The Searchers
An epic western, truly not only one of the Ford/Wayne combo's best, but one of the best of the genre. The sceanary was awe inspiring, set in west Texas, but shot on Monument Valley, many credit the Duke's fatal cancer with the time he spent shooting not far from where the US Army was testing it's nukes.


Boondock Saints
Remined me alot of Pulp Fiction and Reservior Dogs, but also took time to make fun of itself, and the genre. William Dafoe's character is priceless; "TV's to blame for this. Nobody does this shit in real life!"

The Blues Brothers
What can I say? "We're on a mission from God"

Memphis Belle
An incredible story about one B-17 crew in the 8th Air Force, helped to show what those men had to endure on a daily basis. The terrible losses they suffered, and the terrors they witnessed. Reminded me alot of Twelve O'Clock High another good WWII bomber crew movie.

The Endless Summer is a great movie, I actually saw part 2 a few weeks ago, not as good as part 1, but they are amazing movies.

Black Hawk Down
Pulp Fiction
Me, Myself, And Irene

As for those not mentioned earlier:

Requiem for a dream (Best movie ever made)
The Rock (Not that one KROC)
Lord of the Rings Trilogy (haven't seen the last one, but it's bound to be great.)
Gladiator. (Whoa)
Gone in 60 seconds (So many cars.  Smokin cool )
The Matrix (A classic now)
The Patriot (Mel Gibson one incase you wondered)
Snatch (Speaks for itself)
51st state.
The Star Wars movies have wonderful effects, but the acting is absolute crap.

That's all I can think of now

For those of you that said "Gone in 60 Seconds," I'm guessing you're refering to the Nick Cage remake of a few years ago, correct? Has anyone seen the original movie from the 70's?

I for one liked it a helluva lot better; it didn't get bogged down trying to graft a plot onto an action movie, it was just what it claimed to be, a movie about car chases, the last 45 minutes being one, big car chase (they had to delay filming for 3 months because the star/producer/director/financer/head stuntman broke his arm in an unplanned auto accident that made it into the movie anyway.)

Absolutly worth your time if you can find a copy of the original, I think it's been released onto DVD.
