Just thought I'd make conversation so what kind of fillms does everyone like, me I like loads of different kinds but I love romantic comedys & action films for the most part. I've seen so many it would be hard to choose 1 that I love above all but my top favourites would be.

Dragonheart - because unlike most films with Dragons in there not made out to be visious monsters

Gladiator - That film is just so amazing & so tragic at the same time ....Poor Maximus

Big Trouble in Little China - Because that film is so cheesy & funny you can't help but laugh

Pirate's of the Carribian 1,2 & 3 - because I'm obsessed with Pirate's as well as Dragons lol & Orlando Bloom lol

Kingdom of Heaven - Because I love all films with knights in them.....& Orlando Bloom is just a bonus \:-D

50 first dates - because I find it funny & sweet bless \:-D

LadyHawk - That film is just ...... Wow awsome, Romance & action all in one so amazing

I could go on forever but I think I'll stop there for now \:-D

So what about everyone else what kind of films do you love

- The Fisher King - simply mystical - this influenced me into developing a writing style that silently mixes fantasy with reality
- How To Train Your Dragon - with/has a strong message behing it !
- The Last Unicorn - unique
- The Dark Crystal - unique
- Star Wars (the first and original movie) - apart from the hype, it's a nice movie set within a universe that is inhabited by citizens of all imaginable races

I liked the Dark Crystal a lot more when I was about 10 than rewatching it a couple years ago when I bought the DVD.

In no particular order, and some of these would probably change if I answered again sometime:


Princess Mononoke

Final Fantasy, The Spirits Within
(the special eddition was one of the first DVDs I ever bought - I watched the movie then 2 of the full length comentaries in a row, one of which showed different scenes in various stages of production)

Blade Runner

Seven Samurai / The Magnificent Seven (the western remake)

They Call Me Trinity / Trinity is Still My Name

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The Secret of NIMH

Dragonslayer (special effects still hold up pretty well today)

Conan the Barbarian / Destroyer

Dirty Dozen

Ninja Scroll

Ghost in the Shell

The Thing

Strange Brew

Deathrace 2000

Tank Girl (speaking of unique)

I Liked Spirits within but only if I think of it as Spirits Within & not Final Fantasy Spirits Within. For a film that's an offshoot of the Final Fantasy Seires it's complete sh** but as a stand alone film it's not too bad.

They were a great new interpretation, but from an artistic point of view, I find others more creative - and impressive to me.

They will be far too dark for a children's book.
Judging from the pictures I sawso far.
Mr. Jackson will most likely expand the horror routeonce again.
Which I don't like at all - especially since The Hobbit is a children's book and not a Stephen King novel !

yeah but the Lord of the Rings Books are pretty Dark at times anyway, even though there supposed to be childrens books there still not the type of book you'd want to give to a kid thats faint of heart.

No. I don't consider LOTR as "children's ooks. Maybe the beginning of part I, yes, that maybe, but the rest - no.

Although I liked them very mich as a teenager.

But not for children.

There's a clear difference - especially in language - between LOTR and The Hobbit, imho.

I like adventure, fantasy, nature, SF, thriller, comedy, romantic, ...

Some titles ( or things) that plop up in my mind :
* most of the Disney movies and other cartoons !
* Seven years in Tibet
* Gorilla's in the Mist
* the movies of the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars
* the movies of Indiana Jones (especially with Sean Connery)
* the movies of Harry Potter (I've not seen the last movies, only the first 3 or 4 of the set)
* most of the romantic comedies ...
* and more ...


On 7th of february 2015 : I start a new adventure in the Divinity world of Original Sin,
it's a Fantastic Freaking Fabulous Funny ... it's my All Time Favorite One !
