My all time favorite movie is Top Gun. I wish I could fly those planes! I also liked all the OLD Star Trek Classic Movies.
I'd like to get the Forever Knight DVD's. I just loved that show about the vampire cop when it was on TV. I liked the one movie with Robin Williams where he dies and tries to find his wife who committed suicide. Great graphics in that one, and in Ants. I like movies with good graphics as well as sci-fi/horror/vampire type stuff. Not much into comedy movies or sit-com TV shows. Favorite TV show is Law & Order SVU. More movies I like are Mr. Holland's Opus, and another one where Richard Dryfus is a dead pilot trying to keep his living girlfriend to himself. She crashes the fire-fighting plane into a lake and he saves her and lets her go on with her life. (Sorry, my memory is sometimes a bit of a sieve and I can't remember the names of the best ones, except Top Gun, of course!) I also like the classics ... A Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th St., Gone with the Wind & Dracula.
let's see so many. tombstone, a few good men, christmas vacation, star wars, some star treks (khaaaaaannnn lol), phantom of opera (i prefer play but i gotta say the movie too cause i love the music), liar liar, waterboy, full metal jacket..oh i could go on and on..but that is a few off top of my head :)
Well, I have to agree with LonesomeDove, anything with Tom Hanks (that is not a war movie or features him playing a gangster) will get my full attention. I also loved him and Meg Ryan in "You've Got Mail".
A few more favorites are:
"Ballad of Naramaya" (obscure independent Japanese film that made me weepy).
"Eat, Drink, Man, Woman"
"The Wedding Party"
"The Joy Luck Club"
"When Harry Met Sally"
and many, many more. But the one movie that I cannot resist watching if I see it while flipping through channels is, "HALF BAKED".
Anything with Tom Hanks is a must see. I'm a sucker for a good mini-series. Roots, Roots, the Next Generations, Lonesome Dove (hence the username, LOL!!) Centennial, Texas and some others I'm sure I've forgotten to name. I love the historical aspect of those movies. Gone With the Wind is my all time favorite and Notting Hill, Titanic. As far as thriller-suspense, Misery, Deloris Claborne, The Talented Mr. Ripley. I love John Grisham movies as I'm an avid reader of his novels. And, last but not least, my favorite comedy is the Birdcage with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane. Nathan Lane is a hoot I think.
If we're going with 'know all the words', erm probably be Rocky Horror Show (plus all the songs, and it's even possible I may have been know to have to teach the timewarp as well...), but closing in fast is probably Dune and Miss Congeniality.
I have a few favorite movies My Big Fat Greek Wedding ,A Knights Tale,Something Got to Give,Only The Lonely (John Candy very funny man ),Monty Python movies ,Rear Window , Hell Rasier and Fried Green Tomatoes.
