    Glad to see Jerimiah Johnson mentioned along with Lonesome Dove, gotta love the westerns. Can't believe no one mentioned Will Penny or Tom Horn.

    Just remembered an obvious choice; can't believe that nobody has mentioned it yet (?): that Sam Peckinpaugh blood-soaked, bullet-riddled, manly code-spouting classic about aging outlaws vs. Mexican war lord: the Wild Bunch.

    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.....
