    Blood Diamond
    The Departed
    The Beach
    Catch Me If You Can

    (I like Leo DiCaprio movies. He's the new Cary Grant.)


    Blazing Saddles (HAHAHAHAHAHA! <---thats what you will be doing watching that movie)

    Men of Honor
    What Dreams May Come
    Outbreak
    As Good As It Gets (all movies with Cuba Gooding Jr., another good actor who unfortunately has ZERO patience.)

    A Time to Kill
    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
    Saving Private Ryan
    Godfather 1 and 2, And part 3? Well...let's just say Sofia doesn't exactly have her fathers talent.

    Just thought of some more....

    Wall Street - It was a movie that I was glued to. And I heard something about a remake, to fit in today's financial world...

    The movie that was not even close to my favourite, and will forever be the scariest one I ever saw was the Exorcist. I mention it here, because if I was to rate a movie for down and dirty horror, and down and dirty accomplishment of objective - to scare the life out of me, that was it. Mission accomplished.....I still get the odd twinge when it is shown on late night tv (but I stay away from the channel it's on).
    (Note: How could anyone have lived with Linda Blair after that......I'd always be wondering if she was going to start yelling something expletive about my mother, in a deep voice!!!!

    Comedy favorites not on my original list

    Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
    American Pie series(especially 1 and 2)
    Raising Arizona(if you can't tell I love the Coen Bros.)
    SuperBad
    Something About Mary(what about Bret Fa-vra?)
    CaddyShack
    Raising Arizona was special!!!!

    Yeah, I did! Listened to Babe Ruth and co. on the radio first both days, though.

    Frankenstein was my first horror movie. Thought I was pretty big stuff getting to stay up with grandpa and watch it. I still cherish Boris Karloff.

    Too cool: Christopher Lee and Boris Karloff were neighbors in London for Karloff's last 4 or so years and became very close friends.

    Not necessarily in this order...

    3) Apollo 13
    4) SuperBad
    5) The Cider House Rules
    6) Napoleon Dynamite
    7) Gladiator
    8) Good Will Hunting
    9) Something About Mary
    10a) Juno (what a suck I am!)
    10b) The first 1/2 to 2/3s of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (I split my gut watching the first hour or so)

    I need to get out and catch some of the new ones, like Dark Knight, Benjamin Button and The Wrestler (Mickey Rourke could have been an all time great actor had he stuck with his craft. I'm glad he is back, and hope his life settles).

    In general, I like movies with Johnny Depp, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Ben Stiller. I was inspired by the first Rocky movie for years....but I'd have trouble watching it now....

    Thanks. Horror and Westerns (my 2 favorite genres by miles and miles) are easy. "The rest" was hard.... I know I left out several.

    I just added Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Salton Sea to my Netflix list. I had The Boondock Saints on the list, but bumped it up higher in the queue.

    I'll watch them soon.
