Have you seen Gunga Din? There's none better! Today's movies are too psychedelic for me. I get dizzy watching all those scene changes every two seconds. I'll stick to the movies they made in the Golden Age of Hollywood when they knew how to make them. Thanks.
I always remember "Jaws". I was a kid when I first saw it and have seen it probably a hundred times since. The line "We're gonna need a bigger boat" is priceless. The best statement of the obvious I have ever heard in a movie.
Forrest Gump definitely comes to mind. It's got one of the best soundtracks ever, cataloging the best American music of the 50's, 60's and 70's. Of course it also showcases every single important event during that same time period. Awesome.
Plenty memory-stickers, but the first such was African Queen. I was six, we didn't get to go to the theater very often, they had all-day grape suckers (lollipops) that sometimes allowed you to win a second such...and as far as the movie itself was concerned, the leeches were awesome.
I am a movie fanatic. If I had to choose one movie off the top of my head it would have to be 12 Monkeys which a lot of people didn't like. It's one of those movies that makes you think and it brings up the constant debate of time travel. Can you ever truly change the past, or have whatever you decided already made the future what it will be so you can therefore never truly change the past? Boggles the mind. Almost as much as the ending of that film. I won't ruin it to those who haven't seen it. If you like movies, please check out my main hub. http://hubpages.com/hub/rantsfromamovienut Thanks, Jim
Older movies tend to make a lasting impression on me. I most remember Westward the Women! Wow, awesome movie. Then there was To Kill a Mockingbird, another movie that made a lasting impression. And I'll never forget Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window"....ooooooohhh. that was scary, then The Birds. I could go on and on, but won't.
I just saw The Princess and the Frog. The New Orleans setting wasn't quite what I was expecting, but I enjoyed the movie with my three daughters. My four year old loved it and my seven year old liked it.I...
Among my least favorite films are SHINING THROUGH and I AM SAM.My least favorite movie experiences usually involve somebody talking. What's that Darren Aronofsky film with the tree? I forget, but I do remember two old...
