From what I hear, the Notebook. Haven't seen it yet, but the dames seem to love this movie, and most guys say it is watchable as well.

LOVE ACTUALLY = romantic, funny, feel good movie HAUN = satirical, funny, zombie flick HALL = funny, feel good movie (but be advised its about a middle aged married man who was bored with his life and took up dancing lessons) HNNY = action comedy (guy from Mr. Bean / Rowan Atkinson) HE = animation, action comedy, fun movie (this is good) HFUL = drama, sexy movie (about infidelity of course .... sorry but i love Diane Lane) HORROR = kinda' scary. full of scenes that will startle you. (the new one)hock.gifhock.gifhock.gif
SIXTH SENSE = need I say more! really scary! hock.gifhock.gifhock.gifhock.gifhock.gif

If you can get KUNG FU HUSTLE or SHAOLIN SOCCER (Honkong made movies with english subs), just for sh*ts and giggles. Funny stuff.


ETA: These titles are by no means in a "need to own" category. BUT they are worth checking out.

A Beautiful Mind. The life story of John Forbes Nash Jr., a Nobel Prize winner who suffered from schizophrenia. This is an excellent movie IMO.

Shrek and Shrek 2. Computer animation sendups of popular fairytales. Good jokes if you can recognise the fairytales they send up and good music soundtracks.

The big three from Japanese director Akira Kurosawa, The Seven Samurai, Yojimbo and Sanjuro. These films inspired The Magnificent Seven, A Fist Full of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More (it's ironic that Kurosawa made these movies after watching US westerns and was criticised in Japan because they were "too American", and then these movies inspired more westerns). They are all black and white with Japanese voicetracks (with English subtitles). There is some action in them but the action is not the point of the movies. If you want something a bit more intellectual there is Kurosawa's Ran, based on Shakespear's tragedy King Lear, but set in Feudal Japan and his version of Macbeth, Throne of Blood.

Brassed Off. Set in a declining English coal mining town, the mine is on the verge of closing (it's the town's biggest employer) and the town brass band is struggling to keep going. An "underdogs succeed against the odds" movie, with some implied criticism of the English Thatcher government policies of the 80's which accellerated the mine closures.

The Full Monty. Another English movie in another declining industrial town (Sheffield). A group of unemployed men who struggle to find work amid company closures and downsizing decide to put on a male strip show to bring in some cash. No, it's not ghey, it's a comedy, and a good one at that.

The Italian Job (the 1969 original, not the 2003 remake). A "bank robbery" movie with a very original car chase through Rome.

I don't know how many people would say these movies are "must see/have", Beautiful Mind is probably the best of them IMO, but they're all worth watching at least once.

+1 for Princess Bride & 9th Gate.

Also Legends of the Fall. It's got enough guns & manly adventure to keep us men folks interested, and Brad Pitt to make her swoon.

Devil's Advocate is another one.

Scent of a Woman.

Pirates of the Carribean.
