  1. I don’t really have a favourite movie. It usually depends on my mood and if I want to watch one.
    Happy 47th Amber, hope your day is full of love, laughter, and all good things.

  2. Fifth Element! It’s pure cheese, but I challenge anyone to sit through it without laughing!


  3. It is difficult to choose just one movie… I have a favourite in each genre, for example my favourite romantic movie is Ladyhawke. As for intrigue, I would choose The Usual Suspects

  4. Hard question, as I’m a movie buff. I hope you enjoy that one. It’s on my list. Serenity is one of my favorites. I originally watched it without having seen Firefly and I think it’s equally enjoyable either way.

  5. There are quite a few I like, Im a disaster movie fan. But, I always seem to get the same film in my head when asked for a favourite, and that’s The Abyss. I just love Ed Harris in that film

  6. Happy Birthday Amber. My favourite move is Lion King. Maybe it is because I am staying in South Africa and the flavour of the move is Africa so I can relate to the story. However I still cry every time Simba’s dad dies.

  7. My favorite movie would have to be Pride and Prejudice. Happy Birthday! Hope you have an amazing day!

  8. My favourite film hasn’t always been pride and prejudice ever since I was 14 years old and saw it for the very first time lol.

  9. I have several favorite movies but my All Time Fav movie is Star Wars.

    Happy Birthday Amber!!!!!

    Make sure you let us know how the movie is. My wife has been dying to see it. LOL

  10. Even at 38 years of age if The Dark Crystal is playing I take my time to watch it. My second favorite is Labyrinth with David Bowie because who doesn’t love him, his 80s hair and leather pants lmao

  11. I really like a lot of movies, but I guess the live version of beauty and the beast. I really love Sifi movies though.

  12. I would have to say it is the Lord of the Rings series. I tried to watch it everytime it is on if I can sneak the remote from by husband.

  13. Have a lot of them but, Jaws would have to my biggest downfall. Have to watch it whenever its on. My 10 year old granddaughter just discovered it with me she loves it. Happy Birthday.

  14. That is a hard one. I have a lot of favourite tv series but movies are difficult depending on what I am in the mood for. It changes. I tend to like archaeology adventure movies, so things like Indiana Jones movies, National Treasure movies, 3 Librarian movies, The Da Vinci Code, The Mummy etc. Hmm, okay, The Mummy movies with Brendan Fraser would have to be my favourite.

  15. Happy Birthday! I don’t really have a favorite movie. It seems the older I fet the fewer I watch.

  16. Happy birthday. My favorite movie is SWAT because I love the men in this movie. LL, Colin and Samuel. Enjoy your day.

  17. Happy B-day! I enjoy black and white movies such as The Thin Man and 12 Angry Men. Have fun today. I saw Murder on the Orient Express last week. You should enjoy it.

  18. Happy Birthday hun!! Favorite movie has to be “Space Balls”. I have watched it so many times but still laugh.

  19. I don’t think I have a favorite movie. But one I can watch over and over is Hocus Pocus. Doesn’t even matter the time of year.

  20. I love watching Disney movies and I absolutely love the new Beauty and the Beast. I saw it 5 times in the theater and watch it every few weeks at home.

  21. I have a lot of movies that I love. If I had to pick one right now, I would go with The Fifth Element.

  22. Baywatch, it has become a comfort movie for me ‘cos its a guarantee I’ll laugh at at least one of the many nicknames Dwayne Johnson bestows on Effron throughout the movie

  23. My favourite movie is 300
    Hope you have a great day and may all your wishes come true πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

  24. Happy birthday! My favorite movie would have to be either A Knights Tale or The Dark Knight.

  25. Happy Birthday and may this day be filled with movies, lube , family and laughter. When it comes to moves my favorite is Drop Dead Gorgeous.

  26. I love too many movies to have a favorite. I will watch them over and over again. No preference for genre either. I love watching car chases, things getting blown up but I still love movies like the original Charlie and the Chocolate factory. It would be easier to say which movies I hate.

