I watch Grease at least once a week. One time at school, we were in music. Ms Smith our teacher said, next lesson we could have a free lesson and watch a video. She said "What do you want to watch?" Everyone started shouting out random movies so I waited until it had calmed down a bit and I shouted "Grease!!" Everyone went mad!! They were like: "Oh my god Grease yes. Grease yes definately. Oh wow I wanna watch Grease!!" I was like calm down it's only a movie.

But it's a really good one at that /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I love old musicals, especially Cover Girl with Rita Hayworth and Gene Kelley and West Side Story. Some other old movies I love are The Quiet Man and It's a Mad, mad, mad, mad world and of course To Kill a Mockingbibrd (Gregory Peck is incredible).

Oh, and I agree with whoever said Jaws. Awesome movie and definitely a classic.

Ah, Greece. My Muggle school did that play this last year, and it was awesome. I watched the movie just so I could compare it to the play... and I actually liked the play better. XD; No offense to anyone.

The Neverending Story was a good movie, although that little kid reading the book annoyed me to no end, heh. But I really liked the movie overall... as a matter of fact, I kind of want to watch it now. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

"It's a Wonderful Life", "My Cousin Vinny", "10 Things I Hate About You", "To Catch a Theif", and "The Road to Eldorado" are all some of my favorites. I know there's more, but I can't think of them right now...

I love old movies. Ghost is a good romantic movie. It's really good. But some where really boring parts.

Most old movies are really good, but I don't get to see a lot (and I would love to see more). One of my favourite movies of all time would have to be Grease - it's simply a classic in my opinion!

I have a lot of favorite old movies. Some of them are musicals, though, like Singin' in the Rain, Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Pirates of Penzance. The others aren't that old: My Cousin Vinny, Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, and some others. Like I said, I have a lot of favorite old movies /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

And now I have to add The Pink Panther movies, the originals, the classics, the one with Peter Sellers in them.

Labyrinth was my favourite as a kid.

Everyone should see the 10th kingdom. It's a great story, long but worth it!!

I recently saw "An Affair to Remember" the original version and I can't help to agree every other hopeless romantic out there, that is one best romantic movies of the genre, that movie being in the top 3 of that particular list.

Other good movies,

The Rear Window,
North by Northwest,
Gone with the Wind,
The Matrix,
Willy Wonka and Chocolate Factory,
Robin Hood - Men in Tights and
History of the World, Part 1.

So many favorites for me. Mostly historical, with war and all that goes with it, but a few that aren't. I LOVE Titanic (Ioan Gruffudd as an officer... hehe),

Have you seen any of the Horatio Hornblower series that was on television. If you like historical and Ioan Gruffudd you'd probably like them as well.
