one of my favourite films is Anger management with Jack Nicholson, so funny! I like Jack Nicholson films generally though not all.

    totally agree, Robert de Niro is very versatile, I like Midnight Run too, funny crime caper.

    Not such a funny film but quite gripping is Lucy, scarlet Johansson

    Another of my favourites is needful things starring Max Von Sydow, quite dark.

    Older person, older likes and dislikes....

    Films
    Pretty much any John Wayne is worth watching.
    The Matrix films were exceptional.
    The second Alien film "Aliens" was more a war file than scary, brilliant!
    The original "Rollerball" starring James Caan.
    Steve Mcqeen in "Bullit" and "The great escape".
    Kurt Russell in "Stargate", "Soldier" and "Big trouble in little china"
    All of the Star Wars films, even those recent ones where I had to mentally replace new characters with old ones (book fan). Will discuss separately if anyone wants to, lol!

    TV series
    Ben Browder in "Farscape".
    Richard Dean Anderson in "Stargate SG1".
    Mark Harmon in "NCIS".
    James Spader in "The blacklist".

    A simple plan with Bill Paxton, Bridget Fonda and billy Bob Thornton was a great little film.
    speaking of Billy Bob Thornton reminds me of Bad Santa! Very funny.

    Home alone was a good film and I watch it again every Christmas along with the die hard films and where eagles dare.
    another of my favourites is The Edge with Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin.

    Yes its a great film over christmas  :) and bruce willis good too, ive not seen the edge? will look for that, is it a thriller? weve got a few off ebay, when it says 'used' weve bought them and never had a bad one  :) have you watched prison break and dexter, my pal lent me dexter, its so gory but compelling
  • leeCal
    leeCal Member Posts: 5,346 Disability Gamechanger
    To be honest I can’t watch gory films, I get anxiety etc. No, I haven’t seen prison break. 
    The Edge is a unique film, it is a thriller but more than that and Anthony Hopkins very good as you expect., I’d recommend it.
