Ciao there Bublelovers!

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

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... icon_smile.gif

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! icon_wink.gif

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 icon_smile.gif

Spellbound

Signs

The Italian Job

Ocean's 11 (the newer one, not the Rat Pack one)

Return of the Jedi

all Lord of the Rings

The Last of the Mohicans

Amelie

You've Got Mail

These are ones that I could (and have done so) watch again and again. I watched Spellbound twice almost back to back last week. I'm not much of a swooner, but I swooned when Gregory Peck walked in the room.

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.

Did you see the rat pack version of Ocean's 11? I loved it. I haven't seen the newer one but I discussed it with my friends who had and apparently it sned completely different. The end of the Rat Pack version was so good I can't imagine it ending any other way. It was the most unbelievably funny end. It really sucked to be those guys at the funeral!

Thanks for replying folks icon_smile.gif As far as I see Bublepeople have a fine taste also when it comes about movies! Some of your choices in my opinion are really wonderful !! And original.

Ok, being myself a serious movie addict (Karin, I know you can understand me), I prepared just a very short list of my essentials:

"Some Like It Hot" (Just a perfect film)

"The Odd Couple"

"A New Leaf" (I'm a HUGE Walter Matthau fan! His ruthless cynism here is just so irresistible. I love him!)

"The Out-Of-Towners" (you can see I'm a great, great fan of Lemmon as well!)

"Radio Days" (Possibly my favourite Woody Allen movie)

"Sunset Boulevard" (A truly masterpiece.)

"The Spiral Staircase" (Such a great noir. Suffocating and suggestive)

"Virgin Suicides" (Someone mentioned it here. Ooh Kirsten....!)

"Duck Soup" (To me, the Marx Brothers at their best. A toast for Freedonia!!)

"The Young Frankenstein" (I started to madly love this Mel Brooks' film since the age of 5. Still one of my all times fav!)

"The Bride Of Frankenstein" (More amusing than scary actually)

"Hollywood Party" (Peter Sellers making disasters. Haha, fantastic!!)

"Mine, Yours, Ours" (Peter Fonda and Lucille Ball having troubles with their many kids)

"Mon Oncle" (a very cute commedy from the french film maker Jacques Tati)

"Cat People" (another great, suggestive noir...)

"Women" (by George Cukor - An exquisite, and original piece of cinema from the 40's)

"The Body Snatcher" (with the most fascinating Boris Karloff)

"Black Sunday" (another black, gothic tale from the italian director Mario Bava. Yes, I'm also into good old horrors...)

"Plan 9 From Outer Space" (Watch out, it's Ed Wood!!)

"Mommie Dearest" (Grottesque. The most hilarious, camp movie I've ever seen)

"Travolti da un insolito destino nell'azzurro mare d'agosto" (Irresistible italian comedy of the 70's. Madonna did a very bad, bad, BAD remake lately..."Swept Away". Gosh!)

"The Gay Divorcee" (Just a fine romance from Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers)

"The Graduate" (how seductive Anne Bancroft can be? Uuh!)

"Pillow Talk"

"Artist And Models" (Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis and the lovely Shirley McClaine who's irresistible when she sings "Innamorato" to Jerry! Hehe...)

"Cactus Flower" (the great Matthau again with Goldie Hawn and Ingrid Bergman)

"The Blues Brothers" (beware of the penguin!)

"Grease"

"Picnic At Hanging Rock" (fascinating, misterious film)

"What's Up Doc?"

"Funny Girl" (you can't resist to Barbra's humor)

"The Monty Python's Holy Grail"

"And Now Something Completely Different" (The Pythons again, I love them!!)

Fellini's "Roma"

"Magnolia" (Really touching. Fantastic actors!)

Anything from Laurel & Hardy (sons of the desert, a chump at oxford, pack up your troubles...and many of their short films)

From the latest stuff on the big screen I could also add (the obvious choice) "Down With Love" and the very beautiful Tim Burton's "Big Fish".

And that's just a small selection of my favs. Wasn't it short the list? icon_eek.gificon_biggrin.gif

Keep on discussing! More favourites?

Ciao,

Andy

OMG!!!! A couple of you reminded me of Down With Love & Stand By Me! How could I have forgotten?????

Also, Now & Then. This is a very sentimental movie for me because everytime I see it, it reminds me SO much of 3 of my best friends & myself. We've been friends for SUCH a long time (ranging from 20 years to 13 years). Plus their characters pretty much match us all (maybe not 100%, lol...but pretty close)

Interesting lists, everyone. Especially yours Andy! Very broad range of films listed there.

"Travolti da un insolito destino nell'azzurro mare d'agosto" (Irresistible italian comedy of the 70's. Madonna did a very bad, bad, BAD remake lately..."Swept Away". Gosh!)

Is this the Lina Wertmuller (sp?) Swept Away (I obviously can't read Italian)? If so I agree, that flick was fabulous. Madonna should be ashamed of her version!!

So many good movies, so little time icon_smile.gif

Thank you karin! Maybe an eclectic list but a bit long... But I really could go on & on!

Yes, I meant exactly that Lina Wertmuller movie (the very long italian title lierally means something like "Swept away by a curious fate in the deep blue sea of August")! With the dynamite couple Mariangela Melato/Giancarlo Giannini (fireworks between the 2!!)

Is this movie well known over there in USA?

Yes, I think Madonna (and husband director) did a quite insignificant, unecessary remake...
