What an interesting thread... I love so many movies, it's sad. I love X-men, X2, Batman and Robin, The Labyrinth, *cough*cough* The Digimon movie, *cough* The Wizard of Oz , Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (they need a shorter title for that movie!), Josie and the Pussycats, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron (I'm sure I'm getting weird looks... Roll Eyes ), Happy Gilmore (so funny...) and.. I'm sure there's more... (everyone's asleep... Sleeping )

This one is tough..hmmm.... i really enjoy classics... this one isn't exactly old... but it poses as one...

its about a guy in the 40ies... i invents a toy(the hoola hoop i think)... and starts out just wanting to make kids happy... but then gets lazy and only goes for money...

it was on comedy central... its some VERY uniqe name... and all the reporters talk seteriotypicly...(blasted american spelling)

anyone know the name?

My favorite movie was 2001: A Space Odyssey. It was what you didn't typically expect from Sci-Fi movies of the 1960's - intellegent, artsy, and abstract. I also liked American Beauty and the Matrix, as well as Bladerunner.

I agree. that movie was so cool. But i also like:

Coming to America

Dumb and Dumber

Austin Powers (all 3)

Finding Nemo

Beauty and the Beast

Rush Hour (both)

*I'll add more later*

One quirky movie that really spoke to me was The Straight Story.

"I couldn't help but notice the rather unusal mode of transport."--Priest (John Lordan)
"My eyes are bad. I can't drive. I don't like someone else driving. And I've got to get out to my brother's."--Alvin

At 73, Alvin Straight lost his driver's license. Then he heard that his brother, who he hadn't spoken to for years, had had a stroke. Straight outfitted his riding lawnmower with a trailer and set off at 5 mph from Iowa to Wisconsin.

It sounds funny, but this movie captured what I love most about motorcycle touring -- the freedom of the road, the ever-changing view, and the friendliness of strangers you meet along the way.

Well worth renting.

I liked "Pulp Fiction". Man, that movie had a great story.

"Moulin Rouge", also.

Hmm. I'll do it!

"African Queen" with Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn. One of those brilliant classics of action, romance, and some comedy, as well as character evolution and a strong storyline. Everything from the Queen herself to Bogart's lines are beautifully crafted. They don't make movies like this anymore, which sucks rocks.

"The Blues Brothers" with John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd. For both action and comedy, quotable quotes and great music, this movie is pure genius. The first of the SNL movies was done the best, making fun of Nazis, country singers, modern music, psychotic ex-fiancees, and car chase scenes (as well as the first to use the 'police car pile-up' technique). AND giving Cab Calloway a chance to shine once again like he did back in the 1930's.

"African Queen" with Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn. You got comedy, drama, sex, violence, war, adventure, gunfire, explosions, insanity, giant animals - everything except aliens. Big Grin

Some of my favorites:

"Dangerous Liaisons" [1988], "Great Expectations" [1998], "Cruel Intentions" [1999], "The Talented Mr. Ripley" [1999], "American Psycho" [2000], "Femme Fatale" [2002]

In writing this, I just know that I'm doing an injustice to some awesome movies that I can't recall at the moment.
That said, I doubt that I'll ever forget 1964's Fail-Safe.

This balck-and-white, Cold War thriller is a stunning example of simple, riveting story-telling without any gimmics or special effects.
Although I haven't seen it in the better part of 20 years, I doubt I'll ever forget that poignant scene at the end where the bomber pilot breathes those emotional words into his oxygen mask, trying to come to grips with the inevitable outcome of the unexpected and truly horrifying mission he was ordered to fly.

Makes me want to go rent it.
