      Gone with the wind. It's dramatic, funny, romantic, historical, powerful... it's got it all.

        I love that movie too.  You're right.  It has it all.

      I really adore Inception and Now You See Me.  They're not what you'd expect, they make you think (to this day, every time I watch Inception, I find something new that I never noticed before) and they really make you view the world a little bit differently.  I like psychological movies a lot more than just pure horror/slasher/bloody pulp movies, so anything that catches me off-guard and makes me really think about it catches my attention.

        Don't you just love reading something or watching a movie and seeing something new every time.  I always ask myself, "How did I miss that?"

        Sed-me, you will probably laugh, but I am such a romantic and I LOVE romantic comedies.  My absolute favorite is Pretty Woman.  I can't tell you how many times I've watched that film, and just writing about it now makes me want to see it again.  I love any movie with Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock or Drew Barrymore,  On the serious side I love Jane Austen and Sense and Sensibility.  …and then I have to mention Forrest Gump and The Sound of Music…but the list goes on and on.

      Shine, starring Geoffrey Rush (1996) as pianist David Helfgott. The film moved me deeply. It's a story of a man who became unable to do his life's work, having suffered a nervous breakdown... which affected his adult life for many years. Finally, he received the love and compassion he needed to resume his passion. The film received an Academy award for Best Actor in 1997.

        I have not seen this one, and it sounds great.  I'll have to check it out.  Thanks for sharing.

    The Shawshank Redemption. Damn near everything about that film is perfect and engrossing and memorable. I don't even care that it's a slow burner and it's over two hours long--I get so wrapped up in the characters and the story every time, and it always manages to hit home with its key scenes. Absolutely brilliant film.

    If anyone's curious, I keep a Top 10 list on my profile page, so I can gush about something else you might not have seen~

        Oh gosh!  I forgot to add A Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man!

          Ahhh…A Beautiful Mind is a powerful film.  It's hard to believe that someone could write something so mesmerizing and captivating.  BUT…The King's Speech did not work for me.

            I have a soft spot for Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth both, and thought they both did justice to their roles in The King's Speech.

          Both awesome movies as well as The King's Speech. Did you like Far and Away and Apollo 13?

          1. Doris Dancy profile image79
            Doris Dancyposted 4 years agoin reply to this

            Sed-me, I haven't seen Far and Away, but yes, I loved Apollo 13.  With all of the writing that I do, I am quite behind in my movies.  I'm writing the sequel to my first novel and about to send it to my publisher so I'm not getting to watch movies right now.  When I finish this, I will get myself back on target because I LOVE movies.

            I hang my head in shame to say that I haven't seen Apollo 13.  I actually saw Far and Away in the theatre the year before I graduated from high school.  smile LOVED it.
