Every time I feel down, I rent Monty Python and the Holey Grail. It always does the trick for me. A must see, over, and over again.

Monty Phython and the Holy Grail! I love that movie.... "I'm not dead yet!"

Has anyone seen "A Shot at Glory"? A movie about Scottish football. It's a little hokey in places but for some reason I really liked it. The soundtrack is amazing though, by Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits).

A couple of other absolute favorites:

Rob Roy (OK so not historically accurate, but come on! Liam Neeson in a kilt!)
Local Hero (just a sweet, quirky movie and more great music from Mark Knopfler)

I love Local Hero too - remember the guy on the scooter who keeps flying thru the little village & nearly running over everyone?! Oh, a bit of trivia: I think the guy who plays the innkeeper is Ewan MacGregor's uncle, he's the one who inspired Ewan to become an actor (or so I read in an article years ago)

I read that too. I also read somewhere that Local Hero inspired the TV series "Northern Exposure", which I also loved.

I caught a movie unexpectedly called "A Shot at Glory" with Robert Duvall about an American owner of a Scottish football team. I really liked it - and the guy's legs were pretty easy on the eyes.

Yeah, as I mentioned above, I really liked that movie. It's a pretty good story and the acting is OK, although I think Robert Duvall does an really good Scottish accent. Ally McCoist (sp?) is a real Scottish football player and he plays (what do you know?!) a Scottish football player. He should stick to the pitch, 'cause he's no actor (but who cares? he's gorgeous!). Michael Keaton plays the American owner of the team. It gives a very good 'slice of life' picture of Scottish football and how passionate the Scots are about 'the beautiful game." I'd recommend it.

Local Hero...one of my favorites.

Braveheart is the best !

So I Married An Axe Murderer. Hands down the funniest of the Scottish movies. "We have a piper down, I repeat, a piper is down."

I saw a rather dark and tragic little Irish movie this past weekend while I was taking care of mom. It's called The Field. It stars Richard Harris and Sean Bean

Plot summary from IMDB.com http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099566/

"Bull" McCabe's family has farmed a field for generations, sacrificing endlessly for the sake of the land. And when the widow who owns the field decides to sell the field in a public auction, McCabe knows that he must own it. But while no one in the village would dare bid against him, an American with deep pockets decides that he needs the field to build a highway. The Bull and his son decide to convince the American to give up bidding on the field, but things go horribly wrong.

MacFive> you might be able to catch it. I think it was on one of the Starz channels.

Hee hee! I completely agree. I love that movie, and never get tired of watching it.

Thanks for all the great links everyone. One of my favorite older films is "I Know Where I'm Going". It's an adorable Scottish romance from 1945. The black and white cinematography is beautiful, and the story is so sweet and funny in the way the best classics are. Best of all the heroine is smart and independent...that always wins points from me. I saw it years ago at a film festival but I think it's out on DVD now.

Wow! Eleven pages and not one Highlander film mentioned. LOL Here are some more that I have seen that I didn't see listed. Most are easy to get.
St. Patrick-the Irish Legend-A fun watch with effects that resemble episode of Hercules or Xena. Has its Catholic vibe but it worth owning. Soundtrack (if you can find it) includes Clannad, Solas, Anuna, and Marie Brennan.
Patrick- Brave Shepherd of the Emerald Isle- Cartoon version of Patrick story-good for the young ones. put out by CCC of America. This one also has a strong catholic tone to it and is part of a series of Catholic cartoon videos for kids on the different saints.
Irish Jam Brand new with Eddie Griffin (Undercover Brother) as a con artist from LA brought to Ireland because a local town devised a poetry contest in hopes of collecting enough fees to avert forelclosure of the entire town. The music is great although I saw alot of complaints on another web site about the use of English actors playing Irish townfolk.
I'm always searching for more-No one mention Circle of Friends with Chris O'Donnell (after 3 Musketeers and before he bacame Robin)and I haven't seen it yet. Anybody know where Princess Bride was filmed?

And speaking of Riverdance I highly recommmend the Best of RD. The commentary is worth the price. Also new music DVD's are out by Gaelic Storm, Dropkick Murphy's, Ceili Rain, and Blackmore's Night (more Gypsy music but they are still great). I highly recommend the DVD put out by Trinity Dance Company. If you like Riverdance you will love this.
