I'm not a big movie person, but I loved Life is Beautiful.

I've never seen the movie Arsenic and Old Lace, but I've seen it on the stage.

Roman Holiday, one of my ALL TIME favorites.

My friend Carrie and I watched the birds once in high school. I'm insanely afraid of birds, so it wasn't the brightest thing we'd ever done. We still talk about how much that movie scared us.

I've seen hardly any of the modern movies you mentioned.
