I forgot about Maggie Smith and Katherine Hepburn. I love The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and The Lion in Winter. I also forgot about Caddy Shack and Meatballs. See you can’t just do 5.
Oh, I don’t know if I can name just five… how about 10?

When Harry Met Sally – Makes me laugh
Drop Dead Fred - so funny!
Wild Hearts Can’t be Broken - True story about a girl who did a high diving horse show back in the 1930’s, and goes blind in a diving accident. Again, it makes me cry.
Also high on my list:
Sleeping With the Enemy, Pretty Woman, Mystic Pizza – ok, pretty much any movie with Julia Roberts!!
The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Legally Blonde, Where the Heart Is…
[COLOR=black]Its way to hard just to pick 5 but here are a few of my faves (in no particular order):[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]Love Actually- probably my #1. I’ve watched it over and over and every time it just makes you feel good.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]Top Gun- Tom Cruise when he was actually not crazy.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]Steel Magnolias-I cry every time.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]Elf- It’s so cute, and Will Farrell is so innocent like a child in the movie. I love it.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]Goodfellas- I’m not sure what it is about this movie, but every time its on tv I watch.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]Thomas Crown Affair (Pierce Bronson version)- He’s so clever in his plotting. I love how everything doesn’t come together until the end.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]Ocean’s 11, 12,13- Same as with Thomas Crown[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]Zoolander-“What is this? A center for ants? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read… if they can’t even fit inside the building? The building has to be at least… three times bigger than this!”[/COLOR]:roflhard:
I love Love Actually! I could watch that movie over and over again!
I love this thread. People have such different tastes. I have a hard time sitting through movies these days. I don’t know why; I used to love going to the movies. Anyhow, here are some that I’ve loved through the years: Spirit of St. Louis, Rear Window, Meet me in St. Louis (I don’t know why the St. Louis theme, I didn’t go there until my son went to college there), Sound of Music, Blazing Saddles, Radio Days, Annie Hall, Sixth Sense, Harold and Maude, Dr. Strangelove, The Pink Panther, Tora Tora Tora, The Sting.
The Dark Crystal (BEST EVER)
Live Flesh (no it’s not dirty :lol:)
Silence of the Lambs
ANY Kevin Smith film (he’s my hero!)
all time favorite-* Chariots of Fire* every time it is on tv i watch it; also like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, --don’t see many movies tho, and usually once is enough! linknit41
I find that the older I get the fewer movies I watch, but I do have some dvds that I watch quite often.
Hmm, tough! I’d have to say my 5 picks would be:
2: Bubba Ho-Tep
3: Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
4: Dumb and Dumber (such a stupid movie but, it cracks me up!)
5: Monster’s ball
If I could bring a few more, just in case one (or more) of the others was all scratched up :teehee: they’d be:
O Brother Where Art Thou
Harold and Maude
The Man Who Wasn’t There
Fried Green Tomatoes
Follow Me Boys (Kurt Russell’s first movie, I had a crush)
Gidget Goes Hawaiin
The Devil Wears Prada
The Other Side Of The Mountain
About A Boy
Anne Of Green Gables
Sweet Home Alabama
The Christmas Movie with Jimmy Stewart
The Glass Bottom Boat
I can’t stop… Mostly old movies.
I know I won’t be able to stop at five, but here goes. :teehee:
Gone With The Wind - This movie always has and always will be my favorite. I watched it when I was about 10 and fell in love with it, and I’ve probably seen it well over 100 times since.
Pride and Prejudice (Colin Firth version, not, I repeat, NOT, Keira Knightley) - What can I say? I was in high school when this premiered on A&E and I still get butterflies every time Mr. Darcy says “my dearest, loveliest Elizabeth.” P&P is also my favorite book. Yeah, I know I’m a dork.
Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea - these movies (and books) were such an integral part of my childhood, and I too had the biggest crush on Jonathan Crombie. :teehee:
All Harry Potter flicks (although it wouldn’t kill me if Goblet of Fire somehow got lost at sea)
Any musical. Musicals are one of the great loves of my life. My favorites are The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, The Music Man, Meet Me In St. Louis, The King and I, Oklahoma, Singin’ In the Rain… I could go on and on and on. hehe
Any Hitchcock. He was just a master, but I particularly love Psycho, Rear Window, and Rebecca.
The Wedding Singer. I’m not normally a big Adam Sandler fan, but there’s just something very sweet and real about this one.
Young Frankenstein. Just one of the funniest things I have ever seen. PUTTIN’ ON THE RITZ.
Christmas movies. They’re all good.
The Wizard of Oz
I really just love movies. I’ll watch just about anything, but these are just some of the ones I could watch over and over and not get tired of them. I also love horror movies, particularly The Shining, and cheesy ones from the 70s and 80s that you know were probably pretty scary when they were made but which are kind of funny now. I also love old movies. There’s just nothing like the glamour of Old Hollywood. And romantic comedies, and dramas, and historical pictures.
Okay. I’ll stop talking now.
I don’t think I can count any better than the rest of you , but here is my attempt at a list:
Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Pirates of the Carabbean Trilogy
Return to Me
While You Were Sleeping
Kate & Leopold
You’ve Got Mail
Under the Tuscan Sun
’Til There Was You
Back to the Future
Men in Black
Star Trek: First Contact (yeah, I know, but I love it)
Bicentennial Man (no one’s ever heard of it, no one gets it, but it’s fantastic - once you get it)
Great old musicals - any
Ok, I’m gonna be unorthodox. All of those movies are great but I love these…
In no particular order:
Walking Across Egypt: If you haven’t seen this movie, you must try to find it. Granted it is a little difficult to find, but you’ll be glad you put in an effort. Ellen Burstyn portrays an elderly widow who befriends a juvenile delinquent played by Jonathan Taylor Thomas. It’s not only funny, it’s heartwarming. My husband showed me this movie when we were dating and it is still his favorite movie. Everyone he has recommended it to has loved it.
Princess Mononoke: Granted, I think I’m the only one that has mentioned a Japanese Anime. Well, hey…it is rich in story. You actually feel like you are in a different world when you are watching this movie. It may help me forget I’m stranded on an island.
Imitation of Life (Lana Tuner version): This is a must see. When I need a good cry, this movie never fails me. It’s is very dramatic and deals with racial issues that were really sensitive in the 1950’s.
Ghost: The famous pottery love scene. This movie has all the genres mixed into one movie (thriller, romance, drama, adventure, comedy etc.) It’s just that good.
The Lion King: Just because it’s the greatest Disney movie ever!!!
Yes, I would have five copies of the same movie because it is that good. It’s brilliant. It’s a movie I could watch over and over and still notice something new. It has Hugh Jackman in it and he has his shirt off in it…RAWR!!!
Did I mention how much I love The Prestige?!
It’s very hard to pick just five!
Does anyone remember the movie about the wife of a preacher and how she found it difficult to be a preacher’s wife? They went on a picnic and got the children that their father would never let them do anything and they took them to the picnic. One of the boys drowned in the lake. It was a good movie. Also, there was an old one that this woman had an affair with this man and he had young children. Something ends up happening to the man and she loved him so much, but the children wouldn’t have anything to do with her, until finally the little boy gives her a chance. I wish my brain would think of these titles. They were some good movies. Probably 50’s movies.
I told you I can’t stop… I love Coal Miner’s Daughter.
