My favorite is The Shawshank Redemption. I also really enjoyed The Long Riders and Sweetheart Dance.
Also The American President
Hmmmmmm, there are quite a few for me:Godfather (1 and 2)GoodfellasPhiladelphiaWhen Harry Met SallyJaws (I know I'm a big dork for that one!)Uptown Girls
I would have to say:ArmageddonDances with WolvesSound of Musicand last Transformers!So many I like so hard to choose.
You're all right, there's too many. Besides classics like the Godfather and Gone with The Wind. Mine are Fiddler on The Roof, Tombstone and Halloween (but I only watch it once a year).Mom, I like Jaws also. I have the poster in my bathroom with the Psycho house.
Forrest GumpSteele MagnoliasA Christmas Story (watch that one like 50x during the holidays)I know I have more than that too.. but I cant think...
I forgot:It's a Wonderful LifeFargo (I know, that's a bit twisted)Merry - Halloween is on my list too. Every year beginning on the first of October, my H and I get out all the classic "scaries" - Halloween, Psycho, Carrie, Exorcist, The Fog, The Thing, The Shining, etc.
Wanted to add, I also like Jaws..lol
This is probably the first of many posts, because I can never remember them all at one.10 things I hate about youThomas Crown affairPrincess Bride
Gone with the WindWedding Crashers (we visit the area where it was filmed and have sailed on the "Woodwind")National Lampoon's Vacation & Christmas Vacation (because we are like the Griswolds)A Christmas StoryHome for the HolidaysStarsky and Hutch (because Paul Michael Glaser makes a cameo and he is still hot in my book)
Mrs. Ref,Christmas Vacation, great movie! And I forgot about Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
MrsRef, Just had to tell you a perk for me in Fiddler on The Roof is getting to see Paul Michael Glaser (I've always had a crush on him since Starsky). I sometimes put it in to listen to in the background while I'm cleaning.
Hi MrsRef... -Wedding Crashers -Starsky and Hutch Two great movies. Of course, I am a huge Owen Wilson fan!A Christmas Story - one of the bestest movies of we all time. On this one point I think we all can agree... :-)
My favorite of all time is The Breakfast Club("does Barry Manilow know you raided his wardrobe?")Also, Steel Magnolias and You've got Mail.
I love Jaws, too. I worked at a movie theater when it came out, and it was crazy busy. It was fun to stand in the back of the theater just before Ben Gardner's severed head rolled into view and watch 900+ people scream and jump in their seats.And at Christmas, I always have to watch A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation and The Desk Set ( Tracy and Hepburn).
How could I forget "A Christmas Story?" Ewwwwww Scott Farkus! He he
How can I pick just one?The Princess BrideThe Usual Suspects Pulp FictionGreasePretty Woman
Dark comedy:HeathersJawbreakersPulp FictionKill Bill 2 (yes, I thought it was kind of funny, and I hated Kill Bill 1 for being too violent)Frat boy comedy:Grandma's Boy Tommy BoyOffice SpaceIdiocracyTeam America World PoliceOldies but goodies:All About EveDark Victory (the only movie that can make me cry repeatedly)The Little Princess Shirley Temple styleRomance:Cruel Intentions (Reese and Ryan fell in love IRL, so cute!)Also, anything and everything by Kevin Smith. The most unpopular movie I love is probably Butterfly Effect. And last but not least, Donnie Darko. It's not just for emos, it's fun for the whole family. Trust me on that.
Gone With the Wind. No doubt.I have liked others...Demolition ManBackdraftThe Greatest Show on EarthTwo Weeks With LoveWhite ChristmasWhere the Sidewalk EndsDead of WinterDirty DancingSaturday Night FeverStrangers On a TrainRed DragonBandit of Sherwood ForestThe Blue Veil
I love The Breakfast Club too, Fanny. I also like:Dazed and ConfusedThe Big LebowskiParenthood
Pretty WomanThe NotebookUptown GirlsNow and ThenDirty DancingGone with the WindAugust RushThere is probably more but that is all I can think of right now...
Awww, I forgot Dirty Dancing. I can pretty much classify my favorites as ones that I have or would watch over and over. I can't count the number of times I've seen this one. I just love Patrick Swayze, when I found out he was sick I was so sad.
My favorite movie of all time ... I think I've seen it about 20 times ... Shawshank Redemption My two favorite quotes from the movie: "these walls are funny. First you hate 'em, then you get used to 'em. Enough time passes, it gets so you depend on 'em. That's 'institutionalized'...They send you here for life and that's exactly what they take, the part that counts anyway." and "Andy Dufresne, who crawled through a river of shit and came out clean on the other side." Loved that movie
I forgot all about The Notebook. That was another one where the actors fell in love IRL while making the movie. I find romances a lot more romantic knowing that.
Hmmmmmm, there are quite a few for me:Godfather (1 and 2)GoodfellasWhen Harry Met SallyJaws (I know I'm a big dork for that one!)You and I are sharing a brain, Mom! These five are also on my list. I notice you also share the opinion that Godfather 3 was not worthy of consideration. Not good. Andy Garcia barechested in a silk robe, holding a gun? ALL kinds of HOT. Sofia Coppola dying on the stairs? Unintentionally bad comedy gold. My picks:GodfatherGodfather 2GoodfellasWhen Harry Met SallyBraveheartJawsUnder the Tuscan SunNational Lampoon's Christmas VacationSixteen CandlesDreamgirlsWalk the LineSweet DreamsSaturday Night FeverBull DurhamThe Big ChillUrban CowboyTootsieMajor League (I was in the stadium crowd shots of this movie and Rudy, as well)and I love the Harry Potter films.
Oh geez, how can I forget:The usual suspects (I catch myself watching it every time it pops on the tube no matter where in the story)The Big Lebowski - hilarious! "I'm the dude"And Walk the Line is a terrific movie.
• The Third Man • The Royal Tenenbaums • Rushmore • Jules and Jim • The Battle of Algiers • Fog of War • Hotel Rwanda • Crash • Austin Powers!• Stupid Will Ferrell movies • Austin Powers!Also, I am not a "chick-flick" type of gal, but I couldn't help but love "The Notebook"....Such a dork, I was really really happy when I heard Ryan and Rachel got back together!
Crash Thanks Anya I forgot about that one too.
I'm an old musical fan.The Sound of MusicAny other Rogers and Hammerstein musicalThe Quiet ManMiracle on 34th StreetChristmas VacationThe Searchers with John WayneMy Big Fat Greek WeddingA Christmas Story
OOooooooh Crash. Good one! I'm going to have to join Netflix now and catch up on some movies I've missed.Thanks Nina for a fun topic. It's nice to know no matter what side of the J&K fence we sit on, we are all still human! :-)
Just a few of many:The Royal TenenbaumsFlirting with DisasterOffice SpaceDr. ZhivagoElfDrugstore CowboyA River Runs Through ItElectionLost in TranslationShoot the Piano PlayerI'll probably think of more as soon as I post...
