My favorites... EVER

Mick LaSalle, the SF Chronicle's movie critic, over at has proposed that everyone list their favorites in the following categories, with honorable mentions listed in parentheses. His post, response, and the responses of his readers, can be found here.

I know this is one of those meme things, but here goes, if you're interested. If you want to check any of them out, you can always Google (my favorite search engine).
