We have another Weekend Question to make you all think a little. Your opinions are always worth listening to. Note there won't be another Question until I return from vacation at the beginning of July.
I'm asking about one of my favourite subjects: films.
Which are your five favourite movies and why?
Here are mine:
1: The Hours: This is the best by far. Three of the top film actresses of the time (Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep & Julianne Moore) playing in an intelligent movie with great supporting cast as well. Every time I see this movie it just gets better.
2: The Godfather Trilogy: Cheating a little by having three movies, but they are all part of one epic tale. So much detail is in the telling, I seem to find more everytime I see it.
3: Lord Of The Rings (Extended Editions): Another trilogy that could not be separated in the telling. The theatrical versions aren't good enough, and should only be seen in the Extended Versions, as vital detail is cut out. The definitive fantasy film.
4: Pleasantville: This movie is said to have more special effects than the original Star Wars movie. The use of colour and black and white is astonishing. A moral message is in here also, with stars who had yet to be discovered at the time.
5: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: A beautifully filmed movie that turned martial arts into an art movie, with balletic sequences duplicated in 'Hero' and 'House Of Flying Daggers'. Chow Yun Fat, Michelle Yeoh & Zhang Ziyi are perfectly cast.
There are so many others I could add that were comedies, thrillers, tragedies etc.
Now, it's over to you......
