O_O
You're favorite's Escape From New York? I went and saw that before I saw Cloverfield opening night. I didn't care for it. Whatever floats your boat though =\

Best: It's a tie for me. Either Kind Hearts And Coronets, Being There, or Dr. Strangelove. Those are my three favorites of all time (in no particular order, although I suppose Being There is a bit higher than the others)
Worst: Sideways (eugh...)
Funniest: Horsefeathers, Caddyshack, Office Space, A Hard Day's Night, and Clerks.
Scariest: The Shining, CLOVERFIELD!!!!!
Overrated: Hmmm...I'm not sure. Probably Sideways. I hated it.
Underrated: A Hard Day's Night! Although looked at as a great movie, it's not often recognized as the comedy masterpiece it is! Brilliance from all of the fabs.

George: That's not your grandfather.
Paul: It is, you know.
George: But I've seen your grandfather. He lives in your house.
Paul: Oh, that's my other grandfather, but he's my grandfather, as well.
John: How do you reckon that one out?
Paul: Well, everyone's entitled to two, aren't they?

Man on train: Don't take that tone with me young man. I fought the war for your sort.
Ringo: I bet you're sorry you won.

Reporter: How did you find America?
John: Turned left at Greenland.

Reporter: Do you think these haircuts have come to stay?
Ringo: Well, this one has. You know, it's stuck on good and proper now.

Location: La-la land
Best: Pan's Labyrinth
Worst: Eragon- my brother dragged me to see this, and it was the most loathsome piece of crap I have ever seen
Funniest: The Ladykillers (original Alec Guinness version, not half-assed remake)
Scariest: I honestly wouldn't know.
Overrated: Wouldn't know
Underrated: The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford- Nobody saw this, which is a tragedy. One of the best movies I've ever seen.
