  1. LA VIDA ES BELLA .

    It’s a thrilling and unforgettable movie which tells all the things a parent can do for their son not to see him suffer.It’s really surprising, a different view about one of the most hideous events in our history.It’s an unbelievable mixture of comedy and tragedy, with moments to laugh and others to cry, and a tribute to life and to hope.

    • LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL is a “beautiful” film; I like it a lot and never get tired of watching it. There’s always something new about it that I hadn’t noticed the last time.

    • One of my favourite movie, even in terrible times the main actor is able to keep smiling and make his child happy.

      • I do not think a child -even his age- would be so trustful in real life, but the idea of being optimist, even in the most desperate times, is a very positive one.

  2. The Princess Bride is easily one of my all time favorite movies because it’s a classic fairy tale of love combined with humor and adventure sequences. It’s a romantic action film and also has some comedy. The central idea of The Princess Bride is that true love can conquer all.
    I also love the soundtrack of the movie; it´s very relaxing, it makes me feel great and allows me to dream.

    The Princess Bride is a 1987 American film directed by Rob Reiner. Starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Chris Sarandon, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn, Christopher Guest, Andre the Giant. It´s based on the book of 1973, written by William Goldman. Music by Mark Knopfler.
    This movie tells us a pretty story about a sick boy who receives a visit from his kindly grandfather who intends to read to him his favorite book. At first, the boy doesn´t like the idea because he prefers to be distracted with his video games than with a classic fairy tale but he quickly changes his mind when he is transported to an imaginary place with sword fights, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, and some kissing.

    • I can’t remember that film but your comments have made want to see it again. The soundtrack by Mark Knoffler is great.

  3. All people remember the sentence “Sometimes I see dead people”, a horror film starred by Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment, as psychologist and patient. This horror film keeps you attentive till the end. Also, this end is unexpected and very surprising.“The sixth sense” is my favorite film.

    • I agree with you, Jessica. This psychological thriller is really disturbing and scary, and the unexpected ending makes you wonder about everything you have seen before. The first time I saw it at the cinema I just wanted to watch it again to ‘check’ that everything made sense. I had the impression that I had missed too many details!

  4. If I had to choose my favourite film, I would choose “Saw”.

    Saw is a horror, gore and psychological thriller film. It was filmed in 2004 and was directed by James Wan. This film keeps us in alert all time and It has an unexpected and amazing end.

    • To be honest, Francisco, I have never seen it. I can’t stand gore horror films; I spend most of the time covering my face to avoid the bloody scenes! However, I have heard a lot of people talk good about this horror movie.

  5. It’s difficult to choose my favourite movie because I like cinema very much and I have seen hundreds of movies in the last 20 years. However, If I had to choose with one film of the last 5 years surely I would stay with “The Dark Night”, probably the best superhero movie that has been filmed until now. The soundtrack composed by Hans Zimmer is unbeatable.

    • Superheroes are often ‘super’. I can’t recall this one, and I probably haven’t seen it all because I didn’t much like the Batman sequel. However, I usually enjoy watching a good action film, so I’ll try this one, Alejandro.

  6. It´s difficult to choose my favourite film because I have seen a lot of films and all of them make me feel something different. But in my opinion one of the best films that I have seen is the Da Vinci code, because it has made me think a lot about religion and the true of the history.

    • Have you read the book? I enjoyed the film but I liked the film better: a thrilling and compelling(absorbing) reading.

  7. One of my favourite films is “Splendor in the Grass” a classic movie from the early sixties starring by Nathalie Wood and Warren Beatty.
    I like this film because it makes me think about the hipocrisy of society rules and how difficult relationships can become. I would like to share
    the end of the film when Nathalie Wood recites this beautiful poem:

    Though nothing can bring back the hour
    of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower
    we will grieve not, rather find
    strength in what reminds behind…

    • I’ve never liked poetry much; I can’t understand much. These verses are both beautiful and clear, though. I’ve seen this film a couple of times, but I should see it again.

  8. One of my favourite movies is “Finding Neverland”. It’s a beautiful but sad film based on the life of J. M. Barrie and his relationship with a family who inspired him to create Peter Pan. I cry everytime I see it.
    The movie teaches us that we should never leave the child who lives inside us, and it remember us the power that the imagination have to make our lifes a little more magical.
    It looks like a movie for children but it really isn’t.

    • I can’t believe I haven’t seen this one! After seeing its trailer, it seems to me it’s the kind of movie that keeps me glued to my seat all the time.

  9. If I had to choose one film that would be “Remember The Titans”. The film is based on the true story of African American coach who tries to integrate a racially divided team at the T. C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia during the early 1970s.
    This film tries to show us that the most important thing in a team is working together. The colour of your skin doesn’t matter when you are playing football. At the beginning, they hate each other because it is a typical behaviour in that place. Finally, they realize that people shouldn’t be racist.

    • This a great story. I think they learn to respect and value each other for what they really are, not for their skin colour. Working well in a team, sharing your goals in life has this effect on people.
