All Car Movies (except F&F), Hollywood Knights is the BEST! Monty Python's Holy Grail!! It's just a flesh wound!! Anything that makes me laugh and forget about this F--dup world for a while!!!

"Blazing Saddles" kills me evertime I watch it..

As for car flicks......"Hollywood Knights"

Western....."Tombstone"

Don't watch horror movies....they scare me. Unless Jamie Lee Curtis is in it, and we know what thats about.

Old School (unrated version)-"Come on guys, we're going streaking!"
Reservoir Dogs- Nothing funnier than Michael Madsen cutting off that guys ear with a single edge barbershop razor while 'Stuck In The Middle With You' plays in the background. Quentin Tarantino rocks!
Pulp Fiction - Another Quentin Tarantino movie that rocks. 'I'm about to get medieval on your *****'. I loved that scene.
Goodfellas - I still love that movie. Ray Liota was the man.
Fight Club - Just plain bizzar.
American Pie - Really bizzar and funny.
Tombstone - A true classic. I loved Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday.
Meet The Parents - DeNiro killed me in this one.
X-Men - Loved them both.
Go - Not a very well known movie. The scenes with the guy trippin' is killer and how can you not like a good car chase with 'Magic Carpet Ride' playing in the background.

I can see you are a man of EXCELLENT taste!

Best movie ever ? Wow that's tough, there have been SO many great ones..........

On the "fun" side there's American Grafitti, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and Monty Python and the Holy Grail at the top of my list.

As for action/drama I have to rate Saving Private Ryan as "Best" at least in recent years. I also like We Were Soldiers, A Bridge Too Far and Blackhawk Down but I can't watch that one very often.

My apologies to anyone whose favorite I omitted, I probably like that one too..

American Graffiti, Porky's and Monty Python and the Holy Grail are probably at the top of my list. Oh! And I just saw Heart Like A Wheel (the story of Shirley Muldowney) and watched it three times in 2 weeks. Seabiscuit is another good movie about the dreams of 3 men being brought to life by a race horse. For a good classic I like Roman Holiday, and Heidi (with Shirley Temple) or a good Jimmy Stewart movie.


There are others I'm sure, the names just totally escape me right now.

All the comedies like Happy Gilmore, Blazing Saddles, Smoky and the Bandit, Jackie Chan, or any action movies. All the movies with Sly or Arnold are classics.
