    I'm a tragic for the young adult fantasy/dystopian genre so got to go with Hunger Games, Divergent, Vampire Academy and the all time classic Twilight.

    I agree Neil, Shawshank Redemption is an awesome movie!

    These other movies are based more on romance (yes, I am a female):

    1. The Holiday
    2. Love Actually
    3. Ten Things I Hate About You
    4. The Spectacular Now

    These movies are not overly romantic, but still feature romantic elements:

    Divergent
    Dan In Real Life (hilarious and uplifting, in my opinion)
    The Hunger Games

    Absolutely agree with you Tony about Clint Eastwood and the Good, the Bad and the Ugly trilogy.  Must be an age thing.

    Big fan of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.  It always irritates me that films change the book plot, especially when they add actions not already in the book, but despite this really enjoyed these films.

    Not keen on horror films but I did enjoy the Kill Bill trilogy. Very bloody but so unlikely it was almost funny.

    Enjoyed Toni Collette in Muriel's Wedding.  Long ago in a galaxy far away I enjoyed The Man From UNCLE films and TV series.  Not the most amazing films but great in their day.

    Hi Amy

    Yes, I know the film with Clint Eastwood with the gold. Throughout that movie its like they tried to avoid the war entirely.

    Hope you can find out what movie that was.

    And you have to get "the legend of 1900"  a great movie.

    One of my favourite movies is 'The Barbarian Invasions' And no, there are no large bearded men with swords in their hands and a bad attitude in it. It is a French movie and won an oscar for best foreign language movie.........It is about a terminally ill academic and the last weeks of his life. The humour is delicious and the rawness of his plight so utterly palpatable that it asks questions of which there is no answer..............His immenent death erodes all the pretentions which have constituted his life and he is left to die aware of the fact that he had never really lived..............Its not for everyone but the jouney of those final weeks is one we must all take in one form or another whether we wish it or not.

    I just saw a New Zealand Movie that I loved.

    It's very odd so I'm told. I thought it was very funny and dark.

    What We Do In The Shadows.

    It is a case of where do you start! Comedy, I can't go past Monty Python's Holy Grail - such a classic. I do enjoy the old Clint Eastwood westerns too! Silence if the Lambs is better than most horror movies! Recent movies - American Sniper was good, as well as A Walk Among Tombstones. I am also lucky I have kids because the Minion movie is coming up ....

    'The Avengers' is definitely the lead movie that results in me sitting there with a goofy, pleased smile on my face.

    'Contagion' is fantastic. It's just terrifying in this really abstract yet realistic way. It blows my mind that the CDC let the film makers use their facilities.

    My guilty pleasure movie is 'What's Your Number'. I skip through most of it but the good scenes are really entertaining in that horrible but amazing chick-flick kind of way. And the Chris Pratt cameos are priceless because of the role he plays compared to the role his irl wife plays.

    I also watched 'Kelly's heroes', great,  'Dirty Dancing' is another one I love.  'The War Horse', brilliant.  'South Pacific'.  'Grease', my husband used to drool over Olivia.  He likes action, I enjoy thrillers, some horror, although I've found they tend to be pretty much the same thing.  I loved 'The Amityville' movies.  'The Conjuring', one of the best horror flicks I've seen.

    Thanks Indra. I have great memories from The Rocky Horror Picture Show and still difficult to stay still if I hear the time warp.

    I watched The Color Purple recently. I loved the book when I was younger and have been wanting to watch the movie again. A beautiful story.

    This is a great idea for a thread.

    Pixie.

    I'm a real softie when it comes to movies. Never watched horror movies, staying away from war or crime movies or anything that is too realistic or too close to me. I do stop watching movies as soon as I get anxious. The same is for anything on TV, like the news, turn off the news...

    If I think about the movies I have watched most in my life and take the Top 3:

    - Grease - I love singing to Grease
    - Dirty Dancing - still love the romance
    - Ghost - very personal connection

    If I think about movies that I watch on TV now, it is mainly animated movies, that can make me sit still. Loved watching Epic yesterday, but will go for any kids movies - and friends kids love me for that :)

    Great Movie! Kiwi humour can be a bit twisted and dry at times, but its always meant in good-humour. This movie is a perfect example of the way Kiwis are always taking the ..., ...even of the dead and undead!!!
