Love these movies... or else

Just a list of films you might not have seen that I happen to have a lot of affection for.

Amelie - If you don't love this movie then I'm not sure we can be friends anymore.

Barfly - You're just going to have to take my word for it. It's good and Mickey Rourke gives the performance of a lifetime. You'll hate him and you'll love him and you'll quote his lines in his voice.

Defending Your Life - I so want to believe this is how it is. And obviously none of you have seen it or someone would have realized by now that I sort of stole the name of my LJ from it. You little brains wouldn't understand anyway.

Dick - If you ever saw All the President's Men, you really do need to see this. It's cute and clever and a lot of fun.

Doc Hollywood - Yes, that Michael J. Fox movie. Don't prejudge; it's sweet. It makes me want to live in a town like Grady and go to the squash festival. Also surprisingly quotable.

Fearless - It'll stay with you. I think this film is the reason I don't fear death in my plane crash dreams (yeah I've been having those a long time).

Joe Versus the Volcano - I strongly disagree with the masses and critics. It's wonderful and it still gets quoted in my house. Even if you don't agree, you'll no doubt enjoy Joe's office misery at the beginning.

LA Story - When Steve Martin was still made of awesome. There are so many good moments packed in that you won't care how silly the story actually is.

Prelude to a Kiss - Warm and fuzzy but probably not for everyone. I love it.

Roxanne - Some of the worst acting you'll ever see, but it's sweet and fun and Steve Martin is incredibly lovable.

This is My Life - None of the stand-up is actually funny, but that's not what it's about. It's a mother and daughters journey full of quirky goodness.

United 93 - Fucking powerful. I saw it in the theater and once on DVD and it hit me just as hard the second time. It's not sappy, it's not political and it was made with the involvement of all the families. It's seriously, seriously good.

Wonder Boys - "I have an alternate version of the first chapter." Brilliant script. Brilliant cast. Full of awesome characters. So damn clever even if the title isn't.
