    1. Fiddler on the roof (in fact, if I believe I am getting serious with a guy, I make him watch this movie!)
    2. My Fair Lady (I want to BE Eliza!)
    3. The sound of Music (its a classic, what can i say? I'm a sucker for a good musical)
    4. Much ado about nothing (Can Denzel and Keanu look any hotter in those uniforms!?!)
    5. Midsummer Night's eve (its so corny and imaginative that I just fell in love with it)

    ps my son and I watched Remember the Titans in the movies when it first came out and we cried openly and unabashedly in the theater ... then wiped our faces before walking out ;) What a wonderful film with so many good messages and lessons learned.

    We have wonderful taste :D

    You should see me watching these movies .... I get up and sing and dance with Topol to "if I were rich man" - I think I've got the dance down pat ... and when Audrey Hepburn tries to master "the rain in Spain" I'm right there with her, twirling around singing my heart out!

    Can you believe I lived in NYC and never went to go see the Rocky Horror Picture Show in person? My sister went around 1989 and she said it was the best time ever. I wonder if its still playing after all these years?

    *Sigh* If I were a rich man, yup, I hear you, how can you watch that and not imitate the dance? though is it a dance? :? - meh it's classic never-the-less, my favourite is Tradition :mrgreen:

    Hmm, and I wonder why people on INTJf think I'm and ENFP :roll:

    I own all but one of Cokenut's fav's. My fair lady, taken from George Bernard Shaw, I could never do more than every now and then . . . sorry C'nut! I think it's b/c I'm a purist, and it doesn't follow the play!
    But still, great movies!!

    Watched "King Kong" yesterday. Adrian Brody's character is to die for!! He may not be hot, but his personality sure is! So yum!

    :) #6 on my list would be Fantasia. Watching it is a visceral experience, because I really do get pictures like that in my head when I listen to classical music.

    Alice in Wonderland wouldn't be far behind. I don't care if it's not perfectly true to the book. I still love it!

    I will list five, but I cannot say these are really the top five. I just can't narrow it down that far.

    Edward Scissorhands
    O Brother, Where Art Thou
    Spider-Man 2
    The Talented Mr. Ripley
    The Bourne Supremacy

    1. LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring
    2. Star Wars (all, I know that's cheating)
    3. The Shawshank Redemption
    4. High Noon
    5. Rocky

    Movies I've watched a thousand times...
    1. Big Trouble in Little China
    2. Tombstone
    3. Alien, Aliens, Alien III, Alien Resurrection
    4. Matrix series
    5. True Romance

    I'm pretty much obsessed with movies and had a chance to be an extra in Stephen King's "Dolan's Cadillac". They needed big guys and I made the cut. It wasn't a speaking role so I won't get credit, but I did get paid $56 dollars for the 6 hours I was on set. Very weird experience because they treat extras like poop. :evil: I was glad to do it just for the experience.
