All Time Favorite Movies
It's probably been done before, but it's Memorial Day night, there isn't squat on TV, and the wife is being moody.
So, what are some of your all time favorite movies?
I'll start off with a few of mine, in no particular order.
1. "The Quiet Man", John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara
2. "The Shootist", John Wayne, Ron Howard, Jimmy Stewart, Lauren Bacall
3. "Jeremiah Johnson", Robert Redford
3. "Little Big Man", Dustin Hoffman
4. "Far and Away", Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman
And because I don't want you to think I'm elitist:
5. "The Toxic Avenger", no idea of the actors names. Terrible script, horrible cinematography, acting, and special effects, but lots of gratuitous T&A and gore. Gotta love that.

Maybe if everyone who'd ever been close to you had died, you'd be sarcastic, too.

Brazil (Director's cut)
The true way is along a rope that is not spanned high in the air, but only just above the ground. It seems intended more to cause stumbling than to be walked along.

I can't believe that my favorite movie hasn't appeared in this thread yet!
What, no love for Goodfellas!?!
Guilty feet do have rhythm, they just dance to the wrong theme music to amuse the villian
Instead of killin', I spare the raccoon n' start fillin' sand bags as I stare at the moon...Thoughts flood

Oh yeah - now we're talking. Gladiator didn't get anywhere near enough kudos when it came out. Oceans 12 was a bit crap (well, a lot, given how good 11 was)
Of course, a session with The Dude is always a good session.
I got to the bottom of this thread thining "please no one say it..." and thank GOD no one has said Cloverfield. (Worst. Film. Ever)
My guilty pleasure - it was straight to TV, and utterly utterly crap in every possible way...The Langoliers
