Yes, matter of fact, I recently rented some movies!!!!

"Under the Tuscan Sun" was very, very good.

"Secondhand Lions" was very, very good.

"50 First Dates" was very, very good.

"The Missing" was okay, good, but the bad indian guy was a witch who performed bad spells, it was kind of a dark drama.

Have you seen, "Ever After", "The Wedding Singer", "Fried Green Tomatoes", "Signs", "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", "Shakespeare in Love", "Stigmata".........all very good.

Ahhhhhh...one of my favorite subjects. I actually went to school for production and watch WAY too many movies!

Here are some of my favs!

Velvet Goldmine
Lolita
Any Hitchcock film
Heathers
Pulp Fiction
The Commitments
Breakfast at Tiffiny's
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
The Color Purple
The Full Monty
What Dreams May Come
Any Monty Python
Like Water for Chocolate

This is just a partial list! I know that some of these films may not have been seen by many people but others are old standbys.

Anyone care to share?

Nephthys,
50 First Dates was cute. I like Drew Barrymore, she seems very sweet. Anyone remember her in E.T.? She was SO cute That was actually my favorite movie growing up.

Also, anyone know of Dakota Fanning? She plays the young girl in I Am Sam? I really like her, I have seen her in interviews and she is a very smart (and cute) young girl, very humble. One of my favorite actresses

Philbird,
I actually almost rented I Am Sam again today. Why does it make you feel embarressed? I guess it is not your cup of tea then, and I will leave it at that. Who is in The Money Pit? Sounds familiar...

Irish Eyes,
Monty Python, good choice

Does anyone like "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?" I was watching the behind the scenes stuff and I guess they actually stayed in a mental hospital, during filming. The movie really hit close to home because my mother is mentally ill. Having gone to visit her several times in various hospitals, I can say that the characters in the movie are convincingly like the people I witnessed in these hospitals. It is really scary, but I feel I can understand these people, mostly because of my mother. My mom has endured the whole nine yards (shock treatment, being strapped to the bed.) I would definitely add this to my list of favorites, very powerful film.

Money Pit? Histerical!!!
Tom Hanks and Shelly Long.
I really should have mentioned The Color Purple. It's another I own.
Plus, a gazillion war flicks, J.F.K., Nixon, Patten...
It may be sick to say... but I am drawn to movies about the Holocaust, I think they are a good reminder of how much we have to be greatful for.

Fifty First Dates and Thirteen Going On Thirty. I must like movies with numbers in the title.

Philbird, it's not sick. You are absolutely right, we constantly need to be reminded of that which we are thankful for

Randall, I shall have to see 13 going on 30. I have not heard much about it, but I think I would like it.

The last new movie I saw was Matchstick Men. It was very good, as movies starring Nicholas Cage usually are. It made me laugh, and it caught me off-guard.

My all-time favorites:

The Beach
A Clockwork Orange
The Crow
Cruel Intentions
The Dark Crystal
Frank Herbert's Dune (made-for-cable)
Ferris Beuller's Day Off
Graffiti Bridge
Groundhog Day
In the Mouth of Madness
Labyrinth
The Last Samurai
Lilo & Stitch
The Lord of the Rings (trilogy)
The Matrix (trilogy)
Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit (made-for-cable)
Ordinary Decent Criminal
Powder
The Professional (originally "Leon")
Pulp Fiction
The Ring
Tombstone
The Truman Show
The Usual Suspects
Vanilla Sky
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
The Wizard of Oz
and all five of Bruce Lee's movies.

Sorry, I know I overdid it, but it's out of respect for these films. It seemed... unfair... to leave any of them out!

The Butterfly Effect was very, very good.

50 First Dates was cute and touching.

Barbershop 2 was OK too.

Paycheck was a pretty good action film..neat premise.

DO NOT RENT Girls Will Be Girls! It is a huge waste of cash and time...what a stinkeroo!

Hey Stacy )dorkus),

Last movie I rented was Cold Mountain. I saw it at the theatre and reallly liked it.

I told you in another thread to rent Rushmore. Judging by your sense of humor I think you'd love it!! It's my favorite movie. Office Space is second. I love it when they beat up the fax machine. And Jennifer Aniston is me in that movie, as the angry waitress.

Bill Murray is so good in Rushmore. I love him anyway. It's really dry humor.
Watch it!! Great soundtrack too.


26

Oh! I also saw .....what's the name of the movie.....uh.....Jim Carrey....that girl from Titanic......Sunshine of my Happiness.....Infinite Happiness....No!....I forget. Maybe it was mentioned here -- have to look.

I didn't know they made a movie out of 'Lolita'. Or maybe it doesn't have any connection with the book.

Hmm, I like movies that mess with your mind a bit, you know? Make you think differently and see things in different POVs. Can't really think of any off the top of my head- I don't actually see too many movies- but one of my favorite movies is Girl, Interrupted.

I just watched "The Gift" on dvd. Cate Blanchett is in it and it's just a great great movie. I posted about it in my journal and every response I got about it was positive. Casting is great, suspense is great, story is great... and I sniffled a lot at the end.

Thanks for reminding me of Office Space, 26. I had forgotten about it!

I've seen the Big Lebowski more times than any human should have to watch any movie, but I still think it's a good flick.

And how could I forget Fight Club!??!?!?
