there's loads of movies I really love but can never remember the title of. old black and white movies and big hollywood gaudiest technicolour movies. oh and i have to add dead men don't wear plaid to my list and the jerk. and the man with two brains. and housesitter and private benjamin. and ghostbusters and the breakfst club and pretty in pink and battle beyond the stars. the ladykillers (original), passport to pimlico, the abyss, american werewolf in london, gremlins, barefoot in the park, fun with dick and jane (original), barbarella, the time bandits, the life of brian, a slew of french movies starring alain delon, bullit, midnight cowboy, midnight express, the piano, a zed and two noughts, the cannonball run, Giant, cat on a hot tin roof, cool hand luke, from here to eternity.

naming one movie throws up so many more in my minds eye. and i like them all for different reasons, could be the cinematography or the stars or the memory of where i was and who with when i watched it. sometimes i see these movies again and like an old school friend they've become dull and longwinded and you just wish they'd never come back, but sometimes they seem fresh as the first time but you find more in them because age has given you a better life perspective.

I thought That Thing You Do! was a really charming movie. I haven't found many other people who liked it though. I think the movie really worked on a lot of levels.

Goodfellas
Saving Private Ryan
The Punisher
Waiting...

I've wrestled with this question for a while: Is, or would you consider, Band of Brothers a movie or a TV show? I say movie due to its length and budget, but I say TV show because it was...well...on TV.

I think Band of Brothers would fall into the mini-series category and, aside from Lonesome Dove and Roots, there is very little in that category that is remotely watchable.
