Halloween is coming up. Should I make a thread for Halloween movies, or should I continue this one? My favorite horror movie is Ridley Scott's Alien (1979).

Currently (Re-)Playing: Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void Multiplayer, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Currently Watching: The Shield, Stein's;Gate, Narcos

Not sure I gravitate to any directors to be honest.

Film wise, favourites are

Die Hard 1-3 (the first being my all time favourite)
Good Will Hunting
Jerry Maguire
Michael Clayton
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
An American Werewolf in London
The Terminator

Lethal Weapon 1-3.

Joss wheadon or however you say it.

Also Inception director.

Love DiCaprio movies too!

I don't feel like I've much to add here. I'm not much of a movie guy, and I think it shouldn't be too hard to tell what's my favorite movie and who's my favorite director. But, those aside...

Generally I'm into Tarantino's stuff, though some of his work I didn't like (Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 2). I wanna say Ridley Scott because I recently watched Alien and loved it, but then again I wasn't a fan of Blade Runner (also having watched Aliens and Alien 3 as well, I think they're respectively very overrated and very underrated, I'd say they're both nearly as good as each other but neither comes anywhere near the first movie). Also another movie I really dig but no one seems to give a flying fuck about is Rango (2011), I just loved it, definitely my favorite animated film.

Too many to list, so I will go with my two movies that are tied for #1 for me:

The Patriot (2000)
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)


Way too many.

But here’s five.

Prisoners (2013)
The sixth sense (1999)
Fracture (2007)
The edge (1997)
Batman returns (1992)

I wouldn't say I really have any favorite directors. I generally don't pay much mind to who's directing what.

Some of my favorite movies include;
The Matrix
The Departed
Inglorious Bastards
Django Unchained
Die Hard
Ocean's Eleven
Fight Club
Coming to America

Are you my lost twin or something? 

Exactly this list.
