The movie thread
 
Just a thread to spred the word about some great movies you've seen.

I'll start by telling you about a French movie called Amelie. Absolutely delightfully charming about a young French woman who decides that she'll make other people's lives better. And the soundtrack is glorious as well.

Any movies you've seen that you've loved?

Fist of the North Star, the anime movie
it's really something you kind of have to see to believe

Oldie but goodie: Grumpy old men! (This movie is like chicken soup for me. Ive even watched it in the bath tub after a rough day)

I have been watching many of the past years' Oscar nominated films and quite enjoying them. I've gotten through these so far:

Wolf of Wall St
Nebraska
Captain Philips
Dallas Buyers Club
Gravity
Blue Jasmine

on deck:

Frozen
Great Gatsby
12 Years a Slave
Desolation of Smaug
Philomena

Also recently saw The Artist, which won the previous year. And we rewatched Capote after Hoffman passed away.

Totally agree about Amelie.

Last few movies that I really liked:
Cloud Atlas
Harold and Maud

(I'm not a movie buff - MrS selects movies that he knows I will like :p. So I rarely have to watch anything "meh" - unless Dude selects it. He has really truly terrible taste, although I did enjoy Rush.)

Oh! They don't have to be poly movies? (Not that I don't have a few poly favorites.)

Jeezh, I wouldn't know where to begin, so many movies are near and dear to my heart.

I watched "12 Years a Slave" a few weeks ago, and was impressed. On a related note I watched "Lincoln" (Daniel Day-Lewis) maybe a year ago and was surprised at how much I liked it. Speaking of Daniel Day-Lewis I watched "There Will Be Blood" a few years ago, and would watch it again anytime. What a main character!

I'll just follow this thread and see what other favorites it calls to mind ...

My favorite movie is The Fountain. It has Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz! It is such a beautiful movie and I cry every time. I don't watch it often for that reason. I normally like science fiction.

For some reason I found "Cinema Paradiso" (1988) to be a tear-jerker. "The Other Sister" (1999) and "I Am Sam" (2001) affected me that way even though I know they got mixed reviews from other viewers.

The other sister made me tear up a bit. It's been awhile since I've seen it.

Great movie. Sure it's a little after-school-special-ish, and for some reason it gets on some viewers' nerves, but it's one of my all-time faves.
