I love a good LAUGH ! me and my Hubby watched "Duplex" it was so hilarious that we had to stop it and keep re-winding we laughed so hard that my dry eyes teared! and another hoot was "Grumpy Old Men" !!

My first, scariest movie a hundred years ago, that I lost many a nights sleep over was "The Birds" and then the "Exorsist"

Lastley "Thelma & Louise"
Love all Steve Martin- Kathy Bates - Sandra Bullock-
Maybe you've seen something that sounds good and I would like to watch...

My scariest was "I was a teenage werewolf" and all time favorite is divided up between three: Blade Runner, Casablanca, and In Harm's Way. Hmmm, I'm showing my age here!

My all time favorite movie is The Usual Suspects. Also love Pretty Woman, The Negotiator, and The Lord of the Rings (all three in a row).

And any good comedy. Loved Dodge Ball!

I love a good comedy, But I would have to say my all time favorite is "Its a wonderful life" I have the movie, but I look foward to seeing it on television every year at holiday time, And I also look foward to all the holiday carol movies, nothing like a good scrooge to get you in the spirit. Take care all.

Oh Robin,

...you ARE a romantic, aren't you?!...So am I!lol

I also love that movie!

I love comedys too!

Our children and grands have stopped asking us, "Have you seen -----, or ----?....Because if it's "newer" than 20 years old...they can be relatively sure we haven't yet seen it!lol
When my hubby isn't channel surfing, he's sleeping! Plus, if it's 9:00 PM, his peepers are closed!

Hello debonair,

I am a romantic, when one of my children talk of a newer movie Ive usually never even heard of it. I always tell them there is more class in an oldie but goody than in anything made today. My oldest gets a kick out of the fact that I still watch little house on the prarie, and how no matter how many times I see a re-run of a certain episode I still cry, lol, The older stuff will always be the best as far as I'm concerned. Glad to hear I'm not the only one.
Best wishes,
Robin

Sandra you mentioned the "E" word! I saw it during a sleep over, it was on cable, no adults in the house just a bunch of girls way too young and silly to be watching it. We scared ourselves witless needless to say! :emoticon-insomnia: As creepy as the Birds was it has to have in it some of the worse acting ever thanks to Tippi Hedren.

Jeannie, would the teenage werewolf film be a black and white one with Michael Landon in? If so during it is delivered one of the most ridiculous lines of dialogue, the father comments to the teenager that he wished he didn't want raw hamburger for his lunch! Oh come on!

Two of my favourite films, and my husband's are Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Michael Caine and Steve Martin (long live Ruprect the monkey boy...ohboyoklahoma!) and Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Steve Martin and John Candy (you're going the wrong way!!) They don't make 'em like they used to.

Take care.

This is toooooooo hard! :emoticon-hug:

I have to have reliable fail-safe films for any kind of emergency.

How could anyone go past "Some Like It Hot" when in need of rib-tickling?

For some spiritually uplifting cinema time, Scorsese's "Kundun" is hard to beat.

And when in need of loving, there can be NO RIVAL FOR CYRANO! Yes , "Cyrano de Bergerac" with Gerard Depardieu. Ah, Cyrano! :wub: Whoa.

What a wonderful thread!!! :D

I have so many favourite films (I only like the old ones though!! ;) )

Like Robin, I love 'It's a Wonderful Life'; I adore Jimmy Stewart :wub: :wub: & always sob pleasurably most of the way through. The same with the film 'Scrooge' (the vastly superior version with Alistair Sim who was the perfect Scrooge.) Also 'A Star Is Born' (the first 2 versions)

For comedies 'Some Like It Hot', 'The Court Jester' with Danny Kaye & most of 'The Road' films with Bing, Bob Hope & Dorothy Lamour.

I also love 'The Apartment' with Jack Lemmon & most of the early films with John Mills.

I adore 'proper' musicals like 'My Fair Lady', 'Oliver!', 'Carousel', 'Oklahoma!' & 'West Side Story'

I think that's probably enough; I can feel myself becoming a bore!!! ;) :lol:

I love so many that are mentioned here- also The Lord of the Ring trilogy, Princess Bride, Babe, Tampopo (Japanese,) Spirited Away.

But the one that I love the best is Groundhog Day- because I really believe that we should all get enough tries at life to finally get it right!

I'm a total movie buff so my favorite movie list is way too long to list here. However - ditto to all of Sam's, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, LA Confidential, Lone Star, Memento, Pam's Labyrinth, The Incredibles, 2001/2010, numerous thrillers, and lots of scifi. I'm not an old movie buff as you can tell.

Oh, I absolutely love good movies, especially the old classics: Gone With the Wind; It's a Wonderful Life (actually anything with Jimmy Stewart); Grapes of Wrath (love Henry Fonda too); Shane; Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte with Bette Davis (have been in the antebellum home in Louisiana where it was filmed). Some of the newer movies I like: The Notebook; Usual Suspects; The Guardian; and just watched Old Dogs with John Travolta and Robin Williams and thought it was the funniest movie I have seen in a long time. I could go on and on. :P
