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 :(

      Heathick I would spend time watching people to see how women carry themselves and move differently than men.  Also notice now women speak, in the inflection and tone they use.  You don't have to go "over the top" and get all super fem.  Most women are not, they're just themselves.  You can be also.    Jani

      Wow Charlize, that's something. 3 cords should be a good supply for winter. We only go through about a cord per winter here, depends.    Have a great day   C -

      Debra,  Did they catch the thief?  Amazing that they tried to sell them in a legitimate market.   Samantha,  Admitting to ourselves who we are and then accepting that is a long term process.  I wouldn't worry too much about being hairless.  Many men are.   If it becomes too difficult then showering at home may be the only alternative.   I'm almost done cutting the firewood for the house.  I've got 3 cords cut, split and covered on pallets ready to move near the front door.  We unfortunately have hundreds of dead ash trees on the farm.  The emerald ash borer is killing them all.  I feel like crying as i take them down but at least they make great firewood.  I've  also set some pieces aside for hafting axes and hammers.  In time wooden baseball bats will disappear. Another ecological disaster.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Good morning everyone. Woke up yesterday morning and confidently announced to myself, "I'm a trans woman". Made feel feel incredibly content and happy. Went about my day and left a voice mail for a endocrinologist, "I'm a trans woman'. And it felt so good to say it aloud and to someone else, even if it was an answering machine. Lost a bit of this bravado when back with my family last night, butbtjis morning, I'm feeling good again. This site really has and continues to help me. Sorry rambling on. On a side note, I assume most of us here dont change and shower at the gym? Im reluctant to go to the mens locker room with a shaved body. Any thoughts?

      Howdy, I'm a fellow "J-nerd" but I have to admit, I haven't read the mangaka you mentioned. I prefer action genre. My current obsession is Boku no Hero, which I follow the manga and anime for. Looove One Punch man. Still watch classics like DBZ, Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin. Liked Naruto before the Great Ninja War arc--by then I was "character fatigued"... I also like some of CLAMP's work. Also LOVE Naoki Urasawa's masterpiece Monster.   My first ever manga was Fushigi Yuugi by Yu Watase. That began it all for me. She is a very talented artist too. My only thing with her is that all her stories follow the same love triangle pattern and I don't enjoy how predictable that is. But the Fushigi Yuugi will always have a special place with me as my first.

      This is a seinen manga that has both a FtM main character and FtM side character. It depicts gender dysphoria at the onset of puberty.    For those of you who don't know, manga is Japanese comic books or graphic novels that are read from right to left. Seinen manga is catergorized as "men's manga" because it deals with more adult issues. There is also shonen (boy's manga), shoujo (girls manga), and josei (women's manga).    Hourou Musuko is available to read online at mangareader.net, and is also available in hardback format on Amazon.

      A bit of a twister for me Vicky, but I get the gist. Over here that would be less of an issue, although has occurred in some of the more religious schools. I think my thoughts attune more directly with most of the population here in attempting avoiding confrontation as being no real issue rather than even the presenting of pronouns, as Carolyn examples, which does actually raise the issue in the minds of some.   On a wider front, there is becoming very much increasing resentment here of minority groups getting dis-proportionate representation. That is working against, in this example, trans people, turning what may only be a tricky situation into a confrontation in the minds of people who would otherwise live and let live. In this the press, both good and bad, are probably hindering as much as helping.   Tracy

      I think your instincts are serving you well, hon.  They are telling you that danger lies ahead if you come out when you're not ready.  I have always counseled young people here, as have Vicky and others, that they should not come out to parents if there is even a 50/50 chance it won't go well.  There are too many things that can go wrong, and only one thing that can go right, and to me, that's too big a risk.  So my advice has been to not come out to parents unless there is absolutely no other choice, that waiting until you can at least make legal decisions for yourself is too much to bear.   Keep learning about this stuff; talk to people you trust, talk to us, read up on it, gather information that you can someday give to your parents to help them understand you.  You'll survive the next couple of years, hon.  We want to keep you safe, and happy.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      If she were to ask that face on, my suggestion is to say that you are trying to discover exactly who you are, and that it does take some time.  Perhaps that could be an opening for you to get some counseling about your Gender Dysphoria with the help of your mom.  In most U.S. states, since you are an adolescent, doctors and therapists for your age group cannot discuss gender issues or other specified issues with your parents without your permission, unless you are actively suicidal or thinking about harming another person.  The therapist can become your helper to communicate with your mother and maybe father when the time comes that you are ready.  You can politely  tell her that some comments are not helpful, such as "how girly your figure is" or things like that.  Thank her for being your parent, but tell her you on a a journey of discovery in your mind and will communicate with her as you progress.  I have 3 adult children and had to butt out of their lives for some of their goals, which were hard for me, even though they are all three cis/het.
