Re: All Time Movie Favorites

 My latest favorite still.....is......let's see if this sentence will tell you.

Do Not Seek The Treasure.

Yep, that's one of my favorites.  And I love The Saint and I love watching Miss Congeniality over and over.  You want to kiss me... It makes me giggle.

And then again, I'm a huge Johnny Depp fan. 

About two years ago I made a list of all the DVD's we owned, mostly to keep track of them, because they kept getting borrowed.  We love movies in our house and won't go to the theater so we can own the movie.  (Well, hubby and I won't go), until The Grudge came along and he drug me to that one.  Eewwwww. 

 

If I was standing on a fish, I'd slip and fall......

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

 Well, that movie just always makes me laugh and I love the part at the end when the guys are up on stage singing and George Clooney is singing and the part where he pulls his beard down....giggle like a little girl.

My son had gone to the movies with his girlfriend and he texted me about his dinner being ready for him when he got home or something like that, so I texted back.  Do Not Seek The Treasure!!!

He texted back, saying, 'You're weird'.   Guess he didn't catch what I meant.

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

I love Girl, Interrupted with Winona Ryder. One of my favorite parts is when her character asks " Have you ever stolen anything that you had the money to pay for?" hehehe

 

BINGO! 

Leave them wondering~

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

I watched it again the other night, now I wanted to add "Batman Begins".

I guess you have to be into the genre to really like it. My favorite lines from the movie (sorry if I mis-quote):

Thug- "You're in hell, and I'm The Devil!"

Bruce Wayne- "You're not The Devil, you're practice!" (then he kicks the guys ass, along with his 4 or 5 friends...)

 

Crooked Cop, being interrogated by Batman, hanging upside down off a building- "I don't know, I swear to god!"

Batman, dropping him the length of said building to scare the crap out if him- "SWEAR TO ME!"

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

It's more of a comic book movie then a sci-fi, I am a little bit of a comic book geek!

My all time favourite movie is The Shawshank Redemption - are there many others who love this movie?

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

I love it. I'll watch anything with Morgan Freeman in it.

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

Yeah Morgan Freeman is a good actor, don't see as much of him these days though. The Shawshank Redemption is one of the few movies I've never forgotten the promotional slogan to; "Fear Can Hold You Prisoner, Hope Can Set You Feel".

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

I agree, Morgan Freeman is the man. He's in two movies (at least) that are on my lists above...
