Groundhog Day

Regarding Henry

Thelma And Louise

To Sir With Love

Saving Private Ryan

There are so many great movies I had to add part of Ron´s choice. I might add XXX´s (or Cheval Noir) list if he was still around...

"Small time crooks", Woody Allen. I saw it for the fifth time or so the other night...

My family is in the movie business so I grew with it (I even worked at some movies) and I used to watch at least two films a day. In theatres, there was no video by then. I love to go to the movies...

OOOh, I forgot "To Kill A Mockingbird". It is one of my favorites. One of the few movies which is actually as good as the book. The first time I saw that I fell madly in love with Gregory Peck.

TimLizzy, you are not a horrible person. I'm all about punching little kids. It helps them grow up without any false expectations of happiness or world peace.

I love the movie, by the way. Das says he is tall and wears glasses, so I have this vision in my mind that he looks like Gregory Peck. And you people wonder why I follow him around all day long.
