I think that all movies are fantastic. They all create an emotion in me. Robin Williams when he realizes he he can fly in 'hook' or Indiana jones showing that you can be a book- worm as well as a adventurer. All movies are a communication or a message if you like from the writer saying please feel what I felt.

Wonder Boys - 2000 release
Robert Downey Jr. Toby Mcguire, Mike Douglas and (forgot name: Tom Cruise's wife) and others...great story about lost people found in a university and life together trying to write and become, teach and grow, and simple life's along the way really open life experiences that grab the viewer. I highly recommend if you love the written/spoken word and like the actors. Great sound track with really great songs and tunes, some drug use including liquor. Happy ending, well worth the watch. Seen it about 20 times and intend to watch it again.
Man On Fire

The War (with a young Kevin Costner and a breathtaking tree) very Southern
Stealing Heaven (a story of Abelard and Heloise)
Dead of Winter (extreme suspense w/o the blood and gore of today)
Dead Again (with young and married Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson
The Vanishing (an American remake of a foreign (?) film) with a heartbreaking young Kiefer Sutherland and a creepy Jeff Bridges

Fluke is a very sad movie. It's about a man who dies and is reincarnated as a puppy. He searches for his family but cannot convince them that he is the dad/father. I can honestly say it is the only movie I have cried watching. I have no shame in this fact.

BRONSON is the evolutionary journey of Mickey Peterson into Britain’s most notorious and dangerous living prisoner CHARLES BRONSON. Originally sentenced to 7 years in prison for burglary, Charles Bronson has been behind bars for 34 years,30 of which have been spent in solitary confinement. Charlie has forged an outrageous reputation through violence, hostage taking and rooftop protests to become a notorious figure in the British public’s conscious.
Taking the title role of BRONSON will be Bafta nominated actor Tom Hardy (Black Hawk Down, W Z, RocknRolla) who has been described by critics as one of the most promising young actors today.
