    I’m doing a bunch of oldies that people don’t seem to know about but are our family faves: Soapdish (Sally Field, Kevin Kline, Elisabeth Shue), Murphy’s Romance (Sally Field, James Garner), Max Dugan Returns (Jason Robards, Marsha Mason, Donald Sutherland, Matthew Broderick), and Six Weeks (Dudley Moore, Mary Tyler Moore, HEARTBREAKING). And, of course, My Cousin Vinny forevah.

    The Lion in Winter–Peter O’Toole, Katherine Hepburn, Young Anthony Hopkins, delicious!
    To Kill a Mockingbird–Gregory Peck as the epitome of conscience! Told by a girl called Scout!
    Fried Green Tomatoes–Tawanda!
    The Emperor’s New Groove==Yay! I’m a llama again! Wait………..
    Sam Elliott because Sam Elliott. Also, Sean Connery. Yes, I know the issues, but that voice. Wowzer.

    Love The Family Man! Not movies, but The Durrells in Corfu and Parade’s End are life-alteringly good. Best kiss ever is North & South. Truly Madly Deeply is lovely. Eddie the Eagle is a pretty good family movie. Casanova with Sienna Miller is fun. A movie I’ve seen more than ten times is Priceless with Audrey Tautou. Oh, next-to-best-kiss ever Under the Greenwood Tree. Wait, also best kiss ever Firelight. Best pining for Jonny Lee Miller Mansfield Park.

        And I just spent a week watching everybody else’s movies and they weren’t good. Only mine. I’m saying that in a cheerful public service kind of way. Which is kinder than boringly unbearable which is what I wanted to say.

    Did anyone mention Michael with John Travolta (as an unrefined angel) and Andie MacDowell. I’ll watch the whole movie, which I love, for the very last scene of Michael dancing with a ghostly Jean Stapleton. Another good one that I’ve never seen mentioned elsewhere is Three Came Home (it’s a true WWII female POW camp story that is SO uplifting, with Claudette Colbert. Or try not to cry (both sad and happy tears) watching Penny Serenade with Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. I actually have a copy of this and the next one, Since You Went Away, with a stellar cast: Claudette Colbert again, Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotton, a teenaged Shirley Temple and a lot of others you’ll recognize. Portrait of Jennie, a Selznic film featuring his wife, Jennifer Jones, and Joseph Cotton. In case you couldn’t tell, I love Jennifer Jones! It all started with the 1945 Love Letters. This may be my all time favorite movie. Ms. Jones and Mr. Cotton again in a romantic movie with a couple of twists. And lastly, although both Kevin Costner and Russel Crowe did an admirable job portraying my favorite thief, there is NO comparison to Errol Flynn’s Robin Hood!

    Late to this party, but Family Stone, The Holiday, French Kiss in which Kevin Kline speaks French so well my Hubby a native French speaker thought he was French. The Scarlet Pimpernel with Anthony Andrews and Jane Seymour, fun for all ages! Always love Anything Jane Austin, pride and prejudice with Colin firth, Sense and Sensibility. The Court Jester, Snowball Express and the original animated Grinch…..

    My absolute 3 faves are Back to the Future, Splendor in the Grass, and Urban Cowboy. I do love so many of the ones you listed – Goodfellas was an indulgence for many years. Of course, there are tons more that I just love: The Sound of Music & Mary Poppins (the one with Julie Andrews), When Harry Met Sally, American Grafitti, Terms of Endearment and of course Shawshank Redemption and Forrest Gump are two of the most well laid out movies ever! Throw in Grease and Heathers! I also LOVE all the John Hughes movies of the 80s. When my son was little he LOVED the movie Cars and I have to agree the first one is pure gold (but it is essentially the same movie as Doc Hollywood) but the creativity of everything relating to cars was really something as well. It is still a fave and one of the few kids movies I never tired of.

    I love the 1940’s Pride & Prejudice with Greer Garson & Laurence Olivier.

    Imagine living in a time when it was an insult to you for someone to say:

    ” I send no compliments to your mother”

    I suggest the comedies after the sad/weird movies.

    Crazy Rich Asians
    Benjamin Button
    Vanilla Sky
    Wedding Crashers
    Now You see Me
    Random Harvest

    and I concur with About Time, Age of Adeline, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings movies and Oh Brother Where art Thou.

    If you like Matt Damon, you have to watch Hereafter. It’s a lovely movie with beautiful music. You will love it!

    My Christmas favorites are “The Bishop’s Wife” – 1947 it always brings a happy tear to my eye, “Christmas In Connecticut”- 1945, with Barbara Stanwyck and a bunch of other wonderful veteran actors, “White Christmas”-1954, with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. Crosby and Kaye doing the “Sisters” dance number is one of the silliest and funniest things I’ve ever seen. And it’s so obvious the two of them had a great time doing it. And lastly, the ubiquitous “A Christmas Story”, mainly because it reminds me of my childhood (I’m ancient).
    Other than movies, there is a marvelous childrens’ opera written by Gian Carlo Menotti called “Amahl and the Night Visitors”. It’s a beautiful story about a stopover the three wise men make on their way to see the newborn Christ Child.
