    No James Bond Fans or Harry Potter fans out there?

    My short list of Movies I tend to watch everytime they come on.

    1) Jaws - the original. Classic monster movie with a plot that could not have unfolded any better.
    2) White Heat - James Gagne classic and perhaps his best. This is the one with the Grapfruit in the face scene and "Top of the world Ma"
    3) The Matrix - part I only.
    4) Casino
    5) Good Fellas
    6) Johnny Brasco
    7) Full Metal Jacket.
    8) Pulp Fiction
    9) The God Father
    10) Most Westerns.
    11) Dirty Harry
    12) Death Wish - Charles Bronson plays vigilante. Part 1 was the best but they are all decent.
    13) The Others - classis ghost story and Nicole Kidman looks hot even playing a creep.
    14) Jerassic Park.
    15) Whatever, I am sure there are plenty more I am leaving out.

    I'll see your roundhouse right, and reply with a left jab and right uppercut.

    Johnny Neumonic (horrible movie, but based off a great short story in William Gibson's "Burning Chrome" collection)

    and the killer?

    They Live! - starring Rowdy Roddy Piper (awesome alley fight scene).

    One of my faves as well, max, great pick, although Cagney's grapefruit scene was actually from The Public Enemy.

    "Made it, Ma! Top of the world!"

    Both White Heat and The Public Enemy are out on really nice-looking DVDs, max, if you don't already have one or the other.

    Was Public enemy the one where he played a gangster who turned good but lost everything in the depression except for 1 cab and saved his x-girlfriends husband by stroming his old rivals (played by Hunphry Bogart) mansion?

    Angels with Dirty faces was a good one.

    No, that one was The Roaring Twenties. And yeah, Angels With Dirty Faces is great.

    I like "revenge" movies: Shawshank Redemption, Harlem Nights, An Innocent Man.

    Drama Movies: The Client, The Pelican Brief

    Just for fun: My Cousin Vinnie, Romie and Michelle Highschool Reunion, Zorba, Trading Places, Coming to America, Birdcage, The Son in Law

    Favorite Fellini films: La Strada, Nights of Cabiria

    Godfather 1 and 2. Didnt care for 3. A little trivia: the baby getting christened in GF1 was director Francis Ford Coppola's newborn daughter. Then in GF3, she played Al Pacino's daughter (cant think of her name) and now she directs her own films. Also, Connie (Talia Shire) is Coppola's sister.

    Nice selections BSA!

    I just watched the new Pink Panther movie with Steve Martin. Great stuff. I was laughing out loud. That Adam Sandler idiot humor doesn't do it for me. Something to be said for the masters like Martin. A++.
