    I LOVE "The Enchanted Cottage". I haven't seen it for years and years.

    "When Harry Met Sally"
    "Pride and Prejudice" (A&E version)
    "Sense and Sensibility"
    All the original "Star Wars" trilogy, none of the new ones
    "Star Trek: First Contact"

    Those are the ones I can watch again and again.

    I, too, love Sense and Sensability and Pride and Prejudice. When I just want a fun movie, though, my favorite of all time is "Better off Dead" with John Cusack. My husband and I will randomly say to one another, "I want my two dollars!" and then end up in a giggling fit. 80s movies were the best!

    For everyone that likes Sense and Sensibility and Pride & Prejudice you should watch Grey Gardens starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange. It is phenomonal, the acting is superb.

    Okay, I'll play.

    Tasia, we must be long lost sisters! I love your movies too. My first husband was an "actor" in Los Angeles (I use the term verrrrry loosely) and the best think I got from him was an education about and appreciation for classic movies. There is something that is comforting about watching those old classics and I'm of the school that Hollywood in it's heyday will never be replicated.

    I'll add Wizard of Oz (never get tired of it, Garland in her youth gives me a lump in my throad...)

    Breakfast at Tiffany's

    Father of the Bride (the original, natch)

    It's a Wonderful Life

    2Dogs---Member of the Wedding...YES!!!! ("You are the we of me!")

    To Kill a Mockingbird (I wanted Gregory Peck to be my new daddy)

    Some Like it Hot

    Tootsie (the Manhattan scene when Tootsie is in the crowded masses and trips on his high heels still makes me laugh, without even seeing it!)

    Amalie

    Cinema Paradiso


    That's it for now. Yeah, I'm all over the board. More later. I don't dislike modern movies, I simply adore the older ones.
