    Hey, I specifically included (about 5 messages before yours) Raiders of the Lost Ark; it's one of my favorite all-time shows.

    I only saw it mentioned once (Big Tuna) but I have to re-mention Black Hawk Down. Totally awesome. Arguably the best war film ever made, and I appreciate almost all of them.

    Thanks to all for the lists. I have seen many, but I plan to use this as a reference for future movie rentals/purchases!

    I noticed alot of people mentioning "Deer Hunter". Anybody else from the east coast get annoyed that most of the hunting scenes from the Deer Hunter were shot @ North Cascades National Park? There are no mountains like that in Pennsylvania....almost (stress almost) ruined the movie for me.....

    Christian Bale will never be more manly than Christopher Walken or Gary Busey :ray1:

    Christoper Walken, definitely not. That reminds me of 'King of New York'....great walken flick.
    Gary Busey is more crazy that tough. Doesn't seem to have the ability to be calculating. Likeable, but a B rate actor. THe peak of his career was the first Lethal Weapon.
    Bale isn't there yet. But he does have the ability to look mean and violent, something most have lost in the last couple of decades. Hopefully he'll get anotheer role like American Psycho where he puts the smack down.

    Tragically folks didn't follow my lead and include quotes:( But has there been a better one than Duke saying "Fill your hands you Sonsabitches!!!!" I think not... Maybe the chick talking smack about the chicken and dumplings, comes close, but it's too long to truly be a classic line :p Plus Glenn Campbell dies! 10 is too short a list:mad:

  17. Paul Huffman

    Paul Huffman Lagging economic indicator

    Now I'll have to get Key Largo on my Netflix queue.

    I forgot the other interesting thing about "Empire of Sun" that recommends it. There is a great performance of a child actor as the main character, a British kid trying to survive in a Japanese prisoner camp in mainland China. That child actor: Christian Bale. He never sounds British anymore.
  18. David Prutsman

    Thank god someone finally mentioned the greatest sports movie ever! Good call Seelie Mike!

    Pool Hall Junkies is a great movie that never went mainstream, similar to Rounders but for pool instead. Some amazing shots in that flick.
