Favorite Films & Shows

Recommended Posts

Movies:  Field of Dreams, Rudy, Miracle, Titanic, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (timeless classic), Jurassic Park (the original), James Bond (with Roger Moore especially), 50 First Dates (and I loathe Adam Sandler).

TV:  Star Trek Voyager (I've gone through the series at least 5 times),  CSI Las Vegas, Jeopardy (every day).  I do have Babylon 5 on DVD, but I haven't watched it in years.  I also loved Leminy Snicket.  It was unique.

My 2 favourite films are, Big Fish and The Count of Monte Cristo. 

Lost is my favourite TV show. My wife won't stop watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt so I have got into that. 

Is the unbreakable lds friendly?

Another favorite:

Les Miserables
Best Scene

You have good tastes @anatess2! :) 

Though On My Own from the same takes my number 1 - what a beautiful piece of music that is.  

i really enjoy Cinderella from 2015.  Not very often kindness and gentleness are the central traits of the heroine.  The Hiding Place from 1975, Fiddler on the Roof, Sophie Scholl, The Life of Pi, A Man For All Seasons, Miracles From Heaven, Lord Jim, The Light Between Oceans, The Greatest Showman, and like @Lee, The Count of Monte Cristo (Richard Chamberlain version).

The American Experience Documentaries are incredible generally - Amish: Shunned and Battle of Chosin are both so emotional.

The best scene in Les Mis is the end of the Epilogue

Thanks!

Not sure if you've seen the 1975 version.  Maybe it's that people like whatever they see first, but i've always thought that particular version was exceptional.  The ending scene is so poignant.

The rejection scene from Fiddler on the Roof.  i love depictions of how two good people can believe so differently.  It entirely understandable, and yet so very sad.

I'm not as fond of the 1975 version.  I find the older movies are... ah... stiff?  The older movie styles rely much more on the dialogue to convey the story.  I'm more into the more modern style of combining good dialogue with intense action.
