Favorite Movies

I wanted this blog to be lists and then I try to make these definitive lists of my favorite movies, and I become stymied. Some movies I love some movies so much for about two months or so and then two years later I can’t remember why I liked it. I think a favorite movie needs to last in your mind and stay meaningful to you. So they are not only meaningful to you at the time, they hang on and insist you see them again and again. Some movies that I feel that way to me are listed below. More will come to me later, by the way.
Gigi 1958 (I don’t know why)
Broadcast News 1987
Ordinary People 1980
Reds 1981
The Princess Bride, 1987
Pride and Prejudice (A&E version) 1996
You Can Count on Me 2000

What is one of your favorite movies?

My favorite movies are wayyy not so deep like yours are. Mine are mainly fluff, and non-thinking ones.

-Pretty Woman
-Ever After
-Sweet Alabama
-Indiana Jones movies
-Star Wars movies
-Erin Brokovich

I don't know about deep -- what about gigi? -- maybe not all with happy endings and have you seen You Can Count on Me? It's so great. Thanks for posting -- somebody is actually reading this thing :)

I love You Can Count On Me as well. We have it and I watch it at least a few times a year.
