    :lol:

    Where's your list???
    ------
    Alot of great films mentioned so far- Should change it to 10 films per genere! lol

    You know what film I watched over the weekend that I forgot how much I loved and should have added to my list? "Hope Floats".
    ...That has to be the only film that I can think of that has made me cry on and off thru-out watching it. So touching and moving, and even though I'm not a huge Sandra Bullock fan, hats off to her for playing her roll so well.
