    10 becomes too short a list once you get going. All somehow left a strong impression on me. I do find it interesting that well over half of these were made before I hit my mid 20's. Clearly I've grown harder to impress. :)

    Comedy bonus list:
    Up in Smoke
    The Jerk

    I see that some of us have this movie in common. It's very sad that Terri Garr is the only one alive. :(

    I want to add these 3 off the wall movies that I really, really enjoyed:
    Drive Angry (Nicolas Cage)
    Shoot 'Em Up (Clive Owen)
    Smokin' Aces (Ben Affleck)

    If you like action flicks, you owe it to yourself to check these out.

    Also, Broken Arrow (John Travolta and Christian Slater) holds a special place in my heart, as a lot of it was filmed around the top end of the Grand Canyon, near a place called Lee's Ferry. I've spent a lot of time trout fishing and duck hunting there. Probably the most scenic and beautiful place I've ever been.

    Club Paradise: I think one of the most overlooked comedies ever.
    Hudson Hawk. How can someone not like this one.

    I'm seeing "no country for old men" a lot and it's one I've been meaning to see. It must be good.

    Also "the shawshank redemption" is dang good.

    Has anybody seen "the terminal" with Tom Hanks? It's good.

    Also

    "Good will hunting"
    "Rocky 1 & 2"

    And

    Don't forget

    "The hustler" & "the color of money"

    Plus there's

    "Dirty Harry"
