    The Unforgiven Blackthorne TA. If you haven't seen this yet, it is a must if you are a western movie fan. Clint Eastwood is so perfect in his role and by the end, boy does he seriously fit the bill to a perfect 10!

    One of my favorite "western" movies of all time. Very well done.

    Definitely agree Syl, very good movie; I think yours was the only list that had a Western. Silverado was a different kind of movie; more of a classic group of heros coming together through different circumstances and different purposes to right the wrongs in a town run by evildoers. Very fun, and for some of the characters, you're unsure as to thier allegiance until you see them come down firmly on one side or the other. Very well done in both acting and story and star studded as well:

    Kevin Costner
    Scott Glenn
    Danny Glover
    Kevin Kline
    Brian Dennehy
    Rosanna Arquette
    John Cleese
    Jeff Goldblum

    2 Jaws
    3 Saving Private Ryan
    4 The Breakfast Club
    5 Alien
    6 Star Trek 2: Wrath o' Kahn
    7 Apocalypse Now

    11 3 O'clock High
    12 Seven Samurai
    13 Raiders of the Lost Ark

    Hmm...my favorite movies list is quite elite(not 1337, mind you), so it isn't long.

    The Matrix
    Indiana Jones(all)
    Pulp Fiction
    Jurassic Park
    [Edited in] Dark City

    Hmm...all I can think of that would be "favorites." Not just ones I like. Otherwise there would be Monty Python, Sixth Sense, et cetera.

    Again, no particular order:

    1) Conan the Barbarian (Noticed nobody's mentioned it yet :p)
    2) Braveheart
    3) Terminator
    4) Star Wars (episodes 4,5,6)
    5) Predator (1,2)
    6) Aliens (1,2)
    7) The Rock
    8) Face Off
    9) Monty Python (any)
    10) Die Hard (1,2,3)
    11) Mad Max: The Road Warrior
    12) Waterworld (Don't ask :p)
    13) The Thing
    14) Name of the Rose
    15) Blade Runner

    And nearly anything with Sean Connery or Harrison Ford. Dragonheart *is* crap though :p

    Ghostbusters is pretty good too, but didn't make it to my list. Never ever want to hear about Ghostbusters 2 as it's one of the worst films I've seen.

    Am I the only one who thinks Matrix was bad and that my grandmother can act better than that loser in the main role? :p

    Anyone who likes the Matrix has to go check out Dark City. Imagine the Matrix in Gotham City with way creepier bad guys(albeit no martial arts to speak of).

    generally i like thought-provoking rather than your summer blockbusters. here goes:

    american beauty - a story about your average man and his emancipation, bittersweet ending. brilliant movie.

    notting hill - it's a dumb story but i just like it.

    the usual suspects - it hits you at the end.

    xiu xiu the sent down girl - about a girl's loss of innocense and a man's (eunauch) unconsummated love for her. very moving.

    crouching tiger hidden dragon - i liked the bamboo fighting sequence alot and the fabulous soundtrack.

    schindler's list - this movie was quite an eye opener. I thought that it was very detailed historic movie. Schindler wasn't the kind of savior i thought he was.

    [​IMG] Ok how old are you Count Morgul because I thought both of those movies were little kid humor (4-9). Bean a little bit more so I'm sorry to anyone who is a fan of Bean but I do not think he is funny.
