    i rented a few movies yesterday, seeing i had a few days off. i rented one of the movies, not sure exactly why? well maybe i do.....but i am a man i'm not allowed to admit to watching this type of stuff right? lol! :d

    anyways, the movie actually held my attention the entire time. as it neared the last 40 minutes, a lot of the things that were said really got to me. i won't tell anyone i cried, because i am a guy.....and guys don't cry (lie)
    i won't tell anyone the movie wasn't emotional (lie) , because i'm a guy.
    i won't even tell anyone the name of the movie, because there are guys all over this board...lol!
    however, if your not a guy.....my guess is when i leave this quote... you will know the name of the movie.
    the movie also made me think, if this was a true to life situation.....i could promise the ending would not be the same for me.

    oh yeah???? the quote! "certainty like this comes, but once in a lifetime"

    I haven't seen many movies lately. I saw Blackhawk Down the first week it came out in theaters and it was excellent. Definitely one to own on DVD! I'm wanting to rent Don't Say a Word, but not sure if it's any good. Sounds intriguing though. BTW, I don't think I've seen that movie, the quote doesn't sound familar. Another hint ?

    ok violet...another hint? how about a quote...... "we're not two people anymore"

    you want to get a movie for dvd and surround sound that would be awesome!!!! i saw "behind enemy lines" with gene hackman, that movie was 100% awesome from the very start until the very end!!!!!!!

    Yu want to know what I rented that I thoroughly enjoyed?
    Well, I'd love to tell you, but I am having a senior moment, and can't remember, but I starred The guy from Shine (??) and Kate Winslet, it was set in a mental institution in the 1700's (?) I think, maybe in France? Anyway, Shine huy was sooo good, he was a writer of early "porn" type books, which was a scandal, but even tho everyone acted like it was sooo horrible to read it, they all sneaked the books behind the covers of other more acceptable titles.

    It was very serious at times, and hysterically funny at times, and hey, I LOVE those period movies with the costumes and that English accent. Great movie, someone help me remember the title!

    Saw Vanilla Sky, WEIRD WEIRD WEIRD!!!!! Creept even. I would only watch it again if it comes on TV for free.

    Saw MOulin Rouge, interesting, quirky, colorful,, sad. Not my favorite kind of movie.

    Gone with the wind has been on a few times on TNT and I LOVE that movie. My favorite line "I don't know nuthin' 'bout birthin' no babies Miz Scaaahlet!" Priceless! I could watch it over and over and NEVER get bored.

    Wizard of Oz, a major favorite. LOve the flying monkeys!

    Titanic, I just love that whole drawing scene followed by that love scene, but the best love scene in that whole movie is just before the nookie, when they are on the front (bow?) of the ship, and they are playing with each others hands.....don't know why that does it for me... Honey... Come here.....

    The Color Purple Another one I could watch over and over.

    Ditto Shawshank redemption, when Andy plays that Opera music over the intercom, that is my fav part.

    Sci-Fi, loved Men in Black.

    Ohhh, a REALLY good movie is Presumed Innocent, what a great suspense movie.

    For fun, a movie that really cracks me up is Nine to Five, when Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton and Lilly Tomlin all smoke that joint and tell their fantasies of how to kill the boss...I could die laughing. I really like the Snow White Fantasy!

    Romance Peggy Sue got married. Better 50's movie American Graffitti....GREAT music too.

    I could go on and on.

    ONe more Nine months with Hugh Grant and Julianne Moore, hysterical! Robin Williams as the OB/GYN is a hoot!!!

    Shakespeare in Love was really good, and Pleasantville was a pleasant surprise. I expected Pleasantville to be a cute fluffy thing but was delighted to find it had actual theme and metaphor within it too. A Knight's Tale was enjoyed by the whole family. My nine year old son was on the edge of his seat with the jousting, and hubby and I were amused by the Chaucer character.

    We always check the reviews at rottentomatoes.com before we go to a movie. Hubby and I don't get out much and we don't want to squander an evening out on something worthless.

    I LOVE movies. I spend my days off:chuckle sitting watching movies. Of course, i have to try to do my homework at the same time.

    My favorite movie, as if i can name just one, is Shawshank Redemption. On the same note, i loved The Green Mile too.

    I could sit and watch a Marilyn Monroe film anytime. She cracks me up. My husband HATES when i force him to sit through one.

    I just rented Don't Say A Word and really liked it too.

    Another movie that i have watched probably 6 times in the last 2 months is Coyote Ugly. It is just such a fun movie.

    There are soooooo many more good ones out there. I want to go see Black Hawk Down really bad, but with two little kids I doubt if me and the hubby will be able to get away to do so.

    Well lets see...recently in the theatre I've seen The Mothman Prophesies...creepy but interesting, Ocean's 11...excellent, a good plot that you could just enjoy without sex and violence etc. I saw Vanilla Sky twice and loved it, it was one that really made you think as you watched or you'd get lost--so not one to see after a long day, plus I like the underlying "theme" of the movie.

    My all time favorite is The Burbs, I could watch it everyday and still crack up, Tom Hanks is hilarious! :chuckle Love Gone with the Wind, and my mom and I were addicted to the Mini-series the North and South (anyone else remember this one?) there's just something about a good southern belle story!

    I am also a big horror fan, I have a big collection but my favorite is still probably the first Halloween. Before I had cable my friends would tease me about "Scream Sunday" hey--what else am I gonna watch on Sunday afternoons with only 5 channels?!

    Rick-don't know which movie you're hinting on, so your secret's safe with me When my bf is allowed to control the remote he always ends up stopping on a sappy Lifetime movie, not that I mind, but I know he'd change it right away if I'd mention what were watching outloud, lol....I love to cry at movies, it helps me get it out of my system


    I'm sure I'll think of more favorites later...

    You might see a British bias here but... Loved Bridget Jones' Diary and also saw Gosford Park and loved both movies. Have seen Bridget Jones 3 times and adore Colin Firth.
