  • Godfather is another good choice, although there's only one scene that I must watch (the hospital scene, which is the best in the movie and the only scene Al Pacino has ever done post-1975 up to the level of Dog Day Afternoon).

      mookie also never seen Tommy Boy
      Hitchcock movie about Leopold and Loeb. One of Jimmy Stewart's greatest performances (Vertigo, Winchester 73, Harvey).

      See it as a double feature with Compulsion.

      Kepler has never seen Airheads, Shawshank, or Apollo 13. Or Gremlins.

      Not on principle; just hasn't happened.

        I love Compulsion. That’s another I’ll watch every time. It’s just never on.
        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

          TCM played it a couple days ago.

          The two guys are great. And the scene with the girl at the crime scene is amazing. I want to reach through the screen and help her.

          I would like to see a version of L&L told strictly from their perspective. It would be an interesting experiment. Stewart's performance in Rope comes the closest, but it still takes the easy way out on the philosophy. I'd like to see it done with absolutely no short cuts. It's an even more scary story then.

            Fredo doesn’t get cancer, where’s he end up in the pantheon of American actors?

            or did he just get incredibly lucky?

              That wasn't luck. The wrong guy got cancer.

              I haven't seen DDA in about 3 years, it's time. I can't watch it more frequently than that. There isn't a single second where you can relax. It's the 100 meters of movies.

              And Jesus F-ck the ending.

                Young Frankenstein

                Terminator
                Predator
                Jaws

                The thing about these movies for me is I can pick them up at any point in media res and it's just as much fun.
                Lebowski
                Contact
                The Dark Knight
                Devil Wears Prada (fight me)
                Star Trek First Contact
                Bad Boys 2
                Iron Man

                I'd have to think a little more to round out that list.
