...there is so much talk in here about the government…so I wanted to start a new thread. I loved the book thread and thought that a movie thread may lighten things up for a while.

So, what is your all time favorite movie? What movies do you watch over and over again?

The Band of Brother series is BY FAR (IMHO) the greatest thing ever to be put to film.

After that, the movie Snatch is my all time fave.

Then, Caddy Shack, Animal House, Smokey and the Bandit....., hmmm.

What about you?

My favorite movie is a tie between “The Perfect Game” and “Meet Joe Black.”

Movies that I will watch over and over again:

Conair, Driven, Fast and Furious, Mr. & Mrs. Smith – oh so many!!!!

Any disaster movie – Twister, Armageddon, etc.

Anything with Al Pacino – ANYTHING!!!

Failure to Launch....I could keep going!!!!

"5 minutes, Turkish"

"? it was two minutes, 5 minutes ago."despite the great plot, cinematography, and action sequences it was really the simple dialogue that made that movie.

"ja like dags?"

"oh DOGS. yeah, i like dogs"

...

"whaddo i vant a caravan that aint got no veels for?"

imo its brad pitt's best acting job ever. and the soundrack kicks ass too. the song while "coursing" is one of my alltime favorite movie songs.

A few that I still like to see are
CaddyShack - Bill Murray is classic

Saturday Night Fever - Saw this in the theatre when it came out, I still like the Bee Gees, probably more people do than they will admit

Sling Blade
National Lampoons vacation, and Christmas vacation

and although I saw it again about a year ago, and it was kinda corny, I remember thinking it was great when it came out. Close Encounters of the third kind

Snatch is a classic movie!

Periwinkle Blue, its for me ma!

Not a Brad Pitt fan, but he was great in that movie.

Band of Brothers gets the nod as the movie/series that I could watch over and over again.

Cannot go wrong with Monty Python and the Holy Grail! Absolute classic movie. "Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate?" Classic. Still trying to get my girlfriend to watch it, not too successful so far.

Airplane is awesome also. The jive scene is hillarious!

Definitely agree that Band of Brothers was the best thing ever run for TV. Apocalypse Now is up there. Citizen Kane. In Cold Blood. Lawrence of Arabia. Taxi Driver. Godfather 1 and 2. Raging Bull. Bladerunner. Pulp Fiction. Shindler's List. Goodfella's.

I watch a lot of movies:tt03:

Do you think there's a difference among "best", "favorite", and the ones you'd like to see over and over?

There are a lot of great movies that once was enough for me; Silence of the Lambs. Great movie. Once was enough. Airplane; one of my favorites, but I'm not thinking about cuing it up any time soon.

Fargo, Pulp Fiction, Tombstone, Godfather (1 & 2)... those, and some others, I could watch any time.

Tombstone is the one I've seen most often in the last 10 years. The movie I've seen most often in my life has to be something that was on perennial repeat on HBO back in the late '70s or early '80s, something like War Games (which was pretty good, actually).

Definately a difference. But movies age too - for better or for worse.
You must watch Silence Of The Lambs again. The last time I watched it, I was blown away at how it isn't just a good movie anymore, it's a classic. Jody Foster was so much better than I remember her being.
Tombstone is awesome. I forgot to put that one on my list. Definately re-watchable.
I rewatch Master And Commander, Pirates Of the Carribean, Gladiator, Groundhog Day, The Right Stuff, The Bourne Series, GI Jane, Any Bond Film, and The Edge all the time. They are all excellent in their own way.
Speaking of obscure 80's movies, I still love Cloak and Dagger, Remo Williams and of course War Games.

While I was in the mountains of WVA for a few days earlier this week, there was a Dirty Harry marathon on, I believe, AMC. I can never get enough of Clint Eastwood in his Dirty Harry role. :thumbsup:

I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

Ah, the memories of my mom realizing what we were all watching and then covering me and my bro's eyes with one hand as she drove out of there faster than she should have over the giant concrete bumps........:laughing:

I think the idea with those double features was the kids would fall asleep by the end of the children's movie and then the adults could watch one of those raunchy 80's flicks. What were they thinking?

Love all types of movies from horror to comedies and action suspense.

Here are just some of my favs that I can watch anytime. Some have already been mentioned but I added some comments.... let me know your thoughts

Silenece of the lambs - (great acting)
Haloween (original - scary)
Pulp Fiction (best dilaogue ever)
Jaws (great great movie that kept me nervous in the water as a kid and was the original summer blockbuster)
Shawshank redemption (everything you want in a movie)
Raiders of the lost Ark (original - great action movie and scenes...)
Spiderman 1 and 2 ( big spiderman fan as kid . 1 & 2 werre good...# 3 sucked IMO )
Revenge of the nerds (great 80's comedy)
Bachelor party ( another great 80's comedy with Tom Hanks really funny before serious roles)
Weird Science ( 80's comedy theme here)
Something about Mary and Kingpin ( Farley brothers at their best - funny stuff )
Godfather 2 (liked this one the best for some reason)
Murder in the First (very underrated movie IMHO with Christian Slater and Kevin Bacon)
Boogie nights ( hey I watched the occasional movie my dad had hidden away as well and this fit the time it captured)
Saturday Night Fever (captured the disco time well)

10-20-2008, 04:28 PM

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE TELLING ME?

That is one of the FUNNIEST movies of all time. I saw that at the theatre when it first came out!

+2

I'm quickly becoming a big fan of the "New" Batman movies as well. Christian B. is fantastic as both Batman and Bruce Wayne. I may have said this already...but it's worth repeating.

its been a few years but this was just on and i had to watch- "crouching tiger, hidden dragon"

this movies got it all. 2 beautiful leading ladies. chow yun fat is awesome, noble, and intense. excellent musical score, great choreography and action.

the ultimate tragedy. funny, romantic, serious, and absurd. i dont know if i could leave this classic out of my top ten of all time.

I told my husband - "your Mommy" that we need to see the new movie because it is claimed to be a great motion picture.

Shall I say - thanks from "Papa Smurf?":popcorn::chuckle:

Gladiator is my FMOAT

We Were Soldiers

Patch Adams

Shawshank Redemption

Jacob the Liar

Awakenings (hard to find for some reason, but a great flick)

I thought Kung Pow! was a riot, but I think I am the only one

ANY old Kung Fu type movies

Transporter

I know there are tons more, but I really can't think of them at the moment.

As far as shows, I love LOST! Just started Season 4, so don't ruin it for me.

Yeah, I'm getting ready to take 2+ hours of vacation time in about 20 minutes so that I can view this "training meeting!"

I hope Mommy and Papa Smurf enjoy it as much as I know I do!
