Classic movie buff

I was tagged by Ev back in Oct. 17, and finally, I found the time to do it. So here goes the whatchamacallit.

What classic movie am I into?

I wouldn't consider this a classic movie as it was released to the public in 1996 and that would make it fairly new. I would consider classic as an old one of 50 years or more. I wouldn't want to go back that far. I like a movie that is fairly new, althought the English Patient's setting was in the 1940's, it was made 11 years ago.

This movie was of romance, which is why I like it very much; drama and intrigue. It had won the 1997 American Academy Awards for best picture; best actress in a supporting role; best director and 7 other categories.

Who to tag? Anybody who stumbles on this and wants to do it.

There you go Ev. I am done with my duty.

if it's a chick flick movie, i'm there :-) my favorites are jerry maguire, pretty woman, sleepless in seattle , etc. jerry maguire, if i'm not mistaken was directed, produced and written by Crowe, can't remember the first name. he wrote these quotes such as " i love you, you complete me, you had me at hello and i could go on and on. luv this rebound movie so i watched it 3 times

good subject, mari.

I am really a patient person...until I get tired or lazy and I'll just drop everything and leave. Forget that (whatever it was).

Thanks for the tag.

Hay, I love that movie too! Gwapo ni Ralph Fiennes (tama ba spelling ko)! Kaya nga love ko si Voldemort sa Harry Potter kasi sya gumanap hehe

And the story... wow! One of my fave movies din talaga :)
