    The Name of the Rose: A monastery is plagued with strange murders and the inquisition is summoned to investigate (throwing oil on the fire, if you like). Sean Connery plays a relatively rational monk in the middle of it all, trying to discover the truth!! (Christian Slater (yes, really (no tonsure though)), Sean Connery, Ron Perlman, F Murray Abraham and a host of European actors)

    I second this one - very underrated movie.

    Crazy fact about Boo: I actually prefer For a Few Dollars more over The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.


    Not so crazy, I feel the same way - GBU may have had more individually memorable scenes (like Eli Wallach's graveyard jog, or the final 3-way shootout), but I think FFDM may have been the better movie overall. In fact, it irks me a bit that FFDM seems to get "lost in the shuffle" among Leone westerns today, when GBU and OUT actually recycled some of the action and themes that were already in FFDM.

    Inspired by this discussion, I rewatched GBU earlier today and am in the process of rewatching FFDM now. While GBU is the more visually impressive film, FFDM has much greater depth to its story and characters IMO - Gian Maria Volonté plays a really great villain, and the gradually-unfolding subplot about the watch is one of the best subplots in any movie ever IMO. Also, FFDM has some surprisingly engaging humor.

    Posse is a pretty interesting Western. Not classic era, but worth a watch.

    Edit: Quigley Down Under was a very interesting movie, a bit reminiscint of Dances With Wolves. One of the lster 'classic' style Westerns, with quite a few twists.

    Especially if you've had the pleasure of watching Support Your Local Sherrif.

    Too many to list at this time. I don't have an all time favorite, I just like many.

    I do like that Mad Max Fury Road thought. Saw it for the fourth time yesterday. And that is saying a lot. I rarely see a movie more than once in a movie theater considering the price of tickets these days.

    I really liked Saw (can't believe it's been over 10 years since it came out) and some of the sequels were ok too.
    And also even a sicker movie Hostel was kind of cool. It made me feel a little bit sick though lol.

    1. Bunraku

    2. Cabin in the woods.

    3. Guardians of the Galaxy.

    4. Tank Girl.

    5. Wrist Cutters.

    Other stuff I like is all the Monty Python, the LOTR's, the Hobbit, the Marvel movieverse, and a bunch of other random stuff.

    A lot of good lists, and my wife just asked me yesterday about my favorite 5 movies of all time yesterday. I haven't really thought about it in a long time.

    About 10 years ago I would have told you:

    Gladiator
    Saving Private Ryan
    The Last Samurai
    Fight Club
    Casino Royale

    My movie tastes have grown and I like a lot of new things. I enjoy big epic movies (lotr, batman trilogy, pirates of the carribean, marvel, ect). I like Chinese movies like Jet Li's fearless and House of flyi g daggers. I like stepbrothers and team America. I have rated over 1500 movies on Netflix.... But there isn't an easy way for me to convey my 5 star reviews here...

    I just really like film, and I'll leave it at that!

    Seems less terrifying when heads and hands are re-attachable. Then again I can see the humor in lego people being put in that kind of a situation. Doubt Lego as a company would go for it though. :)

    Well, this is a tough one. If I had to list my favorite movies, then I guess it would be something like:

    Freedom Writers
    Finding Forrester
    Bridge to Terabithia
    Mulan
    The Incredibles
    Who Framed Roger Rabbit
    Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
    That's all I can think of, right now.

    Huh, it's the first time I've seen Mary Shelley included in a movie entitled "Frankenstein."

    I am both intrigued and terrified...

    It's a movie based closely on the book that she wrote. I think Robert Deniro stars as the Creature.

    As others have said, there are far too many for me to pick just one. Among my favorites are:

    Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
    Star Trek: Wrath of Khan
    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Cabin in the woods
    Shaun of the Dead
    Big Trouble in Little China
    The Thing
    Prince of Darkness
    Real Genius
    The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
    Bruce Campbell versus the Army of Darkness
    Serenity

    Just to name a very few. And the above list is in no means "In order", nor comprehensive by any stretch of the imagination. Just a few random highlights off the top of my head.
