message 5: by Holli (new)

Holli I loved Martian Child...great movie!! Jamie your movie list is quite an indie list. I like that..............you've got some really good ones on there.

Jennifer I would watch the movie of your life for sure!! I hope that comes to fruition for you.....

My top 3 movies are : Pulp Fiction, Silence of the Lambs, Seven


Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner) (perpetualpageturner) | 369 comments I LOVE Pulp Fiction!!
man..i just have too many movies that I like.
Holli..my boyfriend HATES basically all the movies that I like..he thinks I have weird tastes. I just never really find myself feeliing particularly moved by alot of big movies out there. I mean..there are definitely some that I love..but I prefer to watch movies that are kind of deep and really move me in some way.




message 7: by Emily (new)

Emily (ejfalke) | 576 comments My favorites are:
Casablanca (could quote the entire thing)
Signs
Miracle
You've Got Mail/Must Love Dogs*
The American President
Searching for Bobbie Fisher

*Must Love Dogs is slowly taking the place of You've Got Mail when I need a very sweet, feel-good romantic comedy to pick me up on a bad day.

Brittany, Nacho Libre and Napoleon Dynamite = heeeeee!


message 8: by Holli (new)

Holli Pulp Fiction is my ultimate.....I have alot of movies I like but those 3 are my supreme faves with Pulp Fiction smack dab at the top.

I like deep meaningful movies too Jamie!! Have you ever seen Evening? Or Waitress?


message 9: by Brittany (new)

Brittany (missbrittany) | 336 comments I LOVED Waitress. DH hated it. I thought it was faulous. Oh, and Enough with JLopez was good.


message 10: by Kristen (new)

Kristen (kristen120378) Where do I even begin:

Circle of Friends
Pearl Harbor - (yes I know I'm like the only one in the country that actually liked it!)
City of Angels
Michael
Ice Age (1 & 2)
Shrek (1,2 & 3)
And almost every football movie ever made (especially Rudy!).
Oh, and Sex in the City


message 11: by Robyn (new)

Robyn (roxy_nj) | 354 comments Holli - Silence of the Lambs? Seven? You've got quite the dark side there. Seven freaked me out so much I vowed never to watch it again!

Some of my faves:
Wizard of Oz
Mary Poppins
Some Like It Hot
The Philadelphia Story
ummmm...(whispering) Dirty Dancing

I know there's some 80's classics that I am totally missing but this list will have to do for the moment.


Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner) (perpetualpageturner) | 369 comments ooh Mary Poppins!! :)

i could list a million Disney movies!!


message 13: by Brittany (new)

Brittany (missbrittany) | 336 comments oh, no i liked Pearl Harbor!


message 14: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (jenniferstorm) | 14 comments Thanks Holli!!!

I cannot believe for a second that I forget SEX IN THE CITY my all time FAV!!! Pulp Fiction is good too.

Bobby was brilliant as well..the use of old footage merged with new was brilliant.


message 15: by Meg (last edited Oct 07, 2008 03:49PM) (new)

Meg (megvt) | 3069 comments I have given up watching movies with my boyfriend. He likes the dumb stupid ones, not me. I like indie, foreign, documentaries etc. Some big movies but not generally.

Just an FYI there is a movie group.


Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner) (perpetualpageturner) | 369 comments Meg..i am in the SAME exact boat as you. the dumber the movie..the more he likes it. I like things that actually make me think or require SOME thought to watch them.


message 17: by Holli (new)

Holli Oh I love my serial killer movies....and yes Roxy don't let the blond hair and innocent looking face fool ya. I am NOT sweet that's for sure!!! LOL I have more of the dark side in me than you'd think.

I also loved Pearl Harbor and Titanic for that matter. ALL 80's movies and of course Grease One and Two.

I loved the movie Street Kings that just came out not too long ago and I also have watched my fair share of Mary Poppins. That's how diverse I am with movies ;)
