Chick Flicks

Recommended Posts

Guest Elizabeth K

In another TOPIC 'Fried Green Tomatoes" the movie, was mentioned. GREAT chick flick! When I first saw it I loved it - then I thought I understood. BUT now my brain is rewired - fueled by the proper fuel! WOW

MTF here - sorry guys

All you newly minted women need to go back and watch the classic Chick Flicks! I gar-u-tee-you its a different world for you now - and you will realllllly get into the gendre!

My list (please comment and add others if you can?)

Thelma & Louise - buddy film of course - introduced Brad Pitt, by the way

Nine to Five - I identified with the Jane Fonda character

Pretty Woman - oh that Julia Roberts! I wanna be just like her!

Steel Magnolias (Filmed in Louisiana - I was around EVERYONE of those women growing up Southern)

Bridget Jones's Diary - and also Jerry McGuire

Four Weddings and a Funeral - and just about all Andie McDowell movies - like Groundhog Day (not a real chick flick)

Dirty Dancing - dear Patric Swayze - met him once

Until September - cried

When Harry Met Sally

and of course the other Meg Ryan films - Sleepless in Seattle - You've Got Mail

Waiting to Exhale - OMG - Empowered African American Women - and you will identify with each one regardles of your ethnic origins!

Titanic - seriously romantic!!!

Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood and similarly, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - girlfriend films

Terms of Endearment - if you can handle Jack Nicholson's overbearing portrayal

And an old one or two:

Breakfast at Tiffany's - a study in 1960's fashion - elegant

Casablaca

What was the one with the two witches that were sisters - Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kiddman?

OTHERS?

OK, I am seriously old and out of touch with the newer movies.

"It Happened One Night"

"The Philadelphia Story"

"The Shop Around The Corner" Remade as "You've Got Mail"

"An Affair To Remember"

"Brief Encounter"

"Pillow Talk"

"Barefoot In The Park"

"Splash"

"Romancing The Stone"

"Working Girl"

"Beaches"

"The Princess Bride"

"Roxanne"

"Ghost"

"A League Of Their Own"

"Bringing Up Baby"

"Gone With The Wind"

That's all for now except one for the guys too - "Brian's Song" (1971 - with Billy Dee Williams and James Caan)

You are allowed to cry during this one guys!

Even the theme can evoke a few tears, here is the best recording in my opinion from Brass on Ivory - Henry Mancini and Doc Severinsen.

Love ya,

Sally

<_< Dumbest story in the world. Sorry , has to do with being "pushed" to having him for a class hero.

I am sorry, I have had a few really good books destroyed by having them forced at me by schools and teachers I didn't like.

People should be allowed to pick their own heroes.

The bond between the two men was amazing and I never cared for all of the people talking about the racial part of it - a non factor to me as it has always been, I just loved the theme of the dedication between the wo friends and team mates at a time of extreme homophobia most 'buddy films' included a lot of fist sights between the two men to reassure the audience that they were straight - only the appearance of their wives in the film.

I still think it is a great film, I am sorry that you cannot enjoy it.

Love ya,

Sally

Love Actually - follows the story of like 10 couples in the UK. Amazing cast! Not much crying though... entirely happy :D

Remember Me - A-MAZING new release movie. The less you know the better. It has Edward from Twilight and Claire from Lost (with an American accent!) in it. Warning: will make you cry.

Seven Pounds - Great movie with Will Smith. Unique story - another "the less you know the better" film.

A Walk to Remember - explosively sad. I haven't seen it for a few years, though... need to watch it again.

Love Story - classic!! "love is never having to say you're sorry"... written by the same guy who wrote yellow submarine I think

Chocolat - Johnny Depp. :blush:

Mamma Mia - this is especially good if you like ABBA

Notting Hill - Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts... predictable plot, but very well done! funny and tear-jerk-y in parts

500 Days of Summer - amazing indie film that was creatively done. it skips around the past 500 days of a couple's relationship

He's Just Not That Into You - again, predictable plot, but well done IMO. funniest parts are the "talking heads" of women with relationship advice

I would add: Love Story, My Fair Lady, and West Side Story. All old classics but beautiful films.

Looks like most of the classics are covered. Mean Girls is my favorite recent chick flick. I freakin <3 that movie. After that Lindsay Lohan became...well, what she is now.

Also, I don't see Heathers anywhere on this thread. Very much a dark comedy with chick flick elements. One of Winnona Riders best films ever imo.

