Multimedia, AV From time to time, we like take a break from technology news to query our readers to find out details about our community. Previously, we asked you to show us your desktop. This time, we ask "What's your favorite movie?" Is it sci-fi or comedy? Action or maybe drama? Share your favorites so we can check them out! I'll start: while I'm tempted to say The Red Violin, I'm not sure there's a better screenplay than The Usual Suspects.

I just love the atmosphere in this movie.
No MTV flashing of frames, this movie is from the time you can actualy see what's going on :-)

Plus-freakin-plus.

I enjoy turning my brain off and watching a decent action flick as much as the next person, but most of them in the last few years are next-to-unwatchable thanks to jump-cut and shakey-cam combination. It always gives me the impression that the filmmakers or actors were incapable of doing convincing fight scenes, so they just resort to a cheap trick to make the scenes seem intense without actually showing anything.

Oh noooo. I saw that movie as a child - still gives me the creep very much. Never slept worse than that night.
