    How dare you? Meg was a rom-com queen before she screwed up her face, You've Got Mail is my favorite fluffy movie EVAH! Have you no appreciation for modern American cinema?

    I heard on the radio a couple of days ago that Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp are now dating. I don't know why they strike me as a type of couple, but they do.

    'Hot Tub Time Machine.'

    What about '13 Going on 30?' Does that count as a time travel movie? That was a good one too.

    Rex, next you're going to say that you don't like my Sandy! Who, to stay relevant to the thread, also starred in a pseudo-time travel movie, along with Keanu Reeves and a mailbox.

    Spoiler

    My mind is completely blank on the name of the film, though.

    I didn't like The Butterfly Effect, I thought is was so hilariously bad that I actually got the giggle fits during the last scene (thankfully I was at home and not in a movie theatre!)

    Kate & Leopold was all right, but some of it was a little weird

    Spoiler



    I loved Donnie Darko, but get the Director's Cut instead of the cinematic version of the film. The Director's Cut makes it easier to follow the plot.

    was pretty obvious, and a little too easily fixed, but Sandy was delightful and charming as always, and there were definitely some cute moments. YMMV, but I thought that although it's a drama, it was fairly easy to watch and not too heavy.

    Another vote for Twelve Monkeys. Really interesting and Brad Pitt in a non-pulchritudinous role. I mean, the guy can't be anything but pulchritudinous (thanks HC, love that word), but he actually ACTS in this movie.

    Lost in Austen. Pretty silly but a few priceless moments, especially if you're fond of the 1995 BBC adaptation of Pride & Prejudice.

    My fave Meg Ryan films:

    Body Of Proof
    In The Cut
    In The Land Of Women
    City Of Angels

    I hear she's been in comedies as well as dramas.

    Still haven't seen "Courage Under Fire" or "The Doors" yet...
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Oh yes!! One of the trippiest movies I've ever seen and Brad Pitt was at his best - completely stepped out of his comfort zone. The end of the movie was just brilliant.

    I love all the movies Sandra Bullock has been in but this particular movie was mind-boggling. This movie was made for Sandra.

    Sandra was in The Lake House? Oh, that's who that dark haired woman was with my Keanu.

    Would The Strange Case of Benjamin Button count as a time machine movie?

    Oh, how can I forget this classic? Sleeper.

    And along the same lines, Austin Powers.

    I like these...

    - Solaris (Classic Russian Science fiction by famous film-maker Tarkovsky)
    - Window to Paris (a great comedy about Soviet family discovering a hole in the wall which leads to the streets of Paris.
    - Ivan Vasilievich is Changing Careers (Russian comedy with dancing and singing)
    - French Lieutenant’s Woman (classic novel)
    - Kin dzha dzha
    - Lost in Austen (currently on US-TV on PBS)
    - Dr. Who

    Oooh, I love Doctor Who. But since it's a TV show that's been on for 50 years (with a 15 year break starting in the 90s), the thought of "catching up" with it is daunting. I'd recommend starting with the 2005 "reboot" and seeing how that goes. It's a British TV show about an alien who travels through time and space. Netflix has all the seasons, or you could catch reruns on PBS, SyFy, or BBC America. The new season is supposed to debut this spring.
