What are your favorite Movies???
« on: September 11, 2006, 10:45:28 PM »
I was wondering what you guys and gals like in movies!  I'm a big lover of music and movies.  I like just about everything, but there are some faves that I watch OVER and over.  Those are the ones I want to hear about. You know, the ones where you know all the lines of dialog, and you sit down with a glass of wine by yourself and watch and it makes all the drama that we deal with fade away.  I probably have about hundred like that, but I'll start with a few that I'm thinking about right now.

Steel Magnolias
Hedwig and the Angry Inch
The Women
Blazing Saddles
Fried Green Tomatoes
Big Fish
Sordid Lives
Nine to Five
Moulin Rouge
Whatever Happened to Baby Jane

.....and hundres more.....LOL

Oh Matty....naughty Aussie boiiiiiii.  I have my faves in that genre...but that's not for publication...LOL.  And a big fat thumb up to Rent (we'll include  Broadway shows too).  Ah yes, I think most of us remember the song Light My Candle from Rent.  It holds a very special place in heart for someone that used to play it for me who is no longer here....good times.  Makes me smile every time I hear it!

Sixteen Candles - yes, forgot about that one.....  "I've been felt up by my grandmother!"   LOL

Some of my favorites are:

Best in Show - "I went to one of those obedience places once... it was all going well until they spilled hot candle wax on my private parts."

Lord of the Rings Trilogy - "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future."

Aliens -  "Get Away from her, you BITCH!"

Muriel's Wedding -  "Oh Muriel, you're terrible"

Clueless -  Cher on staying a virgin:  "You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet."

The Incredibles - "Supermodels. Heh! Nothing super about them... spoiled, stupid little stick figures with poofy lips who think only about themselves."

A Room with a View - That's the best introduction I've ever heard. "How do you do. Come and have a bathe."

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow - "Alert the amphibious squadron!"

The Matrix - "There is no spoon"

Muriel's Wedding -  "Oh Muriel, you're terrible"

Ok, now it's C-List celebrity name dropping time. I went to university with the fat chick who played that character in Muriel's Wedding. Gabby Millgate was her name. Humourless moll she was.

I have a different sort of response...since I'm into the older films.  So I doubt these are known by most on here.

Anyway...top five in ascending order:
5.  Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf  (1966) 
4.  Hud  (1963)
3.  Caged  (1950)
2.  A Raisin in the Sun  (1961)
1.  I Want to Live!  (1958)

They sure don't make 'em like they used to...but of course that's just my opinion.

As in books, I tend to go see films because they are made by authors.

La dolce vita -  I vitteloni - Il bidone : Federico Fellini

The Killing - Paths of Glory: Stanley Kubrick

Jour de fête - playtime: Jacques Tati

Festen: Thomas Vinterberg

Dont look now - Bad Timming : Nicholas Roeg

Badlands - Days of heaven: Terrence Malick

Dodes Kaden - Rashomon: Akira Kurosawa

Hana Bi: Takeshi Kitano

The Hole - What time is it over there? : Tsai Ming Liang

Caro diario -Domani accadrà : Nani Moretti

M le maudit - Metropolis: Fritz Lang

and stuff by Monicelli, Scola, Antonioni, Chabrol, Hou Hsiao Hsien, Wong Kar Wai

there is so little time... :(

I just watched Dancer in the Dark again just last night.  I cried again, to me it's still very powerful: a single woman fighting for her belief, her love fo her son.  I do the same thing she does in the movie, that i'd leave just before a singler sings her last song in a concert... that way, it'd never end in my mind.

I also like classics like BenHur, Cleo, My Fair Lady  etc.

Wow, we all have great taste in movies!  I see some that I love and have not seen in a while.  All About Eve, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, etc.  And a surprise from Carousel (the man not the movie) that listed The Turning Point! I got to meet Anne Bancroft and Shirley MacLaine when that movie was released in the 70's..... which kinda dates me I guess.  They did a benefit in Oklahoma City while promoting the movie...so of course my little gay teenage self was all over that!   hahahaha
