Lord of the Rings for sure; nothing else ever kept me captivated for 3 x 3 hours!

and Monty Python of course Holy Grail and Life of Brian!

My favorite movie of all time is a Man for All Seasons with Paul Scofield. It's about Sir Thomas More and Henry VIII. Great movie.

For a more recent favorite, Walk The Line, about Johnny Cash.

I saw King Kong last December, and LOVED it. I loved it so much, in fact, that I bought the soundrack and ordered the movie. The animation of Kong and the dinosaurs and those creepy giant insects is phenomenal.

Favorite movies ... well ... The Lord of the Rings trilogy for certain. I also really like the Tremors movies, The Mummy and the Mummy Returns and the second Aliens movie. John Wayne's The Quiet Man and McLintock and can't forget Errol Flynn's Robin Hood or Grease.

Those are the; it's a horrid day, get out the popcorn movies.

I like a lot of the ones mentioned already. A couple not mentioned that I suppose are favorites -- since I could watch them over and over and not tire of them -- are The Saint and the second Mission Impossible.

How about the "The 13th Warriior", I have been watching it today, while I work. I love how he learns to talk to the vikings(but it is a little bloody).

Lord of the Rings, and the extended versions are 100 times better than the original ones shown in theaters.
Star Wars, especially episodes 3-6 (ROTS redeemed the PT in my book).
Apollo 13
The Abyss
X-men (can't wait for #3)
Dirty Dancing 1 (the sequel sucked big time)
Don't Say A Word
Crimson Tide
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
A Walk on the Moon

(I've seen all of the above, except CTHD, at least twice.)

Gettysburg...has an extended cut....? Really? Oh dear. *must not go running off to Amazon, must not go running off to Amazon....*

Limiting this to movies I could just watch over and over and over again, in no particular order:

Star Wars (original triology)
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Ice Princess
The Cutting Edge
From the Earth to the Moon (you can keep LOTR, I will watch all twelve hours of FtEttM over and over and over until I started wearing out the VHS copies)
Persuasion
Sense and Sensibility
Spirited Away
Gettysburg (except for the giant rotting squirrel carcass that is Martin Sheen's abysmal performance as Robert E. Lee--Robert Duval in "Gods and Generals" PWNED that part, which is no surprise as he's a Lee on his mother's side)
Apollo 13
Secondhand Lions (woefully underrated)
My Neighbor Totoro (I have NO IDEA why)
Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown/What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown? (Two separate specials, really, but they pair up)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Escanaba in Da Moonlight (if you have to ask, you won't get it)
Let It Ride
Shirley Valentine
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Millenium Actress
The Black Stallion (even if the book is about a million times better)

Other favorites include:

Spaceman Spiff:

It's okay. I'll also admit that I like Titanic. It is a good movie with great direction and music. And the idea of a fictional story set in midst of a real-life tragedy is a good concept.

I'm not sure if the extended cut is available on DVD - I have it on laser disc and, except for sales of used ones, I don't think they're available, or even made anymore.

We just bought The Last Starfighter on dvd. It is Rod (hubby's) favorite. He and the boys watched it last weekend and now it is our boys favorite too. I think I saw it but don't remember much so I will have to see it with them soon.

My favorites
The Matrix Trilogy
De-Lovely
Secondhand Lions
Bride and Prejudice
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
The Lion in Winter
Kiss Me Kate
The Man From Snowy River
My Fair Lady
Gia
Gattaca
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
Calender Girls
Tombstone


Those are the ones that stick out to me, but I am sure there are more. However are boys are 6 & 8 so we spend the rare moments watching tv watching their favorites.

The movie is 20 minutes longer than the original (and the DVD.) There's a scene of interaction with some townsfolk and one of finding an escaped slave. Plus, a few other extensions. It also includes an hour long "Making of" documentary and several souvenir items. Another place you might try is lasersedge.com - if they can't get it, perhaps they can provide some leads.

OMG! I am not alone! No one I know likes the movie particularly. (Of course most skaters aren't hot on any skating movie with the notable exception of "The Cutting Edge.")

I actually know Juliana Cannarozzo, who plays Zoe Bloch. No, she doesn't actually have a nose ring. And yes, her voice really does sound like that. And she's really quite nice. I had to loan my DVD to my boss, who has never seen the movie but knows Juliana (we work at the rink where she skates) and has never seen how she was made up in the film. I can't wait to hear her reaction....

Hehe, yup! I don't keep up with figure skating anymore, since skates for guys are hard to come by and EXPENSIVE when I do see them, and women's skates just don't fit right... but I do love watching skating, and it's a great pleasure to see a movie like this with a decent plot that doesn't take all the predictable turns.
