sci-fi: frequently asked questions about time travel, screamers (1995)
horror: idiocracy

Oh geez, that's a difficult question, like asking which of your children is your favorite. Gun to my head I would probably say "Sunshine" a scifi/thriller/horror film directed by Danny Boyle (28 days later, trainspotting, slumdog millionaire, etc, etc, etc, etc) and written by Alex Garland (ex machina, 28 days later, annihlation, etc, etc, etc)

...but depending what day of the week it is I might say something like "The Prestige", that movie is beyond amazing. Or Apollo 13, that's always been a big favorite of mine. And obviously the films generally considered to be the GOATs like Shawshank Redemption, Godfather 1 & 2, Goodfellas, etc

Favorite of all time would have to be the 1955 B-Movie classic, "Tarantula" (atomic age giant monsters).
Horror: John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness. That creepy theme music stays with you all throughout the movie.
Feel-Good movie: Harvey (1950)

Crikey, there are so many... all the way up from the original 12 Angry men to Jean de Florette, via GlenGarry GlenRoss and Raiders of the Lost Ark all the way to Apocalypse Now Redux and the extended version of Aliens.

Aliens, Terminator 2, and the Abyss must all be enjoyed in the extended/directors cut editions.
Aliens & Abyss are good, those remind me of a couple others I absolutely love: Sphere (based on the Michael Crichton novel of the same name), and The Thing (I liked the remake as well)

My favourite action movie kind of switches between Boondocks Saints and The Matrix. Favourite cult classics, maybe Cube, The Big Lebowski. Comedy, probably half baked and Super Troopers. And sci-fi, always loved watching Return of the Jedi over and over, but The Abyss also blew my mind as a teenager. Guilty pleasures, MIB Trilogy, 2nd was the worst, any 90s Robin Williams and Jim Carrey.

Interstellar is an odd one isn't it. It really does seem to equally split people into the either like it or hate it camps. Personally I think it's up there as one of the best sci-fi movies ever made.

I'm not sure.
I don't quite understand it. I get the storyline but don't quite understand the whole time bending thing (yes, I know apparently time bends... even though it doesn't).

However, from a musical point of view - what a beast!
