I just saw a thread about TV shows and I thought it would be fun to start a thread about which movies people rate as their top three. Here are mine....

Diary of a Mad Black Woman
Pride and Prejudice
Officer and a Gentleman

Edited to add.....It was hard to pick just three. I've seen some really good movies in my time, as I am sure most of you have, so it was tough to narrow it down.

Bringing Up Baby
Steel Magnolias
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Really almost impossible to only list three!

Oh geesh, am I the only old lady on here?

- Gone with the Wind, a classic that will never die!
- 12 Angry Men, a classic black and white that is a fabulous study in human nature, examining prejudices LONG before the term "politically correct" was ever thought up!
- Sunset Blvd, Gloria Swanson's greatest movie ever!
- Hunt for Red October (Sean Connery, need I say more! ahhhhhhhh!)

I HATE chic-flicks! Hate movies that throw a woman in there just so there's a woman in there (Top Gun is a prime example. Take the Kelley McGillis character out of the movie and you STILL have a great movie!). Hate movies where the special effects are SO obvious they don't even look like part of the movie.

Very hard (as everyone said) to narrow it down...

I loved
"The Wedding Singer" &
"Beaches"

My favorite genre is horror though...I like to be scared by a movie...and
the one that haunted me for weeks was "The Ring"...(the sequel stunk, btw).
I'm never afraid once a movie is over...I can sleep in the dark, be home alone, etc. with no problem.
Not this time...the final 10 minutes or so really did a number on me.

Awww, I love Shag! It is not a well known movie with anyone I know (except my bf).

Gone with the Wind (actually I'm with Debi on all her choices)
Stand By Me (a film I could watch on loop-tape)
Ground Hog Day/The Truman Show/Toy Story/Up! (Ok, I couldn't cut it down, sorry!)

Also LOVED the recent District 9 - anyone seen? Ooh, made me THINK!

icon_lol.gif I think my sister and I could quote the whole movie. Sometimes she comes over, I'll turn on Stagger Lee, one of us will say, "Put on your shaggin' shoes", and we'll all (me, sis, and our DDs) dance. Good times...good times....

I have to add THe Lion King. It's a great mom-movie. I cry everytime. I'm also the person who goes thru the mall singing Lion King songs .... out loud ... while my daughter is trying to hide behind the trash cans! icon_lol.gif

1. Love Actually
2. Psycho (took a Hitchcock class...best 4 hours of my week by far!)

*I loved a movie called "Man on Wire", documentary about the man who tight roped across the WTC in the 70's; truly amazing and I am not usually a documentary fan but I recommend it*

I'm a sucker for a romantic movie, but I've never seen Love Actually. I'll have to check it out since several of you have it in your favorites.
