    Don't think I've ever seen Spellbound. But you forgot,
    7. What about Harry?

    8. Harrison Ford movies: Presumed Innocent/Witness/Hanover St.
    9. Cary Grant movies: Mr. Blandings ...dream house/ An affair to remember& many others
    Really there are so many movies that WERE truly good. I don't think today's movies are quite up to the old standards. All we have is better technology.

    That's kinda odd that two of your favorite movies are a celebration of Christ's death and a parody of his life. Life of Brian is a good movie, though I probably didn't get most of the jokes the first time I saw it.

    I suppose for me the diffrence is that Life of Brian I take for exactly what it is comedy, and nothing more. Really if you look at a lot of what was in that movie, they really are trashing liberalism, and Romans. Ex the discussion in the stands with the whole "Reg has a right to want a baby even thought he can't actually have one which is nobody's fault not even the Romans"......... You know it is possible to be a Catholic or Christian and still have a good sense of humor :beer:

    Did you see the movie? I thought Brad Pitt was excellent in it.
