<p>I forgot Dr Zhivago, that was one of my mom's favorites- but I think I was like 10 when I saw it.
<p>Cher- who is a fabulous actor- was wonderful in Mermaids ( with Bob Hoskins- such a hottie), and Moonstruck.</p>
<p>I also wouldn't consider The English Patient a romantic book- but I didn't read it until I saw the movie & liked the book better. ( but the hair washing scene came across better in the movie) <B- </p>
<p>Youve' got Mail, is a remake of The Shop around the Corner- neither of which I have seen, but I like James Stewart much more than I like Tom Hanks ( unfortunately after I saw Forest Gump- Hanks onscreen makes me grind my teeth).</p>
<p>I also haven't seen Before Sunrise- although it has been mentioned quite a bit because I normally don't care for Ethan Hawke either- but I should try it.</p>
<p>CtyYankee- I did see Big Night, in the theater and agree-
Besides Moonstruck food also is a character in
Tam Po Po
Like Water for Chocolate
The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover ( with Helen Mirren, Michael Gambon)</p>
<p>I swoon for fantastic cinematography- which is why I like the English Patient so much despite the clunky bits in the story- but my absolute favorite movie is
Days</a> of Heaven.
Malick admired cinematographer Nestor Almendros' work on The Wild Child and wanted him to shoot Days of Heaven. He was impressed by Malick's knowledge of photography and willingness to use little studio lighting. The two men modeled the film's cinematography after silent films, which often used natural light. They also drew inspiration from painters such as Johannes Vermeer, Edward Hopper (particularly his House by the Railroad), and Andrew Wyeth, as well as photo-reporters from the turn of the century.
Gere and Shepard are kinda attractive too.
