ya sure you do not mean breaking 2 electric boogallo ? It was a move about break dancing in 1984. And has nothing to do with the back to the future movies.

'Mother Night' based on the novel of the same name by Kurt Vonnegut.

Its about an American playwright who marries a famous German actress and becomes a secret Spy for the Allies during WWII while appearing to the world as a traitor and rabid anti-Semitic propagandist for the cup cakes. As Nick Nolte moralizes in the film, "Be careful who you pretend to be, because you'll end up who you're pretending to be."

Not to be watched if you are feeling sad, as its heartbreaking. :(

I have too many favorites. Yes I know that really doesn't make sense.

I watch Blues Brothers every year on the anniversary of my father's death because that was his favorite movie. A bit morbid I suppose but it is what it is.

We do the same. Actually, from about mid-October through the end of December it's always at the ready, it's one of my favorites.

I have to say my ALL TIME favorite movie, though is a toss-up between A Beautiful Mind, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Breakfast at Tiffany's.

For me it would be a toss up between Starwars, Pirates of the Caribbean, or NIghtmare Before Christmas. Can't say that I really go for meaningful or culturally significant movies.

Star Wars was one of the most culturally significant movies of all time lol. It's practically religion to a large part of the North American population.

LOL yeah but not what some would call meaningful. I love Star Wars, I'm wearing a starwars tee as I type this :o and it may be almost a sub-religion for me as well.. I just like fun movies! If I'm going to waste 2 hours of my life watching something It certainly will not be Citizen Caine! lol :D

Good to see more Nightmare fans here. I also do this between Halloween and Christmas. Definitely one of my favorite movies of all time. I used to sing Sally's Song to my daughter to calm her down when she was an infant, cradling her in the rocking chair.

Hi Christina,

Out of threads thus far I'm surpised that no one thought much of "The Matrix" triology, particularly the first movie. For me, the concept that humans lived out their lives in an illusion of reality does not fail to hit home with me as I came to grip with my own illusion of a false reality of living as a male while my truer self as a female slumbered away.

Big Star Wars nerd. Blues Brother is another one of my favs. And I love NBC, it's one of the films that ALWAYS cheers me up when I'm sad. I got to see it again in theaters last October, in 3D, at Disney. I was so giddy, hadn't seen it on the big screen since I was a kid.

I like bizarre combinations of silly/sad/funny films; Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Brick, and Almost Famous are three of my tops. Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy is insanely good, too.

I do love Shirley Valentine - its such a happy/sad film, the only one i have watched a number of times, and i love Greece (the place not the movie)

i just bought a smart tv and am enjoying streaming films - i went onto Blinkbox and they had a number of gay/lesbian/trans ones - i watched "Gigola" which was about a young butch/possibly transman from one or two comments she/he made about being born into a female body - set in l960's Paris, its in French but with English subtitles - brilliant - ended up buying it and there are a couple of good butch/femme ones too.
For anyone interested in f2m i also watched and bought "Tomboy" again in French with subs. a really super, touching film about a l0 yr old girl who clearly saw herself as a boy - well worth a look - you can get the films on amazon as well..............Blinkbox, dont know it you can get this in the USA, is a Tesco venture and some films are only around the £2.50 to rent, which i thought excellent value - i got the Sooty smilie from another site.............avatar6347_1.gif.jpg
An Aside...........
I love sooty - when i was camping in summer, the missus sent me to the local shop in a small village, it had 2 loaves, 2 bottles of washing up liquid, you get the picture - a smelly old woman serving and equally smelly dogs running around the place - anyway, it just so happened that week was in the news that SOOTY was 60 yrs old - when i walked through the door and up to the counter, i noticed in front of me a charity box for something or other with a sooty character with a slot in the top of his head - so i piped up, and this was the first thing i said - "good morning - did you know that Sooty's 60 years old" - she looked at me as if i were completely barking - i bought one of the loaves (even though it was stale - what is it about English village shops, no wonder theyre all closing down, lol!

For me it would have to be Tron (the original 1982 version, although I don't mind the sequel). I saw a clip of it on Disney Time on BBC1 and was absolutely blown away by the visual style of the film. I have an old VHS copy, 3 different DVD versions and the Blu-ray version and loads of merchandise and collectables. The soundtrack by Wendy Carlos is brilliant if you like old-school electronic music.

