.... there are so many.... I'm huge on movies. The wife wants to throw my collection out. To date the asian movie collection is closing in on the 1k mark. On a side note, I noticed that only one of my fellow Steeler fans jotted down the most underrated and IMO the greatest movie ever to be put out straight to video. It is no B-rated movie, in fact I have proliferated this movie to most of my friends and they've in turn have spread the gospel to their peeps. So I'll clue you in on this movie, if you haven't seen it, rent it.... its friggen awesome!

"The Boondock Saints"

A little known fact about me is that my name was partially inspired by that movie. I like the movie, but it didn't make my "great" list. However when picking a username for some reason the thought entered my head "Meet Joe Black?? Hell, it would be worse meeting Joe Greene. Hence MeetJoeGreene".

While I was typing another awesome movie just occured to me: Devli's Advocate with Al and Keanu.

I would put in no unnecessary order.

"Legends of the fall'
Anthony Hopkins summed it up about the horror of the military on our own.

"Die Hard"
First time , in modern history you got to see a regular guy, (not a SEAL, or special forces.)
put into an untennable situation to save the damsel in distress.

Guess I've run out of movies, well "ALIEN" is better than o.k. too.
All of you have put forth a great and wonderful list(s) of Cinema best. BTW.

In no particular order:

Princess Bride - I've seen it a kazillion times, and pretty much know it by heart

Monty Python and the Holy Grail - again, know it very well, and quote it randomly quite often

Remember the Titans - any time I catch it on TV, I have to watch it...doesn't matter that I have it on DVD

Harry Potter Movies (all of them) - the books are better, but I love the movies, too

There's a ton of other movies that I love, but I would have to put these as my all-time favorites.

You know, I would have never said Jaws, but I agree, I almost always watch it if it's on.

A shout out needs to go the "Revenge of the Nerds". For many people of my generation (mid 30's), this was the 1st movie that we witnessed frontal female nudity south of the belt buckle. The summer of 86 or 87 this movie was on Showtime about 10 times/week -along with "The Goonies" (that also deserves a shout out).

The best Stephen King stories adapted to the big screen were the ones that had nothing to do with horror or the supernatural (The Shawshank Redemption and Stand By Me).

I'm also a fan of pretty much anything by:
Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, etc.)
David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, etc.)
Judd Apatow (40 Year Old Virgin, Superbad, etc.)
Tim Burton (Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, etc.)
Mel Brooks (Spaceballs, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, etc.)

When it comes to comedy, the stupider the better for the most part. I'll watch all the movies with Sandler, Ferrell, Myers, Farley, Carrey, Stiller, etc., plus I like earlier Eddie Murphy stuff like Trading Places and Beverly Hills Cop and Coming to America, classics like Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Animal House and Naked Gun, sports comedies like Major League and Caddyshack and Slap Shot, some cult flicks like Grandma's Boy and High Fidelity and Best in Show, under-the-radar stuff like Strange Brew and UHF and Amazon Women on the Moon, and my wife gets sick of the fact that I must watch Blues Brothers whenever it is on.

I'm also a sucker for anything by Disney (even before I had kids).

AS's "house invasion of ninjas" comment in another thread reminded me. Pretty much any Bruce Lee movie is stellar and up there for me. Enter the Dragon = Outstanding.

And I am a huge James Bond fan. So throw any of those up there for me as well.

Loved Bruce... he was the greatest. I think the new James Bond is the baddest.

"Eyes Wide Shut" is pretty good (Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise).... Dark, erotic flick....

.... It's on Universal HD right now.... I didn't realize that they don't "edit" them for content/nudity/sexuality............ :twisted:

I loved Eyes Wide Shut. Thought it was one of Kubrick's best, and I actually really like his other films.

For some odd reason (maybe not though), most people I meet seem to have a real dislike for his movies, particularly "2001" and "Clockwork". Well everybody seems to like FMJ though.

Its in my top ten as well. How anybody has never seen this movie is beyond me. It has it all.... edgy theme, comedy, ebb and flow time-line, character development..... can't go on.... just rent it, or better yet, buy it.... it will not disappoint.

Boondock Saints was great, everything you guys already mentioned.

Memento was another movie that comes to mind that I thought was really good - twisted and at times a little too confusing just to be - but really, really good.

I've always thought David Fincher's "The Game" was a little masterpiece of suspense and good-old psychological drama. When he woke up down in Mexico in that coffin, I was about ready to burst as he did.

Good stuff. Hey, has anybody seen a sick movie called "Eraserhead" by David Lynch?

WOW! I totally forgot about the game...you are talking about the one with Penn and Douglas right? Yea...that movie is truely an underrated classic. That was one of the best endings I have ever seen on film.

Never saw it but Blue Velvet is a cult classic in these neck of the woods. If anybody has seen this work by Lynch they'll know what I'm talking about. If Eraserhead is anything like Blue Velvet, then I guess I'll have to see it. Velvet is sick, not in a Saw or Hostel kind of way but more psychologically dark sick.

Dennis Hopper is demented in that movie....

I think Rocco was such a character. The cat scene.... and the words out of his mouth "Is it dead?" Quite funny. As for Defoe's portrayal.... genius. He really did steal the movie. On my top ten for sure. It sounds like you weren't wowed. How come?

I think I saw that when it came out in theaters (drive-in actually). My favorite scene was when the blond zombie has to walk over a crate and the top of his head gets chopped by the helicopter's blades... and all his brains starts oozing out. Great movie. I guess I'm with you on "not being really into it" when people talk about Pulp Fiction. Good movie and part of my collection but I thought Reservoir Dogs was a much better film.

DOTD is one of the best horror movies of all time.Plus,it takes place in the Monroeville Mall.Who doesn't love that!!!!!! 8)

Let me add another underrated movie to the list.............Ravenous.Great movie and Guy Pearce is one of the best underappreciated actors of our generation.

For those who do not want to fork over money, it appears someone has posted the entire movie in 10 minute segents on youtube.
