Movies I Like

JERRY MAGUIRE…this movie is perfect. I wasn’t even a fan of Tom Cruise’s until this movie. I love the message, I love the relationship between Tom and Renee, how can anyone not love the little boy, Cuba Gooding is a GENIUS, and the woman that plays his wife is an undeniable genius, too! And Aries Spears is also a genius. I have seen this movie twenty zillion times and I am not sick of it yet.
Thanks to Laurie Freelove for introducing it to me!!!

Whale Rider…you MUST see this movie. It is unbelievably beautiful.

Spirited Away. Gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. And all hand drawn!

The Sound Of Music, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Being John Malkovich, Reds (saw it four times—that’s sixteen hours of the same film),
Elephant Man, Chocolat, Amelie, Wings of Migration (how did they do it? a very lush film). Best in Show, Tarzan (Disney’s Animated Version…fun, beautiful, great soundtrack), Jurassic Park (in the theatre..that first time…whoa.), The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, Barefoot Gen (NOT an easy watch…but an amazing anime about the bombing of Hirsohima and Nagasaki)…Atomic Cafe…RED DAWN…The first and third Austin Powers (brilliant)…Almost everything with Katherine Hepburn…Fargo…Three Cabelleros (unbelievable animation…stunning). Yellow Submarine. And, c’mon…HARD DAY’S NIGHT…so good, funnnny. Such lovely cinematography…I love the black and white.

Has anyone ever seen “Robin & Marian” with Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn. So sweet…

And, of course, who can not love “The Reluctant Dragon” or “Dragonheart”. Sean Connery is exemplary as the dragon’s voice, and the visual effects of the dragon were way ahead of their time.

I’m sure I’ll be adding to this. Just thought it would be fun to start one!

    Somehow, I missed that you mentioned Spirited Away…sorry about that! I’m a mother of two, you know…the mind gets foggy often. =:-O

    Have you seen Enchanted April? I saw it with a group several years ago. Afterwards, the women just couldn’t stop talking about it.
    I never would have gone to see a chick flick alone, but it was worth seeing with someone.

    Don’t forget Airplane, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein…The last is probably my all-time favorite comedy. A wonderful classic movie is “Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House” with Cary Grant.

    For current flix, try Pirates of the Carribean.

    Spirited Away?

    Ooh – if you liked “Amelie”, try “Happenstance”. It’s wonderful! It’s a beautiful little journey where every tiny event affects a diverse group of people and shows how life is so interconnected. It’s like a romantic Rube Goldberg device…
