Definitely Equilibrium is great, for me much better that the Matrix.
All time favorite, Big Trouble in Little China - Indeed!
Full Metal Jacket, every frame of that movie could stand on it's own. The opening of Act 2 downtown Saigon with Nancy Sinatra belting out "These
boots are made for walking" rather than the obligatory Stones tune is brilliant.
The Blues Brothers and Christmas Vacation. And for pure Guerrilla film making, the original Gone in 60 Seconds.
I keep reading that the movie was amazing and such but I didn't even make it to the chess scene. I spent an hour and 40 minutes watching that movie
and haven't been so bored in my life in a long time. I usually spend 10-20 minutes before switching a movie off but figured it's supposed to be a
classic so I'll give it chance but just couldn't get through it.
Also I know I'm not American but I haven't seen The Exorcist and I best remember Max Von Sydow for Judge Dredd and Solomon Kane.
Also two very good movies, didn't think to mention those.
In no particular order, movies that are so good that I can watch them over and over again.
Matrix the movie who definitely changed my perspective on reality. Legends of the Fall all time classic, really Lord of the Rings epic, of course Keith a movie I never understood why it's so ignored Cube not being such a fan of horror, this was original and so well done The Horse Whisperer, wonderful, and if I'm at it, also the documentary Buck about the man who inspired this movie - directed by and
with Robert Redford Mystic River great, great movie - directed by Clint Eastwood
there are some more, but enough for now.
....and now my all time favorite, the delight of my heart: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Thank you all for the great recommendations. A lot to catch up.

2001 A Space Odyssey
It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World
Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
edit on 29-10-2011 by DManc77 because: I nearly forgot Fear & Loathing
It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World, forgot all about that one, and I watch it every chance I get. Te redux of it "Rat Race" is pretty good, as
well. The scene when the jeep is chasing Seth Green and Vince Vieluf up the radar tower is hilarious.
