Films

Another difficult subject, as there are just so many films that I love.  However, to get the discussion going I will list some of the films I can watch time and time again:

Kelly’s Heroes ~ Clint Eastwood

Victor, Victoria ~ Julie Andrews

Coming To America ~ Eddie Murphy

The Lady Killers ~ Peter Sellers

What are the films that you will always watch, no matter how old?

    I also love Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain. How adorable is Amelie?! Audrey Tautou is brilliant though anyway, I also liked her in A Very Long Engagement (Mark, I have that if you want to borrow).

    My favourite films include:

    * Lady Sings the Blues with Diana Ross. Just brilliant.
    * The Colour Purple by Alice Walker (Directed by Steven Spielberg)
    * Purple Rain – I STILL love the soundtrack to this movie and the eighties dress is always entertaining.

    Mark, as an aside, my favourites do not include: Dune 😉

      Another Amélie fan:) I agree that Audrey Tautou is excellent. Have you seen Coco Avant Chanel? The director of Amélie is also worth exploring – Delicatessen is another of his films. It’s quite a dark tale of a butcher’s shop, rather different!

        Thanks Cheryl, no I’ve not seen any of these two that you’ve mentioned. Like the sound of them both though. Will add to my wish list! 🙂

      • Thought of two more that I’d add to my list:
        “Fried Green Tomatoes ~ Kathy Bates” I can sit and watch this film every single time it comes on TV. The relationship between Ruth and Idgie brings me close to tears (and I don’t cry).

        “House of Flying Daggers ~ Zhang Ziyi” The first film I have watched where I was struck by the rich colours on the screen. Watching made me realise, for the first time, why someone would ooh and ahh at the depth of colour on screen.

    The first two are real oldies although there was a good remake of The End of the Affair a few years back. Live Forever is a Britpop film and Amélie Poulain has one of the best soundtracks ever. It’s a gentle story set in Paris 🙂

    Like you I probably have a long list but here are some of them:
    Brief Encounter
    The End of the Affair
    Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain
    Live Forever

    • I don’t immediately recognise all of the films in your list, so it looks like a Google search job when I get back home.
