    Hey guys,

    We all have those movies we saw a long time ago but still could watch it every day. So, lets see what the RJs think is worth watching.

    Mine is a tie since I really couldnt decide:
    Dinotopia

    I used to think Dinotopia could really exist.icon_biggrin.gif

    The 10th Kingdom

    I was never able to view the whole thing, but I loved every minute of it.

    My favorite film is sort of a three-way tie between Days of Heaven, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

    Since Days of Heaven is the pretty one, here's the trailer.




    By the way, I loved The 10th Kingdom when I saw it in seventh grade. I bought it on DVD for like $4 a year ago and couldn't make it through the first half. But it was what introduced me to Dianne Wiest, John Laroquette, and Ann-Margret, so I owe it for that.

    Network (1976)

    Best screenplay ever written.





    What I consider to be the best speech in film history:



    Beatrice Straight, one of the most overlooked actresses in American cinema, gives a performance in a 4 minute scene (roughly her total screen time for the movie), which earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress:

    Sometimes it's The Night of the Iguana, sometimes it's Smile (the one from 1975 about the Young American Miss beauty pageant). Sometimes it's The Serpent's Egg, sometimes it's Barry Lyndon. Hard to pick just one for me. There's a bunch of others that might be in contention as well, like Smiles of a Summer Night and Duck Soup and Spartacus.

    Donnie Darko - Always enjoyed this movie. Its clever,witty, dark and memorable. A different approach to a troubled superhero. The 80s soundtrack was also a nice touch.

    I've always quietly observed from the sidelines, and avoided getting involved in forums, but in this case I'll make an exception. This is without question my favorite movie in life. Anytime I have an opportunity to introduce it to others, I do, in hopes that they may see some of the beauty in it that I do every time I watch it.

    Local Hero (1983), written and directed by Bill Forsyth, starring Burt Lancaster, Peter Riegert, Denis Lawson, and Fulton MacKay. A charming, character-driven comedy with subtle, nuanced performances, gorgeous scenery (filmed on the northern coast of Scotland), and a brilliant score by Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits. To paraphrase one reviewer, it is a comedy, but at the same time it is almost always teetering on the edge of sadness and heartbreak.




    Hope some of you guys might give this film a view and find some enjoyment in it. icon_smile.gif
