Back to the future 2 electric boogaloo

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 :(

      Wow!  Mondays will never be the same.   That's also an amazingly fast timeline for a government agency to act/hire.  Must mean they really want you. Congratulations, Shawna❣️

      This is REALLY GOOD, MetaLicious!  I had a rap beat-box going in my head the whole time I was reading it and it just clicked.  and I don't even like rap. Hah!   Keep writing❣️

      All i can add is: Why?  Are the folks in Idaho sure that the entire population will transition?  Are the women scared of how good we look?   Just nasty.  It's probably just a bit of Republican dogma.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Thank you for your reply, Sally.  Between your response and @Susan R's this is comforting. Maybe I already knew the answer?  this in not a trans/LGBTQ+, or cis-man/woman issue, its a human issue.  How we treat each other as human beings.  That's my experience in life also, that people who are secure in themselves will treat other with understanding and respect ... and those that aren't ... ?  Well I guess it doesn't matter what "category" they identify with. Thanks again❣️

      That's such a sweet bike Kymmie. I had a 2007 RK that I had to sell after my divorce. I sold it for $6k. I still shed a tear over that one.   Yesterday changed Shawna's and my lives forever. What once seemed hypothetical is now very very real! We both posted about it!   Have a good day!   Patti

      Good morning! Supposed to get up to 90 today so nice and warm. I only have a 4 day week I took Friday and Saturday off because my wife is having a procedure. I had a talk with my wife last night and I told her that if things work out this weekend I want to come out to brother in law and the people that live close to me. The physical changes haven’t started yet, but mentally I’m tired of presenting male in my personal life. She just told me you do you!

      Does she need any more help Hon? If so, sign me up.   Yes. Things are getting very very real, very very fast! TTYL   XXOO   PA

      Up early.  230am and just couldn’t get back to sleep as my Mind is still buzzing from yesterday’s events. I posted about it in another thread as to not junk up this one with my drivel.    Just now getting my first mug of coffee in me then a quick shower.  Gotta keep the wound clean.  More planning, calling, and receiving of guests who hopefully will be buying more of Shawns hobby toys.   I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

      Well GF when I get there we all will have to hit some stores. I do like shopping and I can literally abuse a clearance rack section in minutes.  I show up to a dressing room with a look on my face like “ Yeah right!  5 items only my arse!”  And then proceed to cram my card in there with me.  Lol Id love to go a shop with you! I can speak for Patti and say she is a bit of a shop-acholic too and she is tall as well.  Perhaps she can point you to some places out there.

      So this Monday was an amazing day.  As some may be aware I have plans to move across country to be with @Patti Anne and start a new life as Shawna.  Leaving VT and Shawns life closed and in my past.  Our plans were coming together but we really had not set any real dates but we finally planned a week long trip for me to go visit, see the house and area and just meet Patti face to face finally.  This was set for June 20th.  An obvious condition to moving is finding a job.  So during my Orchi recovery time off I decided one task was to start job hunting.  So I polished up my resume and changed it to read “Shawna Leigh Lxxxxxxxxx” and I uploaded it on Indeed last Thursday evening. Friday morning a job pops up for a Biomedical Equipments Technician in the VA hospital 15 minutes from Patti’s house and I naturally apply as this is what my current job is.  Less then 30 minutes later I get an answer and request for a phone interview Monday morning which I accept.  Patti and I are just beside ourselves with this lucky opportunity but we contained it since nothing was set or done.  It’s just an interview.   Monday morning they call.  Long story short they want to hire me.  Pay me $15k more per year then I’m making now and a $1500 moving bonus.  Ummmmm.  Ok I can do that! The catch.  They need me like yesterday.  “When can you be out there?” They ask.  I had told them originally in my cover letter I planned to move to Oregon in late July/early August but give me an hour and let me make some arrangements. So I naturally call Patti and the “fun” begins!  My Ex now roommate gets involved and we all try to figure out the quickest reasonable exit plan for me to be out there.   So I call back and tell them. “Give me an offer letter by this Thursday and I will put in my two weeks notice. I will need 5 days to travel and I can be there on site Monday the 29th.”  Deal! Done and my offer letter was emailed within minutes.  Holy cow everything was a whirlwind after that.   So I spend the rest of the day making arrangements to move, sell my crap, make plans. Etc.  Then later yesterday evening out of the blue an old HS acquaintance contacts me saying she wants to send me a ton of clothing purses and lots of other things. All I need to do is pay the shipping. We Chatted for a while and  it was unbelievable what she plans to just give me.  Sent all sorts of pictures of her “horde” and believe me. It’s All high end things. Purses jewelry clothing coats jackets dresses. Etc.  Apparently she is in therapy for a very bad and negative shopping compulsion and part of that is purging her collection and “I’m helping her by taking it.” She said.  Well I love to help people do what’s a girl to do? I barely knew her in HS but we are friends on Facebook.  She has been following my transition there and decided to message me with the request and offer.   So now I have hundreds of items costing thousands of dollars being shipped to my new home for the price of “just shipping”.  Yes Mondays are not so bad a day for me anymore wouldn’t you agree?
