Favourite movies

Totally off topic lol

I watched chasing mavericks recently, I can't believe how much I love this movie. It really hit home, both my parents lived in Santa Cruz and my dad was really into surfing, recently he moved back near the coast and started surfing again. Seeing this movie showing a place I went to weekly growing up, and as a adult still go often, made me really emotional. They displayed the area so beautifully and accurately. At the credits I cried when they had the surfer circle in honer of Jay, even though it was for the movie it was a true memorial and many people who new jay were present.



So that's one of my favorite movies and why, what are yours?

Re: Favourite movies

I LOVE Pixar animation (I have even Monster's Inc collectibles from the first movie, a numbered edition canvas, etc). Every time I see that "love story" sequence in Up, I cry!

Oddly enough I also tend to like 'darker' movies--Shutter Island, Sweeney Todd (I have all dvds of this: in concert, the broadway version, movie version), The Pianist, Manchurian Candidate.....

I generally will like anything that is pure imagination and visually trippy, even if it is corny. (Alice in Wonderland--saw this repeatedly in 3D in the theater.) I LOVE Tim Burton!!! If he has something to do with it I typically adore it.

Re: Favourite movies

Quigley Down Under has been atributed to the rescue of the Cowboy Movie genre. Since it first came out, Quigley became, and remains, my all time favorite movie!

Oddly enough, my next favorite "western" would be a two part series that starts with "The Man From Snowy River".

All three movies were shot, not in the "Great American West"; but, in Australia!

Re: Favourite movies

I am one of those people that can't really put a finger on my favorite movie. I love all pixar movies and most of the newer Disney animation movies. But I am also a huge fan of superhero movies! Comics turned into movies and original superhero movies. My favorite super hero is superman, so I own all superman movies. ( I was a little disappointed with Man of Steel, but i digress) I just like good entertainment. If it is entertaining, and done well, then I will like it. I really don't like horror movies or any movie shot in the same manner as "blair witch project". Horror movies are just to predictable and the stories are usually just plain bad. Okay, I have said enough, I like movies!
