Serendipity
The Notebook (although I liked the book better)
A walk to remember (although I liked the book better)
Sleepless in Seattle

Wow!

Nobody has even mentioned 'Into The Wild' yet! (Maybe someone did and I just overlooked it! Whoops!)

But yeah, 'Into The Wild' is my favourite film of all time only recently beating Fight Club to the top spot.

You should all watch 'Into The Wild' if you also love travelling. Best film ever, and by far the best travelling film ever!

It's on my top 10, probably #2 as travelling movie. And have to agree, great movie based on a true story.
Guy did an excellent job portraying the main character.

"Into The WIld" was a great film....but about a guy who was a woefully unprepared chucklehead. He went into the wild without a compass and only had boots because his last ride forced them on him. The boy died of starvation about ten miles from a place wherehe could get help.

I truly admire the kids ideals....I cannot match them but I admire them....but his cavalier planning of whatever he did was ridiculous...If you are looking for a story about a kid who decides to live in the wild on his own...but doesn't die because he's unprepared, try "My Side of The Mountain" with Teddy Eccles.

That being said, I agree that ITW was a terrific job all the way around. Very compelling stuff.

In this vein, the best movie ever is "Jeremiah Johnson"

I first read an excerpt of Jon Krakauer's book, ITW in Outside magazine. I then got the book from the library. A compelling story that caught my interest. Chris McCandless was in Vegas, Boulder City, Lake Mead, Slab City, Peach Springs, Topock and other locations I have visited. The film was excellent and hard to forget. Even though I knew the ending, it was very emotional for me when they used the actually photos recovered from his camera. That is the mark of a great movie. You care what happens to the characters. A great story well told.

Ok my pick is schmaltzy, but I've always loved "It's a wonderful life." A movie I can watch once a year and not get tired of it, I'd say 32 years and counting.

Brother Biff, good pull on "Jeremiah Johnson". I'm Glad you did not pick "Little Big Man".

Soupdog, they don't know my Biff nickname around here. How's thing round the homestead?
