Hunt for Red October!

"Andrei, you've lost another submarine?"


Ferris Beuler's Day Off. :lol:


Two top contenders for my answer!

On a related note, the Top 250 at IMDB is interesting. http://www.imdb.com/chart/top There are also several genre-specific lists there.

The Empire Strikes Back

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

Hands down, the Original Crow probably. Gosh, i've seen so many movies, but it's one of the few I can watch over and over. It had some great one liners.

"Mother is the word for God upon the hearts and lips of all children."

"Move and your dead!" .. "I say I am dead and moving! (dancing around)"

"Tell them death is coming for them.. tell them Eric Draven sends his regards".

Bah, so sad he died, as I think that would have been Brandon Lee's breakout movie :(

The Outsiders or Memento.


Ohh, great choice of The Outsiders. That sucker was a who's who of future hollywood stars. Ralph Machio, Tom Cruise, Emileo Estevez, Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillan. :grin:

Also one of my faves. Looks great on blue-ray. But I'd have to go with "Sunset Boulevard." The Waxman score stands out.

Ben-Hur or LoTR/Hobbit - Adventure
Pulp Fiction - Comedy
The Fifth Element or The Forbidden Planet- Sci-Fi
Kill Bill 1 and 2 - Action

If I could only pick 1 I guess The Fifth Element is closer to my heart than Ben-Hur but it's really tough.

This is an impossible question. I have different favorites depending on different moods. Ask me for my favorite comedy or favorite action/adventure or favorite romance movie and you'll get three different answers.

But if I am forced to pick one, I'll go old school for its story telling, innovation and ability to suck you into the screen: King Kong (1933)

The original Conan the Barbarian was the best movie ever made while Conan the Destroyer was the worst.

Good choice. On the innovation front, i'd have to give alot of props to Wizard of Oz too. Still a classic to this day.

Yeah. I still prefer the original over the remake. I guess that could be a generational thing though. Hard for me to see anyone but Arnold as Conan. Red Sonya was good too.

The recent version wasn't bad but it didn't compare to the original.

I'll watch any James Bond 007 movie - in fact - the wife and me just watched the latest at the cinema yesterday - we thought it was well done, with some well done transitions for contuing with Daniel Craig.

I also like just about any of the Marvel movies, Animal House was a favorite of mine, any of the Star Trek movies (including the Chris Pine one), Star Wars Ep4 (although I'll watch any of them).

Hopefully you mean any Marvel movies post The Hulk reboot, as I believe it was the first done by Marvel Studios. That's one thing i'll give credit to Disney for. They saved Marvel, gave them their own studio and said 'her's our money, you do the movies'. No more bastardizing of thier characters. Since Marvel began doing their own movies they have been excellent and shown that you can stay TRUE to the comic and still make movies that casual fans enjoy. Thanks to Disney, they no longer have to answer to studios of Hollywood.

Something Warner Brother's will never learn with DC I fear. :nono2:

Does anyone happen to know when/if Marvel can get the movie rights back for Spiderman (Sony I believe?) and X-Men (Fox I believe?). I think they finally got Punisher back.
