Which movies have you seen?



A couple of explanations: I thought "The Pianist" was terribly overrated. There are much better, more memorable, and more touching movies about The Holocaust (such as, for example, "Schindler's List", which also made the top 100). Same with "Braveheart"; lord knows I'm a Scotland fan, but that movie? Drivel. Sorry, but that's my opinion.

Let's see, are my favorite movies of all time on there?

Wizard of Oz - check!
To Kill a Mockingbird - check!
Casablanca - check!
LOTR: FOTR - check!
Star Wars - check!
Raiders of the Lost Ark - check!
Alien - check!
Monty Python and the Holy Grail - check!
The Princess Bride - check!
Anything with Jimmy Stewart in it - check! check! check!

I'm happy. *G*

*huzzah's your Braveheart opinions*

That movie seriously needed a writer, a director, and an editor. I am STILL bitter about everything involving its Oscar wins (and those who not only lost but weren't even nominated). The wins for ROTK somewhat restored my faith in the Oscars.

Of the ones you haven't seen, I would highly recommend:

All About Eve - what a roller coaster ride! "Fasten your seatbelts; it's going to be a bumpy night!"

Also, although it's not for all tastes - Run Lola Run. I think it's a fabulous movie, and I get caught up in it every time.

I've heard great things about both of them, and I can't understand why I never caught "Eve" on TV. And Lola - with Lij's ex-"girlfriend"! *G* (everything comes back to LOTR)
