any Marvel movie
Any Kim Ki-duk, Takeshi Kitano and Hayao Miyazaki movie
also ‘Valhalla Rising’ is one of my favorite movies ever.
The only good superhero movie is Watchmen
On the Waterfront
The Godfather I+II
A History of Violence
Warcraft, if you like fantasy
@b7official Valhalla rising? Totally surreal but much, much prefer Drive by the same director!
The first five minutes of the watchman is awesome (the Bob Dylan montage).
monty python and the holy grail
life of brian
idiocracy (in light of the current political climate)
Snatch (Brad Pitt’s accent spot on)
The Shawshank Redemption
The Equaliser (Morgan Freeman)
The Long Kiss Goodnight
Dirty Dancing (Nobody puts baby in the corner)
The Green Mile
Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (my husband used to hang around with Vinnie Jones as a child and he was apparently a quiet boy!)
Shrek (all of them)
Ghost (I fell in love with Patrick Swayze - please see above ;-))
Four Weddings and A Funeral (…seen this a few times)
Love Actually (always on at Christmas - still like it though!)
These are all films I’ve watched more than once in order of preference!
Agree, Watchmen is amazing!
Whenever someone is asking me about favourite movies, these two come to my mind. Maybe not all time favourite, but definetly left something in my heart:
La migliore offerta - outstanding Geoffrey Rush performance
Things We Lost in the Fire - great acting by Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro, and a tormenting sadness all throughout.
Some of my favorites.
“Arizona Dream” and “Underground” by Emir Kusturitza
"Walking through H" and “Drowning by Numbers” by Peter Greenaway
"Delicatessen" by Jean-Pierre Jeunet/Marc Caro
"Kin-dza-dza" and “Слёзы капали” (Tears were Falling) by Georgiy Daneliya
"Brazil" by Terry Gilliam
"Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter… and Spring" by Kim Ki-duk
