Final Cut with Ray Winstone, was mid 90s I think, left the cinema in total awe.

Possibly Pan's Labrynth.

American Beauty

American Beauty is a good choice

Moulin Rouge - and I'm not even sure if I have spelt that right! But I do love it - it is my first choice to watch when DH is out for the evening and I can sing along with nobody knowing!

Gone With The Wind. Have loved it since I first saw it age 7 or so. Just hearing the opening theme gives me goosebumps.

Snooks14 Sat 10-Apr-10 20:25:18

Gone with the wind is also one of my favourites but I found the book was so much better than the film - if you ever get the chance you must read the book.

The Color Purple

I think

Very hard to choose just one

Alfie michael cains version though jude laws was not so good

the sound of music

Spanglish - love it

Snooks14, have read the book a few times and you're totally spot on. I think it's the most gripping novel I've ever read, I couldn't put it down! And once you've read it you realise how very well cast the film was. I mean, Clark Gable is Rhett Butler.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Volver or Betty Blue or Schindlers List, too hard to chose just one

Well its not the best but it is my favourite - Twilight blush.

My top 2 films never change but I can't decide between them -

Jaws
Withnail and I

I must say I am chuffed and impressed with the quality of all the choices so far!

Spidermama Thu 29-Apr-10 10:36:16

My top three, which I can watch over and over again, are, in no particular order ....

What's Eating Gilbert Grape.

American Beauty.

When We Were Kings.

Clary Thu 29-Apr-10 10:37:45

Casablanca. I can't watch it now tho as I know it virtually off by heart.

Not seen some of the ones on here! But LOL @ miawallace's choice grin

spaceforthree Fri 30-Apr-10 16:00:37

Goodfellas
The Godfather
and Twilight biscuit- can't choose but I'd watch any over and over again!
