    Nice Marmot I've seen better ways, man. I know better ways.

    Tryon NC
    The Big Lebowski
    A History of Violence
    There Will Be Blood
    Blazing Saddles

    A couple of new contenders are The Handmaiden and In Bruges. I've got to get copies to see if they hold the weight of repeat viewings or if they're one time things.

    1) Being There (the great Peter Sellers in his acting/character masterpiece. Hillarious in parts)

    2)Empire Strikes Back-(still captures my imagination. )

    3)The Searchers (best western ever)

    4)Together (Chinese movie about father and son who is a violin virtuoso)

    5)The Lives Of Others (German movie about the Gastapo in the 80's)

    6) Pans Labyrinth (awesomely filmed and great twists)

    7)City Of God (Brazilian movie about the drug slums)

    8)Song Of The Sea (Irish animated story. Amazing looking as well as a cool legend story)

    9) Shaun Of The Dead- (best parody movie ever)

    Bonus points for including one of the cornetto trilogy, I prefer Hot Fuzz more myself though ;^)

    And I gotta check out the searchers, never heard of it.

    I think Jaws is at 25 for me now. Have you ever seen Tremors? Those remind me of eachother. I would recommend it if you havnt, great escape back to the fun of movies in the 70s, although it was made in the 90s, would have fooled me ;^D

    Both movies are funny as heck!

    The Searchers is an all time classic. Old style of course. But a great panaramic story.

    All fine leading men. Those have been on TCM the last few weeks, but because of length, I had to skip. I'm a huge McQueen fan, so I saw that before (should see it again), and I'd like to see the Eastwood/Burton duo.. "You do all the shooting, I'll do the talking" was mentioned in one of Burton's interviews (which are interesting, too).
