    I totally understand that POV. I was too young to see it in the theatres. But that was the first video version I saw of it. The VO isn't bad. The melancholy is cranked up without it though.

    I also like the fact that they clipped the happy ending out in later versions. But hey, this is a movie that is open to WIDE interpretation. That is why it is the best movie the 80s coughed up.

    Okay and I'm sorry this is not a movie, but HBO's "Band of Brothers" has to get a mention in any discussion of modern cinema.

    I feel ya on season 5. And as for the Kenard thing, as Senator Clay Davis would say "Shhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiiiiiiitttttttt"

    But HBO has owned me on Sunday night.
    The Wire
    The Corner
    Rome
    The Sopranos
    Deadwood, etc

    Generation Kill looks interesting and I'm actually forward to it.
    I LOVED Rome and The Corner. Oh, The Corner, that was real. My mom tried to get me into the Wire, but then Comcast got crazy with how much they wanted for premium channels and I cancelled it. The Wire is on my NetFlix list, though!

    I have to think about my favorite movie, but favorite show would be FAMILY GUY! Dr.: give ME a 40 and I could recite those lines ALL day.

    For reals. Daddybear just owned my soul on the Blade Runner tip.

    I would have to throw the original Psycho up in this thread too. Night of the Hunter and the Big Lebowski all should get nods.

    Shylard: Family Guy is some fun. I just watched their SW episode a few weeks ago and laughed too hard.

    ok a few i consider to be above the rest...

    in no particular order:

    dr. strangelove

    one flew over the cuckoos nest (i KNOW that indian can talk and when he says "mmm juicyfruit..." it STILL stirs me up...)

    blazing saddles (arguably the funniest movie ever and if you can't see why i cant help ya...)

    i'll think of some more...my mental rolodex is on the fritz...

    oh and wrap your mind around this...

    two movies i really liked..

    both are sort of mysteries so the FIRST watch is always the most important... (once you know what happens its not the same)

    se7en

    and the usual suspects

    both released in 1995

    both have kevin spacey in a leading role

    (as a villain)

    tell me you KNEW how either of those movies would end before you saw it and i will call you a liar right to your face...

    i love a clever mystery

    Slapshot, Caddyshack and Blues Brothers all deserve some love. Not sure they are my absolute favs but they are high on the list.

    And since DB threw Se7en in there, we should also aknowledge Fincher's FIGHT CLUB. Another one that defies you to put together the ending.

    Have to agree about both Se7en and Fight Club, both are excellent.

    good call doc...

    here's THE LINE from seven:

    " I visited your home this morning after you'd left. I tried to play husband. I tried to taste the life of a simple man. It didn't work out, so I took a souvenir... her pretty head. "

    Daddy and Doc you're friggin killin' me over here
    Dr Strangelove, Se7en, The Usual Suspects, Fight Club, The Good The Bad and the Ugly, all great films. So much for having this thing on lock.

    But for Westerns: how about the original 3:10 to Yuma
    Prison: Bound by Honor (Horale)

    Standout performance was the 6 or so minutes Ted Danson was on screen.
