    In no particular order:

    Braveheart
    Pulp Fiction
    Kill Bill
    Reservoir Dogs (yes, there is a pattern here)
    The Longest Day
    The Godfather series, except for part 3
    The Matrix
    Lots of stupid and silly stuff like Kung Pow! Enter The Fist; and other silly stuff by Woody Allen and Monty Python; which can still elicit adolescent laughter from me.

    I loved Zoolander!! So many of my friends, co-workers and even my husband, all look at me strange when I talk about how funny Zoolander was. Glad I found someone who thought it was a funny as I did.

    Kinda OT here but in the goofs department...In The Heat Of The Night...the scene outside the diner with Poitier, Steiger, and Oates...they're talking and it's supposed to be a hot night...right?

    Well, the actors' breaths can easily be seen.

    I also forgot about Zoolander; what a funny movie, *smashes computer on the floor, puzzled look* "Where are all the files?!"

    They were probably all just exhaling smoke from unfiltered Camel cigs or Winstons; as you would back then. In those days, 78% of doctors agreed that Winston was the smoke of choice.
    That is a great movie though; great performances all around.

    Just went to see The Warriors last night. Thoes of us young enough to remember seeing it when it came out in 1979 may remember Luther ..." WARRIORS, COME OUT AND PLAY " clanking the beer bottles with his fingers.
    I saw it back then at the drive-in.


    The Victoria Theatre in San Francisco has it running on the big screen threw next week I think. Great older street gang film.

    Yes, a great movie...perfect casting with excellent performances.
    You may have been kidding about all exhaled ciggy smoke, but according to IMDB the movie was shot in Illinois during a chilly autumn, which also explains the voluminous exhaust from Gillespie's patrol car driving up Endicott's driveway and other scenes where it "looks" chilly rather than warm and humid.

    I love movies, and my taste runs the gamut. I'm a sucker for a great historical period drama, or a cool foreign film, or a classic screwball comedy, but when Die Hard comes on TV, I have to stop and watch it. Every. Single. Time! The only thing I can't abide by are gory slasher films (like Saw), or a stereotypical cheezy romantic comedy that's been done to death.

    Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order.

    L.A. Confidential
    The Fifth Element
    That Thing You Do
    Gosford Park
    Maurice
    Die Hard
    Apollo 13
    The Green Mile
    Beetlejuice
    Ed Wood
    Pulp Fiction
    The Shawshank Redemption
    The Holiday
    Empire Records
    Muriel's Wedding
    Desk Set
    I Remember Mama
    Love Actually
    Bring It On
    The Departed
    Pride & Prejudice (2005)
    Harold and Maude
    Amelie
    Almost Famous
