  1. Looks like I get to be the official first comment!

    Well, I haven’t seen most of these recently… I remember really liking “A Place in the Sun” and “The Apartment,” though.

    How did you decide which you highly recommended and which you just recommended?

  2. Good question….

    What I believe is that when you are watching a movie and you get this feeling, (I can’t describe it very well) but it is this feeling of complete euphoria, like you will:
    1)never experience this again
    2)it’s making you completely happy (or scared, in a good way, depending on the genre) and
    3)you’re just enjoying the time you spend watching this movie
    Then that is the difference for me.

  3. totally with you on that one Stephie.

    If you want some more James Dean sexiness (although Rebel Without a Cause) is by far his best)watch “Giant” and “East of Eden”.
