Favorite movie?

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
My favorite movie I'd say is Jaws, the first one. Compared to the movies now it seems a little corny but it never fails to make me think twice about salt water.

What's your favorite movie?

I would have to go with Star Wars, the orignal one. It's the first movie I saw more than once (I was 13 and I think I saw it 5 times). It seemed to have a little of everything in it, it left me feeling very satisfied at the end, and I happen to enjoy science fiction. Plus it brings back warm memories of my dad.

I have too many favorites! I think that's why my hubby says I'm indecisive...

Classic movie is Gone With The Wind. LA Confidential is fav modern movie. Lord of the Rings definitely fav fantasy/sci-fi. (Hubby is a HUGE Star Wars fan - we have a whole room full of SW toys - so I got burned out on those).

BTW, I'm so excited! I got my baby Trent as my avatar (little pic by my name)!!! Isn't he just adorable?!?!?

Trent sure is a cutie-patootie!

Wow! That's a tough choice, so I narrowed it down to 3. My all time favorite has to be Farewell to the King, with Nick Nolte, The Usual Suspects, and Spinal Tap.

Well, two of my faves- I own them on DVD and watch them both frequently are The Matrix and Castaway. I could watch Castaway a gazillion times and never get tired of it- I cry every single time I watch it.

Definitely, Gone With the Wind. I've, always, been crazy about old movies and Clark Gable, even though he died, when I was 2. Casablanca and The African Queen are high on my list, too. Bogey was one of the greatest.

The Matrix would be pretty high on my list, too. So would Gone with the Wind and My Fair Lady. I used to think Audrey Hepburn was so classy. Oh, and The Sound of Music. But if it was only one movie for the rest of my life, I stick with my original pick.

Lots of wonderful films out there though, aren't there?

There's soooo many to choose from!!!! Let me think...I love American Pie, and recently, American Pie 2. Those are my alltime fav comedies out there. Ummmm, for a romance, I'd have to say probably Pretty Woman. Horror: Either The Shining, or The Exorcist.(but I can't watch either of them by myself!!)Yes, I'm a big chicken :chicken: when it comes to scary movies! Castaway is good, I love Tom Hanks. And anything with Richard Gere in it, I'm there. I don't care how horrible of a movie it is, I love him to pieces!! He's such a sexy, older man....

AP2 is one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time Everytime I hear the Alien Ant Farm version of Smooth Criminal I think of poor 'Jeem' and his crazy glue..."Uhhh, I seem to have glued myself to uhhh myself..." :laughing:
post #14 of 35
Dirty Dancing...doesn't matter how many times I see it! I just love it. My husband always makes fun of me.:pinky: :kitty5: :bubbly: :bubbly:
post #15 of 35
Oldies, but still great? Gone With the Wind and the Wizard of Oz. Like Sunlion, I love the African Queen. The pairing of Hepburn and Bogart was masterful. Now, I enjoy almost anything with Sandra Bullock, Meg Ryan, Mel Gibson, and Harrison Ford. The Net, The Game--I can't pick fewer than ten. It's a Wonderful Life is excellent also.

Melissa!!! I love the Matrix too And I know what you mean about Castaway, everytime he loses Wilson, I start crying... :LOL: I KNOW it's just a volleyball, but it is STILL so sad!!!!

A few of my favorite movies are:

Fried Green Tomatoes
Gone in 60 seconds
City of Angles
Sweet November
Girl Interupted
A Knight's Tale

There are several more, but that's what came to mind.
post #17 of 35
OMG!!! I can't believe I left out Fried Green Tomatoes!! And the Wizard of Oz too..."Ding-dong, the witch is dead. The witch is dead, the witch is dead. Ding-dong, the wicked witch is dead!" :witch:
post #18 of 35
I left out a favorite, too! Tombstone. Val Kilmer is the best Doc Holliday ever.
post #19 of 35
Hmmm...lets see...favorite movies. I have alot of them. I think my fovorite ones have to be Backdraft, Scary Movie 2, Shrek and American History X along with The Fast and The Furious.
post #20 of 35
Reading this, I left out a few, too!

8MM (Freaky wierd sick and twisted movie, but I love it! I'm not allowed to watch it if hubby is home, though. What a wuss!) I have a thing for Joaquin Phoenix - don't ask me why cuz I don't understand it myself.

Gia - I just love Angelina Jolie. She is one of the most beautiful women around.

I could list favorite movies from now until doomsday, but I think my all-time number 1 favorite is The Shawshank Redemption. TNT had it on twice on Saturday, and I'll be darned if I couldn't tear myself away, despite endless commercials and editing.
post #22 of 35
I've yet to see 8mm...maybe I'll rent it one of these nights- I love twisted, freaky movies :disturbed:

Debby- I got very attached to that Volleyball :laughing: I sob everytime I watch that part. Another part that makes me cry in Castaway is in the end when hes talking to a friend about Kelly and how he lost her all over again, but that hes thankful she was with him on that island.. I'm getting teary eyed just typing that

Another movie I like, even though its a Disney film is Air Bud. The kids and I are watching it right now- it makes me teary eyed too. I'm such a sap :LOL:
post #23 of 35
I'm trying to ignore everything about Castaway, because I'm one of the few who haven't seen it. I was going to get it on pay per view, but I was too late. The Shawshank Redemption-yes! What an inspiring movie. Succeeding against all the odds.
When you mentioned crying during Castaway, I was thinking of the best tearjerkers I've seen. For an oldie-Lassie Come Home and, a bit more recent-Ghost.

Speaking of Tom Hank's movies has anyone seen The Green Mile? That was such a good movie. It didn't hurt that Barry Pepper is easy to look at either.
post #25 of 35
The Green Mile was an awesome movie- two thumbs up
post #26 of 35
I read the book, The Green Mile. It was excellent. It's always interesting to compare the book to the movie. I'm sure you all know that Steven King wrote both The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption, a change of pace for him.
post #27 of 35
Funny, I am not at all a Stephen King fan, but 3 of his short stories or novellas are among my favorite movies: Shawshank, Green Mile, and Stand By Me (based on his story The Body).
post #28 of 35
The Green Mile was a great movie.

Don't worry Jeanie you are not alone. I haven't seen Castaway, either.

Even though this wasn't really a "movie" I have to put in Band of Brothers as another fav. Hubby was watching the first couple parts of it, and I just wanted to see all 12 hours again. It was amazing, and even better that it was historically accurate. I learned more about WWII watching that than I did all through school. (Don't know whether that says more about the series or school.... )
post #29 of 35
Valanhb, On what channel did you see Band of Brothers? I'd like to see it.
About Steven King. Believe it or not, I am an English teacher. (and music) I think King could have been, and still might be a writer of lasting literature. His style is excellent, and sucks the reader in almost immediately. The Stand is a good example of some of his best writing so far, in my opinion. Initially, he wrote about the classic theme-good against evil. His themes were universal, a characteristic of good literature. Then, at times, in my opinion, he fell into the trap of pleasing the masses. His lurid themes and use of vulgarity for its own sake caused me to lose some respect for him. He still has the same talent. Now let's see how he intends to use it. Many writers have taken the chance of fulfilling their creativity and have lost the mass audience. It takes courage.
