harry potter and the sorcerer's stone....really, i think that movie has subliminal messages. every time it's on, i am COMPELLED to watch! it's wonderful...

but...the best comedy i've ever seen...is a three-way tie between "airplane!", "major league", and "office space."

Best comedy is either Sixteen Candles, Trading Places or M*A*S*H

Best film period...The Godfather I & II (since its such an obvious choice I'll pick an alternative) or The Idol Maker (anyone seen it?)

Saw The Godfather I yesterday and that must be one of the best movies for me.
BTW, the young Pacino... :hearts: (the old Pacino is BTW still very OK :drool: ) and even the not so young Marlon Brando was not bad either.
One of my favourites is Heat. That movie has such a great rhythm, awesome images and sound.

Ordinary People.

I can't give an exact reason why, just that whenever I see it I just think it's a really moving film.

Silence of the Lambs is another one I just loved - but as with almost everything the book is better.

Have you heard of Jacqueline Du Pre?? Perhaps the most gifted Cellist there ever was, She died in 1984 of MS, It's sad because 6 months after she was diagnosed she played a Sonata from Chopin after not even picking up the cello for six months, Six Months after that she could barely play a note.

She was born in Oxford on January 26, 1945 into a middle-class family in which music was important: her mother was a fine pianist and a gifted teacher. The French-sounding name came from her father's Channel Island ancestry. Just before her fifth birthday, when she was already showing musical promise, she heard the sound of a cello on the radio and the course of her life

At ten years old Jacqueline du Pré studied under William Pleeth. She then studied with Casals, Tortelier and Rostropovich. In 1965 she recorded the Elgar Concerto with Sir John Barbirolli and the London Symphony Orchestra, a recording which established her stardom. Her unselfishness made her a brilliant chamber music player, collaborating with many of today's greatest names in music. Her friendship with Daniel Barenboim, Itzhak Perlman, Zubin Mehta and Pinchas Zuckerman, led to the famous film by Christopher Nupen of their Schubert "Trout" Quintet.

In 1967 she married pianist Daniel Barenboim. TIME magazine wrote, "Thus began one of the most remarkable relationships, personal as well as professional, that music has known since the days of Clara and Robert Schumann." Their marriage led to some fruitful collaboration, evidenced in many recordings with Barenboim as pianist or conductor.

She could not pinpoint the time when she started losing feeling in her fingers, and her arms, as she said, felt like lead. By the fall of 1973 she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She continued to teach on occasion, but the deterioration of her health gained momentum and finally, on October 19, 1987, she died at the age of forty-two.

Rothes
Dec 26th, 2003, 04:05 AM
Yep it is, Its based on a Book by her Sister Hillary, who was destined to be a great flutist, I forget what the book was called "A genius in the family"??

If you can get a hold on it, it is truly worth watching, It is indeed a great movie.

It is very difficult for me to choose favorites but there are some films that have impressed me and some that have touched me.

I was deeply touched by Frida, The Hours, A Beautiful Mind, Angela's Ashes (loved the book too), Beaches, Forest Gump ...

I found The Lion King impressive, as well as As Good As it Gets, The Others, Birds, Girl Interrupted, The Piano, Quills ...

I like Elisse's list. Haven't seen all of them. Didn't like every one of them that I saw. Overall, though, a list that I can relate to.

Love both of the Anne Rice/vampire Lestat movies, though they are actually so different in approach.
