I like the old musicals... Sound of Music, Westside Story, 7 Brides for 7 brothers, My Fair Lady, Dr. Dolittle.

And Breakfast at Tiffany's has always been a favorite.

My favorite "modern" is A FEW GOOD MEN.

Another vote for Saw here... it's not so much scary as it is interesting, but in that sense it's great. It fails on some SMALL aspects but overall it's much better than most recent horror movies.

Second hand lions was also all kinds of fun, especially if you love those oldschool pulp hero type things since that's what second hand lions pays homage to.

As for my own recomendations:
Im recomending Frida again since the movie still rocks after watching it again. It's got Alfred Molina (the villain from spiderman 2) as Diego Rivera, a super influential mexican painter who delved in cubism, communism and womanizing. His wife (Frida) is twice as much of a character, played by Salma Hayek she pumps out surrealist self portraits while seducing both genders and dealing with lifelong injuries from a trolley accident. Im not going to lie, it's an arthouse film, but probably the most entertaining one you'll see any time soon and it's got TONS of great talent in it.

B@d@$$$$$: Sorry about that but I HAVE to plug this movie. It's a dramatization of Melvin Van Peebles efforts to put out a revolutionary movie made by blacks for blacks back when that kind of thing was unheard of. You get to follow Mario playing his dad in a "warts and all" style and the pace of this thing is amazing, the movie just flies past you, especially if you have an interest in movie making.

Y tu mama tambien: One of the few Mexican movies made by my favorite Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron (He did the 3rd harry potter movie, the little princess and great expectations in america) and it's awesome. It's ***y, it's funny, it's introspective, it's political, it's very often politically incorrect and never preachy at all. I've known people who have been offended by the movie but never anyone who didint like it.

pdswife...........I just watched Breakfast at Tiffany's about 3 months ago for the 1st time. I loved it! I still have other old ones that I've heard about but have never seen that are on my list. Like Gone with The Wind and another that I can't think of the name of right now but its an old one where a girls mother is black and her father is white and she is ashamed of her mother because she's black. I've heard this is a real tear jerker. I think I'll swing by the video store today and pick that one up.

I think I know the one you are talking about... but, for the life of me I can't remember the name either...

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?
GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER.
TO SIR WITH LOVE
Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte

Are also good if you like older movies.

pdswife, I think the movie you were talking about is Imitation of Life starring Natalie Wood. Very good movie. Have a hanky handy.

Mudbug, it's Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.;-)

I agree with those who said Second Hand Lions, hubby even liked that one!

IMO, Saw was more gross than scary, but it was very good.
