Godfather 2

anyone found it wasn't for them

(this thread could be really short grin)

DumbledoresGirl Mon 27-Oct-08 18:44:29

Sound of Music.

UpJacobscreek Mon 27-Oct-08 18:47:04

Never seen Godfather

I nominate

The shawshank redemption.

Merlin Mon 27-Oct-08 18:47:36

No, no, no. The best film EVER is .......

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang smile

Merlin Mon 27-Oct-08 18:48:03

(Although Shawshank is a close second!)

LostProphet Mon 27-Oct-08 18:48:07

not seen godfather 2.

Sound Of Music is a godawful dull film.

Any more?

Lauriefairycake Mon 27-Oct-08 18:48:10

I agree with both of you.

also pretty sure people would agree on 'When harry met sally' - the original (and imo, the best) romantic comedy

LostProphet Mon 27-Oct-08 18:48:33

Chitty and Shawshank I love

(although Chitty loses points for scariness)

Lauriefairycake Mon 27-Oct-08 18:48:43

I don't like chitty, scared of the child catcher hmm

Tillyscoutsmum Mon 27-Oct-08 18:49:53

Love Shawshank

The Godfather films aren't really my thing, but I can appreciate that they are good films, iyswim

NCbirdy Mon 27-Oct-08 18:49:53

The colour purple? (For very different reasons to the above though nach!)

Sparkletastic Mon 27-Oct-08 18:49:58

Withnail and I - always and forever number 1 in my affections grin

Not keen on the godfather but DH would divorce me if i told him.

I nominate Pretty Woman.

I love sound of music and chitty and oliver.

TotalChaos Mon 27-Oct-08 18:51:18

oh yes to Godfather. and NOOOO to Pretty Woman.

LostProphet Mon 27-Oct-08 18:51:51

Shawshank is the only one DH has agreed with me on so far

ElfOnTheTopShelf Mon 27-Oct-08 18:52:49

My list of fab films include

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (is like a family film given that is the family name!)

The Rock (Mr Connery and Mr Cage... need I say more)

National Treasure (I have seen this soooo many times)

The Story of Us (the ultimate love/relationship film imo, and I still cry, despite seeing it loads of times!!)

DumbledoresGirl Mon 27-Oct-08 18:55:58

Chitty cannot be the best film ever because of those irritating high pitched screamy voices those children have. It genuinely gets on my nerves listening to them after an hour or so.

What is wrong with the Sound of Music? hmm

MrsGhoulofGhostbourne Mon 27-Oct-08 18:56:25

Dead men don't wear Plaid
Dead Calm
The Thin Man
Brief Encounter
Ghost Busters
Betty Blue
Les Visiteurs

Lauriefairycake Mon 27-Oct-08 19:00:54
