I saw it with a local celebrity sitting in front of me. The squarest guy you ever saw. He hated it, never laughed, and left early while the rest of us were rolling in the aisles.

I was happy about that.

7. I can get on board with that

Back when Star Wars first came out, I saw it 6 times - in the theater! I saw it with different people each time and the last time, was with my mother, aunt and cousin, only two others in the theater, the film broke. But because I'd already seen it several times, I could tell them exact what they'd missed. I had never done that before - or since - agree that it's one terrific movie...

8. I am with you...I saw Star Wars 7 times total..in the theaters...in the first few years....

If I remember, I saw it before it became a tremendous hit..sometime in the first 7-10 days after it opened. I took a girlfriend and her two children. One of the kids was a teenager when I met him again. If I recall, he remembered that Star Wars experience. (hadn't seen him in about 10 years...) That young lad is now 46 years old, that is also something ...

10. I saw it in the theater 6 times during the first run

They don't do that anymore since they want to fill the theaters, probably not too excited showing it for 6 people the last time I went. When the film broke, I uncharacteristically got up and found the manager, but he said he couldn't do anything. I wanted my family to have the whole experience, LOL. And I agree that this is a film that stays with you. Can't remember who all I saw it with, but I certainly remember what I saw on the screen...

I remember that feeling you describe of joy and true entertainment. It changed what movies meant to me. What they could be. I remember my dad making a point of telling me that it happened a long time ago in galaxy far, far away. Somehow, that made it different from regular old future type sci-fi pictures.

Animation is a hobby ..I've collected hundreds of short cartoons, and a many full length films. This is my fav of all time.

I must add, the end is something very special (no..I will not give it away) but it took me four times to "get it".. First three times, I didn't have a "clue". Totally wonderful..

24. "Where is my friend's home?" - an art house film

 

directed by Abbas Kiarostami - very sweet, touching little film that was his first film. I think that it was intended to be propaganda in service of imparting Ayatollah's revolutionary values to children in Iran, but instead of being anything of the sort, it just comes off (to ME) as being a universally appealing message of the value of friendship, loyalty, and sacrifice.

I've watched this film many times over the years, and each time I'm left blubbering.

I'd also could describe the same for The Right Stuff, although I saw that on video and not in the theater.

The story, acting, setting and soundtrack make it my all time favorite.
Dr. Zhivago an epic film and great story.
Henry V w/ Branagh again. Again, an epic rather bloody film which I saw as an anti-war statement. The soundtrack is awesome.

It was the first time he had ever picked up a video camera.

He filmed the first four scenes and used them as trailers to get funding for the rest of the movie.

81. I've never seen Blazing Saddles with Ben Kingsley...

Which part does he play?

I bet it's Gabby Johnson:

"I wash born here, an I wash raished here, and dad gum it, I am gonna die here, an no sidewindin' bushwackin', hornswagglin' cracker croaker is gonna rouin me bishen cutter. "

79. Amelie

Gosh it's hard to pick though..

"Donnie Darko" "Jurassic Park" and "Love me if you Dare" , all wonderful.

The first time I saw DD was on DVD at home. As soon as it was over, I immediately watched it again.


Honorable Mention: Logan's Run
Would say it was my fav film for years and years

Have to mention.... "Titanic"

It was out for months, definitely over a year before I saw it at the theater...couldn't imagine it living up to the hype at that point.

Best guy friend and I left the theater crying like babies...couldn't even start up the car for about 10 minutes.....we also laughed a little at the same time in that "omg I can't believe I'm crying like this" kind of way.

And omg, "Brokeback Mountain". Only movie that ever felt like heartbreak, I was seriously depressed the rest of the day after a matinee show

And..."mulholland Drive", "Meet Joe Black" and "A.I."...... Cause I can't leave them out...

And guilty pleasure: the ice skating movie "The Cutting Edge", because I will watch it every time I see it on the TV.

I know you said one, but I could not choose......thanks for reading!

80. Goodfellas was my Star Wars...

Saw it 3 times in the theatre and bought it when it came out on VHS then eventually upgraded to DVD

Haven't watched it in years

Think it might be time to check it out again

The best movie ever made

84. I wonder at what age people had these "most wonderful" experiences

I guess for me it would also be Star Wars, in 1977 - I was 13. I'd guess most of these movie memories are also youthful memories...

85. The Seven Samurai

By Akira Kurosawa.

George Lucas lifted the plot for the original Star Wars from another Kurosawa samurai film.

86. At 6 years old my son came out of that movie and announced

to everyone who was waiting in line to buy tickets for the next showing that it was THE BEST! movie he ever saw!

It made him a movie buff.
