Discussion in 'Other Movies' started by Out of Order, Nov 21, 2013.
I just recently watched this for the first time. Poignant.
I love it. Especially Karl Malden's speech in the cargo hold.
I will always watch when they are on TV:
The Green Mile
and lots more I'm forgetting...
We have most of the Christmas classics on DVD so I watch them every year. Rudolph, The Grinch(the old one), Charlie Brown, A Christmas Story, etc. My favorite one though is the Muppet Christmas Carol! It's great!!
Titanic, Gone With the Wind, Oh Brother Where Are Thou?, It's A wonderful Life, Miracle on 43rd Street(but only the original black and white version) How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Tombstone
Are you in my head? I mean, really, are you in my head? Almost every movie on your list is on my list!! How cool is that!!
Just watched All About Eve last night.
I will add to my list:
Inception (a perfect film!)
Batman trilogy (with Bale)
Stargate (with Kurt Russell)
Dracula (gary Oldman)
Lord Of The Rings
Fried Green Tomatoes
Benny and June (Depp is hilarious!)
Raise Your Voice
Some of these mentioned here are also some of my favs. I could almost recite these movies line for line seen'em so many times.
John Carpenter's Halloween
The Lost Boys
Salem's Lot (the original)
American Werewolf in London
Dracula Dead and and Loving It
Shaun of the Dead
The Mad (a zomedy)
Behind Enemy Lines
They Live (best fight scene ever)
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.
Plus Rudolph's dad was so mean too.
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!
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!!
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
I have not noticed it on tv for at least a decade but if Stand By Me is ever on I would watch it.
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)
"I have crossed oceans of time to find you."
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.
Starship Troopers !!!
Come on you apes !!! You wanna live forever ???
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.
