This is a question Best Films Ever

We love watching films and we're always looking for interesting things to watch - so tell us the best movie you've seen and why you enjoyed it.

Okay, so it's been out 2 days, but already I hold it in my list of top films for its sheer utter brilliance. First 15 minutes of the film, not a word is uttered by the main character. Mainly because he can't talk well anyway, but still. The film just sucks you in, and you can't help but feel sorry for the little fella, living on Earth for 700 years after we've all packed off into space. There's the obvious environmentalist message in the film, and also the fact that we've all become obese and drink food from cups is an obvious jab at the current obesity crisis. Some absolutely brilliant moments, like M-O the little cleaning robot jumping from his designated light-tracks to clean up WALL.E's muddy tracks and the computer robot learning to wave. Sounds daft,but watch it and you can't help but smile. And the references to 2001 are there, with the HAL-like AUTO, the auto-pilot bot, and even the classic bum-bum-bum...BUM-BUM (no idea what the music is actually called) So anyway, go watch WALL.E!

Also, my other fave films are:

Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas as it's the first Disney film I properly remember, and it's sheer awesome.

Hairspray, because it's possibly the best movie musical I've seen in a long time, even better than Grease. Songs are amazing, Nikki Blonsky is perfect as Tracy and John Travolta dragging it up as Edna is a great laugh.

Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, because he actually stayed true to the book (to a degree) and didn't have psychadelic Oompa-Loompas or bloody Golden Geese or a dish-water Chocolate River. Also the songs for the kids are much better as each kid has a different genre of song instead of the same-y Oompa-Loompa Doopadee Doo tripe.

And finally, The Rocky Horror Picture Show because it's sheer madness, it has Meatloaf, the songs are great and the Time Warp is a great dance. (It's bring your knees in tight, not bend your knees in time!)

Was excellent. Much truer to the book than the old one, mainly due to another 30 years of special effects wizardry. And Johnny Depp's slightly distrurbing performance as Wonka. And Deep Roy's atmospheric voiceover.

Nightmare is also brilliant - I just love the idea of the Haloween guys "doing Christmas".
