For comedy, its a tossup between "Blazing Saddles" and "National Lampoons Animal House".

While most likely not the best movie ever made, I have always enjoyed "The Abyss". It's one that I will stop and watch if I see that it's currently on. Seems like I have several like that.

DIRECTV since April 2000.

It really is hard to pick just one. If I was told that I could only see one more movie before I died, I'd pick one that I'd never seen before.....

Anyway, one that I'll always watch when it comes on, or pick if it's among a choice of many, is "Failsafe". Great drama, fantastic acting, and a damn good story........

Whoever said that it was hard for many folks to stick to one is a genius. Must be running 10:1.
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

or 1941 (Ned Beatty with the ack-ack gun in his living room)


Ishtar


Isn't that widely panned as one of the worst films of all time worldwide?

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:
