How be everybody who wants to lists their top three movie picks?

Mine would be..3)Princess Bride (I'm Not kidding, it's loaded with symbolism!)
2)Gladiator
1)Mask of Zorro

(BMr, it's o.k. to list Finding Nemo!!!) :wink:

Kinda hard for me to have a top 3, but one thing for sure is that after watching 'Office Space' by Mike Judge, you can agree that calving cows at 3 in the morning is more fun then the lives that the characters exhibit in that movie.

Don't even watch any new movies anymore- they will never have actors as good as John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, Slim Pickens, Ben Johnson----If I have to watch something on TV its the classic movie channel-- wouldn't pay a dime to rent something that puts money back into the Hollywood of today--too much violence, misery, sex, and Micheal Moores...

I enjoyed the old uplifting movies that left at least something to the imagination and you walked away from feeling good about the world...

Reminds me of the story:

A professor gave his class an assignment-

Write in the least words , a story which encompass's
1.Religion
2.Sex
3.Mystery

Only one A+ was given out:

My God!! I'm Pregnant. Who done it?

Well, OT, I mostly agree with you, BUT all the new movies aren't terrible. There are a few that have been mentioned here that are really good. My husband watches the Western Channel (imagine that) mostly, so I know what you are saying. However, I must say you would like "Man of the House". It is a feel-good movie by all means!!

My husbands favorites:
The Magnificent Seven
Lonesome Dove
6 Days and 7 Nights

So even he can find a good, modern movie!!!

OOPs - Forgot Lonesome Dove-- Gus alone probably takes that to my number 1 spot........Just was so long I forgot to think of it as a movie...

During the holidays, It's a wonderful life and Christmas Vacation. Stewart was great, Chevy Chase depicts an average guy doing his best in a world falling apart around him, always laugh in vacation, always have a great feeling after watching Jimmy

OT -I agree with your assessment on most new movies. It is beyond me why flicks makers cannot produce stuff without the steam of bad language and other stuff you mentioned. Family style movies seem hard to come by.

What a minute, I think I just agreed with something OT said! :?
