Ciao there Bublelovers!

May I ask you (probably this question was done before)...

What are your all times favourite movies?
The special ones you have always cherished.

I'll give you my list later, in the meantime tell me yours! .... Just curious to hear from the bublebuddies... Posted Image

Cheers,
Andy

Liliana -

You mention a movie I also loved, though not popular with the critics - Meet Joe Black. I have watched it many, many times and really enjoy it each and every time -- mostly because of Anthony Hopkins' performance.

Another movie which only barely missed my most favorite list -- pairing the same two stars, Hopkins and Pitt -- was Legends of the Fall. While Hopkins was wonderful as usual, the ensemble cast in this film was terrific.

Not sure, Andy, how well known Lina Wertmuller's film is in the U.S. I saw it when it came out in '74 (I believe that's right) on a recommendation from a friend.

I'd bet that among foreign film aficionados it's quite well known. If I remember correctly, it got quite of bit of international acclaim at the time.

It was a movie known among the foreign film aficionados, alright! In fact I imagined it was like this....
By the way, I'm glad that you know it as well! And you remember perfectly: it was from 1974! Posted Image

Me and Kittie love a lot of the same movies. That's probably because we watch a lot of movies together. Not so much lately but I'm sure that's going to change soon.

fr00tloop - I loved Dogma too. It's a great movie.

I just remembered another movie that I absolutely love...Victim Of Love I guess I would call it a psychological thriller sorta. It has Pierce Brosnan in it. It was this movie that started my obssession with this older man who is older than my father! lol
Has anyone else seen it?

When Brendan was in London to do 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof', my friend Helen and I decided to get tickets only when we heard that there was a scene where he was wearing nothing but his boxers!

So shallow..... Posted Image

My all time favorite movie is Camelot with Richard Harris & Vanessa Redgrave. I absolutely love the music from that movie. I also like Wizard of Oz, Chicago, Moulin Rouge, all the Star Trek movies and don't laugh but I really loved George of the Jungle with Brendan Fraser. Brendan running around half naked is rather pleasant to watch! LOL!! So what if I'm old enough to be his mother!! Posted Image

I have an all-time favourite: The 1951 black and white version of "A Christmas Carol", starring Alastair Sim. Christmas isn't Christmas without seeing it every year.

A classic question that for movie lovers is next to impossible to answer, especially without some category breakdown. So a partial list, in no particular order, would be:

Epics: Dr. Zhivago; Out of Africa; Dances with Wolves; Gone with the Wind; Godfather I&II

Musicals: Wizard of Oz; Sound of Music; Chicago; Funny Girl

Romance: Laura; The Ghost and Mrs. Muir; Sabrina (1954); A Walk on the Moon; Guess Who's Coming to Dinner; Shadowlands; Goodbye Mr. Chips

Drama: Casablanca; North by Northwest; American Beauty; All About Eve; Dead Poets Society

Foreign: Indochine; Raise the Red Lantern; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

For me, there's simply too many great movies to choose from, as evidenced by my lengthy list. And the list could be so much longer Posted Image

The Virgin Suicides, Moulin Rouge, Bridget Jones' Diary, Pirates of the Carribean, Chicago, High Fidelity and Down With Love.
I can watch each of them over and over and I never get sick of them!
Yeah I know its a long list. But I really LOVE watching movies... I especially love movies with John Cusack, Renee Zwellweger or Hugh Grant!
I could have made the list a lot longer but I figured I had enough! Posted Image
