Patch Adams is such a good movie! /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I think my faves would have to be, Goonies, Jaws, Peggy Sue Got Married, (for some weird reason I can watch this movie anytime over and over again) Stand By Me, basically lots and lots from the 80's, Jumangi, The Princess Bride, and so much more! /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Favorite classics? Well, The Secret Garden and The Little Princess are good, if you'd call them classics...and Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is definitely a reall good movie! Sound of Music and Mary Poppins are worth seeing and Home Alone...LOVE it! Oh yeah and Jurassic Park! That's all I can remember.

Watership Down. I've been watching that movie since I was but three years old, a little, impressionable child. Been watching that movie for 14 long years, so I've gotten really into it. It's an old movie from the 1970s, animated, but dang...best movie I've ever seen. It's truly amazing, a great movie, deep, involved, awesome music. It's animated but is in *no* way a kid's movie...I wouldn't show kids that movie, as one of the scenes still gives me nightmares and I'm 17. It's an old movie but...it's my favorite. When I was really little I had such a crush on Hazel, lol.

Who agrees with me that "The Wedding Singer" is just a really cool romantic comedy (with Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler) I just watch it a lot of times and the soundtrack is pretty good all 80's. Another movie I love is "The little Princess" I think is a very touchable movie and it really shows inocence.

Being older than the vast majority of people here, I remember a lot of films that for others might sound positively ancient. But instead of rattling off a list, I only want to point out a little gem that you might ignore: the 1993 version of The Three Musketeers. It has next to nothing to do with the book, but counters with an excellent cast (Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, Oliver Platt, Chris O'Donnell, Tim Curry, Rebecca de Mornay, Michael Wincott, Julie Delpy, Gabrielle Anwar), lots of action and some real howling scenes. I've seen it dozens of times and still make time for it whenever it's on TV.

Blues Brothers!! Gosh, I love that movie. And, as far as black and white movies is concerned, I love Casablanca, though I haven't seen it in a long time.

The Sound of Music is an old movie that will always be a favorite for all ages. It's just classic and beautiful and one of the best movies ever made out there.

Definitely Benny and Joon!! That movie is so sweet!! I love when Sam makes his drumsticks dance, and when they make grilled cheese on the ironing board:) But also Edward Scissorhands, although I don't like the ending. I'm going to do a remake and have them live in the mansion happily ever after!!! And can't forget about Drop Dead Fred...I like it a lot, I don't know why..."pant's pie" anyone? /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Well, I don't know whether these could really be classified as classics but definitely Mary Poppins and the Sound of Music.
