I've just met a screenplay writer who said it's very hard to catch a story people can remember for long time. I think a good screenplay should deliver somthing insulted in people's soul and entertain appetite.
What's your favourate movie? why it is special?

I love A Beautiful Mind with Russel Crowe. One of the most profound movies I've ever seen and it gets even more so with each watch.

Hard to say....depends on my age when I saw it. The Blob frightened the hell out of me ....I saw it when I was six. So it depends on many variables as to what I put up as the most impressive.

Russell Crowe is a putz. I really enjoyed It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

Never managed the entire movie, it was a waste of film and time.

He may a putz be; but the were speaking of a here man named RUSSEL Crowe not RUSSELL.


regarding the film Mad, Mad... it's highly over adored. Has 1/2 good and 1/2 bad. Takes too long, becomes too unbelievable, unrealistic, unfunny. I've seen it 3 times fully, by the end I'm watching the clock and even thinking about paste it becomes that irritating. Car drive scene to the park and treasure takes far far too lenghty a time. The entire film can be redone in half the time.

my take as well. Many a movie seems fantastic, great, grand in a first view, later is dull as a dead light bulb. Same reverse happens where I see part or whole movie, and am bored, unimpressed/spired. Later even a year later, that same movie, (viewed again when a friend insists), can be uplifting and enjoyable, energizing, exactly what I wanted. A year later it's a bust again. Variables.


Even my favorites in the years have times they can't attach me. I speak of Marty, Carousel, Days of Wine and Roses, The 300 Spartans, The Big Country, The Teahouse of the August Moon ...

A perfect movie to me would be the 1982 French film "The Return of Martin Guerre." The screenplay was an important element because it conveyed multiple themes (the ambiguities of society, property, family, law, religion, marriage, and love). The cinematography was great and the sets recreated a fifteenth century French village with accuracy. Gerard Depardieu and Natalie Baye were both very moving as the lead characters. I even loved the music written for the film.

@weiwei,
Walt Disney's film Fantasia comes to mind. It was amazing for 1940. I love classical music, and it was superb.

Don't believe everything you hear--although it's no surprise to see that you're gullible.

I mostly enjoyed comedies, but also enjoyed movies with Roy Rogers, Rocketman, John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, Glenn Ford, Jimmie Stewart, Doris Day, Sessue Hayakawa, Jack Lemmon, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, Marlon Brando, Johnny Depp, Clint Eastwood, Kirk Douglas, Steve McQueen, Marx Brothers, Jack Nicholson, and probably a few others.

Gone with the Wind
A Few Good Men
The 5th Element
Moulin Rouge
