    For me an action movie impressed me most, but still it depends on the effects of the movie.

    Gosh there's several.. For the overall "that was SOOO cool" category: Armageddon, the Lord of the Rings, and the Avengers. In the "that was amazing, what the heck just happened?" category: the Mystery of Rampo (a Japanese-language film available thru the mail by Netflix, I believe), in the "I really liked it but don't want anyone to know because I'm a guy" category: Ever After (the Dru Barrymore flick), Pride and Prejudice (Kiera Knightly), my big, fat, Greek, wedding, and While You Were Sleeping.

    2001: A Space Odyssey. I still watch it and marvel that this was achieved in 1968.

    Also rans: Bladerunner, Lord of the Rings, Casino.

    Loads more but these are the ones I will keep coming back to.

    Free movies are very difficult to acquire legally, and for this reason, you are not Iikely to find many answers here. Most members of this forum rip DVDs that they have bought, and transfer them to iPad.

    We do not condone theft, nor allow discussion of piratical methods.

    Posting this for your information. I am not suggesting that you intend to do anything wrong.

    Agree, it's a great film. Think recently it has been voted as No. 1 in the 100 best-loved films ever.

    It was "Bambi" for me when I was little. It hit my stomach with a sledge-hammer then. Now, a lifetime later, still does. Animals dying turn on my taps every time.

    Almost up with that is "Dersu Uzala", a Russian-Japanese-made film (Kurosawa) set in furthest Siberia. It ticks every box you could think of. We bought a copy on VCR which we can't play any more... :-(

    (Just seen it's now available on DVD. I'm off to order one. Wiki describes the film if anyone is interested.)

    Cool Hand Luke
    Cat On A Hot Tin Roof
    Bullet
    The Longest Day
    2001 A Space Odyssey
    A L I E N
    Blade Runner
    Terminator
    Terminator Judgement Day
    We Were Soldiers

    All of the above are high on my repeat viewing index.

    While it doesn't qualify as a motion picture, of all video viewing in my lifetime, "Band of Brothers" has left a deep impression. I've watched the series twice and am about to begin a third viewing.

    Never seen any of BofBs but this makes me want to. The music is very familiar & just swoony.

    Yes to ALIEN but I never could get the popularity of 2001 Space Odyssey. What the heck did I miss about it?

    If you like soundtracks, "Band of Brothers" is available in iTunes. Fine work.

    If we include TV series, MASH must top the bill? Or is BofB able to top that?

    That's saying something! Think we missed seeing the first few, and then it's a bit more difficult to pick up. And easy play-again facilities haven't been around that long.

    I agree. M.A.S.H., is an entirely different program
    and as a dark / comedy / dramatic series, compares to no others. Band Of Brothers is so different because of its characters, story telling and intensity. And the opening sequence of each episode featuring some of the soldiers being portrayed, is unlike anything I've ever experienced.

    Sounds excellent, just my cuppa tea. Anything that tops MASH just has to be. Looking forward to starting it.

    Returning to the film thread, in my next group down are:

    The Toy Story series (well, all the Pixar films)
    The Aardman films (Wallace & Gromit etc)
    The Bourne Conspiracy series

    Suppose it's obvious that good animation interests me.

    Billion Dollar Brain
    Ipcress File
    Funeral In Berlin

    These all captured a time in London really well, spy thrillers without the gadgets and Michael Caine' best work IMHO.

    The Godfather Trilogy (yes, even the third one!)

    This is such an epic piece of cinema.

    The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
    Fistful Of Dollars
    For A Few Dollars More

    Few words but music and staring done to perfection!

    Lord Of The Rings Trilogy

    Just epic, I never thought that they could set Tolkiens work to film!

    I'll be back later when I remember all the films that I have forgotten!
