Default 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?

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
Captain Philips
Dallas Buyers Club
Blue Jasmine

on deck:

Great Gatsby
12 Years a Slave
Desolation of Smaug

Also recently saw The Artist, which won the previous year. And we rewatched Capote after Hoffman passed away.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley

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 . So I rarely have to watch anything "meh" - unless Dude selects it. He has really truly terrible taste, although I did enjoy Rush.)
JaneQ(Me): poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (25+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (7+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic hetero girlfriend and BFF
MrClean: hetero mono male, almost lover-friend to me, FWBs to SLeW, friends with MrS
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.

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 ...
