Pulp Fiction

This film is the epitome of cool and whenever asked my all-time favorite film, my answer is always this. I remember my parents renting it when I was a little kid and explicitly telling me I wasn't allowed to watch it... well I did... and I have watched it over and over again, probably well over 100 times now.

Quentin Tarantino invites the viewer into this world he creates - a mix of retro lingo, costumes and of course, an incredible soundtrack. I love how this film isn't told in chronological order, I love the intense monologues every character has, but mostly I just love the style that's evident in every scene. No wonder you can't go out in Hollywood on Halloween without seeing at least one girl dressed up as "Mrs. Mia Wallace" (bonus points if there's a needle jutting out of her chest). Just watch the film, you'll be addicted. - Jill

Swingers

I knew I wanted to move to LA long before I was old enough to move out of Wichita, KS, my hometown. I think that my obsession with Swingers had a lot to do with it.

In my LA dreams, everyone talked just like the character Trent, and lived out their Hollywood dreams (and often times crashing and burning) with unwritten rules and unearned hubris. Strangely enough, even though this film takes place in the '90s, it feels current to those of us who now call LA home. Plus, who doesn't love a "buddy comedy" starring the yet-to-be-stars Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau? Their chemistry is amazing. Also, I've always wanted to be called a "beautiful baby," can we arrange this?! - Jill

The Royal Tenenbaums

I'm the first to admit I have a thing for the director Wes Anderson. I love all of his films, and it's hard depending on the day to choose a favorite, because I think they're all brilliant. My go-to is Royal Tenenbaums, most likely because it was my introduction to his work, and you never forget your first... Anderson is a true auteur director who painstakingly pays attention to all details. From the costumes, the music, the incredibly quick-witted dialogue and the fine line between comedy and tragedy, The Royal Tenenbaums sucks me in and doesn't let go. It's the kind of movie that you learn something new each time you watch it, and thus, it never gets old. - Jill

Back to the Future (Part 1)

This movie incorporates everything a movie needs to be a hit: an awesome car, Huey Lewis and The News, and hints of incest. Who wouldn't want to go back in time and see what your parents were actually like in High School?! It would be so humanizing...or so horrible. - Dan

What About Bob

This movie is amazing and so hilarious. I think Bill Murray can do no wrong, but the concept of a therapy patient stalking his therapist while on vacation and then ruining his life, should be a horror film, but it's not! It's one of the funniest movies of all time, and very underrated. - Dan
