Time for a list

Okay, this is a repost from years ago in response to a link at Michele's old site, but I was curious as to how people would respond today.

"Chick flicks" movies that I, a guy, love:

Children of a Lesser God(shut up)
When Harry Met Sally
Sleepless In Seattle
An Officer and A Gentleman
Steel Magnolias
Four Weddings and a Funeral
The Princess Bride
(I'm not convinced that this is actually a chick flick since I've read the book, but stay with me here)
The Truth About Cats and Dogs

"Guy" movies that I, a guy, do not like:

Rocky V
Rush Hour
Fight Club

Movies that I, as a hardened, cynical, unfeeling, soulless person tend to break down in tears while watching:

The Green Mile
Schindler's List
Dead Poets Society
Terms of Endearment
Forrest Gump
Brian's Song(original version, not the abortive remake)
It's a Wonderful Life
One Flew Over a Cuckoo's Nest

Anyone else willing to share their lists?

"Anyone else willing to share their lists?"

No, I suspect you're all alone, old chap.

Ken, some things never change.

This is not a complete list, just the few I could think of off the top of my head:

Chick flicks I love:
Two Weeks' Notice

"Guy" movies I don't like:
Anything by Quentin Tarantino
Apocalypse Now

Movies that tear me up:
Forrest Gump
The Green Mile
Saving Private Ryan
Band of Brothers (yes, it's a series...but it's my list :-) )
Star Trek II (who can get through that ending without tearing up?)

That's all I can think of at the moment. Not a bad idea for a post!
