1. Schindler's List
2. Forrest Gump
3. The Sting
4. The Great Escape

Next I wanna get Lost In Translation, I Am Sam (haven't seen either of them), and Mystic River.

I love movies. But only good ones. I really don't have the patience to sit and watch a dumb movie. At least not lately.

2004-03-21 16:27:34 ET

Meh, I Am Sam wasn't all that good in my opinion.

2004-03-21 16:32:52 ET

no? I'm on a bit of a Sean Penn kick, so I thought if I found it used I'd pick it up.

2004-03-21 16:34:32 ET

Sean Penn is good in the movie, its just the movie is a bit weak. It's like, a movie made as an excuse to try and get him nominated for an Oscar, lol.

Maybe I'll just rent it and see if I like it enough to own. Thanks for the heads-up!

i am sam is sad.

and i am in love with lost in translation.

I've only seen Schindler's List out of all those movies, but I hear good things about the rest.

As far as I am Sam goes, I've heard both extremes from friends.

The Sting is a little tough to follow, but well worth it for the ending.
It won 7 Oscars including Best Picture in 1973.

My best friend's dad told me all about that one a few years back. He is big on collecting movies as well.

Anything difficult to follow, or head-fucks were sure to be in his collection. It was always fun watching movies there.

Do you have "The Elephant Man"? If you buy one movie in your entire lifetime, let it be that one.

2004-03-22 07:47:07 ET

What is I Am Sam? Because it sounds really familiar.

2004-03-22 08:03:15 ET

Its a movie about a man who is mentally handicapped (is that even politically correct to say anymore?)

2004-03-22 08:57:57 ET

And he has a daughter?

Yes, I believe I did see that one. ^^

2004-03-22 10:34:30 ET

well how about 21 grams? that another tough movie to follow. Plus it got Sean penn in as well. I just watched that last night.

2004-03-22 14:07:24 ET

Yeah, I definitely want to see 21 Grams.

2004-03-22 14:23:29 ET
