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.

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.

Jackass? Entertaining perhaps, but it's sure not a "good movie".  Smile

As for Gone in 60 seconds, I was refering to the remake. Haven't seen the 70s version.

Again; Does anyone know what other movies Edward Norton have played in apart from AmHistoryX? I'm pretty sure I saw him in a quite famous film, but I can't remember where. (I don't think he played the main character either...)

Have to agree in one classic with Krushny with Amarcord, my all time favorite film (also other Fellini films like Federico Fellini's Rome or La Dolce Vita)

Well, more spanish cinema:

-Airbag.
-El dia de la Bestia. (Anybody here knows Santiago Segura?)
-Bajarse al Moro. (A very young Antonio Banderas smoking pot and doing other things he'd probably wants to forget...)

Some others like:

-El hijo de la novia
-The Cube


And of course, I love that big fantastic productions like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and many others (Better and Worse)

Oh! forgot to mention Sanley Kubrick stuff:

-Clockwork Orange.
-La Chaqueta Metalica (Irony Jacket??? sorry, dont know English title)
-2001, 2010.

Mighluss,

La chaqueta metálica = Full Metal Jacket .
I agree it is a great film. The first part in the Marines training camp is too buffonesque in my opinion, but the second part in Vietnam is one of the best war cinema I have ever seen.

El dia de la bestia is great too. Airbag is funny , but for me the Torrente films are much better. Santiago Segura will make history in Spanish cinema, I am sure.
