    I have to agree with NaruNaruChan, Amelie is my number one movie too.

    TresHappy, I haven't thought of the movie Paper Moon in ages, but it's always been a fav of mine.

    I like too many movies to pick only 5. My list would be too long!

  • TresHappy

    Paper Moon is one of those wonderful movies to see on a rainy day. Great script, great acting, Tatum O'Neal deserved the Oscar, she was adorable as Addie. Ryan O'Neal was perfect as Moses Pray. Those Bible selling scenes at the front door are a classic. Best line out of that movie: She must have the bladder the size of a peanut!" Madelyn Kahn was great too. What a neat actress. I miss her. She died too young. I have a copy of this movie and slip it in the VCR every now and then. It's a great view...

  • Francois

    1. The Godfather Series
    2. The Star Wars Series (esp. 4-6)
    3. Gandhi
    4. Breaker Morant
    5. Blade Runner
    6. The Indiana Jones Series

    It's funny, I work at a store and whenever someone asks me to change a bill for them I think of that movie. I try to make sure they're not scamming me or trying to confuse me into giving them more money than their owed! LOL

    I used to love it when I was younger and that movie was on.I thought Tatem O'Neil was so cool.Hearing about the movie makes me want to go out and buy it now!

  • TresHappy

    Another scene in Paper Moon I adore - when Addie and Trixie Delight's maid Imogene scheme to break up Moses and Trixie by using the clerk at the hotel they were staying. That is classic fun that only director Peter Bogdanovich could do. There are so many scenes in this movie I absolutely chuckle at over and over, I just adore this movie! That's why it's on my top 5 list!
