I'm going tomorrow to see Transamerica again.  I think it is in more theaters now that the oscars are close. I really enjoyed Hedwig too except for the ending.  ::)

of all time???   Geez, thats a big order . . .

I'll tell you what . . .  I'll tell you what, I'll name my top 5 movies based on the number of times I have seen them . . .

1) 2001 A Space Odyssey (over 100 times)
2) Contact (over 50? times)
3) Blue Velvet (20+)
4) The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (20+)
5) The Dish (20+)

While Transamerica is a good movie, Breakfast In Pluto is better IMO . . . but neither of them is in the class listed above!

 8)

Alexandra, it does my heart good to see you post The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert & The Dish. Both Australian movies and both enjoyable :)
I dunno movies I seem to "enjoy" (if thats the right word, maybe touch my soul would be better) are ones that are tragic ones.
The Notebook - really sad
Breaker Morant (that one should be compulsory viewing for all soldiers)
Gallipoli - was enjoyable till the end then ,even thou its a bit overacted, breakes your heart
Sugarbaby - nothing like some German films to tug at your soul.
The Bridge - another German movie and would you know after watching it a few days later my son got his field gear from cadets and there he was, my very own boy soldier :(
Seems I tend to like sad movies & war movies - what does that say of me :(

Lol, I assume you mean the part about where Hedwig is walking through the ally, yeah I didn't like that part much either. However I did like that the other Transsexual in the band got to be who she truly was at the end. It made me cry  :'( :'(.

           The part I didn't like was the fact that Hedwig decided "he" was not transsexual but a gay male in the end.

I've always liked "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead". It's a weird take on Hamlet, where it's told from the point of view of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Also has some offbeat jokes about Newton's Laws. Every time I see it I get something new out of it.

Hmmm really? I guess I didn't see that way *shrugs*. I saw it more as Hedwig passing the torch to the other Transsexual in the band. I never really thought about what Hedwig was going to do. I guess I'll have to watch it again.

Surprisingly there has been a number of great films made or set in Australia that I enjoyed, Older ones:

Year of Living Dangerously
Walkabout
On the Beach


and recently . . .

Newsfront
Danny Deckchair
(indeed, this "borderline" movie might have gotten the thumbs down from me if it wasn't for the Australian setting)

Stephanie,
You jogged my memory :)   Yes "The Man Who Would be King",  I really enjoyed it, reminds me how truely great a writer and poet Rudyard Kipling was.  I can remember from the movie, when faced with a truely dangerous situation,  the saying  "Brass It Out" - stuck in my mind as a philosophy to apply when things look bad :)

Monty Python thou - that sort of humour & acting rubs me the wrong way - yet there are truely very funny situations.  English humour at its very best & worst I suspect :)

remembering with pleasure

Oh yes I just remembered another really great movie that I'm surprised one of our Aussie friends hasn't mentioned.

On The Beach with Gregory Peck. That was a great movie and another one with submarines from the foriegn films section. Das Boot
