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

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 doesnít mean the cinematic debate has to end!

Watching more than a dozen organizations nominate and present achievement  awards for the yearís 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? Itís 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. Muybridgeís 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 isnít surprising since, when  adjusted for inflation, itís 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 Ďfavorite movie of all timeí envelopeÖ



Gone with the Wind. It had romance and enough drama to keep your attention. Itís 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 Iíve 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

Iíd say itís a tie between Rain Man and Mrs. Doubtfire. You donít 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. Thereís only one John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.

- Hal K., Colts Neck

Smoky and the Bandit. Itís 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. Itís 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 Ďwhat if?í 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.

Ė 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)

Ė John Gibson, Fair Haven

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

Ė Harry Gibson, Fair Haven

Wizard of Oz. It takes me back to my childhood and watching it with my dad. Itís 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. Itís easily the best cartoon movie  of all-time.

- Maureen Silver, Middletown

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

- Samuel Weinstein, Deal