  27. Beetlejuice! Loves the special effects and total ridiculousness of it.. LOL! Happy birthday and hope you have a fabulous day!

  28. Happy Birthday Amber! My favorite is Disney’s Beauty and the Beast 1990! The music, the story not to mention the transformation of the Beast will forever be my favorite things.

  29. Happy Birthday. My favorite movie of all time is the Quiet Man with John Wayne. My grandmother got me hooked on that movie.

  30. It hard to pick a favorite movie but this time of year, it’s Home Alone…
    Happy Birthday Amber, hope you have a great one..πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚

  31. Happy birthday Amber, hope you enjoy it despite our NW weather… for my favorite movie, hard to pick…Ghostbusters (the original) or Breakfast club or Lord of the Rings or Fast and Furious or Star Wars or Harry Potter or StarTrek or Ironman or Captain America… I guess it’s Princess Mononoke πŸ™‚

  32. Happy Birthday! I’m thinking about the movie… I think it is the whole original Star Wars trilogy. I remember going to the third one in the movie theatre with my family and family friends. It was the first one I saw ‘live’ in theaters! This time of year, or rather Christmas time, it is an old Czech movie called Three nuts for Cinderella. My sister and I always watched it on German TV every Christmas (I am Dutch), and I even bought the DVD since we now live in the US!

  33. I think my favorite movie is How I Live Now. It’s the only book to movie adaption where I can say that I loved the movie more than the book.

  34. My two favorite movies are Romeo and Juliet (the 60’s version that my daycare asked my mom to stop me quoting when I was little) and The Matrix (which I just realized came out 18 years ago!).

  35. Happy birthday!! My favorite go to movies, that I can watch over and over are The Italian Job, all LOTR/Hobbit, and all HP. I can’t just choose one.

  36. Happy Birthday Amber my favourite movie is “Maurice” a wonderful period film of love and discovery.

  37. Happy Birthday! Almost any old movie will do – golden age of Hollywood – romantic comedy or suspense.

  38. Happy Birthday! Though I have many favorite movies, one that I always come back to because I think it’s a good interpretation of the book is A River Runs Through It (1992). Young Brad Pitt, Craig Sheffer, Tom Skerritt, and Brenda Blethyn are amazing in it. πŸ™‚

  39. Happy Birthday Amber!!!
    I actually have 2 favorites movies. Armageddon and Volcano love action disaster movies.
    Have a good time today.

  40. Wow. That’s a tough one. My favorite is Top Gun ( love Tom Cruise) but my favorite family movie is Its a Wonderful Life. Happy Birthday Amber

  41. Happy Birthday!
    I have lots of favorites but right now I’m loving Howl’s Moving Castle at the moment.

  42. Happy Birthday πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰. My favorite movies are Neverending Story, Princess Bride and The Heat.

  43. Happy birthday~ 😊

    Favorite movie could be The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. The animated one not the live action movies. Simply a beautiful movie.

  44. Happy Birthday!!!
    I can’t choose a single movie, but I have a list of rewatch feel good movies.
    hairspray, Priscilla queen of the dessert, O brother where art thou, princess bride to name a few πŸ™‚

  45. Happy birthday! Enjoy yourself and God bless. My favorite movie is Nausicca of the Valley of the Wind by Miyazaki. I enjoy all his anime but that one is the one that started it for me.

  46. My favorite movie right now is Constantine. Happy Birthday Amber. Thank you for the chance at getting a present on your birthday 🎁

  47. Happy birthday! I enjoy all kinds of movies. My favorites are the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Another favorite is the Man From U.N.C.L.E. with Henry Cavill and Army Hammer.

  48. Happy Birthday Amber! My birthday is on the 30th of this month and I will be 46, wow so hard to believe. One of my favorite movies that I watch to lift my spirits is The Big Lebowski, I always feel amazing after watching this movie.

