    Top 20 favorite Movies, more or less

    I liked this from elsewhere (orientalplane ), and there was something similar, but I want to know what GSers think most of all - after all GS is the coolest

    It was hard to come up with just 20 -

    The Jerk
    The Princess Bride
    African Queen
    Blue Velvet
    Eat Drink Man Woman
    Young Frankinstien
    Spirited Away
    Amadeus
    Wild At Heart
    Beauty and the Beast - diz
    Citizen Cane
    Finding Nemo
    The Changeling
    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
    Spinal Tap
    Ringu
    Greese
    Trainspotting
    Apocalypse Now
    2001 Space Odyssey

    I could easily go to 50, but I don't want to be TMI guy again

    What with all the serious "stuff" going on I am trying to get some relief. This has probably been here before.

    ETA, I might even have to say (honorable Mention ) Donald Duck iIn Mathmagic Land, that just stands out in my memory as really cool.

    EETA - to not take away from CzarinaAnya's great list, I must add Somewhere In Time, I can't believe that didn't come to mind

    Of course the Disney version because only in a Disney movie does one figure out a triple jump, give up Harvard, defy one's mother, navigate the landmine that is regional figure skating comps, get the guy AND meet Michelle Kwan... all in a school year... fabulous!

    I havn't seen Man Woman... its never at the video store and when it was on cable, the time conflicted with All My Children on soapnet... hey, a girl must have her priorities... But I've added it to my netflicks account, so I'll let you know how much I like it!
