    Oh my! My brain is fried, I know I have a bunch more favorites, but I think I'll make another post out of those I've forgotten.
    One note to add to the list:
    Can't find it on Video, and definetly not on DVD... It's a Historical Documentary(nice way of saying Nazi Propaganda Film) I think it only exist on Reel Film that you'd get at a Library or University and it's called:
    'Triumph of the Will'- a Hauntingly Nationalism Inspiring film, I know..don't ask, it's just good...then you catch yourself saying, wait a minute these are the Nazi's were talking about and then it draws you back in...weird, go figure!

    Mrhat. I won't give you crap about Titanic (it has faults, but it's a good film overall) but I will give you crap about Scary Movie 1 and 2 and (shudders) Hannibal. Ugh. It's in a race with SpyKids to be "The worst movie of the year" in my book.

    Xir. I know what you mean about Triumph of the Will. Lani Reifenstahl was a cinematic genius. Too bad she was a friggin' Nazi...and I think you CAN find it on DVD. We watched it in a film class and the prof. had it on DVD. Theres also a documentary on Reifenstahl herself and the other movies she made. She made about the '36 Olympics that was really amazing too. I think it's called Olympiad.

    Rollo Tomassi, good call on Lonesome Dove ! I love it. Did you ever see Return to Lonesome Dove? TL Jones passed on it, so Jon Voigt played Call. By itself it was good, but not comparable to the original.

    Stillakid, your citation of This is Spinal Tap warms my heart.
