    I feel sure this has been done before, but let's hear 'em.

    Mine are, in no particular order, The Big Lebowski, The Princess Bride, Harold and Maude, The Thing, and Alien.

    So- bring on the movies!

    Short Circuit
    TMNT series
    Ghostbusters series
    Neverending Story

    I like a lot of movies, but these are some I'd watch on a regular basis.
    The remainder is an unjustifiable, egotistical power struggle
    At the expense of the American dream, American dream
    Of the American

    We don`t give a damn about your world
    With all your global profits
    And all your jeweled pearls
    We don`t give a damn about your world
    Right now, right now!

    I love the Swedish versions of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. My favorite is The Girl who Played with Fire.
    I love Pride and Prejudice the 2005 version with Keira Knightly. Though I think Keira Knightly and Adela should share lunch. I love the movie Battle Los Angeles although I think it is mostly a marine recruiting film. My all time favorite movie is The Big Country with Gregory Peck and Jean Simmons. Awesome movie!
    I am looking forward to next weeks release of Total Recall. I say the first one in the theater and I play on seeing the new one in a theater.

    My favorites all are pretty old too. Also in no particular order:

    The Wild Bunch - Pecikinpah was a genius.
    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.

    What a fun question. Thanks for posing it.

    Here goes, in no particular order:

    1. Casablanca
    2. My Cousin Vinny
    3. To Kill a Mockingbird
    4. Doctor Zhivago
    5. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

    Just so I won't edit this tomorrow and have 5 entirely different movies, honorable mention goes to Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Witness for the Prosecution, Major League, The Caine Mutiny, and Cool Hand Luke.
    Live your life and love your life. It's the only one you get.