Interesting side story to 'Brian's Song'. I grew up in Chicago in the 50's and 60's and Gale Sayers and Brian Piccolo were written about all the time (and practically legends during that time). I even watched some games. Most of the story is true. And it is a very touching story.

I like all those Frank Capra mushy movies - Mr Deeds Goes to Town, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, A Wonderful Life. Jean Arthur, Donna Reed, and Ingrid Bergman (from Casablanca). Now those were heroines to adore.

Though Laura Linney, Meg Ryan for a few golden movies, and a few other current leads are close.

Hugs,

Chloë

I just LOVE chick flicks, funny my wife avoids them like the plague. I see that NotClaire has mentioned it but to me Notting Hill is at the top of the list. It would be utterly impossible for me to not be sobbing like a baby at the ending. I love all of Julia Roberts movie's. My wife and me are opposites, sometimes I think she is trans.

But anyways in our house she watches horror and action macho stuff and I watch love stories and romance and I'm the one that ends up with wet eye's and runny makeup.

Love, Chandra

I have always loved the 30s classic films. Frank Capra was so good -his films are classics-not just as "chick flicks".

At least I finally understand why the moden chick flicks just never worked for me.

Give me Shrek or Pirates any day.:)

eh, even over a year of HRT i still can't stomach those kind of movies, the last handful of movies i watched were; Ghost in a Shell-stand alone complex second gig- individual eleven, Ma Vei en Rose, Ready to Rumble, GI Jane, Brewster's Millions, District nine, Powder Blue(VERY good), Suspect Zero(awesome),and Necrosis. So, ya.. some of the movies listed I have seen, but frankly chick flick/romantic comedies don't do it for me, they are all so formulaic and predictable... both my sister s in law watch them, and they make me wanna laugh how shallow and boring they are.

I've lost count of the amount of chick flicks we own - my partner loves them, and I'm forced to watch them.

Give me something by Park Chan-Wook or Shirow anyday.

Chocolat

Finding Neverland

The Man Who Cried

And for the Aussies here-

Arizona Dream

All of these movies are Johnny Depp flicks. Unfortunately Arizona Dream was only released in Australia. So If you want it you have to get it from some place like eBay. I haven't checked in several years to see if it has been brought here to the USA, so my info may be old on it.

But all of these movies are great chick flicks.

Eat Pray Love,

My wonderful spouse and I watched this last night. We started with her on the couch and me in the EZ chair. We ended it with both of us on the couch in each others arms. We are so lucky to have each other. My word is “Life” what is yours?

Somewhere In Time

I watch that & think "I only wish. . ."

Jane Seymour as an early, liberated woman (her character was modeled after Maud Adams.) Although it was rather amusing to watch and see which guy she's going to wind up with, her manager or the love struck, time traveling Christopher Reeve. (In real life, both Maud Adams and her manager were gay.)

I watch the scene over and over where Reeve's character, to kill time before dinner, strolls the hotel Hall of Fame and comes face to face with the Seymour painting. And oh the music! I imagine myself, in similar straits, finding a portrait of the late Evelyn Nesbit back in the Nineteen teens, and then hunkering down for some serious time travel attempts.

Children of a Lesser God

I don't want to give much away. But it deals with a person who is disabled and what happens in her life. I cried many times.

      Hi Elissa! Welcome to Transpulse! My mom  took about a year to come around (sort of), my dad took about 3 months. Initially they were very hostile to it. I kept in touch, and basically showed them it was not the end of the world and it was what was best  for me.   Hugs, Marcie   .

      I didn't get to make it to this years march as the sap is flowing on the farm.  I certainly enjoyed the march last year.  Here is a picture from that event. what a great group of women.  I got there early and had a great time simply relating to others.                 Hugs,   Charlize

      I agree that we may well not be much better off here in the US.  There is definitely a backlash and in some areas or with certain demographics our safety doesn't exist.  Fortunately there are also many who are much more accepting than ever.  I have to look at that bright side. A bit of a Pollyanna ?   Hugs,   Charlize

      Sad to say, this is running about the same as it is here in the U.S. and may not be as bad in a couple of places, but still it is pretty bad overall.  Great Britain has about the same stats on H8ers, minus the KKK of course, but the Fundamentalist and Roman Catholic influences are used as the same excuses to just plain hate from what I have heard.
