    Its free.

    Simply write down your last favorite 10-20 movies. When one or more people have a match a conversation will be encouraged to ensue regarding but not limited to the movie.

    I will be glad to accept suggestion about the club but please remember it is my idea and I am the boss.

    I recently watched Dances with Wolves.
    I'm sorry I waited so long to do so, great movie.
    Should be on my list.
    Goodfellas is another one.
    I'm sure others are like this, but even though I own it and can watch it whenever I want, uncut, I tend to overlook it (and other movies), but when I flip channels and find it on, I end up watching it.

    I thought Cher did a great job in Mask, and Eric Stoltz is one of my favorite actors.
    Add it to my list.

    I liked Pulp and Coo-coos nest, could not follow English Patient but should try again.

    I have heard The Best of Youth is good and The Lives of Others goes on List with Il Postino.

    How can I forget Forrest Gump....

    My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."

    "Yes. Well, I-I don't know. Sometimes it would stop raining long enough for the stars to comeout... and then it was nice. It was like just before the sun goes to bed down on the bayou. There was always a million sparkles on the water... like that mountainlake. It was so clear, Jenny, it looked likethere were two skies one on top of the other. And then in the desert, when the sun comes up, I couldn't tell where heaven stopped and the earth began. It's so beautiful."


    I learned so much with this movie.....

    Ishbel,

    Legends of the Fall.....great fly fishing if I remember ?
    Gran Torino....good one.
    One flew over the cuckoo's nest.....Jack's best acting.

    Thank you so much, I read the article. Yes, this is the movie....the scenes are out of this world.
    This must go on the list.

    The other day I watched "Of mice and men" , it was sad, he killed his own brother ?
    Last night I watched "A few good men", Jack says, "You want the truth.....you can't handle the truth".
    Marlon Brando played in Sayanara the other night as well, he always had this heavy accent as if he had mashed potatoes in his mouth....as well as the Godfather....more mashed potatoes. But he can act.

    Now Morgan Freeman in Shawshank did his best acting in that drama.

    Yes, the cinematography is excellent.

    Another great one I forgot.
    Also, he and Jack are awesome in The Bucket List.
    My list is growing.

    To be honest I was not crazy about Bucket List but Shawshank was great.

    Green mile was alot of fun and I really liked Hopkins in The World Fastest Indian.

    Manda Bala from Brazil was very interesting.

    Thanks for contributing to the club. It is now a collective with all members equal in all respects.

    Thanks for mentioning Mice and Men, I remember that from 40 years back and want to see again.

    Slingblade was another good one.

    Naked gun was hilarious and I enjoy Mr. Bean too.

    If you have not seen "Death at a funeral"....well I watched it , that was funny too. There are some scenes where the laughing hurt.

    I have a few more....what are your opinions ?

    The great Escape
    Gladiator
    Unforgiven
    Good will Hunting
    Ben Hur
    Spartacus
    Casino Royale
    The Usual Suspect (the only movie that kept me guessing who did it right to the end)
    Master and Commander

    What do you think ?

    I liked The Great Escape and I think I had Good Will Hunting mixed up with the Shawshank redemption. Which movie has the warden popping himself in the end?

    The Great Escape is, well, great.
    Gladiator is another good movie. I made a point of watching it once we got the 40" lcd.
    Unforgiven is a great Eastwood movie, but I still like The Outlaw Josie Wales the best, so wedge it into my list.
    Master and Commander was good, but I don't think I'd add it to my personal favorites.

    Perhaps my friends would tolerate a little talk about favorite actors too.

    Russel Crowe is one of mine and I like him in 4:10 to Yuma.

    Morgan Freeman is very good also but I think it cheapens his image when he appears in movies that are not that good.

    Willem DeFoe is good too.
