next time, too

I have watched Braveheart more than any other movie, ever.
Hundreds of viewings, at least.
I still cry. Every time.

These are the movies I adore and have seen a ridiculous amount of times.

Braveheart
Practical Magic
The Lion King
Fluke
Garden State

I'd say that pretty much sums me up.

I totally agree. I could watch it any day and it would still seem new and wonderful and there are only a handful of movies that I would put in the same category as I would Braveheart.

Oh and I suggest you watch Phenomenon with John Travolta.

We were asked what our favorite movie was during an ice breaker discussion at one of our recent ladies Bible study. We got the usual responses one would expect from a bunch of women: Gone with the Wind, Time Travelers Wife, The Notebook…
They all stared at me when I said "Braveheart". I tried to explain it but stopped after a couple of minutes. It’s just a gut thing.

Some movies never get old!

I'm a smutty showtime series kind of gal...

The tudors
Californication
United states of Tara
Weeds
...and the dreaded desperate housewives
Or what about bob, shaun of the dead

Hours of mindless fun for serious decompressing.

This world is such full of sadness I just can't do tearjerkers for entertainment.

I'll have to look in to this one though.

Nothing to do with Braveheart-I'm one of the few who has never seen it-but I thought you would like this photo of "snow dogs". I can put in the tag but go look at www.icanhascheezburger.com for one of those husky teams in very deep snow.

Braveheart, yes. Makes me cry every single time, and I never get tired of it.

I was at a university function as a new faculty member, and the president of the university went round the room asking everyone their favourite movie. There were all sorts of high-brow films named, most of which I'd never heard of (I'm not much of a movie buff), so when he got round to me, I said, with complete honesty, that my favourite movie is "The Princess Bride." They all stared, so I added, slightly defiantly, that I like silly movies that are well done. I've only seen Braveheart once, but I still cherish the moment where the two armies run to each other -- and stop.

Yep gotta love those movies that you know by heart. Mine is Beauty and the Beast. I'm 30 and I finally saw it in the movies I cried at the opening credits and all the classic parts. There were some things I've never seen before. There's just something about a normal person saving the day! When I see the musical I cry too.

Good movie! My favorite is "Auntie Mame." Love that Rosiland Russell!

That final scene nails me every time, Robert the Bruce coming to his senses once again. I'm a mess. And able to look past what a douche Mel Gibson is in real life, because it's such a well-made flick.

Ok, have to admit I've not seen all of Braveheart. I've seen the obvious waggle scene, so maybe I need to watch the rest. I love History.

My repeat list is:
Shawshank Redemption
The Rose
Point Break
Don Juan De Marco
Practical Magic (thanks for the reminder)

For me the end scene of Braveheart is all in Stephen's eyes, they make me cry every time.

Braveheart’s better than great... this one is in my collection. My list…The Cowboys & True Grit-new and old, Lonesome Dove, Cold Mountain (that one makes me tear up no matter what, can’t help it), Places in the Heart, Gran Torino…
