Your all time top 10 films?

Here is another top 10 theme...

1. Stand By Me
2. Dead Poets Society
3. Immortal Beloved
4. A Fish Called Wanda
5. La Vita E' Bella (Life is Beautiful)--it would have been THE top film of all time for me if the ending was happier... blame me for having seen too many hollywood stuff, but it was just too sad to swallow!!
6. Importance of Being Earnest
7. Billy Elliott
8. Finding Neverland
9. Finding Nemo
10. Lost in Translation

A couple of honorary mentions among many others which I couldn't squeeze in...

-my big fat greek wedding / what a hilarious film... and the way they eat!! I love it and it is very similar to Italian weddings!!

-A touch of spice / this is a greek film from a couple of years ago... probably not very well known among the main stream crowds, but I highly recommend this film to everyone here... you can relate to the main character from the bottom of your heart, and it is so much more than a film about cooking and food... such a poignant story... try to find it it will be worth your time!

Hey Tex.....Steel Magnoilas is my all time favorite movie too. DH knows if its on when I'm flipping the channels then we'll be watching it no matter how recently we watched it. My all time favorite part in the movie is when Olymphia Dukakas pushes Shirley McLain in front of Sally Fields offering her as a punching bag.

1. Steel Magnolias
2. The Homecoming **A Waltons Christmas Movie**....tradition to watch every Christmas....used to watch it with my mom. DH bought it for me last Christmas.
3. Fried Green Tomatoes
Those are the only 3that I can say are my all time favorites....ones I can watch over and over and never get tierd of.

Cover Girl (Rita Hayworth)
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (Harrison Ford, Sean Connery)
You've Got Mail (Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan)
