuality and appeal.
-Pan's Labyrinth - I didn't like Big Fish. I did like Pan's Labyrinth, one of the few foreign films that I do like (haven't seen many.)
-Amelia - Cute, charming and very british. Moulin Rouge! was all a bit camp and showy. Not my style.
-Trainspotting - I like Ewan McGregor I think he's very talented, and I think this film was more exciting than RFAD. I do like both movies, fascinating looks into the world of drug abuse. But I have to go with the home-grown offering.
-The Matrix - For the fight scenes. Beautifully choreographed (sounds like I'm being a douchebag but I basically mean they looked sweet.) T2 was awesome though, very quotable ha ha.
BQ: I know I've mentioned it before today, but The Bucket List is really uplifting.
You're quite right, if a little on the melodramatic side. I had Anita & Me in my mind, I have not seen Amelie, so it would have to be Moulin Rouge! Regardless of whether I enjoyed it. Also Amelia is my friend's name and I brainfarted whilst typing.
