actually I have to change my favourite Animation movie, to Team America: World Police.

Awesome film

Maybe I should have added favourite Doomsday movie

Doomsday Movie: Armageddon... I tear up every time I see that scene with Bruce Willis saying goodbye to Liv Tyler at the end. I put it down to me having a daughter and not so much the acting though.

Drama- Yup, Shawshank Redemption, good novella too.
Horror- Hellraiser's 1-3.
Musical- Jesus Christ Superstar, my favorite movie and yes, I can sing most of it(2 notes, d'oh).
Sci-fi- The Empire Strikes Back
Animation- Heavy Metal(both of them).
Western- True Grit.
Sports- Slapshot.
War- Patton.

Movies with too many catagories to pidgeonhole- Snatch, Good Will Hunting, Paint Your Wagon.
