1. Robert Mitchum
2. Irene Dunne
3. Charlie Chaplin
4. James Cagney
5. Cute chicks: Audrey Hepburn, Merle Oberon, Lillian Gish





I love you, Oyster... but, that's bordering on FOUR 90s cult flicks.
Haha, I'm not sure completely sure why but I (subconsciously) love 90's stuff.

That list is miles over my head. Kubrick is one of my favorite directors though.

Oh, and since unintentionally funny movies are one of my favorite things ever, I have an incredible gift to five anyone that has a free hour and a half.

Edit- can't get embedding to work. here's the link... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GDNK9803y8

You can watch the whole thing on youtube. Every scene is absolutely hilarious.

Supremely Under-appreciated List (of popular actors):
1. Tim Robbins - Everyone loves him for Shawshank, and why not, it's a great movie, but he's done a bunch of other really good movies like Human Nature and The Hudsucker Proxy that dont get as much love.
2. Billy Bob Thornton - Bad Santa. Billy Bob rules.
3. Ryan Phillippe - Hurl the gay jokes all you want, but Phillippe has done three movies I really like all in which he was particularly impressive: The Way of the Gun, Igby Goes Down and Homegrown. Crash was enjoyable as well.

To get this far and not have mentioned Dumb & Dumber is a serious travesty.

agreed. In fact, the entertainment forum has a whole thread about it right now:

I know you said you wanted to talk only to flyers fans, but it seemed appropriate

Top 5 Movies, I don't even know. I don't know if I'd call myself a movie nut, but I do take the effort to look for good movies, most of the time being indie (much like with music, anymore I won't listen to any FM radio outside of XPN except sometimes MMR and 104.5). But I do find good stuff every now and then that isn't. I completely reject movies who don't even try to be good, mostly horror films and such. Just not my deal. My friends bust on me all the time for being scared or whatever, but I refuse to spend money on it. If I'm home and someone I like is in a horror movie, I'll watch, but I won't spend money. For this reason, this means I don't see any movies until they hit TV because my friends will usually go out and see things that are just complete crap and I always hear about how bad the movie was.

What I can do is list my top 5 Zooey Deschanel movies that I've seen to date:
1. The Go-Getter
2. Winter Passing
3. Eulogy
4. Manic
5. Flakes

Not sure if they're my favorite, but 5 actors are: Samuel L. Jackson, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg, Paul Rudd, Ryan Reynolds (people bust on him, but he hasn't done much wrong in his career thus far).

5 actresses not named Zooey Deschanel: Isla Fisher, Julianne Moore, Mary-Louise Parker, Scarlet Johansson (although I think her career has taken a step back recently), Ellen Page

I so don't watch movies. At least not any more. I think I'm so ADD that I can't (or rarely) go into a place knowing I have to sit still for 2 hours. That being said, I do like a wide gamut of ****. Form "On Golden Pond" (I have no idea why, but I love it), to anything animated (esp. Pixar), to anything 80's.

2 summers ago I got to go on a special assignment and go on a "wire tap". Basically, I sat in a room with 2 guys and watched movies for 10 hours a day waiting for the drug dealer to make some calls. The day shifts were pretty slow, so all we did was watch movies. The best one -- Irishsniper mentioned -- Boondocks Saints. If ya haven't seen it, it's awesome.

In that case, please, please avoid the new Terminator. Thanks to some sh**ty friends I was forced to endure that entire torture-fest tonight. There is nothing about this movie worth paying for.

Also, to everyone who considers The Dark Knight one of the best movies ever, I hate you (but dont take it personally). I've never seen a more generic movie receive so much praise. The only thing that separated The Dark Knight from Terminator was a well acted villain and a ******** amount of hype.

Watched the movie Election the other day with little expectations and found it ****ing incredible. What an awesome movie. Please go watch it if you enjoy witty dialogue and fantastic views on certain facets of younger life.
