Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is an all time favorite feel good movie in my opinion.

"come with me and you'll see a world of pure imagination"

Gene Wilder was the best!

If an open-minded individual who sees value in everyone finding love (same sex included) the movie Big Eden will leave you sobbing happily and the cinematography is stunning (set in Montana). It's rated PG-13 I believe for "some language and situations" so not what one might consider racy in any sense. The soundtrack is terrific (old school Country-Western) and the cast with some familiar faces (Louise Fletcher, Tim Dekay, Veanne Cox and Arye Gross). Although a fictional place I feel pretty confident you'll find it the type of place we all would wish to live in.

Never heard of that one. Looks like itís worth trying to track down. Thanks for the suggestion.

MadManofBethseda made a new thread asking for our favorite movie of each year after you were born, and in pursuing my "DVD library" (I have the titles on an Excel sheet), I did realize that there were quite a few good movies made from 2000-2010, but after that, with just a couple of exception, the "good" movies, in my opinion, were very scarce.

So, in short, I now realize that my basic premise was wrong, but it has been a fun thread nevertheless! So, once again, thanks!

In my opinion, judging from the trailers, MOST of them (post 2000 or so) seem to be violent and/or depressing and/or aimed at juvenile males. Also, it seems to me that old-fashioned romances (for example, "Pride and Prejudice") are becoming more and more of a rarity.

Yes, I am old-fashioned and proud of it! (Judging from your posts, I don't think that you agree that it is okay to be old-fashioned, but that's okay. Everyone is still allowed to have differing opinions and tastes.)
