Weigh In - "What is Your Favorite Movie of All Time?"
03/06/2012

Weigh In - "What is Your Favorite Movie of All Time?"

The 2011-12 movie awards season came to its annual culmination with the airing of the 84th Academy Awards on Feb. 26 - but that doesnt mean the cinematic debate has to end!

Watching more than a dozen organizations nominate and present achievement  awards for the years top actors, soundtracks, visual effects, and much more over the  last few months inspired Living In Media/livinginmedia.com to propose the most  grandiose movie question of them all to our county residents.

Exactly how big of a field did our de facto film critics have to choose from? Its hard to  say, considering the motion picture industry dates all the way back to 1878, when  photographer Eadweard Muybridge created the first motion picture by weaving still  frames of a galloping horse together to scientifically prove that all four hooves lifted off the  ground while it was running. As a result, the aptly-named The Horse in Motion, a 16- frame piece was born. Muybridges ingenuity sparked the creation of several movies in the coming years, thus laying the framework for the countless theatrical masterpieces we see today.



Across a sampling of a few of the fantastic theaters in Monmouth County, our  participants were eager to play a supporting role in our cinematic poll. Only one movie garnered multiple mentions: Gone with the Wind, which isnt surprising since, when  adjusted for inflation, its the top-grossing film of all time. The answers spanned from the  old-time classics of Casablanca and Wizard of Oz to the ubiquitous Harry Potter, and the  reasons behind them were just as varied. Some were impressed by a starstudded cast,  others by an intriguing script or moral, and a small faction enjoyed movies that rekindled  their childhood memories. Just for fun, try to imagine what name you would pull out of  your favorite movie of all time envelope


 




 

Gone with the Wind. It had romance and enough drama to keep your attention. Its a classic.

- Thelma Johnson, Little Silver
Gone with the Wind. The acting and the storyline were superb. It was out of the mold for movies of  its time.

- Jeanne and Jim Clark, Jackson


Taken. Liam Neeson is one of the best actors Ive ever seen. The plot is very intense.

- Kapil Joshie, Middletown


Saving Private Ryan. I like the concept of it showing how to be an honorable American. Anything  with Tom Hanks is awesome.

- Danny Conte, Aberdeen




The original Jaws. Steven Spielberg is a master. It was a compelling and suspenseful movie. The original was much better than the sequels.

- Ann Faris, Bradley Beach

Id say its a tie between Rain Man and Mrs. Doubtfire. You dont see actors like Tom Cruise or comedians like Robin Williams anymore.

- Sally Silvera, Ocean




On the Line. It has a little bit of everything: comedy, romance, good plot and drama. I really like it.

- Anthony Allerton, Long Branch



Boondock Saints. I like all the action, and that concept of vigilantes catching all the criminals.

- Joshua Champlin, Manchester


The Blues Brothers. It was the best comedy of all-time. Theres only one John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.

- Hal K., Colts Neck

Smoky and the Bandit. Its the best action movie out there. Burt Reynolds is great in it. I wish I  could drive his car.

- Harold Mitchell, Eatontown


 
The Shawshank Redemption. It was a great drama, the kind where it really makes you root for the main character.

- Matt Marut, Keyport

 
Cannibal! The Musical. Its just a good, silly comedy.

- Alyson Zilai, Brielle

A Little Princess. It was my favorite movie when I was a kid. It always reminds me of watching it with my dad and my life back then and that makes me happy.

- Angelina Iaria, Highlands

Red Dawn. I always think what if? when I watch that. What if we were invaded by the Soviets back  then? Could teenagers have helped to fend them off? It was a great concept.

Chris Iiara, Highlands



The Big Lebowski. With a cast like John Goodman, Jeff Bridges, and Julianne Moore, it had the  best acting of any movie.

- Mike Stanzione, Manalapan


Casablanca. Humphrey Bogart is so charismatic in it. It was a great blend of comedy, romance,  war... and illegal activities.

- Isabel L., Freehold




Groundhog Day. Bill Murray was a great comedian in it. I like the idea about getting to live the day over and make it perfect (left)

John Gibson, Fair Haven


Dolphin Tale is my favorite. Ive seen it four times. I like it because its based on the true story of  helping a real dolphin. (right)

Harry Gibson, Fair Haven
 

Wizard of Oz. It takes me back to my childhood and watching it with my dad. Its the quintessential American classic.

- Jane W., Red Bank




Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. I read all the books and thought they translated it to the screen well. It is the most epic of all the movies in the series.

- Rebecca Allerton,, Long Branch
Not Pictured



Finding Nemo, The Little Mermaid, and Wall-E. The plots are cute and inspirational. The genius of  Disney and Pixar is the cutting edge in graphics and animation. Outstanding!

- Mary K., Sea Girt




I love Peter Pan, but just the original one, not any of the remakes. Its easily the best cartoon movie  of all-time.

- Maureen Silver, Middletown

The Hangover. That movie redefined the comedies of this entire generation. Its one-of-a-kind  hilarious.

- Samuel Weinstein, Deal
