The last time I saw this movie, I was 8 years old and didn't really understand any of it. Having now seen it with adolescent eyes, I'm not sure if I love it so much because of a) nostalgia, b) Jack Black fanboying, or c) general awesomeness. I'm going with a combination of the three. Also, those who read a considerable number of my reviews may note, I like almost every movie I see.
Obligatory watch after being obsessed with Phineas and Ferb. I think that cartoon is genius. It takes the formula for old cartoons and uses it to make fun of it in a way that I think is accessible to everyone.

Astounding classic. This is the first old movie that made me like old movies, and it's wonderful. The way Donald O'Connor combined believability with incredible movement in Make 'Em Laugh is unforgettable, and is what made me realize just how talented actors in old Hollywood were, and had to be.
Throughout, I get an impression of grace that I rarely see in newer movies. The fact is, it's just spectacular.
