This is wonderful that "BBM" was included. Thanks Nikki  :)

Finally!  BBM deserves to be recognized for the romantic film that it is.

this movie about the secret love affair between two cowboys ranks 12th among the highest-grossing romantic dramas of all time.

They're talking money here.
In 2010, 606 people (all ages) were accidentally killed by guns.
Almost 3000 teens (15-19) die in traffic accidents a year.
1100 kids under 19 drown each year.
44 kids under 5 died of heat stroke in hot cars in 2013.
HIGH school sports account for 1.2 million trips to the ER annually.

My favourite movie of all time is definitely Titanic. I'm sure it always will be. Others include almost every movie musical ever made (except Moulan Rouge and The Phantom of the Opera). I also love Muriel's Wedding...It's pretty much the story of my life. And most recently, Brokeback Mountain gets put number three on my list.

1. Titanic
2. Muriel's Wedding
3. Brokeback Mountain
4. Rent
5. Grease

Hello Willow, I like your list!


I never seem to put Titanic on my top 10 and I don't know why.  I loved the movie and I never get tired of watching it, I don't know how many times I have seen it, I have lost count.  I should move it up the list.


And I have never seen Muriel's Wedding, but have heard so much about it.  If it is on Netflix, I will check it out!

Please watch it Bubba. It's really good. Kind of like a comedy/drama. Sometimes it's really funny and other times it's really depressing and you just want to cry. Really worth watching, if you agree. I nice coming of age movie.

I swear half the movies I look for on there, they don't have them.  Don't worry I will find it someplace!  ;D

Good pics (forgot about this thread)   Lord of the Rings is both my son's top #1 movie for sure.


How beautiful was Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall?   :-*

I've seen 'Candy' and 'The Graduate' as well  :)

Mind you, I've excluded any specific Jake Gyllenhaal films from my list  ;)  Some of those can be found under "5. a million other movies", I guess.

Sometimes I watch an old movie I used to like, and suddenly it's not as good as I had remembered... or too slow, or far too long ('Titanic', anyone?)  I used to like a lot of music fims (Grease, Footloose, Flashdance, Dirty Dancing) and I have them all on DVD, but I rarely watch them anymore. Suppose I've watched them too often in the past.

I once saw an 80s film on Dutch TV, late at night, that had Aidan Quinn in it. I had videotaped the last hour or so, but my video messed up the ending and the credits... After a while I couldn't remember the title or who the female lead was - but I couldn't get that film out of my head. I only remembered Aidan Quinn - he was well known back then for being in 'Desperately Seeking Susan' with Madonna. In this one, he reminded me a lot of James Dean in 'Rebel without a Cause'.

Anyway, it took me years and years to find out what the film was called. This was waaaay before the internet, folks!  :)  I came across it a couple of years ago when I was reading YouTube comments about a song that features in the film ('Kids in America' by Kim Wilde).  Yaaaaaaaay! The film was called 'Reckless'.

But... no region 2 DVDs to be found anywhere. I don't think the film was ever officially released in Europe. I managed to find a bootleg on eBay after a while, so you can imagine how happy I was! Hadn't seen the film in over 25 years.

Well, it arrived and I played it... and it was mediocre at best  :D  Such a typical 80s teen movie! It does have its fine moments - but in the DVD version they edited out some great sex scenes and nudity, so that was a disappointment  ::)  ;D  No way it's in my all-time favorite list anymore! I still love it for old times' sake, though.

The Graduate was a great one, Suely, and I DID see it in the cinema when it was first out....with my parents, in fact.   :D


I can't remember ever seeing The Days of Wine and Roses, but I loved that theme song.
