Oh jesus christ this is tough. Let me preface this by saying I'm not a huge movie guy, quality TV shows is more my thing. I still love a good movie though. I'm gonna try to narrow it down to one or two.

Comedy: Wet Hot American Summer is the one that springs to mind first. I'm very picky when it comes to comedies. Its gotta be funny and it's gotta be a good movie in it's own right. There are a lot of alright comedies but very few great, hilarious one in my opinion. WHAS definitely is a great one though, and very underappreciated. I saw Jackass 3D in the theatre while in the army, thats the most I've laughed in the cinema.

Drama: The Shawshank Redemption is an obvious classic on anyones list. There Will Be Blood might be my personal favourite movie of all time. Daniel Day-Lewis is just not of this world. The Deer Hunter always leaves me breathless. Then there are your typical mafia films The Godfather, Goodfellas, Donnie Darko and a lesser known, but personal gem of mine, Miller's Crossing. I've already overstepped my mark I see...

Thriller: No Country For Old Men might just be my favourite thriller ever. It's ******* brilliant. Se7en is an excellent movie that you can rewatch several times. I think The Dark Knight triology are all excellent thrillers also. Plus Die Hard is kind of a guilty pleasure of mine, I watch it every christmas with my dad.

What do we have left... fantasy I don't watch a lot but I do love the LOTR triology. Cheesy thing to admit but the Rohirrim coming to Gondors aid in Return Of The King at the battle of Minas Tirith gets me every time and makes me feel like a little kid, completely lost in the horns and horses and swords.

Quote:
Arise, Arise, Rider's of Theoden. Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered. A sword day, a red day and the sun rises! Ride now! Ride now! Ride for ruin and a red dawn. Death! Death! Death! Forth Eorlingas!
Yes I know it off the top of my head. U mad?

Scarface I feel is somewhat overrated, it's iconic but it's not really that great of a movie, there are better gangster movies and better Pacino movies.

Forrest Gump is a good shout, rewatched it the other day, it's bloody excellent. Also watched Cast Away, surprised how good that was. Tom Hanks is really, really good.

But that is one movie I'm kind of glad I didn't see until I was a little older. I think I got a better appreciation of the overall message. Fantastic movie really.
Braveheart is a classic for sure. Mel Gibson was masterful.

Gladiator mentioned above is another fantastic movie. Great performances.

Hatfields & McCoys is a fantastic mini series, 3 part about 2 hours each and it's done incredibly well. You have amazing performances from so many people in that. I loved it so much I bought it on Blu Ray asap and I have been pimping it out to anyone and everyone. Love it. Costner and Paxton are amazing.

Cannot believe I forgot The Matrix, thats right up there among my favourites ever. I also have to be somewhat boring, but you can't go wrong with a little bit of Pulp Fiction. And Reservior Dogs just for good measure.

Funny enough I just watched Pulp Fiction for the first time a couple weeks ago and I had people outraged at my last job because I didn't see Reservior Dogs, so they brought it to me the next day and demanded it I watch it lol
Both movies are great.

Saving Private Ryan and Forrest Gump are both great movies. Tom Hanks is amazing. His son isn't half bad himself. First time I remember seeing his son is in Orange County, which I think is a decent movie.
Joe vs Volcano is a decent older Hanks movie. Turner and Hooch, Big , I even like League of Their Own.

Have you guys seen Super Troopers? It's hilarious if you haven't. Same guys made Beerfest and Slammin' Salmon but Super Troopers is the best of the group for sure.
