Ok, best movie ever, still love it every time I watch it, although the aesthetic got dated, and the sentences heard so many time it looks now like a parody. And because it is such a Geek movie, I usually say my favorite movie is another, but really, it is probably the movie I saw the most, and really enjoyed the science-fiction theory of our world, looking really true, and cynical. The rest of the trilogy wasn't as fulfilling but this one was simply genius.
