    Okay, I've been kicked off another thread for changing the topic again! So I'll start another one! Tell me all your favourite movies from Disney classics to the latest Saw movie. My favourites are sci fi, romcoms, dramas, western, car chases, oh, all right all of them apart from loads of blood and gore.

    Good question, you may have noticed that I am not a movie person :)

    But if I had to choose the best movie of all times, it would most likely be Chocolat. I love the north wind sound theme, it is a fairly slow, but funny movie and without any scariness.

    Edit: must have misread your question, it asks for favorites.

    Agreed, loved it too! I must watch it again. I'm kind of fond of Dirty Dancing and Ghost. I love dancing films too. Step up.

    Chocolat, how could I forget, I like it so much I have two copies......but check out the British actors/actresses accents, they change constantly throughout the movie......especially Molina and Dench!

    And....and.....and....Amelie.......and.......and......A Very Long Engagement...........

    The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo plus the two follow ups. The middle one didn't get a good write up but I loved all three.

    English accent? I remember them all talking in high German. Someone must have sold you a fake DVD, no wonder that you find their accents go all wonky :D
