I want to see this new movie that Russel Crowe has done, some kind of western. I think it comes out today.

My favorite movies are Brave Heart, Jerimiah Johnson and God's and General's. I watch them about every other month, there are a lot of spiritual applications in all 3 of those movies.

I also real like Lord of the Rings, got to love how he shoots that recurve :wink: .

I too want to see 3:10 to Yuma...it looks good.

My favorite movie is Groundhog Day. It's not the best movie ever made, but I really like it.

Lonesome Dove, Open Range, Across the Wide Missouri, The Big Sky, the Gettysburg trilogy which included Gods and Generals, and I forget the other one. There are just too many for me to list. I really like the old Wagon Train flick that John Wayne was in. It was filmed back when there were lots of farmers still using teams, and as far as that goes, oxen, which you never see now. I like to watch that movie and watch the stuff going on in the background.
Saving Private Ryan is another that tops my list.

Favorite movies

Postby thumper » Sat Sep 22, 2007 10:37 pm

My favorites are:
13th Warrior- cause I'm Viking, and it's about living fearlessly and with honor.
Quiggly Down Under -Triumph of Quality of Character over greed.
Under Seige- High Body count by a good guy, best with swearing removed!.
Open Range- one of the best realistic western shoot outs ever.
Dances with wolves- All too realistic of the old west frontier.

The Outlaw Josey Wales, and The Good the Bad and the Ugly-great classic westerns without the drug store hero cowboy.

The Postman- makes one think of what it may be like in the future if mankind doesn't wake up !

Brave heart is a great movie, but I get too upset when I see the deception of the wealthy over the common man! Things never change!

Any western movie that John Wayne is in, for some reason he is a natural in that role. Say Yuma 3:10 last night, lots of good acting, the gun fights were good, but still not as good as the old time movies.

You can’t beat the classics of John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. As for newer movies I still like Gladiator I like when the under dog wins

Silverado
Rachel and the Stranger (Loretta Young, William Holden, Robert Mitchum)
Anything with John Wayne
The Natural
It's a Wonderful Life

My two cents worth.

3:10 to Yuma.. It was pretty good. I am the National Construction Manager for a big theather chain. I get to see them all for free, especially when I am out of town. The problem is most are not worth the time, even if they are free.
