Favourite Films?

Posted , 10 users are following.

Following on from the "one thing you cannot do without" how about What is your favourite film and why.  You know that one film that you can watch over and over again.  Come on Fibro Folk get those thinking caps on and let's have a "film night" discussion.  I can no longer sit through a film at the cinema as I would seize up completely but it doesn't stop me watching in the comfort of my own home.

    Hey maggers I love films. It's hard to pick just one that I will watch over and over again. But if I really had to choose I guess I would say Green Mile with Tom Hanks. Every time I watch it, it still makes me cry over John Coffee. There are a few other films I could mention, but you asked for only one. Have a peaceful day X

    For me it has to be 'It's A Wonderful Life'. I save all my Christmas gift wrapping to do while watching with a box of chocs and a steaming mug of cocoa

    Okay then, here goes.

    1. As I said Green Mile with Tom Hanks. Not only because Tom Hanks is such a good actor and is great in this, but because the story is so poignant. The man gets wrongly accused, arrested and put on death row for the murder of two children. It makes me cry every time I watch it.

    2. Brigadoon with Gene Kelly. It is a film about a town that only appears one day every hundred years. Also about true love and how with true love anything is possible. When I was a child I had a huge crush on Gene Kelly and was determined that when I grew up I would marry him smile

    3. Beauty and the Beast. Disney film. It is my all time favourite Disney film. I love the songs, the characters and the plot. Maybe it's the true love conquering all thing again. Am I soppy or what? Lol

    4. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. A film about an autistic child coming to terms with the loss of his father in the 9/11 tragedy. Very powerful, thought provoking film. Again with Tom Hanks, but he only has a small part.

    5. Last, but by no means least, Premonition with Sandra Bullock. A film about a woman who has a premonition about her husbands death and her struggle to save him. Very intense film. I love Sandra Bullock in this film. I could go on about more of my favourite films and why. I do have a lot of favourites. I could watch films for a living. Films beat soaps any day in my humble opinion. X

      Amazing ever thought of a job as a film critic? Seems you love a film with a  moral undercurrent with strong true characters.

      Couldn't agree more with the comment on soaps.

    Hi Maggers

    I enjoy watching Toy Story 1 and 2 especially with my kids. I can't wait for Guardian of the Galaxy to come out on DVD, that is one I wouldn't mind watching again. I like to watch anything with a bit of fun and calming.
