Just about everyone loves films. Here's my Top 10, top it, rearrange, or based on my preferences suggest one for me to see!! Thank you fellow cs'ers.
Hugh Grant as Prime Minister of England? - one of the best ensemble casts in movies! love it!
Best movie music I've ever heard (score) celtic drums & pipes will haunt you for hours after the film is over. Fabulous cast & my fav. filmmaker also. Beautiful scenery in Nova Scotia, I believe.
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
IMO Marilyn's best, although Some Like It Hot often gets that award. Love the fashions! This movies is basically a fashion show in Paris - great period clothing & Jane Russell's imitation of Marilyn is one of the funniest moments in film EVER!!
Breakfast at Tiffany's
I love Audrey Hepburn! Who doesn't? The early morning opening scene to this film is one of my favorites in film - reminds me of my college partying days
Bridget Jones' Diary #1
Very funny! I've seen it oooooooohhh maybe a dozen times! I never get tired of it!
Good Will Hunting
What's to say.....? Maybe the best movie ever made. Best cast, acting. I think it's pretty much a classic by now.
Peggy Sue Got Married
Maybe Kathleen Turner's best film besides Body Heat. Love the music in this one.
Speaking of Kathleen Turner. This movie is full of wonderful surprises & has an excellent cast - no bad scenes, but lots of "bad" scenes.
Yes! It was great!!! I love Superheroes sooo..next....
The Dark Knight
maybe my favorite superhero film as Batman is my favorite superhero
French for The Closet. Hilarious sexy French movie done only as the Frenchies could! English subtitles available if you need
Also a French Film, I think. It's actually in 3 languages German French & English (brogue). Christmas in the trenches in France during WW1. Excellent.
Italien For Beginners
Danish film, actually. English subtitles - really good movie - very "real time." - very down to earth as I'd expect from a Dane
Not necessarily in this order from 1- 13 - just tried to get favorites on here. The non-english speaking titles are grouped at the end, but it's not a qualitative statement.
Thanks for the list, maybe I'll try watching those that I have not yet seen
What someone else deems as classic may be a more traditional definition of classicism. But I don't much care for snobs.
Oh and thanks Dag, Italien for Beginners is the kind of movie I like. I have also seen other favorite lists on here and thought the choices were not very good, but of course I have the maturity to realize that not everyone is going to like the same things. Some very popular movies I have found to be quite mediocre....whatever, it's all our opinions.
Of course everyone's favorites are entirely subjective. I do have the DVD of Italian For Beginners. It's an odd film, slow-paced, yet ultimately intriguing and even charming.
If we are going with 'Classics' like that, then why not Dead Poets Society?
Or maybe films that created a new trend in movies and helped define a whole generation? Movies staring the Brat Pack. Such as The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, etc.
I realize this is your version of a top ten, so I am not going to argue against why some are there, and all that. I just don't agree with the term classic being applied to something that has pretty much faded into history and is hardly mentioned anymore.
