Made my own Meme

Because I am an instigator:

Ten Movies That I Think Everybody Should See If They Haven't and Why:

1. The War of the Buttons Why? Little Naked Irish Kids fight for their honor!

2. Spirited Away Why? It is strikingly beautiful.

3. Secretary Why? It is teh kinkiest love story ever and it still makes sense.

4. Gosford Park Why? Murderous Upstairs/Downstairs with Maggie Smith

5. A Room with a View Why? Most romantic kiss scene ever.

6. Brassed Off! Best "Do you wanna shag?" lines ever! (girl: Do you want to come up for some coffee? Ewan: I don't like coffee. girl: I don't have any.)Plus Ewan.

7. Wo de fu qin mu qin (1999) ... aka The Road Home (International: English title) (USA: DVD title) ... aka My Father and Mother (literal English title) Why? Brilliantly moving love story told in an artisitcally gorgeous way.

8. Amélie Why? Gnomes.

9. The Girl with the Pearl Earring Why? Colin Firth for the girls and Scarlett Johanssen for the boys.

10. And just for kicks Shaun of the Dead Why? The word "fuck" is said 77 times. And it gives you amazing new uses for a cricket bat.

Feel free to post your own list. I would love to see it and get some good recommendations.

Thank you for this. I didn't think I could come up with ten movies to recommend, but once I got started, it was easy. By the way, could you please give me a quick tutorial on putting in links on the movie titles?

"The War of the Buttons" is so good.
Damn, may have to go rent it now that I'm thinking about it

Brassed Off is such a good film! Pure Brit at it's best. Without the whole posh southerner thing. How I love the north! Get in. You're right, those lines are soooo good. That film makes me remember why i hate the iron lady.
