This has had a long run recently at:

http://www.able2know.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=18763

Unfortunately as they are working on the design and function of the site over the past months I cannot feature anything. Otherwise, Letty's thread would have been featured.

But let's play the game -- it is Oscar tonight!

Blade Runner
2001: A Space Odyssey
A Clockwork Orange
Things to Come
The Red Shoes
To Kill a Mockingbird
On the Watefront

...there are actually so many which is why I'd be submitting a list of more than one hundred films.

My Cousin Vinny was a movie I got dragged to. I thought I was going to hate it, a mindless bit of cinematic drivel. I loved it.

I return again and again to foreign language films for their profound conceptions of life:

The Gardens of the Finzi-Continis
Night of the Shooting Stars
L'Aventura
The Rules of the Game
Tokyo Story
Woman in the Dunes (some of the most haunting imagery in all of film history)
Rififi
The Bicycle Thief
La Strada
Ran

again, on and on...

I liked it, but felt it inferior to the Life of Brian, or the Holy grail.

farmerman, Did you know that "Last of the Mohicans" was filmed at Chimney Rock Park in North Carolina? My brother took me there when we attended his son's wedding in 1993. The reception was held at the Biltmore Estate.

ci, I lived near asheville in a town called Spruce Pine when I was doing some prospecting for Lithium ore in the 80s. i love that area of the planet.

I cant believe that everybodys movies are ones they can watch over and over. That takes a special movie for me. 2 morte that I can watch are
The Christmas Story (Jean Shephards narrative)

Witness- cause I live near where the movie was shot.
