    Favorite hands down is Jurassic Park. As a child I was amazed at seeing dinosaurs for the first time. It led me to buying a book I have to this day on dinosaurs. It made my imagination wild. I imagined dinosaurs running amok in Puerto Rico's Yunque (rainforest). This movie makes me babble my excitement ^_^

    My Favorite universal movie is Uncle Buck. Animated film has to be HOP. Favorite Contemporary action is Smokin' Aces. Favorite musical is The Producers (2005) ya I know I don't know why Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane hit the parts perfect. Favorite teen comedy hands down Weird Science. Favorite Monster classic is and always will be JAWS. The Oscar Nominated drama that made the biggest impact on me has to be Forrest Gump. Shows what you can overcome if you want it bad enough.

    I'd say The Breakfast Club. I was in my teens and that movie showed all aspects of teens at the time with their struggles in school. I watched it over & over. To this day, I still say "Dimented and sad, but social" from Judd Nelson. Great flick!

    The Birds. Its the movie that got me into Hitchcock and classic cinema in general. When I was 11 or 12 we went to Universal Studios in Florida and one of the attractions/movies was a section of The Birds in 3D. I remember them saying it wasn't released in 3D due to test audiences thinking someone had released actual birds into the theater. It was probably the best 3D I've seen as it really looked like birds were perched atop the people sitting in front of you.

    My favorites tend to change from time to time, so although I would have said Jaws this time last year, right now, I would have to say Jurassic Park.

    I'd have to say American Graffiti but The Sting is a real close second!! Robert Redford & Paul Newman were an amazing team!!

    Definitely E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial! It's one of my favorite Spielberg movies and it's also the one that I never get tired of watching. I love John Williams' soundtrack for the film, and I always dissolve into a puddle of tears when Elliot and E.T. get sick and the G-men try to operate. I think it's an absolute classic.
