    These are a few of my faves:

    1. After Hours (1985) -- "Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) embarks on a trip to New York City's SoHo district in hopes of hooking up with a recent acquaintance, the beautiful Marcy Franklin (Rosanna Arquette). But Paul loses all his money, and just to get back home he must endure a night of kooks, psychotics, punks and an angry mob trying to kill him. The supporting cast includes Linda Fiorentino, Teri Garr, John Heard and Catherine O'Hara, with Martin Scorsese directing."

    2. Danny Deckchair (2003) - "Loopy Australian truck driver Danny (Rhys Ifans) hatches a novel way to escape his drab life after a fight with his girlfriend: He ties large helium-filled balloons to his deckchair and floats away into the sky. But a violent thunderstorm sends him hurtling out over the Outback, where he lands (as in the Wizard of Oz) in a small town where no one knows him. Meanwhile, the news media is in a frenzy about Danny's fantastic disappearance. "

    3. Under the Lighthouse Dancing (1997) -- "Six old friends -- Harry (Jack Thompson), Emma (Jacqueline McKenzie), Juliet (Zoe Bertram), Louise (Naomi Watts), David (Aden Gillett) and Garth (Philip Holder) -- spirit away to an island for a short holiday, not knowing that Harry and Emma are about to elope. As they all scramble to make the event memorable, they also learn that Emma's gravely ill, and this romantic adventure may just be her last hurrah."

    4. Beautiful Girls (1996) - "When Timothy Hutton returns to the small town he left behind, erstwhile friends, lovers and the scary thought of settling down swirl around him. A friend's unapproachable cousin (Uma Thurman) and the winsome teenager next door (Natalie Portman) afford differing glimpses of two possible futures. Director Ted Demme's smartly written, slice-of-life film offers a funny look into the male mind."

    5. Flesh + Blood (1985) - "All's fair in love and war in this swoony-but-gritty drama from filmmaker Paul Verhoeven. A band of mercenaries led by Martin (Rutger Hauer) abducts Agnes (Jennifer Jason Leigh), the daughter of the feudal lord who cheats them out of their money. In spite of the other mercenaries' complaints, Martin grows to love Agnes, who's waiting to be saved by her beloved. Co-stars Tom Burlinson and Jack Thompson."

    6. Bubba Ho-Tep (2003) - "Elvis Presley (Bruce Campbell) is an elderly resident in an East Texas rest home; seems he switched identities with an impersonator years before his "death" and then missed his chance to switch back. The King teams up with Jack (Ossie Davis), a fellow nursing home resident who thinks he's John F. Kennedy, and the two old codgers prepare to battle an evil Egyptian entity that's chosen their long-term care facility as its happy hunting grounds."

    7. Chocolat (2000) - "An iconoclastic single mother (Oscar-nominee Juliette Binoche) and her young daughter move to a village in France and open a chocolate shop -- that's open Sundays -- across the street from a church. At first, Binoche's rich, sensuous desserts scandalize the town, but soon the villagers welcome the newcomers with open arms. Judi Dench, Lena Olin and Johnny Depp co-star in this 2000 Best Picture nominee."

    8. The Count Of Monte Cristo (2002) - "A beautifully photographed rekindling of the classic Alexandre Dumas story. Edmond Dantès's (Jim Caviezel) life and plans to marry the beautiful Mercedes (Dagmara Dominczyk) are shattered when his best friend, Fernand (Guy Pearce), deceives him. After spending 13 miserable years in prison, Dantès escapes with the help of a fellow inmate (Richard Harris), cleverly insinuates himself into the French nobility and plots his revenge."

    9. Defending Your Life (1991) - "After Daniel Miller (Albert Brooks) crashes his BMW convertible into a bus, he's transported to "Judgment City," where he meets the love of his life, Julia (Meryl Streep). Unfortunately, Daniel needs to defend his life on Earth before he can ascend to heaven with Julia. He frantically attempts to explain the positive things he's accomplished, but soon realizes that Julia may be too good for him."

    10. Devil In a Blue Dress (1995) - "In this compelling neonoir set in 1948 Los Angeles, war veteran "Easy" Rawlins (Denzel Washington) is looking for work. When a stranger asks him to locate a missing woman, it sounds like a surefire way to snag some quick cash. But Rawlins gets more than he bargained for and soon becomes entangled in a murder mystery."
