Glad I got to see Matrix though. I watched it twice in a row end to end, and again once from beginning to end the next day. Fantastic movie. I hear they are coming out with a part 2.

Apocalypse Now

Godfather 1 and 2

Requiem for a dream

Blade Runner

I agree with Bruce, Matrix is very good. \" Reload \" (the second part) and \" Revolution \" (the third part) filmed committees, at the cost of 300 million dollars. Promises fantastic special effects. The directors said that some
scenes are so complex and spent so much money that difficultly somebody will get to imitate.

\"Smell\" is our hobby! See that matrix parody:

Or see some Matrix 2scenes:

Good choices. I can agree with everything Xehupatl and Whitehall recommended, and most of what Exit 63 recommended.

Here’s five more:

Dead Man
Dr. Strangelove
The Bicycle Thief (and its parody — the Icicle Thief)

10-16-2002, 03:34 PM
You folks are very good with your movie selections. I like submarine films:

Das Boat
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea
Crimson Tide
Hunt For Red October

They are all great to watch at night when it\'s raining by the fire with a good date and a Damiana Margarita...

10-16-2002, 03:48 PM
EXIT63 - I like your wide variety featuring comedy... Check these funnies out from my collection:

Life of Brian
The Meaning of Life
Start the Revolution Without Me
Animal House
Porky\'s I
The Jerk
Vacation I
Analyse This
Spinal Tap

There are so many more but these made me laugh out loud...

10-16-2002, 03:59 PM
\"Dr. Strangelove\" - such a very, very funny movie.

The Atlantic Monthly had a piece in this month\'s issue where some historians rated a number of movie presidents as if they were the real thing. President Merkin Muffley got a low score.

10-16-2002, 04:05 PM
Whitehall - Did they rate Peter Sellers as the president in \"Being There\"?

10-18-2002, 09:16 AM

10-18-2002, 03:33 PM
\"Being There\" - not rated in that article about movie presidents. Sorry.

10-18-2002, 03:57 PM

Did I mention BRAVEHEART?

\"....and they fought like warrior poets, they fought like scotsmen.....And won their freedom.\"

10-18-2002, 06:28 PM
OH GOD I love that movie. You\'re right, that\'s an all time great. It has everything - great action scenes, a real true hero to make your heart sing, a tragic love story, noble ideals, a beautiful and brave heroine ... Did you like Rob Roy? I am a big Jessica Lange fan and thought that was a good movie, too.

10-18-2002, 07:00 PM
i didn\'t see it but I will check it out.

10-18-2002, 07:02 PM
Any Scots in your heritage?

10-18-2002, 07:05 PM
maybe, can\'t tell for sure. I have traced my hertiage to Irish ancestors (Though Scots, Irish, Welsh, and some English people were descendents of a group of people called the Celts which were an offshot of a germanic tribe). A lot of Braveheart was filmed in Ireland.

BTW- The druids were members of celtic soceity, they were scholars and served reglious purposes.

10-18-2002, 07:17 PM
Yes, I know about Druids, very cool. Have always wanted to go to Stonehenge. My ancestors are a Brit mix, too - English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, first ancestor in the US was a Scotsman. It was cool to see a Scottish hero, made me proud. Finally some association other than \"those men who wear skirts.\" \'bout time!

10-18-2002, 07:21 PM
Hey its a kilt /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif Those are the same guys eatin Haggis....Now that will put some hair on your balls and chest.... /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

10-18-2002, 07:23 PM
Well, you know it and I know it, but try convincing the rest of the world! lol I\'ll pass on the haggis, thank you, but don\'t mind eating my share of oatmeal. See what I mean? We\'re even busting ourselves out. Scots get no respect. At least now we have Braveheart to point to.

I will probably regret admitting this, but ... did you see Oh Brother Where Art Thou? I love that stupid movie to death, it cracks me up.

10-18-2002, 07:26 PM
i seen parts of it but my mom loves it. She finds it halarious.

10-18-2002, 07:28 PM
I do too. It\'s corny corn corn humor but it cracks me up, I can\'t help it.

10-19-2002, 04:06 AM
I highly recommend a film called \"Requiem For A Dream\"

Jennifer Connelly as you\'ve never seen her before.
Rent it today.

