Favorite Movies?

I am a HUGE movie person. I like pretty much all types of movies from action to foreign and have had a hard time lately finding new movies to watch. Any suggestions or favorite movies you guys and girls would recommend??

Re: Favorite Movies?

Hehe, I'm pretty much the same, I like pretty well all movies. How does one that likes most movies suggest to another person that likes most movies what movies to watch Boy this is a conundrum

Re: Favorite Movies?

I love watching movies! I'm a Netflix addict. Is Netflix anywhere but the US?

Anyway, I have very eclectic taste in movies. My favorites include:

Amadeus
Pulp Fiction
Dodgeball
Dial M for Murder
Star Wars (the original before George did all that weird stuff to it)
Young Frankenstein
Schindler's List

I love bad movies as well as good movies.

With Netflix, I'm working my way through "the movies everyone should see" that I haven't seen yet. Just watch Apocolypse Now and the Godfather Trilogy is in my queue.

Re: Favorite Movies?

Every parrot lover must see "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill". I was hesitant when it was recommended to me - I'm not much for documentaries, but this is not like other documentaries. It was the most moving film I've ever seen.

I also just saw "Checking Out" with Peter Falk. Not much action to be sure, but incredible writing and incredible acting. It quickly landed on my top movies of all time.

Both of these are available for "Watch instantly" on Netflix.

Re: Favorite Movies?

I recently saw Shutter Island and Law Abiding Citizen - both great.

Worst movies ever are a Fist Full of Yen. One of the fight scenes the camera pans to the grass and stays there while you can hear the fighting going on off screne another very odd make-no-scense is a really old one called Eraserhead

One movie that I really enjoyed and I thought was shot real well was 'The Aviator' (But I'm addicted to aircraft so my opinion may be skewed somewhat lol)

And I always slot in 'Bad Boys 1-2' when I need a good comedy/action hit.

Re: Favorite Movies?

My personal favorites are Poseidon (the newer version), Journey to the Center of the Earth (newer version), Blood in Blood out (really amazing movie, I highly recommend), Flipper, the Proposal, and Free Willy 1-4. All amazing movies

If you like Clint E. Grand Torino was very good. Here are some more titles: Cross Creek, The Hurt Locker and Crazy Heart.

Re: Favorite Movies?

Clint E is a legend, I loved his spagetti westerns and the dirty Harry films but there are more of his films I liked also. Tom Hanks is another favourite. The Shawshank Redemption is anothe rone that springs to mind but I also love old legendary films and some 60s films (British)

I haven't yet seen the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill but would love to.
