    1. I guess you might be refering to the German silent movie in regards of Dracula, which is great? Though the one with Bela Lugosi is pretty good as well. :-) And yeah, Agatha Cristie movies for the win. :-)

  5. Oh wow, I saw Chocolat in the theater when it came out. I don't think I knew it was a book first. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest absolutely broke my heart, but what a great movie. I've seen the others, and prefer the original Dracula (vampires shouldn't sparkle, I'm sorry). Great list!
