If we are talking hem, I would have to throw in "Phantom of the Opera"! You got Drama, you got Horror, you got Romance even a little light comedy.

Sort of a one stop shopping kind of thing.

The General says definitely a must see.

Dave I tell you what, for some reason I also cry with sport movies.

"The natural" makes me cry every time, and I can't even watch "Field of Dreams" any more. The waterworks start with the music in the opening scene, I'm tearing right now just thinking about it. It just triggers all the "father/son" stuff in me.

I cry like a baby during the final scene of Field of Dreams when he's playing catch with his dad. That scene just kills me. Also, the drama I chose titled My Life when Michael Keaton finally is overcome by his cancer and starts to make ammends with his family before he dies, dude, I need a freakin' chamois!

I don't know why, but I don't have favorite directors. I just like the film, or I don't. I guess I don't really care who made it, or I think it's a group effort and won't give credit to one person. But as far as watching a movie based on the director I would have to choose, Spielberg, Ridley Scott, John Hughes and Nancy Meyers, only because of a good track record. What about the worst movie you ever saw? (the one you couldn't finish, or complained about) Natural Born Killers/ Woody Harrelson.
