    This thread is inspired by Sian's Sound of Music thread.

    My all time favourite and there are several I really enjoy and find worthy of more than one viewing is, The Blues Brothers. I have watched it in excess of 20 times.

    What is your favourite ??

    Singing in the Rain is my all time favourite.

    I've got lots of other top films, and my top 3 would probably be Cinema Paradiso, The notebook and Muriels Wedding. Or anything by Baz Lurhman

    Moulin rouge... Never fails to make me cry.
    Closely followed by quite a few others but labyrinth springs to mind-amazing childhood memories... "you remind me of the babe"

    Films in general... I love watching films.

    Sound of music though... you just can't beat it, speshally at this time of year.

    Although my Ipod just played Grease Lightning at me, so I might have to watch that now!

    Casablanca. For my lovely Christmas Day on my own, I watched it with quite a lot of wine and some chocolate. Bliss!!

    Actually it was on twice over the last week, but I only watched it once. After all, I have seen it so many times that I can recite almost all the script from memory!!

    I hadn't realised how many times I've watched these two movies in particular until I started quoting them! I guess that makes them favourites, though there are others.

    The Secretary - I wouldn't watch this with my kids (even though they are both over eighteen!) but I think it's a beautiful love story. Although, come to think about it, I probably wouldn't watch this with my parents as well!
