Given the response to our "Favourite Music" thread we thought we'd see if we can put together a similar list of "must see" movies. And as before, I will kick off. 2 completely different movies, the only similarity being that they both depict periods of American History: "Gone With The Wind"- starring Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh, and  "Once Upon A Time In America", starring Robert de Niro and James Woods

Nice one. Assuming we can put in 2, mine would be

"Apocalypse Now", with Martin Sheen and a bit of Marlon Brando. The horror.....!! And music by The Doors...

"Event Horizon", with Lawrence Fishburne and Sam Neill. Much maligned, but brilliant. Many more recent sci fi movies owe a lot to this one.

Great topic! I prefer movies rather than music....  an old but great movie: Ghost with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze.  I did not find a link to the trailer (guess because the movie is old?!) but here is the song!.

My two favorite movies that relate to American history would be "Gangs of New York" and “Dances With Wolves”.

Welt Am Draht (World On A Wire) by Rainer Werner Fassbinder (West Germany, 1973) is a favorite of mine. It's a slow burning existential sci-fi masterpiece that heavily influenced The Matrix. It's quite long (just over 3 hours) but it's worth it.

Alejandro Jodoworsky's The Holy Mountain is another fave. High symbolism with stunning visuals.

Well since we are in Mexico.... "Amores Perros", with Gael García, and "Arranceme La Vida" with Ana Claudia Talancón and Daniel Giménez Cacho. Amores is directed by Alaeandro Iñárritu, currently in the headlines for his also brilliant "The Revenant", with Leonardo di Caprio.

Recommend "Maria Full of Grace" a very interesting co-production between Colombia and USA.

A happy movie: Mamma Mia, with Meryl Streep, Amanda Setfried, Pierce Brosnan (who was James Bond at the time.... didn't know he could sing), Colin Firth (ditto) and Stellan Starsgard (didn't know him before).

I could, and have, watched Mean Girls more times than I can count and it never loses its appeal.  Also starring Rachel McAdams, my husband and I watched "About Time" last night...I had seen it a few years ago and thought it couldn´t be as good as I remembered...but it was.  Lovely story about love and family and just a little bit of time-travel.  Both on Netflix!

"The Eiger Sanction" with Clint Eastwood. Most of Clint's films are good - this (and "Play Misty For Me" are the ones I like best.

Watched a brilliant movie this weekend - Diva - French, must be at least 20 years old. But really good. I would add a hyperlink to a trailer but can't see how to do it. Any ideas?

Unfortunately this new version of the site doesn't allow hyperlinking yet. However this is being worked on and should be available soon

I´m a big fan of anything directed by Wes Anderson....! Lots of slow-mos and Bill Murray, what more could you want?!
