"I was a big fan of 'The Lost Boys,' but I think 'Nosferatu' is probably my favorite. There's something so timelessly mysterious about it. Just the way that it's shot, it's so dark and shadowy and sinister.
"I believe that guy could be wandering around in the alleys of Transylvania. The teeth and the ears … it's just really scary, the first of its kind. Really ethereal."
Before classically trained actor Benjamin Walker took up his axe as the Great Emancipator in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," out on Blu-ray and DVD today, he had small roles in "Kinsey" and "Flags of Our Fathers." It was on Broadway where he truly made his name, as our 7th President in the Broadway rock musical "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson."
"I don't want to freak you out, but 'Silence of the Lambs' is my favorite movie. 'When Harry Met Sally' is probably my other favorite movie. I think those two tie. My best friend Juliet and I have probably watched it together like thirty times. Every time we're at my house hanging out, even if we're just playing Scrabble, we probably have it on in the background.
"I know they're two very different movies, but I always loved Jodie Foster growing up because she had gone to Yale, she was very bright, she spoke French, all of that. Even before I thought I wanted to be an actor. I always had a thing for her. I was so impressed with her.
"And then that movie was the first that ever scared me in the psychological sense. Plus, I was just enchanted by Anthony Hopkins. I don't know, I just always thought that Jodie Foster was something pretty amazing."
Rachel Nichols stars in "Alex Cross" opposite Tyler Perry.
"'Cry-Baby' by John Waters with Johnny Depp is one of my favorite movies. I probably watched it every single day when I was a kid. I know every word. I can sing the songs. I just love the kookiness and I love that era and I love the music.
"I love the way movies like that can make you feel, and I'm just really into musicals right now. When you can watch a movie as many times as I've watched that one and you still love it, you know it's something special."
Jenna Dewan-Tatum stars in the new season of "American Horror Story: Asylum," premiering tonight at 10 p.m. on FX. She was most recently seen on the big screen opposite her husband, Channing Tatum, in the romantic dramedy "10 Years."
"There's something about it that I find sort of warm. There's a comfort being inside that world. That's the way the director has made the film. It's just such a beautifully crafted film. But there's something about the mood, the feeling of that film which I love."
"'The Dresser' with Albert Finney and Tom Courtenay. I think it's a great story about the theater, and you have two performances which I think are some of the greatest.
"I just think it's an incredible movie, and an incredible play too."
Logan Marshall-Green learned to love theater when he was cast in his mother's plays growing up. In 2004 he won a Drama Desk Award for his role in Neil LaBute's "The Distance From Here." He parlayed that success into roles in films like "Across the Universe" and "Prometheus," which arrives on Blu-ray and DVD today.
"I just remember the gut feeling of watching 'Ben-Hur' on that big Cinemascope screen. That chariot races still hold up — it's unbelievably exciting. 'The Phantom Menace' had a chariot race, didn't it? But that was all CGI. Not in 1959 when they did 'Ben-Hur.'"
Liam Neeson has been one of Hollywood's most sympathetic leading men for over three decades, having headlined such diverse films as "The Grey," "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace," "Kinsey," and Best Picture-winner "Schindler’s List." He reprises his role as the deadly capable Bryan Mills in this week's "Taken 2."
"I would say the entirety of the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy for me just pops because I read those books when I was 7, 8, 9 years old. I was done with the trilogy by the time I was 9 and I’ve re-read them so many times over the years. That and 'Big Trouble in Little China.'
"['Big Trouble'] is another childhood kind of memory. I know there are so many better films, greater films and just classic films.
"I just watched it 7,000 times when I was little. [John] Carpenter knew what he was doing in that movie, he knew exactly what it was. Kurt Russell knew exactly what they were doing, and there's something to be said when a movie knows what it is.
"And it was just, I don't know. The Pork Chop Express will stay with me forever."
Scott Porter stars in "10 Years," currently in theaters, and on television's "Hart of Dixie," which has its second season premiere on the CW on Oct. 2. He is most famous for his role as Jason Street on TV's "Friday Night Lights."
"It's so hard to say because do I name the kind of movie that makes me feel really great? Or do I name the movie that makes me feel really terrible? They're both valid. But I would say maybe just from an actress’s perspective, probably 'Woman Under the Influence' is the best movie of all time.
"The style of filmmaking and the performances … you don't feel like you’re watching a film. It’s hard to believe that it's actually been premeditated and constructed when you're watching that film and I find that really impressive."
There are several movies I love, but if I have to pick one, I'd say "The Wizard of Oz" because it was one of the first movies that I really fell in love with and had a deep effect on me."
Chris Colfer stars on Fox Television's hit series, "Glee," which made its fourth season premiere earlier this week. He also takes the lead in the upcoming film, "Struck By Lightning," which he wrote himself.
"I don't know if I can pick just one; there are so many great movies, and I love them all for different reasons. But there are definitely some that stand out.
"'Lawrence of Arabia' is definitely near the top of the list. I love Peter O'Toole and how epic it is. It draws you in and that story becomes the world while you are watching it. The landscapes, and the story, it just really stands out. I've watched it, I don't know how many times.
"I also love 'It Happened One Night' because of how romantic it is. I mean, Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert — what an amazing pair.
"And then there's 'Cry-Baby,' directed by John Waters. It was my absolute favorite when I was a little girl. For a 12-year-old girl, Johnny Depp was just so dreamy! I couldn't get over it. His performance was incredible."
