Yes, with Natalie Portman-I think she was only 12 when she was in Leon! :eek:

I have never heard of any of your top 3 Marly :o

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 09:14 PM
Ah, then I love that movie! It's rules. But it's not in my top 3. :p

I have never heard of any of your top 3 Marly

That's because they're oldies, in black and white. You know, with Clark Gable, Ginger Rogers, etc.

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 09:16 PM
oh "Back in the day" movies

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 09:19 PM
Yup. "Back in the day" movies are the best! :bounce: :bounce:

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 09:24 PM
I think it's about time I watched some BITD Movies-They'll probably..not probably ALWAYS be a BITD Movie on Sunday Afternoon.

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 09:27 PM
Then I highly recommend the three on my list. They're all comedies, and quite funny. Go to the local video store and rent one. ;)

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 09:33 PM
Will do, I don't have an excuse as the video store is about 2 mins away, just like my church :o :p

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 09:35 PM
You can pull a double feature then. :p

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 09:36 PM
LOL!! Yeah a BITD Movie in Church :o :p

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 09:37 PM
Better a BITD movie in church than a current one, like, say, American Pie. :p

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 09:41 PM
Or "Indecent Sexploitation" :o What would the bishop say ;) :p

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 09:43 PM
Don't know much about bishops, but my preacher wouldn't like it much! :o Especially as I'm a VBS teacher, and should be above such things. :o :p

Then again, you never know what bishops in America would say, as so many of them seem to be corrupt. :rolleyes:

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 09:56 PM
I know, so I've heard in the news Marly :o

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 09:58 PM
It's ridiculous, isn't it?

And they call themselves men of God.

:fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

Pardon me for pulling an Ana :p but I think the situation calls for it. :o

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 10:00 PM
Yeah I know itz terrible. What is the latest? I haven't heard much here for a coupla dayz?

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 10:10 PM
The last big thing I heard was about this big convention a bunch of the bishops or archdiocese or whatever (don't know the terms, sorry) had in Texas. They were going for a "zero tolerance" approach when it comes to priests who abuse children and their superiors who help cover it up. I think what they ended up deciding was to suspend priests who were suspected/proven child molesters but not defrock them.

I don't know what's gonna happen in regards to all the lawsuits and stuff that are going on up North. One thing is for sure, none of these guys should be allowed near children again.

Ditto at that Marly.

07-20-2002, 10:23 PM
I just realised on of my top 3 films "Primal fear" deals with this issue.

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 10:27 PM
Really? I've never seen it; guess I'll have to go down to the video shop myself!

On a mostly unrelated note, the movie "Seven" is really good. Have you seen it?

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 10:33 PM
Yeah, The archbishop is a sexual abuser. I would really recommend it , it is quality It has got the kinda ending that'll shock you for ages. I was still dwelling on it for about a week and a half later :eek: :eek:

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 10:35 PM
No, I havent seen 7even yet, I really should've by now :o Have you seen 12 monkeys with Brad and Bruce? Brad Pitt is hillarious in it.

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 10:44 PM
Haven't seen 12 Monkeys yet. Seven rules, though!

Ooh, a movie where you actually think, as opposed to the stupid drivel usually aimed at teenagers? I'm all for it! :bounce:

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 10:49 PM
Me too :bounce: Twelve Monkeys is hella confusing though :confused: I only understood the whole story in the final scenes :o :p

I'll go into typical Boy Mode-DIE HARD!!! YEAH!!!! *Boys then proceed to Hi-5 eachother like rejects*:o :p Nah but seriously Die-Hard Rockz 1,2 & 3

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 10:53 PM
I've never seen any Die Hards either. I like the first Mission: Impossible, though, and the James Bond movies are cool, even if the women are sooo stupid.

If you want to see something funny, watch "In Like Flint" and "Our Man Flint." They're like the original Austin Powers from the '60s; they're horribly cheesy take-offs on the Bond movies starring James Coburn. They give me fits.

Angele

And on that note :o

1) A walk to Remember
2) Love and Basketball
3) Finding Forrester and Save the Last Dance :)

Goonergal
07-20-2002, 10:57 PM
I have never fully watched a James bond :o I just can't stand em just like Stars Wars/Trek-sorry Marly ;) Thanx 4 the tip-Speaking of Flint's-"The People Vs Larry Flynt" is excellent I'd recommend that- but the main subject is about *cough* Porn :o but it aint sleazy......Woody Harrelson & Courtney Love a great in it.

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 10:59 PM

Pff they're all great movies :D A walk to Remember is great, even though I bawl everytime I see it! it's te ultimate tragic love story! Love and Basketball I'll admit is a tad gooberish :o but it rocks anyway! Save the last dance is awesome and not *too* gooberish. Finding Forrester is excellent and not gooberish at all, you'd like it :p

Murkofan

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 11:30 PM
Why can't Juliet wake up in time-Damnit!

Because it's a tragedy, not a comedy. :p I agree, though, it sucks.

Heyyy, Cilla, they Anakin/Padme romance in Star Wars is reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet...;)

Angele
07-20-2002, 11:34 PM
A walk to remember is better than Romeo and Juliet, at least for me because Romeo and Juliet leaves me pissed off cuz if she would of just woken up in time :fiery: but a walk to remember it can't be avoided... and A walk to Remember is just so perfect :angel:

Which book? :confused:

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 11:42 PM
A Walk to Remember, you goober! The movie was based on the book of the same name by Nicholas Sparks. Read it!

Angele
07-20-2002, 11:44 PM
ok ok I will... but I hear the movie is much better :D

Murkofan
07-20-2002, 11:46 PM
Eh, can't really argue that, as I haven't seen the movie.

I did really enjoy the book, though. The ending in ambiguous, so I choose to think it ends happily. :D

Btw, did you ever find any of those books I gave you to look for?

Senator Padme Amidala Skywalker, wife of Anakin Skywalker AKA Darth Vader, and mother of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, of course! Natalie Portman's character!

On 2nd thoughts who cares!

You suck. :p

I forgot the list in the car

So do you! :p

Thousands?
Which kind of? Romance for women?
CI was amazing?Have you read the novel by de Laclos? I know 3 movies done by it and CI is the worst of it, the film is saved by outstanding music.
There are plenty of war-genre movies like Apocalypse Now or Catch-22 better than some Ashes....its like comparing :inlove: Inter :inlove: to Celtic..
Yep, its Scarface and I don't believe I wrote it, at least nobody saw it..

Well, maybe about a thousand :unsure: i may have exaggerated slightly.

No, i've not read it and i've not seen those other films based on it either, if i had, maybe CI wouldn't make my list :p
Ashes and Diamonds is a war-genre movie.
I believe Celtic and Inter have met in one huge match, the 1967 European cup final that we won. :D
