Movies that you enjoy ...
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)
I agree Neil, Shawshank Redemption is an awesome movie!
These other movies are based more on romance (yes, I am a female):
1. The Holiday
2. Love Actually
3. Ten Things I Hate About You
4. The Spectacular Now
These movies are not overly romantic, but still feature romantic elements:
Dan In Real Life (hilarious and uplifting, in my opinion)
The Hunger Games
Hi Amy ( hope that's ok) ,
Yes , it's probably been over 10 years for me since i've watched it, back in the VCR days , but it has stayed with me. Love actually / About a boy , agree I liked them too. Fan of Alan Rickman ,Emma Thomson and Toni Collette!
Hope you enjoy it again.
Absolutely agree with you Tony about Clint Eastwood and the Good, the Bad and the Ugly trilogy. Must be an age thing.
Big fan of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. It always irritates me that films change the book plot, especially when they add actions not already in the book, but despite this really enjoyed these films.
Not keen on horror films but I did enjoy the Kill Bill trilogy. Very bloody but so unlikely it was almost funny.
Enjoyed Toni Collette in Muriel's Wedding. Long ago in a galaxy far away I enjoyed The Man From UNCLE films and TV series. Not the most amazing films but great in their day.
