The One Movie you Can't Live without...and Why?

So...If you knew you were going to die tomorrow....and on your list was to see your favorite movie...what would it be. ONLY ONE.

I think above all others for me it would be "Lady Sings the Blues" starring Diana Ross and Billie Dee Williams(1973).

Why: This movie emotionally moves me all over the board. Good acting, Good Music, I laugh, I cry, I'm sad, I am happy. I go through triumph, and defeat. All around, I can't get enough of it....it's the ultimate Love Story too. This movie is the one i would want to watch before i died.

Mine would easily be Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation. I just watched this movie for the 8th time the other night and I NEVER tire of it. Just love it so much.It is like a tonic for me, when ever I'm feeling a bit down, I put it on and I feel instantly happy after watching it I think the on-screen chemistry between Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray is one of the best I have ever seen.

"Lost in translation" would be my 'last resort' if I had poor sleep




I couldn't pick one film, btw.

Good Will Hunting always hooks me in pretty deep. I have trouble turning that one off if I accidentally watch the start. That and Boogie Nights.

Steel Magnolias

Hilariously funny and thoughtful at the same time. About hope and - diminished hope. About life and how to get on if life screwed you once again. The funniest movie ever to make you you cry. Great talent - in screenwriting, directing, editing, cutting, and acting. And Sam is in it, that helps, too

Close second choice - Ordinary People.

Legally Blonde (with Reese Witherspoon)
Red Eye

and I'm sure "Domino" will be one of them

It would be Magnolia or Gods and monsters... great cast and even greater performances

To answer the question, euhh I don't need movies to stay alive

We are what we are - forever live or die
Don't tell me how to act - how to be - how to live
I am what I am from beginning to the end

Magnolia...simply because it's brilliant.

Ghost World- Because...I don't know. I just absolutely love this movie. It's so funny...yet sad.

Evita- Best musical ever.

I'm easily predictable when it comes to cinema
Gods and Monsters is one of the best films you can ever see it's about James Whale's life, the director of terror films such as Bride of Frankenstein, etc.
The cast is one of the best I've ever seen, Ian McKellen makes a perfect work, even Brendan Frasier (who plays Whale's gardener) is fantastic in a drala role
But the best of all was Lynn Redgrave as Whale's maid...
