These are movies I can quote just about from beginning to end...I still laugh aloud every time!

Raising Arizona - "Son, you got a panty on yore head."

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory - "What do you get when your kid is a brat? Pampered and spoiled like a Siamese Cat."

I also loved Life is Beautiful but have only seen it once.

Rear Window by Alfred Hitchcock with Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly. Brilliant!! (I didn't see the one with Christopher Reeve.)

Godfather 1 & 2 (If you have the three movie set, use Godfather 3 as a coaster. Don't watch it! Please!)

West Side Story

Sound of Music

Psycho

I have to add Star Trek 2, The Revenge of Khan. I am not a sci-fi person, but I loved it. Ricardo Montalban was definitely rico suave in this one.

Here a few of my favorites:

Christmas in Connecticut (Barbara Stanwyck version) - There was one made with Dyan Cannon (yuck). My husband special ordered a VHS copy of this for me. I watch it every year at Christmas.

Rear Window (Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly)- What a great movie! Even though I have seen it many times, I still get anxious during it.

Mrs. Doubtfire - Robin Williams at his best! I watched this in France, and it was funny to hear the delayed laugh reaction from the audience since they were reading the subtitles.

You've Got Mail - I love romantic comedies.

Kate and Leopald - Perhaps I love Meg Ryan romantic comedies.

Patriot - Mel Gibson convinces me he was an American patriot.

Groundhog Day - What a fun movie to watch, not so much fun to live.

Titanic - Isn't amazing that something which happened so long ago still captures our attention and imagination.

Gone With the Wind - I have only seen this on television, but I would love to see it on the big screen.

I forgot one! Miracle about the US Olympic hockey team. Even though I knew the outcome I was still on the edge of my seat.

My top three favorites have been favorites from childhood and no movie has ever upstaged them.

1. The Parent Trap (loved the re-make, too!) I love everything about it: the whole idea of twins finding each other, of putting a good one over on their parents, of getting them back together (major fantasy for this only child of divorced parents). But also the actors (Hayley Mills, Brian Keith, Maureen O'Hara), the beautiful settings, etc.

2. Oliver! Again, loved the storyline of the pure little kid getting reunited with his family (and wealth), ached for Nancy over her love for the abusive bad-guy Bill Sikes, had a major thing for Oliver Reed, loved the dancing, the pageantry, the characters...

3. The Ten Commandments Possibly the most magnificent movie ever made.

Some others that I really love:

The Frisco Kid Gene Wilder is just wonderful as the rabbi from Poland or Russia or wherever who makes his way through the Wild West. It's very tender in places, and I laugh almost from the beginning to the end.
My Cousin Vinny Too funny and with some important truths to it.
Cool Runnings Funny and a great feel-good movie, also very inspirational.
Point Break I love Patrick Swayze in almost anything he does. Here, the intense bonding between him and Keanu Reeves's character just fascinates me.
Rude Awakenings This is probably all-time favorite #4. Eric Roberts never looked so good as he did with the long hippie hair, and who wouldn't love a movie with Cheech in it? I was born a little too late to be a hippie, only in time to catch the tail-end of the psychedelic era. So I just love this tale of hippies who find their way back to civilization in the '80s or '90s.

Here's an addition to my list of movies I might watch again if they are on:

Vanishing Point

The original from 1971. I like the remake from around 2000, but the original is much better. Fast cars, drugs and no particular point.

Hmmm, so many to choose from! The first that come to mind are:

The Shawshank Redemption

Gone With the Wind

The Godfather I and II . . . OK, III also

The Taste of a Woman (with Pacino)

almost any Audrey Hepburn flick

all the classic dancing musicals with Astaire and/or Gene Kelly

It's A Wonderful Life

that Michael Caine & Steve Martin flick where they play con men (I am drawing a blank on the title)

Quo Vadis
________________

My husband's list would be any WWII, John Wayne or baseball movie and Tin Cup.

Wow! This is a tough one! There are so many out there! The first one that comes to mind, though, is one that I just watched for the first time a couple of weeks ago:

To End All Wars- it's the same story as Bridge on the River Kwai, but focuses more on the personal (true)story of four Scottish POWs. It is a very powerful, moving film about their quest to find hope and meaning amidst all the atrocities of war. I can't say enough how good this movie is - one of the best I've ever seen! BTW, this one was never released at theaters, but is available on DVD.

Shawshank Redemption is my all time favorite. I can watch this again and again.

Pay It Forward - I love the ending (tear jerker).

All Lord of the Rings although I didn't start watching them until The Two Towers had been out for a bit as I was afraid they'd ruin the books. These movies did NOT disappoint.

Cathy in AZ - It's SCENT of a Woman and I really like this one, too.

Steel Magnolias is a classic.

Funniest of all time has to be Happy Gillmore. We LOVE Adam Sandler in our house.


Oh, I had to edit to add - I LOVE WWII movies - Swing Kids really gives a different perspective on the holocaust. This isn't really a movie but Band of Brothers is excellent.

And, finally, my favorite baseball movie is 61. It's a movie about the summer Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle went after Babe Ruth's record.


Smiles,
Becca

If you like the Titanic, pick up A Night To Remember from your library. A *much* better movie and historically accurate (unlike Cameron's version).

Busby Berkely musicals.

I'm only 43, but most contemporary movies leave me underwhelmed.

I also have to add Shawshank Redemption to my list. Once I got past the title and actually watched it, it was brilliant.

The Steve Martin/Michael Caine movie Cathy in AZ is talking about is Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. That is a hilarious movie.

Anyone see "To Hell and Back" with Audie Murphy? I loved that movie! He was so cute and it was a true story. I still watch it if it comes on TV.
