The Trip

Because it's different and brilliant.

3 hrs of my life I can never get back, because Rose wouldn't scoot her fat ass over on the plank so Jack could float, too. Or hell, they could have taken turns on it.

Whoa!

I've heard people turned off over the ad nauseum radio playing of Celine Dion "My Heart will go On"...never this.

My take is that James Cameron allowed her to lay on the door alone because with 2 people on it, it would have sunk for sure and Jack Dawson may have been poor but he WAS a gentleman.

Guinness -- Have you seen the Oklahoma with Hugh Jackman? Oh lordy.

I have never been able to watch any other version or see this as play EXCEPT for the Gordon Macrae/Shirley Jones movie.

Why? Because my mother FELL IN LOVE with Macrae in this movie and "Carousel". Back in the fifties, when you went to see a movie at certain theatres they had what they call "dish night." My mother collected a WHOLE dishset from seeing this movie, Carousel and other Macrae musicals at a theater on the South Side of Chicago.

In the 80's when VCR's came out, this movie was one of the first to get taped, then bought. Let me tell you just HOW MANY TIMES SHE WOULD MAKE US WATCH THIS!! I know the WHOLE dialogue and songs by heart!

"Oh what a beatiful MORNING. Oh what a beautiful day. I gotta good feeling EVERYTHING's goin' my way."

I gotta kinda agree with my mom: his baritone voice was velvet smooth and handsomly rich. Shame he never had much of career after.

'How Green Was My Valley'-I cry every single time I see it

I have SO wanted to see this. Maybe it's time to break down and see if I can find a copy...

Titanic is on my list of most hated movies ever.

I fall into this camp. I just wish the iceberg would have come floating by about 2.5 hours earlier

Guinness, please PLEASE see the Hugh Jackman version. No offense to the earlier one, but you must be open to the new as well!

asurvivor, why am I not surprised that loving The Trip and hating Titanic go together?

Actually thinking of Leo...I truly love the Romeo + Juliet from Baz Luhrmann.


Sit. Feast on your life.

Ordinary People---such intensity, all just dealing with a family's relationships.....really really loved it.


Point Break----for Keanu, surfing, the beach, Patrick Swayze...but mostly for Keanu.

ahh Sorry for my intensity on the "Titanic" hatred..


I meant "fat ass" in a sarcastic way--Kate Winslet is one of my favorite actresses and I love, love, love her body.

Really Hollywood or ANYONE shouldn't have capitalized on the tragedy of these people.

It is just that the 1997 version REALLY gave you a birdseye view of what it was like to be a passenger which is why I liked it. I have always liked history. I am sure if ALL of those passengers on that ship knew about the marketing of their tragedy, they's be haunting James Cameron and everyone trying to make a buck off of reliving it.

Guinness, please PLEASE see the Hugh Jackman version.

Hugh Jackman is one piece of handsome man....don't get me wrong. I am just desensitized to only Gordon MacRae as Curly. It just is what it is. That is my upbringing for you.

I like Jackman in a lot of other stuff.

I think I must be the only person ever to be bored comatose by the Shawshank Redemption. And I love character driven dramas but it was so dry and slow and bland and drawn out I just can't see what there is to like about it.

I love:
Godfather I and II
Usual Suspects
Gone with the Wind (always!)
The Departed
Steel Magnolias

Labyrinth, with David Bowie. I love it solo much, the ending is such a feel-good ending (my eyes still well up with tears when Hoggle asks "Well, why didn't you say so?!").

Also, the music. I have the soundtrack, and listen to it all of the time.

Finally, David Bowie in tights. Even my 4 year old says "He is sooooo handsome."

Need I say more?

Wizard of Oz. I own it on DVD and will watch it every time it comes on tv.

Most of my favorites are musicals or have a good soundtrack. Grease, Hairspray, etc.

Love Shawshank Redemption, though I have to do something else when Andy is being mistreated.

Movie that was disturbing and typically not something I would like, but was captivating was Mystic River. Not normally a Sean Penn fan, but loved that movie.

ETA the Fugitive with Harrison Ford.

Pretty much anything with Tommy Lee Jones or Denzel Washington

I'm not a big movie person, but some of my favorites:

Gone With the Wind - Most fav of all time. I have watched it at least 5 times, and could watch it 5 more.

Pulp Fiction - Normally, violence in movies has me hiding my head, but this movie was just so COOL with the end of the movie in the middle. I still think it's Tarantino's finest.

Shawshank Redemption - love this movie. Never saw the end coming. Probably not one I would watch again because I know how it ends.

Sling Blade - uh huh.

The Life of David Gale - LOVE this movie because I love Kevin Spacey. Also, the end was both tragic and surprising.

Too trusting, I watch Shawshank again and again because I know how it ends. The first time i almost did not make it through the movie, i hate to watch people mistreating others.
Now, knowing how it ends, I can endure and the end makes me so happy.

My five desert island movies:

1) Cannery Row. Nick Nolte and Debra Winger. Can't number the times I've seen it. Perfection in character acting.

2) O Brother Where Art Thou. Ulysses redux. Amazing writing, acting and especially MUSIC.

3) The Godfather. The first one. And the second one. Not the third one. (I get to count them as one. My island, my rules!)

4) Star Wars IV. A New Hope. The one where Han shot first. Not the remake. The Wizard of Oz could also go in this slot but it would be one or the other. Probably Star Wars.

5) A musical which I cannot choose right now. Something along the lines of Hello Dolly, Showboat, Brigadoon, Let's Make Love, An American in Paris. Singing, dancing, costumes, fantasy.

Anybody ever see the movie "What a Way to Go?" with Shirley Maclaine?

This movie is FREAKING FUNNY as a dark comedy. Holy crap...it is 50 years old!

This movie has been shown on cable this week. Haven't seen it in a long time.

It is about Maclaine pursuit of a simple life and really love. Every husband she has somehow they end up dead trying to provide for her and she just ends up millions rich.

Husbands:
1. Dick Van Dyke
2. Paul Newman
3. Robert Mitchum
4. Gene Kelly
5. Dean Martin.

This is simply a hilarious dark comedy.

I can't believe 3 of my favorites have not made this list!
American Beauty---which I seem to love more evry time I see it
Goodfellas, which I loved and still do, but the violence gets to me now, and it's hard to watch
The Abyss, because I love most any story that takes place in the water, and that one was so cool

Also agree with Shawshank, Stand by me, Gone w/ the wind...

And, another one I did not see mentioned: 50 first dates, which makes me cry big fat tears every time I see it. I can't keep it together when it gets to the end. It's a comedy, but the sentiment is so sweet.

Well, I scanned these lists quickly, but if the above mentioned movies were already listed, i apologize
