We don't have a rule on highjacking, Sodimm.  Threads are meant to be conversations, especially out here in The Commons.    If there is a discussion taking place that deviates too far and those who are participating wish to bring it back on point, a simple post to bring it back on point is all that is required.    Our primary rule is pretty simple:  Don't be a dick.

See Dick drink. See Dick drive.
Don't be a dick.
Don't drink and drive.

Since I am a movie whore... I watch anywhere from 5 to 15 movies a month... sooo... it's hard to pinpoint the best in the ocean of great movies.

But I will add a few more.... I list these as favorites because.. I own them .. I must have liked them.

Resident Evil and it's sequels (ahh Mila Jovovich... /swoon)
Ev0lution  (kakaww kakaww! tooky tooky tooky!)
Big Trouble in Little China
Underworld (Kate "The Lady" Beckensale)
Rush Hour
300
I am Legend
I, Robot
MIB / MIIB
Independence Day
(Even tho I don't own them all... I've liked most Will Smith movies, something 'bout that man that is easy to like)

for the "Duh" section, we have:
Serenity (+ Firefly series)
Star Wars 1-6
LOTR trilogy
Matrix trilogy
Alien box set
Indiana Jones box set

Where to begin? Some of the top faves and why:

Sanjuro - Grew me up.
Alien - One starship has sexual contact with a dead starship. (see the 3 holes?) Lovecraftian madness ensues.
Dodes Kaden - touching and moving, will take you to a special place.
Day of the Dead - people get to enjoy life made much simpler
King Kong - (except for the 70's version) because King Kong
Life of Brian - touching and moving, will take you to a silly place
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert - not really, just seeing if anybody reads this far.

Uh huh... I had to google it to find out what it was... how exactly did you think of it again?

I liked "To Wong Fu" Much better.   Swazey, Snipes, and Leguizamo in drag?  Who'd wanna miss that?

Baraka.

Wow. A movie that is not a movie, but at the same time is one of the best movies I have ever seen. This film is truly Art and Beauty, a lyric poem for this planet. As one reviewer put it, to watch this movie you should have:

Quote
(1) A copy of Baraka. Steal it if you have to.
(2) The biggest, clearest TV you can find and 5.1 surround.
(3) A fabulously-rolled spleefer as long as your arm.
(4) Phones off the hook, and an empty house with the lights out.
(5) A recliner with a seat belt.
(6) 96 minutes of your time.


I have also posted the parts of the film which you can watch fullscreen in 1080p or 720p from YT. Highly recommended: 

Baraka 1080p - 1


Baraka 1080p - 2


Baraka 1080p - 3


Baraka 1080p - 4


Baraka 1080p - 5


Baraka 1080p - 6


Baraka 1080p - 7

Life of Brian ftw !


~ thanks for the info on Hijacking - some places can be picky so I thought i'd check ;)

Oh and by all means let me know if I'm being a dick, we all have our bad days and don't always know we are expressing them so 'generously' :P.

The Shawshank Redemption. I know it's a cliche but I do like it.

This one is specially for Mocker (ah, I know your weakness hehe):

Girl with a Pearl Earring

This film is exceptionally photographed. Every scene looks like a baroque painting. Great tensions lurk beneath the surface. And of course, a great tale about the relation between love, understanding and art is told. Plus, well, Scarlett Johansson ;). If you are a fan of Scarlett, a fan of Johannes Vermeer, or a fan of (baroque) art, you'll love this film.

Thanks, Walter, for reminding me of one of the All Time Greats.   I know a movie is Great, to me personally, once I far surpass the fifth viewing.   I remember feeling EXACTLY like the kid in the movie after seeing.  My mom stopped me from heading out with my friends one evening, told me I HAD to watch a movie with her.  I bitched, fussed, made all kinds of sour faces.   Grudgingly, not that I had much of a choice, I sat with her and watched it.  Within 15 minutes my teenaged ass was cuddled up with Mom and completely enthralled.   It was the last tender moment I ever had with my mom.  THis movie will always be something special for me in that regard.    Add this one to my list:

The Princess Bride
