    What is one movie you would recommend? Why? Preferably your all time favorite.

    I'd like to know if I've seen these movies, and if I haven't, maybe you can convince me to see it (and probably review).    smile

    Ha can't pick just one. Here's some of my favorite overlooked gems:

    1) Donny Darko, especially if you enjoy mind-bending movies.
    2) Kill Bill, but only if you can stomach excessive gore, crudeness, and strangeness.
    3) The Descent, if you like horror.
    4) The Emperor's New Groove for a more lighthearted and humorous Disney film.

    Other favorites include Star Wars, Mission Impossible, and the Dark Knight, but you've likely encountered these famous movies already.

    I'll tell you about one movie I saw a long time ago;one that will reach into your gut and squeeze any sense of false self righteousness out of you if it is to be found..."Saving the Franklin's"...Not dirty,not gory,not even any swearing...just extreme human nature and rationalization.

    I like spirited away and kimi no na wa.
    I'd recommend Breakfast at Tiffany's.
    For comedy, Friends with Benefits:)
    For something fairy tale like, Mirror Mirror!
    If you want something cute, I suggest A Crazy Little Thing Called Love.
    Hmm, what else . . . I'm pretty sure there's more but I can't seem to remember. So, enjoy!

      LOL...The more I read these comments, the more I'm sure I'm a movie freak. I've seen most of the films you mentioned.

      Also, while I really liked spirited away, I LOVED howl's moving castle.

    I love the classic westerns.  There are many good ones.
    1960 Magnificent Seven
    1962 How the West was Won
    1962 Ride the High Country
    1969 The Wild Bunch
    1990 Quigley Down Under
    1990 Dances with Wolves
    1992 Unforgiven
    2003 Open range
    And every remake they ever did of the 1902 classic novel by Owen Wister, Horseman of the Plains-The Virginian. There are quite a few and a television show that ran 9 years.

    On reading your question the one that sprang to mind is "Terms of Endearment" starring Jack Nicholson, Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger.

    It always takes me through a gamut of emotions whenever I watch it, even though I know what's coming because I've seen it several times.  It has me laughing out loud at times and unable to stop crying in parts.  A must see if ever there was one.
