Good Morning DJ.......so many to choose from, but here are a few for starters:Moonstruck -- I'm Italian and this is my family, I swear.The entire Indiana Jones series.Bettlejuice -- okay, I know it's a wierd choice but I just think it's hilarious.Jane Eyre -- the original one with Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine (how can you feel bad about anything in your own life after everything poor Jane goes through?)Sense & Sensibility -- the recent one with Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Hugh Grant, and (my personal fave) Alan Rickman. Just brilliant.

Wow - I absolutely love so many movies! My current all-time fave is :The Shawshank Redemption" with Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. It's an absolutely wonderful movie, and I highly recommend it.------------------"We can't become what we need to be by remaining what we are."-----Oprah WinfreyMissycat

DJ - funny thing, realy, truly, "I" was going to ask this very question!! Great minds think alike!I have a few (I'm a real movie nut):Gone With the WindThe FugitiveBlown AwayStarman I could go on & on - just about anything with Harrison Ford, Jeff Bridges & Tommy Lee Jones in it! (as you might have noticed from the last 3)on the humorous side:Nine Months - just about DIED laughing!Kindergarten CopMrs. Doubtfire - I like Robin Williams in that kind of movie, not the really stupid ones, like Good Morning Vietnam - I did NOT like that!Matilda - watched it with my daughter because she wanted to see it - it was really pretty good!And, MY ALLTIME FAVORITE made for TV series:Roots - the absolute best - I will ensure my daughter sees that one when she is a little older - just to see what horrible things were done to the black people - I want her to realize just how awful it is to be prejudised against others... slavery was an awful thing.And, while on the subject, I will also ensure she reads "The Diary of Anne Frank" - the best book I've ever read! Also, Stephen King books for pure entertainment...Anybody have a favorite book?

Missycat - I can't believe I forgot the Shawshank Redemption - I agree with you that was the best - and it was written by Stephen King - so have you seen it Anxious? I absolutely love Stephen King. Most of his books are way too corny on the screen but Shawshank Redemption and Stand By Me (based on his short story The Body) were absolutely fabulous.

Well, It's tough to say. My family owns a video store back in my home town, i've seen thousands of movies, I still see at least three a week, usually more like five but never less then three. I likes all the ones mentioned above, except the fried green tomatoes. The shawshank redemption was the best of those mentioned. I like the classics the wizard of OZ, Gone with the wind, Casablanca, sound of music, It's a wonderful life. And some really good actions Rambo, Appocolypse Now, Saving private Ryan, and Scarface.Emotional = Titanic, Shindlers list, Power of One, Amistad, and Somewhere in Time (Christopher Reeves)Comedy = Blazing saddles, Three Amigo's, Dumb and Dumber, Big trouble in Little China, Fletch, European Vacation (Look kids, big ben parliment).There are also some really good sleepers out there, like the Usual Suspects.Thanks for the topic, and anxious maybe you'll start another one about books.Wes------------------Only those who risk going too far, will ever know how far they can go.
