Movies that you enjoy ...

Community Member

Hi all

As a result of a little posting between myself and Matty, I've decided to create this thread.  It's something that so many of us could contribute to ... and there's no right or wrong answer or suggestion ... there's no-one judging, but hopefully it will be just a little bit of a distraction for all us (even if for a short time).  And if anyone would like to give a little reason for the movie they suggest, then GO FOR IT.

Also, don't hold back at just one ... so post away and post often.

For starters, I have 3 movies that all begin with the letter S that I really enjoy (although one really begins with the letter T):

Sea Of Love (Al Pacino and the big funny guy, who I can't think of right now)

Sleepers (powerful movie - awful awful what happens in the first half, but the 2nd half is revenge, oh sweet revenge)

The Shawkshank Redemption (Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins - love it)

Cheers all

Hi Amy

Yes, I know the film with Clint Eastwood with the gold. Throughout that movie its like they tried to avoid the war entirely.

Hope you can find out what movie that was.

And you have to get "the legend of 1900"  a great movie.

One of my favourite movies is 'The Barbarian Invasions' And no, there are no large bearded men with swords in their hands and a bad attitude in it. It is a French movie and won an oscar for best foreign language movie.........It is about a terminally ill academic and the last weeks of his life. The humour is delicious and the rawness of his plight so utterly palpatable that it asks questions of which there is no answer..............His immenent death erodes all the pretentions which have constituted his life and he is left to die aware of the fact that he had never really lived..............Its not for everyone but the jouney of those final weeks is one we must all take in one form or another whether we wish it or not.

Thriller - Silence of the Lambs.

Romance - Dogfight, Notting Hill.

Comedy - Pirates of the Carribean, Buffalo 66, There's Something About Mary.

There are many more I like, too many to mention. My favourite recent movies are Whiplash, Dallas Buyer's Club, Warrior, Dan in Real Life.and 127 hours.

I just saw a New Zealand Movie that I loved.

It's very odd so I'm told. I thought it was very funny and dark.

What We Do In The Shadows.

It is a case of where do you start! Comedy, I can't go past Monty Python's Holy Grail - such a classic. I do enjoy the old Clint Eastwood westerns too! Silence if the Lambs is better than most horror movies! Recent movies - American Sniper was good, as well as A Walk Among Tombstones. I am also lucky I have kids because the Minion movie is coming up ....
