In terms of specific category, Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith is my favorite of the franchise. Part of it might be nostalgia as I went to see it with my best friend for his birthday, but I still think it has splendid effects and pretty good acting with only a few hiccups. I don't feel like it's talking down to me like some of the new films or grubbing for nostalgia, using some familiar stuff while still using a lot of new locations and appearances.

The Lost World is my favorite of the JP franchise. Yes, the gymnastics kick is silly, but I seriously think people nitpicked the heck out of this movie while ignoring the weird parts of the first film. Why is it okay to harp on Nick Van Owen (a womanizing liar) disarming Roland's gun (and only that gun) in TLW but completely ignore the aimless subplot of dinosaur breeding (given content cut from the novels), the Tyrannosaurus being loud at times and stealthy others, or the miraculous skeleton breaks in the first film? The effects were improved by an extra four years of refinement by the same teams, there's lots more creature action, the setting is a nice change; and I really got a kick out of the dinosaur media tributes at play. Is it flawless, heck no. But when I want to enjoy myself with a dinosaur movie, it's my Go-To.

Taxi Driver, American Psycho, and Eyes Wide Shut have solidified their place as some of my favorite movies of all time.
That's it. I'll watch some movies later.
