I really dislike movies, I'd much rather read a book, but here are my few favorites in no particular order...


  • The Matrix

  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail

  • Spaceballs



And my favorite Disney movie is the Hunchback of Notre Dame

I see more movies than ANYONE I bet..at least two a month..sometimes two a week and on ‘movie marathons’ two or three a day!!!


Shawshank Redemption – the oddest movie about hope I’ve ever seen..I own it and watch it often.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind – own this one too. Love the idea that there COULD be nice spacemen out there.

The Great Escape – Another story of hope.

The Full Monty – sigh (don’t ask)

The Commitments – the music, the music, the music.

The Quiet Man – a film with John Wayne that showed his acting ability.


Favorite Disney? – No way to pick one!

Space Balls

The Princess Bride

Life is Beautiful

The Secret of Nimh

The Fifth Element

American Beauty

Disney: The Sword and the Stone ... won my heart long before B&B or other such marvels .. can't kick it, sorry.

p.s. Ryan, do you mean Bringing Out the Dead? What movie are you taking about?
