    Fellow Aspies, what is your favorite movie of all time? You can have multiples.

    Mine are probably in a 3-way tie between: Blazing Saddles, Monty Python: Quest for the Holy Grail, and Major League.

    I loved that with its gentle and heartfelt humor. Luchadores are great entertainers.

    Somewhere in Time. I can watch that over and over.

    Knowing. Beautiful Sci-fi movie.

    Avatar. Also beautiful. Looks like a planet I would like to live on.

    All things Star Trek.

    I want to say any geeky movie like Avengers, Marvel Movies in general, DC Movies in general, etc. However, I really am wanting to watch the John Wick series again. I'm not sure I have a particular favourite movie. They're all pretty good.

    I was hooked on SciFi ever since seeing Forbidden Planet in 1956. It was ahead of its time. Gotta agree that Avatar is thrilling and I like its message of sustainability (We are planet eaters, aren't we?).

    Have you seen The Expanse? Itis the best SciFi series I've seen in a while.

    No, I haven't seen that. I can get it on Prime Video. I'll give it a look see.

    I see a few more listed above I really like also: Shawshank Redemption for one.
    Also along those lines I like The Greenmile and Of Mice and Men.

    I was hooked when I first saw Spirited away. I like Shinkai's work, especially the photorealistic backgrounds in Your Name, and the score by Radwimps is fantastic. Most recently I have enjoyed A Silent Voice . . . very emotional for me as I felt the social isolation at that age, though for different reasons.
