    I am always looking for movies to watch at home in the evening. I am going to print out your list and try some of your favorites. I loved Wall-E, Gilbert Grape, Fargo, The Sting and Top Gun, but I am not familiar with many of this list.

    1. Ok, Carol, do that, just bear in mind that not all of these are easy watching. I may be a bit… hardcore at times. 😀

    Okay, I will read reviews first. I have a hard time with any graphic violence, however, it depends on the story. For example Bonnie and Clyde was just fantastic. It was the first time in movies that there was fairly graphic scene at the end, but it went so well with the movie, it was okay with me. Of course, by today’s standards, that was nothing. I really hate when it is put in just to tittlelate people.

    Into The Wild is one of the few examples in which the movie was better than the book, imo!

    1. Truthfully: I haven’t read the book. 🙂 But I can’t see it beat the film. For the music alone if not for anything else… And that bear.

        Hehe, true.
        In the book Krakauer wrote about some of his adventures as to compare them with the ones of the main character…that was not his story, I’m sorry :/ That was not the place to talk about his stuff. That’s why I did not appreciate the book.

        Eddie Vedder ❤ Bless him!
