What are your favorite movies? Old, new, whatever! No limit to how many favorites you can have, but if you want to start with a list, that would be cool.

Or not. ;-)

Okay, these are TOTALLY off the top of my head. If I gave it serious thought, the list would probably look much different.

A lot of these are movies that, if I happen across them on the dial, I leave them on. Some I own and have watched dozens of times. Others, I've seen once, and they've stayed with me.

East of Eden
Wizard of Oz
Barton Fink
Beautiful Thing
Jacob's Ladder
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Harlan County, U.S.A.
Fight Club
Jaws

...to start

A lot of common threads in those movies, Terri.

Phenomena is one I'd forgotten about...I'll have to watch that again someday!

Serpico...I love that movie.

for starters

the original Star Wars trilogy. (My daughter thinks Phantom Menace is a better movie, but not having lived pre-Star Wars, she has NO idea of the impact it had...!)

City of Angels

Creator (it's set in what is now my home town)

Aladdin (the only Disney that didn't make me want to scream by the fifth time I saw it. Who knew that Robin Williams could sing?)

The Breakfast Club

George of the Jungle (for sheer silliness, it can't be beat)

Phenomenon

Michael (no, I'm not all that fond in general of John Travolta, just those 2 movies)

Powder


The list of things I watch if I happen to catch them on TV is just too enormous to list!

Ok... off the top of my head I would have to say:

Braveheart
Gone With The Wind
Terms Of Endearment
The Original Star Wars Trilogy
Steel Magnolias
Johnny Dangerously
The 1st Lethal Weapon
Philadelphia
The James Bond Movies

These are movies that made an impact(one way or another ) on me... I am not necessarily suggesting you run out and rent Johnny Dangerously

I have to add "Requiem for a Dream" to my list after seeing it this past weekend, although it is definitely not for everyone.

Okay, I have to credit this folder and my friends who post here for turning me on to two new (to me) movies this weekend.<p>
{{{{{Les}}}}} Thanks for recommending "Requeim for a Dream." You're right, it's not for everyone, but I watched it yesterday, and it was so powerful it gave me goosebumps. I taped it, so I'll definitely watch it again.<p>
{{{{{Kathe}}}}} After seeing "Powder" on your list, I watched it when it came on cable today, and wow, what a movie! Thanks for reminding me about that one. I had originally intended to see it when it came out, and had forgotten about it until I read it on your list.
