    I love Babe, Lady and the Tramp on the kids side.

    I love Black Hawk down, We were Soldiers, Full Metal Jacket, Platoon on the other side.

    I also love "the shining", Hard Candy, Saw, all scary stuff.

    Then I love anything that has to do with killers and Serial Killers. I love the Criminal mind and Forensics.

    Hey Lisa!

    Cool choices! What is "Hot Fuzz" about? Is it in the USA? Don't think I ever heard of it.

    Do you like "Monty Python"?

    I laughed myself silly at "Meaning of Life". I must say though it was a little bit stereotyping of British culture.

    I'm Irish and Native American. Seems like there are some funny movies about being Irish but everything Native American has to be so serious. Its like we red people don't have a sense of humor.

    If anybody knows of a funny movie with Native Americans in it, let me know.

    Not "McClintok" that one seemed a bit insulting and stereotyping.
    Gosh! Sounds like I need to use my sense of humor and not be so serious!

    Hot Fuzz is an English movie, i dont know if it'll go to the states or not... its about a police man who is so good at everything he gets sent to a quiet town so that he stops making the police force look stupid because he's so good. The town appears really normal, but there is something strange going on in it. But it is absolutely hiliarious, the town will swear black is blue to keep their reputation- I cant really say much more or Ill ruin the plot, but trust me, it's funny!

    Have you seen Shaun of the Dead? The funny version of Dawn of the Dead (which Ihavent seen ebcause I dont watch horrors) - one of the main guys in that is in hot fuzz. Here's the link to its webpage http://www.jointhefuzz.com/indexnew.php

    If people like ironic humour and outrageous humour, I recommend this. When I went to see it, it had been out a week and we just got the last 5 tickets. The last time that happened at the movies I was 12.

    I think I like monthy python - but Im not sure.... I am crap with names!! Growing up I loved Jasper Carrot though!

    I do like so many titles, but I think my favourite is probably Dr. Zhivago. I saw it in the cinema as a young teen and was quite captivated by it. Also sneaked in to see Psycho in the cinema at age 9, and that was extremely exciting, as it was the first time no one was allowed in after the film started. For those of you too young to recall, movies used to run constantly, several showings, one after the other, and it was not uncommon for people to come and go in the middle of a film. If you came in the middle, you simply stayed for the next showing to catch the beginning. But Psycho changed all that, with its surprise ending. Really I like Hitchcock films in general, Stanley Kubrick as well, especially his older films, such as Lolita and Clockwork Orange. The Great Santini, late 70s I believe and starring Robert Duvall, is a very good movie, especially if you come from a military family.
