    There have been so many wonderful movies over the years, but my favorite movie is Toy Story.  My next favorite is the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    Having been a movie buff for about 75 years (truthfully), it's rather hard to say.  The moment I think, "That's it", another one pops in my head.  This morning I was thinking of "Somewhere In Time", "Room With A Vieiw" and 'Madame Bovary".  Tomorrow it might occur to me how much I like "Hunt For Red October", "A Few Good Men", "Lost Horizon", "Pride and Prejudice" and "The Birds".  Can't leave out "Braveheart", "Matrix", "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel". . .  And on and on with outstanding films.  How can I possibly choose ONE? 

    I'll try.  I saw "Gone With The Wind" on its first rounds in 1939 and many times since.  It's such a powerful movie and to think what a trailblazer it was in the industry - just amazing.  It highlights history - both good and very bad parts.  It highlights human character - both good and very bad.  It's amazingly gorgeous and gripping.  What's not to like?
    I have it in my DVD library and have to watch it again from time to time.  Today might be a good day to watch it, in fact!!

    There are so many but if I had to pick one today, I'd have to say "Lady Sings The Blues." It's the story of Billie Holiday, flawlessly portrayed by Diana Ross who was nominated for an Oscar for her performance. It moves me everytime I watch it.

    The Godfather. Not exactly an original choice, but it has everything a great movie needs in  terms of direction, acting, music, dialogue, etc.

      So many of my favorites in your list & so few I'd not include! Definitely yes to Colin Firth's "Pride & Prejudice".  I love all 6 of Jane Austen's stories brought to the screen & see you include Emma Thompson's lovely "Sense & Sensibi

    It's a hard one. I have so many movies that I love watching again and again. I think it's a toss-up between 'Tangled' and 'Day After Tomorrow'. Strange combination, right?
    I love 'Tangled' because it's such a sweet story and it's based on a fairytale, but it has more plot to it. The characters are so lovable, and sometimes I find myself singing or humming along to the songs!

    'Day After Tomorrow' is probably one of the first disaster movies that I've ever seen, and I absolutely enjoyed that as well. I think it encouraged me to watch more movies in that genre.

      Such a movie can make one think of realities surrounding us and whether or not we'd know what to do.

    Yes! Impossible question. There are so many good movies. If I had to choose 1 of 10 would be easier. But for now I will say Groundhog day with Bill Murray. I love how romantic he becomes at the end and wins the girl.
