    A Few Good Men

    Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, Kevin Bacon, Kiefer Sutherland, Cuba Gooding, and more. Ah yes - and Colonel Markinson

    This was a great masterpiece actually - some of the finest performances were acted out in exchanges between Cruise and many of his co-stars. Plus there were great and unforgettable lines uttered in this film.

    The truth?

    YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

    We live in a world that has walls and that requires men with guns to stand on those walls.

    There was so much here and a stellar cast. Well played.

    Tom Cruise as Navy Defense Attorney Danniel McCaffey defends two Marines who accidentally killed a fellow soldier while trying to covertly discipline him - but under orders from a high up Colonel who was eyeing a security council post (Colonel Jessup - played by Jack Nicholson).

    nbc was showing this a few years ago. i found the advertising for it quite hilarious. "a few good men" starring tom cruise, jack nicholson and er's noah wyle. he has such a bit part in the flick, but they were hyping it like it was bacon's part he played.

    a pretty good flick all around. third behind casablanca and star wars probably the movie i quote the most.

    See Born on the 4th of July to see Tom Cruise as a depressed, down-and-out, paralyzed Vietnam War veteran who has nothing to be cocky about. He can play a different type of character - he just usually wasn't cast as one. Is that his fault?

    Which one? A Few Good Men? or Born on the 4th of July? We started discussing 2 different films for a second there.

    I agree, A Few Good Men is one of the greatest films of all time. I have memorized Jack's famous speech and can recite it on command...word for word!

    Yes, I know...I'm a sick person and I need help.
    May the force be with you.

    Full Metal Jacket - Platoon was way better IMO
    Matrix - the first one was great. Maybe they should have stopped there?
    Gladiator - didn't see it
    Good Will hunting - didn't see it
    Top Gun - I loved this movie so much I saw it in the theaters like 6 times.
    Dirty Dancing - mmmm. OK. Recast it might've been really great.
    As Good As It Gets - Funny, but not terribly memorable.
    Rounders -didn't see it
    Heat - awesome actually. Great battle scenes in the bank heist.
    Italian Job - didn't see it
    Blade - awsome as well. It went downhill with the sequels.
    ALL Star Wars movies - I kind of liked those. That's the series with Darth Vader, right?
    American History X - good movie! Very thought provoking.
    Underworld - didn't see it
    First Knight - I liked this one myself. I was surprised to see it on your list.
    Reign Of Fire- didn't see it


    just a few off the top of my head, sorry not intending to thread jack
    That's OK - but start threads for any of the movies above that you want to discuss separately. I always do

    The topic here is A Few Good Men

    And I eat breakfast 300 yards away from thousands of men who are trained to kill me
