This is a great thread. I would have to say one of my top three favorite movies would be in order:

Dear Frankie
Braveheart
RobRoy

Then, I love the Quiet Man with John Wayne....
There are so many movies listed on this thread that I've actually made a list to add to my Blockbuster queue...thanks!!!

So glad I found this place!

I just watched Dancing at Lughnasa with Meryl Streep. Wonderful movie. Loved it.
Takes place in Ireland, Donegal to be exact in the 1930's. Check it out. Watched it as a download from Netflix.

OK, help me out here. The fam and I watched a movie on TV a few months back and I can't remember the title. It's driving me nuts.

Briefly, the story line was this. BTW, the story is set in Ireland. A man sees a woman on a beach and sneaks up on her and takes her "skin." Turns out she is one of the seal people. Another man finds out about it and sets out to get her skin back so she can return to the sea, but falls in love with her, and so forth, and so on.

Anyone got the title to this one? It was really pretty good.

No, not that one. The male lead is pretty well known, but since I can't pull out his name, that's not helping, is it? tongue.gif

There's one called "Selkie," about a teenaged boy who is one and doesn't want to be (shot in Austrailia) -- and "The Seventh Stream," about a man who steals a selkie-woman's skin, which I think is the one you saw..

For those who people like me who like their movies with a bit of tartan I saw a preiview for a movie called "Who's Your Caddy'' on MSN today. Think Caddyshack but with Rap stars. And you guessed it-one of them wears a kilt in a scene. The rest of the movie looked pretty good too. Can't wait to show it to my Golf Pro brother. Especially the golf cart with NOS system and rims.

Brand new loch ness monster raised by small boy movie. It's called the Water Horse and it looks to be a big improvment over the Magic in the Water movie they keep retitling and selling.

Here are some of my personal favourites. All great movies. I'm probably showing my age a bit...

Local Hero (all time favourite)

Restless Natives (now out on DVD!!)

Dear Frankie (what a wonderful movie this is)

Comfort and Joy

The Girl in the Cafe (yes, I know it was filmed in London and Iceland, but Kelly McDonald is outstanding in this one)

I Know Where I'm Going (the ceilidh scene is still great after almost 60 years!)

The Maggie

Tunes of Glory

My Name is Joe (stunning performances - great cinematography)

Very Annie Mary (location filming is unforgettable - so is the opening scene)

Tight Little Island (Whisky Galore!) (one of the best movies ever from Ealing Studios)

The Wicker Man (for the location filming - and only the original; the remake sucks!)
