Your Favorite Movies?


Post by Apollo the Just » Wed Sep 20, 2017 6:42 pm

What are your favorite movies/movie series? Or at least the ones that immediately come to mind at this particular point in time? No limit or order necessary, just list whatever ones you feel like mentioning. It'll be interesting to see which ones people feel are important enough to talk about.

Mine are currently:

- Fullmetal Alchemist Conqueror of Shamballa (I really didn't like this movie when I was younger and I also disliked the 2003 anime ending in general but.... geez I'm in love with it now)

- Kubo and the Two Strings

- How to Train Your Dragon 1&2,, always and 5ever

- Persona 3 movie series (I still haven't seen 3 or 4, but the first one is gorgeous and the second one was emotional and both were perfect)

- Detective Conan movies, most notably Phantom of Baker Street in all its 2000's VR tropey glory

- Lord of the Rings trilogy (obligatory)
