    Appologies to all. I seem to have killed this thread with my, perhaps naive, admission.

      Fellini's Casanova, starring Donald Sutherland in the title role.

      It had some good things about it, but it was in many ways unpleasant, too. I don't think it's successful. I still think of it fondly for reasons I don't understand. Fellini made better movies than this one.

        I would have to say the LOtR movies...
        They deviate from the books (which I like) to some extent... but I still like them.
        There are parts of the movies that irritate me asthetically as well as things that they left out whisc anoy me, but all in all I really liked the movies.
        Grey Mouser, you are not alone in your enjoyment of Return of the King. :D

          "Fairy Tale: A True Story"

          This well evokes the time around WW1 when anything seemed possible, with spiritualists and theosophists running around doing their stuff and Conan Doyle putting his reputation on the line to defend a kiddies' prank. Of course, in the film it's more than that, so the second part of the title needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. I'm not quite sure if I like the way the plot concludes, but the fairies are pretty cool. One of those poignant, bitter-sweet stories about what children leave behind when they grow up.

          Only guilty as it's a kid's film and a bit girly.
