  1. I'll start.

    Zorro the Gay Blade
    Top Secret

    Who's with me? What's on your list?

    Clockwise starring John Cleese
     
  3. Big Night
    Dead Again
    Gattaca
    The Matador
    Signs
    Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind
    Jackie Brown
    Children of Men
     
  4. Don't laugh, but 'Babe - Pig In The City'. It is regarded as a children's film, but I would say it is anything but. If for no other reason than the visuals alone.
     
  5. +1.

    Any movie with Chuck Norris :biggrin:
     
  7. Ride With the Devil
    Munich
     
  8. Chasing Papi.

    It was a big flop for claiming to exploit Hispanic stereotypes (which to a degree they do,) but it plays the three women fighting over one man thing in a way that is clean and yet hilarious.
     
  9. Lantana
    Nine Queens - a film from Argentina
     
  10. Outstanding choice.

    Bunny Wigglesworth, Royal Navy. 'Nuff Said.


    "Shoot to Kill" Sidney Poitier, Tom Berenger.

    "You F.B.I. guys do this kind of sh*t a lot?"
    "Every damn day."
     
  11. Dark City
    The Fifth Element
    The Butcher Boy
    A.I.
    Death To Smoochy
     
  12. One of my choices has to be Stir of Echoes. It got kind of lost in all the hype around The Sixth Sense, which I didn't care for (Me and two others:lol:)

    Following Chuck's movies, Steven Seagall!

    Here's my list:
    Leon: The professional
    La femme Nikita
    The Green Butchers (loved that one, I think it's Danish)
    Hot Fuzz

    That's all that comes to mind...
     
  14. Hot Fuzz was great and so was Shawn of the Dead.

  16. +1 to The Fifth Element, Hot Fuzz, and Leon: The Professional

    I'd like to add Heat (can you really go wrong with any film that has De Niro AND Pachino in it?), Taxi Driver (at least now, a lot of people I talk to haven't seen that film! :eek:), and the Evil Dead series :biggrin:.
     
  17. The Jackal

    They Live

    If you liked the Jackal, you should have a look at 'The day of the Jackal'... The original...
     


  19. didn't know that...

    <goes to netflix>
     
  20. +1 on Shawn of the Dead

    IMO, I would also suggest:

    Adaptation
    Barton Fink
    Big Fish
