    Hiya Julzie!

    Dunno about fave... but there is a film I saw recently which was fantastic - "The Diving Bell and The Butterfly" - have you heard of it?

    It's a French film (subtitled) about the true story of a man who wakes up one day to find he is completely paralysed and only able to wink one eye, which is his only way of communicating with the outside world. Despite this, the guy writes a book about his experiences, by winking out each letter to form each word... and it's this book that the film is based on.

    Don't get the wrong idea though - I know this sounds grim but the main character has such a wicked sense of humour that it lifts the film from being maudlin to being uplifting and inspirational. And funny! :D

    Worth a look if you don't mind subtitles! :D

    Shawshank Redemption is fantastic... love that movie. Loved Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind as well. :D

    Amelie is a great film and La Vie en Rose (sorry, world cinema again! I can't help it - I usher at an Arts Cinema at weekends! :D).

    I loved Once as well, such a lovely film with beautiful music.

    I love Pay it forward. it's a simple concept of doing a good deed for another but rather than giving a good deed back to the same person you do it for someone else. Lovely Film..

    The Piano - shows that people are programmed to do one thing but can be led by their soul to make the right decision.

    Shawshank...with the wonderful Morgan Freeman.

    A Beautiful Mind...with Russel Crowe...based on a true story about a mathematical genius who has a split personality....who eventually won a nobel prize.

    Face Off. Just love the acting of John Travolta and Nicolas Cage.

    Chick flick...Bridget Jones...Just because.

    Angela's Ashes. (the books better).

    Schindlers List...although it was very sad it restorred my faith in humanity that this guy would risk everything to try and save lives. What an amazing human being he was.

    Stupid comedies....Anger Management...LOVE IT, Dodgeball - LOVE IT, Anchorman...with the legendary Ron Burgendy LOL, The Wedding Crashers.

    As you can see I like lots of very different types of films.
