Songfactor's Top 10 Movies {DRAMA}

Recommended Posts

I cannot think of another I'd like to nominate, because I'm much more of a comedy person. So when that rolls around, I'm armed for bear.

I did, however, really love the Movie Gilbert Grape.

So I'll with "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" as my second, and thanks to either MC or Farin, whichever one suggested it. :)

Because they're not what you would classify as this type of drama?

Sorry, I'm too lazy to go through these posts.

Apologies to the many that I could not vote for. I think many will qualify for other categories, so hopefully I'll be able to vote for them there. :P

yes, basically...

I just tried to think what kind of films I would expect when I'd read a list called "the Top 10 Dramas"

of course that's just my personal view/opinion :)

1. Tombstone (for Val Kilmer's performance alone)

2. Forrest Gump (of course!)

3. What's Eating Gilbert Grape? Johnny Depp Leonardo DiCaprio, and Juliette Lewis were magnifico!!

4. Fargo ~ dark humor's perfection

5. Gone With The Wind ~ only epic film I've watched over 5 times through its entirety

6. Dances With Wolves ~ Kevin Costner before he got full of himself

7. Short Cuts ~ loved the style of this one. I will now have to rent it again to reacquaint myself with it.

8. Shawshank Redemption ~ I would say for Morgan Freeman alone, but it was just a solid film all around.

9. Primal Fear ~ Love love love Edward Norton. Creepy.

10. Good Will Hunting ~ Matt Damon is worthy of watching on a bad day, but on the day this movie came about, he was outstanding.

Actually it was almost entirely true, other than the dates were wrong, Pesci's character was a lot younger in real life and they changed the names to avoid costs.
