    Shawshank Redemption is a classic.  The Sound of Music. Gone With the Wind.  As Good As It Gets.  Not The Darjeeling Express which I saw last night.

      You reminded me another of my favorite: The Sound of Music! Watched that a long time ago also with my mom... This was back when I was still in Vietnam and the movie was dubbed..... I like it also when I watched the full English version without dubbing. But it was the first time that left an unforgettable moment.

    I love any movie with Tom Hanks but I have to say "A League of Their Own" is the one I have watched the most.  Tom Hanks is a crack-up in that movie.  Close 2nd would be "Forrest Gump"

    I have many more that i could list.....but you could always check out my favorites that i have available for down loads.
    I got tired of all those sites out there that always charge for memberships, so i built my own site. There are over 100 links to movies that other users have uploaded (thus keeping my site legal...hahaha).
    It's completely FREE, NO membership needed or anything.
    The only thing i ask is, if you like the site, tell your friends, and if you are downloading and using my site, please make a small donation to the webmaster (a buck or 2) (alot of time goes into providing updated links and the running cost of hosting).

    it's all there for FREE at " ButterNutWack (dot) com "

    Hope you enjoy.

      Hi there..
      My question has got nothing to do with the posting thread you made.
      But I like to ask you because you have a high number of forum posted, It is 175 now.
      What benefit can you get from hubpages when posting many topics/reply in the forum ?

    Love the movies but I like to read just about as much if not more!

    Many of the movies already mentioned are among my favorites but no one has listed some of the best:

    GONE WITH THE WIND
    THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
    THE HIGH AND THE MIGHTY
    BUTCH CASSIDY & THE SUNDANCE KID
    STAGECOACH (the original)
    ABBOTT & COSTELLO movies (slapstick at it best)
    RED SKELTON movies (again, good clean fun)
    ALL THE ROAD PICTURES w/CROSBY & HOPE (stupid but funny)
    DANNY KAYE movies (laugh a minute)
    MEL BROOKS movies (most are soooo funny)

    OK, brain dried up, can't think of any more right now!

    My personal opinion--Steven King needs to be read and not turned into movies--with the exception of the SHINNING which King hated and remade into a TV mini-series.

          Not bad at all... but I do gravitate towards more alluring types.  Lets say Jeremy Irons -I do not particularly like his films but I have watched them again and again and again just for the pleasure of seeing him and listenning to his velvety voice...
