Jaws, hands down!
Field of Dreams is my favorite. Being a baseball mom for years and years, I can relate to this movie.
The Bourne Identity. It reinvented the entire spy genre and breathed new life into it..
Field of Dreams
ET, brings me back to my childhood!
The story line of Field of Dreams drew me in and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. I thought it was well written and directed and the acting was excellent. To paraphrase the well-known line from the movie....If I enter it, they will come!
Back to the Future is my favorite of these movies.
The Breakfast Club is probably my favorite.
Very hard to pick just one. I really enjoyed Mamma Mia.
Jurassic Park is my fav
I liked Dispicable Me
I just love 'Pillow Talk'... it always seems to bring me a smile. It's a great film on a flu day or even when you think the world has just got to crazy. It takes you have to a simpler time, where romance isn't dead.
They're all really good but I will always love The Breakfast Club.
The Birds, one of my favorite Alfred Hitchcock movies!
Back to the Future...it's heavy...
A few movies have moved me like Schindler's List did. It's deeply emotional and done with so much humanity and spirit. It is an amazing work of art from one of the best filmmakers alive today.
My favorite childhood is Back to the future. Michael Fox is a brilliant actor. Of all the Btf. The 3rd is the best! My teenage favorite is Jurrasic Park. It was my era's jaws!
I love To Kill a Mockingbird. Such a great story
back to the future
Jurassic Park was a blast when I first saw it at the show. Dinasaurs do exist! The whole movie had me excited. I won't forget the 1st time.
The Breakfast Club! Such a classic. This reminds me of high school, I went through a phase of Molly Ringwald discovery. I think my sister and I watched every movie she had ever starred in that summer... haha
ET... All time favorite movie...
To Kill a Mockingbird....never forget watching it with my mother, and thinking how much she reminded me of Atticus.
