Love everyone's lists.
As to "Love Actually", I have no idea why its a favorite of mine but it is. So? I watched it alot and now change the language to "French" so that I can try to learn a bit of French...

I would like to add to "Two for the Road" another VERY different, but also travelling film: "The Man Who Would Be King" and, for a sea voyage ('cause there are multi-episodes) "The Flame Trees of Thika". Then, of course, we shouldn't leave out "Around the World in Eighty Days".

If they could get the full 6 episode BBC version of "Pride and Prejudice," I'd watch it over and over - and only have to watch it twice!

"Oh my, how could I have forgotten about Blazing Saddles."

For Penance, may I suggest you read from the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and Duck!

Fun thread...

If I had to view only ONE movie it would be a tie between LOTR: The Two Towers and A&Es 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice.

Depending on where I'm going, I'd enjoy viewing any of the following:

LOTR Trilogy
Pride & Prejudice - both versions, I'm starting to appreciate the newer one as much as A&Es version. Wow!
Inn of the 6th Happiness - loved this one since I was a little girl
Sabrina - both versions
To Catch a Thief - Cary and Grace - oh!
for LOL - 4 Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill & Bridget Jones Diary
Witness
Thomas Crown Affair - Steamy!
7 Years in Tibet
Apollo 13
Braveheart
Chocolat
Awakenings
Memoirs of a Geisha - surprisingly loved this one

Okay, too many movies, not enough time...

Quite right, I'm thinking of A&E, not BBC, for Pride and Prejudice - it's the one with Colin Firth.

Our favorite line to repeat around the house: "You are quite dull this evening, Miss Elizabeth Bennett."

For some reason this question makes me think of watching a "Thin Man" marathon. However, "The Third Man" also sounds perfect ... wish the airline was showing that on a November flight to Vienna that I once took. Anything but a "Anchorman"/"Bewitched" double feature, which is what I got on the way to Rome in October.

Now if only the airline would serve martinis with that marathon! Good choice,

For an airplane, I think I would pick something dull and boring so I could get some sleep. A lecture by my macro-economics prof comes to mind.

If "Pride and Prejudice" were being shown we ladies could promenade up and down the aisle arm in arm.
