One of my all-time favourites has to be THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION. I like many others too .... especially THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy.
Re: guilty pleasure movies by George on 8 August 2005 7:11pm
Oh yes, Shawshank Redemption, Godfather I, and one of the greats, Dirty Dozen.

Oh yes, The Professional is definitely a movie that requires multiple viewings! Gary Oldman is just sublime in his scenery-chewing performance. Another favourite starring Gary is Immortal Beloved, in which he plays Beethoven. How he wasn't Oscar nominated for this role, I'll never know!

Police Academy is another fave, not before it's an example of top-shelf filmmaking, but because it's stupid and bloody funny! The series went downhill after the first movie, but Captain Harris was always a high point!

Ummm, what else?

Oh yeah, Camelot with Richard Harris! It never got the recognition it deserved!

I could waffle on for hours but that'll do for now! :o)

Missy, I still cry every time I watch that version of "Camelot". Our Arthur was such a hunky, sexy king and Geneviere a complete jerk. I don't know about you, but I could really feel the passion of the characters. And the scene when Arthur met with her after he sent her to the nunnery---
oh, the agony in my heart for them...

Absolutely, Patty! Geneviere and Lancelot were weak and they deserved each other! Lance spent most of the movie in tears or very close to it! How Jenny chose him over Arthur.. well, it beats me! I would gladly take Jenny's place alongside Richard, er, King Arthur any day of the week! ;) Don't you love the mascara and the blue eyeshadow, Patty? Dumbledore could have used some of that too, hehehe!

"A rouuuuund table!"

I love Shrek & Shrek 2 - it's very clever how the humour works on so many levels, so that kids and adults can both watch it but with different understandings. It reminds me of the old Captain Pugwash cartoons when I was little, with its principal characters of Master Bates, Seaman Staines and Roger the cabin boy. How innocent we were in those days!

Now that you mention it, Missy, he did wear alot of makeup. He was such a dream and Lance-baby was no match . Jenny was a jerk. lol

I watched The Avitator a few weeks back, great movie, Howard Hughes always fascinated me and I love any movies with Tracy and Hepburn in them but Seabiscuit is my favourite.
Re: guilty pleasure movies by LynneD on 12 August 2005 4:43pm
I liked THE AVIATOR too Mac. Haven't seen Camelot girls! Shrek, Shrek 2 & Finding Nemo ..... 3 great tales!
Re: guilty pleasure movies by canaveralgumby on 13 August 2005 2:25am
I loved "The Aviator." Superb movie. Leonardo DiCaprio, another person who gets made fun of a bit, but a fantastic actor. I got a real sense of the flying, and the CRASH! Glad I saw that on the big screen.

I visited the Puma Air Museum in AZ in June and saw the Constellation. I touched it and everything!
