    Daffy Duck Quackbusters =P

    All the old school Scooby Doos... wait that's not movies! x.X

    Watched The Green Mile many times (such an amazing piece of work) but it's always been hard to watch without crying, Haven't watched since Michael Clarke Duncan died so I know I will just cry like a baby so I will probably skip that one for awhile. >_>

    The Green Mile is one of my favorites. Michael Duncan Clarke is so perfect for the role of John Coffey.

    danie AKA danie

    Plus Rudolph's dad was so mean too.
     
  10. kingzeppelin

    kingzeppelin Member who probably should be COMMITTED!

    Repeat viewing of all things "King" on a regular rotation and at Christmas "It's A Wonderful Life".
    But the house rule is it must snow first, which is not always guaranteed here in the UK.
    Plus "Scrooge" (the 1949 version with Alastair Sim) terrific film.
    Followed by "Bad Santa", very crude and very rude but very funny!
    Great festive viewing!
     
  11. Neesy

    Neesy #1 fan (Annie Wilkes cousin) 1st cousin Mom's side

    I like the Alastair Sim version the best, too (Mom being from over the pond that was her favourite)
    Have not seen Bad Santa with Billy Bob so I'll have to catch it if and when it airs over here

    I also love the old version of Scrooge with Alastair Sim , also It's A Wonderful Life and Miracle On 34th Street ( the 1947 version) with Emund Gwenn who surely is the real Santa!![​IMG]
    All films starring Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor

    Also love The Green Mile, It, The Shawshank Redemption, Dolores Claiborne, Misery, Pet Semetary, Meet Me In St. Louis, Calamity Jane, The Ladykillers, Bringing Up Baby, Bachelor Knight, Happy Go Lucky and many, many more

    It was one of the movies the humanities teacher showed when I took Film Viewing and Construction. I really loved that class. Other movies he chose were Buster Keaton's The General, Casblanca, and Breathless (1960).

    As for Christmas celebration, I grew up being able to listen to Handel's Messiah, the whole thing on public radio.Then was year after year less and less able to due to the encroaching damnable political correctness. The don't play even the Hallelujah Chorus on NPR anymore. Screw them. An absolute for me has always been A Christmas Carol with Alistair Sim. I don't think any remake will ever top that one. Of course, It's a Wonderful Life is a must, but not necessarily every year for me anymore. I've seen it so many times. Same with Miracle on 34th Street.

    How bizarre? I have just been flicking through the channels, and Stand By Me is on 5*+1 in the UK in just under 5 minutes. I have never caught it from the beginning so it's a double bonus for me.

    Hell yes, The Thing !!!!

    Kurt Russell never gets old, nor do the amazing effects and soundtrack.

    Highlander is a movie I can watch over and over (my avatar sort of implies that)

    Oh hell yeah, John Carpenter's remake of The Thing is one of the best remakes and horror movies of all time. Watching that movie is like reading a Stephen King book over and over, it just never gets old.

    Watched Maximum Overdrive on IFC last night. Fun and entertaining, and it's got a great musical score. Always been a sucker for those campy 80's horror flicks, with Night of the Comet being my favorite.
