spill it? I did my coffee last night.

but on to movies. I think I may be rather bizarre in the realm of movies perhaps not, but............

I like horror made before 1975 or six it was really good back then, IMO and a lot less sex, which for me spoils the movie. I also can't take the blood and gore of today's movies that have little plot and lots of screaming.

I like a well done mystery most British. I am afraid I am not into romance movies. And I like many other love the "Lord of the Rings" to me it is about banding together, standing united.

Oh and I love Godzilla Razz

I will think of more

Oh MC I wondered if we were kindred on some level.

GODZILLA ROCKS!! I own every movie and believe me that wasn't easy. I remember in my home town when I was growing up every Friday night at midnight they played a Godzilla flick. Mom and dad would let me stay up to watch. My favorite Godzilla movie?

Has to be Mothra. BUMMMMMM.....BUM BUM BUM BUM BUMMMMMMMMMM........BU BU BU BUMP.

Somewhere In Time, without a doubt. I cry like crazy every time I watch it. It's just a lovely romance in a gorgeous setting--The Grand Hotel--with Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve. Talk about great eye candy! They both qualify, IMO.

What Dreams May Come, which is a fantastic depiction of what the afterlife may be like although I'm still mega-pissed at the producers for "wussing out" on the ending. If you get hold of the DVD, the alternate ending is true to the book and fits the situation a whole lot better than the Disneyish ending they gave it.

Both based upon books by Richard Matheson who does some excellent stuff on "woo-woo-weirdo" subjects like these.

Harvey I love this movie. I think it is so funny and well, we did have a pony named Pooka. It just reminds a person to be kind to those people who are a little different.

Ladyhawke My daughters and I thought this was so romantic! And we loved his horse. Smile

LOTR trilogy for sure, but I think I burned out on them a while back.

Van Helsing. Still waiting for a part II....

The Big Lebwoski. Godspell. Most any Madea or Tyler Perry movie. Scrooged. I love a lot of movies. Very Happy

One movie I never get tired of watching is The Matrix. Almost every time I watch it I catch something I hadn't noticed before. There are so many philosophical concepts that this movie deals with that you have to watch it more than once to get a good understanding of it. And although I've never been a fan of Keanu Reeves, "Neo" was the perfect role for him to play.

To me, there's a difference between films and movies.

My favorite film of all time is "Baraka".


My favorite movies are;

"Lord of the Rings"

"Dancing at Lughnasa"

"St. Elmo's Fire"

Anything by Tyler Perry

"Fried Green Tomatoes"

And not necessarily in that order.

It's such a "goosepimpler" that Silence of the Lambs borrowed from it. I won't tell you what, though, because I don't want to be a spoiler.

Must have a look at this film!

Hitchcock was the master of making things scary and unsettling, without really showing much, not like today's gore-fests which might make me ill but not scared or enthralled.

I love Miyazaki films (hence the avatar). I've been on this huge music kick of nothing but music from Totoro, Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke.

There's a new one being released in the US at the end of the summer. I can hardly wait! bounce



Other than that, though, I hate most of the anime that makes its way over here.

I did not include Miyazaki for the same reason I did not include Tezuka, I count them among anime as a separate category to movies

I was a fan of him in "Parenthood."

I do the opposite. I see them as something beyond just anime. I hear "anime" and my mind goes more toward garbage like Sailor Moon and Dragonball.
