    Surprised almost nobody mentioned the original Star Wars trilogy. Or have the prequels ruined it for everyone? I deal with it by pretending it never happened, just like I did the first time the doctor touched me down there.

    Hard to pick just one, but my Top 5 all time would be:

    Star Wars
    Animal House
    Field of Dreams
    Breakfast at Tiffany's
    The Adventures of Robin Hood


    I mentioned it! The prequels were horrible but the first film still stands as one of the best movies ever and one that totally changed the film industry and the world.

    It was a joke, and anyone with an interest in science fiction pitched at adults should be ashamed of even sitting through the whole movie.

    If you had to pick one?
    Return of the Jedi closely followed by the German version of 'Non c'è due senza quattro' called: Vier Fäuste gegen Rio.

    I had a dream that Lawrence of Arabia was finally released on blu-ray to a twelve disc set. Alas, it was just a dream.

    They are showing The Dark Knight on Global and even though I don't really like it all that much, I must admit the opening scene is superb in every way imaginable.

    Back To The Future

    To me, it's the perfect movie. It's good for both adults and kids. It's got action, it's got comedy, it's got suspense, it's got characters who you actually care about.

    Such a creative idea. What a great movie.


    Ya, the whole series is great. I bought the set as soon as they were released on blu-ray. I've watched them countless times.

    The frequency with which i've watch each is the decreases with the order of the movies. #3 has Mary Steenburgen and i've always had a crush on her tho. I wish more women were like her. Yes, she's old, but still very attractive: [​IMG] I'd insta-wife any girl i met that reminded me of her.

    ^ That's a great candid shot of her.

    Ted Danson, aside from being insanely rich, is a lucky dude.

    I guess I can see her appeal but the movie sucked so bad that no amount of pretty faces could save it.

    I'd encourage anyone ripping on Back To The Future 3 to re-watch it. It's really not a bad movie, and it's a great capper to the trilogy. Nothing is as good as #1, but Zemeckis and Bob Gale really get to pay off a lot of stuff in #3.

    Arguably tied for spot #1 would be Annie Hall. It's both hilarious and brilliant. One of the only comedies to ever win best picture, it really demonstrates that drama heightens comedy. The laughter is that much deeper when you actually care about the characters.

    Almost every year around christmass the series is rerun here. Still awesome. I used to rate the movies as 1,3,2. But as I got older the second one got rehabilitated somewhat and I rate them as 1, 2&3. I'd still watch any movie with M.J.F. in it.

    WRONG!
