Oopps, forgot about Briggadon with Gene Kelly. Ok its a musical and it looks like it was all done on stage but the plot would make a great movie. Surprised no one has othered doing it.

The Committments ...quirky, rather dark humored, but very good... band.gif

The Mysts of Avalon...refreshing feminine perspective on the myths...

The Quiet Man...nostalgic and has Maureen O'Hara...so it gets brownie points

The Sword in the Stone king.gif ...my second favorite Disney flick...eternally a favorite of mine since youth...

Peter Pan...my favorite Disney movie...gotta love those Pan and the pirates

Robin Hood...with Errol Flynn... Royal02.gif ...best looking actor award

Ryan's Daughter...an oldie but goodie...

Gangs of New York...so violent, took me 3 sittings to watch...but I finished it thumbs_up.gif ....suspect it was quite historically on target...but was hard to watch...

Green Grows My Valley...a Welsh movie about coal mining...sad...

Circle of Friends...excellent...but the book is better

The Harry Potter movies... did you know that the birds of prey, like Harry's owl...are from the Avary on the grounds of Belvadere Castle located in the midlands of Ireland? Very haunting place...also home of the Jealous Wall...

The Molly Maguires...based on a true story of Irish immigrants in the mid 1870's, set and filmed in the anthracite coal region of northeastern Pennsylvania....entertaining but does not tell the tale with historical accuracy...Sean Connory, Richard Harris star...a must see if you are Irish American and do not know the story...then read "Making Sense of the Molly Maguires" by Kevin Kenny...did you know the Mollies were the pioneers of the labor movement in America?

TLOTR... velho.gif is there any doubt that Tolkien's Shire is based on Ireland and the Hobbits on the Irish?...then of course, there is Aragorn...sigh...wub.gif

Angela's Ashes...have not seen the move...but the book is a must read...as is the follow up "'Tis"...Frank McCourt has a way with a story...

The Fighting Prince of Donegal...another Disney...oldie but goodie...

I forgot about it the other day but I really liked Evelyn starring Pierce Brosnan. It was a sweet movie that told a great story.

I found that one the other day at the library and I really enjoyed it.

I didn't really understand why the government was so adament about keeping his kids. Maybe someone who has seen the movie can explain that to me. It wasn't made very clear in the movie. All I can think of was that the schools were given funding based on the number of children in them.

Saw the first couple of episodes of "Roar" This is apparently a tv show (now on DVD) with each episode running about an hour. I picked the first DVD up at our local video store. There are four DVDs and each one has about six episodes. Heath Ledger (Knights Tale) is the main star. It is the story of the last Celtic tribes holding out against the oncoming Romans. Actually its new tribal leader Health vs evil Roman /Celtic princess and her demonic/suicidal 400 year old boyfriend. But I've only seen the first DVD. Although not very historically accurate it is still very entertaining. Its at about the level of the old Hercules/Zena shows but abit more serious and with better special effects. A good watch if you can find it.

Today I watched, "The Mighty Celt." Loved it! It was filmed in northern Ireland and the accents are a wee bit difficult to understand, but the story is really neat. There is one very sad part in the film where I wanted to reach through the screen and strangle one character, but all in all it is a great film with beautiful scenery, good actors and a wee peek into Irish culture of today.

Good message there about the movies that are Irish themed I myself like to call them Irish movies. Instead of Celtic , Celtic is such a wide broadband of movies that would include the celtic isles that are Eire(Ireland) england,scotland and wales.
There is nothing wrong with Scotland there are some good people there and some fantastic Celtic F.C. supporters. I wished that cable TV here in the states would show more Irish themed movies about the troubles in Eire I am not talking about the famine that has been shown over the years alot. Although it was a horrible thing I am not putting it down . I mean by the troubles in Eire I am talking about the North of Eire. All of the oppression that the Nationalist people have put up over hundreds of years from the Loyalists that have raped there land.

Thomasina was one of my favorite movies as a kid. I still have the book.
Has anyone mentioned "First Knight" - with Sean Connery as King ARthur, Julia Ormond as Guinivere, Richard Gere as Lancelot and Ben Cross as Malagant. One of my all time favorites.

I actually got the TV and livingroom to myself last Sunday and treated myself to Braveheart as an afternoon movie. My wife and daughters get a little tired of my delight with our Scottish heritage so it's a little discouraging get their criticism when I want to watch one of these movies.
Quite a pleasant afternoon! (althought the movie stirs the emotions somewhat)

Has anyone watched "The Wind That Shakes The Barley?" It is a very enlightening film about the Troubles in Ireland. The scenery is wonderful . Mairtin de Cogain , who plays in The Fuchia Band, is in the cast. I loved the film! I recommend it.

Yes. It's a very important film, I think, and everyone who is interested in celtic culture or Irish history should see it. I wrote a review for this site, which you may find if you look around.
