    Wife just reminded me that I went to see The Green Berets and The Bridge on the River Kwai...I had political reasons and old memories to rehash. She also said I took girls to see the picture about a family gettig shipwrecked on an island...I think I dozed through it.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    I am listing movies I think are really good, but not necessarily the "best movies of all time." That's too hard. [​IMG]

    I saw "Slumdog Millionaire" and thought that was good. The guy who plays the host of the Who Wants to Be A Millionaire show in India is superb. Worth seeing the show just to see him.

    Also, "Night Listener."

    Anne of Green Gables
    Anne of Avonlea (I don't like the third one at all)
    White Christmas
    Holiday Inn
    Greek Wedding
    Shrek 1
    Rocky series (not the most recent one)
    Evie
    Sound of Music
    Cinderfella
    Little Women (the one from the 40s)

    These are all favorites but I couldn't really tell you what I thought was the best of all time. I prefer fluffly black and whites.

    I haven't seen enough movies to say. My favorites:

    Casablanca
    Strangers on a Train
    The Fugitive

    For comedy, any Airplane movie and the 1975 Pink Panther movie, whose name escapes me.

    Hitchcock's stuff freaks me out, but I watch it anyway.

    I love anything by Hitchcock, except The Birds. Now that was a stupid movie!

    I saw The Birds as a little kid, and still get the willies when the blackbirds show up (no offense to our own Blackbird on the BB - I don't get the willies when he shows up - well, most of the time anyway).

    Dawn of the Dead (original)
    Blast from the Past
    Chariots of Fire
    Beauty and the Beast (best animated)
    What About Bob?
    Young Frankenstein
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    The Postman
    October Sky
    Sleepless in Seattle
    The Shop Around the Corner
    You've Got Mail
    Let It Ride

    I liked The Birds also, as well as The Bourne Identity (though the book was much better) and just about any movie made before 1955. I liked almost every movie listed on this page.
