I love any of the John Grisham movies, that guy can put a story together! Anything that tugs at the heart-strings without being too soppy, and general action/suspense.

My choices mostly include my favorite actors; Denzel Washington, Matthew McConaughey and Clint (no surname necessary)

In random order;

Dances with wolves
Ghost
Phenomenom
Enemy at the Gates (Jude Law)
The Pelican Brief
A time to kill
The bone collector
Where eagles dare
The guns of Navarone
Contact
Frequency
The Sting

Great thread, urmaniac. I haven't seen 'Immortal Beloved' yet, but just know I'd enjoy it - so add it in as my 13th choice!
