Purchased it when it came out on DVD. Money well spent. I can't wait until they do "The Pacific War" which is also done by Speilberg and Hanks for HBO. Should be coming out some time this year. If it's anything like Band of Brothers, it will be excellent.

Road to Perdition was AMAZING. Tom Hanks was brilliant. And Paul Newman says more more with his eyes than other actor since Burt Lancaster in Field of Dreams. Outstanding.

3 to be 4, you ever see the two part series on HBO with Paul Newman called "Empire Falls"? Ed Harris (very underrated in my opinion), Philip Seymour Hoffman and Paul Newman do one hell of a job. Good stuff.

The Excorcist........I don't know if it gets better each time I watch it but it still scares the crap out me. Scariest movie ever made.

I know this is about movies, but real quick question. Did anyone watch the series Over There that was on FX last year? That was a kick ass show and I haven't heard whether or not if it's coming back.

Well...youre entitled to your opinion....

I thought it hit home about how some of these 17-18 yr old kids are heaped with an incredible amount of pressure and expectations...many are forced to grow up while under the microscope....

I grew up in a Western PA town in the mid 70's where the community lived and breathed on how the High School team performed on Friday nights...I lived this...so yeah..it hit home with me...

To quote the movie:

"We're 17!!...we should be having fun!!"

"Do you feel like you're 17??"


good stuff

yah i guess, my grandfather and my uncle are hs coachs, but always in big suburbs in the WPIAL, and I myself played in a large suburb in the WPIAL, so it didn't really hit home to me, and I just didn't enjoy watching the movie, the plot was good, i didn't like the visual aspects of it, the game-play was horrible IMO

I agree. Not trying to brag here or anything but i was a stand out in highschool. I was actually one of the most heavily recruited players the state ever had. We were privileged and everybody knew it. We got to skip class all the time. But at the same time we were consistantly under the lime light and the pressure was beyond imaginable for a 16-17 year old

Man, I loved Silence of the Lambs, but once was enough. How about the 1986 TV movie based on the same subject, Manhunter? That sight of the burning body in the wheelchair, wow. (Red Dragon is a remake of Manhunter.)

Saving Private Ryan was fabulous. One of my top 5 films of all time.
in fact, heres an offshoot to the thread:
Tom Hanks 5 best roles

Punch Line (played a total psycho "Singing in the Rain")
Saving Private Ryan
Road to Perdition
Forrest Gump
Apollo 13

* Philadelphia is ruined for me by that over the top opera scene. puh-leeeze.

Two of my favorite John Wayne movies that I watch quite a bit is

True Grit and The Shootist.

Other movies:

Tombstone
Full Metal Jacket
The Bridge on the River Kwai
To Hell and Back
Saving Private Ryan
The Hustler

The Big Lebowski

I didn't really get it when I first saw it. But I lived in a house that had digital cable a the time, and it seemed like that movie was on all the time. I kept on seeing bits and pieces and connecting dots. Now I think the movie is brilliant and hilarious. I think Coen brother movies definately fall into this category because they are an acquired taste for most people.

Amen! The Dude abides!:sofunny:

I have to say (since I own almost 1000 DVD's, all widescreen & viewed on a High Def set, of course!) that my top 5 that are better every viewing are:

1) Braveheart (even though 75% not historicaly accurate, still the best film i have ever seen)
2) Shawn of the Dead (funniest movie I have seen in years)
3) Big Lebowski (probably the funniest movie of all time, IMHO)
4) Saving Private Ryan (along iwth the superior Band of Brothers miniseries)
5) Evil Dead 2 (Ash rules...)

Honorable mention goes to every other Coen brothers film.

Am I the only one who liked Wyatt Earp better then Tombstone? Tombstone seemed way too over the top for me and I thought Dennis Quaid's performance was much closer to what we know of Doc Holliday. I also liked Costner's take on Earp, much darker.

evil dead 2 is a classic! my favorite of the 3. its an acid trip without the acid and bruce campbell has to be one of the most underrated b mobie actors ever. i never got into brosco county jr. but his role in it was great.

Have you seen Clerks II yet? It's very funny. I didn't really want to see it at first, but I was dragged into it, and I enjoyed it.

"remember the titans". i cant get enough of this movie no matter how many times ive seen it.

keeps getting better.

maybe im just nostalgic with it being on, on the day of the steelers 1st pre season game, but the message of the movie is much better than the football itself
