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)
1 - Top Comedy - BEST IN SHOW - About a dog show. The actors improv at least 90% of this movie, and the casting is stellar. Definitely a laugh out loud comedy for me.
2 - Top Sci Fi - Star Wars - I am a devoted fan so I do accept all the movies, even the ones done in 90s and 00s and hopefully the new ones will make up for them. But I will religiously love the original movies forever!
3 - Top Guilty Pleasure Film - Showgirls - And not because of all the flesh but because the acting is so bad its so so so so good, and if you ever want to laugh maniacally...watch this movie, the pool scene is ridiculous.
4 - The truth is I love movies...its more about what movies I am NOT into --- I am not into hardcore slasher movies but love a good thriller and expect a bit of gore now and then. My tastes have changed as well, I am not overly into big budget movies with overly done CGI...I am sure it takes many hours to do all that CGI work but the first Lord of The Rings movies compared to the latest ones, with so much more CGI and a lot less real-action cast i.e. Uruk hai are mostly CGI in latest movies, just ruined it for me!.
5 - Top Anime Movie - any of the "Bleach" movies - Great anime franchise. Awesome sci fi and sorcery blend. Story line is easy to follow and the plot twists are sublime.
Thanks for posting this thread!
People might think im nuts but i loved the harry potter movies. I was sad when the last one finished, i just wanted the story to go on and on.
While watching them i felt i was in that world and i liked it more than this one. If i could have stepped through the screen into hogwarts i would. Pity its all make believe.
