Hmmm, lets see...some of my favorites are Casablanca, Funny Face, Moulin Rouge, Newsies, Labrynth, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Down With Love.

Netflix sent me Gone With The Wind a few months ago but I haven't been able to get myself to watch it yet. I've never seen it, but I never seem to be in the mood to watch such a long movie.

Oooh yes! I love the Green Mile!! It's a very sad movie and shines a new light on capital punishment and how unjust it can be. We studied this movie in high school along with the Shawshank Redemption which is just fantastic.

Other movies? I love Grease (I can just about song the songs word for word) and also Stand By Me which I also studied in high school. Yes, we did a lot of movie study. I think older Disney movies are worthy of a mention, after all, I grew up with them and some of them are "tales as old as time". I like Beauty and the Beast the most!

And I do like the Sound of Music!

I am a very old movies fan. I love John Wayne movies, I am a Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant fan as well. I watch old movies everynight. I think if I am not watching the History Channel, AZN (Asian Network), or Anime on Demand, then I am watching TCM and AMC.

Many old movies such as Holiday, Red River, Meet Me in St. Louis, and more are more plot and character stories than [censored by McNish], blood, and all action. I am also more of a fan of black and white they seem more interesting than anything.

Disney Classics. Specially Beauty and the beast!

I really like the old Disney movies, and I also love any of the old musicals with Judy Garland.
