"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."
"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."

"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."
"I love 'Love Actually!' I just love that movie. It's such a feel-good kind of film. The whole cast had such great chemistry, and the story was just so… so… wonderful!
"That's the kind of romantic movie you want to watch again and again and again. I remember when I saw it the first time and when it reached the end, I was like, 'Start it from the beginning!'
"I really just love it. And that's all there is to say."
"My very favorite movie is called 'A Place in the Sun,' with Elizabeth Taylor, from a long time ago. You know, it's a very old, sound piece of art. I just absolutely adore it. "
"It's a great story and Elizabeth Taylor's performance in it was just flawless."
"She's just unbelievable."
"I have to go with 'The Wizard of Oz.'
"When I was a kid, I used to watch it like twice a day. It's just enchanting man. Like, that's a movie!
"I think it combines theater elements and fantasy, and it's whimsical and even scary. Those flying monkeys are terrifying.
"I also used to have a crush on Judy Garland."
"The first poster I had up on my wall was Marky Mark -- I loved 'Fear...' That's not my favorite but that was a great movie.
"It's really hard for me to pick... I really love Tim Burton -- He's totally dark. I love that stuff.
"I don't really have a favorite because I love them all. Honestly, I couldn’t pick. I’d love to work with him. He’s right up my alley, I like that."

"My favorite comedy of all time? That's easy: 'Being There.' It's not just a comedy. It's a deeply touching drama. It really crosses genres in an amazing way.
"When I first saw it, I was totally amazed. In that movie, Peter Sellers isn't just an actor, he is like... a savant. That role required someone with a special talent and he nailed it. And Shirley MacLaine? Also amazing!
"I just really, really love that movie."
