  • Your Recommended NON War Movie

    Possibly done before, but here's one i would recommend...

    Withnail and I

    http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?...+I&vt=lf&hl=en

    ... and in the link most (if not all) of the movie can be viewed.

    The opening is i think the best i've seen. The script is brilliant, as is the acting from all the players. The whole film is a feast of humour. Large parts of it are based on real life events as are the characters.

    I heartily recommend you watch it.

    Regards

          Forrest Gump qualifies as a war movie, however.

          My favorite non-war films: Practical Magic, followed by While You Were Sleeping and You've Got Mail.

            All ingredients that makes a movie great come together here. Drama, love, intrigue, humour, the both sad and joyous ending, great script and stellar cast with Gregory Peck and a young Audrey Hepburn as elegance and charm incarnate

            You may not be interested in War, but War is interested in You - Leon Trotski, June 1919.

                IF you put ANTI in front of WAR then I would agree.

                  These are also war movies.

                    The films I mentioned are not anti-war, so that would serve no purpose. The theme of the thread is non-war films, period.

                      Peck made some great films, but my favorites of Audrey Hepburn are Breakfast At Tiffanys and My Fair Lady. She was a very classy lady.

                          Agreed. Grace Kelly is so elegant and this is very well done with fantastic wardrobe, color and lighting. Hitchcock is known for the lighting.

                          Add to that one:

                          Philadelphia story (Oh C.K. Dexter Haven!!)
                          Summertime
                          Local Hero
                          One, Two, Three (Ok, cold war, but still a fantastic comedy) "They are not anti American. They are anti Yankee, and where I come from everyone is anti Yankee!

                            you may think it silly........but "Wizard of Oz" has to be a classic for all ages with an excellent story about values.Also for its time the special effects were great.Produced the icon of a witch that will never be equaled.
