Feel free to throw in a couple bucks worth tomorrow. I like knowing a little about a movie before I buy it--older, newer, doesn't matter to me!

Here's the beginning of my best movies.
Movie--why I liked it.

The Shawshank Redemption--justice in an unjust world.

The Piano--story about feelings and communication, beautiful music and scenery. Love and Hate.

The Green Mile--the characters, of evil (Percy Wetmore), of good (Tom Hank's character).

Forrest Gump--good feelings, meaning well, and the way his life was laced through historical moments.

Erin Brockovich--what a smart person can do because they care.

Philadephia--injustice and how the court system tears people apart by allowing every personal attack and innuendo. Prejudice.

Avatar--Lack of respect for a culture/religion to pillage their resources.

Little Miss Sunshine--happy and sad points, it made me laugh. Terribly inappropriate--funny.

(there's more, I'm just not sitting by my favorite movies on DVD--more to follow)

What are your favorite movies? Have you just seen one you really liked? Let's talk about it. Like any of my favorites?

That pretty much would be my list too and in the same order. Expect the last one, I simply have not seen it yet.

A few I can think of...
  • The Fifth Element. One of my all-time favorites. It's just a fun, fast-paced flick that I can watch again and again.
  • Avatar. I haven't seen it since it was in the theaters. I can't tell you how disappointed I am that they haven't released the Blu-Ray 3D version to the general public yet. I won't buy it until they do.
  • Gladiator. Historical inaccuracies aside, this is another one I can watch over and over.
  • All the Men in Black movies. And yes, I've seen the newest one, too.
  • Sideways. What can I say? I'm a wine lover.
  • All the Terminator movies. Even the bad ones.
  • Blade Runner
  • The first two "Alien" movies
  • The Breakfast Club
  • Raising Arizona
  • O Brother Where Art Thou
  • The Matrix movies. They were ahead of their time.
  • Dark City. A weird sci-fi vampire movie, and I pretty much hate all vampire movies.
In a nutshell, I can sit and watch anything by Ridley Scott or the Coen brothers.

Lovely list, especially the first two!