10-19-2002, 09:12 AM
i saw frakenhooker a while ago. It is kinda silly they piece together this hooker from dead hookers. Her arms or legs don\'t match, it is kinda funny. I thought 12 monkeys was pretty good also, but most people I know just don\'t get it.

10-19-2002, 09:16 AM
I really liked 12 Monkeys. Seems we have similar tastes. But I must confess, Bruce Willis and Mel Gibson could probably be in anything and I\'d watch it...my two top faves.

10-19-2002, 09:23 AM
Gladiator has to be in there somewhere too...

10-19-2002, 09:59 AM
Kind of love/hate thing I have going with both Mel Gibson and Bruce Willis movies. I can\'t watch most of the movies that either star in, but love certain exceptions and have seen them all several times each:
Bruce Willis
Blind Date
Gangland remake of a Japanese (Kurasawa) movie (can\'t remember the name)

Mel Gibson
A few others (names fail me at the moment)


10-19-2002, 10:16 AM
Hamlet and The Bounty are my 2 favorite Mel Gibson movies. And ofcourse Braveheart.

I can\'t think of 1 good Bruce Willis movie. IMO Pulp Fiction is OK but I never understood why everyone is so crazy about it. I\'m runnung for my life but wait a minute. I have to stop and make some pop tarts. And what about that soundproof bathroom. The assassin doesn\'t hear kitchen cabinet doors slamming and toasters popping? Does he shut his ears off while he\'s takin a dump. Gimme a Break. And then. How come he\'s alive again 5 minutes later? Please.

Rent Jane Doe. It\'s Callista Flockharts greatest performance.

10-19-2002, 11:03 AM
Exit63 - If Callista Flockhart could gain 30 pounds so she could make an appearance on the screen, I would rent Jane Doe!!! She\'s way too thin for me to watch IMHO - She\'s gonna\' blow away at any minute. /ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif I\'m sure the movie is good though.

Mel was great in the first movies of the Lethal Weapon & Mad Max series. Bruce was great in Die Hard & Pulp Fiction... Why did he have to start selling Pheromones? /ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif

10-19-2002, 11:09 AM
When you watch Pulp Fiction remember that it is not show in linear order....terntino filmed the movie then divided the scences up and reordered them....And Die hard was fckin awesome...Anyone here see Patriot??? another good gibision movie....

10-19-2002, 11:18 AM
I\'ve seen all of Mel Gibon\'s movies and mostly don\'t remember anything about the plots. I just like to look at him. Pulp was great for a lot of reasons - I love the way Bruce Willis handled his dippy but gorgeous little sweetie in that movie, John Travolta was great with -- what\'s her name, tall skinny girl -- I loved their date -- well, the first part of it at least! lol Quentin Tarantino does get a little graphic.

Bruce Willis\'s smile makes my heart turn over and he\'s got that twinkle in his eye. Mel Gibson -- words fail me....

Calista Flockhart\'s so skinny it\'s hard to look at her.

10-19-2002, 11:22 AM
Yeah, I forgot about that one. The Patriot was great.

I don\'t think Callista is hot. But I thought the film was very well done. It\'s not a \"Hollywood\" movie. Very low budget. That\'s what makes it good.

10-19-2002, 11:25 AM
I think you\'re misunderstanding me. I\'m talking about the films themselves.

Die Hard Schmie Hard

10-19-2002, 11:31 AM
I like the second Die Hard better. The one with Sam Jackson. Or is it that other guy. I always mix those 2 up.

10-19-2002, 12:55 PM
Schindlers List
Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein
The Times of their Lives
The Creature from the Black Lagoon
Ed Wood
The Attack of the Crab Monster
Fritz the Cat
Gone With the Wind

10-19-2002, 10:50 PM

I had a dear friend in high school who took a big wrong turn into a heroin addict. At one time I checked in with him and I swear I thought that was going to be the last - he looked so bad!

He finally got cleaned up and now\'s he a lawyer - public defender - he\'s made a good life after all.

But Trainspotting got it right on the money about the life of a serious heroin addict.

Is clerks in Black and White?

05-22-2003, 05:11 AM
Do I care if they\'re old? Nope. They\'re my favorites of all time, and that was the question. I can watch these movies at the drop of a hat and still be entertained.

Yep. Clerks is in B&amp;W.