  49. My favorite Christmas movie is Die Hard(yes!!it is a Christmas movie, big discussion yesterday). Absolutely favorite is The Pirate Movie (pretty cheesy but it’s great). Happy Birthday

  50. Happy Birthday. We hope to see Murder on the Orient Express sometime soon. My favorite movie is Xanadu. I loved that movie years ago and I still like to what it at least once a year.

  51. Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great day! & My favorite movie this year is bad mom’s. Every year I have one more favorite & then when I’m off I’ll watch most of them that day.

  52. Happy Birthday Amber! I saw murder on the Orient express and totally enjoyed it. I know a lot of people are complaining that it’s slow but it’s an Agatha Christie mystery movie. There’s not a whole lot of shot em up action in those types of movies.

    One of my all-time favorite movies is Ever After with Drew Barrymore. It’s a great pick me up movie when you just want sappy romance.

  53. I don’t go to the movie theater, so everything I watch is on TV. My favorite that I can watch over and over and never get tired of is The Vampire Diaries, True blood and The Walking Dead.
    Happy Birthday!!

  54. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is amazing and probably my favorite movie (s). My fav list is very diverse, though, with ‘Crash’, ‘Donnie Darko’, ‘Kate & Leopold’ and ‘Tucker & Dale versus Evil’ rounding out the top 5 πŸ™‚ Happy birthday and thanks for this opportunity ❀

  55. Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great day! & My favorite movie is a Korean Movie The Villainess

  56. Happy Birthday! I agree with a lot of others on here that choosing just one movie is hard. I grew up on Star Wars though and can always watch any of the original 3 movies in the series.

  57. Happy Birthday, Hope you had a great day.
    Really love that anything can be done with the newer movies, just love the what if. So started with Jurassic park, Lord of the Rings and not to forget Avatar.

  58. Quite a few favorites. A couple from when I was young are A Room With a View and The Breakfast Club. More recently, The Way He Looks.

  59. Happy Birthday! I have to go with Steel Magnolias. Stellar cast and the cemetery scene is to die for! lol

  60. hmm – they change. right now is Frozen. with how stupid actors are being a lot of my old favorites I can’t watch anymore.

  61. Happy birthday! I normally always say “Lorenzo’s Oil”, but lately (the last couple of years) I just can’t get enough of “The Blind Side”.

  62. My favorite movie is The Shawshank Redemption, with Forest Gump coming in as a close second.

  63. There are so many I love, but I recommend BEEFCAKE (the story of Athletic Model Guild photographer Bob Mizer) to any m/m fan!

  64. Happy Birthday Amber!!
    I have too many favorite movies to choose one but I will go with a classic and first one to pop into my head, Lady and the Tramp

  65. Hope you are having a wonderful Birthday, I have been giving it some thought and I think it is the Original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for me

  66. Happy Birthday πŸ™‚ As a huge movies fan the decision to pick only one is extremely difficult. But there is one movie that I can watch over and over again – Titanic. Especially in the winter I fire a fireplace , prepare cocoa and a packet of tissues to once again experience this romantic story.

  67. Happy Birthday Amber. I am bit of a film buff, so very tricky question to answer and it all depends on how I feel to what film is a favorite. Tonight my favorite was The Illusionist, but tomorrow it might be Die Hard, who knows πŸ™‚

  68. Happy 18th anniversary of your 29th birthday!!! :p I love the classics and my favorite is probably a toss up between the 1954 version of Sabrina with Audrey Hepburn (okay, anything with Audrey) and Humphrey Bogart… le’sigh. Or 1938’s Bringing Up Baby with Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn because “I can’t give you anything but love, baby. That’s the only thing I’ve plenty of, baby. Dream awhile, scheme awhile, we’re sure to find, happiness and I guess
    all those things you’ve always pined for.” Everyone should have a pet leopard.
