Ones I've not yet seen mentioned:

Megamind

How to Train Your Dragon

Commando (I like comedies)

Das Boot (the TV series, NOT the movie)

Dark Star

Alien and Aliens.

The Outlaw Joesy Wales

A Fistful of Dynamite

I Claudius (TV Series with Derek Jacobi)

Constantine

The Vampires of Havana (it's animated, very much not PG, and you will not stop laughing once. Find a dubbed version, not a subtitled one if your Spanish is bad)

Back to the Future

The first three Indiana Jones movies

Hancock (stupid but fun)

The China Syndrome (message is blah, acting superb)

Catch Me If You Can

The Lady in the Van

Seen most of these, but China Syndrome is new to me... surprised to see "Lady in the Van".. which I also found delightful. Thanks EC !

If you're including old sci-fi movies, I like Brainstorm (Natalie Wood's last movie), Final Countdown (w/Kirk Douglas), Andromeda Strain, and more recently, Limitless, Dreamcatcher, The Mist, The Thing, The 5th Wave.

For new flicks....The Shack (2017) is a good one.  Didn't think I was going to like it.  I did though.

Thanks, I really enjoyed this film... Ingrid Bergman did a great job here, she reminds me of my wife with all that pretty hair.

Special Behind the Green Door

Thanks Frank, have not heard of either of these to be honest. I think I can find My Mother the Car on YouTube. Will see if can find the other on the net to also give a try.

Everyone who ever posted anything is 'wrong'.


The only real movie worth watching is 'The Music Man'.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

Thanks 240B, I have watched it... lets just say musicals aren't my thing. No disrespect though... seems the movie is on a lot of favorite lists.

I respectfully disagree with your opinion of what you thought of the film. I think you liked it. It is not physically or psychologically possible for anyone to not like that movie.


If you continue to 'not like' the movie, then I have no choice but to consider you to be insane.


So, what will it be? Have you reconsidered your obvious 'opposition' to a great film, or have you reconsidered your aberrant opinion?

On Second though, I am crazy about the movie... don't know what got in me.

Meh. I'm not a musical fan, either, although I liked Paint Your Wagon.

I'm not too worried if one person thinks I am nuts, either...

There you go. Now, finally, you are talking sensibly. Good to know you @Sighlass.

For Musicals, I'm fond of South Pacific and West Side Story.

I will have to admit that I got The Music Man stuck in my head after seeing it at the Theatre in the Round.

There was a sequel to "The Gods must be Crazy" and its pretty good as well.

Yes I enjoyed the sequel also... I even tried a few of those foreign attempts at remaking the original movie but they never quite grabbed me.

Add Collateral Beauty to my list. Its .... good. Really good.

I will give it a try, not a big Will Smith fan other than that love doctor movie he made.
