I'm guessing you are referring to the LEgend DVD. Did you get the 2 disc version with the directors cut and the original theatrical cut?

A great movie, definitely one of my faves.

And Mia...mmmmm Image

I even watched that crap tv movie "Queenie" because she was in it. At least I got to see her in that sexy belly dancing costume!

Yes, I did order the 2 disc version of Legend and I am so anxious for it to arrive. I agree, Mia is gorgeous.

I looooove Ghost World. I love Thora Birch in it. Steve Buscemi is one of my favorite actors. They were perfect together. I've watched it dozens of times and could watch it a dozen more times.

Yup, the conspiricy research community rarely gets such good publicity. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a sudden urge to go and purchase a copy of The Catcher In The Rye...

Some of my favourite movies (the ones I can think of right now):
Star Wars (all of them)
Indiana Jones (all, but I like the Last Crusade best - "You were named after the dog?!")
Lord of the Rings
Titanic
Top Gun
Monty Python - Holy Grail and Life of Brian
Centrestage (terrible acting but I just love the dance sequence at the end)
Baz Luhrman's Romeo and Juliet
Castaway
ET
The Neverending Story
Labrynth
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
Ever After
10 Things I Hate About You
The Patriot

I'm trying to think of something Aussie, but I guess Romeo and Juliet counts... kinda.

Just thought I'd share some of my faves.

Bridget Jone's Diary
Emma
Sense and Sensibility
Signs
Matrix
Bullets over Broadway
Office Space
Wild Things
House of spirits
The Others
Moulan Rouge
Breakfast Club

These are the movies that I can watch over and over and never get bored. Of course there of tons of indies I have seen that have maybe impacted me more, but when I am in the mood for a veg on the couch--I will likely reach for one of these!

Nik, I LOVE Signs! One of the only times I've screamed in a movie, and no special effects, no gory violence, just the amazing background music to make it all scary and suspenseful.

That's why I love it so much. Kind of Hitchcock. When I saw it in the theatre, it felt like it was happening to me. So surreal!

Harold and Maude
Almost Famous (What are people's opinions of the Bootleg? generally I like it, but I think some additions make the film weaker)
Royal Tanenbaums
Rushmore
Office Space
Next Stop Wonderland
Big Lebowski
Manhattan (Huge Woody Allen Fan!!)




Other fav's (some aren't great films, but there is something in them...):
Stealing Beauty (my high school favorite)
Lord of the Rings
Everyone Says I love You
Magnolia
Requiem for a Dream

Shag
Pecker
Most Gene Wilder films (Don't Start the Revolution Without Me is the best)
Princess Bride
Although they both deviate from their orginal texts to an almost shameful degree, Ethan Hawkes' Hamlet (even included it in my senior thesis) and Great Expectations (I LOVE this director and all his green films, and love the painting with the lovers coming out of the mouths of the fish and bird to kiss)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Sandlot
Inventing the Abbotts
Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi (Empire is my fav of the three "I'm nice men" I LOVE Harrison!! (Raiders of the lost Arc and Last Crusade are good too!) Absolutely HATE the new ones, but I'll still see the last one, I mean you have to don't you?)

Favorite movies to make fun of: A Bronx Tale, All I Wanna Do, and Crazy Beautiful


I know there are more, but this is what comes to mind, I do realize it's a lot
