Simply write down your last favorite 10-20 movies. When one or more people have a match a conversation will be encouraged to ensue regarding but not limited to the movie.

I will be glad to accept suggestion about the club but please remember it is my idea and I am the boss.

I recently watched Dances with Wolves.
I'm sorry I waited so long to do so, great movie.
Should be on my list.
Goodfellas is another one.
I'm sure others are like this, but even though I own it and can watch it whenever I want, uncut, I tend to overlook it (and other movies), but when I flip channels and find it on, I end up watching it.

I thought Cher did a great job in Mask, and Eric Stoltz is one of my favorite actors.
Add it to my list.

I liked Pulp and Coo-coos nest, could not follow English Patient but should try again.

I have heard The Best of Youth is good and The Lives of Others goes on List with Il Postino.

How can I forget Forrest Gump....

My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."

"Yes. Well, I-I don't know. Sometimes it would stop raining long enough for the stars to comeout... and then it was nice. It was like just before the sun goes to bed down on the bayou. There was always a million sparkles on the water... like that mountainlake. It was so clear, Jenny, it looked likethere were two skies one on top of the other. And then in the desert, when the sun comes up, I couldn't tell where heaven stopped and the earth began. It's so beautiful."


I learned so much with this movie.....

Thank you so much, I read the article. Yes, this is the movie....the scenes are out of this world.
This must go on the list.

The other day I watched "Of mice and men" , it was sad, he killed his own brother ?
Last night I watched "A few good men", Jack says, "You want the truth.....you can't handle the truth".
Marlon Brando played in Sayanara the other night as well, he always had this heavy accent as if he had mashed potatoes in his mouth....as well as the Godfather....more mashed potatoes. But he can act.

Now Morgan Freeman in Shawshank did his best acting in that drama.

Yes, the cinematography is excellent.

Also, he and Jack are awesome in The Bucket List.
My list is growing.

To be honest I was not crazy about Bucket List but Shawshank was great.

Green mile was alot of fun and I really liked Hopkins in The World Fastest Indian.

Manda Bala from Brazil was very interesting.

Thanks for contributing to the club. It is now a collective with all members equal in all respects.

Thanks for mentioning Mice and Men, I remember that from 40 years back and want to see again.

Slingblade was another good one.

Naked gun was hilarious and I enjoy Mr. Bean too.
post #15 of 29
If you have not seen "Death at a funeral"....well I watched it , that was funny too. There are some scenes where the laughing hurt.

I have a few more....what are your opinions ?

The great Escape
Gladiator
Unforgiven
Good will Hunting
Ben Hur
Spartacus
Casino Royale
The Usual Suspect (the only movie that kept me guessing who did it right to the end)
Master and Commander

What do you think ?

I liked The Great Escape and I think I had Good Will Hunting mixed up with the Shawshank redemption. Which movie has the warden popping himself in the end?
post #17 of 29

The Great Escape is, well, great.
Gladiator is another good movie. I made a point of watching it once we got the 40" lcd.
Unforgiven is a great Eastwood movie, but I still like The Outlaw Josie Wales the best, so wedge it into my list.
Master and Commander was good, but I don't think I'd add it to my personal favorites.

Morph to actors/actresses

Perhaps my friends would tolerate a little talk about favorite actors too.

Russel Crowe is one of mine and I like him in 4:10 to Yuma.

Morgan Freeman is very good also but I think it cheapens his image when he appears in movies that are not that good.

Willem DeFoe is good too.
post #21 of 29
That would go for pretty much anyone who has built up an image you admire, no?

I was actually just thinking of The Bronx Tale.
Great movie.
Love DeNiro.
Which brings me to: How could I forget Taxi Driver?

Then there's The Driver with Bruce Dern and Ryan O'Neal.

Speaking of Unforgiven (remember, we were :rolleyes: ), I love Gene Hackman.
He was great with Willem Dafoe in Mississipi Burning.
Just watched him again in The French Connection and Hoosiers.
Didn't care for him so much as Lex Luthor though, lol.

Ahhh, I was hoping The bronx Tale would be remembered. DeNiro is an interesting actor.
There are some pretty good movies with Michael Douglas and Sean Connery ....now they has come out with a few good ones too.
Taxi Driver.....yes, Jodie Foster and the Cybil Sheppard ....that one ?
The movie with Ryan O'neal, wans't that about a bad cop ?

"Speaking of Unforgiven (remember, we were :rolleyes: ), I love Gene Hackman." Sure do.
The french Connection was pretty good, I must say.
Scent of a woman with Al Pacino ?
I have to say that I really enjoyed "Dead Poet's Society". How did you like these ones ?
And where it the boss ?

A small list:

Snatch
Lock,Stock and two smoking barrells...both by Guy Ritchie, convoluted, funny british underworld movies. Jason Statham got his start here before he pushed out a buncha crap.

The Black Fox, Inspector General, The Court Jester and White Christmas .... noone else gets me all nostalgic about my youth like Danny Kaye. singer, dancer and comedian this man is a freaking legend. He is the only reason I can listen to musicals at all.


The Evil Dead series ... I love Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi is a great director.


I have more love and like but here are a few I think are overated:

Pulp Fiction: sometimes Quentin Tarantino just doesn't get it right and you end up watching a buncha scenes instead of a movie. i feel this happened here and with Inglorious Basterds.

Dances with Wolves: I really wanted to like this movie when it came out, Last of the Mohicans (great film) was just out and this looked to be in the same vein. couldn't stay awake, fell asleep four times trying to watch this flick, twice in the middle of the day.

well that should be enough for now..more later

Forgot about the Guy Ritchie movies.
Snatch is incredible.
I watched it with the Pikey subtitles so I could more easily understand what Brad Pitt's character was saying.
At one point he rattles off a long line of something and the subtitle reads "???".
Even they couldn't figure out what he said. :lol:
