Hi, Mal:

I must admit that I am a movie fan, too. I watch very little regular television, but I do watch movies on video and dvd regularly. I'm a bit of a cheapskate, though, as I very seldom go to a theater to watch a movie.

I think my favourite movie genre would have to be science fiction (NOT the fantasy stuff).

Harrison Ford's "Blade Runner" (NOT the director's cut - sorry, Mr. Scott), is probably high on my list of all-time favourites.

Bruce Willis' "The Fifth Element" and Michael J. Fox's "Back to the Future" series are high on the list as well.

GT :-)

Let me throw my two cents in here. My favorite movie is Dirty Dancing. I just love the ending so very much. It's really a great love story. Remembering Patrick Swayze is really good because this is what made him a huge star. LOL to you all.

Okay, Hello everyone and happy New Year. I have a few favorites, although my all time favorite is the GodFather, second would be Goodfellas and after that I would say, all Tarintino movies, Stpehen King Movies and the list goes on.

Hello, Steven (inertia4): This is a funny coincidence - I don't know why, but this morning, even before I was thinking of going online, I was thinking about the Godfather and Goodfellas movies!

The Godfather series of three movies is one of my top favourites, especially the first and third. The second was okay, but I wasn't as thrilled about it as other people seemed to be. And Goodfellas is very entertaining, especially Joe Pesci's out-of-control character.

Tarantino's Pulp Fiction is high on my list, too, re-launching John Travolta's career.

Hello,

I see the Godfather is always popular and over the new year weekend the trilogy has been on here in the UK which I have recorded. Do you think I should devote 10 hours to watching all three.

No, whilst it would be great I had better not otherwise I would be living on my own by the end of it, LOL

Mal.

LOL, I hear you, Mal! Every couple of years I like to watch that trilogy and I also like to watch the Star Wars sextet(?) - 6 movies, from the beginning (the second trilogy) to the end (the original trilogy).

But I have to watch them one at a time, spread out over a number of days ... just to keep peace in the house, lol. ;-)

Hmm. That reminds me. It's almost time to break out the ol' Star Trek movie collection again and watch the movies from the beginning to the end! I am such a William Shatner fan! (He is Canadian, you know.)

Hey GT,

Ah yes, Star Wars, thanks for reminding us. Great entertainment and brilliant special effects. Anything like that makes a great box set as a present.

Star Trek, yes I loved all the TV series although looking back at them now, most of them were pretty corny but that's bound to happen over several years but again great family entertainment. I thought they transferred to the big screen very well and I didn't know Shatner was a Canadian, you learn something every day !!

regards,

Mal.

. . . And talking about Star Trek and movies . . .

While I am a fan of all of the Star Trek movies, I will admit that some of them aren't as exciting as others.

However . . . with the 2009 release of the NEWEST movie in the Star Trek franchise, my faith in its future has been restored ...

Man! I love that movie! Especially Chris Pine as the NEW James T. Kirk! What an awesome portrayal of the character, adding youth to the character while keeping many of the "Kirk" mannerisms fans have come to know and love.

I took me a few viewings of the movie to warm up to the "new" Spock character, but after watching the scene in the "Special Features" where Kirk and Spock do a complete scene using foreign accents, Zachary Quinto (as Spock) has won me over with his humour and his talent.

In the 2009 movie, I like all of the primary enterprise characters, but Scotty and Chekhov (next to Kirk) are my favourites.

GT :-)
