    When I was student teaching, I was living with my grandparents. We had a snow day and we cuddled up on the couch with munchies and watched the entire "Gone With The Wind". That was 14 years ago and I still can't watch it without thinking of my grandparents.

    I have a hard time watching any movie twice, so there are very few I would consider. But, Legends of the Fall is certainly at the top of my short list.

    Isn't it funny how many of us like the same movies?

    Special-t, I love Galaxy Quest!
    Plus, Princess Bride, You've Got Mail, League of Their Own, Auntie Mame (with Rosalind Russell), the X-Men movies, plus a bunch more.

    My husband loves the Kill Bill movies and watches them everytime they are on, but he also loves Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail.

    Gee, I didn't want to say this because you'd think something was wrong with me, but I LOVE anything by Quentin Tarentino and the two Kill Bill movies are my favorites. All the women, especially Uma Thurman, are so strong in Kill Bill - love it!

    I didn't have a cable box because I didn't know my neighborhood got HBO and HBO on demand free as part of its Comcast cable package. They had to come repair something and brought the box. There are lots of movies on demand that I can't wait to see. It's nice to have all of your picks from this thread!!
