    Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.

    Nah - probably 70% of my son' favorite movies are black and white, or made pre 70's.

    Good flicks are good flicks, no matter your age!

    The Gospel of John (2003)

    Can't think of any other movies I think people should see; several I could recommend as really worth seeing, but not necesarily "shoulds".

    Well, maybe

    The Hiding Place
    The Diary of Anne Frank
    Rack on!

    I'm going to add

    Presenting Lily Mars

    Not because it's the greatest movie or anything, but Judy Garland and Van Heflin make it one of my favorite movies, I can watch it over and over.

    I love all of your favorites but is it possible that nobody mentioned THE BIRD CAGE?

    We can't pass it up and laugh uncontrollably. I even have much of it memorized.

    Oh! Yes! I was in the grocery store and "She works hard for the Money" was playing. After that title line played ,I heard someone singing," eh, eh, eh, eh". Oh, Agador Spartacus!
    I laughed out loud and turned to see who was singing ! She said she couldn't help it! The Bird Cage.

    (I must confess, If "the Lion Sleeps Tonight" is played in the grocery store, I can't help but sing along, with enthusiasm!)

    Older:
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    Life of Brian
    The Princess Bride
    Dead Poets Society
    Forest Gump

    Newer:
    The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
    AT LEAST one of the Harry Potter movies
    Love Actually

    New:
    The King's Speech
    The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    Number 11 would be How to Train Your Dragon or possibly Lion King. I enjoy action movies and some drama/suspense from time ti time, but my favourites that I watch again and again are usually heartwarming and/or funny and I think everyone could do with a dose of that! (with the exception of Dead Poets Society which is actually fairly sad, but I do love it.)

    For anyone who has never seen Guess Who's Coming to Dinner it really is a must see. Especially those of you who are young and interested in the changes that were hard fought in the U.S.

    It was Spencer Tracy's last film.He died a week or two after the film was completed.
    Katharine Hepburn was stunning and the film is a fascinating sociological portrait of the time.
