My go at the movie meme

Funny how arbitrary some of my choices were, considering there are loads of movies I like as much or more than some of these. Some I would have used but others had already used them. Some I dismissed out of hand as way too obvious, though I know so many I included are too obvious as well. Lots of these are certainly not ones I think of as 'favorites' but rather just movies I liked and thought were good. Some were just toss-up choices of a certain actor/director/writing teams' work. 'Favorite' movie for me is much like 'favorite' song, each day you'll get a different answer...

Enough rambling; here they are...

I ran thru your photos really quickly and only 2 jumped out at me:

9. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
17. L.A. Story

I'll have to look at the rest of them again, as there are a few I think I'd know if I'd looked closer.
Ha, yes on both! Love those two. Choosing L.A. Story was one
of my 'toss-up' entries, as there's several Steve Martin movies
I love...
Like Joy, only two jumped out of me. One of them was the same - Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. The other is 4 - Dangerous Liaisons. How did I leave that off *my* list?
Ha, excellent! Yep, one of my absolute favorites; I'm glad you forgot to add it to your list -- I told David earlier that I'd have definitely included Sense and Sensibility, probably Amadeus, and possibly Importance of Being Earnest, as well. :-D

Heh, and after you identified The Great Escape (another I love),
I right away recognized it.

And hey, happy anniversary! I hope you'll be having a nice romantic evening.. :-)

I so want to play this game. :-) Guess I ought to cross Shawshank Redemption off my own list.

Okay, here goes:

2. Goodfellas
7. Raising Arizona
10. Shawshank Redemption
11. The Usual Suspects (scratch another from my list)
14. Six Degrees of Separation
20. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Wow, nicely done! Ha, I was actually kind of surprised
Shawshank hadn't been mentioned already. A friend got me to
read the Stephen King book it's from, so when the film came
out I made him go see it with me. *g* Excellent movie, the
story is really great, too.

Yeah, Usual Suspects, terrific movie, Kevin Spacey's just fantastic...
Too late again!

Every time I look at one of these movie memes, someone has already got the ones I know. Must do one myself.

Ah, drat; that's usually the case for me, too.

Must do one myself.

Oh yes, you should!

How are you feeling, btw? Any better?
I wish I had time to look through these now, but I really don't. That adds nothing of worth, but I feel better for having said it.
Just two for sure

3. Waiting for Guffman
16. Raise the Red Lantern
Ha, yes!

Guffman was one of my toss-ups in the sense that I like all the Christopher Guest / Michael McKean, etc. movies. I almost used Spinal Tap, but figured that was one of the too obvious choices. ;-)

Red Lantern, I did think you'd be the one to get that one. *g* I really wanted to find a pic of the final shot, her wandering about the courtyard, but not that that would have made it any more identifiable for folks, just a great scene. ;-)

I did identify Whale Rider from yours, and could probably have guessed some you might include...
Without reading the guesses so far:

1. Big Chill
2. Goodfellas
4. Dangerous Liaisons
16. Joy Luck Club (totally a guess because I've never seen it).

Now, how did you get Yahoo Photos to work? It would not upload anything when I tried last night. And now, if #2 is right, I'll have to find another movie before I get it up anyway.
Yes on 1, 2, and 4; 16 I knew would be a bit tricky (Dan got it). It's a film by Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou and it's
really good.

Hm, not sure why Yah photos wouldn't work for you; maybe
clearing cookies or rebooting would help? What was it doing?
1. Big Chill
2. Goodfellas
3. Waiting for Guffman
4. Dangerous Liaisons
5.
6.
7. Raising Arizona
8.
9. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
10. Shawshank Redemption
11. The Usual Suspects (scratch another from my list)
12.
13.
14. Six Degrees of Separation
15.
16. Raise the Red Lantern (which is not a guess and I have seen it)
17. L.A. Story
18.
19.
20. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Yes, that's right, and Neil has added in 5, 12, and 13, so:

1. Big Chill
2. Goodfellas
3. Waiting for Guffman
4. Dangerous Liaisons
5. The Color Purple
6.
7. Raising Arizona
8.
9. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
10. Shawshank Redemption
11. The Usual Suspects (scratch another from my list)
12. Young Frankenstein
13. Trick
14. Six Degrees of Separation
15.
16. Raise the Red Lantern (which is not a guess and I have seen it)
17. L.A. Story
18.
19.
20. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
These are tough, Kelley! I knew a few that other people have guessed: 4, 9, 10, 14 and 20

I don't think anyone has mentioned these three yet:

5. The Color Purple
12. Young Frankenstein
13. Trick

Ha, yes, right on all!

Heh, Young Frankenstein, I almost used a pic that included Teri Garr and Marty Feldman along with Wilder and Boyle, but I thought that made it too easy. ;-)

And yes, Trick -- if you see above one of my replies to Elizabeth (re DiCaprio), that's the one I thought she meant (it wasn't). I do love this movie; even Tori Spelling who makes me gag, did well; probably easy for her as the character's meant to be annoying. :-D

Only three that I can guess at:

1. Jurassic Park
12. Young Frankenstein
18. Three Men and a Baby

and no sense of certainty with those.

I'm trying to imagine Kelley - or anyone - loving or enjoying Three Men and a Baby.
Am obviously behind on reading LJ (story of my life these days), as the all the ones I know have been guessed. :D
