Le Cinema

I enjoy good movies and am always looking for new ones to watch. I wouldn't call myself a connoisseur of the silver screen ... yet, but after taking a french and italian cinema class, I appreciate movies from all decades. Any suggestions are appreciated (or any good books you've read would be awesome).

I want to make an ongoing list here of movies to see... and possibly my Top 10 of all time. For now I'll start with this article I came across: "20 Movies That Make Men Cry". Most of these I haven't seen, but the ones I have aren't too bad.

1. Brian’s Song (1971)

2. Rudy (1993)

3. Saving Private Ryan (1998)

4. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)

5. The Natural (1984)

6. Shawshank Redemption (1994)


1. Rudy

2. Braveheart

3. Dan in Real Life

4. In Good Company


...Groundhog Day, Angels and Demons, Bourne, Fletch, Remember the Titans, Hoosiers, Yes Man, The Lord of the Rings, The Blind Side, Invictus...

This is a fun idea. I'm excited to see what your top 10 end up being. I've read some fun books lately, but they are kind of chicky so I don't know if you would like them, but I really like Nicholas Sparks and I read the non-ficational book called Escape (leaving a polygamist community) and I thought it was intersting. I'm always looking for good books too...have to looked at the webiste It has some pretty good reviews of books.
