    Will you be my valentine
    Think about it a bit
    If you will, that's ok
    If not, who gives a shit

      How about the opening to Roxanne? The voices are not like the real movie, but w/e.

        Glad to see the Big Lebowski making an appearance on this thread. I think that movie is in a class of it's own. I don't even include it in my top 5. I usually end up pissing off the people watching with me because I can say all the lines. If I had to pick 5 besides that one they'd be (in no particular order).

        Cabin in the Woods- Not scary at all but highly recommended
        12 Angry Men- this needs no explanation
        Braveheart- epic in every way
        The Fox and the Hound- this was formerly the only movie to make me cry, until I saw...

                @ Nowhereman -- if you like Twelve Angry Men, get a hold of "12" -- it's a Russian re-make of Twelve Angry Men (in Russian, with subtitles) and it's riveting. After the first two minutes I didn't even register that I was reading the words instead of understanding Russian.

                  The Thing - Carpenter's, best ending ever.
                  Casino - Slightly more than Goodfellows.
                  Blade Runner - Prometheus made me cry for Ridley.
                  Chinatown - Noir, Polanski and I love LA.

                  Edited to add Sharon Stone kicking Arnolds ass is going to be tough to top but I'm also looking forward to the remake.
                  I really like your movie choices. Chinatown is brilliant.
                  Have you seen Death and the Maiden? Another amazing and thought provoking Polanski film.

                        I agree, the remake of 'The Thomas Crown Affair' was more watchable. I liked the original, but the remake really added something. 'The Usual Suspects' is a good call! I like Gabriel Byrne.

                              Wow, I reckon we have very similar tastes! The Pledge and Session 9 in particular I think are very underrated -

                              My own top five would be:

                              Die Hard
                              The Silence of the Lambs
                              This is Spinal Tap
                              Amelie
                              The Dark Knight

                              Honorable mention: Dogville, Garden State, Sin City, The Usual Suspects, Oldboy, Wayne's World, The King of Kong, Van Wilder, Werkmeister Harmoniak, Withnail & I, The Princess Bride, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Battle Royale, Sean of the Dead, Glengarry Glen Ross, Little Miss Sunshine, Irreversible (try getting that one out of your head!)
                              'I would happily buy a book called “The Ruffled Pink Panties System of Frilly Little Bodyweight Endeavors For Gentlemen of Quality” if the information in it would make me strong' - Josh Hanagarne

                                I love Bowfinger, and I quote History of the World Part 1 a lot, but no one knows what I am talking about.
