Jeremiah Johnson (1972)
A mountain man who wishes to live the life of a hermit becomes the unwilling object of a long vendetta by Indians.

I must have seen this movie 20 times. I enjoy watching it again about twice each year. It sets off my imagination and makes me wonder what it would have been like to experience that type of life.

This movie is a 10, on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best, IMHO. Well done, wonderful portrayal of the wilds and great acting by each character.

i wholly agree, timm-ah.

i often dreamed of being a mountain man because of that movie.

it's right up there as a top guy flick as "the outlaw jesse wales", and "full metal jacket".

i watched "everything is illuminated" again.

loved it, again.

jewish hobbits, touching and poignant story, great music.

Bridesmaids ~ laugh out loud funny!! I highly recommend it.

Bad Teacher ~ Predictable, but still entertaining enough.

Shrek won't watch it with me anymore, I can say all the dialog before they say it in the movie... I've seen it once or twice, I'm even worse with Pale Rider.

I ordered Everything Is Illuminated this morning from Netflix. Can't wait to see it. The reviews I read about this film were very good. Thanks for the idea.

i hope you like it, joann. it's quirky, sad, and funny at the same time. great, winding story arc.

i love one reviewer who said one of the characters, a russian guy, sounded like he learned english from a thesaurus.

A film I have seen many times is a documentary called Berlin: Symphony Of A Great City.
It is a black and white film from 1927. It begins at dawn and ends at midnight. It shows the people of Berlin at work and play. It is a glimpse of Berlin before the war.
