Do you love watching movies? Yes, I do. Share all the movies that you loved watching and was worth your time. Language doesn't matter. A few lines on the theme/genre/story of the movie is also appreciated. Make sure its spoiler free. And hey don't embarass me with a list, one movie per post please

My share: Forrest Gump

A man with a low IQ has accomplished great things in his life and been present during significant historic events - in each case, far exceeding what anyone imagined he could do. Yet, despite all the things he has attained, his one true love eludes him. "Forrest Gump" is the story of a man who rose above his challenges, and who proved that determination, courage, and love are more important than ability.

Forrest joins the army for service in Vietnam, finding new friends called Dan and Bubba, he wins medals, starts a ping-pong craze, creates a famous shrimp fishing fleet, inspires people to jog, create the smiley, write bumper stickers and songs, donating to people and meeting the president several times. However this is all irrelevant to Forrest who can only think of his childhood sweetheart Jenny. Who has messed up her life. Although in the end all he wants to prove is that anyone can love anyone.

After watching the movie for 2 hrs 20min, I felt like I was glued to my chair for about 6 hours. One of my favourites and a movie that you should watch before you die

The King's Speech.

Bad enough for anyone to have a speech impediment but in addition to detailing this extremely well, the film offers a great insight into the royals of that period for anyone so interested. It also took great courage for the (then) Queen to take the initiative. A truly extraordinary woman. Great performances from all concerned and fully deserving of its four Oscars.

Killer Elite.

Maybe just another Jason Statham "bash 'em" movie with such a farcical, OTT story, until you realize it's based on truth. I was never in Oman but I was in Lebanon during this period and I can easily identify with some of these characters. So, watch the UK Gov earnestly trying to keep its dirty laundry firmly in the basket. Robert De Niro, as often, adds a special touch.

Generally, any Ridley Scott movie. Even the worst ones have something stylish to appreciate. And he likes to roll little things through other movies. Like the sax tune from Blade Runner played by a busker in Someone to Watch Over Me.

Alien was genuinely scary in 1979 even with the Giger previews in Omni magazine.

Bladerunner is my favourite.

Matchstick Men is my favourite too.

So many films to choose from but the ones that spring to mind and I seem to watch every time they get shown on TV are :-

Aliens
Apocalypse Now
Lost In Translation
Mad Max
Predator
The Matrix

One of the most memorable films I've watched in recent years - Let The Right One In (the original Swedish version).

Aliens is a cracking example of the rare occasion when a sequel is better than the original

If anyone want's to see IMO one of the most underrated actors at his best (Tommy Lee Jones) and also the cause of right v wrong really hammered home, and I mean really, then this is worth a watch too.
