Joan Hickson was the best, in my humble opinion, Miss Marple ever! I have all her Agatha Christie work on DVD and she is a favorite holiday watch!
A Very Long Engagement (Un long dimanche de fiançailles) is simply beautiful. It is VERY long, but the color and beautiful Audrey Tautou are so worth it! Set in the trenches during the Battle of the Somme, this film has everything and a love story that made me a bit sniffly.
My friend and I bawled so much during the The English Patient we both had soggy cleavage. I detest sad movies as a rule, but this one is a must see.
Indiana Jones remains as one of my favorite movie series of all time. Swashbuckling, suave and romantic he is truly one of my favorite heroes.
Chinatown is an oldie, but a goodie! Jack at his best in this story of adultery, murder and more twists than you can shake a stick at!
Heat of the Sun was a random British series I watched in the late 90's. Set in Africa Trevor Eve is a detective far from home who gets mixed up with the fair Emma Fitzgerald played by Susannah Harker. Great drama and an incredible location.
Gosford Park is also amazing and not just because Clive Owen is in it. The cast is stellar and I have such a jones for Helen Mirren!!
Easy Virtue is great, light and fluffy viewing. And, although I did shudder at times at Jessica Biel's lack of talent, Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas make it all better though. As for Ben Barnes... omnomnom.
Band of Brothers is one of the only war movies, well series, that I've watched more than once. It is absolutely brilliant and poignantly good watching. It has stayed with me and I remember when I saw actual footage of Major Winters I got just a little misty. Compulsive viewing.
Thanks for having me on the DIK Blog, it's been a blast!
