#1 with a bullet -- Cool Hand Luke.  I watch it at least annually.  Helps me git my mind right!  Paul Newman as Luke, a basically good hearted guy who can't behave for five minutes.  Strother Martin as the Cap'n, with George Kennedy, and  Harry Dean Stanton.  Brings back tender memories of my mis-spent youth.  (Thankfully, I never had to spent a night in the box.)  Great movie, but you won't want to eat boiled eggs for a month.

Casablanca  

Rio Bravo

Chariots of Fire

My Cousin Vinny

Quigly Down Under

Terminator

The God's Must Be Crazy

The Maltese Falcon

Pat Garret and Billy the Kid (Hey man, Dylan's in it!)

In Harm's Way

On Any Sunday (70's dirt bike documentary) cheesy music, great riding!

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (This was a great tailgate party movie, back when we had Drive in's.  NO!!! NO MAN!!!, DON"T GO IN THERE!!!)  One night, one of my bud's fired up the ol' McCullough and started cutting his way into the drive-in through the hedge.  The whole joint cleared out in minutes.

Ah, those were the days!

Brian,  I noticed the movie "Ghost Dog" among your favorites.   I see that name around here alot.  What's the skinny on this one?   Can I rent it at Blockbuster?   It's gotta be metaphysical right?

I've got on DVD, and I'm watching it on my girlfriends Imac right now. It's Jim Jarmusch, so it's thought provoking. It quotes text from the book - "Hagakure, the way of the Samurai." Pretty good stuff, especially for a movie.

Another vote for 'Pat Garett and Billy the Kid'. Especially the opening (chicken shooting) scene and the "Keep the change, Bob" scene. Both are pure Sam Peckinpah.

Don't forget 'The Hunt for Red October'. "Some things don't react well to bullets."

And some might find 'The Legend of Bagger Vance' interesting. "You can't make that ball go in the hole, you have to let it." Reminicent of another game on another type of course.

Heat's Bank robbery scenes were "choreograped" by Andy McNabb.

I didn't know Andy M. was in the movie biz. Thought Harry Humphries had that all tied up.

TT,

funny, I was thinking the same thing! You create a thread for a database, and this is what you get!

After the chitchating has run it's course, I'll do some deletin.'

And note, if you add movies to your original post, do it in YOUR ORIGINAL POST. Otherwise, it doesn't take much for a good thread to go bad.

Any moderatin' volunteers for this forum? hehe

Yep, Andy M. was the technical advisor for the movie. The counter-ambush scenes were authentic SAS, if I remember correctly from his website.

Brian, thank you.  Ghost Dog was really enjoyable.  Communiation aspects were very cool.  Alot to think about.  It left me feeling kinda sad though.  I'm not sure why.

El Mariachi

From Dusk to Dawn (gave my girlfriend nightmares for days)

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Beautifully photographed, classic story, well choreographed sword sequences.

Watch in chinese with english subtitles, viewing the dubbed version will annoy at best and cause screen damage at worst (cause you will shoot it)
