THE QUESTION The year is half over; what are your favorite movies so far and why?
WHAT YOU SAY
Favorite movies: Capote for its almost unparalleled acting. And Akeelah and the Bee is exceptional for its broad area of interest. Children can identify with it for its healthy competitive nature, and adults appreciate it for its helpful message: The contestants are honest and possess fine character traits. And it was like an old-fashioned sing-a-long; I couldn't avoid spelling along with them; although I missed most of them.

I loved the Pink Panther. Steve Martin was perfect as the inspector. Was the movie silly? Yes! Was it slapstick? Of course! Was it corny? Sure! But it was still funny and relaxing, a pleasant change from so much of today's sex and violence.