For me, I think it's got to be the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Watched the extended editions on Blu-Ray recently - absolutely stunning, beautiful. I'm really into grand adventures, and this takes the crown. Personal favourite of the three is the Two Towers... mind was blown in the cinema :)

As for others, although I like other popular series like Star Wars, Harry Potter etc, I'm going to go with Inception. I really liked the premise, and it's execution has left a lasting impression on me.

Lastly, I'll go for the Shawshank Redemption. I really liked Religious Studies class anyway, but watching this film is my favourite part of that class over the years. Morgan Freeman is awesome :)

PS. Consolation prize to the Lion King. I love Disney films, and this is my favourite out of all of them. I didn't quite cry when Mufasa died, but it was extremely emotional :(

      I forgot to mention , the regret I have for not speaking up a long time ago. At dinner at a Hometown Buffet dinner with my kids and dad, for Father’s Day, my dad made some some comment about gay people, and I didn’t say anything. My kids and I just stopped and stared at each other. I felt bad cause my daughter, who came out to me and her mom, looked at me, and I didn’t say anything at the time. I still feel bad , cause I should have  stuck up for my daughter, and immediately corrected him. Needless to say, the Father’s Day dinners with my dad and my kids became scarce, cause of what was said and not corrected. By not saying anything, it enables others to continue the hate. The haters continue to oppress and the cycle is not broken.  A couple of months ago my dad asked if my daughter was dating anyone, and I told him yes, a girlfriend of hers, but I don’t think it clicked. He is not both hard of hearing and he is on the verge of dementia, or he is just plain old, old. I’ll make sure he understands when the next opportunity arises. I’m tired of of people like this going on yapping crap and not correcting them. Their loss.

      My mom and dad didn’t go to my wedding because I didn’t finish college first. That set the tone for the rest of of my marriage , with my (ex)wife and kids. They had some regrets later, but it sucks when family isn’t a part of our life choices. My parents are old old now, so there wouldn’t be much of a discussion about who I am now, nor if and when they find out their granddaughter is a lesbian. If they do feel compelled to say any derogatory about the LGBTQ community, I would probably shut  the comments down with an ultimatum,  that would inform them they have the choice to accept all on my family and friends that may or may not be LGBTQ, or we would not be in contact until they do so. I am at the point in life where I choose not to fall into the oppressive actions of hateful people. I know everyone’s life isn’t there yet, and I hope someday people don’t have to feel threatened by these hateful people.  Best of luck with your journey.

      Well, if dad is paying for it, I guess he has some say so on the issue, but little does he know how fun some Enby's can be.  If he gets to know a few -------- but I guess he won't.  His loss entirely.  I feel bad, but for now you are having the right attitude about it.

      Naturally, I've been wondering whether there are any entries in the 63 pages (currently) of this thread that involve a Rubber Chicken.   Search claims that to not be the case, but I have my doubts, given the stealthiness of Rubber Chickens, and how friends have surprised me with them! 🙂   Astrid

      (Disclaimer: I am not out to my family because they are against anything LGBTQ related)   So it was a normal family dinner with me and my family sitting down to some dang good soup I'd slaved over today. The topic of conversation? My wedding. Personally, I'd like to get married someday, so I was joking with my brother that because he wasn't being nice to me that he was no longer invited.   Then, suddenly, out of the blue, my father chimes in with: "You can't invite any nonbinary people".   I'm silent out of shock (Because how does he even know that word!?!?!?) The rest of my family are silent, but soon start asking questions.   Turns out, he'd seen on the news today that Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye came out as nonbinary.  I probably should have found it hurtful, or have been scared, but to be honest, I just laughed. Even if it was an inappropriate moment to do so.  Because he said that to me, who identifies as a nonbinary gender. Who would be the one of the two people that the wedding is all about. God, if he knew. 😅 Guess I'm not allowed to be invited to my own wedding anymore!

      In my experience you find good people when you are happy confident and okay being alone. When you are like that it’s like you share the best of yourself. You give off an awesome vibe and people like that. That’s when I’ve always met my long relationships.    Being trans is unfortunately something with negative connotations. So are lots of things. But people find partners that love them for who they are. There are no limiting factors. And you never know who that person could be. So all anyone can do is live. Be yourself and be your best. And not worry about it. I’d hate to be sad about it forever just waiting. I’d just go live life. And be me.

      Good evening from here, sipping coffee after dinner, tastes great, and glad to be home after 13 days on the road down and up the west coast. Here is a pic I took from across the marina in SD and hotel complex I stayed at in the background...
