For a good action/comedy, I reccomend Bad

Boys I. I haven't been to see Bad Boys II yet, but I hear it is better than the first. And of course I like all of the Rush Hour movies. Another good

action/comedy series. Makes me want Chinese too.

I loved Rushhour II. I don't remember if I've seen all of Rushhour or not, lol.

I keep meaning to see all those anime movies- I've heard great things about Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Castle in the Sky, but I haven't gotten my hands on any of them. Now I'm even more anxious to do so...

I love movies but today I watched Big Trouble with Tim Allen. It's so hilarious you can't stop laughing. It's based on a book by Dave Barry who I can't get enough of along with Bill Bryson. :)

I feel kind of silly for saying this, but in all honestly I really enjoyed the Lizzie McGuire movie. If you've seen and liked the show, you'd love it.

My friends all liked it too! I swear!  :-[

I agree and disagree with Ophelia. Moulin Rouge is definetly one of my favourite movies (Nicole Kidman's costumes are so pretty :)), but I did NOT like Romeo + Juliet. Another of my favourite films is Lord of the Rings. And Pride and Prejudice (Mwuahahahha! Colin Firth looks so funny when Lizzie refuses his rude proposal). I also really loved That Thing You Do... and so many other films ;D It's so hard to love just one film, as there are so many good ones out there!

I find the proposal to Lizzy by both Darcy and Collins hilarious and surprising "You must let me tell you how ardently I love and admire you" then he goes on about how he has fought himself about it. He doesn't know when to stop. Collins on the other hand thinks that once his proposal was rejected, he'll try again just to see if anything's changed. My sisters see it so often that even I have it memorised >:(

You're so lucky. My family members won't let me watch it again, and again, and again :) ... well, no. Maybe my sister wouldn't mind, but apart from her, I think I'd just get thrown out of the room by my loving father/mother/brother with the DVD.

That reminds me.  I need to watch that one again.

I have different kinds of favorite movies.  There are feel-good movies like That Thing You Do, simply excellent in every way movies like Pride and Prejudice, classics like Charade with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, and then there are the goofy ones.  Those haven't really been addressed, so I'll list a few of those as long as you all promise not to think I'm a total nutter.

Mom and Dad Save the World
Condor Man (which is not 100% goofy, but still fits in the category)
Weird Al's UHF (it is UHF, isn't it?)
Top Secret (with a very young Val Kilmer - although it has some seriously riske humor in parts of it....)

Okay, I can't think of any more right now, but if they're not too bizarre (Mom and Dad Save the World takes a special kind of appreciation) then they're really really funny.

Try Ghost. It's not scarry or stupid (but the very end is very cheezy, but don't let that stop you from atching it). Demi More (is that it?) is sooooo pretty! I'm really jealous.
And with you people, go P&P!
Shrek, very fun!
I agree with you Madeleine, I really liked That Thing You Do.
Umm, what more?

Young Frankenstein. Though you have to be that age (a lot of the jokes come from songs of the 70s so my dad explained it to me.) and sometimes it takes a while (even if it's stupid funny) to get the jokes. ;D

Gone with the Wind
Miss Congeniality
Toy Story
Ocean's Eleven
All the Hitchcock ones (though avoid earlier ones. They're not as good)
Big Trouble is hilarious. SEE IT

For an uncomplicated easy movie, Soap Dish is one of my favorite movies - Kevin Klein is terrific

And the movie I saw the most in the movie theaters - Dirty Dancing

Old Person alert - when I was in college the movie theater in town had $1 Monday night movies and I went with friends every Monday night for over 2 months.

Can anyone recommend a really good horror movie (Halloween is coming up, and that is one of the only times I will sit down and watch scary movies)?

I can't recommend it, because it's a 15 and I'm only 13, but Cabin Fever is meant to be a scary film.

I saw 'Bend it like Beckham' a few days ago and I also really enjoyed it.
Yesterday I went to the theatre and saw "School of Rock". It surprised me so much! It was great! I was impressed, I never expected to like it quite so much :)

I haven't seen it but you could try "The Ring" or "I know what you did last summer. I don't know if they were scary and anyways all horror movies get paned by the criticks. I don't really like them.
I own Bend it like Beckam. I guess that can show that I like it.

I'm not really into scary movies, however I will make an exception for 'The Sixth Sense' and 'Signs.'

I thought the 6th Sense wasn't a horror movie. I was told it wasn't. I never actually saw it, but that's what I was told.

Spirited away has only just come out in England. It's a really good film though! Finding Nemo has only just come out as well.

Sixth Sense is not a horror movie, but it is creepy.

I didn't really like the Sixth Sense too much, but I think it was because I saw it after knowing the twist.  The last really scary movie I saw was the Blair Witch Project (I like to go camping, so I found it frightening).  Everything I have seen since seems to fall short.

May I just say. That you Kelpie, seem to encourage movies that you actually haven't seen. I'm going to go see Finding Nemo for my bday party with like 15 friends.

Well, my birthday was in June, so it's not going to happen anytime soon. Plus, I'm new so I probably don't have really have 15 friends. Is Finding Nemo good? I wanted to see it but I never got to seing it.
I encourage the movies I haven't seen because I'd like to know what they talk about.

Last night I watched Pulp Fiction for the first time, and tonight I watched The Fugitive for about the 3rd time. Both were very good, you should watch them!
