As a native of Philly, I hate Rocky! I am so damn sick and tired of 'Eye Of The Tiger" and those stupid mantages. He's making part VI right now,
and every freaking day I get caught in traffic because of it!
In fact, a buddy of mine had a boxing match last night and I actually watched as more people went to get autographs from Sly and his stupid brother
frank (yes, I did not use caps on the 'F' on purpous) then Joe Frazier!!!!
Any way, as to the original question...
I really liked Saving Private Ryan. Great movie. And if you count mini-series, then Band Of Brothers would have to be up there too. The Exorcist gets
a nod as well, just because it was the only horror movie that ever got one spec of reaction out of me (when that little girl runs down the stairs
upside down and vomits, I actually got chills).
Another good one - to get back to the Philly theme - is Trading Places with Dan Akroyd and Eddie Murphy. Absolutely hysterical!
And one more on the Philly note: M. Night Shamlaghns (spl?) The 6th Sense was very good as well. It was the first of that theme (where the main
character doesn't know "it" is really him). He actually went to my rival high school...
Ohhh, and one more. If you haven't seen it, I would suggest renting "Momento". It's definately one of the most original movies I have ever
BTW - Good call Strangecraft. The dude is the man.
