Oh fun!

In no order... and it's not really a top 10. I'm not insifghtful enough to be that accurate. Rather, this is a top 10 right now. I really only have a top 4, the rest are fluid.

1. Caddyshack
2. Alien
3. The Natural
4. Monty Python And The Holy Grail (Ni!)
5. The Iron Giant
6. Any of the Star Wars movies- mainly 4,5, and 3. And Blue Harvest is pretty freakin' funny....
7. Unforgiven
8. Silverado
9. Gladiator
10. That Thing You Do

It could be one of many. I suspect you mean Boccherini La Musica Notturna Delle Strase de Madrid (you would need to check my spelling on that) but it could also be Motzart No 3 Violin concerto (its the 3rd movement in the film) or Bach Prelude from the Unaccompanied Cello Suite No. 1 or even corelli Adagio from Concerto Grosso . Lucky Jack and the Doctor play together several times in the film, and some of the back ground music may be haunting you too. Suggest you try those on iTunes. Go for the boccherini first - in the film it is the one where Jack and the Doctor are in the captains cabin with the doctor plucking his cello and the captain playing his violin like a guitar (Is that the scene you are thinking of)



There are two CDs out of music mentioned in the Aubrey/Maturin books as being played by the two (or listened to).

http://www.amazon.co...00366836&sr=1-2
http://www.amazon.co...00366881&sr=1-1

The music is played as if by two (talented) players, so it sounds a bit sparse to modern ears.

For my list:

1) M. Hulot's Holiday (Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot) (1953) Jaques Tati - Greatest movie, ever. Almost completely without dialogue. You know every one of these characters.


2)...


3)...


Nothing else even close, although I will give a nod to many of the Akiro Kurosawa movies like "The Seven Samurai", "Ran", "Throne of Blood", etc.

Love Mr. Hulot's Holiday. Traffic was fun too, but not as charming.

A few others I really like that are off the beaten path:
-Local Hero (my perennial best movie of all time)
-Monty Python's Meaning of Life (brutally funny)
-Philadelphia Story
-A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy (Woody Allen)
-Metropolitan (particularly if you grew up in Manhattan, as I did, in the late '70s through '80s, but funny for all)
-Shadowlands (Anthony Hopkins as C.S. Lewis)
-The BBC Brideshead Revisited series - http://www.amazon.co...00388809&sr=1-1

and while we are on TV, be sure to get the complete "Bit of Fry and Laurie"
http://www.amazon.co...n/dp/B000P0J0G0

and Eddie Izzard's live performances, particularly "Dress to Kill"
http://www.amazon.co...00388787&sr=1-1


some awesome Japanese films:
-Yojimbo
-Ran (kurosawa's King Lear - even if just for the visuals)
-Departures (recent: probably still in a theater somewhere)
When I was young, my bologna had a first name. Now my bodywash has an "Objective".

It took awhile to pare the list down to the following 17. I just can't sacrifice anymore!
In the order I watched the movies, because I really can't decide on the order I like them in:

The Italian Job - the original with Michael Caine. Began my love-affair with cars :blue-love:
You Only Live Twice - my father is a HUGE Bond fan!! Fond memories of being young, watching this one with dad.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - the Tim Burton version was more true to the book, but this is my favorite :kid_loved:
Albert Finney's Scrooge
The man with the Golden Gun
Raiders of the Lost Ark - my mind still bristles with day-dream ideas after watching this film.
Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back - began my real love for sci-fi movies, even though I saw Star Wars first (I was too young to appreciate it)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail - I can recite this entire movie, word-for-word :kid_loved: Started my love for British humor.
Aliens - my heart still pounds when I watch this movie!! Amazing tension!
The Good The Bad and The Ugly - helped me realize the good aren't always so good, the bad are always bad, and most people are right in the middle.
High Planes Drifter - greatest revenge movie ever.
The Pink Panther Strikes Again - Peter Sellers is a genius! This movie makes me laugh out loud to this day :kid_loved:
I'm Gonna Git You Sucka
Clue
Ferris Bueller's Day Off - began my love-affair with the Ferrari. And Mia Sara :) I was 10!
The Princess Bride
The Game - the ending threw me for a loop! Like no other movie ever has!


:)

Have Rev, Will Travel
