    The Truman Show & The Shawshank Redemption are great films for sure. The 'Bourne' series is also one of the best action franchises to hit the screen as well....though 'Pride and Prejudice' doesn't count as it's a series....and it had lines like "I say Mr Darcy" etc.....
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    I wish people would stop talking about bunnies.....

    That being said 'Watership Down' still stands out as a classic animation with serious overtones....

    I think Leaving Las Vegas is Nick Cage's best film. Well, maybe it's not his best, but it's my favorite film with Nick Cage in it.

    I have a hard time watching films with him in them now. He's distracting.

    Shawshank redemption is one of my all time favorite movies ever - this is one of my favorite parts:

    Distracting in what way?

    I did enjoy Raising Arizona but I haven't seen it in such a long time. Gonna put that and Leaving Las Vegas on the qeue too.

    "The green mile" is awesome

    One of my favorite old movies is "Imitation of Life"

    Looks like someone has posted the whole movie:
