All time favorite movie Entertainment and Hobbies

    What I meant by "Left Behind" BTW was that there's a series of books aimed at christian fundamentalists about the end of the world. Those who don't get taken up to heaven have to fight it out with the forces of the devil.

    The Stand stck me as similar because it was all black and white and post-apocalyptic. I don't like Steven King anyway... it's been about 20 years since he's written anything remotely interesting.

    I thought it was very "Left Behind"


    Actually it was Nebraska, Theo... A bit away from the deep south, but part of corn and cow country nonetheless.

    Did you know that Stephen King wipes out Des Moines (my former home town) in over half of his books/movies? We Iowans have to learn not to take it too personally!

    Yes, thats the one - 6 hours of pure entertainment. Not sure what you mean by "left behind" but i enjoy the film very much (and have just discovered that i can also get a few quid for my dvd on Ebay! - not that i'd part with it - its a good film for when i'm poorly and can't be bothered to get off the sofa!)

    I also like films such as The Colour Purple and a film i hav'nt seen for ages but thought was great was Hairspray..........does anyone else like it?


    Left behind was a series / books somehow related to the bible... I never did watch it.. something to do with the folk left behind that weren't pure and werent damned either so they roam the earth i dunno.

    The stand came out long before left behind i think... i could be wrong. sooo Left Behind might be a little..... The Standish. I loved the intro song with the slide guitar... which im currently learning how to play.... very slowly. The song is called project blue on the soundtrack. If anyone has the stand sound track i would MUCH appreciate a copy of Project Blue.

    "Field of Dreams" James Earl Jones just has that booming voice that is so great. The speach he makes toward the end of the movie was just great.

    "The Labyrinth" with David Bowie is my all time fav.
    I used to sing all the songs and was madly in love with D.B. when I was like.. hmm.. 8 or so... lol

    Braveheart is great too..
    Probably nobody here knows a movie called "Farinelli", right? I loved that one... great clothing end everything..
    I love historical movies!

    Or just remember "cruel intentions"...

    Not to forget "the last unicorn"! I watch it with my best friend every christmas. It's just a MUST!

    And something I just got into a short while ago: Bollywood-movies! Singing, dancing, tragedy, comedy, love, colors... all in one. Reminds me of these old-time musicals... lol

    Strictly ballroom was fun to watch. And there is an australian movie called "Spider and Rose" (at least here in germany) very funny. I wish I knew how to get that movie somehow..

    I could go on for hours...
    But before somebody hit's me, I think I should stop here.. :-)

    Best Wishes,

    Pride and Prejudice (the A&E version with Colin Firth)
    Die Hard
    The Delta Force
    Going My Way
    The Bells of St. Mary's

    Oooooooh good call. I love the original black and white Haunting. It shows how technically brillliant it is that it can still manage to scare people today. Amazing film.

    Terms of Endearment... I cry EVERY SINGLE TIME i see it! And if you have seen it you know where those parts are. I thought the casting was perfect...
    Urban Cowboy... I think that the dynamics between John Travolta and Debra Winger were so VERY realistic....
    Imitation of Life... Old black & white...
    A young woman has to live with an unbearable regret after denying her mother because of her african descent... Kleenex box on lap... EVERY time!
    2 super natural thrillers that I love are... The Entity with Barbara Hershey
    and the old black and white original The Haunting... Both of those scared the heeby sheebies out of me...

    I agree with just about everyone here, so many great movies, and diffucult to pick just one. The one movie I have always loved since I was a child, and watch at least three times a year is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Everytime Charlie opens that candy bar he bought with found money, I want to jump up and cheer for him!

    My all time favorite movie is an oldie "Arsenic and Old Lace". I'll watch it any time it's on tv (haven't found it on DVD yet).

    For more modern movies, "Pretty Woman", the orginal "Star Wars" trilogy or the Indiana Jones movies.

    Hi, all! I'm a newbie... I have to respond on the LOTR Trilogy... I just finished watching the 3 extended versions this weekend. In fact, I did watch them back-to-back as a reward for finishing my senior project at college.

    And yes, I cry every time Haldir dies.
