Your Top Ten Favourite Movies?
Wolf fang, passengers, I am number 4, braveheart, pride and prejudice the long bbc one, guardians of the galaxy, limitless, thor, Lord of the rings, the hobbit, and many others...
Magnum - I slept with the light on for a couple of weeks after watching the ring when I was a teenager, it's the only film I've seen that completely freaked me out and disturbed me
I think Hopkins is a wonderful actor. I thought he was fantastic in The Elephant Man.
I'll check out Instinct and The Human Stain.
@Magnum - yeah The Ring creeped me out. I first saw it at the cinema in Lincolnshire, visiting friends. I was 23 and living in southern England at the time. I remember driving back down south on the A1 - I was paranoid that I was going to have an accident - all because of watching that film!
Looking back, it was pretty good.
Not ten but some off the top of my head favourites:
The Vanishing ( Dutch original 1988 of the Hollywood remake)
Good Will Hunting
From Here to EternityTrue Romance
Hell in the pacific
Women on the edge of a nervous breakdown (any Pedro Almodovah)
Butch Cassidy and the sundance kid
Those magnificent men in their flying machines
Into The Wild
I said earlier in this thread I was interested in watching The Serpent and the Rainbow so last Sunday I bought it on ebay. I also ordered Red Eye.
Well, they both came through the post today. The Serpent and the Rainbow was brand new and cost only £3.00. I thought the movie was ok, pretty good.
Red Eye was pre-owned, in good condition and cost only £1.90. And it's a pretty damn good suspenseful film. Cillian Murphy plays the bad guy excellently.
The work of Wes Craven, one of my favourite directors, can honestly be described as a mixed bag but I think Red Eye deserves to be up there with his best work such as A Nightmare on Elm Street, New Nightmare and Scream.
horror films--they just make me laugh. just special effects.
fave all time film--? From Russia with Love--watched it again on tv last week. Best Bond film ever. first Bond film i saw--over 50 years ago.
Ten that come to mind off the cuff ,
One Flew Over The Cuckoos nest
Last Of The Mohicans
Planet Of The Apes (Chuch Heston)
True Grit (Jeff Bridges)
Tombstone ( Kurt Russell)
Ordinary people ( Mary T Moore was sensational in this movie)
Fiddler On The Roof
OK so that`s 12 off the top of my head
