For top slot I can't decide between these two.
Hunt for Red October
Shawshank Redemption


Then in no particular order.
Warriors
Pulp Fiction
A Bridge Too Far
(this one is a "right of passage film for me". I took my dad to see this to take mind off things while my mum was in hospital having surgery)
The Blues Brothers
Blues Brothers 2000
(not so sure I like having a sequel in this list but the music is brilliant)
Field of Dreams
The Postman
Miracle of 34th Street


If you're talking kinky. It wouldn't be in my top ten, but I have to mention Beauty and the Beast and in particular the down the cleavage camera shots in the ballroom scene. Steady on Bob it's a drawing FFS.


Had a Bridge to far down myself Bob.Kellys Heros just above it.Its so hard deciding.

Do you remember one called The Wanderers[Dion theme tune,the shirellas,Ben E king,smokey Robinson,four seasons,Dylan,]had that also.AWSOME TRACKS in the film.Best part of the film,but swopped it for the warriors.

BRIAN...Stop with those negative waves

Wall-E was ok, but not as funny as I'd of hoped for my son's first theater experience.

Top Ten.... LOL
Cheech and Chong (Up in Smoke, Nice Dreams, Next Movie)
The Jay and Silent Bob Series
Rob Zombies 3 (House of a Thousand Corpses, Devils Rejects and Holloween)
Gladiator
League of Extrodinary Gentlmen
We Were Soldiers
Apocalypse
Lethal Weapon Series
Pay it Forward
Twister (sorry I was into storms at the time and flying in them and the soundtrack was perfect for those days.)
I'll stop here, I think this is 10 but there are too many others.

i have a page on my (still developing ) website on movies that move me--to laugh to cry to love...

so i picked out ten from that list,

*Life is beautiful (it is on the top of the list for a profound reason!, if you can't imagine how an italian comic makes love andlaughter come alive in a Nazi concentration camp)

*Solaris (i have only seen the 2002 remake)

*Children of heaven (http://www.cinemajidi.com/children/)

*Lady Chatterley (2006, directed by Pascale Ferran)

*Hotel Rwanda (i watched the movie, then read the book "LEFT TO TELL")

*the Matrix (ah, need i say more?)

*Riding Solo to the top of the world (the trailer at http://www.dirttrackproductions.com/)

*Water (2005, Deepa Mehta, also "Fire","Earth" )

*The Sea Inside (http://www.theseainside.com/)
*a Touch of Spice (2003, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0378897/)


these are some of the films i whole heartedly recommend....
if you share some of the same passion, pm me for your recommendation
love, as if you have never been hurt before.....

TBH,Ive not herd of most of them,but welcome to the forum and the darkside Litsong.A mix of all diffrent folks and strokes keeps it so intresting :) .

A touch of spice seems to ring a bell,i think i read it when in Hospital a long,long time ago.Would it be an old 50is/60ish Love story about a coulored guy and his Lover.
May be wrong or confused with a taste of Honey,,,,,

wada ya think

hey, what is a "cracking flick"?
about "a touch of spice" (in taiwan, the title is translated as "the republic of Spice")
i love the music/soundtrack, and the automsphere....
i watched it a couple of times ....


i love cooking, and i love using spices to bring a twist into the food that stimulate the taste buds...

the music in it has a texture that draws my attention when i first heard it, unforgettable ...

ps: when in school, i had dreamed of having a lover who tells the stories among stars to me.....(you've got to see the movie to know what i am talking about)
love, as if you have never been hurt before.....

So many movies, so little time...

You all have mentioned some of my faves, in no order...

Hunt for Red October--
Crimson Tide was great, also.
The Abyss--
The Princess Bride...years back, my "little sister" (not literally) recited the entire movie to me.... dramatically, so now, every time I watch it, I hear her (sort of) :kid_smartass: --
Toy Story--
Pirates of the Caribbean... then again, MOST of Johnny Depp's movies have been incredible.--
National Treasure--
My Cousin Vinny--
ok, how about Blazing Saddles or History of the World, Part I---

I'll leave it there, but I could go on and on and on.....
